    TL;DR there's a MX150 variant which is noticeably slower, yet comes without any distinguishing naming.

    I don't think anyone who has been keeping up with the laptop GPU scene is going to be surprised. NVidia dominates it to such an extent that they just abuse that power in ways like this. And if you want to buy a high end gaming laptop, NVidia is your only choice. That means they can around like this and people still have to go back to them.

    well, if it really works that way, then...

    next up: gtx 2080 standard mxm cards with unlimited TDP, non-fluctuating clocks (i.e. no premature temperature-throttling) and universal compatibility for sub-500 bucks :D

    Let me fix:
    Netx up; GTX 2080 standard MXM cards with 115 max TDP, non.fluctuating clocks, sub 500 bucks, performance like a desktop 1080 + 30%.

    If you say unlimited TDP, notebooks not gonna be able to cool dat shiet :D

    let me put it another way then: only regulation in place is of thermal nature, namely staying below 90C, anything else is unlimited, including TDP. that way it just depends on cooling and proper power delivery :D

    This is why I don't get fanboyism. They're both publicly listed corporations who will intentionally screw consumers when the costs are outweighed by the benefits because duty to shareholders holds company officers and directors in breach if they don't... the only difference is one is 10x the size of the other so does 10x more screwing
