  4. heard there are problems wth optimus n crossfire and buying a laptop with an integrated gpu is bettr than dedicated one. Wht is ur opinion abt this sir ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No this is a misconception mostly spread through users who never used the laptops, Dedicated Graphic cards are always better than Integrated cards.
      Optimus is mostly the ability to save power when you are not using the GPU.

  5. Thnx for ur quick n prompt reply! M taking u for ur word in this . . . .cauz i maybe investing somewhere around 80k for a good gaming laptop! Any suggestions ? Also i have heard f micro-stuttering problems in a SLI n cross fire setup. . .

    Replies
    1. The best laptop below 80k would be Lenovo Ideapad Y510 .

      The Micro-stuttering can be removed by Locking Frames/ Turning on V-sync.

    1. I can't tell you like that, what are Laptops you are thinking to buy ?

      Delete
    2. When buying AMD GPU laptops always opt for x6xx or greater model GPU. Usually a GPU with 86xx or more is preferred. In Nvidia, go for cards with kepler architecture, 640M and above or 730M and above.

    1. The 650M in Samsung is almost having the same performance as the 740M, and Lenovo z500 will be better choice.

      Delete
    2. Actually on the official site of Lenovo GT 645M is mentioned for Z500 ( http://shopap.lenovo.com/in/en/laptops/ideapad/z-series/z500/#models ). There is wrong information has been put on Flipkart and some other sites. So the 650M in Samsung is a bit more than 645M of Lenovo.

      GT 650M Ranks 82 while GT 645 is 102 (Both in mid range)

      http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html

      This is real confusion now. :O

    3. But Currently Z500 sells with GT740M only, see this Review

      Delete
    3. That Option you can check by going to Lenovo Exclusive showroom. As far as i know you have to preorder it.

  16. Hi,

    You have a very informative list here. Good job!
    I do some 3d-modelling and I also play some games like Portal 2, Prince of Persia, Need For Speed, etc. I have a budget of 35-42K INR. I am currently looking at the HP Pavillion 15-e001AX. Is it a good laptop for its price? Will it comfortably run most of the games mentioned here? And lastly (hope I'm not pestering you), how future-proof is it?

    Thanking you for your help,

    3. what you mean by kinda??? will u suggest to go for pc in the same budget for better gaming experience?

      Delete
    4. I would Suggest Desktop anyday over Laptop for Gaming, Laptops are only for Portability and will offer only some level of Gaming, not ultra and they are susceptible to heating too.
      Desktop is meant for days of Gaming at a time. If you are only looking for gaming, and would not have such use of Laptop, i would suggest you to go with a barebones Notebook and a gaming Desktop.

      Delete
    5. for a barebones notebook will that 15k asus notebook suffice? hehe btw thnks fr advice..

      Delete
    6. Yeah just grab any that will suffice for normal browsing, and usual Office software's. ASUS has many good quality Notebook in low range.
      And thanks, I am here for advice only
