Familiar hardware. Old hat or still recommendable? This is the question for the Quadro GPUs K1100M, K3100M and K5100M, which are still not based on the current Maxwell architecture. Right before the launch of the successor, we once again put these three chips through our benchmarks.

HP Omen Pro 15 Workstation Review

84% HP Omen Pro 15 Workstation Review

Mobile workplace. The HP Omen Pro is a very exclusive workstation with a serious premium claim. While the design and the mobility leave a good impression right away, you only get old hardware components. We checked if the combination is convincing nonetheless.

Asus AsusPro Essential P751JF Notebook Review

78% Asus AsusPro Essential P751JF Notebook Review

All-rounder with minor drawbacks. The new, relatively low-priced desktop replacement laptop from the AsusPro series does not have any really striking features. It is not a specialized device, but rather a solid multimedia all-rounder with some business qualities, which is also suitable for gaming and does everything quite decently, but nothing exceptionally well.
Intel Core i5-4210M | NVIDIA GeForce 930M | 17.3" | 3 kg
Lenovo IdeaPad Y50-70 (GTX 960M, FHD) Notebook Review

85% Lenovo IdeaPad Y50-70 (GTX 960M, FHD) Notebook Review

Lenovo created a balanced bundle. Recently, the Y50-70 proved to be a good entry into the mobile gaming world.

MSI PE60 2QE Prestige Notebook Review

84% MSI PE60 2QE Prestige Notebook Review

Elvis. Great voice, appealing performance and best entertainment value. The Prestige series aims to impress consumers and business users alike with its luxury features. Will it manage to do that with the standard tools? The manufacturer has eliminated the classic MSI vulnerable "keyboard", a wise decision that makes us happy.
Intel Core i5-4210H | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M | 15.6" | 2.3 kg
Asus G501JW (FHD) Notebook Review

85% Asus G501JW (FHD) Notebook Review

Slim gamer. Recently, we reviewed Asus' new member of the ROG series, the high-end US model. Our current model for the German market is about 600 Euros (~$672) cheaper but makes compromises in features. Nevertheless, it even performs partly better than the more expensive model we reviewed.
Intel Core i7-4720HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M | 15,6" | 2 kg
MSI WT72 Workstation Review

87% MSI WT72 Workstation Review

Crackerjack. MSI's GT70 workstation managed seventh place in our workstation ranking. Now we have the successor, MSI's WT72, with a new casing, better screen and optimized performance to test. The following report shows just how well the powerhouse scores overall.
Intel Core i7-4980HQ | NVIDIA Quadro K4100M | 17.3" | 3.7 kg

Alienware 15 (R9 M295X) Notebook Review

85% Alienware 15 (R9 M295X) Notebook Review

Comeback. The mobile high-end market is dominated by Intel and Nvidia. Alienware is one of the few manufacturer who offers GPUs from AMD as well. We ordered the 15-inch version of the notebook with the GTX-970M-rival Radeon R9 M295X to check out the performance.
Intel Core i7-4710HQ | AMD Radeon R9 M295X | 15.6" | 3.1 kg

Asus N751JX Notebook Review

85% Asus N751JX Notebook Review

Premium desktop replacement. The Asus N751JX lends oneself as a replacement for the home desktop PC. Overall, it performs well. However, with a price tag of about 1200 Euros (~$1351), it is not a bargain.
Intel Core i7-4720HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M | 17.3" | 3.4 kg
Schenker W724 (Clevo P370SM-A) Notebook Review

83% Schenker W724 (Clevo P370SM-A) Notebook Review

Two GPUs. Schenker’s 17-inch Workstation is available with two Nvidia graphics cards in an SLI configuration. Read the review to find out whether the quality and the performance of the W724 can keep up with other dual-GPU laptops such as the Aorus X7 Pro or the MSI GT80.

HP 350 G1 (2015) Notebook Review

77% HP 350 G1 (2015) Notebook Review

Intel Pentium 3558U | Intel HD Graphics (Haswell) | 15.6" | 2.3 kg
Apple MacBook Pro Retina 15 (Mid 2015) Review

88% Apple MacBook Pro Retina 15 (Mid 2015) Review

Expensive pleasure. More performance, a new Force Touch TrackPad as well as longer battery runtimes are supposed to make the reworked MacBook Pro 15 even more appealing – and therefore justify a retail price far in excess of the 2000 Euros (~$2252) mark. Is this enough to compete with the improved rivals?
Intel Core i7-4870HQ | AMD Radeon R9 M370X | 15.4" | 2 kg
Face Off: Dell XPS 13 vs. Apple MacBook Pro 13 vs. Asus ZenBook UX305

Face Off: Dell XPS 13 vs. Apple MacBook Pro 13 vs. Asus ZenBook UX305

Face Off: Aorus X3 Plus vs. Gigabyte P34W vs. Razer Blade 14

Face Off: Aorus X3 Plus vs. Gigabyte P34W vs. Razer Blade 14

Small brawl with powerful punches. Don't let their small footprints fool you — these high-end 14-inch gaming notebooks carry big guns with more firepower than competitors almost twice the size. If you're in the market for an ultraportable powerhouse, the bottom line will almost certainly come down to one of these three.
Asus PU551JH Workstation Review

83% Asus PU551JH Workstation Review

Quiet. Without making a big fuss, Asus has included a mobile 15-inch workstation in its product line. The PU551JH is already available for less than 1,000 Euros (~$1098) and might be a genuine price-cutter thanks to its matte Full HD display and Nvidia Quadro K1100M. We have tested it extensively to see if this is the case.
Intel Core i5-4210M | NVIDIA Quadro K1100M | 15.6" | 2.5 kg
MSI GE72 (GTX 960M) Notebook Review

82% MSI GE72 (GTX 960M) Notebook Review

Intel Core i7-4720HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M | 17.3" | 2.9 kg
MSI GE60 (GTX 960M) Notebook Review

80% MSI GE60 (GTX 960M) Notebook Review

Solid gamer. The MSI GE60 is a powerful, yet affordable, gaming notebook. The laptop performs well but suffers from high noise and temperature emissions.
Intel Core i7-4720HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M | 15.6" | 2.6 kg
MSI GT70 (GTX 970M) Notebook Review

86% MSI GT70 (GTX 970M) Notebook Review

Gigantic with drawbacks. As expected from MSI's GT lineup, we meet uncompromising readiness to perform. The update of the GT70 is faster and in some cases even cheaper. However, the weaknesses found in the old tests, unfortunately, have not been eliminated.
Intel Core i7-4710MQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M | 17.3" | 3.8 kg

Asus GL771JW Notebook Review

86% Asus GL771JW Notebook Review

Turbo SSD. Decent gaming performance is expected from a gaming laptop. Asus' GL771JW fulfills this, and the laptop even pleases/surprises with a super-fast SSD (PCI Express x4). It also features a screen that offers 90% sRGB coverage.
Intel Core i7-4720HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M | 17.3" | 3.3 kg
MSI GS30 Notebook Review

82% MSI GS30 Notebook Review

Transformation. Compact subnotebook or fully fledged desktop replacement: The MSI GS30 wants to be both at the same time. Our review will reveal whether the GamingDock model does so successfully or whether it sits on the fence.
Intel Core i7-4870HQ | Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 | 13.3" | 1.3 kg
Aorus X3 Plus v3 Notebook Review

85% Aorus X3 Plus v3 Notebook Review

Size doesn't matter. It may be less than 14-inches, but the Aorus X3 Plus still performs just as well as many larger gaming models currently available. What compromises must buyers make for this 3200 x 1800 QHD+ 13.9-inch notebook with 3x RAID 0 and GTX 970M graphics?
Intel Core i7-4710HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M | 13.9" | 1.8 kg
MSI GE62 (GTX 970M) Notebook Review

82% MSI GE62 (GTX 970M) Notebook Review

More power. The GeForce GTX 970M is significantly more powerful than the previously tested GE62 model (GeForce GTX 965M). Sadly, even this 4K panel does not make the cut.
Intel Core i7-4720HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M | 15.6" | 2.4 kg
Asus ZenBook Pro UX501JW Notebook Review

83% Asus ZenBook Pro UX501JW Notebook Review

The Ultimate ZenBook? Sporting nearly identical specifications to the recently-reviewed G501JW, the UX501JW—with a 4K LCD display, discrete graphics, and quad-core CPU—targets an audience who may in fact be a better fit for its choices. Is this truly the ultimate ZenBook?
Intel Core i7-4720HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M | 15.6" | 2.3 kg
Razer Blade Pro 2015 Notebook Review

81% Razer Blade Pro 2015 Notebook Review

Needs sharpening. The 17.3-inch Razer Blade Pro has not seen a major revision since its reveal in 2011 and its age is starting to show. Is the attractive razor-thin form factor and unique Switchblade interface enough to convince the hardcore gaming crowd?
Intel Core i7-4720HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M | 17.3" | 3.1 kg
Asus G501JW Notebook Review

85% Asus G501JW Notebook Review

A new republic. The thinner ROG is certainly flashier, but cut corners are inevitable. Asus calls it the quietest ultrathin gaming notebook on the market with one of the fastest solid-state drives available. What can go wrong?
Intel Core i7-4720HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M | 15.6" | 2.1 kg
MSI PE70 Multimedia Notebook Preview

MSI PE70 Multimedia Notebook Preview

Wide-view screen. Rumors have been confirmed: MSI presents the PE70, a brand new 17-inch laptop that is not only aimed at the gaming community but also at enthusiastic multimedia fans and professional users. We were able to take a close look at the "True Color Screen" before the official launch.
