I am intrigued with Ryzen laptops being released with top of the line Nvidia GPU (or ANY top of the line GPU) as I don’t think any have existed sporting anything better than a 2060...

This can only be good news for consumers.
It's indeed going to be a squid surprise 👍

Truth. After tons of research when I decided to pull the trigger on my laptop I already knew exactly what I wanted and from who. I went to MSIs site and it was on sale for 3 days at $850 off what I was expecting to pay. Pure luck I guess.

Be it a low end light work laptop or a top end desktop replacement research is a must.

Always loved the titan GT76.....could never find it anywhere below $4299.
so if you dont mind, what was your final cost, +tax.
BTW great find, I looked at the $3000+ razer, but liked the heat pipes configurtion and roomy expanse inside the titan better....congrats

It was listed at $4400 (in May 2019 right after release) and to be honest, that's what I was expecting to pay. It was purely a right place at the right time kind of thing that it was on sale for Memorial Day weekend. The final price after tax was a hair over $3800.

P.s............make sure you get that power brick adapter
Thing is there really aren't any better adapters for the Titan series that I know of. They use 2, 230 watt (250 peak) power bricks that break down to a single plug.

Did you get one? If so how do you like Optimus? It was a big factor for me because I use mine away from a plug quite often. It does hurt gaming performance. I get 24,094 in Firstrike on the laptop display but 26,855 with an external monitor which runs right off the 2080. But I get 5 1\2 hours on battery.

Yeah the Optimus debate rages on which is surprising really. It is a "get it if you need it" thing. For me it was a perfect fit because of how often I am away from a wall plug.

No not yet. I'm still trying to finish the latest Ghost Recon without chucking up my dinner. Its not easy.
5.5 hrs...amazing
Yeah I just make sure Optimus has me on the iGPU, set my monitor brightness to 75%, CPU limit to 45 watts and even with very light encoding\editing I get 5-6 hours on battery. It is a 90 Wh battery.
have fun.
Whats life without it?!
