Liquid Recoil 17" Laptop 4090 benchmarks

Here is my quick benchmark for my new recoil 17" laptop. First 2 is without liquid cooling and second is with.

My first impressions of this laptop are as follows. The display is slightly smaller than my old laptop. I think I had a 17.3" before and you notice a slight difference. I don't think it will matter though. The aspect ratio is a bit off as well as I think its 16.10 instead of 16.9. ITs not a massive issue but you do notice it.

I have only briefly played MW2 and to be honest I didn't think I would see any difference. I had a 2080 laptop and it was quite happy running MW2. I noticed quite a big increase in quality with new laptop and I was really surprised. My old one was 60hz and this is 240hz and it definatly feels smoother. I also noticed it was alot sharper. I dont fully understand why yet. The only thing I can think of at the moment is I was using balanced DLSS with my 2080 and this I used quality. My frames were about 240 with the 4090 and were 60 with the 2080 but I think it was a refresh rate cap.

The other thing I want to point out is the liquid cooler water pipes are really short. I play with my laptop on my lap and not on a table so I have had to put the cooler to the side of the laptop. I was lucky it fit tbh. I think longer pipes would be much better (maybe 4x longer) so the cooler is well out of the way. In terms of sound, it is quite noisy. I would say just as noisy as the standard fans. No fan on, I was getting 30db, fan on with no load 40db and loaded up it was 50db. Without the liquid cooler on the noise starts at 30db and then increases to 55 db as the load increases. So I guess technically it is quieter and it is likely I am getting a little extra cooling when the liquid cooler is off as there is still liquid in the laptop that will take time to bring upto temperature.

The first 2 images below show the results for timespy with no cooling (but water in the case) This water probably provided a little bit of extra cooling. The second 2 images are with cooling enabled. About 3% faster which is nothing to write home about. The temperatures are 15 degrees cooler which is significant.

Thank you for the review and, especially, the information about the liquid cooler...there are still pretty new so any information adds to the general picture. Regarding the water cooler pipes, the cooler manufacturer probably did not envisage someone using their laptop on their lap with the cooler attached.

What is most interesting, to me anyway, is quite how big the gap between a laptop 4090 and a desktop 4090 is. Your score of 23,275 is miles below a desktop (mine) score of 36,022. Not sure how other components affect things of course but, still.
With these 40 series mobile GPU's, it's almost more misleading than ever before, the mobile variants are not the same silicon as desktop counterparts, it's not as if they're the same chip underclocked and undervolted like previous generations, it's actually a different GPU altogether.

I always knew that would be the case. I have owned laptops only for the past 10 years and its always the same. The graphics card is probably 75% the price of the desktop variant and is 75% of the performance. Like spyder says, in reality, it is a totally different chip.

I quite fancy downloading cyberpunk to see what it would be like.

Even though it's far lesser vs the desktop chip, it's still a monster for a laptop GPU, it won't disappoint you
