Pros

  • Dual graphics card performance in one GPU
  • $300 cheaper than a 1080

Bottom Line

Not long ago we were having to pay $1500 for a Titan in order to get this level of performance. A great time to be a PC gamer.

Far Cry Primal

Far Cry Primal is another Ubisoft game, but running on the latest version of the long-respected Dunia engine that’s been underpinning the series for years now. We tested these GPUs with the game’s free 4K HD texture pack enabled.

The game tends to favor AMD cards at higher resolutions, but as you can see, the GTX 1070 beats out every other graphics card tested with the exception of its big brother, the GTX 1080. Here, the performance gains over the last-gen GTX 970 are a bit more respectable; 41.3 percent at 1080p, 66.6 percent at 1440p, and 73.6 percent at 4K using the Ultra preset.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
