World's CRAZIEST 5GHz LAPTOP

Recommended Posts

So this thing will basically thermal throttle all the time.
Seems healthy...

Ermmmm, without the bottom casing, were they not suffocating the 2 fans? I mean, the fans were literally resting directly against the mat... 


Looking at my signature are we now? Well too bad there's nothing here...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What? As I said, there seriously is nothing here :)

Mr.Meerkat good point! But Blowie /Delta Airways propeller doohickey must have offset any airflow losses there and then some. 

 

4.3GHZ on all 6 cores at stock overclocked config? That's not bad. What about a thin laptop like a Gigabyte Aero 15x with the 8750h 6 core, maybe 3.2GHZ on all cores sustained?

I like that the Extreme CPU won't throttle at 90C like the regular 6-core (8th gen) laptop CPUs.. 90C is too soon. My 9 year old X9100 Extreme C2D laptop CPU doesn't throttle until 104C. 

Worth it? Maybe. If the screen has great brightness for outdoor usage, which addresses the weakness in many gaming laptops vs say Apple. Would lean me from the heavy-arse weight aspect and small battery. 

But really, eh maybe not. 6-core i7/i9s throttle on laptops.

 

Great video great enthusiasm

 

EDIT: What if instead it had a 1070 and had a few more heatpipes from the GPU loop shared with the CPU? I suppose in stock config it can handle 4.8GHZ on 1 or 2 cores all day which accounts for most productivity boosts. Oh, the G703GS version has a 1070. Bet thermal system is identical tho.

Rewind exactly 10 years and you will get a Toshiba Qosmio X305 17 inch laptop (which I own) that was around 2 inches thick too. Or go back six years to find the Alienware M18x that was an even bigger behemoth. You could also point fingers at the more recent Acer Predator X21, but that for a better term was just an overpriced and overinflated POS given Acer's reputation for hideous QC and reliability.

 

How is it that it has taken THIS MUCH TIME for manufacturers to wake up and realize that THIN MEANS COMPROMISE??? There are customers out there that DON'T drink the Apple Kool Aid - people who want their pizza deep dish instead of thin crust, and people who expect to sit down with a smartphone in their back pants pocket AND NOT HAVE IT BEND.

 

5 Jiggahertz in a laptop is a nice clickbait title to get views, yeah, but it's not the thing that should be getting people excited when you are still trading blows between thermals and current. Real world use is still a long way off, and there are other things that could be improved with a thicker chassis besides bare CPU speed...

 

...like a proper 20 inch 4K laptop for example that I am still waiting for.

 

Clevo is also out there making some seriously high end gear too, but I just cannot stand their keyboards. I'll give kudos to Asus for building this though, especially since Toshiba has dropped out of the game entirely and Dell has since dropped the ball with Alienware as well.

 

BTW: GG and DD are a guys best friend :P ( o ) ( o )

Should have put the back of the display on the desk so that the motherboard is vertical and pointed the fans at the CPU area.

 

That VRM is probably struggling.

 

Or replaced the blowers entirely with those fans. Have them blow through the heatsink instead.

The laptop is thermal throttling? No wonder, you have the fans flat to the table.

 

Put a wallet or some lego weels between the laptop and table, to give it a better chance. Please.

I'm curious what kind of thermals it would get if they repasted it.

Hey people, since it takes a heavy laptop to be able to get any decent sustained turbo speeds out of the i9 chip, why does Asus think it's not tricking people by putting in the same CPU in the Zenbook Pro 15 at 4 pounds??? I hope Linus reviews 1.

after they replaced the factory thermal compound with liquid metal, they didn't put back the base. Wouldn't this mean that the fans would be suffocated because the base has case feats which would lift the fan of the table?

Not necessarily depending on the design 

 

In most cases, the wide-open exposure actually improves breathability because laptop vents are generally tiny, as long as nothing soft gets in the way 

 

On my ASUS GL502 for example, removing the bottom cover gives an up to 10-degree difference in load temps.

I know right? They just let it sit flat.

"Oh, and now it thermal throttles." No shit sherlock, of course it thermal throttles with its fans blocked.

Not only does it look like the laptop is flat agains the table, it also looks like the computer is flat against an anti-static rubber mat.

But it also thermal throttled during their baseline tests, don't forget that's what most users will be experiencing. Not many people are going to mess with clocks and voltages.

I usually would say that it's the fault of the manufacturer of the laptop, but tbh this cpu kicks out such a stupid amount of heat i'm pointing at intel for this one.

Who thinks a cpu that can kick out up to 160W of heat by default belongs in a laptop?!

Far to expensive. I don't see how they would sell a lot of these. Very cool product though. There are way better bang for buck laptops out there.

Im thinking Univesrities might buy them for their PhD student who need the computing power but also have to be on the move a lot and can't lug around a ultra big rig everywhere
