without docking station / with docking station

Fire Strike: 4648 / 10342
3D Mark Sky Diver: 6400 / 26610
3D Mark 11 extreme settings: 2561 / 5620
Catzilla @ FHD: 4264 / 13557

GPU peaked 58-60 C with the docking station.
No information about temperature without the docking station.

What do you think?

Though I was excited about this model, the number doesn't seem to be good at all. without docking station G751JY performs way better, with a docking station there is less than 20% gain in performance compared to G751JY.
And that is what NVida stated a year ago GTX 980m performs 20% less the GTX 980.

It seems GX700 makes sense only if you have a pile of docking stations (one at home, one at work, one at school, ...), which is pointless, unless you really hate keeping multiple desktop pcs interconnected and updated. Without counting we don't know if they will sell docking stations without notebook (do you remember the G751 M.2 SSD adapter?).

I think availability of UHD displays is low, so no G752 UHD and probably no GX700 UHD, resulting in an increase in performance. FHD/UHD machines, with the same hardware, can help to extrapolate the increase in performance.

I was thinking the G752VY could be a flop, because of the GTX 980 notebooks, but the immobility of GX700 will not affect G752VY sales (unlike 980 MSI and CLEVO).

thank you for finding the video with English sub titles and posting them

A light bulbs goes off in a designers head and they came up with this thing...Will that even fit on a standard 21"-24" deep counter top with room for forearm rest?

I applaud innovation and design challenges and this set up certainly wins the "I did it cause I could" award. From a practical standpoint do they really expect to sell a lot of these to the general public?
Especially with the price being what it is.

All the reviewers sites look at this set up with question-marks going on in little bubbles over their heads. Some of them even strain at writing a wait and see approach to this, some of them think that its an alien(ware) parasite attaching itself to the back of an otherwise nice looking gaming machine.

I'm sure this setup will wow the specs off other systems but it has such a limited market it has to be a promotion gimmick to bring attention to the brand.

No thanks...better wait for the successor of the 980m next year.;)

Ordered a Eurocom Sky X6 cause Asus took too long with the G752vy models.

but Eurocom is overheating and CPU there is throtling (my friend tested it in review), the quality of material is lower...

I'm happy so far with the X9 for my work laptop , but will buy a G752 for my gaming I sent u PM where the X6 forums are

The GX700 is pretty cool, there is no doubt that the concept is sound, and it's up to the balance of the implementation as to whether it is a successful product item

This is odd enough for many people seeing it for the first time to be put off, but if you think about it logically, it's an extension of cooling improvement meeting mobility.

Unless there is a self-contained solution available someday that can be portable enough - not balloon out the size - this concept of a cooling dock is solid path to the future for highest performance + slim design.

The issue at first is acceptance and price.

All the 980 laptop implementations are fat - large frames and thick. The GX700 svelte profile makes it easier to tote around for mobile use, while still having good performance.

The GT72S is $3100, the PM870 variant is actually a large SLI box that has been altered to fit a single 200w GPU - there isn't enough room for the fan's / 2nd MXM card with a 200w MXM card.

So far the GT72S 980 looks the most capable / stable out of the gate.

The PM870 current BIOS/vbios aren't handing power regulation well with either the single 980 200w or the 2 x 980m SLI.

My GT80 SLI-263, with a single 330w power supply, is showing better Futuremark Firestrike / 3dmark scores for both GPU and Physics - and Combined/Total, even though the 91w 6700K should be beating the 47w 5950HQ mobile CPU performance wise.

There just isn't enough power with 1 330w power adapter to OC the 6700K and 980 or 980m SLI - even with 2 330w adapters it's still not able to draw enough power to OC well enough to beat my GT80...

I know prema and others working with him will improve the overall performance, but for now it's not there yet.

When Clevo can work out the power supply bottleneck the PM870/PM775 could really kick ass - but I need to see it happen before I purchase :)

So far the MSI GT80S 980m SLI / 980 SLI, Asus GX700 980, MSI GT72S 980 are my favorite contenders for performance and function at the top end.
