I see it's showing 5.02GB of VRAM but I thought it was pretty typical for it to usually show up around 5.7GB-5.8GB VRAM for a 6GB card. Maybe have a look in the Nvidia control panel and check out the specs and make sure it shows the full 6GB. I'd imagine the benchmark is just misreading the actual proper total.
I guess, it says dedicated video memory 6144 MB GDDR5, total available 14257 MB (shared system memory 8113 MB)
Who knows, the 32 GB flash card is actually 28.8 GB
The 256 GB SSD is actually 237 GB
The 1TB HDD is actually 931 GB
Cutting corners everywhere!
So far so good, I played FH4 for almost 2 hours, silky smooth, no hickups. The CPU temp did go up to 95c max recorded, GPU max 72c recorded with the fans at 5500 rpm. I wonder how hot my old laptop got as the air coming out and case don't feel that hot at all. The old one was too hot to keep your hand on it and could burn your fingers with the exhaust. It's not doing anything atm and feels warmer... No wonder the sound started cutting out, it must have been boiling hot in there.
Task manager says the cpu is at 3.9 ghz, yet it states it's a 2.2 ghz cpu. Perhaps that's with turbo on. You can overclock the gpu, but don't see it for the cpu.
It's a very nice machine, everything feels fast and responsive, plus the screen stands out with the color and contrast. Of course only time will tell. Any fresh windows install feels fast initially. Internet browsing with an SSD drive is much better though. All those tempory internet files take time. VGChartz is not a pita on this one :)
I verified after and found a few posts elsewhere on the net that said CPU-Z would show 6144MB for a 6GB GPU so that's all good then. PC data conversion sucks but seems like you got the point anyway.
i7-8750H is 6C/12T, and has a 2.2GHz base and 4.1GHz max boost. It has a 45w TDP, 100C max, so 95C is getting up there in temps. Mobile is designed to deal with the extra heat so nothing to worry about unless it ever actually starts overheating and shutting down. GPU at 72C ain't all that bad really. Hot, but still under 80C-90C, so less of a worry than the CPU. If the fans are running at reasonable speeds, then most of the heat should be getting vented directly out of the casing. It would still get hot inside, but the overall hardware shouldn't see temps anywhere near that.
At 95C you really wouldn't want to try and OC the CPU anyway. As for the GPU, you probably could a little bit but it seems like it's giving you more than you required at the moment and the more you push it, the more heat it will produce and the fan will get even louder. Plus it probably won't take much of a push for temps to rise 'exponentially'. This is a reason why it's not a bad idea to go a little overboard on the CPU and/or GPU in a laptop if you can because of the excess heat from gaming, if you can restrain yourself from just cranking it up and maxing it out regardless. It also allows for lower fan speeds and less noise, but comes at a cost. Gaming laptops are all about trade offs.
