Best Notebook for Gamer and Uncompromising Power User

Players need laptops with large 17 or 18-inch full-HD displays that are powered by high-performance graphics chips and powered by the fastest i7-series mobile processors.

The mobility plays a subordinate role in such cars, since they are usually operated in one place and are rarely taken on journeys.

Lots of storage space up to 32 gigabytes and large disk SSDs with over 1 Terabyte plus 512 gigabytes provide enough space for loads of games and other software. Depending on the equipment you have to invest between $1,000 and $5,000 in such a performance miracle.

The top equipment and the extreme performance of gaming notebooks make this device class also interesting for “serious” users, who are mainly in the graphical and multimedia environment.

Here a top list best notebook brands for Gamer and Uncompromising Power User

Review Acer Predator 15 Intel Core i7-6700 HQ

Before the actual test of Acer Predator 15 come short amenities. Our unit was equipped with Intel Core i7-6700 HQ (2.6 GHz / 3.5 GHz up) processor, a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M graphics card, and 16 GB DDR4 SDRAM memory.

Asus ROG and Asus Strix are a concept for every gamer. The gaming notebook Asus ROG Strix G502 is the same with both of Asus’s subsidiaries and has entered to deliver mobile high-end gaming performance. Read Asus ROG Strix GL502 test below.


Variants of the Asus ROG Strix GL502

Asus ROG Strix GL502 is a gaming notebook series, which have in different versions.

Our Asus ROG Strix GL502 test is based on the following model:

Asus ROG Strix GL502VT-DS71-HID11-EN

Asus ROG Strix GL502 review

Design & processing

What strikes us test positive in the Asus ROG Strix GL502 is the comparatively low weight of the Asus ROG Strix GL502. .The gaming notebooks often weigh 4 kg and more, the Asus ROG Strix GL502 weighs 2.2 kg comparatively light weight.

  • The case of the notebook is in the optics of brushed
  • The aluminum look is, however, pure effect-hassle. The Case of the Asus ROG GL502 Strix is held entirely of plastic.
  • The red accent motifs are glued in notches in the housing as a sticker.
  • In this price class, other gaming notebooks offer more than a complete plastic exterior. Ultimately, however, this is a matter of taste.
  • The integrated keyboard drops flat as usual with notebooks. Scissor switches are used, which in handling make a similar impression with rubber mats keyboards.
  • The WASD buttons are highlighted and Asus manages to add a number pad.
  • In addition, there is red RED lighting for the keyboard.
  • The trackpad makes a solid impression and is surrounded by a red frame.
  • Since Gamer in practice already connect a gaming mouse anyway, our Asus ROG Strix GL502 test does not have a special focus on the trackpad.
  • Except for the full plastic exterior covered in our tests no negative aspects in the design and processing on the Asus ROG Strix GL502.


  • On the left side are the power supply connector, the Gigabit LAN port, display interfaces (1 x Mini-DisplayPort + 1 x HDMI) as well as 1 x USB 3.0 and 1 x USB 3.1 Type-C.
  • The opposite side accommodates the headphone / microphone combination port, a SD / SDHC card reader, a Kensington lock slot, and another USB 3.0 port.
  • There is little to complain about the connectivity. Feed 2 x USB 3.0 and 1 x USB 3.1 Type-C could be scarce if a lot of peripherals is used. This would require an external USB hub.


  • With Intel Core i7-6700HQ CPU and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M graphics card that delivers Asus ROG Strix GL502 be a good gaming performance.asus-rog-strix-gl502-gaming-notebook-review
  • This is especially true for the native resolution of the built-in display. Current games accelerate the gaming notebook easily in Full HD resolution.
  • Asus ROG Strix GL502 Gaming Notebook ReviewThe benchmark is the Asus ROG GL502 Strix behind comparable gaming notebooks that rely on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M instead of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M.
  • Compared to other GTX 970M notebooks the performance is very good.
  • Gamers, who want to play exclusively in the native display resolution 1920 x 1080 Px (Full HD), can expect consistently liquid frame rates of> 40 FPS with current games.
  • If an external WQHD or even 4K display is connected, the GTX 970M however becomes the bottleneck.
  • As with other gaming notebooks, a lot of power is added to the battery.
  • At a moderate load, about 3.5 hours of battery operation is indoors. Under high load, the grip to the power supply can be required after only 1.5 hours.

As usual with a high-end notebook, also developed Asus ROG GL502 Strix heat. A frequent criticism in gaming notebooks, as this can shorten the life of the hardware.

Conclusion Asus ROG Strix GL502 Review

The Asus ROG GL502 Strix Asus delivers a good gaming notebook, which can speed resolution current game titles at high frame rates in the native Full HD.

In the Asus ROG Strix GL502 test, we also like the fact that the gaming notebook is comparatively light and flat.

The very good impression is a bit tarnished by the wrong aluminum look behind which a plastic case is hidden. For a more secure future, a GTX 980M instead of the GTX 970M would be an interesting option.

Apart from that, Asus offers a very interesting notebook for gamers.


Good Performance (Full HD Gaming)
Comparatively light and thin
Good IPS panel


Plenty of plastic

Test Medium AMD Gaming Notebook: Acer Aspire E5-553G

While many manufacturers are starting to seriously menggaap gaming notebook with an Intel processor as its brain, Acer still presents variants of notebooks that use AMD architecture.

In some scenarios, notebooks with embedded processors or AMD graphics card is priced at a cheaper price, and performance offered also not inferior to competitors’ products. Acer Aspire E5-553G is one such example.



Acer Aspire E5-553G are notebooks that do not emphasize the sheer size and light weight. Using a solid black color that wraps the whole body, Acer Aspire E5-553G have the impression providing capabilities that can not be underestimated.


This is evidenced by the design of the rear screen using a special texture to a lighter color. Besides looking cool, the design also makes this side is not easily soiled.

For the interface, Acer Aspire E5-553G provide a complete connector. You can find two USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI port, D-Sub, Ethernet, and USB Type-C on his left side. Space on this side also used for air circulation and a Kensington Lock. As for the opposite side, the Acer Aspire E5-553G still pinned optical drive, which is adjacent to one USB port, audio jack, and power.


Yes, this notebook still provides DVD readers to install the game or watching a movie. Therefore, the overall dimensions are larger than current notebooks in general.



Acer Aspire E5-553G provide specifications that can memenunhi their needs. This laptop provides a choice of three processors, the AMD FX-9800, APU A12-9700P, or APU A10-9600P. In architecture, the third variant of this processor is designed with technology Bristol Ridge. Duet with 8GB RAM, the specification is to support the purposes of gamers. However, consumers who need a notebook for video editing purposes can also consider this notebook.


One supporting factor is the availability of Radeon graphics cards R8 M445 DX. As a result, you can play the game heavyweight release this year, for example Rise of the Tomb Raider. For some games are not going to be played at maximum settings, but with the medium setting, you can enjoy the game to 60 fps. Likewise for editing, the notebook is able to sustain Adobe Photoshop and Premier.


Acer Aspire E5-553G weaknesses in terms of performance is the battery life is less than adequate. On PCMark testing for battery life, this laptop can last only 1 hour and 43 minutes. Battery consumption will be more extravagant when hot notebook began to be felt. You can prevent the waste baerai with frequent enable standby mode when the notebook is not in use. Sendir Acer claims this notebook battery life up to 10 hours.


Acer Aspire E5-553G provides key numpad, which usually does not exist in other notebooks. This button is very helpful to play the game. There are some commands such as Page Up, Home, or End is accessible via two buttons, one of which comes from the numpad this. Size proportionate button makes this notebook quite comfortable when worn a variety of purposes.


Meanwhile, the USB 3.0 capable of charging other devices even if the notebook is turned off. In other words, this laptop also serves as a power bank, but it should be remembered not be used to fill the power of other banks. It could be your bank power has a greater power.


  • Qualified in-class performance
  • complete interface
  • Availability of key numpad


  • The battery is less durable
  • Expensive
  • Excluding OS Windows


If you see the price is Rp 9 million, Acer Aspire E5-553G quite competitive when pitted against a gaming laptop that uses the Intel platform, although it will not be so attractive to consumers.

In addition to performance, the existence of the numpad keys lets users easily recognize the keyboard layout, especially for those accustomed to working using the PC. Batteries that do not have a durable power shortage can be quite disturbing.

After Nvidia released their VGA card with GPU Pascal for the PC a few months ago, they finally announced the same graphics processor for the laptop. Unlike the previous series, the GeForce GTX VGA 10XX series cards for laptop device has a performance that is not much different from the version that is attached to the computer device.


Well, one of the well-known manufacturers of laptops, Razer finally also update their gaming laptop line with Pascal GPU VGA card with them. This time, Razer offers a gaming laptop Blade Pro, which this laptop has a thickness that is thin and weighs a fairly light for a gaming laptop.

Razer Blade Pro makes it a kind of monster for the gaming laptop is equipped with top-class components. Processors use; Intel Core i7 6700HQ paired with RAM capacity of 32GB. For the graphics processor itself using one of the flagship VGA cards from Nvidia, the GeForce 1080 GTX.

For cooling, the Razer design a fan shape their own making. There are two in number, which is also combined with a heat pipe to dissipate heat in the laptop is maximum.


Screens used for measuring 17.3 inches that has a resolution of 3840 × 2160 pixels 4K, with IGZO panel and support Nvidia G-Sync. With large specifications, no doubt this laptop is used to play games at high resolution, using the graphics settings high or ultra.

Slim Gaming Notebook Test: MSI GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro

Having already time for the launch of the new mobile Pascal graphics cards could provide the first gaming notebooks with GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 to the test, followed by MSI GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro now the third representative.

Here, however, is no longer the GP104-GPU fully configured for use, but the slightly trimmed GP106 chip. This simplifies the cooling, but also allows for more compact devices at the same time further increases in graphics performance.

Despite the full desktop graphics and the fast Core i7 CPU and of course an SSD and HDD of the 15.6-inch model falls pleasingly compact and light in its aluminum case for a gaming notebook. How proposes the small gaming bolide, one learns in this test.


After our test for MSI GT62VR Dominator Pro with GeForce GTX 1070 and for NEXOC. G736II with GeForce GTX 1080 we can now welcome a device with NVIDIA’s third Pascal offshoot in the editorial. The MSI GT63VR 6RF Stealth Pro uses the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 and likely to increase the gaming performance compared to the direct predecessor clear once again it is not to replace the GeForce GTX 960M, but equal to the GeForce GTX 970M. For all the latest game titles should be actually played without problems and also for virtual reality should now be enough computing power available.

The remaining hardware data read also promising. These include an Intel Core i7-6700HQ with up to 3.5 GHz, a total of 16 GB DDR4 RAM and a fleet of 256 GB SSD, which is tied thanks NVMe protocol via PCI Express. For their own games also put an additional magnetic storage disk with rich 2TB in the device. The display gives it only with full HD resolution and thus with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. Support for G-Sync does not offer it in our case. The RGB-backlit SteelSeries keyboard counts as the basic equipment as the XSplit Gamecamster for Live Streaming own gaming sessions, the Nahimic audio enhancer and of course the Killer network. Modern ports like USB 3.1 Type-C also not missing.

All of which brings MSI under in a slim 15.6-inch aluminum. The MSI GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro brings it just to a height of 17.7 mm and brings below 2.0 kilos – for a gaming notebook of this price and performance class which has been a rarity. Priced like never before without deep into their pockets: Nearly 2,000 Euro would have MSI for this gaming Boliden.

Simple but elegant aluminum body


While other gaming notebooks like show time with an aggressive, eye-catching design, which power is in them, the appearance of the coat of MSI GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro amazingly simple. The entire casing is black, here and there, there are smaller lettering and logos. The housing cover sheet between two pleats on the left and right side in the middle the familiar dragon emblem, which a few years ago made MSI to his gaming logo and comes in almost all product categories by the manufacturer for use – whether in gaming notebooks , graphics cards or motherboards. Screen-lid and base are made of brushed aluminum, while the frame is around the 15.6-inch display made of plastic.

Overall, this makes MSI GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro a very sophisticated look – the processing is on an excellent level, gaps are perfectly elaborated, sharp edges there despite the choice of materials no and even after more pressure on the housing there are at any point after. Only the two hinges on the display could be stiffer.

With dimensions of 380 x 249 x 17.7 mm, it falls surprisingly compact out for a gaming notebook of this price and performance Lasse. In particular, the overall height of 18 mm can be proud of. Until now, gaming suitable notebook as a desktop replacement right Klopper and anything but portable. For the MSI this is no longer GS63VR Stealth Pro, especially since the weight of around 1.8 kg should not deter to make the notebook a daily companion.

The top case is also made of aluminum. This benefits not only the cooling of the hardware but also allows a pleasant feeling for the hands on the wrist rest. opened Also the equipment is from a simple page. Only the 105 x 70 mm large touchpad is highlighted – with the two stickers on the lower right side but showing the device, which it’s made.

After switching it’s over with the simplicity. Like all other current gaming notebooks from MSI can also ours come up with an RGB backlit keyboard from SteelSeries. By default illuminate the Taiwanese those in rainbow colors. Who does not like, but the color can also be set the same for all keys, or provide different lighting effects for even more attention. The settings can be made via the revised Dragon Center. In addition, can be read all important parameters such as temperature, fan speed and flow and adjust or activate the recovery function and frequently used programs start clearly from a central point.

Terrific touchpad, good keyboard


The SteelSeries keyboard keys are large enough with 15 x 15 mm, the key spacing with 4 mm ideal. While the stroke could be larger, but the keystroke feels very good. Something unusual is solely layout which MSI again does not leave the standard and makes minor adjustments as a displaced Windows key or a smaller return key. The latter one is planning to change at least for the QWERTY layout, and thus for the German-speaking world in the future, as we were told on demand. With a bit of getting used to but it can be very good nonetheless write on the keyboard and play.

When the touchpad GS63VR can also convince. The sliding properties are perfect, the reaction is always accurate and fast. The keys for the left and right mouse click will be issued not dedicated, but can be carried out at the bottom. Thanks to multi-touch support can be at least the left mouse click on simple finger tabs at any point press within the touchpad. The touchpad reaches almost approached the MacBooks from Apple and is by far the best we have so far encountered in a gaming notebook.

Despite its compact design, which has MSI GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro a variety of connectors to offer. On the right side, there is a USB 2.0 port with quick charge function for smartphones and tablets, a modern USB 3.1 port on the type-C and Gen 2 and a DisplayPort output and an HDMI port. Unusually, however, is not only that the external 180-W power supply must be connected laterally, but that also the power-on button is at the forefront, which is actually believed more in the top case directly between the screen and keyboard.

On the opposite side are three more USB 3.0 ports, a 3-in-1 card reader, a Gigabit LAN port with killer functionality and a Kensington lock for theft protection ready. Two 3.5mm jacks for connecting a headset has MSI also housed. Although the Ethernet jack and the power supply connector are located laterally, the terminal position is okay. Both left- and right-handed also can produce a confusing clutter on the desk conveniently connect a gamer mouse without.

The back of the MSI GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro is completely dedicated to the cooling – more connections here are not found. Although the total of three fans – two for the graphics card and a can put on their fresh air from the bottom and are derived from the top case of the processor, additional air intakes are provided on the back

Just as on the underside. A maintenance cover for the rapid exchange of mass and memory, there’s no at MSI GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro, however. Who wants to do that, need to lend a hand and remove the entire bottom. The battery with its 65 Wh is permanently installed and can be replaced, so bad.

Inconspicuous cooling


As already mentioned, are in MSI three fans installed GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro, who take care of the cooling of the quite potent and fiery hardware.


The Pascal GPU brings it to a maximum power of 100 W, the Skylake CPU provides an additional 45 W have to be removed. The cooling of the 3D accelerator is therefore taking care of two small radial fans, while the processor is held by a single rotor on temperature. The fans are clearly seen in the top box – will host the notebook accordingly, may even completely see through it.

Nevertheless, can be found on the back and the two side panels behind the terminals additional air intakes – they are sorely needed, as will be apparent to the surface and component temperatures later.

Setting High Performance AMD Radeon Graphics Card to Play Game

I will discuss how to make the performance of VGA AMD lighter when playing PC games. Follow the tutorials below.

First, click start menu and type AMD

AMD Vision Engine Control Center via start menu


Or via desktop
Or via desktop

Select Gaming option

There are two options to choose: Manage graphic setting for gaming “Gaming Performance” or “Image Quality”

Then, select the Gaming Performance

Control performance setting to maximize system performance for gaming with two option: “Standard 3D Setting” and “Midmapping”

Nah, you will see a window and adjust the optimal graphic to performance of AMD Vision

There are 2 options "Quality" or "Performance"
There are 2 options “Quality” or “Performance”

That you can consider, which you will chose between Performance or Quality. The high-quality graphic needs high-end graphic card (VGA). So, if you didn’t have it, you should adjust to the performance setting. I know you lose the best game experience when playing the game, but it’s consequences.
