Today we're taking a look at what's likely going to be the most popular of Intel's 10th generation H-series processors, the Core i7-10750H. This six-core processor is the successor to the very popular Core i7-8750H and Core i7-9750H, which are almost the universal choice for gaming laptops in the $1,000 to $1,800 range, and often take a lead role in productivity-focused 15-inch ultraportables as well.
Following up to our review of AMD's new Ryzen Mobile 4000 laptop CPU and having covered productivity performance and touched on gaming using the integrated GPU in our initial review, now it's time to tackle the other main use case for these processors, and that's gaming with a discrete GPU.
We often talk about the latest and greatest graphics cards and playing games at the highest settings, but there are times when that's not an option. In times like these, it's nice to have a library of fun games that won't melt our processors. Here's our list of 25 great (but less demanding) games we can wholeheartedly recommend.
Things move fast in the world of laptops. Since the last holiday season, several models have received updates and a few new contenders arrived on the scene. Covering a variety of use cases, budgets, and styles, we’ve gathered together the best laptops based on our own experiences, professional reviews, and user opinions.
Today we're looking at one of the most powerful laptops you can get in a reasonable form factor for a reasonable price, the MSI GE75 Raider. This 17" notebook packs a 1080p 144Hz display, the new Core i7-9750H, the full variant of the RTX 2070 GPU and 16GB of dual-channel DDR4, plus a decent hunk of SSD storage.
Gaming laptops have earned their place in the market and that's not up for debate. The idea is to show laptop buyers exactly how their systems will differ to a typical gaming desktop, so today's test is very simple: we've taken an RTX 2070 laptop and compared it to an RTX 2070 desktop in a range of games.
Intel recently launched a new collection of 9th-gen H-series processors for gaming and high-performance laptops. The focus of this review is on the Core i7-9750H which is the new mainstream CPU that will be seen in many gaming laptops moving forward and the drop-in replacement for the 8750H.
Today we're taking a look at another gaming laptop, the brand new Alienware m15, which is the company's portable laptop offering to rival systems like the MSI GS65 Stealth, Gigabyte Aero 15 and Razer Blade. Historically we haven't been huge fans of Alienware's chunkier laptop designs, but the m15 is one of the best we've seen from the company so far.
The top-of-the-line MSI GS75 Stealth 8SG is a slim and light portable gaming system sporting a 17.3" 1080p 144Hz ISP display, an RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU, Core i7 CPU, 32GB of dual-channel memory and a dual 512GB SSD setup in RAID 0. It's a beastly gaming laptop worth checking out.
The Asus ROG Strix Scar II GL504GV is a fine laptop with a good design, a good trackpad and keyboard, and generous I/O. It's not overly portable, it's not overly chunky. It's got a pretty good display, upgradeability options, and the internal hardware and performance is good, too.
