Acer Predator Triton 500
First in our list is the Acer Predator Triton 500. This slim laptop comes with an RTX 2060 or an RTX 2080 Max-Q. The 15.6-inch display is an IPS panel with 144Hz and G-Sync enabled for a smoother experience. In the cooling, we find a three-fan solution for better performance.
The 1.8cm height of the laptop and the weight of just over 2.0 kg makes it very suitable to
carry around. Despite being thin and light, it’s actually pretty sturdy as the aluminum construction gives the needed rigidity.
Second in our list comes the Alienware M15. Featuring not only NVIDIA’s RTX 2060, but it can be configured up to an RTX 2080 for better performance. CPU options include up to a core i9 for the enthusiasts. Other fancy features include magnesium alloy for lightness, a very narrow bezel and a display with an optional 144Hz refresh rate.
Alienware s new Cryo-Tech 2 cooling technology is present to optimize component cooling. You can get the M15 with an optional 90Wh battery for a longer life span and all that is packed into an 18mm height form that weighs just 2.16 kg.

Next up from Alienware comes the bigger M17. It’s also built to stand out with its firm and light magnesium inner chassis and other premium components. Boasting an RTX 2060, that can be configured up to an RTX 2080 Max-Q and various other things like a 60Wh battery upgradeable to a 90Wh one.
The display is a 17.3-inch FHD with optional 120Hz refresh rate and 100% sRGB coverage. Additionally, the Cryo-Tech v2.0 is also present but the Alienware m17 has 60% larger fan-blades on the graphics-side fan than on the Alienware m15.

ASUS ROG Strix GL704
Now, we’ll have a look at what ASUS has to offer: The ASUS ROG Strix GL704. It’s a 17-inch laptop with an aluminum chassis and very narrow bezels мaking a less distracting frame that puts the panel into a form factor which is under 400mm wide.
Specs include up to an 8th gen Intel i7-8750H and GPU’s such as the NVIDIA RTX 2060 or even an RTX 2070. Other features include a 144Hz display with G-Sync and low response times plus the 100% sRGB coverage, makes the laptop even more appealing. The weight on it is also impressive at just 2.9 kg.
ASUS ROG Strix GL504
Next from ASUS, well it’s basically the GL704’s little brother. The 15.6 ASUS ROG Strix GL504 is also a fine example of a laptop paired with an RTX 2060 or RTX 2070 and up to an Intel Core i7-8750H.
Further featuring the thin bezels, a 144Hz display with G-Sync and 100% sRGB coverage with low response time, but in an even smaller body, measuring at just 2.4 kg. This makes it much easier to bring about if you need the laptop on the go and not needing the extra inches of display.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX531
Another RTX powerhouse from ASUS comes in the form of the slim ROG Zephyrus S GX531. This ultra-thin gaming laptop packs a big punch with an RTX 2060 inside, or it can be configured up to an RTX 2080 Max-Q while maintaining the stunning 15.35mm height(while closed) and 2.1kg weight.
This little space is a challenge for the cooling of such hardware but ASUS has thought of that and came up with a solution that worked on the previous model. When the laptop is opened it lifts up and opens the back lid by 5mm to increase airflow. All of this power is hooked up to a 15.6-inch 144Hz display which has 100% sRGB coverage and very low response times.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX701
The next ultra-thin from ASUS is the ROG Zephyrus S GX701. The 17-inch version of the GX531 also lacks excuses in terms of performance and lightness. It’s small bezels and overall size manages to squeeze the laptop into a 15-inch form factor.
Featuring the same cooling solution to cool the 18.7mm thin chassis with hardware like the RTX 2060, configurable up to an RTX 2080. The 17.3-inch display is also a 144Hz panel with 100% sRGB coverage, but also G-Sync is present in this version.

HP Omen 15 (15-dc1000)
The HP representative comes as the Omen 15. Packing an RTX 2060 or an RTX 2070 Max-Q inside. Featuring a new fan design with larger blades, a 3-phase motor, and fluid dynamic bearing that improves heat dissipation. The 15.6-inch FHD display has an optional 144Hz refresh rate with G-Sync support.

Lenovo Legion Y540
Let’s have a look at the tech giant’s Legion lineup and we start with the Y540. This 15.6-inch laptop comes with an RTX 2060 and similar design to the Y740 series. The FHD display panel can be configured to 144Hz refresh rate and up to 300 nits of brightness. Yes, not as much as the Y740 but enough for a good experience.
Though the keyboard is white backlit and there is no ambient lighting, but it compensates with a full-size numpad. The Dolby Atmos sounding is also here for immersive surround-like sound.

Lenovo Legion Y740 17
And so, let us have a quick look at the bigger variant of the new Lenovo Legion Y740. It features a sleek and clean look from the all-aluminum chassis. The 17.3-inch FHD display boasts 144Hz refresh rate and has the option of NVIDIA G-Sync technology and Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range (HDR) which peaks at 500 nits of brightness for that HDR content.
For sound, it has a Dolby Atmos Sound Bar for surround-like experience during Gaming. And all of that is powered by an RTX 2060. RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 are also options, but they come as Max-Q design, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
All of the ambient and keyboard RGB is synced thanks to Corsair’s iCUE system. For convenience, most of the ports are relocated on the back of the laptop.

Lenovo Legion Y740 15
The next representative from Lenovo is again the Y740 but in a 15.6-inch version. Here we still seе the same features, like the available G-Sync 144Hz display with Dolby Vision and the Dolby Atmos sound bar. Same RGB and overall design and the same RTX 2060.
The RTX 2070 Max-Q is also an option, but we see the lack of an RTX 2080. Nevertheless having a smaller body, but still boasting good performance might not be such a big deal for most people.

Razer Blade 15 Advanced
And now we bring you something for gamers by gamers. And that is the newish Razor Blade 15 Advanced. The very slick design of the Blade 15 is also a good example of thin and powerful laptops. Rocking an RTX 2060, or up to an RTX 2080 Max-Q while maintaining a weight of around 2.0kg and very slim bezels, 4.9mm to be exact.
The 15.6-inch display can be either an FHD 60Hz configurable to a 144Hz version or even a 4K 60Hz panel is available. The Blade is also very well known for its impressive battery life for such hardware. Inside we find a big 80Wh battery for gaming on the go.

Samsung Notebook Odyssey
Something different here is a gaming laptop from Samsung. The Notebook Odyssey comes with a premium metallic design, giving it a very stealthy and sleek look over his competitors. This means you can bring it at your business meetings – its body doesn’t scream GAMING.
The reduced bezels leave more room for the 15.6-inch FHD display with a refresh rate of 144Hz and G-Sync enabled for that smooth gaming experience.
The Odyssey is packing the latest RTX graphics cards and Intel’s 8th Gen CPUs which are being cooled by two redesigned Jet Blade blowers hooked up to a five pipe system.

All of that is fitted into a body that weighs just 2.3 kg. Another feature is the audio of the laptop. It has big and loud sounding speakers with independent chambers.

Second, from MSI section comes the GL73. Yet again we see the RTX 2060 but on a bigger laptop. The 17.3-inch display also features the low response 120Hz refresh rate TN panel.
The same 7-heat pipe cooling solution and big speakers are present too. By having a bigger display, the gaming experience on the laptop itself may be better for some people.

MSI GE63 Raider RGB
Next comes another 15.6-inch laptop from MSI. But here we see a different package. Not only the GE63 Raider RGB comes with an RTX 2060, but it can be configured up to an RTX 2080. The inclusion of RGB keyboard and panel is also a diversity from the other models from MSI. The display is FHD and either a 120Hz or a 144Hz version.

The fancy RGB backlighting of the keyboard is also present here plus the cooling solution chosen for these laptops.

The MSI GV63 is the next laptop that the Taiwanese company has equipped with the latest generation NVIDIA video cards with Turing architecture. For the time being, we only have information on RTX 2060 video card configurations.
The laptop is more of a budget orientated, but despite that, it can be had with a 120Hz display(though a TN panel) that surely will be liked by the FPS gamers. For others, there’s also a 60Hz IPS panel if you sacrifice the refresh rate.
The GV63 can show off with its sophisticated dual fan and dual exhausts. How will that reflect on the inner temperatures, we’ll find out in our upcoming review.
