Jilano2784539dIn my opinion, yes. That is why so many people don't recommend "gaming" laptops.
I recently saw a new model that literally required two PSU, one for the GPU (a 2080 Super IIRC), and another one for the rest.
That much power is bound to heat it up.
In addition to all of that, you can't have a proper cooling system in such a small size. When even desktop have trouble keeping an acceptable temperature overall, laptops can only be worse.
Yeah that's fairly normal.
Make sure it gets enough air, and remove the dust inside every now and then.
If noise is the issue, I guess you could try to change fan curves, or maybe undervolt the CPU and GPU.
Okay, good, thanks for the reassurance. I think I will have to stick with undervolting slightly (And have folk around me get used to the fan noise. On my side, headphones are enough to drown out most :D)
At least this machine has a buttery smooth 240 Hz display. Aaaaah. I love it so much now!
C0D45708439dGaming laptops heat up, it's normal.
If it overheats get a decent fan stand for it to sit on, and hopefully it vents air outwards and not underneath it.
Mine doesn't overheat often, but the keyboard can get hot to touch at times.
>complains about shit cooling
Whats next, the sky is blue?
@yellow-dog I stopped caring about brand differences once I heard crap about every brand I considered.
HP, Lenovo, Asus, Acer - each brand has its ups and downs
And to be frank, at least the machine has two independent cooling "tunnels" - one for GPU, one for CPU, meaning if one heats up more, it doesn't heat the other up, too.
Limit in game fps as much as possible 🍌
hardfault165439dConsole gives far more superior gaming experience as compared to PC
@thebiochemic or, you know, that time some Sony exec didn't talk with anyone from system security and made the company add an option to let people install Linux on any PS3?
The feature Sony then removed when the consoles were already in the wild, and for which it received a class-action lawsuit that it promptly lost and had to dish out a lot of money.
That was fun to watch.
brown5639dI asked Lenovo customer support if its normal to have my particular laptop model running above 90°C while gaming. I could see that my laptop was thermal throttling and wanted to get suggestion on what to do. Before I could even mention the throttling issue, he goes "it's normal sir, gAmInG lApToPs eVeN gO 100 -120°C" I am speechless.
