    Nvidia dGPU has power saving mode while it's on battery but it still consumes more power than iGPU because it's 2 components versus 1. It's harder to satisfy both at the same time but since it's gaming system we like those raw power.

    I just found out that this massive gaming laptop has soldered CPU.....
    Why?? I really didn't expect that, because even my GT60 has PGA...

    Well.. I couldn't find LGA Clevo in country I currently live in anyway...

    Maybe I should return laptop and just go for desktop...

    Is it really bad? If no way to upgrade, what to do after 3 years? Just trash it? Smh..

    So? Your 8750H is about 50% faster than 3630QM - that's not too much development in 6 years. Other factors do prompt an upgrade - faster interfaces and Graphics for instance. I'm still pleased with my 3630QM performance on my backup laptop. You want desktop processors - get a Sager/Clevo clone.

    22nm vs 14nm++?
    6 cores with 45 TDP instead of 4?

    Don't think that we would have a 6 core mobile CPU in 22nm for taptops and if yes i think they would be much thicker than the GTXx Series taptops.

    I concur with zipperi. We have many enthusiasts on the forum who would love to have PGA but with current market situation, LGA is pretty much meant for desktop enthusiasts while BGA is mainly meant to notebook systems because not many users upgrade the processors nowadays. Besides, each year a new platform/generation comes out which requires more pins, newer chipset, costs, etc, which made CPU/GPU upgrade less appeal.
    There's MSI 16L13 to go with if you must have to have LGA, see below for review. You can also check with Eurocom for the Coffee Lake offering, specifically the F7 model.

    No more Pin Grid Array (PGA) sir. Land Grid Array (LGA).

    ok, I see what is happening here...

    Another question:
    External monitor connected to HDMI. Laptop turns off display after some time of inactivity, when I move the mouse or something - it turns on only laptop's display, but not external. What's up with that and how to fix this?

    Maybe it's monitor's problem, HDMI 1 works ok (but its 30hz 4k), HDMI 2 doesn't turn ON display in this case, even though power button light is changing.

    Hard to say without knowing which kind of external display you use....
    in this case i must guess and would say your hdmi 2 port could be an MHL HDMI Port and this Port is normally for mobile phones and tablets to connect them with your display.
