    Does this sentence "However, with GSync and no eGPU, you’re still not going to get much in terms of battery life." mean that it will not be possible to connect a eGPU like Razer Core to this laptop?

      It was supposed to say dGPU. An eGPU should work, although compatibility with the Core is uncertain and should be tested.

    Would the rtx 2060 date better with fam noise?

      It should, yes, but the more important benefit would be lower temperatures. There should be good value in the RTX 2060 variants of most laptops, better than with the 2070s and definitely better than with the expensive 2080s.

    Notebookcheck just published their review of the Triton 500 with the 2080 MQ and found the 180W charger was sufficient. They didn't mention anything about battery discharge. Do you know anyone there that you could chat with to see if perhaps they didn't run the right tests to determine whether the battery discharges or not?

      Interesting. I would trust their measurements. I think our sample worked differently though, and it discharged with games on the overclocked profile. They don't seem to mention anything about the OC GPU profile, nor have a lot of gaming tests.

      They mention 1215 MHz for the GPU in Witcher and fairly low temperatures, we got around 1500 Mhz in Far Cry 5 and Battlefield V, which are similarly demanding titles, with higher temperatures. Thus the GPU in our sample performed better, so it drew more power. HWinfo did not recognize the GPU at the time of the article, so I don't have any exact TDP data for the GPU.

      Also, look at the VDDC value here: https://www.ultrabookreview.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/perf-temps-gaming-farcry-default.png, it's much higher compared to the one on their Witcher 3 log.

      They also don't post any 3Dmark results, so there's really no way to tell how their sample compared to ours.
