    Yeah, this looks really interesting. I'm looking to upgrade for 4K video editing and I was heavily looking at the MSI Creator 17. Depending on how the prices stack up, maybe this could be the better option. I guess I just have to wait until they're both released (mid-June, I think they're both saying) to see how they perform in real-world situations. I do wish there were larger options for creators with the new Ryzen CPUs, though. Those things look ideal for creators but our only options are Intel 10th Gen at the moment which is sad.

    How come? You said undervolt is really important for you. Oh wait, it's looked on these. Good luck.

    I do like the undervolting option and shame on Intel just like AMD for locking it down. Nice of you to keep tabs though. But remember, undervolts don't help?

    No, I said it is mandatory for current (lol current) Intel, and basically irrelevant for the 7nm Ryzen. And now with these 10th gen burn hot as the core of the sun Intel even more.

    Yes you postulate that it's irrelevant for 7nm Ryzen. Sadly the 4800H is running pretty hot in laptops, but not surprising when we think about all the cores...

    You can grab a ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 with a 4900HS from Best Buy for only $1449. Comes with a 120hz screen but the lack of a webcam is kind of a deal breaker in the COVID19 era of remote working/school.

    Yes the Zephyrus G14 looks amazing, both on paper and also by design. Sadly a configuration you mentioned with a 4900HS costs 1800Eur ($1950) in Europe with a 1660ti. 2300Eur ($2500) with RTX2060.

    dave2d is pretty excited about the xps 17, especially the thermal design compared to the new xps 15
