Reviews for the Samsung 770Z7E-S01DE
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.

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.
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.
