    If that's how your laptop runs then there's something wrong with it. BF1 will run no problem whatsoever at more than 60 FPS 1080P with a 7700HQ and GTX 1070 BGA, I have a 970M and 6700HQ in one of my work laptops and even that has no problems maintaining a > V-Sync FPS.

    Here's a video showing a desktop running the game on an i5 6500 (weaker than a 7700HQ) and a gtx 970 at 1080p with ultra settings. It stays above 60fps in most cases.

    None of you guys except Mobius have a clue waht you're talking about, especially the rep who magically decides the cpu is busted (they unsurprisingly want to sell these units), despite sitting well above base clock with an undervolt and running at high usage.

    That map in the video is a light one, runs fine. Even Argonne isn't too bad, but it does drop well below 60fps in certain choke points.

    Amiens is a total **** show, no where near 60fps in the centre. That big desert map drops well below 60fps in the town.

    You can drop the graphics down to low and the fps remains virtually constant. It is profound a case of cpu limitation you will ever see in a game at reasonable resolution.

    So consumers should be aware that they are buying a laptop which will play above 60fps 1080p most of the time, but is going to tank when you need it most in many recent titles that scale well with cpu.

    Vermintide 2 is no good, then there are the poorly coded games (with great gameplay) that need cpu grunt to get to a halfway reasonable fps (Rising Storm 2 (awesome game but an absolute mess), Arma 3, Squad etc).

    Less demanding or better coded (tho you can't say BF1 is poorly coded) titles are fine, eg. Fornite (rubbish) or stuff like Doom probably.

    It is also obvious to any reasonable observer that cpu limitation won't get better with new titles, unless the graphics advance so much that a 1070 is well and truly undergunned and limits the cpu, in which case the entire system is outdated and that is that for the soldered laptop.

    The real issue with all these laptops is the recalcitrant thermal throttling at high usage. Threaded games work the cpu nearly as hard as Prime95, and single core pigs like RS2 aren't far off.

    You could spend another grand on whatever cpu, but it shows some contempt for the buyers when a multi-thousand dollar 'gaming laptops' have cooling solutions which aren't very useful.

    These laptops are all ugly bricks and semi-portable at best, surely there is a market for bigger and uglier laptops that actually maintain stock speed under load.

    @Prema the MSI GS65 is a 15.6" in a 14" chassis if that counts.

    Now where are you seeing the CPU not perform to stock Intel speeds?

    THX, will check it out...
    The only 8th gen 13/14" I could find was the new Gigabyte Aero 14, but they downgraded the 1060 to a 1050TI in the re-fresh...a better CPU for a worse GPU, so meh.

    is the N850EP6 too good to be true at that price point?
