i7-10875H + RTX 2070 Super Max-Q Beats 115W 2070? Gigabyte Aero 17 XB Benchmarks!
But how does this new combination perform in games? Ive tested 21 different games at all setting levels and compared it against other laptops and spoiler. The gaming performance of this 90 watt GPU beats 115 watt 2070 laptops.. My configuration of Aero 17 has the Intel i7 10875H processor, which has 8 cores and 16 threads. Theres Nvidia RTX 2070 Super Max Q, graphics, 16gb of memory in dual channel. With a 17.3 4K 60Hz screen.. You can find different options and updated prices linked in the description.. Although the Aero 17 isnt exactly designed to be a gaming laptop with these specs, it should still be capable of some excellent results and should serve as a good reference of what sort of gaming performance to expect from this level of new hardware.. The Gigabyte control center software lets you select different performance modes, Ive tested with the highest options available with max fan. Speed for best performance. Well only be covering gaming performance in this video well start by looking at all 21 games at all setting levels then compare the Aero 17 with some other laptops. Afterwards. Red Dead Redemption 2 was tested using the games built in benchmark tool.. As a resource heavy test, the lower ultra result is expected, though 70 FPS at high settings and near 100 at low is a good result.. 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. RTX was playable at low and medium settings, but Id prefer to just run with ultra and RTX off, which performs better and, in my opinion, looks better. Too. Control was also tested with and without RTX enabled, however, as the game also supports, DLSS 2.0 Ive tested this in the red, bars. DLSS runs it at 720p and upscales it and it looked pretty decent, while also still performing quite well at high settings very similar To with RTX completely off. DOOM Eternal was tested with vulkan and regardless of the setting level used, the average FPS was excellent. I had no issues at all playing even with the highest ultra nightmare, setting preset, which wasnt too far below 200 FPS. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the built in benchmark and the results here were excellent, but well compare this game against some other gaming Laptops soon. 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 and Ive disabled the frame rate cap. Even at max settings. The results would be a good match up for a 144Hz screen. Call of Duty. Modern Warfare was tested in campaign mode and Ive also tested it with the settings either maxed out or at minimum. Max settings were still playing smoothly. The 1 low was above even the 60Hz refresh rate of my 4K panel, while above 100 FPS was possible at minimum settings.
Borderlands 3 was tested using the games built in benchmark and even the highest setting preset was still able to average above 60 FPS in this Test. Ghost Recon Breakpoint was also tested with the benchmark tool and is fairly resource heavy at higher settings too, though, it was still able to average above 70 FPS maxed out a good result for this game. While high settings was still above, 100 FPS. Fortnite was tested with the replay feature, and it generally runs quite well on basically any modern hardware. So even at epic settings, the 1 low was above 100 FPS with well over 300 FPS achieved at low settings. Absolutely no issues at all here. Overwatch is another less demanding game and was tested in the practice range. Again, even with epic settings, its performing very well without any problems at all. While the 300 FPS frame cap was being hit at low and medium settings., CSGO was tested using the Ulletical FPS benchmark, and the performance here was noticeably better when compared to most of the other 9th gen laptops. Ive been testing for the last year, perhaps owing to the higher turbo boost speeds of the new 10th gen i7. Dota 2 was tested playing in the middle lane and as another game that seems to prefer higher CPU power. I was again seeing notably better results at low settings compared to 9th gen. That said, even maxed out, the performance here is still more than enough.
Rainbow. Six Siege was tested with the built in benchmark, but using Vulkan, which was recently added to the game.. Even ultra settings would be a fair match for a 144Hz screen with this hardware, and even the 1 low is above 100 FPS a nice result. 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. Ultra settings was almost at 60 FPS for the 1 low, which is a decent result for this test.. I think a recent game update has really boosted performance here, as 1 lows used to be consistently far behind the averages. PUBG was tested using the replay feature, though the results arent comparable with most of my previous tests. Due to the map change issues I mentioned in the G14 video. Regardless, it was still running near 100 FPS at ultra settings in my random play, through. Assassins, Creed Odyssey was tested with the built in benchmark and is one of the more resource heavy games tested. Here.. Almost 60 FPS was hit at ultra high settings, which doesnt sound great, but for this game its actually quite good as far as laptop hardware is concerned., Far Cry. New Dawn was also tested with the games benchmark and the results are a little better compared to many of the previous 9th gen laptops Ive covered, the extra CPU power is likely helping out in this test.
. The Witcher 3 was playing fine even with max settings. However, stepping down to high settings improved the performance, a fair amount, while still looking pretty good in my opinion., This is probably the oldest game. I still test so Ive got years worth of data to compare to in other videos. If youre interested., F1 2019 was tested using the games benchmark tool and, as is usually the case in this test, the performance at ultra high settings looked good, but, like the last game, stepping back just one setting preset was able to offer a decent boost. Lets. Also, take a look at how this config of the Aero 17 compares with other laptops use these results as a rough guide only as they were tested at different times with different drivers. In Battlefield 5 Ive got this Aero 17 highlighted in red near similarly specced machines.. The results were fair in this game. The average FPS of the 2070 Super Max Q is keeping up with many of the other 2080 Max Q laptops that Ive previously tested. However, the results were more interesting in the other titles.. These are the results from Far Cry 5 with ultra settings in the built in benchmark.. This test tends to favour CPU power and the 8 core 10th gen processor can actually hit some nice speeds in this chassis Ill show that in depth in the upcoming thermal testing video. Anyway. The results in this game are some of the best out of all laptops tested, likely only behind the Triton 500 at the top.
As that lets, you disable the integrated graphics which boosts performance.. These are the results from Shadow of the Tomb raider, with the built in benchmark at highest settings. Again, the Aero 17, with this new hardware, was producing one of the best results out of this selection of laptops.. I found it interesting that it was ahead of the GX502GW, given that it has the 115w 2070 with the iGPU disabled.. The FPS from the new Aero is almost 19 faster than the last gen Aero Ive got on the graph too, with 9th gen, 8 core i9 and 2070 Max Q.. Based on these results, it looks like the combination of the 10th gen processor and new Super graphics. Is actually holding up quite well compared to the last 9th gen and non Super graphics options.? I was pretty surprised when I found the 90 watt 2070 Super Max Q outperforming the 115 watt 2070 laptops now Im really interested to see how the new 115w 2070 Super laptops stack. Up.. Let me know what you thought about the new i7 10875H and RTX 2070.
