    Hello,

    I've decided that I want to upgrade my current VN7-592G with i7 and GeForce 960M for something newer. Acer is the priority and my only option - because of great screen, speakers and design.

    So here's my question, which one should I choose? I have two options at the moment:

    1. Acer VN7-593G with i5-7300 and GeForce 1060
    2. Acer VN7-793G with i7-7700HQ with GeForce 1050Ti

    15.6 or 17.3" doesn't really matter to me. I want something more futureproof. I'd go then for 593G with GeForce 1060. But I'm not really sure about buying it because of the temperatures. Should I be worried about them?

    I'm currently using 592G which also experienced the thermal throttling issue but it was fixed with the new thermal paste and CPU undervolting.

    Suggestions?

    The 1060 models overheat. It's really not a good option unless you add high-end paste and do heavy undervolting (repasting voids warranty in some cases). Even then it runs near 90*C.

    EDIT: Also keep in mind, the screen on the newer gen Nitro models is a noticeable downgrade from the last gen. I believe the 592G had 100% sRGB and 86% Adobe RGB coverage whereas the new 593G/793G use a screen with 85% sRGB and 56% Adobe RGB coverage. (Source: NoteBookCheck)

    I heard only the first part had this issue. It was fixed. I've checked many reviews and YT channels to gather some more info and some people complain, other don't.

    It depends. There are 3 types of screens available in 593G, same with 793G. The best one gets 91% sRGB. Only the 4k version gets above 100%.

    The problem is with CPU which gets hot. The one with 1060 GPU has i5. Should be cooler than the i7 version.

    you need to repaste with a good thermal compound like thermal grizzly kryonaut

    If it voids the warranty then I'll pass. 793G got a better screen? Maybe it's an option. I don't play really demanding games. Mostly CS:Go, Diablo 3, Civ6, etc.

    The problem is the 1060. Both the i5 7300HQ and i7 7700HQ are 45W chips (i7 is binned better) so if it has a 1060 and hasn't been repasted, it will throttle hard. As for the screen, it's a gamble from what I've seen on which model you get.

    UHD will be good for sure but it's unavailable in my country. Nevertheless, I don't want a laptop with 4k screen. Even 1060 has a problem with maintaining it.

    My 592G got LP156WF6-SPB1 panel from LG Philips installed. It's not that good, sRGB is only 82% according to Notebookcheck.
