  1. does that means PSUs at higher tier in the list have good caps in general, even though some of them don't have Japanese caps?
  2. Is 'Japanese caps better than Chinese/Taiwanese caps' still a thing?
  3. Clevo already selling RTX3060 laptops in China and some people had received it. Reviews are out before NDA lol.


    According to testing, 3060 mobile 80w performs similarly to 2070S mobile (115w). However, the model itself (NH77) don't have good GPU thermal and official driver isn't out yet. Also no dedicated GPU mode. So I expect 3060M 80w to be close to 2060S desktop performance. Which is somewhat impressive.


    Can't wait to see how 115w 3060M performs in a decently cooled laptop.

    1. AluminiumTech


      I don’t see how it’s impressive but maybe that’s just me. 3060 is big disappointment, especially with only having 6GB VRAM on mobile and being only 2070 Super performance for $100-200 less.


      On mobile I can’t recommend anything below the 3070 mobile because at least that has 8GB VRAM and the 3080 mobile is a no-go because of it being a desktop 3070 chip and being false advertising.

    2. genexis_x


      Yeah the VRAM is a bummer. Should release a 12GB variant also.


      The price reduction is quite big. Maybe not as big in your country but here we can save around $400 from 2070S to 3060 (laptop).


      I can't recommend 3070 and 3080 mobile though lol. 3070 having 3060Ti specs while 3080 having 3070 specs. Consumers don't get what they pay.

  4. MSI sell low end gaming laptop at mid range price. Mid range laptop at high end price. Seriously. No one should be looking at their gaming laptops now. It's not appealing anymore.

    1. DriftMan


      Their Gx66 and Gx76 lines are all fucked up. Premium price for mid range hardware is just a no-no.

    2. ProjectBox153


      I have one of their gaming laptops. I got it for free after it had sat out in the rain for a couple weeks. Other than that one I haven't even looked at their laptop lineup. 

    3. Levent


      MSI loves charging for gaming rice they love to put in their shit. I personally never was a fan.

    Is it just me or this looks great. 4 side thin bezels. White chassis.

      if the keyboard was RGB programmable then I could live with it. I happen to like Black more as a colour for laptops though.

    3. Moonzy


      cant wait to turn it grey in my hands!


      ngl it looks sleek, but i sure wish more laptops have dedicated volume and mute keys, im too used to having those

    4. TopHatProductions115


      @Moonzyprobably has moon dust for hands >:3

  6. 3060 mobile is about $200 more expensive than 2060 mobile it seems...

    1. DriftMan


      And the RTX 2060 is still expensive as hell after 2 years, the GTX 1650 pushed the GTX 1660/Ti price, and that pushed the 2060 price...

    2. genexis_x


      hopefully it's just a supply/price issue

    3. TopHatProductions115


      Stuck on Pascal as a result. Looks like RTX is still gonna be expensive after all this waiting.


      I should buy a Titan V for the lolz one day...

  7. 5600U and 5800U are Zen3, not rebrand No prob. I'll reply with some options later when I have the time.
  8. I'm too lazy to read the full version so I'll just reply these 1. What kind of performance you prioritize? Single core? Multi core? GPU? 2. For now it's mixed. Many models are out of stock, and Ryzen 5000 is coming 3. It depends on your usage. Also how to take care of the laptop since laptop lifespan is generally 3-5 yrs IMO Laptop CPU has made a performance leap thanks to Ryzen 4000 so you don't have to worry about that. Though every laptop model is configured differently, you will get perf difference in 2 different laptops with same specs Also, are you
  9. Asus new gaming laptops have some nice upgrades. Looks appealing. Hopefully they can deliver decent thermals and provide better QC+reliability.

    1. TheDankKoosh


      I wouldn't count on it, their brand image and gamer aesthetic are much more valuable to them compared to spending the R&D money to design a reliable, and cool system, they'd rather try to scam people with their warranty and returns department.

    2. genexis_x


      yeah reliability and aftersales still sucks

    3. soldier_ph


      Yeah the TUF Gaming Models with 4000 Mobile Series were a complete disaster, good thing I didn't buy one before proper reviews came out.

  10. Honestly Intel should name TGL-35 like this:

    i7-11375H: i3-11375H
    i7-11370H: i3-11370H
    i5-11300H: i3-11300H

    But it's Intel. Marketing is way more important.

    1. ProjectBox153


      At this point I don't even keep up with Intel's naming anymore. It's so odd. 

  11. FIVR Control is locked. Did you update BIOS recently?

    2. genexis_x


      It's a TGL-U with 35w TDP. Nothing special. i3 spec branded as i5 and i7.
