    This is it sir. No other laptop does 12 or 16 cores and has that much cpu power while being able to have more then enough gpu power for games and solid works. Just keep in mind that if you do put in a 16 core that it will have to be underclocked, but thats all multi threaded performance right there, and I would imagine you could disable in bios half the cores to get the frequency seen in 6 or 8 core gaming cpu's,

    Update: doing some digging being myself curious, not alot of retailers sell the 16 core version. Origin PC in north america does. XMG in europe does as well. Its probably vital that it comes from a reseller given the possible bios issues you might run into, and reliance on premamod I assume, but thats just speculation on my part.

    Being honest with the 12Core I would be happy, the GPU is a RTX2070, right?

    So you might have seen me from http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/searching-for-a-new-laptop-for-flight-simming-work.833566/, I am still comparing options of laptops for my work/gaming. I would like feedback for these options.
    There is an important price difference, but I don't know if it is worth it for the performance gained on the i9.
    Here are both configurations:
    SAHER NP8358F2-S ($2000)
    Display 1080p 144hz
    -I7-10875H
    -2070 Super 8GB
    32GB RAM (2x16)
    2tb ssd
    MSI GS75: ($2750)
    Display 1080p 300hz
    -I9-10980HK
    -2070 Super 8GB
    32GB RAM (2x16)
    1tb ssd
    I will use it for:
    -Gaming (Flight Simming) (1080P at Max), I want to be gaming for 3 years at max 1080p
    -Programming
    -Solidworks
    -Unreal Engine 4
    -Photoshop
    -3d Modelling
    -Substance Painter
    -Studying
    Thanks for your feedback!

    I am the person of this thread http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/searching-for-a-new-laptop-for-flight-simming-work.833566/
    If you haven't seen the post I need a laptop where I can do this things (in order of importance) :
    -Gaming (Flight Simming) (1080P at Max), I want to be gaming for 3 years at max 1080p (Smooth FPS)

    -Unreal Engine 4
    -Programming
    -Studying
    -Solidworks
    -Photoshop
    -3d Modelling
    -Substance Painter



    I have 2 options: The Sager NP8358F2-S (i7-10875H,32GB RAM, 2070 SUPER 8GB and 2TB SSD) and the Xotic G58AF.(RYZEN 9 3700X, 32GB RAM, 2070 and 2TB SSD).
    Which would be better for my tasks and why? And if there any other options please let me know.
