    help me understand one thing.
    63,8w in gaming does not seem that much. but i do know that the gpu alone has 90w tdp/power consumption and the cpu is also quite power hungry under load.
    the only thing i can assume is that frequencies are very low, far from their peak. so as the performance.
    i dont mind spending my money on premium things like build quality, materials, features, the fastest ssd, best cooling or brightest screen, but not for empty numbers.
    63.8w in witcher tells me that 8x5ghz cores and 2080s is an empty marketing numbers which will cost me a thousand bucks.
    and it still noisy and hot.
    so where is the trick? don't you think that 4600r+2060 will provide similar performance for a thousand dollars less? and if so, the laptop should get 1 point out of 5, not 4.5.
    where did i go wrong?

      It's not fair to compare products outside of their segment, especially when those products don't even exist. With this niche, you're paying a premium for the build, features and specs, and within its niche, the Blade 15 is one of the best offers out there. Whether if it's for you or whether a 2080 Super laptop is even worth buying right now, that's up to you to decide.

      Sure, an AMD HS configuration within a similar chassis would be extremely interesting, but that's not the subject of this review.

    Hi, I know it is not the object of this review, but do you know if the X1 extreme 3rd gen has (finally) better speakers with respect to the previous generations? All these laptops (including the Razer) are soo expensive and the speakers are soo bad (same for the webcam …). Quite unaccettable given their prices. Many thanks.

    Razer keeps putting the ribbon for the screen on that stupid position without reinforcement. It INEVITABLY breaks stopping the signal to the screen or the camera. The chassis is very sensitive to flex over time, especially in the screen bezels, the keyboard still bulges over time due to the high temperature delta on the chassis during gaming. The PSU and battery suppliers are the same, so bloating and PSU catastrophic failure are a certainty not a possibility, it's a matter of when, not if. With that said, the perf/peice on offer is absurd and the QC and build quality do not correspond to the price. And that's before mentioning the CS in Europe which is completely flooded and clearly under cost saving measures. I think if these sites want to be respected as reviewers of laptops they should definitely contact laptop repair stores on record. A store can easily tell the writer that Razer laptops have severe build and design issues that make it a very unreliable product/brand. It's a shame, the KB lighting and look are really top, unfortunately it's a clear case of form over function. Real shame!
