Thread Details

Hi

CUKUSA have 10% off on all their stuff through the 22.9. They have some of the new gaming laptops like the MSI GS43VR and Asus GL502VM/VS (1060/1070), so something like $150-$170 can be reduced from the price

Important to note that they ship the laptops with DDR4 2133MHZ RAM, and it could be a limiting factor in the GTX 1070 case, even the 1060

Example:

DDR4 ram speed won't bottleneck any current graphics card even at the lowest clock (2133 Mhz)

I don't remember where I so the test, but for example
https://www.techpowerup.com/revie...GTZ/7.html. Check the last one. There is *some* difference with a GTX 980.

Anyway, nothing too crucial

Yeah, around 3-4% increase in fps but the difference in Mhz is more than 80% between 2133 and 3866 mhz, which is not available in laptop yet. I think the highest ram frequency of ram in a laptop is 2400 mhz.

So, nothing significant at all.

na, the 3000MHZ is good too, maybe even the 2800MHZ.
And again, that's with GTX 980. With an 1070 it might be worse. Maybe 4K will make it more pronounced too. I don't know

The result is kind of wierd because sometimes the lower frequency one gets the highest score.

Yea. Probably it's better to check more benchmarks. I simply remember clear results on this matter

Anyway, not such a big deal. Just wanted to mention it

on the contrary. At higher resolutions/detail the difference would be much smaller because the GPU will not be able to produce as many frames which in turns means that the RAM/CPU will not have to process as many frames. Notice their game benchmark of 200+ frames in MLL meaning they are running a very low resolution and low detail to augment the cpu/memory bottleneck so bottom line is if you're running 200+ fps in a game then yeah there will be a difference otherwise at higher resolutions higher visuals you know 60 or so frames, you will not notice any if you theoretically swap out different memory modules.

Edit: check out this article. Once you mimic a more "realistic" 60fps to 100 fps scenario, how the difference between different memory sticks is a lot smaller.

Thanks!
That's true that generally higher graphics settings = more GPU stress relatively to the CPU. However, as games become more and more loaded, more graphics can also mean more stuff to render and the CPU does have to do more work, if the GPU is fast enough

I'll try to look for the specific cases that it happens. Anyway, I just mentioned it for people to know. Not that important, but with GPUs like the GTX 1070 and up, the CPU is more loaded

It's on their homepage - 5% automatically + 5% with something like "BYESUMMER"

Newegg will tell you to go suck an egg. Lol

They aren't the greatest w price matching.

Can you send it back for a refund?
