New Mobile CPUs?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi LTT community,

Scroll down to the part in bold if you dont care about my life and just wanna answer my question.

I am a Student with a decent payed side-job, looking for a new setup. Current setups: (i5 6600K 4.6GHz; GTX1060 6GB; 16GB Ram; 500GB SSD 740evo; 750GB salvaged HDD from some laptop) (Acer V5 i5 3330U; GT 720 2GB; 8GB Ram)

Yes current setup is not bad. However, I am a student and need therefore a light portable laptop that has great battery life and does not look gamerish. Then I need a computer where i can game and stay in touch with long distance friends. My struggle is that i wanna have one system. Therefore I am lokking for a nice lightweight laptop eg. MSI 15 Prestige. Where i can game when I am traveling abroad and when back home plug into a RTX2070 for example.

 

My issue so far is that with the current E-GPU setup over TB3 the 4x lanes (3,938GB/s) and a normal Graphics card being around (6.4 GB/s) I wont bother considering this setup. However, now comes the question: With the new Intel mobile CPUs whenever they release them, with the PCI-e 4.0 the speed of 4x lanes will be (7,877GB/s) hence no bottleneck in theory. Do you think that if such laptop is bought the current lets say Razer Core X chroma will support over TB3 the new  PCI-e 4.0? I mean TB3 has 40GB/s in theory right? Thank you for your time!!!

the bottleneck is still the thunderbolt connection so pcie 4.0 won't help

With dmi 4 or pcie 4 

The thunderbolt connector will still manage to send 4 gigs worth of bandwidth 

Most likely won't change anything


My favorite case is the mechify c and it is the best case and if you say otherwise you're lying 

 

@TofuHaroto so I can see your post

Yeah right didnt think of that i mean 40Gb/s is equal to 5GB/s which is better than pcie 3.0 4x lanes but but the graphics card still needs around 7GB/s so yeah i guess i need to find another solution thanks guys
