Higher Performance with Better Cooling Design

The first criteria while surveying the gaming laptop is always to find a powerful one. But when you check around you’ll find all of them are packing with Intel core i7 processors and NVidia GeForce graphics cards. The rest of the hardware specification would be system memory, storage, panel….. etc. Higher level of processors and graphics cards are important while making the choice, but the well-designed cooling system is the key to consolidate the maximum performance of both. Whenever the heavy demanding happened from the 3D software or game titles, more heat will be delivered after more calculation power been requested. Poor thermal design will limit the performance of CPU and GPU, lead the performance result to compromise a lower level, which won’t make your investment worthy. The overclocking capability is another attraction to hardcore players, allowing them an extra tool to drive the performance to the maximum under the protection of well-designed cooling system.

Faster & Smoother 120Hz/3ms Visual Experience

The 120Hz with better response time and frequency of the panel specification would be highly concerned by FPS games players, especially they need to react in very few seconds while the exciting gameplay happened. Faster and more detailed images been shown on the screen, more combat advantage the players can get. Normally the gaming specialist will request for 120Hz with 5ms response time but now may ask for 3ms. Besides playing games, users might have chance to enjoy the cinema during the holidays. Or there might be certain situation like video/image editing after weekends outdoor activities. To find the accurate color and have it exactly the same printings is the must have before making the mistakes, no matter the sRGB mode or AdobeRGB mode.

Up to Hi-Res Audio Quality of Sound Experience

Currently there are trendy people who are looking for higher resolution music format. The general MP3 music, which is only up to 320kbps/8bit, now can’t satisfy ears with higher requirement.

That’s why the 3D sound system is so important while users are playing games, especially Counter Strike or Battlefield series, it's truly a powerful weapon to help the players finding and killing the enemies before being found. To support the VR sound effect would be another demand and it's still upstream. It’s been easy to enjoy the game with stereo sound effect but not a piece of cake for 7.1 channel 360 degree sound experience. Not sure if user will have VIVE or Oculus on hand, but what if the gaming laptop couldn’t support 7.1 channel VR sound effect, then it would be a pity while they playing VR titles.
