Reviews for the Velocity Micro Signature 17

70% Velocity Micro Signature 17
Source: PC Mag English
The Velocity Micro Signature 17's low-key design will appeal to anyone less enthralled with the typical gamer aesthetic, but its limited storage is a drawback for serious gamers. For about $100 more, the EON17-X 10 Series will get you comparable performance, a 4K display and more than a terabyte of storage—all reasons why it edges out the Signature 17 for Editors' Choice. That being said, this is a well-built, high performing gaming laptop. So if you don't mind paying a premium for an incognito gaming laptop, you can hardly go wrong with the Signature 17.

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. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
6700K: Quad-core processor based on the Skylake architecture with integrated HD Graphics 530 and DDR3/DDR4 memory controller. Fastest Skylake desktop CPU at its launch mid 2015.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
