    Very disappointing that the fastest GPU options are Intel only. AMD is now shipping the best laptop CPU option out there, but so far the best GPU paired with it is the RTX 2060 Max-Q (aka RTX 2060 Slow Edition). Considering the regular RTX 2060 barely has enough horsepower for RT games, the Max-Q is probably a slideshow.
