    The XPS 15 has known heat issues (VRMs reaching 120*C and such) and cannot hold base clock. Not sure why says it runs cool but they're obviously wrong.

    The temperatures on the Fire Strike benchmark seems to be way better than the temperatures I had on the GL702VM, that's a good thing!

    Maybe becouse it has a 120Hz screen... Somebody prefer a 120Hz screen over a 60Hz with G-Sync.... I'm not an expert on this aspect

    You can have a 120hz screen and gsync. My gl502vs has it. I would guess it's to try and save on battery life, but the gl503vs (scar edition) has a 144hz screen with gsync.

    having a 120hz screen doesn't mean gsync is unnecessary. It's more necessary, because many games won't hit 120fps on High, and the screen refresh needs to slow down.

    I think Asus just forgot to put it in. No Optimus, no Gsync, is like laptops from 2009.

    Obviously that's right, but this is if you don't care about price.... if you have to keep the price low, you have to choose, and that is what I was saying in my previous message... Maybe they chose to keep the price lower and focused on just one aspect...

    By the way, I just found out that the normal Strix version of this laptop (not the Hero or the Scar) has soft-touch finish... why the hell they're still using that sh*t? They ruined the laptop -.- ... So the only good finish is on the Scar version, wich haven't got the IPS panel I preferred, sigh...

    soft touch finish is only the Best Buy version.
    I hate soft touch because they inevitably deteriorate and become sticky after several years.

    Any reviews on the gl503vs-dh74 yet? Is the 144hz IPS or TN? Sellers aren’t displaying consistent results.
