    Interesting that their main site is listed cheaper at $1427 instead of $1547

    Just the usual jacking up of price. Wish the authorities will do something about this.

    GTX1050TI will be the killer for gaming.

      You can't expect higher end for the price, a 1050ti is still quite good at this price imo.

      On the 1080p laptop screen, it is awesome. You'd don't need ultra settings for such a small screen and at 1080p you'll be playing games at high settings with 45 to 60fps.

        The issue is more the 2GB of VRAM and the system RAM total of 8 GB.

        This won't be much of a gaming rig in 2 years time. Better to seek out a 4GB variant or take the step up to a 6GB 1060.

        Seems that retailers are jacking prices on end-of-line laptops and desktop PCs now as well as freshly ordered parts. Might be time to knock out an automated ACCC submission at this rate.

          I don't agree with that as XBox One and PlayStation 4 consoles have a combined of 8GB of RAM and there will be cross platform games while those consoles still have games being made. Monitor resolution will always be 1080p, textures can be lowered to medium and anti-aliasing can be reduced reducing VRAM usage immensely. There is a whole bunch of people gaming on integrated GPUs and lower end discrete GPUs, this mid tier is easily enough to still game for many years.

          Here is a video of someone playing games with 1GB VRAM, there are plenty of them out there:

          I guess it depends on your standards of what is gaming, I personally don't mind gaming on Nintendo consoles which haven't been high end for a while.

          @FabMan:
          noob question - would this laptop be able to play Rainbow 6 Siege (at an acceptable framerate), output to a 4K monitor?

        • +2 votes

          @AtomuKirin: Yes it can output to a 4K monitor as it uses HDMI 2.0, but it could not play the game at 4K with any reasonable frame rates. The game would appear full-screen on the 4K monitor, but your resolution would need to be 1080p to play it in any enjoyable fashion, so it would look like a 1080p screen while playing that game, and pretty much any game as not many could play well at 4K with that graphics card.

          Below is Rainbow Six Siege playing very nicely at 1080p on the desktop GTX 1050 2GB:

          @FabMan:
          I own an e570p and the 2GB VRAM is a definite bottleneck. I have to drop settings in a lot of games to make them playable, that would be perfectly fine if the card had another 2GB of VRAM.

          Saying that, I'm not complaining for the price, I'm still happy with it.

          @FabMan: Consoles are engineered very differently to a standard desktop PC to better facilitate a sharing of cores and memory, and aren't expected to carry additional workloads alongside that.

          As for game configurations, I presume someone is looking to stave off switching core settings to 'low' in 2 years time, which unfortunately a machine running Win 10 will probably wind up doing if it's working with those VRAM/RAM numbers. What's more, a lot of modern games seem to be more dependent on anti-aliasing and supersampling to deliver decent image quality, both of which drive up VRAM usage.

          Using Nintendo is a poor example as they tend to drift towards titles and franchises with inherently less realistic and high-motion graphics, which are of course less demanding. If someone wants to play a standard AAA title these days, you need to have a few bells and whistles on to get a decent experience.

          Again, note that I am not potting the GPU itself to deliver decent 1080p graphics, merely the bottleneck of <2.5-3 GB of VRAM.

        Lenovo seem to be the only manufacturer using this 2GB VRAM variant of the card. All other manufacturers use a card with 4GB VRAM, which is what those videos would be.

    warning the lenovo au official website has lower price in this model (i5 cpu though but extra 1tb harddrive)
    anyway this graphic chips 2gb only, also its 45%ntsc screen, depends on what you expect
