The five most powerful laptop’s all features overview
In the world where these cars exist, there are no phenomena such as lags and brakes. Here are completely different phenomena: games in ultra-high resolution 4K at maximum graphics settings; lightning-fast rendering in 3ds Max and Adobe Premiere Pro; support for virtual reality helmets and a huge reserve of power for many years to come. Not only e-sportsmen and amateur gamers choose flagship gaming laptops. They are popular with professional 3D-visualizers, video editors, as well as those who want to buy a laptop once and for all. Here are the five most interesting models.
MSI GT75VR 7RE-054RU Titan SLI
Incredibly fancy 17-inch machine with a thickness of 6 cm, weighing 4.5 kg and two power supplies. What are you ?! The thing is that there are two NVIDIA GeForce GTX1070 8 GB graphics cards in SLI mode. This allows you to use the power of two or more video cards at the same time to process 3D images. In addition, inside is a 4-core 8-core Intel Core-i7 7820HK processor with a frequency of 3.9 GHz and 32 GB of RAM. The main thing that gives such a configuration is the ability to play in 4K resolution in those games that support SLI. Accordingly, the display here is 4K. Despite the fact that the hardware in this laptop is from 2017, thanks to the SLI mode, it will still light models on the latest GTX2080 graphics card. Especially the effect will be notified when it comes to 4K gaming “on the ultras.”
Of course, a pair of video cards, RAM and a chic display are not the only advantages of this MSI GT75VR 7RE-054RU Titan SLI. There is also a mechanical keyboard and a cool speaker system with an audiophile DAC ESS Saber. Also included is an amplifier that can swing even high-impedance headphones. The laptop received a huge 512 GB SSD, as well as a 1 TB hard drive for all sorts of things.
Lenovo Legion Y740-17ICHg (81HH000DRK)
A laptop with a 17-inch monitor and a modern 8 GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX2070 pre-top graphics card. Its performance in terms of FPS is slightly lower than that of a pair of GTX1070 in SLI. However, there is an ultra-modern technology for ray tracing in real-time, thanks to which glare and reflection in games become incredibly realistic. Also in the 20th series of NVIDIA video cards, artificial intelligence appeared – it is responsible for improving the image by smoothing the edges on objects.
But for all these miracles to work, it is necessary that the games themselves support all these latest technologies. In the meantime (in May 2019) there are no more than two dozen such games. Among them are Battlefield V, Metro Exodus, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Mechwarrior V: Mercenaries, Control, etc.
The processor in the laptop is a six-core Intel Core i7-8750H, the amount of RAM is 16 GB. A 512 GB SSD drive and a terabyte hard drive are built-in for the system and games. By the way, an important feature of the Legion family of laptops is their design. Although these are gaming machines, they look strictly – the thin 23-mm case of conservative geometry is devoid of broken lines typical of gaming devices, bulky elements and aggressive details like red inserts.
ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II GL504GW-ES023T
ASUS is positioning this laptop as a weapon for shooters. And here’s the thing. In games of this popular genre, the slightest drawdown in performance, the slightest lag, is critical. I almost had time – and all: killed by a direct hit on the head! To prevent this from happening, ASUS not only supplied the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor and 16 GB of RAM but also the fastest laptop display with a hertz of 144 Hz and a response time of 3 ms. Thus, this model and a high FPS (frames per second) will provide a smooth image with the minimum possible delay between events in the game and on the screen. By the way, if you still do not have enough RAM, you can increase it yourself up to 32 GB.
Note that the ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II GL504GW-ES023T is a very decent 256 GB SSD, so you can install the most important games in addition to systems to speed uploading to an SSD. The hard drive has the usual 1 TB of free space.
HP OMEN 15-dc1001ur 4UU62EA
A kind of anti-crisis gaming laptop. This is the choice of those who, on a limited budget, still want a powerful device based on modern hardware. Firstly, there is a 6 GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card. Although this is the youngest model of the new 20th series, it also received both the tensor kernels forming artificial intelligence and the RT kernels responsible for ray tracing. Also, the card is powerful enough to provide a playable frame rate at 4K resolution in modern games. Secondly, HP OMEN 15-dc1001ur 4UU62EAbuilt on the basis of the Intel Core i5-8300H processor.
This “stone” is noteworthy in that it was in the 8th generation of Core-i5 that multithreading support appeared so that four Intel Core i5-8300H cores can process eight threads. It turned out that in terms of performance, this “five” is comparable to the previous generation Intel Core i7, and Core i5 puts it at all on the shoulder. Thirdly, the display supports a refresh rate of 144 Hz. This means that what is happening on the screen will be displayed incredibly smoothly.
Yes, in this configuration, only 8 GB of RAM, which is not enough for a gaming machine. However, if necessary, you can easily add more – the bottom cover is removed by one or two, and you will see all the replaceable components. But the space on the 256 GB SSD and a terabyte hard drive are enough for the vast majority of users.
Acer Predator Helios 500 PH517-61-R633 NH.Q3GER.007
If for some reason you decide to transfer from an Intel / Nvidia needle to AMD, this laptop will allow you to do this most comfortably. You can read more about this model in our detailed review. The machine is built on a bunch of Radeon RX Vega 56 8 GB graphics card and Ryzen 2700 octa-core 16-thread processor. This configuration is powerful enough to drag modern games in 4K resolution. However, the hardware is not as modern as the models on the NVIDIA Series 20 cards: there is no real-time ray tracing and anti-aliasing using artificial intelligence. So why then such a price tag – you ask?
The answer is simple: the laptop is notable for a solid 32 GB of RAM and just a huge storage space: a 512 GB SSD and a record hard drive of 2 TB. In addition, you get a high-quality 17-inch display. Of course, for the same money, you can take the device on more recent hardware of comparable performance, but there will be less memory, storage capacity, and disk space.
Some people think gaming laptops are a whim. Say, a true gaming computer can only be a desktop and only its own assembly. However, reality refutes this opinion. Modern gaming laptops equipped with the most advanced hardware are inferior to desktops only in the price – yes, you have to pay for mobility. As for performance, they calmly drag the most complex projects: at maximum settings, in 4K format, and in virtual reality.
