    I really don't think the Iris Pro adds any noticeable extra heat - TDP is identical to the standard HD-equipped CPUs. Someone prove me wrong!

    I also think throttle talk is overdone because the fact is, despite CPU throttling, it plays all the latest and greatest games amazingly well :)

    I for one don't care much about the CPU throttle, it never bothers me, and did not have significant effects on the gaming experience.

    hello guys,

    the gigabyte P35w v3 just came out here in canada, should i go for gs60 2qe or this one?
    the p35 is upgradable, you can upgrade it yourself very easily, but it has weaker wifi, lan,
    screen, keyboard, weight and the hd that it gives is only 5400rpm also 8gb ram only.

    I think I'm with you on that one. It doesn't seem that bad. But I'm more concerned about prolonged 90c temps, and the effect it has on the longevity of the components.

    Hdd is 7200 on mine so maybe check that with seller, wireless is AC but Intel which some hat had issues with. Lan should be the same? After that its down to preference on battery/weight and looks etc.

    thank you guys, they are about the same price, its 5400rpm for sure, damn,, GS60 uses killer lan and wireless so its better i think,, i dont really care about the battery, cos both are not supposed to last more than 2.5 hours i guess,,,, i used to hate the msi shield, but i figured i can order some 3d aluminum sticker to cover it

    My P35W v3 CF1 (bought in UK) also shows the HD as 7200rpm.

    I actually owned the msi gs 60 ghost, the track pad was crap, the battery was crap, and the cpu hit high temps just like the p35 which is to be expected as its the same cpu and it has very similar cooling. The only thing that was better on the msi was the keyboard. Its definitely a good laptop but id take the p35w v3 over it 7 days a week.
