BTO Notebooks X-Book 15CL77

The BTO Notebooks X-Book 15CL77 is a 15.6” gaming laptop. It weighs slightly heavier than a regular 15.6-incher, but this is the compromise for its performance. The chassis is made of aluminum and plastic and looks very neat. The choice of material also makes the laptop very sturdy. The notebook comes with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor, which is enough for performing serious tasks and proper multitasking. By default, the X-BOOK 15CL77 comes with a 128 GB M.2 SSD. 8 GB of DDR4 RAM is mounted. The RAM capacity can be expanded to 64 GB. In this new X-BOOK series, there is a pair of Onkyo speakers installed to deliver quality high, middle and low tones. Onkyo has been providing top quality audio for decades. Thus, this is a major breakthrough for BTO laptops. The X-BOOK 15CL77 comes with a Full HD IPS screen. It is a mate screen, which makes working in the sun more enjoyable and it also gets rid of annoying reflections indoors by lamps and windows. The delivered screen is an IPS screen, which has better viewing angles and a more natural color display over a standard screen. Gaming on the laptop is very nice with this keyboard, which responds quickly and accurately. The keystroke has a good feedback for a laptop and it features an RGB backlight, which can be customized by pressing the FN button + / on the number pad. The RGB backlight can be set to one color, 3 zones or one of the following settings: Breathe, Cycle, Wave, Dance, Tempo, Flash, Random, or Custom. This alone puts a strong ‘Gaming’ image to the laptop. The Control Center software included is available via FN-Button + ESC and is very comprehensive, a user can adjust the performance, brightness, volume, fan speed. A user can also choose to switch the video card, so the notebook runs on the Nvidia GTX1060 graphics card. The user can also use G-Sync, which is very useful when playing games. Stuttering and tearing become the past with G-Sync. This configuration gives gamers a proper gaming experience even at Full HD resolution. On the left side of the housing, there are two mini DisplayPorts, an HDMI port, and a USB 3.1 Gen 1 port. At the rear, there are another USB Type A port and the power-in. On the right side there are two USB Type C ports, 1 USB Type A port, card reader and GigaBit Ethernet port. The audio card is also on this side and has no more than one line out, one microphone, and a SPDIF jack. The BTO Notebooks X-Book 15CL77 is a well-equipped gaming laptop for its price. However, with the amount of gaming dedicated laptops out there, it is uncertain if the X-Book is relevant without any special features unique to it. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Comment

BTO Notebooks: This regional manufacturer focusses the Netherlands and Belgium. The market share is low.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 965M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 960M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (Laptop): Pascal based laptop graphics card using GDDR5 graphics memory. Should offer a similar performance to the deskto GTX 1080. However, there is also a more power efficient "Max-Q" version that performs worse than the normal GTX1080 and is used in thin and light laptops.NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (Laptop): Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates.NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (Laptop): High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower.» 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.  

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.8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). Intel Core i9:

9980HK: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates eight processor cores clocked at 2.4 - 5 GHz (4.2 GHz with 8 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). Offers an unlocked multiplier that allows overclocking of the CPU.
