    Would love YouTube walk thru on this or even just longer post guide. Looks awesome.
    Do you use stock lid or new copper ?

    Just got Far Cry New Dawn on sale and played it for an hour. Man, this game is beautiful on ultra settings with HD textures enabled! Playing with an OC CPU/GPU and 1440p and temps were amazing, CPU 72 and GPU 69. Love this laptop!

    Only thing I hate about the game is how cpu limited it is, won’t use many threads and kills GPU usage and frames. But this engine has always been like this

    The benchmark still had me running around 120 FPS average, I imagine that would be locked at 144 if I was playing at 1080p.

    Benchmark is not indicative of actual performance. Start the game and get to towns and crowded forested areas, watch the GPU usage tank to to like 60 percent and frames cut in half lol. Especially at 1080p. It bottlenecks single threads and kills the GPU usage . Otherwise great game

    Hey guys, I finally received my replacement RTX 2080 from Dell! Before I put it in and try to see if it works *fingers crossed*, I was hoping maybe someone could answer a couple of questions I have:

    1. On the plastic packaging, there is a sticker stating:
    [​IMG]"Attention! Run G-Sync Setup.
    1. Connect AC Power
    2. Press Macro9 + Power Button
    *No video if G-Sync Setup not completed"

    I have no idea what the Macro9 key is, nor where it is located. I'm also guessing it means press and hold when the system is off?

    2. I remember a while ago there were people wondering which version of GPU Dell was now sending out. If someone shows me where the version ID, etc, is on the card, I will gladly tell which it is.

    Thanks!
