"In terms of performance, the Core i9-9900K and Core i9-9900KF should perform equally at 95W. Both are equipped with eight cores, 16 threads and 16MB of L3 cache."

Why should they perform equally when there's no iGPU accounting for some of the TDP? Wouldn't the processor be slightly faster in some situations? It all depends on how they've configured it..

Let the benchmarks tell the tale.. You really shouldn't be guessing.

I'm not 100% sure of equal performance between the 9900k and 9900kf either. Every time I see the specs, it looks as if the memory controller on the kf is capable of 2933 while the 9900k is stuck at 2666.... we've seen Ryzen leverage such a difference so I don't see why Intel wouldn't try to do the same.

Regardless, I want to see real-world power usage when heavily used for games... gaming has always been the bane for laptop power consumption and heat.

Dell's pricing on the m15 is a joke! The difference between a RTX2070 and 2080 is $850...

So $600 for the 2070 and ad ADDITIONAL $850 for the 2080.. is Dell suggesting that the 2080 max-q is almost $1500? Youre kiding, right?

"the SSD (underneath a heat spreader, two sizable fans, the hard drive and a 90 W hour battery)." I think you got your closing parenthesis in the wrong place. Should be "the SSD (underneath a heat spreader), two sizable fans, the hard drive and a 90 W hour battery)."
