Samsung Odyssey Notebook
Intel i7-8750H, RTX 2080, 144Hz G-Sync display with a new cooling technology dubbed penta-pipe (usually there are 3-4 heatpipes so a 5th will definitely help if the 2080 is being utilized) all in a thin package that’s only 19.9mm thin. This one certainly checks the boxes so we will see how Samsung does with it’s first foray into a gaming laptop.
Razer Blade 15
The chassis was made a little more edgy in 2018 and impressively thin at 17.8mm, the newest Blade from Razer will now come with the new RTX series of cards and start with a 2060, followed by a 2070 Max-Q and 2080 Max-Q. I am keen to see if their new Vapor Chamber cooling will keep up with the thermal demands. Beautiful design with a 144Hz G-Sync display and impressive internals will make this a laptop the gaming-Windows-Macbook, including the price.
Acer Predator Triton 900
An interesting floating Ezel Aero Hinge that keeps it separate from the base is a novel idea that may allow for better thermals and multiple configurations. Why you would use it as a tablet is beyong me given it’s size and it does not come cheap at $4,000 USD.
Acer Predator Triton 500
More reasonable in terms of price and more traditional in design, this 17.8mm laptop ticks all the right boxes in terms of a thin gaming laptop. i7-8750H and RTX 2080 Max-Q will make this one compete against the top-tier Razer Blade 15.
