  1. Will get back to you soon, busy preparing for exams lately
  2. Any idea on how to undervolt Ryzen mobile?

      Is there a way to undervolt? Coz what I can see is VRM current only

    3. Silentprototipe


      Oh, Honestly no. Not until Ryzen master supports Ryzen Mobile :(

  3. That's why I don't like sponsored reviews...see how 'stunning' is Asus FX505D:



    Want me to criticize?

    -Cheap feeling plastic, despite sturdy build

    -Below average score for 3750H in CB15 multi core

    -Below average Time Spy score (I have benchmark score in hand)

    -"Great cooling"? A 35W TDP CPU hits 90C in games? No info on clock speeds?

    -"Excellent battery life"? ~5 hrs battery life is average for 48Wh battery

    -Didn't mention that the 120Hz panel has 250 nits rated brightness, 45% NTSC (seriously?) and 25ms rated response times (what's the point of high refresh rate then?)

    -One of the best touchpad? I tried it before, feels cheap


    R7-3750H isn't bottlenecking, it's the issue with Vega iGPU - poor optimization resulting in high iGPU usage, causing lower FPS in games compared to Intel CFL-H/CFL-HR with 1660TI

      Just asking since their MSI GE75 review doesn't seem off.

    3. 2SidedPolygon


      It's a damn shame when even reviews become biased. I hope people/companies doing this get a lot of backlash for it.

    4. GeneXiS_X


      @Jurrunio "cooling should be better"...yeah I understand that many 8th/9th gen MSI laptops can only cool 45W of CPU heat, but this can be solved with undervolt+repaste (only thing that cannot be solved - tripod heatsink...). GPU cooling is excellent. There are many other models with worse cooling that this

    PC or laptop for collage

    Definitely desktop. The question is do you need the extra portability of laptop.
  5. GeneXiS_X

    Should i buy ASUS F570ZD laptop?

    Any links of online stores? Budget in your country currency?
  6. Rugged laptop with RGB backlit keyboard? What?

    1. Minibois


      Robust on the outside, party on the inside (keyboard).

    2. Jurrunio


      RMA for schizophrenia

    Laptop for an eGPU

    PC or laptop for collage

    There are a few models here with issues but I will not list out again, tired of it

    Laptop for Web Development

    Bad cooling, even the new one Will get back to you soon
  10. Bad cooling, many quality issues, no one can guarantee on reliability
  11. GeneXiS_X


    GA502 has low sRGB display despite 120Hz. 2060>1660TI L340 has no reviews (given that it's based on Ideapad 330 15 which is a mediocre model, I don't think it's a good model either). Lower end GPU Helios 300 2019 has mediocre cooling. 2060>1660TI
  12. GeneXiS_X

    Budget Gaming pc for 750$

    Try bringing desktop to college/uni. Any preference on weight and battery life?
  13. GeneXiS_X

    hp spectre x360 15

    So ~2kg? No preference on battery life?

    Macbook Pro vs Surface Book 2

    Like I said, anti-consumer. Repair-ability is little to none Please answer my questions:
