I personnaly think that there is only 2 options with this new generation of RTX laptop: You want the best performance in a thin 15" laptop, you don t care about price/performance ratio: go rtx2080. You care about price/perfomance ratio or don't need/want the best: go maxq 1070 with big discount. At least that the way I see it. RTX is a gimmick for now, especially on a laptop where turning on RTX really give poor performance. DLSS might help in the future, but you pay expensive now for a tech that you will not enjoy before at least months. I am going for the 2080 because I can aford it and because I know that I will change at the next generation (especially with oled and better gpu). Else I might just have go for a 1070 maxQ at discount price.
