When playing The Witcher 3 on Ultra settings, the GPU reached a maximum temperature of 81 degrees C, 100 degrees C for the CPU, 33 degrees C for the WASD keys and 43 degrees C for the underside of the laptop. These are some of the lowest temperatures for gaming laptops. See More
While from the outside Blade Pro looks like an ordinary 17 inch laptop, it packs serious gaming laptop performance. It is because Razer has equipped this laptop with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 and one of the fastest mobile processors you can buy today. It can run almost any modern game in 4K resolution in high or maximum settings at upwards of 30 FPS. See More
Razer uses ultra-low profile mechanical switches in the Blade Pro, which replicate full-sized mechanical keyboards. While it certainly makes the familiar, though noisy, clicking noise and is stiffer than a Chiclet keyboard, the travel is still too shallow compared to a regular mechanical keyboard. See More
The Razer Blade Pro has easily one of the best touchscreen displays that can be found in any laptop. The colors look accurate and vivid, as it covers 185% of the sRGB color gamut. Brightness goes beyond the industry average and can provide a very bright picture. The screen also supports NVIDIA G-Sync that helps eliminate screen tearing and smooths out movement. See More
This laptop has the latest, high-end CPU and the best GPU you can get in a laptop. Specs like these mean you can run virtually any game in 4K resolution at decent framerates, or use it as a very powerful workstation. See More
The anti-glare 17.3 inch IPS panel is bright and offers precise colors, covering 112% of the Adobe RGB color range. It also uses nVidia G-sync technology that helps prevent screen tearing while gaming. This makes the laptop great for both color-sensitive work as well as gaming. See More
The laptop has one of the best cooling systems in its price range, as it can keep the PC cool while remaining relatively quiet. It uses three cooling fans that are specially designed for this laptop. One of the fans sucks cold air in, while two blow heated air out of the device quietly and effectively. See More
4K games will run on medium or high settings with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX1070, the weakest graphics processor you can get in this laptop. If you want to run everything with the maximum settings, you have the option to install two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 cards that will run virtually any video game at max settings in 4K resolution. See More
This laptop offers one of the widest variety of connections seen on a laptop. It has an HDMI and two Mini DisplayPort connections, for multi-monitor set-ups. There are five high-speed USB 3.0 ports, two new USB-C ports and an SD card slot. It even has two LAN ports with the ability to control the priority of traffic between two networks. Finally, you can connect audio equipment through four audio jack ports that supports 7.1 audio output. See More
The laptop isn’t built for those who need portability. A large portable bag and some muscle will be needed to carry it around. Weighing almost 5kg and being more than 4,5cm thick, it's one of the biggest laptops there is. Even the power adapter is twice as large comparing to a non-gamer laptops power adaptor and if you opt for a dual graphic card version, you will need two power adapters. See More
Both the GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 versions of this laptop offer excellent performance when gaming. The P650RS consistently hits 80+ FPS in most AAA games at ultra settings. For example, the GTX 1070 version can play Total War: Warhammer at 100FPS on 1080p with ultra settings. While the GTX 1060 version can play Battlefield 4 at 80FPS on ultra settings. Even the relatively cheaper version of the P650RS with the GTX 1060 can pack a punch. See More
At this price, the Eluktronics P650RS offers a lot of features, performance, and quality compared to competitors. Gaming laptops with a GTX 1070 usually cost $100 or more and might not have the same level of build quality or other features found in this laptop. See More
Even when using this laptop for light activities such as web browsing, watching movies, or editing documents it averages at about three hours of independent use. This was measured at about 40% screen brightness so it would be much lower at a higher brightness. When it's used for gaming then the average battery life drops to less than two hours of independent use because of the relatively high resource requirements that both the GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 have. See More
Since the cool air is sucked from the bottom of the laptop, the bottom needs to stay above the sitting surface at all times. But even when this advice is followed, the P650RS still has some issues with overheating. The center and left parts of the keyboard are the most problematic ones. It's not unusual for the keyboard to heat so much as it starts being a bit uncomfortable to use. See More
The Eluktronics P650RS uses a IPS display panel which is decent in itself but could and should probably be better for this price point. Where it lacks specifically is in terms of contrast, colours, and response time. There's also some light bleeding when looking at a completely black screen. See More
Even when playing resource-heavy games like The Witcher 3, the Predator 17 is able to keep its components and keyboard cool, with the GPU reaching a maximum of 71 °C. The keyboard reaches a maximum temperature of 31 °C, while the underside of the laptop goes up to 41 °C. It's uncomfortable to hold on your lap at those temperatures but still cooler than competitors. See More
The Predator 17, with the i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and GTX 1070 provides one the best price-performance ratio as far as gaming laptops go. It scored at around 22282 points in the 3DMark FireStrike benchmark, surpassing all competitors at this price range. See More
To the left of the keyboard there are five configurable macro keys that through the PredatorSense software can be configured to disable the Sticky keys, run the fans at full speed, swap between multimedia modes and much more. See More
