upgrade? Hardly possible. Who buys a gaming notebook, must make no compromises! Which models bring the latest games-blast onto the screen rapidly and sharply, showing the test.
E notebook for gaming? In direct comparison with a gaming PC had the mobile Windows in the past, machines at a disadvantage: They were not as well equipped, more slowly, but still much more expensive. Cheap are gaming notebooks not as before.Whether there are now more speed, higher image quality and better amenities, reveals the ULTIMATE TECH NEWS test.
On the table instead of in the bag
At the fundamental problem for the producers has not changed: you must accommodate strong hardware in the smallest space. But powerful processors and lightning-fast graphics chips need space and air to breathe, otherwise they will die of heat strokes. The Test Candidates are therefore no easy email devices, but up to 6 centimeters thick and 4.16 kilogram weight hum. So to constant mobile companion, they are useless – but probably as a replacement for the traditional PC on the desktop.
Magnificent screens with 17 inches
There also disturbs not the lush format – some test candidates have an opulent 17.3-inch display (44 centimeters) and are thus about as large as a DIN A3 sheet. These models are popular among professional gamblers, but are very popular even with amateurs and casual players in the course. The only when the screen games in Full HD with 1920×1080 pixels razor sharp displays – as it is possible to test candidates. Although there are notebooks that games even 4K represent (3840×2160 pixels), but dramatically even with a potent processor graphics chip combo breaks the pace of complex games a – like the Toshiba Satellite P50t-B-10T. A notebook with a good Full HD display is therefore not (yet) the better and cheaper option.
Reserves for future top titles
In order for a gamer notebook really goes rapidly down to business, all its components must perfectly harmonize. And that was the Asus G751 is the case: with its immensely powerful Core i7 processor, Nvidia’s top graphics chip Ge Force GTX 980M and a fast SSDit completed all the tests with flying colors. Even most bandwidth-hungry games brought it in full detail reproduction even with 113 frames per second on the screen. This Asus also has sufficient reserves for future, more demanding titles. For smooth playback is ensured as early as 45 frames per second.
No cross-country skiers
Speaking of reserves: How does it actually made with the upgrade of the test candidates? Due to the design not too rosy for all test candidates can be but at least the memory expand. Class: Despite their relatively thin enclosure, the devices offer Med ion X7843 Eraser and Schenker my SN XMG P506 Pro has room for a retrofit table HDD or SSD in 2.5-inch format. In addition, there is room for an SSD in the plug-in card format M.2. On the other hand, both devices do not have a DVD drive – games can be so only install via download on notebook. And how it looks with the battery life? The ranges of 4 hours and 54 minutes (Acer Aspire V15 Nitro VN7-572G-72L0) up to 2 hours and 16 minutes (MSI GT72S Dominatrix Pro). For gamer notebooks are the ordinary values for standard models rather moderate – which provide six hours more without power.
Conclusion: Comparison Test gaming notebooks
The Asus G751 took the first notebook in all speed tests a smooth 1.00, is well equipped and offers enough reserves for upcoming games – a deserved winner. The unit is equipped with 2,199 Euros but also very expensive. With just under 1,200 euros much cheaper is the gaming notebook in second place: The Acer Aspire V15 Nitro although is not a high flyer, but did all the tests with a high tempo. It also convinced with a for gaming notebooks very ordinary battery life, and a relatively low noise level.
