This is a very welcome addition, it is a bit pathetic what webcameras they put on most gaming laptops, though. I am consistently finding more windows hello compatible webcams in clevo/whiteboard manufacturers than brand name laptops. IR camera sensors are quite cheap. They should have become standard stock even on cheap laptops long ago.

Gaming laptops with high end components always have to compromise on cooling.

12h on a slim gaming ontebook is very impressive.
I wonder what MSRP on these is.

Given that ASUS' G15 with 6800M is $1650, I hope it's reasonable.
Gruffalo.Soldiercompromise on cooling.
ASUS G15 checks have shown that the only compromise there was, was ASUS managing to cripple 6800m (which still fared formidably) by slower RAM.

Go over to bestbut and check the reviews on this model. It's appears to have lots of issues with the AMD 6800m. Either the gpu fails or overheating. It's getting pretty bad reviews.

Hence my point of compromised cooling.

I don't think it's cooling issues,this laptop has a vapor chamber. It seems like a bad gpu.

Reviw by real buyer or paid troll? If real are they comparing Junction Temperature of AMD laptop with Egde Tempeture of Nvidia GPU. If yes then it is a invalid compairsion.

Those reviewers only have the laptop for at best 3-4 days to test it out. And I only see less than a hand full of reviews of this model on YouTube
To leave any review comments on bestbuy you would have need to buy a item to leave a review.

I see lots of comments on the bad thermal paste job. It uses liquid metal for TIM.

Well, IF I do have to go to Thailand for extended stays, then I'd probably get an all AMD gaming laptop with an RX 6800M + R9 5900HX for my gaming fix while I'm there. Can't possibly bring my main rig + monitor there.....

There's issues with other ASUS laptops as well. I've had 3 TUF 15 FA506IV laptops in the past 12 months or so - and they keep failing. Ryzen 4800h, RTX 2060. No overheating as far as HWinfo can tell, but after a couple of months of use they sart throwing "DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION BSOD" randomly when booting into windows, or just a black screen. After a while more the laptop will refuse to boot with the nvidia driver installed.

I said 3 laptops because the first two were replaced by ASUS under warranty, I'm currently on the 3rd - and last week this one has started to display DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION for 1-2 out of 10 bootups. Seems to be rather common issue according to forums... When this one fails I'm asking for my money back.

Too bad. This is the only performance laptop with a 90wh battery I could find... and I was quite happy with it (performance, temps, battery life, display, size and weight, keyboard layout, touchpad....)

Did it use liquid metal thermal compound for TIM

I have no idea, never bothered to take them apart since they are under warranty - but like I said, they don't overeat. Max CPU temp is 89C in turbo mode and 85 in standard (quiet mode). Max GPU temp I've seen is 78C and that's after a few hours of gaming. Something else is making these laptops fail...

Right.
And merely do things to laptops that some users don't do for years, if at all.

So you were saying?

Bad GPU? We do have pretty much the same (chips) on desktops & it sure ain't bad there, looks like MSI cheaped out on the cooling necessary for it!

The laptop that I mentioned is Asus. The MSI laptops the OP mentioned are not out yet.

Ok, let's make that ASUS. The point about the GPU still stands ~ what bad GPU?
