    Just had a talk with my chinese friend on wechat when I told him not to buy the MSI GT76 because it has BGA graphics + Optimus. He said it seems like laptops are going backwards and his classmate bought an Alienware 51m and the heat dissipation was terrible.

    More like GPU and CPU power shot up and cooling has not caught up properly with some manufacturers.

    Don't know about cooling not having caught up. There hasn't been any major cooling breakthroughs that have held laptop cooling back, as far as I know. Marketing and cost savings for maximal profits are most likely at fault here, parading "full desktop" CPU/GPU" hardware in a light, thin bezel that runs at a constant crispy 100c.

    I bet if engineers were the people actually in charge, you'd see a return of proper DTR-books.

    Demand for thinner and lighter machines with as you say no major breakthroughs in cooling tech is causing what you see.

    If engineers were purely in charge you would see a lot of bankrupt companies pretty quickly too ;)

    damn thats heavy! pun intended

    aw51m will be fine if they undervolt though. does 2080 allows undervolting?

    You mean recycled to make LGA motherboard for 10th Gen HEDT or Client/Consumer CPU boards?

    Well judging from current affairs, it will most likely be turned into a 22nm Haswell-era Pentium :D

    I think the biggest disappointment in BGA laptops has been the RTX2080 models. Their performance is just downright sad. And to the average PC gamer or consumer who may go drop $2,000 to $3,000 or more on a nice thin laptop probably doesn’t even realize how underpowered it is.

    I though the GTX1080 Max Q in last gen thin laptops was pretty impressive. Especially like the 15” Asus Zephyrus with a 8750H and GTX1080 Max Q. It could easily outpace the GTX1070 desktop class graphics. And if you repasted or used liquid metal and undervolted you could squeeze even more power out of it.

    And now the RTX2080 Max Q is performing identical to the GTX1080 Max Q.

    I think the gtx1080 was really a legendary GPU. And easily one of my favorites of all the years I’ve been in to PC gaming.
