i9-9900K for laptop? Heating issues???
Egypt Egyptian_vegan 
I'm considering right now between 2 laptops on the same price range: One is i7-9750H + RTX 2080 for roughly 3000 euros and one is i9-9900K + RTX 2060 for the same price. I play mostly only CS:GO so I need as high fps as possible (unfortunately, can only have laptop for private reason...). So do you guys think a laptop can handle i9-9900K without thermal throttling? I have heard Alienwar51M has the same specs and managed well? Or maybe I should just pick the safe card with i7-9750H but it's maybe not so good for CS:GO :( Note: both of the laptops has 17 inch screen + 144 hz + Gsync so that is not the issues.

It's still not really convenient for travel, he can still use the laptop as a portable desktop and plug everything into it, just the upgradability and thermals are not the best. The price you pay for convenience

Dude have you seen the sentry cases or the fractal node case. You can fit that into a backpack np. Otherwise if you need it so much dont spend 3k on a laptop. Buy a cheaper one which will get the job done in cs.

240 hz 3k euro okey but 144 hz 3k euro I m sorry mam.
2019-09-22 23:29
Bruh but why laptop for 3k FOR CS???
2019-09-22 23:31
Can't have desktop at "home". I'm on the move all the time so I have to bring it with me.
2019-09-22 23:35
I mean you dont even need a setup that expensive for cs

i9 is overkill even for a gaming PC, not just laptop. The graphics card is more important. 1000% You'll get more fps with the 2080 as well. It's a no brainer
2019-09-22 23:30
for CS:GO which utilizes high performances of a single CPU core? Are you sure that it needs that much of GPU ? I thought it's even enough with a GTX 1060?

It doesn't need either. You can get 200+ fps with an i5 and a 1060. But you're asking between those 2 choices, and the 2080 choice is much better. Yes, even for csgo
2019-09-22 23:36
so how about i7-9750H performance for CS:GO? It will surely give stable 300 fps?
2019-09-22 23:37
Surely it will. GPU > CPU even for CS:GO for these CPUs.

how exactly is 2080 better than 2060 for csgo?

Please tell me this is a joke. Alright. Although CS:GO is more dependant on CPU performance (single thread performance to be more specific) than mos games, it is still bound by GPU performance more. As such, a RTX 2080 will provide more fps as the more powerful card from the duo. The 2060 is more than sufficient for CS:GO, but if gaming is his priority, the i7-9750H + RTX2080 combo is the better choice here.
2019-09-24 09:50
we're talking about csgo here not gaming in general, its obvious that 2080 is better in general, but there will be literally 0 difference in fps in csgo between 2080 and 2060

A) gpucheck.com/compare-game-gpu/counter-st.. B) Learn how to use the word 'literally' properly. This is not meant as an insult, way too many people canibalize this word and it's annoying. Please stop
2019-09-24 10:10
'virtually no difference' would be the correct phrase

Well that depends. If you have the game locked at 300fps for stability reasons or otherwise, then there is virtually no difference as they will both achieve the 300 with no problems. If we're talking unlocked fps, it's a bit more individual, whether you see the difference or not. The difference would be cca 50-ish fps between the cards..
2019-09-24 10:28
"literally" was in this case a play on words, im surprised you haven't caught that with ur sublime language perception, unless you really believed that i thought that the framerate will be the same in both cases, as in, not even 1 fps difference; but okay, my bad, i used "literally" incorrectly, i apologize, so let me rephrase that - there is pretty much no difference the benchmark u provided is of no use, who cares about the max amount of fps u get, not to mention we are not told under my circumstances was this benchmark executed(empty server or not, etc), what matters is the minimum framerate you get under stress of some kind(with lots of players in one place, smokes or areas of maps with worse optimalization) so the conclusion is, okay, there is a difference on paper, but in reality it's negligible and getting 2080 over 2060 purely for csgo is not worth it

Mate, if you don't want people to take you literally, don't use the word literally. Simple as that. I assume the benchmark shows you the average framerates, not the maximum ones (as most benchmark graphs do btw). About the specific situation/map/playercount, I don;t know, could be the benchmark mapp for all I know. BUT, with bothGPUs using the same architecture but the 2080 having more cuda cores, more VRAM, wider bus and thus more throughput and hiher clockspeeds, it would stand to reason that it's lowest 0.1% would still be better than the 2060's, assuming it's properly cooled. The cooling is the most challenging part of both rigs, one having a 2080 and the other a desktop 9700k. evens the odds I'd say. Both laptops are overkill for csgo, you can do well enough with an i5 and a 1050ti, especially if you play on lower resolutions. So yes, a 2080 alone is not worth it for only csgo, but at the same pricepoint, I would definitely take the 9750H/2080 combo over the 9700k/2060 for any game, even csgo. If we were talking about productivity and more heavily threaded applications, then I'd probably go with the 9700k, but again, it all depends on the scenario. OP asked which of the two laptop configs he presented would giive him a higher framerate in csgo, I answered that question.
2019-09-24 11:11
accualy I think that the CPU i more important for csgo than the graphic card, but however both of those are overkill ....... definetly great fps on both gl
2019-09-24 09:53
get the one with the 2080, cpu is plenty powerful and the 2080 is far better then the 2060

So do you guys think a laptop can handle i9-9900K without thermal throttling? I have heard Alienwar51M has the same specs and managed well? probably not, check linus tech tips maybe for some laptops they review them very often. He personally has the Razer Blade (latest) which he thinks is the best laptop
2019-09-22 23:31
But how about Razer Blade for CS:GO? It will surely give 300 fps? Sadly I can't go for desktop PCs , would have been much easier :(

1. What are the laptops, specifically? I want to consider the other specifications. 2. The wattage needed by both laptops seem to even out, so that seems to be a non-issue. 3. Are you sure you plan on sticking to CS:GO? Because the 9900k laptop will work better than the 9750H (in a closed system), but the 2080 will take longer to be outdated than the 2060 if you plan to play other titles.
2019-09-22 23:57
1. The first laptop is Lenovo Y-740 (the one with highest specs I suppose: i7-9750H + RTX 2080 + 32 GB RAM). The second laptop is a customized laptop from "PCspecialist" and with the specs of i9-9900K + RTX 2080 (if you need to since it reaches that far but for a bit higher price). The model is called: "17,3" Octane VI". 3. The 9900K will not be throttling in a laptop? If it doesn't then 9900K is much better than 9750H And there are Thunderbolts on both laptops so I can always upgrade in the future.

The first one straightforward (and also only *$2000* in the US) but I can't really evaluate the second one because their are so many customization options. Just don't get less than 16GB of RAM (8GB if you REALLY THINK YOU WILL ONLY REALLY PLAY CS:GO, but I wouldn't risk it)
2019-09-23 00:18
The second one, I was customize it to 64 GB RAM and that was for 3000 euros. But yeah we have more expensive computers here in Europe than USA due to tax I guess.
2019-09-23 00:15
have you ever heard about eGPU? Just buy good CPU & 144hz & good RGB laptop. And buy external GPU case(eGPU) and GPU. Done. You saved tons of money. Btw, you can't go thin laptop for i9-9xxx. It'll be super hot.
