    The x14 looks really pretty, but the GPU options sounds meh when the Razer Blade 14 has RTX 3080 already and Asus G14 has the new 6800s.

    @Mike James also 3050 is not built for qhd, you can run it for sure but expect to set quality level to low/medium for AAA titles

  • mcslender

    @Mike James starting price is around 1800 usd for the 3050 configuration, which imo is a joke when even Razer can give you rtx 3060 for that price. Plus I'm concerned more about the choices for top end config, which is not related to actual performance of all offered configs.

    @Mani every goddamm laptop that is popular enough will have faulty items sometimes, i had razer laptops that never had any issues and i have currently a G14 and it's amazing, zero problems with temps and performance, don't make your judgement on the 1% (that usually can be fixed with warranty), i had many years ago an asus with coil whine and they sent me a new one with zero noise

    @Marc Dave 3080ti is 100w so it won't be much of a performance beast. No one is expecting one in a 14 inch chassis though. Definitely excited for the Zephyrus refresh though. G15 was my favorite of 2021

  • JustIN Tech Tips

    Great video! One correction though. The X17 you mentioned also has soldered RAM. That’s the case with the x15 but the x17 is actually slotted upgradable RAM

    At 2:10 we claimed that Alienware's X17 R2 has soldered RAM, but it has two DDR5 SO-DIMM slots. Thanks to all who pointed it out. We regret the error.

    I feel like Concept Nyx is something that already exists. I already do it with Steam-Link, Nvidia Gamestream/Moonlight and a bunch of other apps. It's nothing new. That being said, having it work with multiple game launchers require quite a bit of tinkering so if they come up with an easier way of doing it, good on them.

  • Nate Ford

    The X14 is really disappointing due to the GPU options… or lack thereof. It would be a quick buy if it had a 100w 3070

    The X14's arrow keys and right-shift layout is 🤮 Having empty spaces above the right and left arrow keys is basically essential if anyone plans to use this as a software development + gaming notebook. People don't want to stare at their keyboards to use them. 😑

  • Jonathan Baird
    Jonathan Baird16 วันที่ผ่านมา

    1440p? So an OLED version of a monitor they came out with 4+ years ago? That's fine for gaming, but 2160p 120hz+ would be better for day-to-day productivity. EDIT: I'm referring to the 34" monitor, not the laptop.

    @Zip Zip Again, people with desk jobs do more than game with their monitors. I love my games, but I also love text not being a blurry mess while I'm performing my job. Anything below 200ppi this day and age is difficult to look at. The specs on this monitor are *almost* perfect, just need a resolution spec bump.

    4k ultrawide is really only worth it at like 38" or bigger imo. I feel like 3440x1440 for 34" is a good size for native scaling in windows. Plus it means you can actually use that 175hz in more games than if it were 3840x1600 or even higher resolution.
