Best Gaming Laptops Under 80,000 INR [August 2019]

    Gaming Laptops 60K

    Although gaming laptops have the luxury of portability which many PC gamers envy, they could not match the level of performance that PC gamers had. This all changed after NVIDIA unveiled their 10 series GPUs for laptops. These GPUs nearly match the gaming performance of their desktop counterparts with a max dip of 5-10% performance, which is traded for portability. We’ve compiled a list of best gaming laptops under 80K INR. Since our budget is 80K, ray-tracing is off the board. We will be primarily focussing on 1080p gaming at ultra settings and occasional 1440p with high settings.

    Best Intel Gaming Laptop Under 80K: Lenovo Legion Y540

    • CPU: 9th Gen Intel Core i5-9300H @ 4.10 GHz
    • Display: 15.6-inch 1080p IPS
    • Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650
    • RAM: 8GB DDR4
    • Storage: 1TB HDD + 128 GB SSD
    • Price: Rs. 70,990

    The Lenovo Legion Y540 is an excellent choice for gaming at ultra settings thanks to the NVIDIA GTX 1650 powering the visuals. The laptop also sports the 9th generation Intel Core i5-9300H mobile chip running at a clock speed of 4.1 GHz. Physically, the laptop weighs 2.3 KG and for I/O, Lenovo provided 1x USB-C, 1x USB 3.1 Gen 1, and ethernet options. Mini DisplayPort and HDMI ports are also included for powering external displays. If you like e-sports titles, you might not like this laptop owing to its 60Hz display.

    Best AMD Gaming Laptop Under 80K: ASUS TUF FX705DT

    • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7-3750H
    • Display: 17.3 inch 1080p
    • Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB
    • RAM: 8GB DDR4 at 2400 MHz
    • Storage: 1TB HDD + 256 GB SSD
    • I/O: 1x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A, HDMI 2.0
    • Price: Rs. 74,490

    The release of 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen 3000 processors has made quite a buzz among PC enthusiasts, and you can find many laptops with the Ryzen 5 3550H and the 3750H. However, beware that these are the Picasso APUs running the 12nm Zen+ cores, same as the Ryzen 2000 desktop CPUs. Despite that, the Ryzen 7 3750H is an excellent processor for gaming, and in most scenarios, the GTX 1650 will be the limiting factor. The laptop comes with a 17.3-inch FHD display to suit your gaming needs. For the price of about 75K, the ASUS TUF gaming laptop is a solid buy. Again, 60Hz display is a downside along with its hefty 2.7 KG weight.

    Best Budget Intel Laptop: Acer Nitro 5 AN515-52

    • CPU: 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H @ 4.10 GHz
    • Display: 15.6-inch 1080p TFT
    • Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
    • RAM: 8GB DDR4
    • Storage: 16GB Intel Optane+1TB
    • Price: Rs. 65,990

    If the Lenovo Y540 is a bit too much for you, then the Acer Nitro 5 packing the Core i7-8750H and the NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti is the next best option. Although the former is a step down from the GTX 1650, the CPU is actually a faster part. Despite being a generation older, it’s still based on the same Coffee Lake architecture and packs six cores at the same 4.10 GHz as the 9300H. There’s also 16GB of Intel Optane memory to boost everyday tasks.

    Best Budget AMD Laptop: ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DT

    • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7-3550H
    • Display: 15.6 inch 1080p IPS
    • Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB
    • RAM: 8GB DDR4 at 2400 MHz
    • Storage: 1TB HDD + 256 GB SSD
    • I/O: 1x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A, HDMI 2.0
    • Price: Rs. 65,535

    The cheaper sibling of the Asus TUF FX705DT, this laptop packs a Ryzen 5 3550H, a quad-core chip running at a base and boost clock of 2.1GHz and 3.7GHz. It retains the GeForce GTX 1650 on the GPU side, but don’t worry, you’ll easily hit the 60FPS and once again, it’ll be the graphics chip holding you back. You get the same 8GB memory and a 256GB SSD along with a 1TB magnetic storage as the more expensive TUF for almost 10K less.
