    That's why I'm going to wait. Hopefully by the time we know, decent new or used ones could be had for less than $350.

    Once I get confirmation the bios for the f5 supports the i9, I will definitely post benchmarks, thermals, etc. For me if I can upgrade to the i9 there is not much more I could ask from this model laptop, short of supporting the rtx gpus which I highly doubt will be possible.

    Is it possible to upgrade the WiFi card in this thing without having to remove the CPU heatsink?

    I think no, you must disassemble the heatsink.
    Are you regretting your sold one? ^_^

    Guys just for research purposes, how much difference of performance drop can I see if I switched from GTX 1080 to GTX 1070?

    Can someone post photos of their GTX 1070 without heatsink on top? I want to see if it is compatible with my Chinese heatsink.

    Update of 8700K, tapes are in place.

    Mobile performance is similar to their desktop counterparts. Just watch a few videos comparing them. I recommend Digital Foundry's YT channel.
