    400W because you had SLI as a reason.

    A larger machine needs a proper reason to exist, I've covered this before. Just ramping up clocks for rapidly diminishing gains is not a good enough reason to dissipate more.

    Trading for example 40-50W to gain 100Mhz is not a wise move unless the sole reason is to post print screens to hwbot..

    Absolutely. But sometimes is so hard to resist the urge of not being on top with the highest clock. Personally I always aim for the best stable overclock, don't care about the highest clock.

    Not for the average user. But 40-50W to a bencher is
    Yup, 200W TDP and clock block 4.0, just in case you mange to beat nVidias power limits.

    Man I don't know how much more of this crap I can put up with. Here's to hoping the X170 will be the desktop killer we want, but if there isn't any laptop equipped with an Ampere GPU worth buying
    (once they come out that is), I may just say screw it and build myself an ultraportable battery powered gaming desktop.

    If I do, I'll definitely be showing off that setup in a post in the desktop hardware section with instructions and a parts list so you guys can escape from the madness with me.

    It won't be a desktop killer, I can spare you that thought immediately. It will still be a formidable DTR, but there is just no way to compete with desktop when nVidia stacks the deck against us from the start.

    If you absolutely need an Jokebook. Here is a few choices to avoid support lackluster tech. Pick your poison and be happy you don't help the notebook manufacturers to continue the sick trend. Another option is continue to use your phone for web, gaming or emails. The choice is yours @Mr. Fox @Ashtrix +++

    The best cheap laptops for $350 or less in 2020 zdnet.com | Today

    Pick of the best $350-or-less budget laptops and convertibles. $350 is pricey and on the upper side but a hell lot better than go over the $500 target all should avoid.


    Not everyone wants to pay thousands of dollars for a new laptop jokebook.

    Some are happy with cheap and cheerful systems that just get the job done without bells and whistles or fancy branding. Here are a handful of Windows 10 laptops, all priced under $320, and are perfect for most day-to-day tasks... Why pay more for same awful tech?

    I'm going under 1500$. Not spending more than 3000$.
    Cheaper laptops have upgradeable RAM DIMMs and SSDs.

    Depends what you mean by compete. You can get a similar game experience.
