Hello

I have some doubts with the laptop that I should buy, I have 3 options...

NEW
ASUS ZEPHYRUS G GA502DU-BQ030 - RYZEN 7 3750H - GTX 1660TI MAX Q 6GB - 16GB - 512GB SSD - 15,6" FHD 60HZ - FREEDOS - 850€ / 929,52$

USED:

ASUS GL502VM-FY040T 600€/656$
-Procesador Intel Core i7-6700HQ
16 GB de RAM,
-SSD de 1 TB crucial y otro SSD M.2 de 256 GB SSD
NVIDIA GeForce GTX1060 de 6gb
-Pantalla FULL-HD con g-sync
Without warranty but the laptop has a very nice state

HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec0003ns, 5,6" (FHD, IPS) AMD Ryzen 5 3750H Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 4 GB GDDR5, 2x8 GB de RAM y SSD NVMe de 1 TB. 650€ /710$

No warranty but this laptop comes from a review, so it has few hours of use.

I want the laptop to play some games as LoL, Overwatch, and ocasionally if I can, play Beat Saber VR. The most important is I dont want thermal throttling, I know its hard... I read Zephyrus had issues but It was fixed with BIOS update.

The other Asus, I read that CPU and GPU voltage needs to be lowered.

About HP pavilion I dont know anything It's a new laptop and there arent information of the users.

Could you help me?

Thanks

Because you want the gaming laptop, that means you need the laptop has best cpu and gpu. And the best cpu will be ryzen 5> i7 6700HQ. The GPU will be gtx1660ti max q> 1060> 1650, keep in mind, the gtx1060 mobil is little bit better than the 1650.

Take the ASUS ZEPHYRUS G GA502DU-BQ030, if you have the budget, otherwise pick the HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec0003ns IMO.

Thanks cin19.

I think you are right, and I should discard the asus with 1060. But most important for me it's are temperatures, I have a MSI GX70 3cc (M290x with APU AMD) and thermal throttling is real haha. So I dont want feel the same. If Asus Zhepyr isnt a little oven I don't care about paying more.
