    Wanted to see if there was any 3D marks scores with a 7700hq and 1060. But found something interesting with the pictures.
    Basically games comparison and there's the model with the 6700hq and newer model with 7700hq.
    Not all games will see it. But some will.

    Not worth the change to all. But if I'll notice it...I'll take it.

    Very tight fit near perfect cut outs. Came with panels to cover everything except the bottom but Ive just stuck to the bits as per the photos - I dont want it to look like something that should belong in a Batmobile.
    I got it here:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/122284970...49&var=422770847670&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    Delivered to UK from China in about 10 days and much sooner than advertised.

    Cool. I would only want to cover the top though. I think this guy only sells it as a set?

    Depending on how CPU intensive the game is those findings arent surprising considering one would expect a 5-10% perf increase with Kaby lake just by virtue of its higher stock clock speeds.

    I doubt the seller would split it. But no harm asking. The shapes are stuck on A3 backing plastic sheet. I was only going to put it on the hand rest bits and top (which was already getting scuffed) but couldn't resist covering the bezel.

    Exactly. But there was those that thought the upgrade to go through the hassle of having the new cpu was not worth it. Just showing that it might actually be.
    If I liked batman then that would please me even if I wouldn't notice it. But I do like GTA so that'll help.
