    You got link to the chip you are talking about?

    Wouldn't a 4940MX be better than that chip ?

    You can check taobao for them
    4980HQ would ideally be better as it has L4 cache and a iGPU that is far stronger if you care and is usually around the ~$140 USD mark as far as I could see

    Dunno what you mean by that but alright
    Edit: Guess 4980HQ stock has dried up, they said they were out of stock so I went with a 4860HQ, wonder how much better it is than a 4930MX, probably not too much.

    Its fully unlocked lol
    Likely won't even need to OC given the L4 cache is already a ~10% performance bonus over stock haswell
