Intel Moving Towards 14nm

December 6, 2012 by David No Comments divider image

Moore’s Law is apparently still valid as far as Intel is concerned. The chip giant is already well ahead of the competition and intends to trample it yet again by moving to a 14nm production process while competitors like AMD remain at 28nm or higher. A smaller production process leads to more energy-efficient chips that […]

Find the Right Gaming Notebook
Whether you are looking for the best portable gaming machine in a certain form factor or within a certain price range, the aim of this site is to provide you with precisely that information. There are several manufacturers laying claim to the title 'world's fastest/best/only gaming laptop'. While, technically, several of them can be correct (by using identical components), there are clearly more factors at play when selecting the notebook that is best suited for your actual needs. Rest assured that you are looking at a site that focuses on accuracy and builds on a genuine passion for gaming and mobile technology.

The Hardware is Everything

As you probably know, there are several gaming brands such as Alienware, Asus Republic of Gamers, MSI's G-series and others that build and/or design high-end gaming gear. While it is usually a safe bet that these normally high-end machines will play any recent game without breaking a sweat, what really defines a gaming machine is its graphics capabilities.

A dedicated graphics card (GPU) is an absolute must if you require gaming capability. It is even more important than the processor, since most new high-end CPUs from Intel (and partly AMD) are sufficiently fast to not be a bottleneck for 3D graphics. A fast processor will of course improve the overall performance of your machine, but the GPU is what ultimately determines the frame rates in your games.

In other words, any system with a powerful graphics solution qualifies--with or without the branding. Anything labeled "integrated graphics" should not be considered at this time. Gamers need a dedicated graphics processor from one of the two main manufacturers NVIDIA (GeForce) or AMD (Radeon). Deciding among the vast variety of different GPUs is more difficult, but we have done our homework and will never recommend a sub-par graphics card.

Need Help? Just Ask!
If you have any questions about a specific machine or mobile GPU, or a general question about gaming laptops, don't hesitate to ask. We unfortunately don't have the resources to go into lengthy email conversations on an individual basis, the comment section is always open and you will receive a reply as soon as possible. Any comments or suggestions on site/article improvements or corrections are also welcome.

We are always on the lookout for fresh content and will accept any relevant submissions for evaluation. If you have a recent device, we want your opinion on it--submit a legit review, get it published, and get paid for your efforts. Contact details can be found on the 'About' page.

Buying Advice
A laptop--especially a high-end model--is a big investment, and locating one that meets your gaming needs requires some research. Upgradeability is very limited, so it's essential to make the right decision from the beginning. Once you have a purchased a laptop with a mediocre graphics card, no amount of tweaking will make it capable of playing the latest games. Whether you are currently looking for a new rig or are already a proud owner, check back with us often for the latest updates, reviews, and guides as well as the latest deals and coupons.
