    Hi folks,
    I read many reviews and watched Youtube videos about different brands of gaming notebooks. I noticed that ALMOST every of them contains i7 8750H which is running hot like a hell causing many issues. It is barely coolable and manufacturers are hopeless generally.

    Why does not Intel have any other Cpu for gaming notebooks or in other words, why do laptop manufacturers appear to be obliged to stick with 8750H as if they all have an agreement with Intel focusing on that thermally crappiest Cpu ever...

    I know i7 7700HQ abit more tamed but it is limited of course.

    I would love to see Ryzen 7 series on mobile more wide than now.

    The only ryzen options are basically DTR's so if you need battery life complimented with good performance then it may not fit your needs.

    But I agree wish we had more ryzen based options available.

    There are some Lenovo Y740 models with i5 8300 available, that might be an option for you. However that chassis seems to be able to cool the hexacore just as well unlike most slim and light gaming machines. The gaming performance hit is acceptable i guess and you can save about 200 eur (here in europe at least).

    there are desktop CPU laptop as well. you can cool them, much better than 8750h 5W. it depends on whether you know-how-to(undervolt+repaste+delid) or which online stores you buy from.(for example whether they give you an option to re-paste thermals)
    check clevo ones..with know-how-to ,you can even get better cpu like 8700K(better than i9 8950hk), to have a great thermal and performance at the same time;check steve's video:


    these are the temperatures :

    this graph in 2 columns show all 8th & 9th gen cpu(from top ,most powerful to least) :

    so,you can choose i5 8500 or 8600 65W,equivalent to 8750H, or go for 8700 65W,8700K,9600K 95W for more powerful processor,you may also choose i5 8400,which is more powerful than 7820HQ but a little less than 8750H;which in return is easier to get optimal thermal .
    there are 35W cpu's as well,like 8100t up to 8700T which performs around i5 8400-8500.
    the clevo models with desktop CPU:
    15" models:
    NB50TK gtx1050ti / NB50TL MX150 / NB50TJ GTX1050 / N950 GTX1060 / P751TM&P750TM(up to 95W cpu)
    16" models:
    NB60TK GTX1050Ti / N960TD RTX2060 / N960TF RTX2070
    17" models:
    NB70TK GTX1050Ti / N970TD RTX2060 / N970TF RTX2070

    Did you look at the Acer Helios 500 AMD-alternative? It received a lot of praise for thermals and performance on Notebookcheck.
