Performance: Metro and Mordor

Metro Last Light is your typical post-apocalyptic first person shooter game with a few rather unconventional twists. Unlike most FPS titles, there is no health meter to measure your level of ailment; rather, you’re left to deal with life, or lack thereof, more akin to the real world with blood spatter on your visor and your heart rate and respiration level as indicators. Metro Last Light boasts some of the best 3D visuals on the PC platform and includes a DX11 rendering mode that makes use of advanced depth of field effects and character model tessellation for increased realism. This title also supports NVIDIA PhysX technology for impressive in-game physics effects.

Here, Mythlogic’s laptop pulled just ahead of the pack, not counting two of the amped Alienware laptops.

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor brings orcs to life for one purpose: so you can tear them apart. The demanding game beats down lesser laptops, but a gamer like the Deimos 1615S should be able to produce solid frame rates.

Mordor

We tested the Deimos 1615S at multiple resolution, including its native 3840x2160. The system provided solid frame rates at 1920x1080 and 2560x1440, but slowed down to what we'd consider just barely playable framerates when running at its native resolution.
