Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P50-C-179

Toshiba Satellite P50-C / S55T review (refreshed model with Core i7-6700HQ CPU) – more powerful but less balanced
Source: Laptop Media English
Last time the Toshiba Satellite P50-C had problems with the bottlenecking processor, but, this time around, the laptop features high-performance, quad-core, high-voltage Core i7-6700HQ that’s running the show pretty smoothly. Again paired with GeForce GTX 950M GPU and 8GB of RAM, the system offers fairly good performance (good for gaming) packed inside a semi-aluminum body with thin profile (22.5 mm) and low weight (2.07 kg). It even rocks relatively robust construction, comfortable keyboard (lacking LED backlight, though) and a good touchpad. It’s a really good choice for a daily driver and it’s good enough for carrying it around.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M: Mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series, based on the Maxwell architecture. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » 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.  
6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
