    What's the VRM rated for in it?

    If you only need 1x GTX 1080, then why not order the P775TM? The P870TM-GS will be much more expensive with the same config (€ 300-400), if I'm not mistaken

    It does give some power and thermal headroom.

    I had a hard look at the P775TM also, it was almost good but since I had a good run with the P870DM so far decided to stay on this chassis

    So, what made me chose the P870TM in the end :
    - better speakers
    - headphones jack on the left side of the laptop so I do not bump into my headphones jack with my mouse
    - USB port on the back - this is where my mouse connector lives - I don't like having my mouse plugged on the right side to bump into the plug while gaming
    - 3 usb ports on the left
    - better cooling (especially on the 1080 due to 2 fans cooling design) leading to lower noise and better OC
    - I get a very good quality 4k IPS G-Sync display free upgrade - the alternative was an TN panel that would have been great for gaming but I need this laptop for work also and I need a good display with good viewing angles and colours
    - more storage space and from previous experience better drive cooling on the P870 due to placement and design (especially on m.2) - also on my P870DM I did not experienced any heat transferring to the palmrest from the drives that are on the other side and it's a plus for me

    It's a fair upgrade for those who don't mind a slightly larger and more expensive machine.

    In my opinion there is no better alternative to the P870 out there and I haven't seen other brands working on one in the last 2 years...
    I would have liked a little more competition in this area like I would have liked to be able to upgrade my videocard in the P870DM-G that I own....

    That would have needed a significant market as the card would have been a different design to the new ones.

    Those are mostly true , tho the display should be available on both

    Check the build in my Signature, especially the case, it is 2 times as thick as a P870, but other than that, the same size, and it has more power :)

    Well more power in some situations and less in others depending on the game while using twice the volume and being heavier with no battery, keyboard or screen @Georgel

    How much more power? Can you run same bench and post your results? Compare with https://www.3dmark.com/fs/15048133

    Or did you mean pure Cpu power?
