    @yggdra.omega did you finish with all benchmarks? You can still increase your 3Dmark especially on firestrike or maybe other benchmarks if you want.

    I was losing steam for sure, hahaha. What are some steps to increase? I didn't know anyone else was still interested, but I'm down for more testing

    Interestingly enough, here's my desktop with a STRIX 2080 Ti and 9900K, stock with identical settings as the RB15:

    Yes we’re doing gaming not firestrike. On my egpu setting my firestrike is also waay under anyone here who put firestrike scores on their signature, but on real gaming usage in some titles I get similar or even better FPS than desktop or notebook dgpu FPS that listed on notebookcheck. My reaction was like you “interesting“
    You can bump your performance by doing OC scanner on afterburner and look +value on core you achieved, and from that increasing a bit until benchmarks like firestrike crashing. Is your cpu undervolting value only max-50mv, it could be also decreased lower imo, because my 8750H can easily stable on -120, I can use for firestrike even -160 but for daily I use -130, since lower than that may crash the game sometimes.

    I've been considering picking up one of these new RTX blades but I have one concern
    All my benchmarking in actual games on the 2018 razer blade with 1070 showed me the surprising result that the CPU would thermal throttle to such a degree (in most games locked at baseclock 2.2ghz) that I was largely CPU bottlenecked. And yes, that's even with 130mv undervolt. Assassin's creed origins and odyssey were a good example of this. Easy to get great burst performance in benchmarks but the sustained gaming performance was very compromised by CPU thermals.

    Are you able to test some real world games and use a hardware monitor to test your CPU and GPU temps? And to see what CPU frequency the laptop is able to hold in some triple A titles?

    I don't want to spring for an upgrade to turing if the CPU throttling is such that I continue to be CPU bottlenecked anyway

    What are your max temperatures and FPS when you're gaming ?

    AC:Odyssey is a GPU intensive game that struggles to reach 50fps on my normal 1070, so I doubt that it's your CPU that is limiting you in that game.
    For Origin it was better but I had dips in the 50ish fps with my 1070, again GPU limited.

    Sadly, many laptops out there are struggling to cool the 8750H, still don't understand why max-Q laptop just don't go with the 4C/8T i5 coffee lake chips. But repasting + undervolting greatly helps.
