    So the 2070S MQ is a better choice?

    Many other people also told me that...

    First of all, use the multi-quote button if you wish to respond to multiple people. Don't create separate posts.

    You're looking at this the wrong way: It costs 20% more for just an 8% performance improvement.

    Sometimes I have a hard time telling apart the Max-Q versions of the RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super in benchmarks. The same was true of their non-Super predecessors. I'd stick to the RTX 2070 for that reason unless the RTX 2080 is a free upgrade.

    Ooh, interesting POV, hadn’t considered it that way. It’s now more clear that it may not be worth

    edit: sorry, I didn’t see the multi quote, I will use it in next answers

    The only RTX 2080S Max q here in Mexico at the same price range is also an MSI GS66 but with an i7-10750h and the 2080S MQ, in which I would loose a lot of processing power that I could use for my rendering/Unreal engine needs, don’t you think so?

    Existing GPUs are not going to suddenly be unusable, you'll still be able to get years out of a 20 series as long a you don't have to have the absolute latest and greatest.

    Not sure if it's available in Mexico, but there's the Eluktronics MAX-17, which has the i7 10875H and a full 115W RTX 2070 Super. Eluktronics in particular hardware modifies the GPU so it can pull even more wattage so you'll get an even bigger performance bump. It's a 17-inch model, but its form factor is surprisingly close to that of a 15. It's also remarkably thin and very light for its size. If this model is not available, the same chassis is also used in the Maingear Element 2-EL3, and I know they ship internationally.

    I have checked out a lot of options and sadly I can only buy a laptop from Mexican stores, why? Well importation laws suck here in Mexico and many companies ask you to fill in many papers and permits in order to ship here. That process and a tax of 19% from the whole product I have to pay to bring it here is what stopped me from buying a Sager, Eluktroniks is a company that simply decided not to ship Mexico

    last time I checked 99 percent of games were ports. maybe im wrong but i think games will be more demanding than ever before and the current 2080 wont cut it...maybe at 1080p will be fine but 4k no way.
