With work , and being remote most the time i have decided to grab a Laptop to scratch the itch of CS. At the moment im using my work one, which is only a N4020 Intel... so i even downloaded 1.6 and source. However does anyone play cs2 on a laptop if so what specs / fps you getting 9 i know further optimisation's will be rolled out over the next few months / year also I thinking a 12700H with a 3070 240Hz . possibly a 3060 as it will mainly be for CS.

When looking for GPUs on a laptop you need to look at the power it can draw as there is laptops with like 80W, 100W, 130W... the more the better so don't forget to check that CS is a CPU heavy game but idk much about laptop CPUs so you're gonna have to research that yourself. Also make sure the cooling is great because it's gonna get hot

Also forget about high settings or anything like that because the laptop won't be able to pull enough fps for that and still be smooth... and CS2 looks very bad on low settings... my suggestion would be to build a desktop but if it has to be a laptop you're probably gonna have to sit on 100/150 fps at best with Windows stripped out and low/medium settings

My 2year old laptop runs CS2 on average of 150fps, but it is I7 processor and mobile version of RTX 3080. At home I connect it to external monitor. However, the problem is an incredibly loud noise due to working fans. It was great for CSGO, but I'm not happy with results as I'm currently tethered to home and 2k+ EUR I've paid for it back then would have produced average of 300fps if I spent it on desktop.

ikr, the best way to play game in laptop are with power mode(plugged in) set to best performance and turn on game mode in windows setting
2023-09-27 17:11
I indicated average, meaning that it is not going below 150. It can go up to 250, but the lowest percentile is what really counts as I don't really care the amount of fps when I'm not shooting at anything. And yes I've got everything maxed out in terms of powerplan and such.

Also got a Legion 5. 200 fps on empty inferno but the longer I play, the fps dips by 40% with occasional dips of even 60%. Can't really pinpoint it why it happens. Ryzen 7 4800H + rtx2060 + 16gb ram. All settings on low, 1080p Checked for CPU and GPU overheating but nothing out of the ordinary or exceeding max CPU temp.
2023-09-30 14:05
about 200 in dm if you tweak everything like mux switch on dgpu, cpu undervolt etc. but keep in mind the game optimization is dogshit and it won't fully utilize your components

i have a R5 5600H and a RTX 3050 4GB 60W laptop i get 150-200 fps in cs go at 1080p low, and 100-150 -sometimes lower than 100- in cs 2 1080p low. so, get a laptop that has a better cpu than R5 5600H. and since cs 2 will require a more powerful gpu than cs go does, dont go easy on gpu as well.

Get a AMD Ryzen laptop. They are as fast as Intel and have very good battery life. Don't get Intel CPUs as battery life is pretty shit with Intel (hopefully it changes with Meteor Lake). AMD 7x4x HS series (not HX) have best of both. 1. ASUS TUF A15. Ryzen 9 7940HS + RTX 4050/4060. 90Wh battery. Can easily last 8+hrs on battery in case you carry it outside. Powerful enough for CS2 and random games in general. 2. Lenovo Legion with the same specs. Lenovo laptops have been amazing these past few years. They also use a new phase change thermal paste that lasts very long and is only worse than liquid metal in cooling. 3. Lenovo Legion Slim 5 14.5" My personal favorite. Just came out. OLED screen, 7940HS + RTX 4060. Good and lightweght, no thermal throttling, full power CPU + GPU.

Who's talking about playing on battery? I'm talking about using the laptop AWAY from socket. Say, taking it to college or office. Intel CPUs are bad with battery life, while AMD gives far better battery life ALONG with performance.

ALONG with worse performance, more input lag and they don't have a good undervolt software like intel xtu even tho they come with more voltage than intel

?? Intel doesn't support UV since 12th gen. AMD you can use PBO2 to UV. Worse performance? Input lag? What's next, Half-Life 3 releasing tomorrow? Stop talking out of your ass and show actual proof maybe?

i know? you don't have to uv 11th gen or above and you don't even have to buy above 11th gen while you can get a 10-11th gen laptop for half the price. as for the performance: better fps = lower input lag you already know

Holy shit you are actually regarded. Did you even check out your own links? 13700H = 7940HS Some software prefer Intel and some prefer AMD. AMD 5000 and 6000 series are trash I'll give you that but I never recommended them anyways. I recommended 7000 series where AMD actually caught up to Intel. On the Intel side, 10th gen = 11th gen <<< 12th gen. Intel 12th gen onwards performance was MUCH better between generations. Also, as far as FPS is concerned you'll find many YT laptop reviewers (like Jarrod's Tech) who show that there's no FPS difference between models. GPU wattage makes more of a difference than CPU. What does it matter if you get +10 fps? It's not going to significantly reduce input lag.

Did you not read my comment? There is a SIGNIFICANT performance increase with Intel 12th gen+ and AMD 7000. You'd be wasting money buying anything older. Besides OP is looking for 12th-gen+ anyways.
2023-09-28 00:35

that SIGNIFICANT performance increase you're talking about are the useless e cores that gives a boost to multi core tests, single core which most games still use aren't a big jump(only 10-15% per generation), so unless you print money and can't buy a 13980hk laptop you should stick to deals you find in second hand, simple as is.

1. I am NOT recommending Intel anyways so doesn't matter. Anyways, Ryzen 7940HS is the efficient cheaper one rather than say 7945HX/13980HX. 2. You'd still be wrong. 10th -> 11th gen was like only 1-2%. 11th gen is infamous for barely making a perf increase gen-to-gen. But Intel's new P-cores did provide a big boost regardless even if its 10-15%. It's still greater than getting 1-2% increase. The last great increase was with 7th -> 8th gen but mostly because they added +2 cores. Intel got complacent without competition but now that AMD has caught up they are starting to try-hard.

1. worse performance than any other expensive option, but then again, you said stuff about playing without plugged :DDD like a bit more tdp is gonna ruin the battery life 2. switching to 10nm made cpu run about 15c cooler at the same tdp so it runs at higher clocks without throttling

1. You are in denial on having every single point refuted. Show me where exactly I said about gaming on battery. I could have easily recommended 7945HX/13980HX + 4090 but didn't considering a ~$1200 budget. At that budget 7940HS is the best you'll get for both performance and battery life since you know... its a laptop. Sometimes you are NOT gaming and have to carry it outside- its for those times 2. Regardless if its IPC increase, thermal headroom or both, the point remains that 12th-gen is a big increase. So no point in buying older gens. This will be my last comment on this matter. I have no desire to continue a convo with a deluded person.

1. you just said it again about the battery (even tho you said you didn't for some reason?), it still won't run out that easily and you don't want to sacrifice power for "using it outside occasionally", also i've checked your recommendations and you gave the worst quality laptops possible even though op didn't give a budget range. 2. no point in buying older gens even if it's 1.5-2x more cheaper and better quality? also there won't be a huge jump in gpu either since 4000 series are capped at 100w(you even recommended a 90w 4060 when 3070 can push up to 140w) and cs2 on low/medium won't push even a 115w 3060 to 100% and you just said "idc 12th gen faster /closed" rejecting all my points without giving a single correct reason and called me deluded 45w 11800h with 3070 almost the same fps as a 60w 12700h with 3080 ti, and you mentioned it like a MASSIVE HUGE GIGA SIGNIFICANT jump up lmao, a huge jump up is when you hop into desktop zone.

Intel disabled undervolting in 12/13th gen lil bro. Software like ThrottleStop may help, but does not work with every CPU.

2023-09-27 23:48
There is no point in buying RTX 30-series since they are around the same price as 40xx series. Unless of course it's different in your region, but in EU and the US for example 3060 and 3070 are not worth it at all. E.g. in Spain you can buy RTX 4070 laptop(with 12700H) for 1100-1200 EUR on sale(MSI Katana). Budget 4060 laptops, e.g., Gigabyte G5 or MSI Bravo go for 900 EUR. Of course anything of budget comes with shit display, the only exception is probably Acer Nitro 5 (they offer 165Hz FHD with somewhat decent colors and brightness, but shit zen 3+ cpu) Considering drivers optimization, 40 series will get better, so I'd go for 4060. I'd look for Aorus 15 or 7 with RTX 4060 and 360Hz/240Hz FHD display. 15` version can be bought for under 1000 EUR, depending on the region. This is a mid-budget laptop of a premium model's line, pretty good with 12500h or 12700h and superior display(they also offer low-tier 144hz screen). Anything else of a low budget will have shitty 144hz FHD display with 50% SRGB and 250 nits + high response time.

i5 13500h + rtx 4050 6gb, 16 ram, had no issues so far with any game
2023-09-28 00:32
Some of them have terribly slow response time screens despite being high refresh rate so look out for that in reviews, Jarrod's tech for example tests these things, good reviewer.

I have a 3 year lenovo legion with Ryzen 5 4600 and GTX 1650 with 16 GB Ram on Windows 11, got around 100-140 fps on 1080 low settings and 55-80 ish on 1080 very high. CSGO I got 250-340 plus fps on 1080p low for comp and 180-220 fps for death match.
2023-09-28 01:43
Also, don't bother with high settings or anything like that because the laptop won't be able to pull enough fps while remaining fluid... And CS2 looks terrible on low settings... my recommendation is to build a desktop, but if you have to settle for a laptop, you'll probably have to settle with 100/150 fps at most with Windows stripped off and low/medium settings.
