Hi,

in a video (below) an Alienware rep mentions they are exploring options for a gtx1070 in the AW13.

See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4b4yzYOzlQ at 4:10.

Has anyone heard or read something about this?

Any ideas if G sync would be possibility with that samsung 13" oled panel?

The AW13 oled sounds great for a portable device but I'm wondering if the gtx1060 without gsync will bother me.

Thanks for any input ;-)

PS I would use it for movies, civ6 & Battlefield 1.

1) first hearing about it.

2) GSYNC?
Almost certainly with all the more expensive laptops with good NVidia GPU.

*But keep in mind the game must run below the screen refresh (some laptops with GSYNC are 75Hz, some 60Hz) whether you cap it yourself or the game just runs at that lower FPS. If the GPU can output more than 60FPS to a 60Hz screen then GSYNC is not enabled. It defaults to your choice of VSYNC ON or VSYNC OFF (VSYNC ON adds lag, VSYNC OFF adds screen tear).

Other:
- 13" is pretty small to be gaming on (and if you use an external monitor it would have to be a GSYNC monitor to get GSYNC capability)

- "GTX1060 without GSYNC will bother me" - well, GSYNC is better provided you are actually using it. It really does make a huge difference. In fact, I would cap some games to 40FPS using NVInspector, GeForce Experience (only detected games) or some other method. That reduces fan noise, increases battery life and is still pretty smooth due to GSYNC being enabled

GSYNC and laptops.
Desktop monitors have a physical GSYNC MODULE in them. Laptops can avoid this because NVidia knows the details of the screen they are working with.

GSYNC works because the monitor only draws a new frame when the GPU sends it one. This creates a problem with the pixels changing color correctly, so again you have to know details about the screen (LCD panel).

So there's no added cost due to physical hardware, just some validation cost from NVidia. Because GSYNC is a selling point it's a good idea to include it in the more expensive laptops (with NVidia GPU's) but that doesn't mean a company will do so.

Capping to 40fps to reduce fan noise sound like a nice idea ...
I know Gsync improves the experience in lower fps a lot.
This is why I'm hoping a 1060 + Gsync or a 1070 would be great.
I really love amoled, and this is the only oled gaming laptop on the market that I know of so I guess I'll keep my fingers crossed ...

Have you tried to game on a 13" laptop before? It's freaking tiny.

CIV6 might be practically unplayable with such tiny text.
