Optimus IX Review


New member
I'm gonna start this off by saying this laptop is great. Games run fantastic on it (e.g. with overwatch I get over 60fps at ultra 4K!). When it first arrived, however, it was slightly dodgy. There was a problem with the preinstalled control center which caused the laptop to freeze up and had to be force shut down. However, after reinstalling it from the provided disc with drivers and such, it worked fine. It's got a great build quality and took suprisingly little time from ordering to it being delivered to me. I would recommend pcspecialist to anyone looking for a gaming laptop.

These are the specs that I went for:

I now have a notebook msi that is very silent in gaming mode. cpu and gpu are very frresh and the fans are at the minimum load. so i can play silently.
now i have a i5 7300 and a 1050. it has 3 pipe for gpu and 3 pipe for cpu....

but i want now an optimus IX with a 1060 but i had to choice between i5 8300 or i7 8750...
