Where did all of the huge SLI laptops go?

I don't care about having 2 1080Ti GPUs, I just want a heavy and bulky laptop that can cool itself down and has lots of I/O ports, like at least 4 USB 3.0, an SD card reader, a micro SD card reader, and a CD drive. Is it really so much to ask for in our current year? It is borderline impossible to find any SLI laptop in the world anymore, and that is a huge shame since they filled a niche. There is no such thing as a bulky laptop in 2022 and it upsets me dearly.

      I have unironically been professionally tested for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) as a teenager and I never got diagnosed with it.

    I have almost this exact one still. I haven't used it for a few years though.
    MSI Titan GT80 or something.
    Looks the same without the red accent on the back and the keyboard was just red LEDs, not RGB.

    It was too big to be portablke and with horrible battery life. 2x970m. It worked well for a few years but was ultimately a waste of money compared to a desktop.
    In a job where I travelled a lot, it was nice to have a pretty nice system with an 18.4" screen and mech keyboard everywhere I went. But it was something I could only take on trips, rather than something I'd carry daily to work.
    With things like the XPS, I can't see a market for these big machines anymore.

    I'd prefer to have a proper mini computer or all in one computer than a laptop with a proper screen.
    Stop demanding that laptops become real computers.

    based OP. For me, it's the M18xR2. The best laptop of all time. c. 2013, it can be upgraded well into modern components including 3000 series RTX cards and an M.2 SSD in the second MXM slot. Pic related, my machines with the best one's specs.

      used to work for a custom laptop company, these things were pretty kick ass, loved getting to play vidya on these to test them out.

      Alienware Command Center is god tier.

      my close-second machine of the batch. Notably, this 980m can run without Optimus which appears to be the only way to get 4k output from the HDMI port. The 1070 is more powerful but I haven't found a way to get 4k output.

      I'm a pleb secondary but they're definitely holding their value in the used market.

    The Inspiron 15 from Dell is what I use. You can get them really cheap, usually second hand about 90 bucks. Make sure you get the i3 version and not the atom or Celeron version.

    Mgpu is dead
    Single gpus are inefficient housefires (some Turing and rdna 2 are ok)

      secondary mobile PCIe was its own reward for upgradability even after SLI died. You can get adapters for future devices since the interface is standard.

          it's a serious question. You really need a 12 ounce Macbook? Where's the cutoff between doing a few curls vs sacrificing functionality?

            I use a thinkpad myself, you dont need 10 pounds for functionality. A mobile cpu/gpu is always gonna be weaker than the desktop counterpart because of cooling and other factors. If you need to use a gpu then use a desktop

    Because big corp decides so.

    >No one wanted 3D tv's
    >No one wanted thinner fragile phones
    >No one asked for non removable batteries in laptops yet here we are
    >No one asked for the metaverse but here we are

    It's because corporations are lead by out of touch businessmen that decide you should use/have something. The the rest of the flock just follows corporation X because they have even less imagination.

        My old work laptop was a toughbook. Its hard getting all of the alt functions and dedicated hardware buttons to properly function outside of Windows with all the vendor's drivers and utilities. I think they're all still intel exclusive devices too.

    You keep making the same shitty thread over and over, what do you expect to hear?

    >Where did all of the huge SLI laptops go?
    Nowhere, they still exist. They were always a niche, from early Alienwares to the watercooled gimmicks from today.

    There's a huge market with different types of laptops, from subnotebooks/netbooks, thin and lights, normal working/gaming ones to behemoth gimmicks that aren't even really laptops but more "luggables".

    I have a g75vw, I really like it's back vents and 17" screen. It has an i7 4/8t, the screen is super bright and it can be overclocked to 100hz but the 660m in it is only good for retro shooters and 2d indies at this framerate. The battery is dead but it's still a fine computer.

      My mom is still using my old g74, this thing is 10 year old and working great while my thinner msi laptop was overheating from day one and stopped working right at the end of the 2 years guarantee window.
