The newly-introduced Helios lineup can easily replace a high-end desktop, as it comes with desktop-grade components like Intel's Core i5-9600K / i7-9700K / i9-9900K CPUs coupled with up to 64 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM and up to 12 TB of storage, plus RTX 2060 / RTX 2070 / RTX 2080 GPUs. The chassis is clearly bulkier and the laptops come with 330 W power adapters.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
