    Yes! We definitely need vareity and competitive products among intel and amd systems. More choice for the consumer is always welcome .

    Regarding my earlier comment: It was a general comment and not towards a specific GPU. For an average gamer spending money is a big deal so unless the system collapses they use it instead of buying a new one very frequently.

    I don't want to burst your bubble, but Clevo don't read this or any other threads. What does happen is that they listen to the feedback that direct customers such as we give them on a daily basis and every time we meet. This information often parallels what is posted on various forums, but actually I haven't seen anything posted on this thread which we haven't already raised with Clevo. That's definitely not to say that this thread is pointless - quite the contrary, as I have pointed out before the more customer feedback is gathered the more Clevo direct customers are likely to listen, take on board the feedback and raise similar points with Clevo.

    As discussed in other threads, Ryzen availability is wholely up to AMD ;-)

    The rumours were around a 180W TDP for a 16 core AMD, you could always reverse the cooling on the NP9873 and have the CPU under the vapor chamber and then a little 1050ti where the CPU is :p

    yeah no worries.

    When you are not in Taiwan but get asked for your input the next Clevo's, personally I look at these sort of threads and develop an imagine of what to contribute based on my own thoughts too.
    Probably nothing new being stated, but doesn't hurt to have a thread like this. My feedback was to push for individual fan control. It would be a great feature. some of the other stuff can be done cheap that is mentioned in this thread, too.

    Well if anyone from Clevo is reading... your keyboards SUCK and I'm never buying another taptop from you that has these same flimsy and cramped 15 inch keyboards which you stole from the 15 inch models and slammed in to the bigger beasts

    they need to up the cooling game too

    both in size and qc



    I'd rather focus on cooling first than keyboard

    As I'm sure they have to be aware by now, the BIOS needs major improvement. It's great that a third party (Prema) is taking care of the community, but it shouldn't come down to that in the first place.

    These platforms are suppose to be desktop replacement, so it shouldn't feel any different in operation.

    The stock options have been worked on a fair bit. The newer systems have voltage control up and down along with memory controls and power limits that allow a significant amount of tweaking.

    Clevo has basically the same opportunities as their competition.

    Precision engineering and manufacturing, especially regarding the fit and function of heat sinks, needs to be job #1 rather than a que sera sera affair.

    They also need to not release any more products to production that have firmware that suffers with TDP and power limit throttling. If they cannot get the firmware to the point that it functions properly with no firmware mods, it shouldn't be offered for sale to anyone.

    If ODMs do not have the resources to thoroughly test and verify that what they sell is going to be excellent in every way before releasing it to production and QC spot checks in place to verify the stuff rolling off the assembly line is everything it is supposed to be, then they should find another line of work.

    None of them are doing us any favors by selling mass-produced broken garbage. We would all be better off with nothing than spending money on broken trash.
