Reviews for the Gigabyte P35K

65% Gigabyte P35K-CF4 UltraBlade Review
Source: Kitguru English
The Gigabyte P35K-CF4 UltraBlade has not impressed us at all and we could not recommend that our readers rush out to buy this laptop. Initial issues required us to install a BIOS update and fresh drivers to get the laptop working correctly, although part of the blame may be the way that these samples are rotated to press for many months without regular maintenance. An improved system of ensuring the latest updates and drivers are installed before shipping to the publication would certainly help smooth out the process.

80% A Lean Mean Gaming Machine

The Gigabyte P35K is a relatively thin 15.6-inch gaming laptop with a matte Full HD display and high-power graphics. The Gigabyte P35K has two major drawbacks that are interrelated: overheating and a loud fan. Other than that, it's got everything an on-the-go gamer could want: great processing, graphics, picture quality and sound quality, all in a relatively easy-to-carry frame.

Ultimately this is a decent laptop for gamers, packing some very nice hardware. However the compromises made to keep this thin and light are, in our minds, too great to make this a standout product. The overall design has potential, but Gigabyte needs to spend some time working on the thermal design in order to reduce fan noise, while also coming up with a better solution than just clocking down the CPU to ensure decent battery life. If it can do this, while still keeping the price reasonable, then the P35K could evolve into something special indeed. For now though, this will remain a competent, if flawed, attempt at mixing performance and portability.

To some extent, laptop buying is always about making compromises. At 0.83 inch thick and just under five pounds, there's plenty to like about the Intel Core i7-based Gigabyte P35K. But in the quest to create the lightest 15-inch gaming laptop, some compromises had to be made.

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.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
