Pretty bad in this case means ‘worst’! There aren’t any worse performing coolers out there. That said it’ll still keep it within operating temps but seems to run around 70-75C if left to its own devices and this is a good price for this particular chipset.

YesMan_D

The cooler on this card is quite notorious for being pretty bad, how bad exactly I'm not sure. Worth looking into before buying for sure.

Graphics cards,like cpu's dont get huge die shrinks any more, and when they do develop a new process it takes years.. People didnt buy a.m.d. cards even when they were cheaper AND faster, so pc gaming is no longer a priority for A.M.D. We just get what they develop for other uses with gaming drivers. Nvidia can charge what they like, the blame lies with the people who didnt buy the best value products back then.

Nope, that would be the similarly priced 1050ti that's only 2/3 the speed of this card (and also the 1050ti offers no free games).

Still slower than consoles and compared to my 2080ti so it's slow.

Discrete gpu will always be harder to find in a cheap laptop. What I’m saying is, pretty much any decent midrange laptop will be equipped with 4 core cpu releasing 2019 onwards.

Picard123

Depends what your definition is of "plays every game just fine". If you don't mind jagged edges, all the details turned down, no light reflections, low fps, graphical slow downs and it generally looking terrible when playing AAA games, then sure, it plays them "just fine"....

wixelix

It is an issue, for example this is rather recent. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Thinkpad-X260-won-t-boot-after-RAM-upgrade/td-p/3957460 There is a chance it can work by just buying a random stick of the same speed but there's also a chance it wont work. Then you've wasted time + money. Always try to get the exact same stick.

Simon_E

I regularly do it. You do realise that motherboards chipsets are built to handle this and only in rare circumstances does it cause issue. Sodimm ram all runs at the same voltage (nearly all anyway), the timings dont matter that much as motherboard will put both to the same timings as slowest one, I have already addressed the speed in previous post. If different speed will go to slowest speed of the two modules. It really isnt an issue in modern computing. Read up a little about it for modern motherboards (you prob have experience with older hardware)

Kigo1

It's common practise for MSI to put in minimum replaceable hardware as they try to make the laptop as cheap as possible so customers can source and spec it as desired

*EDIT* My mistake in a moment of madness the eBuyer one is also the Armor edition. With the 10% off at eBay code today it is worth anyone looking out for deals on the Gaming X. The eBuyer one is the Gaming X as I have mentioned.They are different cards by MSI I thought I had already made it clear that the Armor is the budget option. Supporting backplate, better cooler, side RGB lighting for windowed cases, higher clock speed out of the box.

aaron_sas

Whats the difference between the Amazon and ebuyer one besides thee free games?

cicobuff

I am not saying the cooler isn't any good, just that for the sake of £4 over this deal why would anyone go for an Armor when they can have the better designed and faster clocked as standard gaming x edition and three free games?

aaron_sas

I have a MSI armor oc edition Rx 570 8gb temps never go above 75 degrees most of the time it stays under 60 degrees install MSI afterburner and set fan to 40 percent speed so they are still inaudible.

russtyk

Ah, right, thanks for the detailed reply :-) Apologies for misinterpreting your comment, I was being wary because for a long time it seemed fashionable to bash Nvidia and perpetuate a myth that they deliberately gimped older cards at the driver level. I can't remember where the article is now, but there was a good analysis done on a reputable tech site that completely disproved it. They showed that over time, the performance of both Nvidia and AMDs older cards had been improved by later drivers. Take your point about there being no incentive to optimise newer games for older cards, that makes sense. However older cards can still get small optimisations from other improvements in the drivers. Obviously at some point this just doesn't happen any more, as support does eventually get dropped and clearly this is going to happen to the older cards first.

MarineRX179

I didn't say Nvidia was directing gimping driver performance (existing performance), what I said was they just stop bothering optimising driver performance for old cards in NEW games. The simplest example is on latest driver a GTX780Ti will more than likely still beat a R9 290 in pretty much all games that were launch before the card became EOL; on new games that are released AFTER the 780Ti EOL though or games the 780ti get decimated by the 290 series cards- the newer the game, the worse the 780Ti will perform. It is not the case of Nvidia "putting poison" in the driver to cripple the performance of old cards, but more a case of "cutting off supplies" in providing what's needed to perform fully in new games to the level that they once did in the old games. https://www.techspot.com/review/1418-geforce-gtx-780-four-years-later/page9.html "Closing Thoughts It's hard to believe that the GeForce GTX 780 is four years old, although the card is certainly showing its age. In the 22 modern titles we tested, the 780 was just 23% faster than the 1050 Ti, despite the former GPU being four times larger, packing more than twice as many transistors and consuming well over twice as much power. Compared to the R9 390, the GTX 780 has slipped well behind. It's no secret that the Kepler architecture hasn't aged as well, which is either down to the architecture itself or Nvidia neglecting driver development -- or maybe a bit of both. Regardless, we've never seen an Nvidia architecture age as poorly as Kepler has. We don't expect the same to happen to Maxwell anytime soon, but of course we'll keep an eye on its performance."

Beehj84

If £40 is changing your GPU that significantly, then yeah, get the cheapest RAM possible and be sure to get yourself at least a GTX1050 or RX560. You're also probably looking at 1st Gen R3's, and your budget rig is going to be awesome for the price regardless of how fast your RAM is. If you're buying an R5 2600, then you're probably looking at a GTX1060/RX580 level card bare minimum, in which case if you manage to find a GTX1070 for only £40 more, then you should also save another extra £40 for fast RAM so that you're not bottlenecking your much faster GPU anyway! Much more likely is that £40 won't change your GPU choice that much. Also, with this hypothetical supposed RAM and hypothetical £40 and hypothetical PC build where you're significantly upgrading your GPU for 40 hypothetical pounds, we can hypothetically say basically anything ... In the real world, with the prices available today for multiple people through a retailer, then the price difference to 3000mhz RAM is usually so insignificant that it would be worth it even *IF* it didn't make a noticeable difference in performance. Which is absolutely does. Certainly for the £10 difference available to most people. Probably even for £40 on a 16gb kit, given just how big the performance gains can be, and given that increase iss going to be such a small fraction of the total build cost.

JohnnyRoller

Definitely, that is what the PC game is all about. If you have a low powered GPU and have no intention to upgrade (let's just say a 1050), then no it's not worth the extra £10 for the faster RAM. If you have a expensive GPU and CPU (or will eventually upgrade) then yes it is worth the extra £10. It is all relevant to what you want and need from your computer. If you can save £40+ on RAM (in my case) then under no circumstances is it worth it, that can be spent on a better GPU or CPU which will have a much bigger improvement overall.

Uncommon.Sense

100% agree, right place at the right time is usually just lucky or not. Let's also now set it straight, unless you are saving a huge sum of cash, then there is no reason not to spend an extra £5-10, especially if it is for a personal build that may last many years. :)

JohnnyRoller

No I was shopping for RAM at the time to sell a build, and I just looked on Amazon as they have so many ways to get money off. Let's be brutally honest, what I bought made sense to buy against other prices at the time, compared to the difference in performance. That is what we are talking about, as for the other guy who mentioned 40% difference in performance is just off their face... My point is that there is always ways to buy items cheaper than what is on this site, you just have to use common sense.

Uncommon.Sense

You completely missed the point, the RAM you bought in May was as item misprice, not the normal price.I am asking you to post misprice deals, as without the misprice, even using the the coupons and credits etc. the price difference would have still be pretty much nothing compared to a faster RAM kit. How did you find the cheap discounded RAM in May, was it on here?

The desktop linked below would offer quite similar performance I would imagine. Although the desktop cpu would be better. An 7700hq or 8300h laptop cpu would be more comparable to the cpu in the desktop linked below. www.hotukdeals.com/deals/amd-ryzen-5-2600-240gb-ssd-8gb-ddr4-gtx-1060-6gb-dragon-gaming-pc-673-freshtecsolutions-3073959

MrMatt991

Yes that's what you're doing when you compare a desktop and a laptop. Though they don't market them as "downclocked", because they aren't, they are thermally/power limited. They can run at the same clock speeds as the desktop part for very short bursts but slow down drastically after a few tens of microseconds. Useful for interactive response but no good for heavyweight data movement. As you say, the decision is rarely that simple and most people want laptops anyway, but I wanted to point out that despite the marketing numbers the laptops do not keep pace with desktops, even after several generations of development, so for some uses a used desktop can be a great buy. (Annoyingly I can't edit the quote section to focus on the bits I'm replying to using the latest Android client ..)

computerguy234

You're comparing old desktop CPUs to low power CPUs, downclocked on purpose to use less power and generate less heat because they often run on battery, of course the desktop CPUs will run faster. Even then, Intel are starting to focus on lower power usage on desktop CPUs as well now. A modern high end laptop CPU isn't much worse than a high end desktop CPU, the only difference is caused by the lower clock speeds for power usage. http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-8700-vs-Intel-Core-i7-8850H/3940vsm485626 The real answer to your question is, it depends. What does she really want? If portability is in any way important to her, get a laptop. Will she take it to school/uni? Will she enjoy using it while sat in the lounge watching TV? If she will be exclusively gaming and doesn't care about portability, get a desktop.
