As powerful as desktop PCs, yet thin and light enough to travel, gaming laptops let you play hard, and everything! Here are the five best models tested by our lab, so in this article we will take a look on Top5 best gaming laptops for October 2020
No need to worry about a big tower PC to play in good conditions. Thanks to Nvidia’s “mobile” 3D chips and the latest generations of Intel chips, laptops can now run the most resource-intensive games with an excellent level of detail, while remaining true nomadic machines.
There are some very good “gamer” laptops that barely weigh two kilos. The most powerful, however, can easily exceed 4 kilos (not counting the weight of the adapter) and are rather designed to replace a tower at home.
In terms of performance, the best machines are those equipped with GeForce RTX chips from Nvidia, the RTX 2060, 2070 and 2080 (classic, Super or Max-Q). They are generally accompanied by Intel chips with 4, 6 or even 8 cores. The latest are those of the Comet Lake-H family and all have a reference that begins with the number “10” and ends with an “H” or the couple “HK” like the Core i5-10400H or the Core i9 -10980HK.
In recent weeks, the first AMD Ryzen 7 or 9 of 4000 series laptops have finally hit the shelves. One of them is even in our Top 5. Their goal? Capsize the Cores, of course!
On the most muscular gaming PCs, there is 16 or 32 GB of DDR4 RAM, with the added bonus of a super-fast SSD module of 512 GB or 1 TB of storage. Or two SSDs or a couple consisting of an SSD and a large hard drive. With such a high level of equipment, these machines, beyond 3D gaming, are also very powerful workstations.
But beware of the prices! A gaming laptop is expensive, much more than a desktop PC of comparable performance. The five best gaming laptops tested by our lab and presented here, range from 2,000 to almost 4,500 euros.
But beyond these Rolls of the game, there are many much more affordable models, based on Intel and AMD processors again, and mostly equipped with new generation Nvidia graphics cards but less muscular than the RTX. These are the classic GeForce GTX 1650 and 1660, Ti and / or Max-Q. AMD still shines with its absence from laptop graphics chips.
5. Gigabyte Aorus 17 YA
Downgraded to fifth place, the Gigabyte Aorus 17 YA is a very good gaming machine. Big and powerful. Very powerful, even. Its mechanical-type keyboard is pleasant to navigate, especially for playing. A little less to work, however. Its Full HD screen lacks a bit of brightness, yes, but it makes up for it with a remarkable display speed of 240 Hz. Good for FPS, that.
General note: 8/10 Manufacturer price: approximately 4000 euros

3. Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED XB
If you absolutely wanted to have a 4K and OLED screen that the Alienware above no longer offers – the 4th of our selection -, go for this Aero 15 OLED XB from Gigabyte! He has the right number of pixels and a quality AMOLED panel. Not to mention that it hides a beautiful mechanism in its slim case.
It is both a creation and game machine that is hidden in a very sober, very versatile case. The keyboard, whose keys can be colored at will, may betray it among all the other machines of your colleagues. Even if it is not perfect, this Aero – sold at the right price – is full of advantages. He deserves his third place in our ranking.
Note: 8.73 / 10 Manufacturer price: around 2,700 euros

2. Asus ROG Zephyrus G14
1. Dell Alienware Area 51m
It’s quite simply the most powerful gaming laptop in the world! Alienware is a tech freak, powered by the best 3D chip around, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, and an Intel 10-core processor from … desktop PCs. The 2020 version of the machine, still equipped with Intel but with the latest Core, the Comet Lake-S, is finally available and asks only to make the gigahertz roar.
The machine is painful to transport, with its 4 kilos and its two large chargers, but it ridicules all its competitors for the game and the rest. Unsurprisingly, the price of the machine is as crazy as its equipment when you start putting beefy components in it.
Note, in the event of a purchase (or a piggy bank explosion, as desired), Dell will reimburse you 200 euros until September 30, requiring re-entry.
General score: 8.81 / 10 Manufacturer price: from 2300 euros
