    Laptop j11 uploaded a footage recently with his mobile camera without obs. The s17 manages a score of 15.6k in R23, running at 4.7 GHz.



    @Papusan your prediction turned out to be true. Tiger Lake has the potential to literally annihilate the desktop rocket lake, provided there's an ample amount of thermal headroom. So far, the Zephyrus S17 seems to be a better choice than the Alienware X17 any day xD. (Although anything is better than Alienware's X series, lol).

    He has uploaded yet another video. It broke the 6000 mark in Cinebench R20, and 2427 points in Cinebench R15. Its crazy power for a laptop, lol. I wonder if the S17 can sustain this wattage for long periods of time, but regardless this is the best result from a tiger lake laptop that we have seen so far.

    I'd like to know more about the quality of the display with qhd resolution but haven't found a review that covers it. Having only 300 nits brightness seems underwhelming.

    ASUS ROG Zephyrus S17 GX703 (GX703HS model - Core i9 + RTX 3080 140W, 4K 120Hz screen) (ultrabookreview.com)

    The QHD and 4k displays have 100% DCI-P3. This review said QHD, but it is actually the 4k model they were measuring. For the 4k display it is 500 nits. No information on the QHD yet regarding brightness.

    Managed to get a good deal on the Alienware X17. If the Zephyrus S17 arrives before the return deadline for the X17 I will post some comparisons of the performance differences between the two. The X17 I managed to get for $3400. I will decide on which one to keep after some testing.

    Alienware X17
    • i7-11800H
    • 32gb-3200 ddr4 memory
    • 512gb ssd (I have 2x1tb SK hynix Gold p31 that I can swap in)
    • Cherry MX keyboard
    • 4k 120hz screen
    • 2 year premium plus warranty
    • Price: $3400 before taxes.
    • Before discounts the pretax price was ~$3900
    Got the extra warranty because it's Alienware, so extra insurance doesn't hurt.
