    noVideo digging themselves to China forgetting there is a huge #### mantlet in their way, meanwhile AMD preparing Navi, cheap GPU's with 1080 Ti performance to the masses, LOL
    If only AMD would release high end GPU like Vega on MXM but it still remain to be seen if RTX on MXM is even real.

    It is, but no "Ti" version in the works, and the RTX 2080 (N) probably won't be identical specs and performance to the desktop RTX 2080 GPU.

    If the 2080 in full makes it to MXM / mobile, that's the same performance as the last generation 1080ti, so.... that's something - if it happens. Otherwise the mobile RTX GPU's will be less / same performance as last generation + the cost burden of RTX stank.

    If the information I have been given is accurate, at least for Clevo, the RTX 2080 will only cost around $100-150 more than the Clevo GTX 1080, so that's not as much of a price increase as the desktop shaft-o-rama. But, those were already as expensive as a reference version of a desktop RTX 2080 Ti. So, I don't want to make it sound like a great deal... it's not. They were already WAY too expensive. Mobile always has been an extremely poor value when it comes to GPU pricing and I think all the arguments that it costs more to produce the laptop parts is pure baloney. Anyone that purchased a new laptop with 1080 MXM card has no basis for complaining about RTX 2080/2080 Ti prices, as that would be utterly hypocritical. They already paid that much.

    Well, MXM GTX GPU's already have the "shaft" built in in the form of the Nvidia tax of charging 2x-3x the MSRP of the same desktop GPU.

    So that extra $200 on top of the MXM "shaft" for an RTX sku is to remind us who's boss. :D

    And, I assume the 2080 MXM "upgrade" price for already purchased laptops will be much higher than the generational differential cost for a new build to order choice. Probably impossible to find, raising the single quantity spot price even higher.

    It's fun to imagine a real 1080ti in a laptop even so. :cool:

    So we receive cut down versions, the die sizes are already pretty ridicules MUCH larger than the Vega 56 not taking the HBM memory into consideration, so maybe we receive custom mobile variant like the 9xx series? Pretty sad, and with a price increase even, just a big insult to gamers LOL although I saw you said price increase for 2080 is not much matter but you have to remember some companies sell "cheapo" gaming laptops with BGA 1080, and by cheap I mean cheaper than they otherwise would be for a branded one.

    There is no reason to cut down the MXM version of the RTX 2080 imo. The platform can easily handle the 215W TDP as long as adequate cooling and a solid VRM are provided. If they do it will not be worth buying imo, better off keeping a 1080 and waiting for the next gen cards.
