    They are keeping their cards close to the chest. We did get most info from that LTT video anyway. Now it's all about waiting for numbers and testing.

    Just checked, they charge an extra +275 euros for the UHD panel, add the price of the FHD panel it replaces, say 30 euros, total over 300 euros. The most venerable AUO 4K IPS panel can be had for as little as $60 and that's to the end consumer, therefore either this panel is something different, or they are taking the p*ss.

    That is a normal surcharge and does not indicate a special panel, Eurocom for example charges 312$ to add a 4k panel to the 870 chassis which is a higher surcharge than for the XMG, for Evoc/HiDevolution it is 275$ for the 775 chassis.

    You have to swap and test the panel, so there is time and then it's covered by warranty and then there needs to be a profit for the company.

    No different to any other industry.

    Great I am looking forward to it.

    In the meantime I just bought a semi-budget, gaming desktop for my son who's been working from home due to the virus. I went onto userbenchmarks to refresh my memory about the current state of graphics cards, and long story short it seems the RTX 2080 Desktop is only 33% faster than the GTX 1080 mobile which I have on my laptop. It seems to me a whole load of money and effort for +33% ? Seeing as how many games struggle with 4K, is the RTX 2080 the answer or should we wait for Autumn to see the new Nvidia / AMD cards?

    For reference, the setup I settled to is Ryzen 5 3600 CPU and Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics with the "ASUS TUF Gaming VG289Q 28 inch LED IPS Gaming Monitor" :)

    If you talk about Nvidia 3xxx Mobile it won't come this year. Maybe summer 2021.

    The Origin PC EON17-X crams Intel's 10-core desktop CPU into a laptop Pcworld.com | Today
    The Origin PC EON17-X laptop comes loaded with Intel's newest desktop processors and Nvidia's best graphics gear.

    The beauty with Intel... Less cores, less multithreaded performance, no PCIe 4.0 support but still 20% more expensive. At least they win in something that matter. For themself:D

    Intel's new CPUs are here but AMD's 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X is cheaper than ever Pcworld.com | Today
    The Ryzen 9 3900X is $410, its cheapest price yet at Amazon.
