    the current results are that the clock speed goes exaclty like it says in the 1800 to 2100 range

    yet the 3dmark score goes lower but not too much

    no sort of heat problem at all.

    the 90w bios on the other hand makes the clock speed stick at 1000 and go down

    there is no clevo branded 90w bios its a razer or an asus

    a new power supply could make a difference or itcould be locked out in bios i dont know.

    this is a tongfang vbios try to ask someone for a clevo branded one

    use gpuz, switch it from igpu to nvida
    click the arrow. upload t to tech and show us the link or zip it and share it in a message


    ask around for a clevo 115 w maxp vbios

    2080max q has the same TDP as 2070max q so you get a standard 180W power brick.

    someone here already did the 2080 90w razer maxq but flashed back cause it stuck at one speed.

    it could be a branded thing in some clevo software that it wont cooperate with a vbios that says razer. no idea at all youll have to search he did that.

    theres users here who did this with the 2070 i think his name is trill till or something not remembering

    so the power supply you need is either the clevo one or a alienware one. i was asking though, is it 230 or 240?

    the one for the maxp is it 230 or 240? theres two different watts im just wondering.

    the alienware is 240 and the clevo is 230 i believe i have not checked. its somewhere in this flashing a 1070 maxq to 1070 maxp in a clevo and it works and needs a power supply.

    thats all i know going from memory.

    even though the 90w works without it, it doesnt work. thats the info i have so far.

    I think Jarrod has done all three RTX cards available to the P9x0Ex range now.

    I got a P970EF (2070mq) from GenTech to replace my 5+ year old 15.6" P650SG (980m). My impressions pretty much match Jarrod's. Other than extremely sucky speakers and noticeable (but not terrible) backlight bleed, I really like the laptop. Fans are about the same volume at both low and high settings as my P650SG. Power brick is nearly half the size, chassis is thinner, and only a little bit wider and longer, and the same weight. The most noticeable difference is the screen size, which is very nice.

    I was going to take some pictures, but I had to send it back due to a couple bad pixels (glad they had the free 30-day pixel warranty promo). Maybe when I get it back.
