Gaming Laptop Analysis

Is the ASUS ROG Mothership GZ700GX i9-9980HK RTX 2080 Mobile 64GB RAM 1.0TB M.2 4K good as a gaming laptop? Excellent

Processor - With the Core i9-9980HK 8-Core 2.4GHz processor in this laptop its excellent for 2020 gaming, capable of running today’s game processor system requirements. With 8 of CPU cores available, this processor doesn’t have to worry too much about gaming processes bottlenecking as few games will be able to use all of these cores completely

Graphics Card - This laptop graphics card is excellent at running AAA titles released during 2020. The graphics solution in the laptop also has 8GB of VRAM. This is an excellent gamers amount of VRAM and plenty for today’s big games.

System Memory - An excellent amount of system memory, the 64GB is capable of running AAA titles during the 2020 gaming year and we would expect beyond that as well.

Screen Size - The 17.3" panel found in this laptop we would consider an excellent size for modern 2020 AAA games, and the sort of screen size more serious gamers would be looking for.

Refresh Rate - A gaming laptop wants to have a higher refresh rate to accommodate more frames per second(FPS) in the games it runs. The refresh rate is like a hard cap on the games deliverable FPS. The better the refresh rate the more FPS the laptop can deliver in games, up to the panels refresh rate hertz, and then the sharper the in game play is when the player moves about. So with those thoughts in mind and how the refresh rate impacts gaming, the review laptop has an ok refresh rate available to it. The 60Hz is certainly not great though, and if your hardware can deliver better FPS than the refresh rate, then perhaps shop around for a better refresh rate panel.
