I played around with a ROG G701 some time back, and it had a i7 7820HK inside. Couldn't really push it far, thermally limited. Do you think overclockable CPUs in laptops are relevant, or just a useless feature and Turbo Boost is more than enough, especially considering the thermal limits of most gaming laptops? Or would you prefer a full desktop CPU inside instead of these mobile overclockable CPUs? brows.gif

Defeats the purpose of having a mobile computing unit in the first place.

If the overclock is just going be a few hundred Mhz then it doesn't do much. If you can push it a lot then it's going to drain battery more and generate more heat.

Not really. I think if there was something like the GX800 (maybe if it was lighter) that can dock and game hard with an overclock, then undock to go out, seems like a really good system.

The GX800 is among the many gargantuan notebooks that defeat the purpose of being a mobile computing unit. tongue.gif

portable while having a good battery life.

After overclocking really got higher fps. Seems like stock CPU clocks are holding back the GTX 1080 SLI inside. I have encountered a similar effect with i7 6820HK and 980M too

Of course you would only overclock when connected to a power source. What do you mean you don't see a significant result? hmm.gif
