    If it weren’t for gaming I’d take one for sure! Looks nice and sleek too on top of the perf value

    I have a GM7TG7P, and it looks like my chargers barrel plug is 5.5mm outer diameter, 2.5mm inner diameter. Although this was measured somewhat creatively with a ballpoint tip as explained here. I ordered a 100w Baseus Gan2 charger together with this cable. It should arrive by mid november (fingers crossed), so then I can let you know if everything fits properly and how this setup works.

    Yes. Hybrid and dGPU modes are available via the Control Center. Also in the bios you can select a third option iGPU mode which leaves the Nvidia 3070 disabled and invisible to the OS. Note that in dGPU mode the TB4 cannot display video output, and likewise in iGPU mode the HDMI cannot display video output. I believe XMG stated the hardware is capable of connecting both ports to either card, so maybe in a future bios update this behavior may change.

    FYI, I just got the Maingear Vector Pro 15.6" with i7 11800H and RTX 3070. To my amazement Intel adaptive sync actually works. You can enable adaptive sync in the Intel graphics command center and then you also must enable VRR in Windows graphics settings. Works perfectly. Posted in case anyone is holding off on going Intel in favor of AMD due to FreeSync.

    I have the tongfang model with 11800h and 3080, as reported in my post, the new bios has fixed the situation for tb4 port, now I have ila 3080 direct on the external monitor

    The CyberPowerPC model has a lid logo and standard thermal paste. I have heard their warranty service is not great.

    I ordered their ready to ship 11800h/3070 Ram 16gb 2666mhz plus coupon code for: $1,490.55 pre-tax

    Figured it was a good deal to take a chance. I take laptops apart so I can take care for any after market stuff like repasting and what not.
    Will stress test it and return if there's something egregious or crazy new laptops are announced by intel in upcoming days.

    I was disappointed by the Prometheus. Namely the touchpad is way too big to the point of almost being unusable. Such a shame because the performance is good.
    Some projects have come down the pipeline so e-sport gaming is being cut back (no more hard requirement for high response time panel). Really hoping to like the CPC and it works so I can stop this buy/return pattern i've been on these last few weeks -.-

    Does anyone know about the battery life capabilities of the 11800H vs 5800H maingear vector pro 15.6" (maingear's max - 15)? Thanks.
