EUROCOM has just unveiled its beasty new gaming laptop in the new Sky Z7 R2 laptop, which has to be one of their most crazy-specced laptops yet.
The new EUROCOM Sky Z7 R2 laptop is completely upgradeable with modular slots ready for the CPU, GPU, RAM, SSD, LCD, and other parts of the laptop to be upgraded. You can't just go and buy a desktop GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card and slot it in, the upgradeable parts are sold by EUROCOM... but it's still awesome to see that much upgradeability inside of EUROCOM's new gaming laptop.
From the outset, you've got EUROCOM's new Sky Z7 R2 laptop rocking Intel's latest and greatest Core i9-11900K processor at its full PL2 specs (as well as many other Intel 10th Gen and 11th Gen Core CPUs), the latest Z590 chipset, 128GB of DDR4-3200 RAM (upgradeable to DDR4-3600), and more.
Dell has shipped out batches of its new Alienware m15 R5 gaming laptop, which has a fully gimped GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU inside.
Yeah, the gimped gaming laptop was busted by fellow Aussie in Jarrod's Tech, who noticed that as much as 10% of the CUDA cores of the GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU were disabled inside of Dell's new Alienware m15 R5 gaming laptop.
NVIDIA is pretty liberal with the changes you can make to their GPU for a laptop, where companies can tweak the maximum power (TGP) and other features like Dynamic Boost, Optimus, etc -- but disabling CUDA cores? I don't think I've seen that one before.
Acer has just unleashed its new line of refreshed gaming laptops, with the new Predator Helios 500 gaming laptop packing a delicious 17.3-inch 4K 120Hz Mini LED display.
Apart from what should be one of the best displays on a gaming laptop should also be one of the fastest gaming laptops on the market, with the new Acer Predator Helios 500 packing Intel's latest 11th Gen Core i9 processor, NVIDIA's super-fast GeForce RTX 3080 graphics, up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, and two PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs in RAID0 that can be used next to a regular SSD.
The use of a 17.3-inch 4K Mini LED 120Hz panel powered by AUO AmLED technology has support for full-array local dimming, which is meant to be the equivalent of VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification. If the 4K 120Hz is too hardcore for you, AORUS offers a 1080p 360Hz display option.
HP has just introduced its new all-AMD laptop, and also its first 16-inch laptop in its Omen family of laptops which is an upgrade over the usual 15-inch display HP offers in its Omen range.
The big deal here is that HP is offering its new Omen 16 gaming laptop with the option of an Intel or AMD processor, with the option between an Intel Core i7-11800H processor or AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX. You'll also get the option of NVIDIA or AMD graphics.
HP is offering the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU, or an unreleased, and yet-unnamed RDNA 2-based GPU from AMD. We should expect the Radeon RX 6000M series, but we don't know which model just yet.
Apple is already having trouble getting its new 2021 iPad Pro out and into the wild, packing a gorgeous new Mini-LED display that the very same Mini-LED technology would be gracing a display near you inside of a new MacBook this year... but nope.
According to the latest reports from industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple might be postponing the new Mini-LED-backlit MacBook laptops until 2022. Kuo wrote: "Launch of Apple's mini LED-backlit MacBook series may be postponed to 2022, according to industry sources".
There are other reports that Apple would launch the new Mini-LED MacBook Pro in limited quantities sometime this year, but with the way things are going with Mini-LED + Apple + Taiwan/TSMC supply issues + global tech shortages + COVID-19 pandemic hitting Taiwan again then 2022 would be a better year for the Mini-LED MacBook.
Dell has refreshed its XPS 15 and XPS 17 gaming notebooks with Intel's new 11th Gen Core "Tiger Lake-H" processors, with the flagship XPS 17 packing some serious specs.
The new Dell XPS 17 can be configured with 4 different Intel 11th Gen Core CPUs: the flagship Core i9-11980HK, Core i9-11900H, Core i7-11800H, or Core i5-11400H processor. You can tweak the XPS 17 with up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, and up to 4TB of PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD storage.
On the GPU side of things, there are two options for the Dell XPS 17: NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 or GeForce RTX 3050 as well as the integrated GPU on the processor.
GIGABYTE unveiled a new family of laptops powered by Intel's just-introduced 11th Gen Core "Tiger Lake-H" processors, with the flagship Core i9-11980HK used inside of the new flagship AORUS 17X gaming laptop.
The new AORUS 17X gaming laptop not only packs Intel's new Core i9-11980HK processor, but NVIDIA's super-fast GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU with 16GB of GDDR6 memory, and a 17.3-inch IPS display with a native 1080p resolution and super-fast esports-ready 300Hz refresh rate.
But the thing is, that the flagship AORUS 17X gaming laptop is only here for a "limited return" says GIGABYTE -- packing a Vapor Chamber cooler that the company says boosts the cooling capacity of the AORUS 17X gaming laptop by 37%.
ASUS has just announced its first-ever 16-inch laptop with the introduction of the new ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 gaming laptop, which features a 16-inch 1440p 165Hz display with a 16:10 aspect ratio.
Inside, we have Intel's new 11th Gen Core i9-11900H processor, and the option of NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 3070, GeForce RTX 3060, or GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics cards. ASUS keeps the ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 gaming laptop cool through its ROG Intelligent Cooling technology, which will chill the CPU + GPU as much as it can.
You can tweak the ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 with up to 48GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, and up to 2TB of PCIe 4.0 SSD storage which can be boosted by another M.2 SSD inside of the ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16.
ASUS has just announced its flagship new ASUS ROG Zephyrus S17 gaming laptop, packing Intel's new 11th Gen Core i9-11900H processor -- but I think more importantly: a gigantic 17-inch 4K 120Hz display.
4K at 120FPS isn't easy so ASUS has paired the new Core i9-11900H processor with NVIDIA's latest GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU that through Dynamic Boost can chew down 140W. ASUS has provided some monster cooling inside of its new ROG Zephyrus G17 gaming laptop in the form of its innovative "AAS Plus" cooling system, which will physically lift to keep the laptop running cooler.
Yeah, the actual keyboard raises at a 5-degree angle which opens up wide vents that let the Arc Flow fans have more room to pull more air into the laptop. ASUS also uses liquid metal thermal compound on the CPU that runs Intel's new Core i9-11900H as cool as it can -- but also more importantly, as quiet as it can. You don't want a huge, stomping 17-inch gaming laptop that's loud AF, either.
Razer has just unveiled its new Blade 15 gaming laptop which packs Intel's just-released 11th Gen Core CPUs codenamed Tiger Lake-H as well as NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs.
Inside of the new Razer Blade 15 we're looking at up to the Core i9-11900H processor (2.5GHz base block and up to 4.9GHz boost clock), a GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card with 16GB of GDDR6 memory, and up to a 4K touchscreen. There are plenty of 1080p and 1440p resolution options with super-fast refresh rates, too, so don't worry.
Razer has coated its new Blade 15 gaming laptops with a fingerprint-resistant coating, so you shouldn't get your grubby mitts all smudged across the laptop after a while. The company has also made the new Blade 15 Advanced gaming laptop thinner at the same time, at just 15.8mm thick -- Razer claims it now has the smallest 15-inch gaming laptop with a GeForce RTX series GPU.
