    Hi guys I’m looking to purchase the HP omen with the RTX 2080 either with the 9750h or the 9880h.

    There’s a sale currently in Australia where I can get the 9750h version with 32gb ram for about $2800 AUD and the 9880h for about $3500 AUD. Just wondering is there a huge difference in the performance ?
    I will mostly be using this for training ML models and gaming.

    Is the $700 difference worth it ?
    How much performance difference between both CPUs

    Thank you all

    The 9880H demolished the 9750h in multi core performance although it may not be worth the $700 if your gaming, BUT, you said your going to be rendering, so you need the best cpu possible. Get the 9880h and rtx 2080 combo. You can’t go wrong.

    I just got mine, and the cooling is good for the GPU but inadequate for the CPU out of the box: 100 C and thermal throttle galore. The i9 seems to accept quite the undervolt, -0.150 on mine with no issues (other than Oculus and Oculus only crashes for some reason). There are others here who have gotten great results from the repaste, I'm still debating whether I want to do that in the warranty period.
    However, aside from the crappy factory paste, it's good that HP hasn't crippled this thing--it will happily run at 70W TDP, undervolted, in the low 90s, continuously. My Cinebench scores are double my old 4-core i7 so it does work properly, just not ideally.

    If it crashes in oculus then it is not stable.

    Repasting the CPU won't void your warranty. You might as well do the GPU while you're at it, assuming it's not too difficult to access.
