Samsung Series 7 700G Gamer Laptop Lands in U.K. with Solid Specs

Paul Lilly

The thing about gaming laptops is that you're stuck with some of the core hardware for the long haul. Sometimes you can upgrade the CPU without too much trouble, but rarely can you swap out the GPU. That means if you're shopping a notebook for games, you should invest in one with the highest end GPU you can afford. Samsung's Series 7 700G ships with an AMD Radeon HD 6970M with 2GB of GDDR5.

That's one step down from AMD's 6990M flagship mobile graphics chip. The 6970M boasts 960 stream processor units, 48 texture units, 680MHz core clockspeed, 900MHz memory clockspeed, 256-bit memory bus, 1,700 million transistors, and support for all the latest eye candy, like DirectX 11 and Shader 5.0.

Moving on, Samsung's 700G laptop sports a 17.3-inch display with a 1920x1080 resolution and 3D playback support, according to SlashGear . It has an Intel Core i7 quad-core processor of some sort, 8GB of RAM (supports up to 16GB), Dolby Home Theater, optimization modes like "Balanced," Gaming," "Green," and "Library," and a back-lit keyboard with U-shaped key caps.

The 700G is only available in the U.K. at the moment for £1,499 (around US$2,450). No word on when it will land stateside.
