    That's a load of crap.

    First of all, the "power defect" isn't an actual defect. It's the powerlimit throttling which we can see on any notebook out there, infact even desktop cards are power limited. The whole battery drain and makes them worse claim is also just a normal statement, of course a dedicated GPU will heavily drain batterylife, hell the P870TM cannot even handle 30minutes on battery while playing a game.

    To the whole temperature thing, while it's true that these notebooks run hot, all notebooks do. Once you repasted the GL502VS you will have aceptable temperatures. If you want good temperatures then cutting 2 holes under the fan will do. Thanks to the extremely low consumption of the CPU, the shared heatsink design actually works quite well on this notebook causing after repaste and cutting 2 holes making it rather cool.

    It'll need more than a repaste imo. I have the GL702VS and to get my temps to be acceptable when gaming, I have to do a lot of tweaks...namely disabling turbo boost, vent holes where the bottom fans are, limit fps to 60, and laptop cooler. Once you do these things the temps are a bit more acceptable. But I like to leave fans on auto if at all possible and rather not stress system since it's my main rig. With all the tweaks above I can play pubg at 60fps at 70c, and more optimized games at around 65c with fans left on auto. Even with all the tweaks I did when I run prime 95 blend test 100% cpu, and furmark at the same time...even with laptop cooler fans at 100% and laptop fans at 100% still seeing throttling after 10 minutes from 3.5 to 3.1ghz as temps approach 80c and peaked at 85c. That's not bad I guess, it's a worse case scenario test, there isn't a program that is going to give me 100% cpu and gpu usage. At the end of the day I can't expect desktop temperatures out of a air cooled laptop that is quite thin for a gaming laptop any way.
