Why buy an expensive laptop with an RTX 2060 GPU when it looks like Intel might let you do ray-tracing on ANY DX11 capable GPU?

The bigger question mark is paying £1600 for an RTX 2060 which is not even 10% faster than the 1660 Ti (mobile versions).

ao.com/pro…spx this is a better deal!
My bad, nonetheless the 2060 is barely better than the 1660 Ti (Thank you Nvidia) so a complete waste of money to go for one of them.

Would be better to go with the TUF models instead, or MSI, Gigabyte etc. Strix are always priced too highly.
I got the 1060 6GB variant. Thinking whether to upgrade to 2060 or 1660 Ti version hmm?

Or just pay little extra and go for 2070?

How does the 1060 6GB version hold up?

It's pretty decent the laptop version. I play Destiny 2 maxed out.
Doom; maxed out ~70-90fps or more
Apex Legends maxed ~70-85fps

I tried out older games like BioShock remastered, get 100+ fps. Same with games like Borderlands GOTY Enhanced, Borderlands 2. Basically any older games runs great.

Some new games like Battlefield will have problems on ultra, resulting in below 60fps most the times.

Is 1660ti, 8-16GB ram, 128-256GB SSD, 1TB HDD for around £800 with credit options too much to ask for, and to be in something a bit more reliable than an ASUS (just going off opinion I have read about ASUS)? All too often I've found something close to what I want, but it only comes with a 512GB SSD; that is not "loads of storage", not these days. 128-256GB SSD, 1TB HDD is not even loads of storage, but we're talking about laptops here...
1660 ti is better than 1060 6GB just make sure the 1660 ti is not a Max-Q/P variant.

512GB is fine. Just plug in external hard drive to laptop via USB 3.0 port and gaming on there shall be fine. Or install the game you play on 512GB when finished uninstall.

Yes and no. It's a rtx2070 but 8th gen i7 instead of 9th gen. Also it's £150 more aftrer discount
Oh look, overpriced Asus rubbish. That's unusual!
