With all these changes taking place in the gaming sector, where can you find the ultimate gaming laptop, the most powerful motherboard of all extreme machines? The best gaming performance for the money?
Where to look? Where to start the search?
Every gamer can tell you the heart of any gaming laptop is the graphics card. You must get the most powerful graphics or GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) if you want your gaming system to perform to the max.
Now everything is coming up dual!
If one card is good, two must be better! You can now get gaming systems with twin or dual graphics with over a Gig of memory. You must also have a way to handle all this power so look for PCI-Express with SLI (Scalable Link Interface) systems.
Don’t skimp your pennies here, try to get the best Graphics possible – a lot of gamers go for the high end GPUs such as ATI Mobility Radeon or NVIDIA GeForce Go series. Usually the higher the number the better performance it will deliver.
Know Your RAM
RAM is very important in a gaming laptop mainly because, as with any computer, RAM will largely determine how fast it will perform. Same as with your graphics card, go for the highest RAM possible. Know the difference between ordinary RAM and Video RAM. The latter is very tanjalippertphotography important for running and getting full enjoyment out of your extreme gaming laptop.
Helping to speed everything up, high end gaming laptops now come with dual core processors, most gamers go for Intel or AMD processors. Go with a SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) hard drive with the highest storage and speed you can afford.
If Money Is No Object
If you want the ultimate gaming laptop you will probably have to pay a hefty price for top performance. The ultimate gaming laptop is really a luxury item where price is never much of a consideration in the first place. For those lucky few where money is no object (These creatures do roam the earth I am told!), searching out the best laptop money can buy must be a pleasant task.
Your hunt would no doubt begin with some of the top gaming brands such as Alienware (now owned by Dell), Voodoo (now a part of HP) and Rock Direct, a UK Laptop Company.
Let’s face it, these high end gaming laptop manufacturers are mainly selling style and looks at a premium price. Many people criticize this as style over substance, most of these companies are using the same gaming components shipped in from Taiwan and assembling them into neat little gaming (marketing) packages.
