    I think this is the problem. Moreover, HWinfo is the only program that ever worked in Alienware laptops.

    I want the RX 580 in my ranger if the price is only 300 or so...

    That's not going to happen really.

    If they could get the power/heat down in a future generation your dream might come true, but I don't see it happening yet. I'll stay optimistic though.

    Personally I dont mind the power or heat. I believe my laptop can handle it, but I understand the position since that may not be the case with interested market share.

    The 780m will hold me for a while, considering my last DD had the m5100 in it. Even though I had a weaker card, I enjoyed the AMD software suite. Its much quicker when I need to access it and applies the settings without having the restart the game. The only thing that I can appreciate in the nvidia software suite is the ability to set custom resolutions. It may be because I had a workstation card but I couldnt do that before. This is easily resolved with CRU though so its not exactly a critical attribute.

    It seems AMD is completely uninterested in the enthusiast mobile market though. They have enough supply problems with just the desktop 580's as it stands...

    I think it's more they're dipping a toe in right now, and starting with desktop before moving back into competing in mobile markets is probably a smart move.

    To be fair, I'd probably do the same.

    As a consumer though, it still sucks lol

    Mostly if you're due for an upgrade. If no, waiting for a release down the road is the best option.

    Im not in a position to upgrade at the moment anyways.

    There is the 1070 of course but if I can, I'd like to stick to the red side :) If the option never comes then 1070 it is!
