    Hello gbenedetto, your MSI GS63VR that MSI send to you have a GTX 1070 Max Q of course, as the new MSI GS73VR 7RG/RX, isn't this?

    Are you sure that MSI will refresh the GS plateform with the GTX 1080 Max Q? The Asus Zephyrus is very attractive, but the fact that it's a 15,6" laptop, no 2,5" emplacement for a HDD, 8GB of RAM soldering on the MB ... I'm not so interested finally :oops:.

    If MSI will refresh for sure the GS serie, and make a MSI GS73VR with a GTX 1080 Max Q, and with a 17,3" FHD IPS HDR 120Hz 3ms display with G-Sync (please MSI do it with G-sync :tears:), so I will wait for the next MSI GS73VR 7RG, bye the 15,6" Asus Zephyrus :p.

    Yeah, it's a big ******** not to allow G-Sync on the GS display, almost all the other competitor have G-Sync display option for the same kind of laptop (high end gaming laptop)

    Lucky you :eek:.

    I hope I won't wait so long for the next MSI GS73VR 7RG with GTX 1080 Max Q, and hope too that MSI make the FHD IPS G-Sync 120Hz 3ms HDR display. If it's the next year, waiting will be very long for me :vbfrown:, if it's by the end of the year, it's better for me :vbbiggrin:.

    I saw that a few days ago too, why Asus would have the exclusivity for the GTX 1080 Max Q?

    It'll be interesting the GPU temps at full load and power consumption with CPU & GPU full load. 180W AC adapter should be enough with a 7700HQ / 1070 max-Q.

    Probably will wait for Coffee Lake. With a bit of luck, more single-core performance and 6 cores in a GS.

    I talked to Ken from Gentech PC extensively about the MSI gs63vr with the GTX1070 Max-Q. He helped me in my decision to purchase this laptop, and was very helpful in making this important decision. I look forward to seeing how it will perform with my studies and gaming. :D

    A long wait for nothing, huh?

    Both the Raider and Titan are hundreds less ($2500 vs $2300 vs $2100) and have better specs. Is slimness really that much of a premium?

    Xotic is showing the previous model way down at $1800 now, are they really charging $700 just for the 1070 upgrade?

    The Raider isn't that well priced for what it offers. GT72S was much better for the money and had thunderbolt.

    Well I saw the difference between the GL702VS with a GTX 1070 that scored 12733 on Firestrike, and the MSI GS63VR GTX 1070 Max-Q scored a 12003 on the same benchmark. So while yes, there is a difference of 730, that isn't all too far off from the original GPU that is in a thicker and louder chassis. To be honest, what I am hoping to get out of the Max-Q is a quieter design that consumes less power but achieves similar performance. That way I can game without bugging other people in public.

    I know that some people might come here posting GTX 1070 scores that will be around 13000 and up, but with the free liquid metal offered on the CPU and GPU I got from GenTech PC, I am hoping that I can get a bit more performance out of the Max-Q design as well. In all honesty, 12003 isn't that bad of a score, and certainly above what an overclocked GTX 1060 could do in such a small laptop.
