    How to ruin your battery life
     
    1. Be obsessed with information
    2. Use things that stress the GPU all the time
    3. Use Gsync and high refresh rate monitor

    I'm reading a write-up on Tom's Hardware on NVIDIA's Turing hardware and it's something on the level of what I'd say Ryan Smith from AnandTech would've wrote. It sheds a lot of light on the architecture that NVIDIA didn't talk about back in GamesCom.
     
    The first bit that really caught my attention was on this page https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nvidia-turing-gpu-architecture-explored,5801-4.html
    The integer cores allow for concurrent FP and INT operations to happen, whereas previously the GPU couldn't (wonder if this is the same on GCN since I don't think GCN has integer units) The scheduling was changed to allow for concurrent execution, so this increases instruction throughput A unified cache structure for the load-store unit, which NVIDIA claims helps keep the CUDA cores fed. This reminds me of what NVIDIA did with Maxwell, when they moved from each SM unit having 4 schedulers competing against 192 CUDA cores down to a single scheduler having 32 CUDA cores each.
     
    There's also a few other things that looked interesting like:
    Variable rate shading, so the game can have the GPU shade in up to 4x4 blocks to save time Some new "Mesh shader" which helps with LODs The hybrid RT algorithm is explained in more detail, and it can be emulated on Pascal (obviously very slowly)  
    Anyway, the whole thing can be found at https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nvidia-turing-gpu-architecture-explored,5801.html

    That's why I liked the cooling of Y530...never thought that 8300H can achieve such high score. Solid performance due to nice cooling solution with low frequency fan noise. Unfortunately my unit has bad stock paste (around 10 degree core temp difference under load), might do a repaste soon.
     
    Edit: with -0.1V undervolt

    Not surprising.
     
    Asus low end gaming laptops (FX series) are meh. Mid range ones (GL503/703 CFL-H models) are OK but slightly expensive. Mid-high range like GL504 is a bit disappointing due to price and some issues (cooling related again, sigh). High end range is hit or miss, Zephyrus M is excellent, regular Zephyrus is a bit meh while G series is expensive and not worth it.
     
    MSI is having some trouble with the QC in their gaming laptops recently. They improved the build quality and cooling in the new CFL-H GL and GP models but introduced GV and GF models which is basically the old GL and GP rebrand. Overall lineup is decent though.
     
    Not to mention that both companies have strong fanbase and best in marketing stuffs.

    This is just silly for 200MHz extra clock speed and 0.7V extra Vcore. That's the same gain I get by going from 4GHz to 4.5GHz.

    512GB SSD for affordable price. Just keep in mind that Ryzen APU don't work well with 15W TDP (need to configure 25W, however this is not possible in thin chassis with mediocre cooling), also worse battery life.

    The old case wont allow using the new cooler (not just being too tall, but the plate where standoffs go flex badly). Since I have to take everything out anyway, it shall go 'streaking' for a day or two till I buy a proper case
     

     
    That's how we call PCs running without a case.
