A gaming laptop can be quite an oxymoron when you think about it. Since laptops are naturally not all that powerful as compared to a desktop, to have a gaming class laptop would mean bulking it up with the right processor as well as video graphics card, so that would in turn, affect the portability of the laptop. Gigabyte hopes to have run into a viable solution with what they call the ‘world’s lightest’ 15” Haswell gaming laptop in the form of the Gigabyte P35K.
Just how light is it? Apparently, the Gigabyte P35K will tip the scales at just 2.16kg, where it measures a mere 21mm thin. Underneath the hood, you will find an Intel Haswell Core i7 processor, ensuring that the P35K will target gamers as well as 3D designers who are constantly moving around. I know that in this day and age, most of us would work on Ultrabooks that are super thin and light in comparison, but the P35K is powerful enough to run the latest games with its NVIDIA Geforce GTX 765M graphics card that has 2GB of GDDR5 RAM, and is touted to be able to surpass the 3DMark advantage score of P17,800 thanks to its “Ultra Boost” overclocking technology. Other hardware specifications include a 15” Full HD display, enough space to carry up to two 512GB mSATA SSD and two 1TB HDD, and a sandblasted aluminium matte finish with a starting price point of £1,199.99.
