    Asus has an exclusive deal for the 1080 Max-Q so you will be waiting a long time for MSI to deliver.

    Great, I had forgotten this detail :vbmad:. I don't like and I don't want a 15,6" laptop, only 17,3" laptop for me. If Asus make a 17,3" of his Zephyrus, why not, but I don't believe that they will make it.

    So, I will request from MSI what they intend to do, because currently, after all this waiting and on several occasions this MSI GS73VR 7RG, the result is rather disappointing, no G-Sync display, no 3ms display, no HDR display, no full GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 Max Q ... very disappointed.

    Dont forget battery life man. Razer blade, a similar product with similar specs has around 9 hours of websurfing while this laptop has 3 and a half... Optimus is great for that but make it so that you can swap to g-sync for gaming while charging. That hdd slot could be very well used for a bigger battery too, common in expensive high performance compact notebooks m.2 ssds are what makes sense, not havier, slower, noisier, more fragile hdds

    Hi Kevin,
    Are you meaning it is less than 10% from the full 1070, or only 10% better than the full 1060?
    Thanks

    Sorry, Kevin, but the way you've worded this is really confusing. Are you trying to say that the 1070 Max-Q is 10% worse than the normal 1070, or 10% better than the 1060?

    To add to my last comment, it's hard not to prefer the Zephyrus to the new GS63VR. Yes it's a bit more expensive but the difference is marginal if you're already dropping 2k or more on a laptop. The zephyrus having a 1080 and G-Sync makes it the winner to me and makes the price difference well worth it (again, just in my opinion). Waiting for some full reviews to roll in so we can see how the build quality is.
