Samsung Forays into Gaming

samsung-series-7-gamer-custom-pc-review-5It seems like Ultrabooks have become the talk of the town lately, and while thin, light and portable are great characteristics to have for a notebook, we all know that those looking to play Battlefield 3 on the go at more than 3FPS want something a little bit bigger. This is why today we’ll be reviewing the Samsung Series 7 Gamer (NP700G7C-S01) gaming notebook.

The Samsung Series 7 Gamer is one of the most expensive notebooks Samsung produces today and it definitely has the hardware to back it up. Powering its core is the ever so popular Intel Core i7-3610QM quad core processor running at 2.30GHz, but is capable of turboing up to 3.3GHz for maximum performance. In order to ensure there’s plenty of graphics performance to go around, Samsung has also equipped the Series 7 Gamer with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M as well to ensure that it runs all the latest games at resolutions higher than 1024×768. In addition, Samsung has also equipped the Series 7 Gamer with a whopping 16GB of DDR3, dual 750GB hard drives with an 8GB express cache, tons of connectivity, and more.

    For $1600, I’d really have expected the GTX 675MX that’s Kepler based rather than the older, Fermi based 675M. Still a pretty good notebook though, doesn’t really deserve the “awesome” award IMHO.

    I mean, MSI is about to offer a notebook with a 7970M and an AMD FM1 chip for $1200 or something, which would have been a much more sensible choice than this.
