    Wait until the new notebooks are out. RTX notebooks are going to drop prices.

    Other than that WT 75 is a nice notebook.

    I believe MSI had all their new laptops already shown at CES and the GT75 was the top end model, i9 / 2080. Enless their is some secret GT83 with 2080 SLI idk lol.

    New models where announced. Despite having the same name (GS65, GT75 etc) they have either small or big changes. New machines generally all sport RTX GPUs, and some like the GS75 are entirely new models. The GS65 got a bit changed chassis, bigger touchpad and perhaps cooling pipes added?

    If you are into high end machines, it's probably the best to use a GT75, as it will have the max performance you expect from your machine. Almost every other non GT will use either a lower end GPU or a Max Q version, and will have more limits in power or thermals.

    Sadly the RTX GPUs will not be a good jump in performance, imo, but still a single RTX 2080 should be good enough imo.

    Do you think I will see a big jump in performance going from my system with a GTX 1080 to the same system with the same CPU but with the RTX 2080 or not worth it in your opinion?

    the one thing that temps me other than the upgraded GPU is the 144hz screen.

    From all the news I have seen regarding the new RTX GPUs, you will probably see anywhere from 10 to 25% performance upgrade, but it will depend on how limited they implement the laptop versions. The Max Q line sounds very VERY limited, being only 20% faster than a max Q 1080.

    BUT! Since the GT75 uses the full 2080, the performance advantage will be good for high refresh rate and high resolution, so you might consistently see 20% or more performance upgrade. I'd say its worth it, but thats because I do use a 4K monitor hahaha and I expect a bigger improvement there over my OC'd 1080.

    To be honest with you, I've been using 60hz or 75hz screens for a while now. the 75hz screen I could feel a big difference going from 60hz then I got excited seeing that my GT73VR Titan Pro and GT75 Titan have a 120hz screen but I never felt the smoothness of that 120hz. I don't know if it's the screen that MSI choose which is crap or what but man the other day I was at the mall and saw some cheap Huawei 15 inch laptop, I didn't check its refresh rate, it had a glossy screen rather than matte but man, it was buttery smooth, like on a whole different level of smoothness and I felt kinda jealous that an entry level laptop has a screen that is night and day better than mine.

    I do notice the difference with our 120hz screens, compared to regular and 75hz ones, but it is true that it is not the best display and that some of the new 144hz are better, not only due to higher refresh but response time, reducing ghosting, and more.

    If these new models are also packing new GPUs and new Screens, we are going to see a decent bump in quality, even if performance is a smaller jump.
