Are there really games that won't play at all on a 1060?



Don't believe it. People in here seem to have the opinion that anything less than a twin GTX 2080 paired with an i9 and 64GB Ram is good for nothing except solitaire because it can't run 4k at 120fps.

I have this with the i7 instead of the i5 and it runs everything I have thrown at it. Should play most games at 1080 on max settings. More than enough for most circumstances.

If youre looking to play games at ultra 60fps, youll want a 1660 ti with a 8750h or 9750h

Incredible price, very tempting
This good for games like total war etc
I've had this laptop for just under 2 years and I really like it, metal parts feel nice to the touch and its played everything bar some of the most demanding VR titles without a hitch.
IPS display as well... interesting.
Must be had cheaper by other means

P.S. Is this anti-glare?

Yeah that was a deal breaker for me. Had a very nice and powerful Dell for the past 3 years, but the screen was poor. The graphics card seems very good for this price, so even though it's IPS I wouldn't be surprised if the screen colours/brightness is the sacrifice

Yeah, I've read a fair reviews on this now and they all say the screen is sub par which is a real shame. Like you, I think the hardest thing for me to compromise on is the quality of the display. What it's actually like in real life is another matter.

If it wasn't for the poor display, I'd say this is a great deal. That being said, it's still hot considering the price

I can't believe you said that. Dell's have notorious build quality. As for support, the people in the call centres are very nice but after the physical faults on my £1000 Dell started to build up (keys, audio jack, hdmi socket and it would crash on sleep mode.. all within months of purchase) they asked it to be sent to get repaired. In Germany.. For 3 weeks

I need my laptop daily for technical work and it would be catastrophic to be without it and my setup for 3 weeks. Anyway, Germany for 3 weeks with the possibility of it being wiped or replaced blank, ridiculous and impractical. The call centre guy was nice as pie though.. nice doesn't pay the bills though

Don't just take my word for it. There's lots of other people who know the score on hukd and elsewhere. Dell are literally infamous for build quality these days. XPS their premium range is far better but still have a lot of disappointed users and users who avoid because Dell. Non-XPS (budget consumer stuff under a grand).. well be prepared to send it of to Germany for low priority support

£599 a decent price for lappy with the 1060.. you get what you pay for though. At that price you're not paying for build quality and they do honour the warranty so you're protected, albeit at a snails pace

8300H is not bad, tad better than 7700HQ of a few years ago and will get you through current games, it's not a 8750 though although gaming doesn't always benefit as much from 6 cores relative to core speed compared to other CPU intensive applications so fine, the 8300H will do fine with this lappy 1060. The 1060 used to be great a couple years ago but don't expect to be using this laptop to get great results on the coming years games though medium settings probably. If desktop users boast about 1060, firstly, it's old news, although still very capable, and secondly it isn't as fast on laptop implementation, it's not the same. But for the price is is as good as you can get an will serve well gaming for now. For £600 there's a lot of bang for the buck so it's a good deal if you're not buying for longevity in which case you need bigger pockets and play the diminishing returns.

With quidco / tcb it's a good buy for the budget. Heat added

EDIT:
One caveat: I always thought I'd use an external screen for gaming so I ignored screen spec, but turns out mainly use my lappy screen, especially when away visiting. Next laptop I get will have a better screen. Take that as you will. I've not seen this exact IPS so check reviews if you're unsure, obviously you're not going to want to game outside with it. Doesn't matter how much antialiasing your card is pumping if the screen you're looking at it on is crap. But for £600 minus quidco your not getting OLED and a 1060 so what the hey.

Paid this last year for an Acer Nitro 5 with the same processor but GTX1050. Wish this was available then.
Acer Nitro 5 AN515-52 Gaming Notebook - (Intel Core i5-8300H, 8GB RAM, 512GB NVMe SSD, NVIDIA GTX 1060, 144Hz 15.6 inch Full HD display, Windows 10, Black)
amazon.co.uk/gp/…56P
£581.1 after discount. Arguably the SSD is bigger.

Similar Spec (Amazon graded warehouse stock - grading will be lower than this, looks like they've applied the same grading across 7 units, so maybe you'll get lucky - Amazon will expire probably on Tuesday midnight.

This Currys' is probably until the stock expires. Interestingly, it does not have the Black Friday deal label - so presumably it's the standard pricing whilst the stock lasts / but as they say you snooze you lose. Pretty sweet 1060 clearing price.

I have a 1050ti laptop and it plays the latest games on high settings 40-70 fps, and a 1060 is a lot better than what I have. A 1070 isn't the minimum to play games.

I had the same issue and it went away after some updates to the drivers and/or chipset. Anyway, I don't experience it anymore.

During that time I used a program that pings the dGPU every few seconds to keep it activated since the cause of these micro stutters are from the machine trying to switch between the dGPU and the iGPU.
