Recommended Laptop for Half Life Alyx

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all,

 

Looking for a laptop that will easily run Half Life Alyx at 80 fps or better and do so for extended gaming sessions ( an hour +) without overheating.

 

The things I'm looking for mostly;

 

Performance

Running reliable ( not overheating, bogging down..)

Budget around $2000

Runs with Oculus Quest and Valve Index (includes needed ports for connection)

32GB RAM

NVidia GPU

 

Things not particularly important;

 

Weight

Battery life

Thinness

 

I've left most of these criteria intentionally vague as  I'm not brand biased and have a fair amount of ignorance on the topic of gaming laptops.

 

While I'm not concerned about weight, I do want the portability of a laptop versus a desktop to move the computer from say, the living room to another room or take the laptop and VR headset to a friends house. In other words, I don't mind moving a 7 lbs laptop, but don't want to move a desktop PC, monitor, keyboard, etc.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Look at the Asus G-series 17' models and the Alienware 17 models. The MSI GT series can also be considered but they're not as good as the aforementioned ones.

why would you get a laptop for hl:alyx if you'd need to bring a headset with you and not be able to play while traveling

Just buy a desktop...

Laptop GPUs are crap,my overclocked 1660 easily beats the laptop 2070.

And the cost is insane for laptops,a $1000 laptop + a $1000 desktop is a good combination.

The $1000 desktop will perform significantly better than a $2000 laptop.

There is also all of the tracking equipment that comes with it.
