    After realizing that notebooks seem to perform absolutely different I thought:
    "Why not make a thread that takes user benchmarks and puts notebooks against each other?"

    Now I have a few requirements on this, to keep it useful, simple and informative.

    Lets start with the games which we will be testing:
    - Witcher 3
    - DOOM
    - PubG
    - Fortnite
    - Crysis 3
    - Tomb Raider DX 12
    - Deus EX DX 12
    - Shadows of mordor

    Rules:
    - All games have to be set to ultra(or simply highest) preset and run at the resolution of 1080p (for simplicity and most compatibility).
    - If a game has a benchmarking tool, use it instead of gameplay.
    - If a game does not have a benchmarking tool, start a new game and record the first 20min of gameplay.
    - Use an overlay such as MSI afterburner or HWInfo64, showcasing at least temps of GPU + CPU, clockspeeds GPU + CPU, CPU/GPU usage, vRAM usage, Voltage and RAM usage.
    - System must be as stock as possible. (meaning no OC on hardware, Custom BIOS such as prema is allowed, vBIOS that upps the power limit of pascal cards is however not allowed, unless u do the OC part.)
    - Post a link with the Game, your model and which hardware you have and possibly the mods you have done (repaste, cutting holes to improve vent etc.).
    - If you want, post an Optimized/OC version of the same settings to show the potential of your system you're welcome to do so, however stock is so far the priority.

    The whole point of this is to see which notebooks tend to over and which tend to underperform. And we will also figure out how much certain OCs, Mods etc. really do to each game.

    This thread is there to showcase people what they actually get for their money and show them the performance they can expect with their purchase. Also desktop benchmarks are also appriecated, since people then can actually see the differences between a real desktop and a DTR(specifically looking at your rig @Mr. Fox ).

    If I have forgotten a game that is good for benchmarking, let me know, I'll add it to the list if it is indeed a good benchmarking game.

    Since some people here are competitive, I'll also do a ranking list for each benchmark in each GPU series to Game series, so GTX 1060, GTX 1070, GTX 1080, GTX 1080TI, SLI or not will also be seperate. So some people can have the bragging rights of the actual best performing gaming notebook / desktop.

    So vSync or Gsync is okay? Or should we use custom ultra with Vsync/Gsync OFF?

    No vsync or gsync due to them limiting performance.

    What about locking the cpu to its rated turbo boost?

    That would be under the OC/optimized. if the notebook stock throttles around, then that's what people get.

    This is a good idea, maybe i'll download Fortnite and see how my 5870s get utterly demolished, lol.

    Also, do you mean Rise of the Tomb Raider DX 12? Tomb Raider from a couple of years before is DX 11 unless i'm mistaken.

    • Witcher 3 is difficult to benchmark consistently due to its open-world design because environmental factors such ToD, NPCs, and location can have a marked affect on performance (e.g. Novigrad City is CPU-intensive, Crookback Bog is GPU-intensive)
    • Doom (OGL/Vulkan), DX:MD (DX11/DX12), RotTR (DX11/DX12) should be run using whichever API produces the best performance on the user's system (also users not on Windows 10 cannot use DX12)
    • PUBG and Fortnite BR are impossible to benchmark consistently due to the nature of their gameplay
    • Doom and SoM (ultra texture pack) require at least 4GB VRAM at their highest settings
    • DX:MD requires at least 6GB VRAM at its highest settings
    • The built-in benchmark in DX:MD is GPU-bound and not indicative of actual performance demand in the hub world, which stresses CPU/RAM throughput and disk speed far more

    I only have IGPU... does that work? can I just show benchmarks for the asus ux330cak
    and its intel hd 615

    Let's say, we will use high settings for all games/applications above and with specs stated/attached along with the results (using CPUz/GPUz/or whatever you feel comfortable with) and the game settings (if applicable)
    For laptop that cannot achieve the requirement for the high settings, they will be run at a bit lower (working) settings with (also) their specs attached along the result and the game settings (if applicable)
    For laptop cannot run specific games, state the reason that the laptop doesn't allow to do such thing (heat, limited storage or something else)
    Specs included CPU, RAM, dGPU (and/or) iGPU, SSD (and/or) HDD (state which drive that the game(s) is(are) installed to), Network devices (for online games)
    Since the performance are different to everyone even they have the same specs, this may help.
