4gb vram for these 50 series really hurt and bottleneck the cards would alive against them. Most games I'm running on my laptop 1060 are using more than 4gb vram
I am talking about these, which are using gen12 graphics already and are released too. Laptops with Intel Core i7-1195G7 and i5-1155G7 "Tiger Lake Refresh" are now available - VideoCardz.com 2x the gpu performance of an AMD's best ryzen 7 - 5800u.
Not really. Happy to get a 3070 for a decent price atm... when they do come down, it'll be another wait for these new intel chips and so on and so on...
I have just read the 12th gen intel chips will be released in November 2021. We are probably looking at January 2022 for the availability of the chips to be widespread. It all depends if you want to wait a minimum of 6 months then possibly pay a premium for the new 10nm chips.
I've only seen a handful of 11th generation cpu gaming laptops come out in the last few weeks
Not a bad price. I'd note though that this is a 1065, so integrated graphics is nowhere near as good as in the 1165G7 (this config is £799 on the same site), comparable to Vega 10 for the previous poster.
It looks nice, 2 questions how does it compare to the ryzen 7 counterpart What about the on board GPU, compared to a Vega?
Looks good but when looking further down in the specs it says Ryzen 5 processor?
8gb ram is a bit low , I know you can upgrade but should be 16gb minimum to match with the rest of the specs
If it's anything like the MSI GF65 Thin with a 90W RTX 3060 then the Legion 5P with 115W RTX 2060 just beats it in benchmarks (for graphics at least) https://www.hotukdeals.com/comments/permalink/44533661
I think this is the 85watt with a 90watt boost 3060. The legion is the full fat 120watt (or 130, higher anyway
Indeed, it's a shame really, nice specs for the money otherwise.
85 Watt 3060 instead of the better performing 105 Watt part, but that's reflected in the price.
At 85 watts the 3060 should be a pretty good GPU. Quite similar to a 2070 Super Max-Q 90 watt. In any case it is a nice spec match for the 1080p screen and a good sweet spot for performance to price ratio.
I think you mean 3060, and yes the TDP can be set as high as 115W if the OEM has put in sufficient cooling. The physical chip is identical whether it’s 60W or 115W or anywhere in between. The chip could also have Max-Q features enabled and potentially we would not know (because of the way they have done it with this range this time around).
Needs a RAM upgrade, but otherwise seems good. Although I think 85w TDP is on the low side for a 3600?
It does not have an optic drive: CD/DVD Drive No - Dummy Drive / Blanking Plate
I don't think any of the Aspire 3 come with touchscreen, unless you get a 2 in 1.
Maybe OK price for a 17 inch, as you can't find many with such a big screen. But the specs are not that great, i3 and HHD, plus this is quite a basic model. I have a feeling this is hybrid and it comes with 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD. Battery not great. If you're after a big screen with optic drive, it may be good for you, otherwise you will find nicer laptops with better specs for around this price.
is it touch screen? cant find any info saying it is?
I really liked the build and appearance but the only hitch was asus has never bought asus was using dell.
https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/laptops/new-inspiron-14/spd/inspiron-14-5410-laptop/cn51001sc?view=configurations Just had a look on this one any suggestions please.
All the suggestions above are decent. Swift 3 is not bad, but all suggested are better. If the form factor is important, check as well Huawei or Honor 13, you may find something decent. The Lenovo suggested is a good one too. However, I prefer the Zenbook. Zenbook is Asus' premium model, so it will probably be better built, better looking and more compact/portable. My Zenbook is 990 grams. On the whole, even the Zenbook may be only 250 nits (the good part is screen is matte) vs Lenovo 300 nits, I still think I prefer the Zenbook.
No problem it’s a Lenovo ThinkBook 13s-IML it’s a decent machine and perfect for everyday use. My Wife uses it for work and is happy with it. There is a deal thread for the Lenovo.. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lenovo-thinkbook-13s-iml-133-fullhd-ips-300nits8gb256gb-ssdbacklit-with-essential-backpack-for-ps49993-delivered-using-code-at-lenovo-3734089?utm_source=mappshare&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=3734089&utm_campaign=2021-05-30
Thank for the advice if you don’t mind which on of Lenovo you bought.
Code no longer working and price has gone up to £699
All-soldered RAM, I'm afraid. Price of being a super thin slimbook. Performance should be very solid (pleasantly surprising considering the single heatpipe + fan) and battery is excellent. Screen's pretty crap, though, dim and bad colour coverage - at least as per Notebookcheck. If you can stand that, it's real good for the money!
At last, 1tb SSD. Ram soldered or upgradable anyone? (confused)
Yes I noticed this too as I am looking for one! Not too keen on Acer built quality and customer "service" too (note the speech marks lol).
Nice deal, good to. See these deals on the ultra thin laptops
Now can be had for £901.55 with code from their ebay Store Code: PROMOFIVE
I had the 9920g with the 8600 GPU. Was good. But 8+ kilo in weight with its 20.5" screen. My son had to go and break it. Insurance didn't want to replace it so they gave money for replacement.
No worries, keep a lookout on Box.co.uk. They normally offer the same spec laptops for around the same price but use the original Acer manufacturers warranty from the day you purchase, unlike Currys where you have to go through them for any repairs.
Yep, I’ll skip this then due to bad experience. Thanks
I don't think anything can compare to the that series! Totally unique laptop Also, as you've been stung by warranty once I would think twice before getting a laptop from Currys. Purchasing this Acer from Currys somehow does not make it eligible for the manufacturers (Acer) warranty.
This seems like a good deal. Am in the market for a laptop as mine is falling to pieces. Anyone used one and have a review?
Depends what you value. I have an Rtx card and I never use it for Ray Tracing. But Dlss 2.0 is a game changer and is definitely worth it. However to answer your question, GTX will definitely still be relevant for years to come as they are the cards most people own.
Is there any point buying and RTX machine yet? Or will the GTX still be viable for the next few years?
Power supply not suitable for gaming for gaming I would pick this up with free collection https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/144024610355
Or the basis of a nice server. My main server uses a 10400. Runs Plex, Blue Iris CCTV with a few 4K H265 feeds, a few VMs, OBS and barely breaks a sweat. Price wise though, I wouldn't go much further than "reasonable". It's about right, and £500 from Currys and Amazon is a joke
Looks cheaper than Currys/Amazon both at around £500 new. Would need Sarden for a full cost breakdown, but that's a £170 6 core 12 thread processor which is pretty decent, leaving you £180 for mother board, power supply, 8Gb RAM, 1Tb HDD, Windows, keyboard and Mouse. Seems like a reasonable deal to me, if you want a reasonable machine for MS Office, internet browsing and very light gaming use?
