The thing I enjoy about gaming laptops is the unseen surprise. When a unit has a lot of external flash, like lights moving around the screen and gradient backlighting this is can indicate there is being covered up beyond the initial impression. The Clevo P270WM doesn’t want its users to be distracted. Its casing is a classic style bring to mind laptops that came out when grunge was still popular. Once the computer is turned on it quickly becomes apparent where the computer’s value is.
The Clevo P270WM has cooking under its hood a dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M. This runs 60% faster than the previous NVIDIA generations GTX 660M. What is great about NVIDIA is that they are getting all of their products correct according to their customer’s expectations. A major bellyache for any computer user has is choppy video. NVIDIA’s innovations address the issue and the result is that their product quality keeps improving.
Next to the graphics card or the GPU is an Intel LGA 2011 Core i7 processor i7-3960X. This supper slick chip contains overclocking support, which gives the end user the ability to push the computer’s limits, past what it is built for. It can achieve higher processing speed with the addition of the Turbo Boost 2.0 and Hyper-Threading Technology. These allow each processor to work at a higher speed on two tasks at the same time.
Another jaw dropping feature of the Clevo P270WM is the DRAM (Dedicated Random Access Memory.) 32GB quad channels support. This item was built for speed. It maxes out at 1866 MHz. By separating four areas for processing this cuts down the risk bottlenecking valuable information flowing from the hard drive to the viewer. It also spreads out heat generated from running at such a high level of output. It’s applies the concept of parceling up a large item and converts it into manageable sub items.
The final feature is behind the computer’s 17.3” HD glossy display. It can transmit all ATSC HDTV standards. This gives the dedicated gamer a break from gaming without having to take a break from the computer screen. Imagine moving from a Warcraft marathon to a Soprano’s marathon, all in the click of a button.
The only negative item dug up is its looks. Looks never matter when gaming compatibility is the main objective. Whatever lost in physical esthetics is recovered many times over by boutique internal parts, a large display, and television viewing capabilities.
