I could find laptops with acceptable prices having RTX 2070 and most recently RTX 3060. After watching some benchmarks I am not quite sure what is the best option for the GPU. CPU is also a concern and the laptops I am interested in, the one with RTX 2070 has Intel Core i7-10750H and the laptop with RTX 3060 has Intel Core i7-10870H. Taking in consideration prices are fairly similar and both have almost the same SSD hard drive. Which one would you prefer?

10750h = 6 cores 10870 = 8 cores

3060 is better unless it's an ultrabook (g14 etc) so most likely 3060

do note if you prefer playing fps esports games (like csgo, r6 siege etc) I would say to buy laptop with mux switch or advanced optimus if any one of the product you mentioned have it(note:- If u consider using laptop screen for gaming. if you use external monitor this dosent matter.)
Next check the wattage of the gpu:- There are rtx 2070 and 3060 with different wattage so if you consider an Rtx 3060 with max q to a max p rtx 2070 there will be a huge lead for rtx 2070.

Thank you for your replies. Are the specs descriptions usually reliable as for which gpu version "normal" or "max q" has the laptop? I am concerned about RTX 2070, I don't know if RTX 3060 max q even exists. If specs don't mention anything about max q, can we asume the laptop doesn't have the max q version?

They dont mention it these days but some manufactures still do that also some do provide the wattage. its kinda messed up

Latest news I have just seen a computer I am strongly interested in, less expensive than usual in this country. What's your opinion? 28 units left, I must be fast.

Laptop Gamer MSI GF75 Thin 10UEK

Display: 17.3''
RAM: 16 GB (3200MHz) DD4-SDRAM (1x16)
CPU: Intel Core i7-10750H (12MB Cache, 2.60 GHz to 5.00 GHz)
GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 (6GB GDDR6)
Hard Drive: 1TB SSD
OS: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Price: ~1500€



I want it mainly to play some Total War titles: Empire, Napoleon, Shogun 2, Rome 2, Rome 1 Remastered. If able to maintain reliable and good fps: Attila, Thrones of Britannia and if still able (I don't expect to do so) Three Kingdoms, Troy.
