Reviews for the Toshiba Qosmio X870-11Q
The Toshiba Qosmio X870-11Q might have the sort of angry styling that excites teenage boys but it's packing extremely potent components under the steel-grey hood. With its latest Intel processor, a hearty serving of RAM and the powerful dedicated graphics card, the X870 is capable of tackling any office task, some photo and video editing and the latest gaming titles -- just don't try and carry it around for too long.

The Qosmio X870 is without doubt the best choice for anyone (with cash to burn) who needs the best gaming machine waiting for them at home. However, the styling and price won't appeal to everyone and if you still want the 3D experience, albeit with slightly less power, then the Samsung Series 7 Gamer is a worthy alternative.

The Toshiba Qosmio X870 packs an impressive set of high-end components leading to superb applications and graphics performance. Highlights are the quad-core Ivy Bridge processor, highly capable nVidia graphics processor and active 3D technology. Where this laptop falls flatter is its steep price tag, ugly design and toy-like plasticky build quality.

Without full pricing details, it’s tricky to guess at how the Toshiba Qosimo X870 gaming rig will compare with other portable options, but it has the basics in place. Decent build, a 3D-ready screen and support for the most popular gaming components of the moment should put it on the “to watch” list of anyone looking for a games laptop.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M: Renamed GeForce GTX 570M with slightly higher core clock speeds
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
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.
An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
