Also this laptop has a bigger brother – Acer Predator G9 793, absolutely same laptop but with 17inch panel, 4k variant and 4 speakers.

 

First of all, good sides:

 

  • Solid construction, soft touch martial all over the case, no glossy parts.

  • Sound is really loud, even basses exists here, though I can’t say its best of the best.

  • Outstanding performance, take a look at this data https://goo.gl/oyF9dl, almost all games run over 60 fps in 1080 and over 30 fps in 4k. Take a look a several gameplay videos that I’ve captures on this beast, all of them were captured in 4k resolution, on ultra settings with no AA:

 

Rise of Tomb Raider - https://youtu.be/rNRMnytsC2c
The Witcher 3 - https://youtu.be/dJicr6we0z0
Quantum Break - https://youtu.be/PNofDssIgS4
(1080 with max AA) Crysis 3 - https://youtu.be/H1ja_BhD0-Q
Resident Evil 7 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiF-zhTwNDE
Battlefield 1 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypOEnJ9KbKs
Dishonored 2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jhtvj4BkiMc

 

Only in  Ghost Recon Wildlands I had less then 30 fps https://youtu.be/lbeW9PZvsUo

 

And bad sides:

Played Mass Effect: Andromeda in 4k on ultra settings. Alas, another game that my 1070 is not particularly dragging. An average of 30 fps, but there are drawdowns and up to 20.

As a result, I decreased rendering by 20% from 4k resolution and fps became 40-45.

Gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-dhsKtJjok and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxcTEFqQ-Go

Two new videos :)

First, the replacement of thermal paste: https://youtu.be/8tnYBbDpmYo

And secondly, Destiny 2 at the maximum settings, with disabled anti-aliasing and 4k game. 30 fps stable, with rare sagging. In 1080 fps goes under a hundred:

      I have always been a big fan of Windows 7. I have 4 Media PCs throughout my house and a laptop. I have recently updated some of them to Windows 10 Pro. I have tried everything to get them talking on my LAN. I cannot share files anymore. They all ping, but are missing in the network folder. Thank God for Plex. Any advice?

      Hi guys,
       
      I'm sorry for making another thread just for this but I really wanted to pick your brains on this!
       
      I have an m15x with a 770m running windows 7 and everything works. Rock. Solid. I'm pretty happy with it. Since windows 7 is on it's way out, I would like to upgrade to windows 10. Now I've looked into it before and had a really hard time getting the 770m to behave nicely and had all these issues with green/yellow/pink screens and I remember it being a miracle I got it to work on 7 as good as it does.
       
      My question is how well does the 970m install vs the 770m - particularly on windows 10? I would buy it in a heartbeat if it makes the install less tedious with the colored screens and all that. Especially if all the functions work on it! I have been searching the internet and I cannot find nearly as many problems with the 970m as I could with the 770m, or am I just  not looking in the right places?
       
      Thanks a million!

      Hello. I'm currently running windows 10 on bios version 1.00 and want to upgrade to 1.03 but cannot boot Ms dos flash in uefi. There is no option to enable Legacy mode and the option to disable uefi in bios is greed out. When I try booting from flash in bios, it shows black screen and returns back to bios screen. My rig is a p157sm. Any help will be appreciated as I'm looking to install prema bios mod.

      Hello all! Im posting this here in hope to receive some orientation or help regargind my egpu project.
       
      I have my old and trusted Acer 5750G and I’m still using it everyday for work. I’m a photographer and it has worked quite well with some upgrades:
      -Upgraded i5 to i7 2630qm.
      -Upgraded ram, 8gb to 16 gb.
      -Upgraded HD to SSD.
       
      Some facts:
      – I have the unlocked bios so I was able to set the mpci port as “hot pluggable” and I can also deactivate the dedicated nvidia 630m from the bios itself.
      – I have bough this case [PCIe PCI-E EXP GDC External Laptop Video Card Dock / Laptop Docking Station (Mini PCI-E interface Version) ] that will arrive home in 10-15 days.
      – I have ordered a wifi usb card.
      I was thinking in getting a nvidia 1060 6gb and plug it to my old laptop using the mpci port. I ask for your advice and knoledge regarding this:
      1- Is this a good card choice?
      2- Will I face any problem with my setup or there is something important I should take into consideration?
      3- Will software that uses CUDA (photoshop and premiere, for example) get reinforced with the new card?
      4- How much processing power will get lost for the “small” port I will be using?
      Thanks a lot again, and sorry for my english mistakes!!
