Alienware M15 Review: Rise Of The Tomb Raider And Shadow Of Mordor
As this is a gaming laptop, probably the biggest question on everyone's mind is how well does it perform in real game titles. Equipped with a high-end 6-core mobile processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q GPU, are you might expect, this system performed rather well in the games we tested.
Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor is a fun and great looking game title. We tested the Alienware m15 with the High image quality preset and various moderate resolutions.
Next we took both resolution and workload up a notch, bringing in a quick run with the newer Middle Earth: Shadow of War up to 1440p resolution, again on high image quality settings.
The performance lead that the Alienware m15 holds over the Acer Predator Helios 300 drops to 19.6% when running Rise Of The Tomb Raider at 1080p but it's still a strong showing for Alienware here. In fact, as you might imagine, Dell's new gaming laptop with the GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q configuration should be able to power any current gen game title up to 1440p at High image quality settings.
