Hi,
My name is David. I currently have an alienware 15R2 laptop. Its specs are
i7-6820HK
Nvidia Geforce GTX 980M
16GB ram
I am planning to buy an alienware graphics amplifier and a rtx 2070 super to put in it. The concern I have is how much performance will I lose compared to the desktop version, Is it really worth the investment. I am also afraid if the CPU will become a bottleneck. Overall how much performance will I lose?
Please give some advice on this matter

I actually want to play games at 1440p. 2070 super should easily run games at 1440p, right? is my CPU going to decrease the performance that drastically? if I cant play games at 1440p after spending 600$ on GPU then I guess its not worth the cost. My 980m ran shadow of the tomb raider on ultra settings(1080P) at 40fps (avg). How much fps do you think the 2070 super can get on this game if I connected it using the GPU dock?
 
As a test drop the resolution to 720p and medium settings and try your games. This will give you a rough idea of the best FPS you can achieve. The cpu to a large extent determines the best FPS you can achieve, the gpu determines at what resolution and game settings you can achieve that FPS at.
