[BT] Intel Haswell, Nvidia GTX 780M laptops leak - Page 3

On an ultrabook with a decent card for that type of machine ( GT640M for example) hitman absolution is running sub 20fps at 1366x768 on high. only on LOW and perhaps in some cases medium can the best ultra books muster 25-30fps at 1080p consistently and thats on weaker titles graphically like old source engine games

But the HD 7970M doesn't manage 30 FPS at 1080p in Hitman or Assassin's Creed 3 either. And it doesn't manage 60 FPS on high or better settings @ 1080p in any of the games you mentioned except Skyrim. You have to get into GTX 680M SLI or HD 7970M CF territory to get 60+ FPS in BF3 maxed out and by then you're paying way more than what you would have to pay for a similar desktop PC.

You do get a hell of a lot more gaming performance from one of these than from an Ultrabook though. Especially for the price.

Gaming laptops are nowhere near enthusiast desktop PCs in terms of pure performance/money and they never will be because of the inherent limitations of laptops, e.g. cooling, size, battery life, etc.

Now we know for a fact that two inevitable products that we already knew were coming are indeed coming.

Oh my god, reminds me of my dads old laptop from 1997. The size of the Asus G7X series is perfect imo, any thicker is just too thick and bulky for my taste.

Some of you against gaming laptops I think do not get the point. I already have a pretty powerful desktop (don't tell me to upgrade my CPU unless you want to give me money for it) and sometimes, we want to game while we're not sitting in front of the desktop.

My G73 is great when I go to another town to visit friends and we want to game, it's perfect when I'm watching something on the desktop and I want to game casually on the side. Hell the i5 + 460m is still able to play everything at 720 or 1080, sure you won't get 60+ fps all the time but this thing was only 1.1k before taxes.

I do agree though, that laptop technology will never be on par with desktop due to limitations in heat transfer, size, etc...but we're at a point where hell a 2 year old 460m can game pretty well.

Even mobile workstation such as Dell Precision M6700 (some come with i7 quad core and Quadro K5000M) ; Clevo ; Xi PowerGo XT; HP Elitebook 8770w; Fujitsu Celsius H920; Lenovo W series have the same look. Sometimes function trumps form

I'm hoping there's a refresh of ASUS' G46VW which IMO is the perfect form factor for my needs - it just needs a spec bump to the newer chipsets and I'll buy one this summer. biggrin.gif

i think thats a really bad example actualy.

a) the source engine is really nicely optimized
b) the 640 isnt THAT bad. 20-30 FPS on medium? really?

if we are talking about integrated intel HD3000 then sure maybe you have a point, but you are talking about still a dedicated card.

i understand the point you are trying to make, but dont over exagerate like that, it looks bad.

No, you are not.

I don't particularly like the ultra-thin laptops. They feel like toys. I want something my 6'6" tall, size 16 shoe, 4xl motorcycle glove wearing hands can hold and not feel like I'm holding a toy.

Make it thicker, heavier, faster, more powerful, and have a battery the size of King Kong's left ... well, make it big and powerful.

Well, at this point, I just use a desktop for anything that needs actual power.

Give it a big battery, a high res decent quality screen, a proper size keyboard (tenkeyless is fine) that doesn't feel like garbage, and don't sacrifice system performance for battery life. That's all I really want.

Here is that picture I mentioned with my playing Left 4 Dead 2 on a Surface Pro with my xbox controller. I was getting over 30fps on 1080p@ high settings.

Yes I know it isn't a demanding game, but it could also run skyrim at the same res on low or 720p on medium. For a quick game it served its purpose, but if I was down for an extended period for sure give me my desktop.
