HINDI
By Mithun Mohandas | Price Updated on 24-Sep-2020

Gaming laptops, there's isn't a better platform to game on aside from it. The platform as a whole is fortified with regular hardware updates every 6-8 months making it way ahead of every other platform out there. And as consoles come closer to the PC in terms of the hardware architecture, you have more of those "console exclusives" coming to the PC segment. Gaming laptops might seem like a compromise compared to the desktop but in these last two years we've seen some cutting edge technological innovations with gaming laptops that have brought it into the same league as gaming desktops. These days, a gaming laptop is characterised by having the best Intel or AMD gaming CPU, high refresh-rate panels that are either 120Hz, 144Hz, 200Hz or even as high as 300 Hz. Whether you want a high-end gaming laptop for GTA 5 or a cheap gaming laptop for Fortnite, we've got you covered. The gaming laptops featured in this list form the top 10 (if not Top 5) gaming laptops that are sold in India. The price for gaming laptops starts as low as Rs 50,000 for the cheap laptops for gaming and can go as high as Rs 8,00,000 for the top gaming laptops. Most of these laptops (from the likes of ASUS, MSI, Alienware, Dell, Lenovo, HP and Acer) have been tested by us at Digit and have truly earned their place in this list of the best gaming laptops to buy in India.

Sporting a desktop graphics Intel Core i9-9900K coupled with an RTX 2080, the MSI GT76 TITAN 9SG has the same configuration as the Alienware Area-51m. Both machines use massive power bricks which when plugged in trigger an automatic factory overclock of 32-33% for the processors. Even the graphics cards are the same RTX 2080 but MSI has a slightly higher base clock of 1575 MHz whereas the Alienware unit has that set to 1515 MHz. Boost clocks are also different with the MSI unit clocked at 1755 MHz and the Alienware at 1720 MHz. So performance wise, these two are nearly similar until you consider the next two important things in a computer, the RAM and the SSD boot drives. MSI’s gaming laptop has RAM clocked at 2666 MHz and uses two NVMe SSDs in RAID 0 for the boot drive.

The Alienware Area-51m was certainly the first of its kind to have the desktop grade Intel Core i9-9900K coupled with NVIDIA’s RTX 2080. However, as time goes by competitors brought similar configurations with slightly improved features. When powered on, the Area-51m automatically sets the processor to a 32% overclock which helps out with some video games and a lot more in high-compute tasks. The built-in Control Centre has made it even simpler to push the processor clocks higher should you need it.

The Asus Zephyrus S (GX531) manages to get a few things very right. It packs a very powerful set of components into a slim chassis, ideal for those who like to carry their gaming or editing machines around. The Pantone validated 144Hz display is great right out of the box. the keyboard will take plenty of getting used to, but the trackpad is definitely a strong point. All this aside, the GX531 is also a pretty great gaming machine.

MSI does not have a dual GTX 1080 gaming laptop. Instead, it has the next best thing for roughly half the price of the two flagships. The GT83VR 7RE Titan SLI packs two GTX 1070 GPUs in SLI along with the Intel Core i7 7820HK. It also has a massive 18.4-inch IPS display and 32 GB of RAM. Performance wise it isn't that far behind since games can hardly make use of all the firepower it has, but synthetic benchmarks put it way behind the two flagships mentioned here.
