    Glad you saw this right before you pulled the trigger on the MSI GT75 which I also was going to do (the new version with the RTX GPU that is but I didn't feel it's much of an upgrade from what I have as the CPU is the same and it's the same old laptop I've had for 2 years. I had a GT73 and now GT75 before that)

    Nah I wasn’t even considering the GT75 anymore due to the fat bezels and dated design. I was debating on the GE75 but then seen news on the 51m and did a total 360 towards it lol.

    Does the stock machine come with dual 240w or dual 330 on the i9/2080 config?

    180w+330w by default.

    It would be nice to know if it can run on one or the other, say for non-gaming use on the road or in class, and if the 330w can be used for gaming up to a performance limit - automatically? Also when OC'ing does 2x 330w help - will the firmware allow pulling more than 180w+330w under load?

    Congratulations on the new laptop :)

    Knowing dell it most probably a firmware lock so 2x 330w doesn't help.

    Yeah. We have to rely on Mr. Fox,johnkss and Prema's expertise on unlocking vbios of Turing RTX.

    Frank said in a reddit AMA that you could use 2x 330w but the laptop would only draw what its setup for.
