    For me, it’s 1080P performance. I know my current GS65 with a 1070 Max-Q will last a while in terms of performance, but I’m hoping that the 2080 Max-Q will elongate that even more. If this new GS65 works out, I don’t plan on upgrading at all until a new game cant hit 60FPS on ultra or new GPU tech is introduced.

    The flipped motherboard doesn’t bother me since I’d have HID Evolution do the repaste but I’m wondering if they’ve strengthened up the case or not. I’m still trying to decide if I want this or the GS75.

    If you can wait until Friday, I’ll let you know. I’m ordering on Tuesday and it should arrive Friday.
    As an FYI, the entire laptop is slightly THICKER than the 2018 model. It’s either they made more room for the new cooler OR the chassis is thicker OR both lol

    I can definitely wait. I’d mainly upgrade due to the fact that RTX is brand new and Nvidia doesn’t refresh graphics cards very often. I’m guessing it’s thicker to fit the newer cooler but stiffening up the chassis would be nice

    I've pre-ordered Metro Exodus and after looking it's very high system requirements I've decided to get the 2080 max-q model over the older 1070 max-q.

    Can't wait for its launch :p

    It's slightly heavier than the 1st generation of GS 65, and they moved the trackpad inner, so it should be less prone to bending.

    Following the thread but uncertain if do the upgrade to the RTX 2080 or not. Price in Spain is 3099€, I expect the same in Italy (at the moment, only the 2070 version is available, 200€ more expensive than the pre order of the 1st generation GTX 1070 that came around 2399€).
    So, If I sold my GS 65 8 RF and I buy the GS 65 8 SG, I spend 1000€ to get a theorical +45% performance from GPU... Mmm maybe I'll jump to the 3rd generation...?

    Pity there weren't any real game benchmarks tho. Only Firestrike and cinebench.

    Firestrike score:

    Indeed

    I'm pleasantly surprised by its score which is already higher than a desktop 2070 without any OC. Looks promising indeed.
