    Specs are here from the Gigabyte Official Site - tried to copy it but it won't let me:

    https://www.gigabyte.com/Laptop/AERO-15--RTX-20-Series#sp

    Looking forward to it - doesn't state as MaxQ, but when they brought out the AERO 15 RTX2080 on stage last night during the NVIDIA CES presentation it looked great. And I really liked it was able to do all that while on battery.

    Why not the 8850h? 4.0Ghz 6c12t would be huge in terms of bragging rights not to mention would make selling this machine much easier if properly marketed.

    With the same chasis, I don't expect the performance will be ok. The gen8 is already throttling at max temperature.

    Yeah, I have to say this is dissapointing. Almost no chassis update.

    RAM ships with samsung to reviewer than some no brand one to consumer. RAM is probably is going to picky.
    Wonder when will they update the RAM profile and the touchpad driver for the v8

    So basically 99% the same with new CPU + GPU which of course can't be easily replaced on current version.
