The best gaming laptops in 2021 will have RTX 3060, 3070 and 3080 GPUs inside. But the naming is shady this year. Be informed.

I REALLY don't like how Nvidia is naming their laptop GPUs this year. It's going to be a much more complex purchase decision. What do you think is the solution? How do you think should they name their laptop GPUs?

Name them after how good they perform, I'm mean by that (a name that represent a working computer and a name that represent a gaming computer) it's not hard just make it easier for the people who buy laptops

Yeah.... Dave like your videos but make sure you point out the strong points and say oh what this is trying to be. Case and point your Alienware m15R2/3 review. You complain about Alienware thermals but they runs their cpu/ gpu at a higher clock and watts. But when you look at the performance it’s some of the best. So it makes it important to have good cooling or not run it in a hot room . Then again Alienware has the best warranty. I have gotten my laptop replaced 2 times due to the heatsink not installed properly.

Hey Dave ! I have a question on a laptop purchase. I have two options the Dell - G5 15.6" Gaming Laptop - 144Hz - AMD Ryzen 9 4900H - 16GB Memory - AMD Radeon RX 5600M - 1TB SSD or HP Omen 17.3” i7-10750H Gaming Laptop (RTX 2070/16GB DDR4/1TB HDD/256GB SSD/Win 10) The SSD in the omen can always be upgraded. I know there’s other computers out there but this is my two choices I don’t do a whole lot of gaming but when I do I would like to be able to play stuff like call of duty or other AAA titles at the highest settings not sure if this one would work but I really like it as well but I’m unsure if it would be able to play call of duty , Jedi fallen order etc. HP OMEN - 15.6” Gaming Laptop - AMD Ryzen 7 - 16GB Memory - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti - 1TB SSD - Mica Silver. Mostly would be for stuff like photo/video editing web surfing other types of productive work and watching Netflix SElosk etc. I like the look of the omen and the ips screen along with the graphics card but I’m still having a difficult time deciding. Which is the better choice based on specs and performance not pricing? Thanks

thanks for the database, i´m an alienware fan but since i notice the cooling and wattage factor i keep watching other brands, even in my first gaming laptop (m14xr2 with a gt650m), a custom cooling base give -10° = to automatic mhz gain, without overclock.

I have been looking at gaming laptops for years since I purchased my first one 3 years ago. It is interesting to see these power differences for high performing/top-of-the-line RTX GPUs per TDP performance. Much appreciated and now I have a renewed perspective on looking deeper into the individual specs of all gaming laptops components. Cheers!

Is asus ROG G15 (ryzen 7 5800h rtx 3070 ) better than RTX 3060 i5 10300h? Former is 130W and latter is 85w Price difference of 1k $
Teddy DELERAY 6 dagar sedan
Damn dude! Thank you very much! I've seen the difference since i'm in a kind of "hot" country (in the caribean) and getting a lot of problems with cooling my gaming laptop even if i can play sometimes with airconditionning. I've bought the first ROG wich were like 1.34 inch and after i get a CLEVO at 1.75inch with a 300W for the alimentation. They both got te get used to heat in here. But the ROG Hero II with his 0.98 inch suffer a lot of heat. It's hard to push it on performance. I love ASUS but hard to buy a Griffin ( i love the style) or another CLEVO (kids are a budget) so no other solution than an Helios 700 that you covered well! And Thank you very much for the drawbacks on this laptop that not so many youtubers mentionned! Keep it on and Thank you again !

When speaking of laptops it depends if the design can cool the extra wattage. How is it on Nvidia? They don't design the laptops of MSI, Dell, HP, Omen, Asus, etc. This shit makes no sense. It is well known that thermals are a big issue when keeping things small and compact. Wtf does names have to do with it?

People want desktop performance in a laptop and it is impossible. In a race for sales the laptop makers are giving us specs and not good functional machines. I would love it if the reviews would include the noise level these things produce, the cooling is SO LOUD on some laptops, the noise level is louder than the speakers. They are just totally not gratifying to use on a plane, in the living room, or a meeting room, or really anywhere. With the noise they produce they dominate the space in a bad way. Gaming laptops as a whole are borderline unsafe. I mean they rival a hair dryer; they are hot and loud. 1 They should not produce so much noise as to cause hearing loss. My Gigabyte Aorus 7 produced a noise level of 87dB. The EPA states that an hour over 70dB can cause hearing loss. 2 They should not produce so much heat or exhaust heat that can cause burns. That Aorus blew 108 degree air with in a minute of being under a load. The CPSC states that that is not good. So, I have finally gotten rid of that horrible Ggiabyte Auros 7 and I am looking for another laptop to replace my aging Asus GL552.

A laptop is more than the sum of its parts. Always gotta be careful of who you buy from, especially now since the better built and better cooling is so important with the bigger and more powerful cpus and gpus we have these days

I'm just getting into computers and just got a MSI GE76 RTX 3070. Really powerful and really loud, but what I don't understand why thermals are so important as in why can't they make these GPUs and CPUs more efficient. Im an electrician and heat means inefficiencies. Why do computers pump out so much heat, I just was using my laptop on my lap, it was warm for web browsing, I hit render to process a photo and almost instantly it started burning my legs, it produced heat instantly no delay. That's a lot of power, I know of 1000w heaters on 240volts that don't even get that hot that quick

Get the 4800 model as you get a better CPU, and bigger ssd storage, and you’re still getting a 120 hz panel as the other model has slower CPU, smaller ssd, and the only real advantage is a better display with 144hz but honestly you’re not gonna be gaming 144 FPS anyways on a gtx 1650 so if I was you I’d definitely take the bottom model you listed !

They should require OEMs to label the GPUs with a performance tier; like a ABCD letter before the type name, if they want to keep the desktop naming scheme, or just straight up obscure the proper gpu name and have the whole naming based on performance of GPU at specific wattage.

I was just wandering if someone could consult me on whether to get a Lenovo Legion 5 with RTX 2060 and i710750H or to go for the Gygabyte's G7 with RTX 3060 and i7 10870H. The prices are roughly the same and I'm pretty sure that Legion is better overall, minus the CPU/GPU which are, ironically, the most important parts...
