  1. Having watched LTT's nicehash vid, I thought I'd download it and set everything up just to see what my profitability would be on a dell laptop with a core i7 9750h and an RTX2060 laptop GPU. £2.45 or 0.06127 or thereabouts m/BTC per 24 hours. That's it - that's just not worth the effort.
  2. Well the manufactures site says its HDMI 2.1 so I'm going to believe that: https://www.gigabyte.com/uk/Laptop/AORUS-15P--RTX-30-Series/sp#sp
  3. This is silly Scan aren't the only ones mixing them up: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/gigabyte-aorus-15p-nvidia-rtx-3070-32gb-15.6-240hz-i7-10870h-gaming-laptop-lt-0ct-gi.html?gclid=Cj0KCQiA962BBhCzARIsAIpWEL2iWVRZT96a1zMoFNleStYrDwTVcETQnVH316kAr-FdUlHS3iVIzDgaAoLNEALw_wcB#tech_specs
  4. Cheers. Look what I've just found: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/156-gigabyte-aorus-15p-xc-fhd-240hz-ips-level-i7-10870h-32gb-ddr4-512gb-nvme-ssd-8gb-rtx-3070-win10 The specs page lists it as being HDMI 2.1 - the down side is its £1900 and its an Intel part. Slightly cheaper than the Dell and at least the Dell isn't the only one. I'll keep looking.
  5. I'd prefer to build a new desktop with a 3000 series GPU as that would be far more cost effective - think of the rig I can build with £1500+ but we all know that isn't happening any time soon due to global GPU shortages. How on earth did you get your 3080? I assume you pre-ordered it? I'm not paying the scalpers their inflated prices on eBay
  6. I'm not so sure about that - if you have a look here: https://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html You will see the 3070 is pretty much neck and neck with the 3080 It all depends on the TDP the manufacture allows, some are only allowing like 85w TDP for a 3070 which will hold it back massively, the one I linked to is the higher TDP which will perform much better. I think it will handle plenty of games at 4k60hz+ but obviously I will wait for full reviews before pulling the trigger
  7. Dude, this ain't my first rodeo lol... I was really excited about this laptop: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/156-asus-rog-strix-g15-g513qr-fhd-300hz-ryzen-7-5800h-16gb-ddr4-1tb-nvme-ssd-8gb-rtx-3070-win10-home Then I read the specs and its HDMI 2.0b So disappointing Buying a new laptop this time is going to be such a chore. Not only do I have to be careful about GPU TDP (the one in the link above is 130w I believe) now I have to research if it will use HDMI 2.1 as well? FML
  8. Ah so laptop OEMs are just choosing not to implement the new standard to cut costs. The Dell Alienware that has HDMI 2.1 is silly money. https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/gaming-and-games/alienware-m17-r4-gaming-laptop/spd/alienware-m17-r4-laptop#configurations_section
  9. You're talking about NVIDIA optimus where they use the integrated intel GPU for basic desktops tasks to save battery life? Yeah I know all about that - I also know if you hook a laptop up via HDMI or display port and close the laptop lid, it disables optimus completely, forcing the laptop to run off the NVIDIA GPU, you can see this in action by going to task manager>performance and the intel GPU listing will disappear. I'm asking more specifically about HDMI 2.1 and why it seems to be present on the desktop GPUs and not the laptop versions, at least not many yet anyw
  10. So I'm in the market for a new laptop equipped with one of the new RTX 3000 series cards. My issue is that to my understanding, desktop variants of the 3000 series GPUs all have HDMI 2.1 capability? I was under the impression this would be the same for Laptops so was looking forward to being able to hook my LG OLED up to my new laptop purchase at 4k120hz However, I've just seen that Dell Alienware is currently the ONLY laptop to support HDMI 2.1, all the others even with RTX 3000 series cards support the older HDMI 2.0b standard.... Anyone know
  11. 1. GPU 2. Extra 8GB ram 3. better PSU as I bet it's a pre built OEM?
  12. There you go then. Can't remember how many PCIe lanes b450 boards have but I'm sure PCIe lanes are your limiting factor here. If you have 2x NVMe drives installed they will be taking up 4 PCIe lanes each so that's 8 lanes just for your storage. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think b450 only has a total of 20 lanes? Not that it matters anyway, as others have said, it doesn't make much if any difference to performance.
  13. I'm thinking of buying this: https://www.dell.com/en-uk/work/shop/alienware-graphics-amplifier/apd/452-bbqn/pc-accessories?cjevent=f8edde71396211eb82ac00760a180512&dgc=CJ&publisherid=4493793&gacd=9684977-24628710-5750457-280362152-136708306&dgc=af&VEN1=14298868-7763369-16074382806034261398412021000008005&dclid=CIyQkZ7Ovu0CFffauwgdw7EPqQ and sticking my RTX 2080 Super (or a 3060ti if I can find one soon) in it and run it on my Dell G7 7790 that has an RTX 2060 My question is my laptop has a USB type C thunderbolt port - will this work
