So, a while a go I teaser this photo in our blog. We were very excited on our first Gaming Laptop review laptop on the YouTube Channel. It's Illegear S5, an OM from Clevo P651SE.

The unit we are having, the spec is as follows:

Display:15.6 inch 4K QFHD Display Sharp IGZO Wide Color Gamut & Viewing Angle (3840 x 2160)
Processor: Intel (R) Core TM i7-4710HQ (6 MB L3 Cache, 2.50 GHz)
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M 3 GB GDDR5 with Optimus (Maxwell)
Thermal Compound: IC Diamond Thermal Compound - CPU & GPU
RAM: 32 GB Dual Channel DDR3L RAM 1600 MHz - 4 X 8 GB
Primary Drive: 1 TB 7200 Hitachi Hard Drive
Primary M.2 Solid State Drive: 128 GB Crucial M550 M.2 SATA Solid State Drive
Wireless Network Card: Killer TM Wireless-AC 1525 M.2 -WLAN & Bluetooth 4.1 Combo

The result of the PBM (performance Bench Mark) was quite decent. With it's mobility, I don't expect it to perform like a desktop, but 2.6 K on PC Mark 8 isn't bad at all.


Since this is a Gaming Laptop, it's only fair to compare it's 3D capability.
A whopping 68K score on Ice Storm.

Its performing higher than average gaming laptop.

If you want to compare score with your laptop, you may go to HERE for PCMark 8 and HERE for 3D mark.

My personal opinion on this laptop:
Like most gaming laptop, the GPU can only perform in optimum if you plug it into power supply. I know 4K display is the current big thing but for me it's the my least impress item. Most of the application is not design to have such resolution, as a result, you end up like Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong)

When I open up photoshop, I can't see sh!t. When I am playing DOTA, the notification is smaller than mosquito. Even if you use up scale software, it doesn't work.

Other than that, I am quite satisfied. I love how low it's price can go compare to some major brand with the similar specification. If you are interested, check out Illegear website on this customable S5 unit to know more about it's price.
