    Not all of them apparently. Mine has an AUO panel, which is terrible btw.

    Got my GE75 with 2080 today. So far very impressed. Setup and installs all went fine. Performance seems excellent. Fan noise is there, but I'm OK with it (under load its on a part with my GT80, but less intrusive as the fans are not so large).

    I have noticed one thing with the display though, which I'm not sure if its normal? Its a 144hz display, but I was thinking of running it at 60fps (or ideally 72hz) to reduce load on GPU and hopefully cause less heat / fan noise. In some games I have the option of setting the screen refresh rate (Assassins Creed Odyssey, Division 2 etc). Both give me the option of either 144hz or 60hz only though. If I set it to 60hz, its VERY smooth, but when I pan the view around there is noticeable smearing on the image - especially on the edges of objects - either black smearing or white smearing depending on the object. If I set the screen refresh to 144hz the smearing is not present. I can set to 144hz then cap the framerate to 60fps, but in my mind that does not appear quite as smooth as when I set the refresh to 60hz, but I do avoid the smearing effect by having it set to the native refresh of 144hz.

    Anyone else noticed similar, and have any tips / workarounds. I have no idea which of the two panels my laptop has. Is there any software that will tell me?

    Its listed in Device Manager/ Montors/Properties/Hardware ID of the internal screen.

    I would just limit my frames to 72 using rivatuner or another program. Run the screen at 144hz .
    These screens dont have fast response times at 60hz.

    You can add a custom resolution in the Intel control panel with whatever Hz you want. Then it should show in game as an option, or instead if you run windowed mode and you run your desktop in that mode it will run at that refresh. I've done this for years for the purpose you mention of reducing heat, but I wanted something above 60. I've used 85 and 100 many times as compromises on high refresh panels.

    Just tried that via the Intel display panel, but it gives an error saying "The custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwith capacity"....

    Tried to set 72 and 75hz, same error message on both.

    Try reversing the height and width numbers. So 1920 height and 1080 width, see if that works.

    Same error, its weird.

    For the time being in Division 2, I've set a framerate cap to 70 (you can only set it in multiples of 5).

    70fps cap on 144hz refresh is close enough to half the refresh that its pretty OK I think.

    According to HWiNFO, my CPU is hitting 95-96c and thermal throttling during gaming. Laptop is stock from factory. Set to shift sport mode on the current profile (the default).

    I don't notice any performance impact when this happens, so in practice is it anything to worry about?

    Pwm is very high on this laptop screen and notebookcheck are saying there is a noticeable flicker at low brightness it’s 26000 MHz !!!!! Where Asus ROG GL704gw has no PWM (flicker free). Question are you noticing flickering in low brightness? I just cancelled my order at Amazon because of this, as I cannot see the laptop live in my country as it’s not available
