    Yeah I was curious about that too but 460W sounds like it should be plenty for a fixed TDP chip and two 1080s. I mean I've got a 4940MX and even SLI 880M @ 1.2v just barely overloaded my 330W power brick (it was good until I benched it with 3DMark11) and those 880Ms along with even a stock 4940MX can really pull the wattage... I didn't have a kill-a-watt with the 880Ms but my system at stock pulls 340W under 3DMark11 combined test, occasionally 350W. The 4940MX isn't shy about power consumption.

    It's too early to tell what is enough with OC'ing, I don't mind the extra weight of the 330w vs 230w PSU.

    And, "maybe" a lightly loaded backpack tote of a single 330w will be enough for light use on the road - maybe need to test / detune to keep power under a single 330w without a surprise BSOD.

    That's the only drawback I can see, I do take it portable, and trundling around a gaffers delight of cables and PSU's to power it all is a bit of a drag.

    The Customize section shows 330w for "2nd" Power Adapter, so that suggests this GT83S does come with 330w and supports 2x330w... it's worth asking XoticPC before ordering, and optioning up to 2x330w if it doesn't already come that way.

    Hey, nice catch, was too busy posting to deep dive into the specs / customization, but there it is:

    "Graphics Controller:
    Dual NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 (16.0GB total) GDDR5X in SLI (Pascal) w/ Optimus Technology
    NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ Technology
    PCI-Express™ 16X
    Microsoft® DirectX® 11"

    Optimus Technology???? Aye yi yi!!!

    Gonna have to do some more reading of those specs and marketing floss, Optimus and G-sync aren't compatible - one negates the other. Optimus also disables VR capabilities. When GPU output routes through the Intel iGPU Nvidia looses control of those features.

    Many q's about the solidness of this GT83VR listing... @pat@XOTICPC - response?

    Update: The overview marketing info doesn't mention Optimus, maybe someone copy / pasted too much generic info over to the specs - mention of Optimus should be removed - and addition of DX12 to the DX11 spec should be added.

    Hey, manufacturers and resellers: while it's fantastic you get keep letting the cat out of the bag early for notebooks with Pascal GPUs, can you please start letting slip details on notebooks that aren't ridiculously high end? Preferably something with a 1060 inside. Thanks! ;):p

    And in other news... MSI somehow can't manage to make a new $5000 notebook support HDMI 2.0? :rolleyes:

    And the heat plate+pipes
    Ps1: under load, P870DM draw 438 watts.
    Ps2: P775DM has the same kind of card

    I did look for the GT73 there too, but no page came up for it.

    Still 1080p panel for 18.4 inch with gtx 1080s in sli?? thaats wayyyy little now. Will gt83 take full use of dual psu 2x330watt? Also I Just read an article about asus gx800 with ips 18.4 inch screen with 4k panel with gtx 1080 gddr5x Sli.

    http://www.trustedreviews.com/asus-rog-gx800-review

    Scroll down below the page. Earlier it says gtx 980 sli but Asus now upgraded to gtx 1080 gddr5x sli and 18.4 inch 4 k Ips/Pls Panel.
