How good is this laptop?

#1staticxtreme5Posted 9/26/2013 7:26:14 PM
Up to 3.4GHz Intel Core i7-4700MQ processor with 6MB cache
Intel HM87 Express chipset
14" diagonal WLED anti-glare display with Full HD 1920x1080 resolution
8GB DDR3 memory
750GB 7200 RPM hard drive
Bluetooth wireless technology
2GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M graphics

Would this be able to play all the latest games with high / ultra settings? I must admit I am not good at reading benchmarks or any of that so I'm unsure how that graphics card compares to today's standards. I would love to be able to max Skyrim out with maybe a mod or two, or the HD package installed if that's possible.

Performance
The graphics performance of the GeForce GTX 765M is clearly above the GTX 660M thanks to the higher amount of shaders. The maximum performance may differ a bit depending on the cooling solution of the laptop due to better utilization of GPU Boost 2.0 on laptops with more effective cooling solutions. In our tests the average performance of the GTX 765M was above the older GTX 670MX. Demanding games like Metro: Last Light, Crysis 3, Far Cry 3 or even SimCity were playable in 1366x768 pixels and high detail settings at fluent frame rates. Older and less demanding games like Star Craft 2 however were playable in Full HD with all settings set to max.

I see TP is cranky after someone woke him from his nap.

I didn't know you could get Full HD on a screen so small.

There are phones with full 1080p screen's,

Pretty nuts isn't it, PC's are starting to lag behind resolution wise due to very few monitors having anything higher and even fewer PC's being able to render anything taxing at those resolutions.

You can get laptops with 11.6 or 13" screens with that resolution. The problem right now is that Windows doesn't scale the UI well enough so having a really high resolution on a small screen isn't optimal. My friend has a 14" laptop with a 1600x900 screen and that's pretty much the limit if you don't want to have to scale the UI.

Phones and tablets are weird, each one has just a little bit better resolution than the next. 1080p is the "standard" and computers don't want to seem to deviate from that. 1440p is kind of scarce, mostly for enthusiasts. I think PC will see the next big jump in about 5 years with 4k.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.
