    Considering that mxm (the design of the actual slot) was designed around 75w like the desktop the slot does pretty well considering.

    oh really? havent they updated the MXM slot in later revisions to support higher wattages? iirc something like 150W peak and 125W continuous load?

    How would you do that without a different slot? You can mess with the supply circuitry but the slot itself has limits.

    i was thinking along the lines of remapping slot contacts towards higher power delivery. analogously to usb 1/2/3 etc. with downwards but no upwards compatibility in terms of bandwidth and power delivery. im no electrical engineer though :D

    so if the mxm slot is only engineered for 75W, how can it possibly take a 980M at 125W stock and 150W overclocked without any issues? o_O u cant tell me that engineers were like "meh, whatevs, let beat the crap out of it for the funsies!" designing 100W+ cards for years on end for a 75W slot....?

    You had the old mxm 1 standard which could have extra tabs and that was less fun than mxm 2.

    http://www.eurocom.com/ec/benchmark(239)SkyX4C

    Some benchmarks on the eurocom site with 9700k and RTX 2080. I looked up the Firestrike ID in particular, and it looks to be reaching a graphics score (26k) just short of what the handful of users reporting are showing for the P775 (~27k+). Also TimeSpy. Lower core clock achieved? Really unfortunate that the notebook RTX categories doesn't seem to be working still so it's hard to compare.

    Physics scores are a bit less than the expected value for a 9700k, I think, but I have no idea if that's still good for a laptop.

    I think my takeaway is that the P75x chassis isn't throttling nearly as much as I thought it would with the new heatsinks. But it's still a 15.6" laptop.

    Note that it doesn't say what kind of tweaking they might have done. I assume it's with their unlocked bios... can someone more adept at this see signs of the usual Clevo bios power limits?

    Edit: http://www.eurocom.com/ec/benchmark(238)SkyX7C

    The P775 graphics scores are worse? Maybe too hot with the 9900k? Can't see the ID to look.

    Also perusing vendors, I see this coming up as the P750TM-G1/2/3 (Sager NP9156-G1/2/3).

    Given the thermal challenges, I'm wondering why most vendors seem to be offering only 9th gen CPUs (9600k/9700k/9900k) as part of their configurations. Why no 8700k? Does the heatsink not fit or something?

    marketing, 9th gen is newer than 8th as for factual performance, the 9700K is basically equivalent to the 8700K, same goes for power draw, so why bother to include the latter?
