80% Cizmo Qi1840 - Présentation
Source: Pocketables English
Pour ses performances de haut vol même si des drivers récents et performants font défaut, pour tout ce que peuvent en plus proposer les cartes graphiques NVIDIA (PhysX, CUDA, etc.) mais pour quelques petits défauts de conception qui mettent ce Cizmo Qi1840 en cran en dessous de la concurrence sur le secteur, nous octroyons à ce Cizmo Qi1840 la note de 4 sur 5.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285M:

Essentially a minimally higher-clocked GTX 280M based on the same G92b core with an overall performance increase of about 3-6%.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


18.4": 18 inch display size is a rare and very big size for desktop-replacement laptops. Laptops with 18 inch displays did not exist before 2008. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


4.9 kg: This laptop is heavy. Especially desktop replacements with 19 inch display fit in this class of weight. This class is too heavy, even for 17 inch DTR.


Cizmo: Cizmo is a small German laptop shop with own brand and international focusing.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
