    I wouldn't expect RTX prices to drop significantly anytime soon, unless AMD ups their game and comes up with something comparable, which I think is unlikely. However, I suspect we'll see some new entry to mid-range GPUs from NVDIA without the RTX branding and ray tracing (GTX 1150 Ti, 1160 or something similar) during 2019, first to desktops, then to laptops. Thoughts?

    Yeah I miss my 16L13, my desktop is rocking a 1080TI, not upgrading the the 2080Ti...yet...

    What is the keyboard issue you are seeing, were you able to get it resolved.

    Sorry for the late reply, have been consumed by work lately.

    EDIT:

    Found your post about the shift key. I was having some really weird issues with keys and as well as my mouse not being responsive. I was using a wireless xbox controller before hand. Long story short it is the XINPUT driver that was causing hella bad issues for me. Turning off bluetooth(Controller was bluetooth) immediately fixes my issues. It's a windows thing at least and not hardware.

    But if you see the pc specialist link the 2060 is available today for $1500 . I am expecting OP to release these at their killer prices again to retain their market share :) ! Also that could be the reason why they cleared out their 1060 laptop dirt cheap .

    Sure the 17 inch wont be available for $999 but I dont expect them to be $1500 as well.

    It's similar to the Clevo PA-71, which I returned in favor of this model actually, mainly since the thermals were not as good. The build quality is very nice though, if you are willing to look past a sub-standard keyboard.

    The PA-70 is also the same model but with red accents.

    EDIT: Sorry, I am referring to the older Defiance V, not the newer. I do not know this particular model, but it looks very thin... and hot.

    I did some digging and I think it might be the new Clevo P97.

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Clevo...models-with-Nvidia-RTX-graphics.390371.0.html

    I have concerns about the thermals as well. Not because of the RTX GPUs but the i7-8750H... Probably will stick with the Recoil II.

    Interesting! Comparing the Defiance VI RTX 2060 model with their Recoil II RTX 2060, they are pretty similar price-wise. The Recoil II is just 1.6% more expensive when specced the same (with RTX 2060), though it is also 38% thicker. The Defiance has a slightly larger footprint, however, which translates to thicker bezels.

    If comparing the Defiance VI RTX 2070 Max-Q with the Recoil II RTX 2070, the Recoil II becomes the cheaper option, also boasting better performance. The Recoil II has a 230W adapter.

    Only the Defiance VI is available in the RTX 2080 (Max-Q), but at a steep premium, and will the thin chassis really support it? Also, only a 180W adapter is available.

    The RTX 2070 vs. 2080 Max-Q will be an intruiging comparison once the mobile benchmarks are out. The only reason I see to get the Defiance VI with RTX 1060/1070 in this case is if you needed the thinner chassis and wanted longer battery life. NVIDIA Optimus is not listed as an option for either laptop, though we know the Recoil II includes it. Perhaps the Defiance VI has G-Sync, but this would not be a sensible solution for the form factor.

    I ended up going against what I said I was going to do and just repasted as opposed to returning. I used Kryonaut on the GPU and Conductonaut on the CPU (after watching about 100 tutorials, mind you). I'm happy to report that my temperatures are absolutely fantastic now. After reading here and in the 15(+) thread I also did some work on adjusting what I'm guessing is the TDP (under TPL in Throttlestop). With Turbo Boost Power Max set at 65 and Short Power Max set to 75, I'm achieving 1244 in Cinebench with temperatures maxing out at 58 Celsius. Seems really good to me?

    *Edit: Max fan speed, of course.

    Glad to see Eluktronics offering their Mech G2 laptops with RTX graphics now!

    https://www.eluktronics.com/MECH-17

    You can get a barebones RTX 2070 model for around $1500-1600, which is not bad! Throw in a 512GB PCIe M.2 SSD, and 16GB 2400mhz RAM, and that's around $1800, which isn't bad for a 2070 laptop.
