Few manufacturers are interested in building a compact, 14-inch gaming laptop. In the past few years, only MSI, Alienware, Clevo, Gigabyte and Razer decided to construct such notebooks. With its GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of VRAM, the Razer Blade is one of the slimmest, VR-ready laptops available. Similar to many other gaming laptops, the Blade is outfitted with a 2.6-GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor with 16GB of RAM. The powerful CPU is more than capable of handling whatever multitasking you can throw at it. I’ve been able to run most games with full ultra settings comfortably at 1080. Witcher 3, 1080 with ultra (hairworks turned off) and it can comfortably run at 55-60 FPS. Arkham knight was running at 50+ FPS at around 54+ FPS at 1080. Tomb Raider (2013) ran the benchmark at 60FPS when on ultimate. GTA V I turned everything to max, 1080, and ran it and got (FPS per pass) 42, 36, 43, 47, and 46. I also turned down a few options and reran it at 1080 and got 59, 60, 60, 60, and 59. If you want to turn up the resolution a bit, you can, but it will be a tradeoff of which settings you need to turn down (obviously). The Razer Blade’s 256GB PCI-e SSD is fairly fast, taking only 24 second to duplicate 4.97GB of multimedia files for a transfer rate of 212.1 megabytes per second. That’s enough to beat the 153.1MBps category average and the P55W’s (128GB M.2 SSD) 124.1MBps.

Best Overall Gaming Laptop

Asus ROG Strix GL502VS-DB71 15.6″ Full­HD Gaming Laptop

Overall a good laptop for the price with only a couple of minor flaws, with a profile measuring just 0.94 inches and weighing only 4.8 pounds, ROG Strix GL502 has an ultra-portable design that fits snugly in a messenger bag or backpack, so you can game just about anywhere. An i7-6700 HQ, 16GB of ram and most importantly an Nvidia GTX 1060 (mobile, obviously) processor, running a solid framerate for most current games at 1080p.

I have absolutely nothing to complain about performance. This thing travels at warp speed! Windows installed from start to finish in about 15 minutes, takes about 4 seconds to load to a workable desktop, and about 3-4 seconds to shut completely down. As for gaming, the games I play ((Diablo 3, League of Legends, Final Fantasy XIV, etc) don’t really put too much of a strain on the graphics, and I knew before testing that I would be able to run all of them maxed out. No surprises here thanks to good research. With the GTX 1070, you can pretty much play any game you want on ultra settings. The performance of this machine is on the level of desktops and its fantastic. The extra RAM also helps with multi-tasking and what-not. I did not get the one with the SSD as it will be cheaper to add one later, but it’s nice to find a laptop with a 7200rpm HDD, which is still just fine.
