    Running into some issues with Synapse 3.0, but think I found a work around. The screenshot shows my UV -0.125v with clock maxes set to 3.8 Ghz. For some reason when using the default clocks (4.0 and above on some cores), Synapse causes it to power throttle hard and it messes with my frames in certain games. Without any modifications; undervolts, turbo limits, etc., running Synapse still causes my frames to drop in games like Dragon Quest XI.

    Edit: Uninstalling and running without Synapse let's me run at full clocks without framerate issues. According to Razer, running without Synapse is equivalent to running Synapse in Balanced Mode with Auto Fans without Synapse overhead.

    I want to preface the fact I'm not an expert tweaker

    But have learned a lot since owning a laptop in 2019. My desktop is really good, but it's stock everything lol. So I don't modify much. This experience does make me wanna try and do some stuff to my desktop however.

    Anyway I can do my best to answer any questions, run test and of course I welcome any assistance to squeeze the most out of the system.

    A bit of history, I returned my 9th Gen 240Hz Razer Blade 15 to HIDEvolution because it was getting really hot. 30 mins of gaming all cores would hit 100 degrees C and thermal throttle even with UV at -160 and max clocks set to 3.5 GHz. This new Razer is the result of returning the Razer to HIDEvo.

    Blade pro 2019 with RTX2060 has been on the UK Razer website to order for around a week now. The 2080MQ model became available this morning. Placed my order, waiting for dispatch.

    So expensive. 5500 for the 2080mq in Australia. 4800 for the 2070mq and 4300 for the 2060.

    Puts it in a real strange spot. The usual advice is to buy the 2060 as it's the best value - but when you're spending over 4k on a laptop, it's tempting to just go all out. Either way it's going to smash your wallet.

    I just got mine yesterday, need to check on this....

    I bought it directly from Razer here in Singapore.

    Its not cheap but if I you want to go for the larger 17” model I would always go for the max gpu to also justify the larger size kind off and take advantage of the improved cooling (the two small air intake fans at the bottom...)

    Here's my latest TimeSpy run on Balanced Profile with UV and 3.8 GHz limit set. I ran TimeSpy with Demo, and let it sit idle for a few minutes after the benchmark ran. I am currently working lol, so forgot about it lol.

    Yeah the reason why I opted for the 2060 was because after getting the Razer 15 with the 2080, I felt like it was a waste of money since I have a gaming desktop with an i9 and 1080Ti to do most of my heavy lifting, it's just the gaming laptop was for work and stuff on the go. And I figured, why not save the money since the benefit wasn't really apparent at the time with the 2080.

    So I opted for the 17 for screen real estate, and stuff. I do get buyers remorse from time to time and wish I just went all out, but it's a $700 difference and figured with my 10% restock fee that IMO isn't warranted from HIDEvolution, it kind of helps mitigate that a little.

    And here's the results of running default clocks and default voltage of -100v set by Razer. Synapse running on Balanced mode. The Score was about 600 points lower in TimeSpy. Keep in mind if I don't install Synapse at all, the results are better than Synapse installed on balanced mode. These results also include the demo for TimeSpy. Little animated video at the beginning.

    I feel for ya bro. Been eyeing off upcoming notebooks such as this and the pricing is absolutely hectic. To justify $5500AU or not is not easy. Nor is having patience towards other branded laptops like Gigabyte to see what their prices will be like.

    As far as things go the Asus GX502 w/ Max-P 2070 is looking the most attractive price wise so far. But it's only a 15.6".
