    I think the bare minimum for full power RTX 2080 Super is 150W. so it's going to be at least 150W, hopefully more

    Would be very interesting to get more information about the used VBIOS. 150W would be impressive at least. My concerns are that it will throttle hard if they stay with maximum 74°C cap on GPU (like the Area 51m).

    You can very easily change the 74c cap back to 87c with Asus gpu tweak 2

    Sure, but I wonder how they want to get all the heat out of the tiny chassi. The highest max-q version for the 2080 I have seen in a thin/light notebook was 100W e.g. Razer Blade Pro 17 VBIOS. If they really want to put a max-p version into the m17R3 I guess you can fry your eggs on it :-D

    The blade Pro 17 has surprisingly garbage cooling for its weight so there's that.

    The GE75 runs just fine with a max-p 2080 and it's half a kilo lighter than the blade Pro.

    As long as the colling is well designed (and has good qc) there shouldn't be any problem.

    Hello.
    For long time i didnt use Alineware m17R2 i7 and 2080 max-q. I ma playing only 2 hame Apex and WoT. So, my problem is GPU and CPU (in 3 ghz 100C on2 core) was to hot, so I decided to repast, its help but now GPU get 71 in apex before was 64. I add some pads for vram and maybe now GPU and radiator have bad connection. Who play Apex and can say his temp?

    These devices run hot. If you can play without having any lag, you should be fine. Based on Dell's site you are okay until you see 80 degrees.

    Today I got the confirmation from Umar Khan that the RTX 2080 Super will be 150W in the m17R3.

    If I decrease CPU to 3.2 Ghz its get about 80c and GPU 72 and after that keyboard "wsad" getting to warm and not comfortable to play, lower CPU speed = lag. Next general is coming and if they put 150w GPU its wil be FAIL :)
