Need laptop advice 2080ti
I need a portable computer, I am going to take the 2080ti out of my desktop and use it as an egpu. I bought a razer core x.
I want a laptop with the following specs
i7 10875H (or better I9 10980HK)
16GB RAM (or better 32gb+)
1080p 144hz display or Oled 4k I haven't decided
17" screen but I would consider 15"
I am going to install my own ssd so ssd doesn't matter.
Gpu doesn't matter obviously.
Needs to have thunderbolt 3 obviously
Budget $1000-$2000 depending on specs
So far the best I have found is gigabyte Aero 17 / gigabyte aorus 17 / msi creator 17.
@brendon_7358, I've seen the Gigabyte Aero OLED laptops at CES20 and they are very nice. The only downside is that most of the H-CPU laptops route their Thunderbolt 3 connection through the PCH rather than direct attachment to the CPU. If you would consider a U-CPU laptop, take a look at LG Gram 17 with i7-1065G7. Regardless of the host laptop you decide to go with, it's best not to run eGPU loopback to accelerate the laptop display. Gaming through an external monitor is better.
