    Overwatch is not a demanding game...

    The answer is "it will depend on the game". https://www.notebookcheck.net/Computer-Games-on-Laptop-Graphics-Cards.13849.0.html may help you a bit (there are 1080p ultra and 2160p high benchmarks so 1440p would be in-between)

    Playing Forza Horizon 3 the Aero 15 struggles at keeping stable 60 fps on a 1080p display and high graphics. There are regular framerate drops to 55 fps or even below sometimes.
    So with this game you can forget about 1440p or you'll have to turn down graphics settings.

    I think the GTX 1060 is very good for 1080p gaming now and in the future but it is definitely not future-proof for 1440p gaming.

    The eGPU you mentionned may be a solution for the future but afaik nobody tried one with the fixed BIOS so we don't even know how good or bad an external GTX 1070 or 1080 would work on the Aero 15...

    Truthfully I would happily pay for an Aero 15 with a GTX1070MQ if I were getting it now as I see it as reasonable value when considering the form factor.

    Nice to see Gigabyte offering that option to consumers. I just hope they market the laptop in all their promotional material as it being an MQ version of the 1070 and not the standard version.

    Would be curious to see overclocking headroom. I know in the 1060 Aero 15, you run into power limits long before you run into temperature limits. The cooling system in the Aero 15 is very robust.

    Is there any way to unlock voltage control on the GPU on the aero 15?

    Have tried with afterburner but no luck thus far.

    Nope...unless you use a programmer.
    However you can lock the voltage at 800mV using AB voltage curve.

    Yo what about the screen? Not necessarily waiting on max-q but 4K. Any information on that?

    In all honesty, I believe that the 15x isn't a worthy upgrade since all you are getting is an upgrade to the GTX 1070-MaxQ. Considering the price difference between a new Aero 15 vs 15x (~$1000 if I were to use the 2399 price from the review site above), you can get an Aorus Gaming Box for ~$600 while also having the built in gtx1060.

    The price difference might be less for the US, but I couldn't find said price anywhere.

    EDIT: From the quote below, my argument does not hold grounds unless you consider having both the gtx 1060 + 1070 vs just the 1070MQ
