Nevortic, thank you for providing actual information.
By the way, did anyone notice promised 20% performance decrease after microsoft patch (KB4056892)? I tested only Dark Souce III, fps still the same.

I did not notice any change in performance and the benchmarks I made on the CPU remained unchanged. Also, I can tell you that my GL502VMK which has an i7 7700HQ has a lot more scores than other laptops of other brands. Also I want to tell you that the processor is undervolted at -100mV and I decreased the current to 50 A despite all this, the processor still has the highest scores of all.
The CPU has peaks of 86 degrees and the GPU only reaches 64 ° stable.

It is not the same model. You can submit a specific request for this model through assistance on the site.

But what about older laptops, like GL552VW? I did not see this model on this list. Do you think it will get the update?

I think the update does it only for the seventh generation of the CPU. It is a strategy to encourage owners of such cpu to buy new PCs. If I can give you some advice, wait for the next generation to the octave as there will be huge changes.
