P72 or wait for P73 with RTX?

I'm on the fence... should I get the top model P72 or wait for RTX to reach the Thinkpad workstations and be a bit more futureproof?

Re: W520 Win10 + Optimusless Nvidia M2000

I'm at the opposite end of that spectrum. I mainly use the W520 for 4K video editing - thus I have no need for the Intel graphics. I would rather due away with optimus, and just run the Nvidia. I sure hope I can get this solved in order to have a backup system to run beside my upcoming P72. Finding ...

Re: W520 Win10 + Optimusless Nvidia M2000

I held on to my beloved Win7 till now. But sadly it is getting phased out. More and more thing seem to not be supported on 7. Years of updates were starting to break things...

W520 Win10 + Optimusless Nvidia M2000

Hi all, I could really use some assistance getting my Nvidia M2000 up and running on my newly installed Win10 Pro W520. I must say that getting Win10 onto this machine was a fight. Multiple failed installs. Had to tweak and fight multiple issue, but finally have it running smoothly. That is all exce...
