However, an external PC or Laptop can be connected and displayed through the USB, HDMI or VGA input ports available on the display unit. It does lack from popularity but its digital signal connection carries the same resolution as that of the level of HDMI or DVI. If your monitor supports it, you can set virtually any crazy resolution you want. It can be not vital that in just about every generating game you may really have to race versus other player yet you can get to know how to accomplish line initial. As things get expensive, there is a lesser inclination towards buying them. For other modifications to your computer, there is component-modification, such as adding a window to a hard drive. Students like to use their laptops for note taking purposes, so it is most practical for students to look more closely at laptops with efficient hard drive space. And if it’s a Lenovo Legion laptop with an AMD processor inside that you’re after (and you have a bigger budget to work with), have a look at our Lenovo Legion 5 Pro review. First, know your budget. If your budget for a gaming laptop sits at about a grand, do yourself a solid and check out this Lenovo Legion 5 configuration that’s on sale at Newegg.
Overall, it’s a good configuration for the money. So there’s a lot to like about in the Intel NUC X15, but I wanted to talk about it because there’s a good chance next year that Intel will have something like the NUC X15 fit with its own discrete Xe graphics silicon, Alchemist. That’s a last-gen GPU, sure, but it’s a good one in the sub-$1,000 space. We wouldn’t put much stock in the Geekbench 5 results just yet since it is going to be pre-production, and likely an unfinished version of the GPU, so it wouldn’t make sense to start drawing comparisons with what Nvidia and AMD have out. With up to an RTX 3070 GPU, a QHD 165Hz screen, and an optical mechanical keyboard on board-well, I would be pretty excited if this is something of a template for Intel’s mobile Xe-HPG Alchemist gaming laptops next year, to say the least.

Perhaps then it’s not an exact template of what’s to come, but Intel has to be thinking about getting Xe out to the world upon its arrival early next year, and I’d be surprised if we didn’t see something awfully similar when that happens. Twitter user Benchleaks spotted benchmark scores for an “Intel Xe” GPU this week, and a closer look at the specs makes it evident that we are looking at an Intel Alchemist GPU for laptops. The scores reveal an Intel Xe GPU with 512 EUs and a clock frequency of 1.8GHz, which is pretty high for a mobile GPU. Intel has not yet hinted at pricing, but we’re hoping it will be competitive with AMD and Nvidia’s offerings. Rumours suggest Intel’s top Alchemist GPU will compete with Nvidia’s RTX 3070, which so happens to be the top spec of the NUC X15. The first Alchemist GPU to hit the market is rumored to be on par with the RTX 3070 in terms of performance.
Though Alchemist is still a little way out, it has not stopped Intel from making news in the GPU world. This laptop is built around an Intel Core i7 10750H Comet Lake processor (6C/12T, 2.6GHz to 5GHz, 12MB of L3 cache) and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. This Lenovo Legion 5 pairs an 8-core/16-thread Comet Lake CPU with a reasonably fast GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. The system with the GPU also appears to be running on a Tiger Lake CPU (which is a mobile chip) and that pretty much tells us it’s a laptop chip. But otherwise, the GTX 1660 Ti is a strong GPU for laptop gaming. Ideally, I’d like to see laptop makers offer 16GB as a baseline on any laptop geared towards gaming, save for maybe ultra-affordable ones. However, it’s nice that laptop makers have largely moved on from pinching pennies by sticking paltry 256GB SSDs into their systems (they’re still out there, just far less common these days).
