    > 2x32GB DDR4 2933MHz

    I wonder how high you can overclock the memory. As well if you can tweak the timings for your likings. As a reminder... DDR4-2933 is the official specs for 10th gen Intel Core i7/i9. Not an overclock.

    And will the refresh finally get an subwoofer?

    Well... maybe because the Time Spy CPU (Physics) score is 1,000 points lower than 9900K @ 5.0GHz in an older laptop, even though the newer CPU has more cores/threads.

    Fire Strike has slightly less (about 800 points) gap on Physics, but it is still beaten by 9900K...

    In comparison, I'd say awful is an appropriate choice of words. The numbers should be flipped in the opposite direction.

    Maybe the person running the benchmarks doesn't know what they are doing. That is certainly a possibility. Or, it is overheating and thermal throttling like a big dog.

    5 years old notebook with 25% less cores. What a progress.

    AMD chips won't come with 2080 Super cards for notebooks in very long time.

    Intel will continue to dominate the premium gaming laptop ...
