It’s all about performance and the latest generation Pascal GPU and Intel’s 7th Generation Kaby Lake processors here. The notebook packs impressive specs for the asking price and delivering performance that cannot be matched by last year’s entry-level and mid-range gaming laptops with GTX 960M like the Aspire V 15 Nitro Black Edition, the Lenovo Y700 or the ASUS ROG GL552VW, which all happen to be priced just around the VX 15. Even from a design standpoint, the chassis appears to be sturdy, well-built and doesn’t go too far from what the industry offers right now. But what the Aspire VX 15 doesn’t have, which the others do, is the IPS panel.

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.
7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
