I wonder if the 4 and 6 core variants run any cooler.
Is 130w from the USB-C charger going to enough under heavy loads, for the RTX 2060 variant?
It'll be close, the CPU has a TDP of 45 watts and the RTX 2060 has an estimated power draw of 80 - 90 watts(according to notebookcheck).
There will be significant throttling somewhere. The 10875h can consume 100w on its own when unrestricted at stock speeds. The 2060 can easily do 80-90w. There is a reason 9880h + 2060 laptops of yesteryear had 180w power supplies.
I hope each component individually will be able to stretch its legs. There is no chance both can be maxed simultaneously.
The 2060 isn't going to be a full speed, it will be max-q for sure. The CPU will be limited to 45w (short PL1 power may be 55w). So you're looking at 65w for the 2060 and 45w for the CPU which means 130w is the bare minimum. Sure you can lift the power limits on the CPU with TS and you may be able to bios flash a full 2060 bios which puts you way out of the power envelope, but the cooling won't handle that. This is NOT a gaming laptop.
A shame Dell still hasn't adopted the Ryzen R9 yet...I was hoping dell would come out with an XPS with the 4800HS or 4900HS...
I was looking and the 4k is touch. That's a good thing.
With the kickbacks Intel provides the big players, I don’t see this happening for a while.
Does anyone know if the new XPS 17 9700 is compatible with a PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD? Does it have the right physical connection, and can the computer realize the performance advantages of Gen4 over Gen3 SSDs?
It doesn't look like it. I think AMD is the only company doing PCIe 4.0. Then again, there isn't much benefit RIGHT now (but more later!).
