    Copped a max-15 off Amazon. Only 2k for a 2070 super max P and 10th gen i7, excited for it to arrive Thursday.

    How good is eluktronics with their LM application? Do they take any proprietary methods to ensure that LM lasts for a long time?

    Ran firestrike on Max-15 w/ rtx 2070 super max-P, is 18,556 a good enough score for this card? I feel like it should be performing a bit better. Let me know if there is any tweaks I should be making.

    Hi, has anyone put 64GB of RAM onto one of these? What brand/module part number did you use?

    (is it running at 2933mhz)

    Thank you

    I use Kingston 2X16Gb running at 2933Mhz.
    Kingston HyperX Impact SO-DIMM DDR4 2933MHz 2x16GB (HX429S17IBK2/32)

    I think these work to
    Kingston HyperX Impact SO-DIMM DDR4 2933MHz 2x32GB (HX429S17IBK2/64)

    Hello! im almost buying a PCS Vyper 17 here in Germany (same as Max-17) with i7-10875H, RTX2070 Super, 32GB Ram, 1TB SSD for 1850€, but I asked the support which display does it use, and apparently its a NV173FHM-N44. It seems to be a decent IPS display (300cd/m2, 1/1200, EDelta 2.5-4.0, 92% sRGB, 60% AdobeRGB), but it does use PWM at 940-990Hz.

    https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/screen-part-number/NV173FHM-N44/

    Im an architect and casual gamer, so I do use the laptop frequently for long periods, and while color accuracy is important, I dont want to pay premium +400€ for the MSI GS75 with 100% sRGB / 68% AdobeRGB or even more for the Aero 17 HDR with Max-Q GPU and 100% sRGB / 88% AdobeRGB but 4K (with better color reproduction but lower response time / 60hz), or go down to 15,6" for the MSI GS66. On the other side, I actually use a 6 years old MSI GS60 2PC with a quite good display...and I wont like to buy a new laptop with a worse display.

    So is PWM at those frequencies noticeable? would you recommend me this laptop?

    These are some reviews of laptops with the same screen:

    Many thanks! :)

    i have pcs one with that screen... no problem at all, is a great screen, no flickering noticeable from pws (is an high frequencie that you can't really notice except some rare person). I am coming from a rog with no pwm and similer srgb coverage and luminosity, and the two screens are pretty much the same... maybe rog was a bit too contrasty compared to this but in terms of colors are very similar as they srgb gamut. So the only way to have a better display will be some 4k 90% rgb panels, or oled ones but both are much costier and not worst for me... you can invest the same price to buy an external and much better monitor to use at home...

    Does the Max-17 eluktroboost actually do anything at all? Supposedly the GPU is supposed to get an additional 35W in beast mode, but there are several posts where the benchmarks do not support this at all. Here's B.O.B.'s post that shows the extra 35W power draw.



    I've found several posts of people posting their benchmarks and more often than not they are lower than the category average for the RTX 2070 Max-P and the RTX 2070 Super Max-P.


    For the RTX 2070 the users were getting Time Spy graphics scores in the range ~7500-7600, which is only average for the category.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/GamingLaptops/comments/epayuo/first_impression_eluktronics_max17/

    https://www.reddit.com/r/GamingLapt...retty_happy_with_these_results_what_you_guys/ read comment thread by u/Musical_Mufasa



    For the RTX 2070 Super Max-P the users were getting Time Spy graphics ~8100-8200 and for Fire Strike graphics they were getting ~20,000. These benchmarks were run with turbo on.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/GamingLapt...uktronics_max_17_2070_super_maxp_compared_to/

    https://www.reddit.com/r/GamingLapt...uktronics_max17_covert_gamer_benchmarks_2070/

    Meanwhile from Notebookcheck the category average/media values were ~8300 and ~22,000 respectively.

    You can check category averages for the given specs here.

    https://www.3dmark.com/search#advan...ck=&maxGpuMemClock=&minCpuClock=&maxCpuClock=

    So not only does it seem eluktroboost isn't providing an additional +35W to the GPU, but it seems these laptops are performing at best average for the category for the RTX 2070 Max-P and and worse than all comparable models using the RTX 2070 Super Max-P.

    It would be good to have some discussion on this because it seems a bit misleading to advertise extra power on these laptops when users are not getting the extra performance boost.

    Can people who own the Max-17 run some benchmarks so that we can gather a bit more data. Run Time Spy and Fire Strike in discrete GPU mode, beast mode, and max fans. Make sure there are no background apps running when running these benchmarks. Then post your results here.
