The temperatures are a concern, something Gigabyte always seem to struggle with.At 99C it won't last that long.
The majority of the programs I used for benchmarking all run perfectly with 4K resolution, but you are right there are some that you need to really look close at the screen to use properly.Also, at that screen size and native resolution, there are other general usage problems.
Text and icons are way too small at standard settings to be usable.
You have to crank them up to almost maximum size.
Other programs are unusable at those settings.
jriver for example.
Many windows utilities are also unusable, like RDC.
I use RDC to manage my servers, a laptop like this shows the remote screen with microscopic text and icons, impossible to use.
Windows (and many programs that run on it) is not yet ready for this resolution at this screen size.
The rift isn't even out yet, and you only have to glance at the current poll on any hardware site to see that VR is going to be a niche market for the next couple of years.despite being called 'gaming laptops'.
I've owned a rift for almost 3 years, the consumer version is out next month. Which polls are you referring to? the only one I found suggests the opposite.The rift isn't even out yet, and you only have to glance at the current poll on any hardware site to see that VR is going to be a niche market for the next couple of years..
