    I also bought a 8750h/2060rtx, don't you think you should wait a few more days to get the new 9750h ?

    It appears DELL has made a change for the Alienware M17 in their website. The laptop would now ship with a 240w power brick even with the RTX2060 configuration. :)

    So last time I'm changing laptops. I swear. I've returned my M15 for the M17. Reason is the 1440p screen was too good to pass up. And while I will tell people I'm getting old and can't really tell the difference between a 15" 1080p screen and a 17" 1440p screen for gaming it makes a nice difference for work such as Auto CAD. The extra pixels are nice to have.

    I'm away on a mini vacation so I don't have any benchmarks for you guys yet. But, early impressions are positive as I was convinced they sent me the wrong panel. I swore it was the IPS 60 panel. I had to wait till I was done setting up windows to determine I do have the 1440p TN panel. So it's very impressive for a TN screen.

    I'll be gaming on it for fun while I'm away so I'll have some notes for you all when I get back home in a couple days. ;)

    Oh I didn't realize that the newer processor was actually that close to coming out so soon but our current laptop is pretty much DOA so couldn't really put off ordering any longer sadly. Thanks for looking out though :) did yours come in yet? if so, hope it's treating you good!

    Looking forward to hear your impressions. I am also considering TN option since it should have better response times, overall better fluidity and connecting feel while gaming

    What benefit does this provide? Would this help eliminate power limit throttling when the system is under load?

    It would eliminate the power drain whilst the laptop is under heavy load, and if the various tech reviewers are to be believed, hopefully also alleviate power throttling.
