Lenovo Thinkpad X1E (gen 1), Razer Core X chroma (with a RTX 2060 Super) and a LG ultrawide. Overall I was surprised at how fast the thinkpad's 1050-ti was - my expectations were rock bottom I guess, but the Razer Core X with the RTX Super blows the doors off

It’s good to see that your Razer Core X has enough power to drive that Super card! Which Ray-Traced games do you find yourself coming back to?

tbh, I think the state of ray traced games is fairly immature and I'm enjoying the raw power the 2060 super is providing. Benchmarks as this pegged only about 10 to 15% slower then the 2070 super but the price is significantly less.

Gears 5 and Rise of the Tomb Raider struggled with my laptops 1050-ti, and now I can play them easily on high (or even ultra) with good frame rates

Amgff, I really like your solution for what to do with your MacBook. Where did you find that dock?

Whilst you can game on Mac I eventually switched back to PC, I prefer not to be limited and be able to max out the graphics on games like WoW. To be honest I prefer that setup, I know when I am using my Mac its head down and work :)

I use Shadow so I can max out Ghost Recon Breakpoint and not worry about it while gaming on my 2011 mini.
