Would you rather this setup? Or a laptop/desktop combo?

With my current, VERY powerful desktop setup being in shambles due to a broken 3080 and practically no option to replace that part -even after RMA- in the short term? I am seriously considering this. Except I can only find the laptop part and not the add-on.

I believe this kind of setup is a wonderful choice for not only high-end graphics but also normal ones like 3060. And the price will not be as frightening. Wondering if I can see such product soon.

ASUS sell this laptop without the eGPU. And it’s realtively affordable. You know the GPU price is insane nowadays.

You kept saying how cool it is, but all i got out of it was that it cannot be upgraded at all and it's not that cool. Other than 3080 is insane I didnt catch any positive during your review.. So is it cool or not? :D

The thing is, the base model without the GPU is also crazy expensive sporting only a 1650 Max-Q. Yes, you can choose between 5800HS (~$300 cheaper) or 5900HS but the ROG Strix have those two and at least a 3060 for roughly the same price.

I'll give you an example what that might be useful for. I do day trading. I need to travel and be able to run one or two or even three monitors that are 32-in. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to do this... (I might have to drop to two minimum 27 in). Monitors can be tricky because I might need to be buying them maybe where I go it's difficult to travel with... They break in suitcases w/o bubble wrap.

Cool ideas, but waste potential of integrate gpu and just too expensive. I’m more interest in g14 or g15 since i could put it on my backpack and game VR.

I don't get the point... Why choosing a 13 inch model paired with such a powerful GPU. Who want to play at this screen size ? This concept would be great with a cheaper laptop (let's say 900/1000$) + a cheaper GPU like the 3060. The 3070 is available but it still cost 500€ and you have to pay nearly 1500€ for this crappy laptop (gtx 1650, poor battery life, poor refresh rate)

the only part of this system that is valuable is totally ruined by the fact that it's proprietary. It only works with one particular build and you can't swap GPUs. This isn't much different than what razer or anyone else has done.

Great video thank you I've seen it for $2700 Do you know if you can just buy the GPU on is own That would be awesome

The most powerful laptops were never going to be suitable for all users. These fastest laptops below are high-powered machines that can cope with a lot of work thrown at them. They're ideal for creatives that work with big files, moving a lot of data around, and the price point reflects that. We’ve listed some of the most powerful laptops on the market today, but be warned, though, as these high performance laptops do come at a (high) price. However, our price comparison tool will help you save a decent amount of money. Click here>>> amzn.to/3830zTL pin.it/7DLpkeE

Are you able to make any comment about the relative noise levels of the zephyrus g15 and the flow at comparable levels of performance? Also, I read that the detached 3080 didn’t deliver the same degree of power as an integrated 3080. Was that your impression?

I just ordered one. I went with the 1080p panel for the battery life. I have the Acer predator 4k curved 34 inch monitor to enjoy the 4k output. For me it's the ultimate replacement for my current but dated desktop. I don't have to keep transferring between the two systems now. It's my work horse, my media tablet and my gaming rig. Both portable and super powerful. The spec should stay relevant for the next 5yrs easily. Wish the price was $1000 less!

This is the kind of innovation and competition I love to see because it pushes the tech forward. AMD have done a great job of waking up Intel. I'm excited to see how Intel is responding from pressure from AMD, Arm, Apple and Microsoft. I love Thunderbolt but Intel need the support of more than just Apple, they need AMD as well. Thunderbolt should switch to PCIe 6.0 to support eGPUs better.

Why in the world they put 1650MQ in there??? AMD already have pretty capable Vega 8 inside CPU. Less weight, more battery, less price. And if you need GPU power you still have external. It's so pity you didn't stress this thing. I guess because it's as bad as it should be with this kind a specs in this tiny case.

I'll might get the laptop only it's $1500 (1080p/16GB4266MHz/1TBssd/1650 GDDR6) 5900HS/5980HS Was thinking of xps 15 and its $1800 for same config i.e 8 core Intel and 1650ti.
Anarchy Månad sedan
According to my research The 4k version comes with 1TB/32GB/5980HS internals (Supernova Edition) and the FHD 120 hz is less powerful with the 5900HS and usually with 512GB/16GB. So I'd still get the 4k version for gaming... especially on external monitors.

I would really like one of those. I've been looking for a 2 in 1 with a 1xxx series gpu inside it to game lightly on, and only microsoft surface has something like that. I have the Surface Book 2, but I'm tired of the wonky change to tablet. So I wouldn't even need the external GPU, just the 1650 and 2 in 1 functionality sells it for me. It's pretty well priced if you don't want that, but the other features in one package.

Ahaha my friend annoyed me so much with "build you won desktop pc, it's soo much better". Glad I waited until I heard about the X13! That will blow him away, how much power it has while being so small and lightweight. Wonder how the X13 with the eGPU performs compared to the Asus Duo on the same external monitor. I think the Duo has a better CPU, but the 3080 from the X13 can use more watts and has a better air flow in tent mode. Although the Duo looks incredible, I go for the X13 as it will be my new Laptop that also replaces my desktop pc and tablet lol, so 3 in 1 and with peripherals the possibilities are enormous! Wish it had more ports and storage though. And even though it's expensive, it still saves money, since it can replace so much other devices and therefore also has a better impact on the environment.
