    Where have they talked about this ?

    Even I am unaware of a SLI version in the works, though we did have things like an AMD version in the works which I assume is out of the question now.

    It was somewhere in this thread.

    They mentioned a 17" SLI version of the Tornado F5 being released later this year. Although a more recent post I saw somewhere here mentioned early 2019 now but I can't find it.

    These are all I can find for now, but 17" model is definitely coming:

    F7 same as GT73 chassis. Max is 1070 in SLI. Forget 1080/2080SLI with +100w Intel 8 core i7 working properly without major changes.

    Let us know what you learn. If it's GT73VR based with only GTX 1080 or SLI 1070 it will be a disappointment.

    I think you mean GT75VR based...the GT73VR doesn't support SLi. In any event, the GT83VR is the only MSI model that supports Dual nVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080's in SLi.

    The GT73VR supports SLI in 1070 format only. The CM238 version EC has provisions for exceeding the 330W system limit (at least 460W according to sirgeorge) if both PSU's are detected as connected; if one is removed, the power limit becomes 230W. The HM175 version, which has no SLI SKU, has a max power cap of 330W; the CPU will throttle to 800 mhz if this cap is exceeded.

    The bottom line is, only the CM236 version of the GT73VR supported SLi, and it has been discontinued since about August of last year...so an F7 based on that chassis is not likely, and even if it were, it would still be limited to no Dual nVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080's in SLi.

    However talking about the motherboard, BIOS, EC and power limits for BGA platforms does not relate to the F7, or the F5 / EVOC 16L-G-1080. These are LGA laptops with design specs all their own.

    The F7, and future F5 / EVOC 16L-G-1080, will be based, assuming they ever launch, on the GT75VR, and GT63VR, with the Z390 chipset. Given the extra thermals, it is highly unlikely we will see the F7 support Dual nVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 in SLi...but if it does, get ready for a hot potato with no whining allowed.

    SLi is a waste of money... there is only bunch of games which really use it... majority shuttering, or pushing them for 50-60%... on the top of that, they produce so much heat... I am saying that, because I used to be an SLI fan, but by the end of day it is just not worth it... always going for the high end vga it is still cheaper and more efficient (but that's my opinion ofc)
