    Question GTX 1650 mobile (max-p) vs. RTX3050 mobile 35W?

    Is the RTX 3050 (non Ti) mobile 35W TGP an upgrade (?) to the GTX 1650 mobile 50W TGP (max-p), that is worth to forego a 120Hz IPS display and spending 5% more? The laptops differ in GPU and display only. Thanks for your help.

    Does a 17.3" laptop have CPU with higher TDP than on 15.6" or 14" inch laptop?

    My logic tells me that 17.3" laptop should have higher TDP cpu because the laptop is bigger and easier to cool?

    [SOLVED] Will a 460% increase in TDP kill my cpu ?

    I have an i7-9700 that was throttling severely. I found that if I increase TDP to 300W it stops all throttling. It does not draw near that, I believe 154W was highest I seen from it. If I use 300W setting it will run all 8 cores dead on 4500MHz which is max turbo for 8 cores. A thirty minute...

    [SOLVED] TDP Clarification

    So, I just wanna know weather the TDP of is the wattage of your cpu on stock or the wattage of your cpu on max "recommended" turbo freq. Take my X4 860K for example, its rated at 95W TDP, 3.7Ghz stock, 4.2Ghz recommended Boost clock. So, does it consume 95W @3.7 or 95W @4.2?

    [SOLVED] Managing Thermals in ITX Case

    I have a i5-9600k, mildly OC'd to 4.8ghz all core 1.35v, and it hits about 92/93C under extended cinebench load, so I think this is about as high as I can go. My question is this. I noticed non K sku CPU's, even those with much higher core count have low TDP listed at 65w. Say an i9-9900. I...
