    The reason why we don't see any reputable reviews for this system other than that laptopmag paid advertisement is because Azor is so cunning that he doesn't anyone cancelling their pre orders. If this with a desktop processor can't beat a GT75 with a 1080, which I think will happen by the way, I'm not interested in AWs anymore. They've sold out. As simple as that!

    I remember LTT's Threadripper review on A51 and said it was absolute garbage.
    Did you cancel your order as well?

    I ordered on the 30th of Jan. I am actually surprised it shipped this quickly! Usually when I order a dell/Alienware new release they keep me hanging for weeks

    What was your configuration? I ordered my i9 9900k + 2080 on January 10th, living in the USA

    I order on Jan 10th, had a ship date of Feb 18th... They automatically cancelled the order for unknown reasons (they said power supply issue(guess this happened to several others)) anyway I created another order and now I have Feb 28th showing...

    Brutal. Hopefully these other users getting theirs early can post some benchmarks and stats here so we can cancel before shipping if they're trash. Much easier than a return.

    The vRAM is responsible for a huge portion of the difference between Pascal & Turing, hence Turing is doing better in TS which is a 3K/4K bench)

    This is a DX12 1920x1080 benchmark (I picked the currently best 2080 result) :

    I thought 3dmark invalidates older drivers. I hate nvidia drivers every new WHQL turns up worse than older ones.
