      I'm looking for this laptop with the same components (360hz, 3080ti, i9 12900hk) but can't find one to pre order. There is an i7 alder lake instead of i9 alder lake. Would there be a big difference between the two?

    I was sceptical, but it seems like Intel really did a great job at taming the 12th gen's power hungry chips for mobile platforms! Amazing to see the competition between team Blue and team Red back on fire. Can't wait to see what AMD's response is!

      @Hi, 1626 there is one thing called "heat conductivity"

    • ZIHE Chen
      ZIHE Chen 2 months ago

      @Hi, 1626 amd is hot as fk even at 35w is because amd has heat transfering issue. The heat generated by the die can't get out of the case fast enough. So it stays in the case and easily reach to 90c. Intel have no issue on heat transfering. So if the same amount of heat generated on both chip Intel will be like 20c cooler. Time to learn physics bich.

    I bought last year's GE76 cuz of your review (and the semiconductor shortage meant it was the only premium laptop realistically available to me!). Despite costing the price of a small car for all the bells n whistles, I love it. It's beautiful, it's weighty (why I think that's a good thing, I don't know), the 4K display doesn't disappoint, and it simply doesn't flinch for my needs. I especially agree with you on Balanced mode, it's so quiet for what it does.
    I can't afford to upgrade this year, but I love that they (Intel, MSI, Nvidia) take my dollars and keep innovating, and these kinds of generational leaps make me really hopeful for the power of all kinds of mobile devices in the future.

    I'm glad that AMD's and Apple's innovations are keeping Intel on their toes. In their monopoly, CPUs like these would hit the market in late 2020s. Still, an ARM future awaits. PC's will get much faster yet will be less customizable, I'm afraid

    • EmissaryGW2
      EmissaryGW2 Month ago

      @BlackSn0wz yeah, fair enough. I'd say that I have no issue leaving my windows pc running for weeks too, except that it reboots itself periodically to install updates so it probably doesn't actually run for weeks 😅
      tbh though, my main experience with Linux was a terrible mess of little things not quite working right and spending months googling how people fixed similar issues, then writing scripts and tweaking configs to try and get things running smoothly. It was fun for me and I learned a lot about OS internals, but in the end decided I had better things to do with my time.

    • BlackSn0wz
      BlackSn0wz Month ago

      @EmissaryGW2 I agree, but that's what I meant by "inherently more stable". Apple positioned themselves and their products in a way where they have total control over the hardware that their systems run on. Microsoft made Windows an open platform in terms of hardware, Apple chose to make theirs closed, they knew the pros and cons, one of the inherent pros of a closed platform when done correctly is reliability. From a PC enthusiast perspective this is mostly a con, but from a productivity perspective this is why Mac OS is more stable. You can also use Mac or Linux for weeks without restarting it, try using Windows as a server and you'll see what I mean lol. This is anecdotal, but every windows system I've ever owned has had more issues with stability than Mac OS, and anytime I've lost progress for work/school it's been on Windows. My mac experience hasn't been error free, but I've encountered fewer critical errors.
      I dislike both companies equally FYI
      I've never tried Hackintosh but I can imagine it would be a driver nightmare, stars would need to align in several galaxies at once for it to be a comparable experience to a Mac since you have to trick the operating system, you can't use Nvidia, some CPU's may not be supported, and they're now using ARM. Thought about doing a KVM but getting Linux GPU drivers to cooperate was hard enough by itself.

    • EmissaryGW2
      EmissaryGW2 Month ago

      @BlackSn0wz As far as I can tell, Mac OS isn't inherently more stable than Windows. It's just that stability is 99% based on driver quality. Apple has a big advantage there from the fact that (a) only macs run mac OS, so there's a very small number of drivers that need to 'work well' to get a polished experience; and (b) they have so much volume that when they find a driver issue in QC, they can twist arms to get the issues fixed for all the components they use. I used to run mac OS on non-apple hardware, and let me tell you - it was not stable, it was not polished, things did not 'just work' 😅

    • EmissaryGW2
      EmissaryGW2 Month ago

      ARM has the benefit of being simple and lean (because it's new and has no legacy to support), which makes it easy to do fast/efficiently. x86 has the benefit of an insanely huge ecosystem that 'just works' as long as you stay on x86. Honestly Apple is probably the only company that has a chance of making ARM mainstream enough to one day make x86 go away. But as noted, x86 manufacturers are doing their best now to try and cut off the junk holding it back and close the gap with ARM.

    So even though AMD Zen 3+ is coming out on TSMC N6P, is going to clock faster, and AMD is saying it has 1.3X the performance of Zen 3, which is 30%, and the APUs are no longer old GCN and are now RDNA 2, just hand the win over to Intel. Maybe for the high end part, but I watched the review with the high end part which also has the 3080 Ti, and the amount of gaming improvement looks like the difference of last year's 3080 and this year's 3080 Ti, meaning it didn't look any better than Tiger Lake really.
    I'm thinking Zen 3+ when paired with a 3080 Ti is going to look about the same in gaming.

    Damn the cinebench score only drops by 10% when you drop the wattage from 120 to 70. 90% performance for ONLY 60% power, i think the standard performance numbers should be quoted when power is around our list than 70W. Using power no. above that could be used to make these sound much more power hungry than they can be. Clearly 75W is point of efficiency for these.

    Yeah, Intel did an awesome job fitting a CPU into a laptop that consumes more power than a desktop CPU.
    It's all about the numbers, right? Noone is going to talk about this being a portable device that consumes more power and generates more heat than most desktops?
    You gonna argue this is a desktop replacement device so battery doesn't matter as much? Sure, cause I am going to work or game with 300W under my palms and still being comfortable with the fans struggling to keep it under 100 celsius.

      @Estiennè Taylor I may understand you with the notch as it is a thing of personal taste, but the M1 chips are far from „phone processors“. Their performance (especially for the wattage) is no joke. The M1 MacBook Air when it released was competitive with 13“/14“ gaming laptops and laptops more than twice it’s price tag. The M1 pro/max are competitive in their price ranges while using as much power in total other laptops used for one component alone.
      And don‘t underestimate „phone processors“ too, as high end phone processors are probably as performant as i5 chips maybe.

    Quite an informative review, I am looking forward to the performance of Intel's 12 Generation laptop chips in a thinner chassis, in particular the Dell XPS 15 and 17 inch models. I would like to see what thermal cooling solution Dell implements with the higher specification 12th Generation chips, hopefully, they do not rely on aggressive thermal throttling.

    • EmissaryGW2
      EmissaryGW2 Month ago

      They do aggressively limit TGP to both CPU and GPU. IMO this is a better tradeoff for most people compared to the older 9560 where they just let it run at max power until it hits a brick wall and throttles down to 10% clock speeds and the whole system starts to stutter. On the other hand, I was able to stop the throttling on my 9560 by a combination of cutting holes in the bottom shielding, getting a laptop cooling pad, and buying a portable AC to bring the room temperature down. So I guess technically I have the 'best of both worlds' 🤣 (edit: although yes, I'd rather they just give it adequate cooling in the first place)

    I'm very interested in this machine but can you please help me with which screen would be best in your opinion the 240/360hz or the 120hz 4K? I like brightness and colors if that can point you in what I need.
    Thank you.

    This multi core boost won't transform to gaming performance uplift as much. They uses only 6 big cores instead 8, like in desktop.

    would be so great if you could make a comparison among the 2022 models (asus, alienware, lenovo, msi...)which are all equiped with the new generation intel processor. I'm looking to choose one but is soooo hard😂

    I used to have an MSI Laptop. It was great specs at a good price. Exactly what I wanted, but it never felt that greatly crafted, and I don't mean physically. It felt like a bunch of third party stuff that never integrated properly. Everytime windows updated half of it would stop working and you'd have to wait for new drivers to become available. Sometimes the subwoofer just wouldn't work. It just never felt like a complete package.

      @Post Rock Mixes wow. I remember before I bought my last laptop, thinking MSI might be a good way to go as an "enthusiast brand". Ended up getting an XPS 15 instead. Sounds like I made a good choice 😅

      This omg. I went from an Asus G75 to an MSI thinking they were just competitors and all that would change would be the brand. Holy. fuck. Was I wrong. A massive downgrade in everything but the hardware itself. I shouldn't have skimped out $100 for a sale.

    Apparently the new Ryzen 6000 CPU completely obliterates the 12th gen intels in terms of performance per watt, which is insane, and matters a lot for every gaming or content editing laptop. Every time you think intel is back on top AMD pulls another beast out of the closet lol.
    I hope they keep it coming, this competition is exactly what we need.

    It better run better than my 1150€ desktop. The thing costs 5400€ here. I also highly doubt it's 5x faster than my current setup so the value for money is awful.

    This is excellent. Looking forward to seeing what this looks like at 1440P and 4K. I was not expecting a 20% bump vs. prior 3080s.
    But now for that pricing...

      @Green Block Tru dat. I got a rog Strix with a 5900hx + 3050 ti for about $1200 USD, and a 5800h + 3060 was $1400

    • Alien Gurke
      Alien Gurke 3 months ago +1

      @Green Block For that money u could build such a nice desktop PC. In terms of price-performance ratio, there are significantly cheaper alternatives that are weaker but can still keep up with gaming PCs in terms of performance.
      So if u need like just a gaming pc to handle latest games i wouldnt recommend it, cause u can get powerful laptop and a powerful destop for $4000.
      Its only a thing if u really need the most powerful laptop and u dont care price-performance ratio 'cause u can afford it.

    • Alien Gurke
      Alien Gurke 3 months ago +3

      ye for the price u can get like 3 Lenovo Legion 5 with R7 5800H and RTX 3070, which is performing only like 40% worse than these new MSI high end one.
      I have one and I can say for the price its more than awesome and u wont actually need anything up such specs rn to play games with high and ultra settings.

      @Animaster laptops don’t really get scalped if ever. Manage to get the 15 inch (rtx3070) version of this laptop last year at release for msrp. Either way, $4000 is for the top of the line configuration, the i7 version will probably be $2000-$2500. Still a lot I know.

    I have a MacBook Air its most likely faster then your desktop since it has the highest single core of any laptop still matching the 5950x desktop chip for single core and 3600 for multi while having fewer cores and no hyper threading windows pcs have to address the power throttling issues when you unplug them from the wall and there performance tanks so hard

    Regarding the Blender Benchmark on MB Pro: almost guaranteed you got numbers from the emulated version. The new native version (alpha version) is way more faster.
    And the Cinebench score seems also to be too low.
    Overall: this system consumes so much power. Ridiculous much…

    I get that comparing MacBooks with Windows machines is more apples to apples by comparing Premier Pro performance, but I think it’s worth mentioning that Final Cut Pro gives a massive performance bump on a Mac. For a lot of users, using Premier Pro for a comparison is akin to using a benchmarking tool because it doesn’t reflect the end performance that you can get by choosing the fastest software available on each system.
