This is my new Laptop, got on sale for $749.99 U.S. Upgraded the RAM to 16gb and the 1TB Toshiba Hybrid HDD to an Evo 850 250gb, so far runs great and stays cool considering the power inside.
Not a big gamer, though I play some COD Black Ops 3 and a few others that I can play at medium to high settings with frame rates consistantly 30-40, very playable. Older titles like Black Ops 1080P maxed out settings 60 fps....quite good eqipment: SSD, i7, 16GB RAM, video card with 4GB VRAM/DDR5, FHD. If you are a gamer: i think the
Nvidia GTX-960M is not powerful enough for latest games... Right now i'm looking for a gaming
laptop for my girl friend: a GTX 965M or even a GTX 970M is necessary for current games and
all new games that will be released in the future.... But if you are not a "gamer" then this
laptop is very powerful: nice machine !
Will put it through some stress and see!Was contemplating to buy it also but decided against it because of no ddr4. Though it was the best laptop i could find at a reasonable price. Very good buy mate.
Any idea what temperatures you get while on full load(mainly care about cpu full load and screen only load on gpu)?
For a moment i was confused when i saw only an 8F temperature difference. Then i noticed first it's F and second it's C.Room 74F CPU 100% Load 82C GPU While palying Black Ops at Ultra everything 60fps 73c.
No problem.For a moment i was confused when i saw only an 8F temperature difference. Then i noticed first it's F and second it's C.
Pretty high temperature at full load actually and i am a bit surprised. Obviously still far from the 100C limit and also not many times you stay at full load but i would like to see it at ~75C. Meh it is what it is i guess.
Thanks a lot for testing it out.
