    For content creators is a super mobile workstation. In raytracerts AMD GPU perform better that nvidia.

    Is that Ryzen cpu soldered or not onto the motherboard? could you take a photo of that without the heatsink?

    The problem is that it can not support more tdp with that cooling solution.

    This could be upgradable if proper motherboard firmware would be released.

    Even if Intel make 6core mobile cheaps I do not think in 45w tdp will much the performance not ryzen 1700 in multithreading.

    Hi, have you tried maybe to undervolt the GPU? The RX 580 usually submit pretty well to undervolting and people say this bring the temperatures down pretty well without hurting performance. This is typical for AMD cards as of late. If you still have the machine it is worth a try.

      No, and I returned it already. Unfortunately my experience with AMD cards is basically null and I didn't think about this when I still had the laptop.

    Do someone know the thickness of the mechanical HDD so to be able to be replaced with a 3 or 4 th 2.5". It makes sense for using it as a mobile workstation.

    Given the fact that this is basically a desktop system put in a laptop case, I think it is very good. 40W consumed in normal tasks considering this doesn't have any graphics switching option, an 8 core CPU and a power hungry AMD GPU, 17 inch display and a chipset designed for desktop, I think it is pretty good.
    If you look at desktop replacements with Intel desktop CPUs (7700K) you will see that they are ~ same from consumption and acoustics perspective.

      I agree, I just wanted to make sure potential buyers understand that. This is after all a laptop and people might expect to be able to use a laptop on battery :)

    Finally a ROG laptop with a powerful and properly socketed cpu(not that BGA calculator-hardware that intel makes for laptops since 2015 and not LGA with enormous socket) …comes with a non-replaceable soldered on mid-level gpu. This is awkward.
