Nice! Seems to be the fastest laptop we have to date. Even beats out the machine CW3 was developed on. :)

That is actually quite nice to hear. It was my second choice. Originally I tried to buy a refurbished gaming machine with a SSHD and other stuff, But after having it for 2 days the keyboard failed and the silly shop wanted to charge $300 for a new keyboard. So It was just returned and I bought this one from costco. To me it felt like a bit of a step down. But I am overall happy with it :)

Let me throw my results in:



Note: SSD tested, not HDD

For some reason my graphics card don't like to perform on 2D and my RAM is a bit lazy apparently, but overall, a good rig. Not great, but good. :)

Built a new rig, spent about $1250.  Pretty quick.

My new laptop, spent 1200. With an integrated graphics card and a seperate GeForce card it picked the slower card for some tests, but overall still nice results (without overclocking).


Edit: Skip the score above, redid the graphics tests with nvidia card only, much better 3D graphics score.


Can the list be updated? It's not nice to sit at the bottom of the list ;D

Added your very impressive score (for a laptop) to the list. :)

If there are others in this thread who has not been added to the top post, please shout out - I've not been maintaining this.

With a broken laptop comes a new laptop, and with a new laptop comes a new score:

Rerunning the 2D tests gives increases this score by another 100 points.

Oh man, nice rig, but in a rig that beefy, why a 1050 Ti?? That rig is worth a 1070 at least?

You'll get a few extra years out of that monster if you later upgrade the video card. It's a nice box, and more powerful than Virgil's development machine.

I've been going on a lot about how absolutely terrible the system I use to run this game is, so I thought I'd post the evidence here. Please prepare your incredulity.

I might as well do this as well...

Not too awful for a six-year-old laptop...

Don't die! :)
