RTX 3050 Ti benchmarks for reference: https://www.notebookcheck.net/NVI...430.0.html

I'm not an expert, but from what I gather from the data, the 3050 Ti is mostly better in performance than the 2060, but not quite as good as the 2070.

I wonder how hot these new i7's run. The 10th gen chips struggled with thermal throttling.

Something you should know: the new GP line doesn't have usb c port.

Looks like a good deal. First i've seen of a 3050Ti.

Looks like the RTX 3060/3070 are Max-Q. I wonder how many watts to GPU.

looking at the AC adapter that comes with the GP 66 3070/3080 model, 280w, I would say it should have the full powered 3070/3080

These are mostly bad deals. The GP 3070 is the best deal here but no USB c port, low quality chassis is quite concerning.

The MSI Pulse is awful, it's only a max q 80w 3060 and thermals are poor, fugly chassis too. So, the 3070 GP is the one to get if you aren't willing to wait for better options or don't want a alienware for whatever reason.

Unfortunately they aren't max P. The 3070 is 115w, not 130w like alienware and L5 pro/L7, and the 3080 is probably only 115w too and not 150w, it's also only 8GB VRAM gimped variant like some Asus 3080's. So definitely don't go above a 3070 here

If it's a max-q, this isn't worth buying especially Asus strix scar or gigabyte 3070 from gentech gives you max-P for the same $$$$. max-P is 25% more fps.

I am not sure if that is accurate.
Looking at the previous 10th gen cpu + 3070 on an earlier model reviewed here:
https://www.notebookcheck.net/MSI...l#toc-case

The older model did have 130W 3070

It seemsvery likely that this new version will atleast have 130W 3070 which is 10W less than whats there in legion 5 pro.. but its closer to max-p than max-q

With dynamic boost I believe. They aren't max q no doubt, but technically aren't max p and leave a bit on the table in terms of wattage. Which is odd given the quality of the chassis. Overall, MSI generally gets good with their GE series, which is pretty much the most expensive laptops around but hey, if you're willing to fork over the he cash I guess.

11800H... Intel is so desperate vs Ryzen that they will probably be up to 15800H before year end.

Is This better price for RTX 3060 at best buy. ?
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/msi-...Id=6448272

Just an i5 and 8 gig ram. but for gaming it should be still good.
144hz screen as well..

Do you (or anyone) know if there is advantage/disadvantage of BestBuy over the matching 3060 in the OP? i7 vs i5? Is the memory upgradable in BeatBuy computer? Thanks
