    Which makes perfect sense!

    Right now sitting here wondering how this A51M is going to pan out.

    Yes.

    So with how many watts that card can pull, you would think they would give us a bit more. Since it has been proven time and time again what it can handle. What do they do? Come out with some nonsense 150W ceiling when the card can do 300W+ legitimately with how it is currently configured. BGA would of course be different, but non the less just as powerful this round.

    Cmon Nvidia we waited 3 years for this!???
    The more I look into it the more I think I might skip this gen or just get a cheap RTX 2060 laptop.
    I’m still holding out for 51M reviews but they better live up to the hype.
    I hope we don’t see another 3 years between new GPU’s.
    I really like the M51 but Nvidia really dropped the ball pushing RTX when it should have just focused on upping performance.
    RTX is not ready for primetime.Who asked for this anyway?

    Nvidia just follow the notebook trend. I'm sure they don't see the point push out mobile graphics with higher or equal TGP as they did with first gen laptop desktop cards (Maxwell N). The cooling in many of todays/tomorrows (coming) Gaming laptop models won't handle it.

    They know very well that almost all Notebook manufacturers today have banned/abandoned thicker gaming laptops for tinner Apple design.

    The few thicker laptop models we still have doesn’t get the Nvidia desktop power due the love for thin and flimsy Joke-books.

    Yeah, its sad.
    The Future of Gaming is Thin on Pounds, Heavy on Pixels. By MSI's ceo: Charles Chiang

    "When it comes to his company's bread and butter products, gaming PCs, Chiang believes the future is thin, mobile and high resolution. He said he expects to see slimmer and lighter gaming laptops become a much bigger portion of the market in the years ahead, particularly as new processes like Intel's 10nm and AMD's 7nm bring greater power efficiency."

    We have plenty of folks who know what they are doing, but we can't seem to get compensated from Nvidia in the form of a performance boost. Just performance nonsense.
