    Congrats! That's probably what I would do if the 4K model was available at more stores (Best Buy is always my go to because of the rewards but they only carry the FHD ones). It's just easier all around.

    the cpu doesn't impress me. maybe I should wait for Blade Pro. However I heard from the razer store associates in San Francisco that razer is no longer making 17 inches laptop. Maybe no more blade pro? This makes me want to order from hidevolution and install the 64GB RAM and Thermal compound overhaul just to make the Blade Advanced perform better.

    Joikansai please shed some light into this matter. Is razer discontinuing the blade pro? Also Hidevolution doesn't have the 2080 4k

    Serious question though. Can you properly cool the card? There are issues with heat on the full size pc cards with full sized heat spreaders. Varying makers are having beads fracture/melt, fans warp, connectors short out, fire etc. Can you actually say that this laptop will be usable? When I say usable, will you be able to put it in your lap without giving your legs burns when it is under load? Or that it won't start melting components? In a full size system, there are additional ways to mitigate the heat but not so much in your extreme thin profile laptops. There is the additional problem of a battery pack close by. Intense heat for prolonged periods there could cause that sucker to rupture then even more problems.

    @Preystation 4K Blade 15 is also not available yet here on Germany store unlike other model that are already available since 29th. About the Pro I’ve no sight but hope it’ll continue. 8th gen 6 cores cpu runs hotter than 7th gen, higher clock on thin cassis may invite heat issues. It’s not rarely i found i9 or higher clock 8850H performance is worse than my 8750H like on MacBook and Aero from Gigabyte, maybe due limitation from manufacturer or thermal throttle, so maybe 8750H for now is sweet spot on this form factor.

    I don't think that combination is available anywhere, actually.
    Based on Razer's own specs, the 4K display is only offered with the 2070maxQ (at least, for now).

    Source: Approx. Weight section near the very bottom of the Specs
    (copied for convenience)
    • RTX 2060 models: 4.56 lbs / 2.07 kg
    • RTX 2070/2080 Full HD models: 4.63 lbs / 2.10 kg
    • RTX 2070 4K models: 4.73 lbs / 2.15 kg
    I've been waiting for the Pro for like forever, but I'm really tempted to dive in for the 4K Blade; now, that the memory is finally upgradeable to 64GB. I'm still holding out for a version with 9th gen Intel silicon, though. For gaming power, the current 8th gen part is probably fine; although I've seen suggestions that the CPU may be the bottleneck on the new RTX laptops. In any case, I'm hoping for a more exotic feature: SGX 2.0 support...

    Not sure if Razer folks respond to this kind of stuff but is there an ETA on the 4K model? I need one for work and may have to go with the Alienware m17.

    8950hk?

    The m17 uses dual power bricks. Id have gone with it if they didn’t have that.

    How about the max-p variant? They had max-p variant at ces.

    Really? Woof. Thanks for letting me know.

    Amazon shows the 4K variant arriving mid February if you go ahead and buy it. There's one for sale on ebay as well at a crazy price that says it'll deliver around the same time. So maybe there's something to that. I can hold off til then.

    Max-P? What is Max-P?
     
  17. Preystation

    Preystation Active Member

    Max p is the non max q variant. The p stands for performance. Razer is quiet about this. I don’t want to buy the current advanced 15 2080 then regret buying if the new one came out afterward.

    Yeah, I just found this article about Samsung using the term "Max-P" last year but removing it after :

    "Samsung recently divulged the name "Max-P" to describe the GTX 1060 GPU in its upcoming Odyssey Z gaming laptop before quietly removing the word. However, we can confirm that "Max-P" is simply a standard GPU without the Max-Q designation. The GTX 1050, 1050 Ti, 1060, 1070, and 1080 found on most gaming laptops are all technically "Max-P" graphics cards so long as they are not Max-Q GPUs." (source : https://www.notebookcheck.net/Nothi...is-just-a-regular-non-Max-Q-GPU.301592.0.html from 2018/04/29)

    So basically, Max-P is anything not Max Q. Like the Blade 2060, which is not Max Q. They are all (RTX) out already and part of the "thicker" laptops line. Don't expect to see a full blown 2070 or 2080 in a thin & light like the Razer Blade, Gigabyte Aero 15, etc ...

    Im so tempted to buy this. But perhaps this generation ill go with asus. Why? I just got wind of frys passing out 20% coupon to the first 25 people today. (frys is an electronic super store in usa). I finish work in 5 hours. And ill go to the frys at concord California and wait in line yay.

    20% off 3000-4000$ laptop is a lot of money saved.
