. My configuration of the Eluktronics MAX 17 has an Intel, i7, 9750H CPU Nvidia, RTX, 2070 graphics, theres, no Max Q. Here 16gb of memory. In dual channel and a 17.3 1080p 144Hz screen., You can change the specs a bit when ordering its also available with GTX 1660 Ti or RTX. 2060 too, you can find updated prices linked in the description., Its basically a larger 17 version of the MAX 15. I recently tested Ill be comparing the two in a future video so make sure youre subscribed for that. The control panel. Software lets you select different performance modes, Ive done all testing with turbo mode, which enables EluktroBoost, and I had fan boost, enabled for best results. Theres. A 0.05v undervolt to the CPU by default too, and my unit has stock thermal paste.. What makes the MAX 17 impressive is the size and weight at under 2cm thick? It weighs around 400 500g or around a pound less than other powerful 17 options like the Razer Blade Pro 17 Gigabyte, Aero, 17 or ASUS Zephyrus GX701. Well only be covering gaming performance in this video. So if youre new to the channel you'll definitely want to get subscribed for the upcoming full review. Lets start out by going through all games at all. Setting levels then afterwards well see how the Max 17 compares with some other laptops. Red Dead. Redemption 2 was tested. Using the games built in benchmark tool. High settings was still able to give decent average frame rates.

Considering this is a resource. Heavy game. Battlefield, 5 was tested in campaign mode. Ive got the results with RTX enabled shown by the green bars and RTX off shown by the purple bars.. It was pretty playable with RTX on, though, as a first person. Shooter game youll probably want the higher FPS that can be obtained with RTX off, which ran much better. Control was also tested with and without RTX enabled.. The game still plays ok with lower frame rates for the most part, so RTX, even with the highest setting, was usable, but I personally preferred high settings with RTX off, which averaged above 60 FPS. Apex Legends was tested with either all settings at maximum or all settings On the lowest possible values, as it doesnt have predefined setting presets. The 144 FPS frame cap was being hit at minimum settings and even maxed out it wasnt too far behind this. Call of Duty. Modern Warfare was tested in campaign mode and Ive also tested it with the settings either maxed out or at minimum.. Minimum settings was close to 100 FPS in this test. However, it still played pretty well even with everything at maximum. Borderlands 3 was tested, using the games built in benchmark and even with the highest setting. Preset were pretty much averaging 60 FPS, which is a great result for a gaming laptop and is definitely due to the RTX 2070 graphics. Weve got here. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the built in benchmark and the results were alright Ill.

Show you how different laptops compare in this game and some others soon. Ghost Recon Breakpoint was also tested with the benchmark tool, and this was another demanding game that was still able to surpass 60 FPS, even with the highest setting preset due to the 2070 graphics that Were dealing with. Fortnite was tested with the replay feature and as a less demanding game. Epic settings wasnt too far behind the refresh rate of the screen, so no problems playing it all. While medium settings would give us even 1 low performance above the screens, refresh rate. Overwatch is another less demanding game and was tested in the practice. Range. Again, even with the epic setting preset, the frame rates are very high with the 1 low, not that far below the refresh rate of the screen. CSGO was tested using the Ulletical FPS benchmark and the results arent too different compared to other laptops with lower tier Gpus., This test seems to be more CPU heavy and once were at frame rates. This high theres usually more of a benefit seen from laptops that allow you to disable Optimus, which, unfortunately, the MAX 17 does not support.. Dota 2 was tested playing in the middle lane and, as is typically the case with this game higher end graphical power in most laptops, hardly makes a difference, as the limitation tends to be the i7 CPU., Regardless normal results here, which means its performing extremely well.. Rainbow. Six Siege was tested with the built in benchmark, but using Vulkan, which was recently added to the game.

. If you saw my recent blog post at jarrods, dot tech, I mentioned Ill, be moving to Vulkan for future testing, as it tends to perform better than the older DirectX. 11 implementation. Ill leave a link to that post in the description, if youre interested. Anyway excellent results. Here. Metro Exodus was tested using the built in benchmark. Most parts of the game perform a fair bit better than this, so dont take these results as a good indication of what to expect throughout the entire game its more of a worst case.. The Division 2 was also tested with the built in benchmark, and the results here seem better compared to most other laptops. The 1 low in particular isnt as low as it usually is, so it appears that the RTX 2070 is providing some benefit. Here. PUBG was tested using the replay feature.. Even at ultra settings it was possible to pass 100 FPS. However, we could also achieve this in 1 low performance with the low setting preset, which would deliver a smoother experience. Assassins. Creed Odyssey was tested with the built in benchmark and as a resource heavy game. The frame rates werent that high with the higher setting presets, however, hitting 60 FPS in this test for a laptop at very high settings, is a fair result., Far Cry. New Dawn was also tested with the games benchmark and, for the most part, the results arent. Really that much different when compared to most other laptops, Ive tested with lower GPUs as it seems to be more limited by the i7 processor.

, The Witcher 3 was playing fine even with max settings. I dont think it really sees a benefit from super high FPS. However, stepping back just one setting level would perform a fair bit better without too much loss to visual quality., F1 2019 was tested using the games benchmark tool and, although max settings had decent average FPS simply by stepping down one preset to high settings was able to Score about the same for the 1 low than the average at max settings. Lets also take a look at how this config of the Eluktronics MAX 17 compares with other laptops use these results as a rough guide only as they were tested at different times with different Drivers., Starting with Battlefield 5 Ive got the MAX 17 highlighted in red near similarly specced machines. In this game. The performance was about the same as the smaller MAX 15, which is just below it. On this graph.. The results are somewhere in between the other 2070 laptops. Ive tested so fair results, considering the MAX 17 is on the lighter side.. These are the results from Far Cry 5 with ultra settings in the built in benchmark. This time. The MAX 17 saw an improvement over the MAX 15 and was now actually beating all of the other 2070 laptops that Ive done this test. With.. The 1 low is right up there too, coming in third out of this selection.. These are the results from Shadow of the Tomb raider, with the built in benchmark at highest settings.

. Again, the results were a little ahead of the smaller MAX 15, with same specs and close to the heavier and larger GP75.. The ASUS GX502 seems to perform better, though, despite being smaller, most likely due to the ability of bypassing Optimus. Overall, the MAX 17 is performing quite well and, for the most part, a bit better than the smaller and lighter MAX 15, with same specs. Owing to the additional cooling, space. Ill go into more depth on that topic. When I do the dedicated comparison video., If youre looking for a 17 inch gaming laptop, the MAX 17 appears to be delivering on the performance front compared to the competition., Its performing quite close to the heavier GX701 and Razer Blade Pro 17, all while being about 20. Lighter so a more portable option., Let me know what you thought of the gaming performance from the Eluktronics MAX 17 gaming laptop down in the comments and, if youre new to the channel, consider getting subscribed for the full review to see everything.
