    This should compete nicely with the thin and lights featuring a proper battery.

    MAX FAN BUG!
    Edit Oct 15th 2019 BIOS 0052 Removes this "feature"


    GPU thermal limitation: I have provided substantial evidence to support the concerns regarding this and how it can effect the perception of this laptop ultimately affecting sales and returns. However, this is a collaboration project with intel and it's their BIOS. As of right now, we're trying to get this increased towards the standard 87c. My advice, don't buy this laptop with the expectation of this becoming a reality.

    There's so much more to come but for now, feast your eyes on a Stock thermal paste MAG-15 tuned up by yours truly below :)

    Apex Legends settings set per my liking of course.

    CPU UV -.125 Core/Cache PL limits to 35w
    GPU Voltage Curve Lock at .800v @ 1700Mhz
    Max Fan at 52dB

    Those in doubt can watch the full gameplay in an unlisted video here. Settings in the description

    Aero 15 (early 2019) vs MAG-15

    MAG-15
    Weight Winner 4.15lbs
    Footprint Winner Razer Blade size
    Build Material Winner Magnesium Alloy
    Fingerprints Winner Stays super clean!
    Trackpad Winner Slightly larger, easy to disable, double-tap top left
    Windows Hello Winner IR camera's rock!
    CPU Performance Winner CPU Performance after our CC updates should suit everyone :)
    Docked
    Winner AERO cannot perform well with its lid closed

    Battery Life Tie Both set a high standard
    Thermals Tie The MAG is a work in progress

    AERO 15
    Fan Acoustics Winner 4dB quieter 48 vs 52
    Port Selection Winner UHSII and an extra USB-C
    Software Winner Detailed + Fan Control
    GPU Performance Winner Higher GPU temp throttle limit
    Display Winner Individually Pantone Calibrated but the MAG is 30-40 nits brighter
    Speaker Audio Winner No question The AERO speaker audio is actually very good, but not loud
    PSU Size Winner since it's smaller

    Is that what it does? Basically a OC of the GPU? CPU too?
    Anyone have any comparisons.?
    Thanks for the reply that answered some of my questions.

    Just GPU I believe. If the CPU is locked, it stays locked. No extra feature will unlock it.

    I'm mildy worried about the chasis stability, watching dave's video you can see the laptop flex as he moves it about.

    Wish this was announced sooner. I went with a MBP to hit the near 4lbs mark. There was nothing out there except the MSI GS65 8th gen and the flipped mobo was a non-starter for me.

    I hope more manufactures take its approach. All the current thin and light laptops are nearly 5lb. Lots of thin but not so light.

    I just realized Dave did the whole video with no screws in the bottom so he could access the inside, that may be the reason why it flexes.


    Hopefully...

    That’s a huge deal actually. I’ve had the screws out of the Aero 15 for weeks till I had the time to make some internal changes. When I took some compressed air to the keyboard and internals the flex was very evident when holding the chassis with one hand at it’s corner.

    Good eye!

    Strange, there's no RTX 2060 version. Also, I wonder if the Elukboost works the same way as in the Mech lineup. Not to mention, since this was designed with Intel, would other resellers get this feature like XMG?

    Usually the aero 15 is known for its solid build, so the flex on the mag-15 is probably a non-issue. Thanks Bob.

    Do you think those ridiculously good temps are from liquid metal? Being as its from eluktronics?
