    Might be the cheapest laptop with an RTX 2070 Super at the moment. Not sure if this can be ordered for shipping or if you need to buy it in-store. It uses a Clevo chassis of some kind.

    It's $1,599 now. Crazy.

    I just picked mine up. I was going to return my 7i (10750H/rtx208S MQ) to Costco and get the GE66 (10750H/RTX2080S) from bestbuy, but this is a very hard price to beat. Added bonus is there is still room for a 2.5" HDD making it 3 total.

    I'm just surprised it came with a 230W adapter for the RTX2070S MP while the bestbuy GE66 comes with a 280W adapter for theirs.

    The 10750H being 45W, and the 2070 Super being 115W this system is actually similarly spec'd to last year's Power Spec 1720 with 8750H (45W) and RTX 2070 Max-P (115W) which also uses (with some overhead) a 230W power adapter. You'll get more performance with the 1530 though, at least on paper!

    Just got one of these a couple of days ago. Pretty happy with the purchase. Good keyboard, good screen, overall good Clevo build. Got 19219 in Fire Strike without any tuning: https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/51832878?

    Only immediate disappointment is that I don't think you can undervolt.

    Edit: Oh, and the reported model number from Intel XTU is the "Clevo PB50DF2".

    FYI, you can undervolt with ThrottleStop. I've confirmed it with both HWiNFO and an actual lockup of the OS @ -150mV on the core & cache.

    That is a steal! I actually picked up the maingear 17.3" from microcenter for $1799. I though that was a good deal

    $1,549 as of today. That is insane for the specs. Were it not for the thickness, I'd have seriously considered getting one.

    I don't really know where else to post this since I'm only sure it works on this particular laptop...
    I discovered how to completely unlock my PowerSpec 1530's BIOS very easily. :D

    Use lnsydeH20UVE v2OO.00.01.00 GUI. (Google)
    File -> Load runtime (This loads your "running" UEFI/BIOS)
    Once your UEFI/BIOS has loaded, click on the yellow/orange "Setup" icon. Then head to "Advanced" then "Advanced Chipset Control" then you'll see "Setup Menu lnsyde FuII Show". Change it from "Hide" to "Show".

    Click on "Exit" on the far left and "Save Change Without Exit".

    Done. Completely unlocked BIOS. Reboot and enjoy.
    You can revert this change by "Loading Optimal Defaults" in the "Exit" menu.

    This worked for me multiple times with zero problems. YMMV. Be careful.

    Very cool! What options are you now able to see? Would love some more options on my PB70EF-G model but I'm not certain this will work on that model.
