    Yup, the standard specs are good enough to have without the extra concerns. Can't wait to abuse these beasts!

    Yeah, I was talking about the internal screen - laptop display. :)

    Not just Nvidia, Intel, and of course - AMD are supporting VESA Adaptive Sync => FreeSync. :)

    Same, think I will go with this over the GT75 and the Zephyrus S GX701. Zephyrus looks nice but my bad experience with the Hero ii has me turned off + maxq and $600 more.

    If all the newer laptop screens support VESA adaptive-sync then even better, but for some reason I do not think it will be like this right away, where pretty much any laptop can enable G-sync indepedent of being marketed as such or includes the use of the iGPU with optimus currently.

    That's actually the very idea of supporting VESA Adaptive Sync, so Nvidia can support non-G-sync displays with Adaptive Sync... although in the Nvidia Control Panel it'll say some form of "G-sync" instead of FreeSync or VESA Adaptive Sync.

    IDK what the ratio of laptop displays are that support VESA Adaptive Sync though, so, YMMV?

    If everyone gets on board VESA Adaptive Sync I would imagine more display manufacturers would be motivated to include it, and the price would go down (if it's even an issue now).

    Fun stuff, standards and stuff. :)

    So hopefully in the future, all notebooks will support adaptive sync, even with the intel iGPU and Nvidia dGPU combo. Not there yet.

    It’s a shame that the new GS65/GS75 do not have GSync.
    I was hoping with the new GPU’s they would.

    Yea, optimus needs to be trashed. Who buys a gaming laptop looking for battery life.

    Well many want one machine for productivity and gaming, so yes battery life can be important. I mean who buys these super thin & light models only for gaming?

    Why not have both?
    How hard is it to add a Mux Switch and it can’t cost too much money, couple of bucks I’m guessing.
