Reviews for the Digital Storm Triton

The Digital Storm Triton might cost a bit more than some of the competition but it makes up for it with some improved features such as a solid state drive and higher GTX 970M graphics processor. They also provide a long three year warranty compared to most that offer just one.

At the end of the day the Digital Storm Triton delivers on most, if not all, of its promises. This notebook is only marginally heavier than a budget 15-inch laptop but packs serious performance for hardcore gamers. The allure of high performance with low weight becomes even more attractive when you add good battery life and a price tag on par with bigger, heavier gaming notebooks with similar performance.

The Digital Storm Triton is a good thin and light gaming laptop with respectable 3D scores and a very good price. The MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K remains our Editors' Choice midrange gaming laptop, due to its lighter weight, better audio, more storage, and 3K screen. If you're trying to keep the system under $1,700, however, the combination of high-end enthusiast graphics, more-than-adequate storage, and convenient features should have the Triton squarely on your short list.

The Triton is a refreshingly different take on a gaming notebook. While the category’s performance has soared, size has dropped only slightly over the last few years, leaving us with massively powerful systems that are simply too heavy for most people to carry. Yes, the system is still a bit heavy, but no more so than an average 15.6-inch notebook build a few years ago.

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.
4710HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.5 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
