Similar to the previous deal, but with the 512 instead of the 256GB SSD and 64 GB of Ram!
I overclocked the other model (with less SSD and Ram, but same CPU/GPU combo) and got 8th place in fastest 1070 sli laptops in the world category in 3D Mark Time Spy. IF you plan on using VR with this, you may need to buy a 4k enabled Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter.
Some quick Q&A:
Is it large? Yeah, its friggin huge, but comes with its own backpack - Its meant to be a portable desktop rather than a, "I can play WOW while taking a dump" laptop.
What about weight? It weighs more than any laptop, but thats not really the burden (again, you shouldn't be using this on your friggin lap) its the dual power bricks that add that extra bit of weight that goes over the top.
I heard the main power plug that goes in to the rear is loose? Yes, its fine of you have the space for it to lie there, but if you plan on having the power cable hang off the back like if this unit is on the edge of a table it WILL fall out.
1070 SLI with a 1080p screen is super stupid, right? It pretty much is overkill - good thing they sold it with that though. When its docked at home I use a 1440p and play every game I own at a minimum of 60fps in maxed out settings without paying extra for a panel i'll rarely use. They have SLI laptops in 17.3 in configs that have higher DPI screens with higher refresh rates.... and cost a lot more - buy one of those.
I heard SLI is dead and I'd be a fool to buy this, true? No, but SLI can cause issues depending on whats trying to run it - I won't say SLI is perfect, but for games like PUBG that use it.... Blows a 1080 out of the water and outperforms a 1080ti as well.
What about heat? My Alienware 17R4 routinely went about 85c and even with a repaste stayed at 75c+. Most desktops without large chunks of money spent on the best cooling get around 50-60c and so does this beast. In fact if you turn on turbo (using headphone to drown out the noise) the temps never go above 60c stress testing!
I heard the touch pad sucks? The touch pad is awesome.... the number pad sucks and the drivers need to be reinstalled immediately after you update Windows out of the box.
Does this have RGB lighting? No - spend $1,500 more for that.
