Reviews for the Samsung 770Z7E-S01DE

86% Review Samsung Series 7 Chronos 770Z7E Notebook | Notebookcheck
Beacon of hope. The Series 7 Chronos 770Z7E definitely belongs to the most exciting and most awaited multimedia laptops of 2013. The main attraction is - depending on the view - either the slim metal chassis or the integrated 28 nm GPU. AMD's Radeon HD 8870M competes with Nvidia's powerful Kepler architecture. We took a detailed look at the 17-incher.
83% Samsung Series 7 Chronos review

Samsung’s put together a cracking desktop replacement in the Series 7 Chronos. If you can find an extra £400 in your budget, there’s no question that Apple’s Macbook Pro with Retina display is the classier all-round package, but the Samsung still has plenty going for it. It, too, blends power with an attractive design. Considering the superb Full HD touchscreen, it’s the most refined Windows 8 desktop replacement we’ve seen so far in 2013.

AMD Radeon HD 8870M: Upper middle-class GPU based on the same chip as its Radeon HD 7870M predecessor.

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.  

3635QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1200 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

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.

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

Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.


In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.

83.67%: 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.
