    I figured the 9700k was pretty close to the 8950hk but maybe the gap is larger. Either way $500 is still a big difference. Oddly I do not see a 2080 / FHD / 9980hk config for the GT75.

    Considering a 45W specified TDP and 6 cores, imo the difference would be noticeable at the very least considering the 2 extra cores.
    even with no HT, 8 physical cores will outperform 6 hyperthreaded cores isnt it? the 500$ gap seems huge though.

    The 12 thread vs 8 thread comes out in benchmarks and multi-app usage, plus given the option I would have opted for the higher core count 8c/16t 9900k in the top optioned models, so again, $1000-$1500 difference as quoted by MSI when there was still 2-3 months before the GT76 models / pricing was made available for trade-in.

    And, again, I'd still choose the Titan-013 GT75 over the GT76's for $1000 less on trade-in.

    Likely as not, although I haven't asked, the trade-in options for GT75 are now or will soon be the 9th gen i7/i9 8c/16t H , and it looks like MSRP is also $1000 more...

    MSI GT75 Titan 4K-247 17.3" Gaming Laptop, 4K G-Sync Display, Intel Core i9-9980HK, NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080, 64GB, 1TB NVMe SSD + 1TB HDD, Thunderbolt 3
    https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GT75-4K-247-i9-9980HK-Thunderbolt/dp/B07Q42ZLMM

    That 4k screen model is currently the only i9-9980HK GT75 offered, so I'd still have needed to wait even longer for the 1080p / 1440p model to arrive, sometime months away from now?

    That MSI GT75 Titan 4K-247 is still a better choice for me than the GT76's, but I would have had to wait for the 1080p/1440p sku's with less RAM / storage to bring the price down.

    Months ago, it's all water under the bridge for me. :)

    The 9700k does make a big difference due to that TDP especially in terms of sustained turbo and single core speeds.

    See... The soldered processors in the Aw17R4, same vintage as above have start it's way to hardware heaven:) And the TRIPOD heatsink mess doesn't exactly help it to run cooler. Yeah, Planned obsolescence.

    Where can I get a 17 r4 mobo?

    Yeah, bro @Mr. Fox The Ugly truth about Jokebooks.

    I have swapped from 6700K-7700K-8700K and now to 9900K in same old chassis, but not because of dead processors.

    Truth, yes. But, calling it "ugly" is too kind.

    I'm not so good in finding proper names in english. I'm too kind:)

    But one thing for sure the soldered Coffee lake processor in newer Aw models won't get longer lifespan than the predecessors with Dell's new touch:D Aa I said in my previous post... It's Planned obsolescence when the engineers save on costs (not design proper cooling).

    Your choice of words was perfect Brother @Papusan and it is always better to be too kind than to be unkind.

    New AW models not designed last more than 3yrs. My M17x R3 from 2011 still works (well...display got plenty of dead pixels but it works). For me 17x R3 was the last easy to maintain model. After that I switched to Clevo P series.
