Gigabyte P35X V6 review vs my Desktop PC with 970 GTX

So I got one of the new [easyazon_link identifier=”B01KB8RCL0″ locale=”US” tag=”vivithemage-20″ cart=”n”]Gigabyte P35X v6-PC4K4D[/easyazon_link] laptop from Gigabyte. I chose it because it was not gaming looking, which tended to have lots of colors, and weird angles. I also went to Microcenter and touched a few 1070GTX laptops first (not the P35X, as they do not stock them). They (Asus and MSI brands) all felt very cheap, plasticy, and hollow feeling. My wife also mentioned how plastic they felt, and cheap.

So going home a bit bummed I had wanted a P35X since v2, so I was glad they got some beefy power in it, to replace my desktop which has an i5 4690k, 970 GTX, 1TB Samsung SSD, and 16GB DDR3.

So at first glance here were my numbers:
Csgo – 250 on mirage – 300ish on average in dust2
BF1 – 60/50 medium settings
H1z1 – 70-80ish
Rocket league – 180-200

40-55 db on fan – barely audible imo as it sits under my desktop, but raised up.

OCCT – 320 FPS on laptop 310 FPS on desktop
OCCT – 79C on laptop and 50C on desktop

CSGO laptop – 76C – fan pretty loud like 200-250 fps
Rocket league – 86C – fan pretty lout at like 200-250 fps
H1Z1 laptop – 83C on gpu and cpu – fan pretty loud about 70-80fps

PCMark 2016 Vantage I got 37k on the laptop and 30k on my desktop.

Overall, I am impressed what this thing laptop can handle. One thing I wish Gigabyte did was send over an SSD with NVMe, not this Transcend Sata M.2. If anyone wants some specific benchmarks, let me know. The screen is gorgeous, 4k is awesome. I do not think I could ever go back to FHD/1080p!
