Reviews for the Toshiba Qosmio X770-136
Source: IT Reviews
The X770’s bright and crisp screen displays some quality 3D effects, via the bundled Nvidia active shutter glasses. 3D gaming does slow down the frame rates achieved, but the Qosmio has enough graphical firepower, to ensure an immersive and relatively fluid experience with the likes of Battlefield 3. Toshiba has produced a good looking and well-featured laptop here, with that rather lofty price tag and poor battery life, being the only real sticking points.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M:
The successor of the GeForce GTX 460M based on the new GF116 chip. The performance is about 13% better than the 460M but with similar power requirements due to hardware optimizations.
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.
2670QM: Fast Quad-core processor clocked at 2.2-3.1 GHz based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
