Gaming PC/Laptop should have at least 8GB RAM

Robert's Google+

Any laptop you bought on 2018 should have at least 8GB system RAM for minimal pleasure on gaming.

Try a new laptopr or PC ? higher chance you will tumble on windows 10 that required minimum 4GB RAM to run. The truth is windows 10 required a constant roughly 2.5GB RAM to maintain. For any user activities, you are just left with estimated 1.5GB RAM.

1.5GB RAM may seem to be enough for casual web browsing and watching Youtube. In some point, you will need to run its on PC games. This is where everything turn sour and ugly questioning "why newly bought laptop/PC on 2018 cannot handle a 5 years old game bought from Steam ?" 

Experts would argue you are still able to run the game. However, the game constantly taking 95% of the RAM. There was no secret that a game still run on 4GB RAM but with less FPS and happen to have events of stutter.

4GB RAM Laptop/PC are still widely available in today market. In fact, you just opt for higher than 8GB RAM and surely with medium to high tiered graphic card for better gaming experience. To shed a little information about GPU, any GPU running on DDR5 and 4GB VRAM are considered good for gaming. Should you accept 4GB system RAM with Nvidia 10xx series ? of course big no.


Fortnite Battle Royale taking 3GB RAM
There was no better things to do than playing Fortnite right now.

In order to further turn you off buying a 4GB RAM PC/Laptop, one of the best game genre in 2010 - 2020 Fortnite battle royale by Epic games is occupying more than 3GB RAM. 

As if you had 4GB RAM, it is literally unplayable for lacking 1.5GB RAM. To be frank, you could still play the game with image stuttering and imagine engaging in a large scale combat, instead of playing a game it like you are watching a frame to frame images.

PUBG mobile taking 1.5GB RAM
PUBG mobile by Tencent

Emulator and PUBG mobile is taking up 1.5GB RAM. With 4GB system RAM, you will get a constant 90% RAM occupied. It is not harsh to say you could never open a single page of google chrome or even try to do a desktop refresh. Some gamer like to open voice-chat software during game and you may try to open some of your favorite song ? Here is my suggestion, buy a PC/laptop setup that come with 8GB RAM or more. 

In the coming years, gaming enthusiats are slowly adopting live streaming their favorite game. 8GB RAM may not be enough any longer. You may need 16GB RAM in the year 2025 ?

Asus G56 New Flagship Gaming Laptop in Malaysia

Robert's Google+

You have more choice rather than picking up MSI or Alienware. Introducing Asus 's flagship groundbreaking and breathtaking gaming laptop 

Never underestimate Asus because they have reputation on solid laptop performance and durability. You are completely okay when consider to include Asus into your list of best gaming laptops. There were not a lot of brands out there specializing in gaming category. There are reasons why Asus should be consider.

Firstly, MSI and Asus are Taiwan based laptop maker company. Basically, MSI and Asus are both Asian laptops. It proved to be cheaper compared to Alienware which owned by Dell. It is not surprise to see Alienware peripherals are all not consider to be cheap in Asian point of view. Fortunately, we did not need condone to just Alienware branded laptops which we know their brand is most well known in gaming industry.

Heavily promoted by Asus Malaysia the new Asus G56 is available to every passionate Malaysian. It not really cheap but the specification is just mind blowing. It have everything you need and honestly preserving it nicely you would not need to change another gaming laptop for coming 10 years. For example, a cheap gaming laptop cost you around RM2,000 or even more but only lasts for coming 4 to 5 years as technologies in gaming industry surpassed your laptop. Why don you just pick something really a nice laptop like Asus G56 which you can play 99% of the high-end games today and make yourself worry-free for the coming years.

A true and hardcore gamer would already know which laptops they should get. Don be influenced by the cost try to look at the performance this laptop can deliver instead of the laptops costing you not more than RM2,500 . It is a high-end laptop worthy of the cost you pay. Imagine Ultra high setting on these games Titanfall, Watchdog, GTA 5, Tom Clancy, Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us. It surely can be achieved by this laptop in fact these games will be running like piece of cake.

Let look at this spectacular specification inside this laptop. Remember to blink your eye and close your mouth because you cant handle this laptop awesomeness. Which one to choose among Dell Alienware, Asus and MSI ??

I would pick Asus or MSI. Sometimes Alienware laptops is made for US Europe where their temperature is colder than Asian countries. As for Asus and MSI, it much more concentrate on better quality in dispersing and withstand heat inside the laptops. I might be wrong but I heard Alienware heated up pretty fast !

Top 10 Gaming Laptops in Malaysia 2014

Gaming Laptops is about weight, power consumption, Graphic processor unit. It is more than you ever know

Of course the main thing to ponder first speaking of gaming laptop should be GPU. Laptops will be always a portable one. Their weight as well as power consumption is very much important.

If it is heavy it will be not so portable. Importance of power consumption is no less than it weight. Comparison of graphic processor unit in laptops is essential it will be slight boring just talking about it. There are many things need to learn about graphic cards it is not just low-end and high-end graphic cards. There are many factors needed to consider !

We can breakdown on graphic cards to Pixel shaders, Memory speeds, Memory Bus. All of the new graphic cards in laptops need to be Direct 11.

Without further delaying, First you will see a entry-level gaming laptop till those will cost you really expensive. You do not really need heavy GPU laptops You can always buy a cheap one and play your favourite high-end game let say "Titanfall", "Crysis" rendered game setting to low. 

You need to know that gaming company always want their game to exceed expectation in current GPU. They want provide as real as possible. They are good at promoting to us to buy newer computers because they are affiliated with computer manufacturer. Gamers always have a choice to lower the game setting although it will slightly impact gaming experience.

Summary of important things to look at a gaming laptops are weight, power consumption, GPU, Screen size. As the innovation and creativity in small chips built inside each laptops growing rapidly, each laptops in the future will try to look at different angle in gaming laptop. Battery technology is one of the example. The reason why I do not put battery as an important factor to look at gaming laptops because gaming processor required consistent power supply that a lithium battery still will be depleted.

Purchasing a gaming laptop does not need you to look at the battery factor because a gaming laptops generally run faster when you always plug it into a power socket instead using battery. Laptop battery does a small part in this topic.
