If you look at a few tech channel guys around youtube you will now find them mentioning 6 to 7 lbs laptops as super heavy and huge when in weight they are below former 15" DTRs and in volume they are probably smaller, too. Before it was important to have a powerful laptop now it is about holding it with one hand apparently, no idea what this is all about: So not much is coming out of the capability to build a really good 8 to 9 lbs DTR with a vapor chamber and possibly water cooling when people mainly buy 14" and therefore companies innovate in those market segments? I will give it to MSI that they are the only company that still has good performance and most if not all DTR features in a less gamey chassis with the GT77 but I would much have preferred a GT88 with a socketed CPU now that socketed GPUs are obviously off the table and most of all with a bigger than 250W combined power limit - looks like this is a new invisible barrier nobody dares to cross. Question is how much of a benefit would it be to even make one to justify the profit margins. Pcs aren't cars where you can make unobtainable halo cars. Plus there would have to be a factor that isn't just benchmarks. Die size is also a thing. If it was still 14nm+ 12nm. It would be easier to cool with what we have today. But with larger thermal density. Uhh I don't know. Plus liquid cooling won't be done because it's a huge liability. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
