Whether you’re upgrading or starting off with your first gaming laptop, pick one that packs the latest technology
Laptops have revolutionised the world of computing – and consequently, the world of gaming as well. If you’re an avid gamer but need to be mobile, a gaming laptop can offer all the right things to you. Packing hardware capable of running the latest games without a hitch, the newest models available also support technology that makes your device future proof. Real-time ray tracing is one such feature that is gaining a lot of traction ever since it was introduced with NVIDIA’s RTX range of graphics cards. Its compatibility was later expanded to turing-based or higher cards as well. Hence, if your laptop supports it, rest assured that it will be able to extract the most stunning visuals from many games that are available now and are to be launched in the future. Here are some impressive gaming laptops available on Amazon that come with support for Ray Tracing.
The Lenovo Legion Y540 comes with a 9th gen i5 processor from Intel and the NVIDIA GTX 1650 graphics card, which promise a decent experience with all the new games that you want to play. Contrary to what is often the case with gaming laptops, the Legion Y540 sports a sleek build. It is 24mm thick and quite lightweight at 2.3kg, making it easier to take your gaming laptop anywhere you need to. The display also packs some impressive specifications. The 15.6-inch screen sports an FHD resolution, along with 144Hz refresh rate and 300-nits of brightness, all of which assures you of a really impressive visual experience for your gaming.
The first thing you might notice with the MSI GS65 Stealth-004 are the thin 4.9mm bezels on the sides of its 15.6-inch FHD screen, which also supports a refresh rate of up to 144Hz. These specifications, along with the RTX 2070 8G Max-Q, should make your gaming experience seamlessly immersive and buttery smooth. In addition to that, the model also pays extra attention to the keyboard and touchpad. While the keyboard features Steelseries per-Key RGB with Anti-Ghosting, the touchpad is larger than previous models and promises better performance. The per-key RGB feature allows a great degree of customisation of your keyboard keys. A 256GB SSD also keeps your load times low.
Featuring a Ryzen 7-3750H backed by a 6GB NVIDIA RTX 2060 graphics card, the TUF R7 from ASUS promises to perform well with the latest games as well as software. The battery promises to last 5.3 hours with continuous 1080p video playback, which can be quite a lot for many users. The laptop also promises great durability since it has passed the MIL-STD-810G tests, which assure the ability to survive solar radiation exposure, high altitude, and temperature extremes, as well as accidental knocks. To complete the package visually, the model comes with a Gold Steel metal plastic exterior with a brushed finish.
The ROG Zephyrus S GX531 from ASUS aims to take your gaming performance to the next level. Powered by a 9th gen i7 processor, the laptop also features an NVIDIA RTX 2070 Max-Q 8GB graphics card. To complement these, it also comes with a whopping 24GB of RAM. This combination promises to be more than enough to future proof your laptop for new and upcoming games and software. At 15.35~16.15mm thickness, it also manages to do so while remaining quite portable. The display on the ROG Zephyrus also is very high end with a refresh rate of up to 240Hz and a 3ms grey-to-grey response time that promises blur-free smooth visuals and low latency.
