    notebookcheck reviewed the 2070 Max-Q unit and it looked like it had much quieter fans than the previous generation. I did notice that the 2070 and 2080 blades were the same weight and the 2060 was slightly lighter. It makes me think that the 2060 has slightly less heatsink, or maybe it's just less power delivery phases. Possibly both.

    I had read rumors as well that the 2060 might have less heatpipes or something along those lines. Not sure.

    For the extra $100 I'd probably rather have the 2070 if the heat management might be better.

    I believe you. So the fan noise is a bit too much huh?

    I wonder how I will feel about it.. I come from a noisy machine already, I hope it is at least quieter than my current GT73 haha.

    is there a small comparison with the razer blade 15 advanced? I think they don't have the same 2080 MaxQ version from what I read.

    Yes they use 90 watt maxq2080 This’s benchmark using stock gaming mode with undervolting, if he wanted he can go further with Afterburner and low the undervolting value for better scores, but I stop him:D

    I’m doing a write up right now of a 80w vs a 90w 2080 Max-Q. It’ll be ready tomorrow.
