Isn't this a gaming laptop? Then why GTX 870m not 880? Even 2 880Ms wouldn't be able to push games at that resolution. BTW can any one please explain to me what is raid 2? i know about 0, 1, 10, 5, and 6 i think, but never heard of 2.

The standard levels of RAID are 1 through 6 I believe with 10 being an implementation of 1+0. A lot of them are not commonly used and I thought 2 was obsolete and not used at all. They must have improved on it with this new "Super RAID 2".

Laptop GPUs have just caught up to 1080P and even the 880m might not be able to max out all games. 3K is pointless for a gaming notebook as it will just be too much for the video card to handle (heck for 4K you need 2 DESKTOP flagships to play games (namely 2 780ti's or 2 AMD290X's or a 295X2) notebook cards aren't even close to one of those cards. this is a marketing cash grab if you ask me.

880m is too much GPU for that thin Chassis. Get a GT60 or GT70 to get the 880m GPU.

LOL, Super Raid 2. I had the same confusion. It's not RAID 2, it's RAID 0, their second version of their RAID board I guess.

You can always turn down the resolution on the 3K laptop so the games will run smooth.

Does anyone know if the GS60/GS70 has the subwoofer that the GT60/GT70 has?

The 3GB vs 6GB of GPU RAM, isn't 3GB enough even for 3K resolutions?

As we all agree (since tested multiple times on tomshw) 3gb of video ram is barely enough for 3k gaming but being an 870m you are not going to play 3k with ultra settings and filters enabled anyway...

Now that I look at the table closer it says:

Super RAID 2 (128GB SSD*3 RAID 0)

and

Super RAID (128GB SSD*2 RAID 0)

They just added another disk in RAID 0.
