    On my country i have possibility to buy the version 8RG with 8750H and GTX1080, but i also have the version 8RF with 8850H with GTX 1070...

    My doublt is since the pc is only for gaming, should i decide to buy the version that comes with GTX 1080?

    Thanks.

    Depends really what games you play, if you want to be equipped for the newest games, thena 1080 is the way to go.

    in terms of gaming GPU is more important than CPU.

    So, with 6 cores the max frequency for a 8750H will be 3.9GHz since the cpu is locked, but what is the max for a 8850H? HIDevolution says that with some tweaks the max frequency that they got was 4.4Ghz....will be this the maximum for a 8850H?

    Again, GPU matters more in games than CPU. Almost no game utilizes the CPU to its fullest extent.

    If those H CPU's are like almost all other HQ's, you have 2 free bins, maybe there are 3 or 4 free bins that you can use with XTU/TS, besides that, you are TDP limited.

    300 or 400Mhz are nothing if you end CPU constrained in some game, but that will take a long, long time, or a pretty crappy console port..

    Consoles are still using cpu's from the stone age, most games are made with consoles in mind, so, dont stress 2 much, go for the best GPU you can, or get the 8850H, sell the 1070, buy a 1080, best of both worlds, sad that there is no HK 8th gen laptop for sale in Portugal.

    For me it depends on output resolution right now, if the display I'm gaming on is 1440p or less I want a 1070, if 4K then I want a 1080. Naturally if you want to max everything out you'll go with a 1080 no matter what, but from a "do you really need this" perspective I'd say a 1070 is fine for most medium-high level gaming at standard resolutions.

    But since 8750H is in some way unlocked like 8850H will be a good choice i think.

    I would get the GTX1080 any day. The CPUs are very capable on their own, and the little extra speed on the higher 8850H will probably be useless because it's bound to have TDP locks. Just like all H CPUs from intel perform the same under stress as they all downclock to match TDP, but only the unlocked ones shine.
