Gone those days when a gaming laptop should have an i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, any discrete graphics, and monster-looking appearance. Nowadays, notebooks have become an inseparable part of our everyday. This simply means they should be portable besides those aforementioned features. But we know the portability and thick housing are related to the heating. The slimmer a laptop is, the more difficult it becomes to remove the hot air. Probably, the best solution for this problem is the Nvidia’s Pascal GPU. This 10-series graphics card is way more powerful and efficient than its competitors. The graphics from this family come with a higher clockspeeds and a lower temperature output. Plus, it’s now possible to put a GTX 1060 / 1070 GPU into quite thin laptops. Sometimes, they provide way better performance than their desktop rivals.

Moreover, you will play not only offline games but head to online games to play and win real money. As you know, playing online games causes more overheating problems. Therefore, you should get your hands on a notebook that is perfect in all terms. Especially, this should refer to the cooling system.
