    Yeah, is this possible? I've got a RTX 2070 Mobile 115w version and I'd love to find a custom bios for it to be able to play with overclock further.
    My GPU temps have never passed 65 degrees since I repasted it with Kryonaut/Gelid Extreme.

    Power delivery and vrm temperatures are the thing to consider.

    Power brick is rated at 230W, GPU is rated at 115W and CPU draws 60W~ under stress test under load (even if rated at 45W lol). My laptop display is always turned off, so that gives me a couple of extra watts. Fans are maxed under load, so that's around 10W, other stuff on laptop taken into account around 15W - I should have at least a 30 watt headroom.

    And as far as VRM temps go, I don't have exact numbers, but my GPU and CPU temperatures wouldn't be chilly AF if my VRM temps were even close to high (seeing as all those things share a single cooler).

    Oh they could be, you can get large deltas between die temperature of the vrms and heatsink temperature.

    I think you just saved me from having to send my laptop back to Pro-Star by quoting my post and then responding to a_bolog above. On top of my PB51EF-G randomly going into limp mode and being locked at base 8750h frequency, my CPU was never clocking up to the full turbo boost speed and was throwing a lot of kernel-processor-power errors accompanied by information events being logged about the CPU's available C states. Before loading optimal defaults, the C state info logs only said 1 state available and now say 3 states available and the errors that are usually right in line with these information events are gone completely AND the CPU is clocking up to over 4ghz at times instead of never more than 3.9ghz. Have to put the laptop through its paces again but things are already looking better. I will try to remember to circle back around if things turn out to actually be fixed.

    Having a 4k 120hz is nice for media content and you can always drop back to 1080p 120hz for games :)

    Hopefully they do become a decent option.

    Things like that could be a bit leggy at the moment given what is happening in china.

    There's an option in the BIOS to switch to discrete mode, or if you have the Control Center apps installed you can switch to discrete mode in that, then the G-Sync option with be available.
