The casing of the notebook is made entirely of black plastic. There are no surface textures. The top of the base unit and the back of the lid are rubberized. The speaker bar is located above the keyboard and is angled towards the user.An unmissable power button was placed between the speaker bar and keyboard. On the underside of the device you will find two easy-to-open maintenance flaps that allow access to the entire hardware.
The case is very solid. The device has no weaknesses in terms of stability. The hinges hold the lid firmly in place. The lid can be opened with one hand.
The notebook offers a multi-color keyboard. The main buttons have a size of approximately 15 x 15 mm. Overall, the keys have a normal stroke and a clear pressure point. We like their crisp resistance. All in all, a keyboard with a very good typing feel.
The multitouch-capable touchpad has a size of 10.6 x 6.1 cm. This means there is plenty of space for using gesture control. The smooth surface of the pad makes it easy for the fingers to slide. The various gestures can be switched on and off individually in the pad's configuration menu. There are two mouse buttons below the pad. They have a short stroke and a clear pressure point.
The device is equipped with an anti-reflective, matt 17.3-inch display that works with a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 at 144 Hz.
The WLAN module also provides the Bluetooth functionality of the notebook. A Gigabit Ethernet chip from Realtek's RTL8168 / 8111 family handles wired network connections without complaining. The built-in webcam creates images in resolutions up to 1920x1080.
The gaming scion makes maintenance easy for its owner: large flaps allow quick access to the hardware. The device contains two working memory banks, 2x M.2 2280 SSD via PCI-Express Gen4x4, 1x Thunderbolt. There is no possibility of installing a 2.5-inch HDD. It is possible to clean the two fans.

INTEL Core i7-12700H, clock frequency @ 4.7GHz, socket 1744, codename Alder Lake-H, cores 14 (6+8), threads 20 (12+8), base clock 1.70GHz (P-Core), 2.30GHz (E-Core), turbo clock 4.70 GHz (Max Turbo), 4.70GHz (P-Core), 3.50GHz (E-Core) memory controller dual channel PC5-38400U (DDR5-4800), also supports PC4-25600U (DDR4-3200), CPU features GNA 3.0, Thread Director, IPU 6.0, Smart Sound Technology, Wake on Voice, High Definition Audio, MIPI SoundWire 1.2, DL Boost, Adaptix Technology, Speed Shift, Turbo Boost Max 3.0 (4.70GHz), Hyper-Threading, VT-x, VT- d, VT-x EPT, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX, AVX2, Thermal Monitoring, Flex Memory Access, VMD, AES-NI, Secure Key, OS Guard, Boot Guard, MBE, CET, Thunderbolt 4, L2- Cache 11.5MB (6x 1.25MB + 8x 512kB), L3 cache 24MB, chipset interface DMI 4.0, 16GT/s (PCIe 4.0 x8), PCIe lanes 16x PCIe 4.0, 12x PCIe 3.0, memory max. 64GB, memory bandwidth 76.8 GB/s.
The Intel Core i7-12700H is a high-end CPU based on the new Alder Lake architecture that was introduced in January 2022. The CPU is based on the Alder Lake-P chip (for H and P series) and offers all 6 performance cores (P cores, Golden Cove architecture) and 8 efficiency cores (E cores, Gracemont architecture). The P cores support Hyperthreading (therefore 20 threads together) and clock from 2.4 to 4.8 GHz. The E cores clock from 1.8 - 3.7 GHz. Compared to the 12900H, the 12700H offers slightly lower clock speeds and only vPro's limited "essentials" set.
Due to the 14 cores, the multithread performance is above the old Tiger Lake 8 cores and can certainly beat the old Core i7-11700H. When it comes to single-core performance, the 12700H is even faster thanks to the new architecture.
HI-TECH uses only full-copper heatpipe cooling. This type of cooling ensures optimal conditions and makes this unique notebook: While HI-TECH only uses this technology, other manufacturers often obstruct only inferior aluminum / copper hybrid or even pure aluminum coolers. These have a much worse cooling performance. Especially in gaming applications when devices are heavily used, there is a risk that the unit overheats. This leads to the fact that the individual components down contacts for reasons of protection, which minimizes the power of the device enormously. In the worst case, there could be breakdowns and could shorten the life lead. With the HI-TECH-copper heatpipe cooling in contrast the notebook is perfectly chilled even under extreme stress!
Need some examples? Maximum 34.9 ° C on the top and a maximum of 34.5 ° C on the bottom are given the high performance, a very low value. Make long gaming sessions are extremely comfortable, more than 24.5 ° C we could not measure on the palm rest. In idle mode, not even a temperature of 28.4 ° C is exceeded.
One might assume that the low surface temperatures expense of its components. But thought wrong: In our several-hour full load test (Furmark & Prime), the processor and the graphics card was far from critical regions, a maximum of 76 respectively 80 ° C gave the CPUID from Hardware Monitor. In idle mode, the components are shuttled one to nearly 40 ° C.
Mobile INTEL HM570 Express Chipset. The CPU version known from the Core i-10000 "Comet Lake" is still used, but Intel has changed a lot on the platform. The Core-i-11000 processors can use PCI Express 4.0, which doubles the transfer rate per lane and direction to 2 GByte / s. In addition, Intel has increased the number of PCIe lanes. Instead of the previous 16, which were reserved for the graphics card alone, there are now 20 lanes from the 14 nanometer CPU. This allows an M.2 SSD to be connected directly to the processor via four PCIe 4.0 lanes with up to 8 GB / s, which eliminates the bottleneck of the DMI connection with around 3.5 GB / s to the chipset for this SSD.
KINGSTON ValueRAM SO-DIMM 16GB, DDR4-3200, CL22-22-22, type DDR4 SO-DIMM 260-pin, clock 3200MHz, modules 1x 32GB, JEDEC PC4-25600S, ranks/banks dual rank, x8, CAS Latency CL 22 (corresponds to ~13.75ns), row-to-column delay tRCD 22 (corresponds to ~13.75ns), row precharge time tRP 22 (corresponds to ~13.75ns), voltage 1.2V, module height 30mm, special features standard SPD.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 is the third fastest mobile ampere graphics card. It is based on the GA106 Ampere chip and offers 6 GB GDDR6 graphics memory with a 192 bit graphics bus. It supports PCIe 4.0 and is available in two different versions with 60 to 115 watts (TGP). The notebook graphics card uses GB5-256 as a package and the chip size should be 40x40mm. The GPU supports eDP 1.4b for connecting the internal monitor.
There is no longer a Max-Q variant, but every TGP version can use the Max-Q technologies (Dynamic Boost, Whispermode).
The performance depends on the TGP variant and the cooling used. On average, it is about the same as an RTX 2070 Super Mobile. As a result, the performance in demanding games is best suited for QHD (2560x1440) and maximum details. Less demanding games can also be played smoothly in 4K.
The GA106 chip offers 4096 FP32 ALUs, half of which can also execute INT32 commands (i.e. 2048 INT32 ALUs). The RTX 3060 only uses 3840 cores. At Turing, all shaders could still run FP32 or INT32. The ray tracing and tensor cores on the chip have also been improved, according to Nvidia.

Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64Bit, pre-installed with all necessary device drivers. Switch on and get started!
The launch of Windows 10 and the associated developments are among the most important market launches in Microsoft's corporate history. Windows 10 not only brings a new version of the operating system onto the market, Windows 10 enables a new platform generation:
"We want to ensure that we offer developers the largest and most vibrant user base for their applications," said Satya Nadella in his opening keynote at BUILD 2015 in San Francisco. Windows 10 is now available in 190 countries and 111 languages.
The browser is really new in Windows 10: Edge replaces Internet Explorer. The new browser doesn't just have the cooler name. It is also much faster. In almost all browser benchmarks, Edge depends on IE 11 from Windows 8.1. It can almost double its pace in Mozilla's Kraken benchmark. It looks the same in Google's Octane 2.0 test. Its pace remains roughly the same in the Sunspider test and the Peacekeeper benchmark. Conclusion: When it comes to the browser speed, Windows 10 with Edge catches up a lot. In Kraken and Octane, Edge overtakes the competition, in the Sunspider he stays ahead. The old conditions are only preserved in the Peacekeeper test.
Microsoft already shortened the start times of Windows extremely with Windows 8. If the computer is switched off using "Shut down", it does not switch itself off, but only goes into hibernation - from which it can wake up more quickly. Even with a real Katlstart or restart, Windows 8.1 is slightly slower: However, over time, Windows remembers the files that it needs for the start: The start time is shortened with repeated starts. After ten starts, the two operating systems were almost on par with 20 seconds (Windows 10) and 22 seconds (Windows 8.1).
Windows is actually getting faster and faster the older it gets: For most components, manufacturers are releasing ever more up-to-date drivers that accelerate the hardware. Windows feels like it is getting slower and slower: This is mostly due to the fact that the autostart folder is filling up with more and more entries, more and more tools are running in the background and more and more programs that are no longer used are littering the memory. The performance tests show hardly any difference between Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Sometimes one system is faster, sometimes the other. But all the results are so closely related - with less than three percent difference - that no difference is noticeable in practice. This also applies to tests such as Cinebench R15, which primarily check the processor performance. Even if we repeated the tests several times, nothing changed: When saving and buffering frequently used files, nothing seems to have changed between Windows 8.1 and 10. Conclusion: When it comes to hardware performance, Windows 10 is as fast as Windows 8.1 - or vice versa. So that Windows 10 stays fast, the same rules apply as always with Windows: Install the latest drivers and keep the system clean.
Windows 10 comes with the new Direct X12 3D interface. DX12 is designed to allow game programmers to use the capabilities of the GPU more efficiently. Computers with less powerful graphics cards can also benefit from this and display graphically complex games more smoothly. At the moment, the potential of DX12 can only be demonstrated using synthetic benchmarks such as the API overhead test. Conclusion: Windows 10 has the potential to accelerate games on weaker systems thanks to the DX12. But the concrete results will only show games that use DX12. The first should appear at the end of the year.
Windows 10 lays a good foundation: the hardware manufacturers have to use this to tease out a performance plus with improved drivers. Or in the case of Direct X12 game programmers who use the capabilities of the new interface in games.
