I think its been proven over the years that these supposed high end configurations don't work on a laptop. It costs a bomb for the specs, but in reality they don't outperform laptops with lower end configurations due to thermal constraints. Upgradability is highly questionable as well if you look beyond RAM and SSD. For the price, one could easily get a laptop with mid range specs, and use the remaining money to get a high performance desktop (perhaps an ITX) instead. Considering you need to lug 2x power supplies for this laptop, how portable can this be?

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should...

Sounds like it's gonna power limit throttle at standard 2x PSU and 3x PSU is needed to prevent it lol.

Nevermind thermals.

It's probably done in the lab with some infinite heatsink's at 25oC

Kewl, now make that chassis with a better processor, like AMD's and I might be interested, oh and make it a RTX 3070 too.

EXACTLY. Alienware tried to use the 2080 early on and basically created a radiator.

This isn't a, "workstation". This is a gaming beast that increases ambient room temperature by 10 degrees.
