    sager's p950hr clocks*
    1101 Mhz Base
    1266 Mhz Turbe
    1316 Mhz during gameplay

    Compared to the max Q gtx 1070 in other laptops that run at
    1215 Mhz Base
    1379 Mhz Turbo
    1480 Mhz during gameplay

    What version does the p950er use

    Where did you get the above information and numbers from - it will help us all to answer your question. Also are you talking about the Sager version of this chassis (the Sager NP8851), or the Clevo P950ER? There's only one GPU option in this Clevo chassis and the boost clock in games goes to 1480 MHz (as our testing confirms).

    Aero 15x gtx 1070 max q (3d mark 15500 graphics score)

    quote from https://m.pclab.pl/art74974-2.html about the gtx 1070 max q in P950ER :

    3. Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q is the latest energy-saving version of the mobile system, which TDP is limited to 80-90 W, depending on the manufacturer of the laptop. The GPU has not been truncated in any way, so we still have 2048 CUDA units at our disposal, but their timing has been significantly slowed down. The base clock frequency is 1101 MHz, while in turbo mode the graphics core can accelerate to 1266 MHz. In The Witcher 3, the actual clock speed oscillated around 1200 MHz. The limitation was the power consumption limit, which is rigidly set to 80 W.

    Overclock it back then. It has been underclocked because Clevo has crap cooling systems.

    Sager lowered the TDP limit as will(the same TDP limit as a laptop 1060......). Even a +50 mhz oc will be hard to achieve

    There are a couple MSI models that I see with the full 1070 in the 1600 range. But they have the kabylake processors and not the newer Coffeelake.

    I mean this is always the case with everything in life. There is most of the time a good reason as to why a product is more expensive than another. Yes the MSI notebooks do cost more, but have better cooling, speakers, screen, keyboard, software etc.
