  1. I just need 60 fps. And i dont care much about perf, i care about graphics

  2. On the note of someone to help you with this game I would love the opportunity to do so, I'm even a floatplane sub if that helps!

  3. MSI afterburner has benchmark mode, recording 1% and .1% lows as well, you should use in place of Fraps, less software overhead

  4. Great video. Out of curiosity, what WiFi card does this 2018 Helios use? Hope its not a killer…

  5. Seems to be a very solid performing notebook for the price, esp since it has a 144hz IPS display. I don't play either Fortnight or PUBG, don't spend much time gaming these days. I prefer simulation (F1 and Dirt) and more casual/older titles (Starcraft II). Have been thinking about trying World of Warships.

  6. Maybe in the future try benchmarking in the 50v50 game mode (assuming it is still available by then) it tends to be more harsh on the computer, I’ve found. When there is two giant groups of people all bunched up, building, shooting, and blowing things up simultaneously, it finally manages to make my computer struggle a bit

  7. I like to watch OJCinHD streaming Fortnite, he is a good kid he interacts with the chat constantly

  8. Hi Tech Deals been a long time subscriber to your channel but I have a question that would really like your advice on.

    I plan to build a PC for Exclusive Encoding on movies and anime. Well i do often play triple A games myself at times. Could you give me some insight on what I should choose to get or anyone willing to give some advice. I do have a budget but im working towards it no matter how long it will take. If you could somehow kindly do a video to guide users like me who might be interested in this could be good. I plan to download and encode untouched bluray version 24 hours. For now i can only download because my specs arent good enough to encode. What are the specs that will help me encode long and smoothly for long operations? Thank you for the answer in advance guys and TechDeals.

  9. Should i get a acer predator 17 (1070) or this 2018 helios 300?

  10. Hey Tech Deals, just wondering if you plan on reviewing the new AMD B450 motherboards, and how they’d potentially pair with CPUs such as the Ryzen 5 2600X. Thanks and keep making great videos!

  11. "Ok I'm bleeding out and someone needs to come and rescue us, but notice the framerates are dropping that much." LOLOLOL Best fortnite stream ever!!!!! πŸ™‚

  12. does anybody know if this model is also available in Europe (germany) ?

  13. Its a no go. Had only bad experience with their customer service.

  14. Just want to know, which of these two laptop has better gaming perfor mance, and cooling? Zephyrus GM501 or scar II GL504??

  15. Isn't that hot on the keyboard?
    Also, to maintain the low temperature, have to hit the airblade fan to the max & do you find that very loud?
    Mine have all the above issue.
    Have to use usb external gaming keyboard & a headset to ignore the fan noise.

  16. Haven't had the chance to play this game yet, so Guess I will have to take a look. I do agree though that you don't have to drop your graphics settings making a few minor adjustments can help, It is a nice laptop though but then Acer kit normally is.

  17. those purple dual hand-guns are pretty good if you are comfortable using them.

  18. I don't have an elgato hd60 s and I'm getting this laptop. I'm gonna use GeForce experience made for nvidia graphics card to record gameplay, and I head that using that has little to no performance loss while recording, can I use GeForce experience and still have it be as smooth as it is in this video, or will I NEED a legato hd60 s to have it be that smooth in my recording?

  19. what the hell is this game? it looks stupid. must have been made to make the millennials happy.

  20. I am playing fortnite a lot and I know if you would get in real build batlle, fight… there would fps be below 60 and sometimes these is a problem becuse you missed a shotgun shot. So I would turn everything to low or off except wiew distance to high so you dont have disadvanteges. Anyways the video doesnt deserve a dislike. Keep the work up.

  21. Lol i can tell that ur playing on the default sensitivity. lower that about 3 times and you should get better

  22. From someone who plays fortnite – this is frustrating to watch

  23. It goes from grey, green, blue, purple, orange in that order low is bad orange is good it goes up by color. The higher the color the better the gun/weapon.

  24. One question?
    Do this games you tested will perform same in msi gp63 leopard?? It has intel i7 8th generation nvidia gtx1060 and 120hz screen

  25. How hot does it get if you play 3-4 hours straight? πŸ˜€
