    That would be amazing lol.

    I'd love to have a 17" gaming laptop in a Milspec style form factor.

    Imagine what you could cram into something like that ^ if you stripped away the rugged bits and increased it's size to a 17" form factor.

    To me, gaming laptops are supposed to be desktop replacements. I'm willing to sacrifice dimensions almost completely in favor of processing power.

    As long as the laptop is significantly easier to move around compared to a full tower PC with a desktop monitor, keyboard, mouse, and UPS, I'm happy.

    If I wanted something thin and light, then I wouldn't be gaming on it.

    And then complain it either runs hot and the heatsink is insufficient

    or that a mere (e.g.) 300W CPU firmware power limit is nerfing it

    ;p

    if a company gonna put 7980xe into a laptop they gotta prepare a giant CPU heatsink with at least 3 fans working on it lol. clevo's dual 780w + converter would work just fine.

    You would need an entire 987x based cooling system for the CPU....

    Some of us need the HEDT in a DTR. GPU horsepower is not necessarily a priority for professional developers - however, there are exceptions.

    But what most people of my ilk are looking for are Octo core CPUs in a mobile form factor. Makes it a lot easier to head out to customer sites, give demos, work at home, etc. if the machine is easy to transport. self-contained, etc.
