Reviews for the Rock Xtreme 620

80% Rock Xtreme 620 - 15.4in Gaming Notebook
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Rock's 15.4in gaming notebook outdoes its 17in predecessor in every way and gives other similarly-sized gaming machines a run for their money. It's well-built and looks the part too, while striking a nice balance between performance and value. Our only real complaint is that it gets somewhat noisy while gaming, but this will probably be drowned out by gunfire and explosions from the impressive speakers.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT:

Based on the G92 core, but only with 96 shaders. The performance should be similar to the 8800M GTX. PureVideo HD supports decoding of HD Videos.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T9600:

High-end dual core CPU and similar to the Core 2 Duo P9700 but with a higher power consumption (35 W versus 28 W). Should be sufficient for all games of 2009.

15.4":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

3.2 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Rock: Rock is a British laptop manufacturer and focusses the UK market.


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