    Surely the 8700K would be supported then as your DM3 has the same Z170 chipset? Did you do a bios flash (as you linked) or just throw it in there? I'm quite curious to see what would happen if I just threw in an 8700K with my current BIOS but did the pin mod.

    Getting the 8700k with your current BIOS won't make the laptop POST basically. Im running a 8700k in my P775DM3-G without any issues with stock heatsink
    I'm running that modded BIOS (the one from the link above flashed with a SPI Programmer) to accept the 8700k though. And intend on purchasing the 2080 rtx with the P775tm1 heatsink in the future instead of a new machine. Yes it's the same chipset. The z170

    That cost is hard to justify for the 2080 over the 1080, I'd wait and see what happens.

    That's what I'm doing right now. So far I've seen the kit from eurocom (heatsink + 2080) for roughly 1200€ on eBay but.. It's almost a new laptop and not worth it for the upgrade. So yes I'm waiting to see what 2020 brings

    It's the same for me really. Intel might have to price drop the desktop chips when AMD launches so might pick one up if they go cheaper.

    As far as I read online (no idea if it is true) but it seems that nVidia is having now sells on 2060,2070 and 2080 (and Ti). So they are re-releasing the new nvidias with lower price ranges.

    I know it'd preliminary to speak about it but it seems AMD is raising their game already! We'll see but hopefully we'll be able to get the new super nvidias in our Clevos (The "super" term makes me laugh )

    I was more meaning 7nm, all the current chips from amd and nvidia are boring from a mobile perspective.

    5GHz stable (cache @4.2) on something finally with no throttles of any kind.
    -75mV undervolt approx 1.31V VID under load

    Should be able to get a few more points by OCing the memory which is still stock 2666mhz cl18. It did 2800mhz cl16 @ 1.3V in the P870DM/6700K iirc.

    And a few more from closing all that monitoring junk while it runs.
