    What decrease in temperature?
    In the P775TM the RTX 2080 should be 80C, but according to that polish test the RTX 2070 was 80C so the 2080 might be 85-88C as the GTX 1080 was ...

    I’ve had an 860m for like 5 years, laptop gets hot but it’s fine. My previous laptop was a 230m that you could fry an egg on, but it also lasted like 5 years. I’d definitely rather have a 1070 for 200-300 less than a 2060.

    Of the several review videos I've watched, none of the MAX-Q or RTX2080's ive seen have gone above 80c at all. That being said, I've only focused on the brands I'm interested in.

    I'm new to the scene so I don't have intrepid knowledge of the past generation machines, only know that previous gen of the models I've been looking at (MSI, Asus) all ran a bit more hot. This gen has improved temps.

    The PCworld review of the GS75 is far more developed. Don't compare firestrike total scores, that is only part of the picture. It seems the RTX 2080 Max Q on the GS75 is close to the stock GTX1080 non max Q, so I assume it is the "90W" version.

    RTX GPUs are easier to cool, and if you check disassembly videos, you can see how massive the core is compared to the CPU, so I assume cooling is "easier" and thus even thin machines can cool off these neutered versions of massive GPUs.

    the RTX2080 falls in line with what I expected, but I am worried about the 2060 and 2070... the 2070 didn't make sense in the desktop world, and I think it will be less relevant in laptops. Hell, I believe the normal 2060 will outclass the 2070 max q, so I am not sure why it exists yet.

    The auto fan curve is designed to keep it around 80C.

    How big of a performance jump can we expect going from a full laptop 1070 to a full laptop 2070? Is it significant enough to warrant an upgrade?

    Around 22% improvement only.

    But if you're looking at reducing the weight and thickness of the laptop and not to burn your wallet too much while still having around the same performance as the 1070, then maybe can get a 2060 laptop.
