2070 over 1070?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking at a couple of laptops. No the are the same brand. One is last ears model with a 1070 and the other is this year's model with a 2070. There is a £700 price difference between them. (Granted this year's model has the better storage option as well). Will there really be enough of a performance upgrade at 1080p to justify the increased price when I don't care about ray tracing?

I would say no if those are the only differences. But check CPU, since it may be 7th gen on the old one in which case AVOID

Both are an i7 8750h. The one with a 2070 has 512gb ssd and a 1tb said. While the 1070 has 256 ssd and a 1tb her at 5400hz. Not other than that both seem to be nearly identical.

Avoid these due to insufficient cooling:

GL703GS

GL504GS/GW

All GL704

 

GL504GV would be the best bet. 2060N is similar to 1070N

 

Are you open to other options?

I thought for the most part the gl703gs was able to at least maintain baseclock under heavy load?

Still has insufficient cooling imo. Hot surface temps+loud fans

Yeah I've been looking at quite  few different laptops. The acer Helios 500 seems to be a good choice. From what I've seen of the GL703GS it seems to be on par with most other laptops as far as cooling goes and been on offer for £1400 seems like a really good deal.

Do you have any preference on weight and battery life? Max budget?

I'm not to bothered about weight. I will be carrying it around a lot but I don't care if it's a little heavy.

 

Battery life is not to much of an issue as it will nearly always be plugged in but obviously bigger is better. 

 

My budget is around £1800 but I'm willing to go a little over £2000 for something really special.

 

Edit: the two biggest things I'll be looking for after performance is cooling and noise. I'll be using it in a pub a lot to connect to the internet so quieter is good but not imperative.
