    Bumps the benches up a little and the combined score, but yeah first thing I checked was faster ram support and nothing; still at an ancient 2400mhz while slim cheap laptops at Walmart have 2666 lol

    Pure speculation, but I did see there was talk of increased wattage headroom on the 2080, so maybe its that?

    "Enhancements" is all the patch notes say, so I guess we will have to wait and see.

    My delivery date got pushed back from tomorrow (3/29) to 4/8-4/11. I asked what part was causing the delay and they confirmed it was the motherboard.

    For all the problems and bad experiences, I have to say that I'm crazy happy with my 51M. It's rock solid and I really enjoy it. :)

    HID confirmed that mine had a blown MOSFET on the video card. I’m asking some followup questions and will report back.
