Gigabyte Sabre 17 (i7-8750H, GTX 1060) Laptop Review

 

Double-edged sword Gigabyte's big 17-inch Sabre starts out with a lot of promise: The combination of a powerful new hexa core processor and a GTX 1060 should give rise to a full-fledged desktop replacement with plenty of gaming power. Can the Sabre 17...

2x miniDP + HDMI ; bright display with fast reaction times ; good processor ; cool and quiet under load ; energy use and battery life

relatively big ; weak WLAN performance ; TN panel, brightness distribution, colors ; below average gaming performance ; very bad speakers

All in all, the Gigabyte Sabre 17 WV8 is a good desktop replacement that can handle almost any task. It does a lot right, but it tails in a crucial area—gaming performance. Prospective buyers looking for a quiet, cool and comparatively energy-saving...

Recensione portatile Gigabyte Sabre 17 (i7-8750H, GTX 1060)

 

La spada a doppia lama Il grande Gigabyte da 17 pollici della Sabre inizia con molte promesse: la combinazione di un nuovo e potente processore hexa core e una GTX 1060 dovrebbe dare origine a un vero e proprio sostitutivo di un desktop con molta...

2x miniDP HDMI ; Display luminoso con tempi di reazione rapidi ; buon processore ; fresco e silenzioso sotto carico ; consumo energetico e durata della batteria

relativamente grande ; scarse prestazioni WLAN ; pannello TN, distribuzione della luminosità, colori ; prestazioni di gioco inferiori alla media ; altoparlanti decisamente poco udibili

Nel complesso, il Gigabyte Sabre 17 WV8 è un buon sostituto del desktop che può gestire quasi tutte le attività. Funziona molto bene, ma nelle performance di gioco si colloca in un'area cruciale. I potenziali acquirenti alla ricerca di un desktop...

Kort testrapport Gigabyte Sabre 17 (i7-8750H, GTX 1060) Laptop

 

Tweesnijdend zwaard. Gigabyte's grote 17-inch Sabre start vol goede moed: de combinatie van een krachtige nieuwe hexa-core processor en een GTX 1060 zouden een desktopvervanger moeten maken die voldoende game spierballen heeft. Kan de Sabre 17 de...

2x miniDP + HDMI ; helder, snel beeldscherm ; goede processor ; koel en stil bij belasting ; energieverbruik en batterijduur

relatief groot ; zwakke WLAN prestaties ; TN-paneel, helderheidsdistributie, kleuren ; benedengemiddelde game prestaties ; erg slechte luidsprekers

Dit is de verkorte versie van het originele artikel. Het volledige, Engelse testrapport vind je hier. Potentiële kopers op zoek naar een stil, koel en relatief energiezuinige desktopvervanger zullen de Sabre 17 waarderen. Maar als game prestaties de...

Ноутбук Gigabyte Sabre 17 (i7-8750H, GTX 1060). Краткий обзор от Notebookcheck

 

Палка о двух концах. Новая 17-дюймовая модель от Gigabyte в из серии Sabre обещает быть достаточно интересной: сочетания мощного шестиядерного процессора и видеокарты Nvidia GTX 1060 должно хватить для замены мощного игрового настольного ПК. Но сможет...

2x miniDP + HDMI ; яркий диспей с малым временем отклика ; мощный процессор ; тихий под нагрузкой, не перегревается ; низкая энергопотребление и хорошая автономность

довольно громоздкий ; медленный WiFi ; TN матрица, неравномерное распределение подсветки, плохая цветопередача ; игровая производительность ниже среднего ; плохие динамики

В общем и целом, Gigabyte Sabre 17 WV8 вполне неплох в качестве замены настольного ПК. По многим аспектам - это очень сбалансированная и успешная модель, но к сожалению с самым важным из них - игровой производительностью - у него проблемы. Все...

Breve Análise do Portátil Gigabyte Sabre 17 (i7-8750H, GTX 1060)

 

Double-edged sword O grande Sabre de 17 polegadas da Gigabyte começa com muitas promessas: A combinação de um poderoso processador hexa core e uma GTX 1060 deve dar origem a um substituto de desktop completo com bastante poder para os jogos. O Sabre 17...

2 miniDP + HDMI ; Tela brilhante com tempos de reação rápidos ; Bom processador ; Frio e silencioso sob uso intenso ; Uso de energia e duração da bateria

Relativamente grande ; Baixo desempenho WLAN ; Painel TN, distribuição do brilho, cores ; Desempenho de jogos abaixo da média ; Alto-falantes muito ruins

Tudo somado, o Sabre Gigabyte 17 WV8 é um bom substituto de desktop que pode lidar com quase qualquer tarefa. Ele faz muitas coisas certas, mas se descuida em uma área crucial - o desempenho dos jogos.

Espada de doble filo El gran Sabre de 17 pulgadas de Gigabyte comienza con muchas promesas: La combinación de un nuevo y potente procesador de núcleo hexa y un GTX 1060 debería dar lugar a un reemplazo completo de escritorio con mucha potencia de...

Test Gigabyte Sabre 17 (i7-8750H, GTX 1060) Laptop

 

Zweischneidiges Schwert Das 17 Zoll große Sabre von Gigabyte scheint vielversprechend: Ein neuer, starker 6-Kern-Prozessor zusammen mit einer GTX 1060 versprechen einen vollwertigen Desktop-Ersatz mit reichlich Gaming-Ambitionen. Ob das Sabre 17 dieses...

2x miniDP + HDMI ; reaktionsschnelles & helles Display ; guter Prozessor ; kühl & leise unter Last ; Energieverbrauch & Akkulaufzeit

relativ groß ; schwache WLAN-Performance ; TN-Panel, Ausleuchtung, Farben ; Gaming-Leistung unterdurchschnittlich ; sehr schlechte Lautsprecher

Insgesamt ist das Gigabyte Sabre 17 WV8 ein guter Desktop-Ersatz und kann fast alle Aufgaben gut bewältigen. Dabei macht es vieles richtig und erlaubt sich ausgerechnet in einem entscheidenden Bereich einen Patzer, nämlich bei der Spieleleistung.Wer...

Courte critique du PC portable de jeu Gigabyte Sabre 17 (i7-8750H, GTX 1060, FHD)

 

Epée à deux tranchants. Le gros Sabre de 17 pouces de Gigabyte vient avec une promesse, celle de combiner un nouveau processeur hexacœur puissant et une GTX 1060, ce qui en fait un remplaçant d'ordinateur de bureau complet, avec des capacités de jeu...

2 miniDP + HDMI ; écran lumineux avec de bons temps de réaction ; bon processeur ; silencieux et frais en cas de sollicitations ; gestion de l'énergie et autonomie

plutôt encombrant ; performances WLAN ; écran TN, distribution de la luminosité, couleurs ; performances de jeu inférieures à la moyenne ; très mauvais haut-parleurs

Au final, le Gigabyte Sabre 17 WV8 est un bon appareil de remplacement de PC de bureau, qui peut gérer presque n’importe quelle tâche. Il fait bien les choses, mais déçoit dans un domaine crucial, celui du jeu. Ceux qui seraient intéressés par un...
