Reviews for the Gigabyte P34G

81% Review Gigabyte P34G Notebook | Notebookcheck
Bold concept. It is almost insane to put a GeForce GTX 760M into a thin 14-inch notebook, but Gigabyte does it anyway and the result is surprisingly good. Read our in-depth review for all the details.

It is 33x23.5x1.8cm and weights 1765grams. This is a smaller notebook offering from Gigabyte that comes with Windows 8. Whilst I did all the necessary updates this time I resisted the offer to upgrade to Windows 8.1. I instead completed my review with just what was delivered and the updates.

83% Gigabyte P34G v2 review
Source: PC Pro English
The P34G v2 packs more performance into its compact chassis than any comparably portable laptop we've come across. It could be more attractive, and the display more finely calibrated, but these are small complaints. The Gigabyte P34G v2 isn't only every gamer's ideal laptop; with top-flight performance in a sub-2kg chassis, and a very reasonable price, it's a portable that deserves the attention of anyone with a need for speed.

80% Gigabyte P34G review For the price, this gaming laptop packs a powerful punch
Source: Techradar English
The Gigabyte P34G might not look or feel all that luxurious, but after a week with this power-packed gaming laptop, I felt spoiled by its performance. When it comes down to parts for pennies, this system goes uncontested. And that the P34G can play Titanfall at the highest settings with no problem makes me confident in its lasting power. While you won't get the flashy lights of the Alienware 14 or the slick build of the Razer Blade, you'll pay less for the same gaming experience and then some, framerate wise. You'll want to use a mouse, even when you're just poking around the web, and having a nice mechanical keyboard waiting for it on your desk wouldn't hurt either.

80% Gigabyte P34G gaming laptop
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Gigabyte’s P34G is a superb alternative to the ultra-bulky models common in the gaming laptop world. Despite being a third lighter than, and half as thick as, Dell’s closely-comparable Alienware 14, the P34G averages just 6% lower in performance. If getting the highest performance, and running games at the best graphical settings possible, is your goal, this isn’t your laptop.

It's rare for a gaming laptop to tick all the right boxes. Performance, portability, style, battery life, the display and the keyboard are just some of the factors that typically partake in the juggling act. At first glance, Gigabyte's P34G comes close to striking all the right notes, and the specification reads like an enthusiast's dream.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M: Performance class graphics card of the GeForce GTX 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

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

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.  


4700HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.768 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


Gigabyte: GIGABYTE Technology is a Taiwan-based manufacturer of computer hardware products best known for its motherboards. Established in 1986, its major customers include custom boutique PC manufacturers such as Alienware. Secondary lines in the company's product portfolio include complete PCs, laptops, optical drives, LCD monitors, keyboards, mice, cooling components, mobile phones and high end mobile phone products (PDA phone, TV phone etc.), networking equipment, power supplies, and a line of barebone mid and full sized ATX computer cases. Gigabyte laptop reviews are rare and the global laptop market share low.


82.22%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
