This year, on March 27, Xiaomi announced another notebook showing its intentions for the game industry. The Xiaomi Gaming Laptop can be considered as one of the best offers in the market if taking into account the price-over-hardware ratio. There have been two variants. One of them is based on the Intel Core i5 chip and GTX1050 Ti GPU, while the next version is powered by the i7 processor and GTX1060 graphics. The latter has gone on pre-order on April 13. As for the former variant, today, the company announced it will go on pre-sale tomorrow, on May 9. It will be sold for 5999 yuan ($941). As a reminder, the higher version costs 8999 yuan ($1412).
Like the recent Xiaomi notebooks, the Xiaomi Gaming Laptop continues the same logo-less minimalistic design and comes in a dark gray color option. The body thickness has reached 20.9mm. It uses a hidden hinge design. It is also made of stainless steel.
As for the key features, the Xiaomi Gaming Laptop sports a 15.6-inch narrow-border Full HD screen with a screen ratio of 81%. Under the hood, it carries the seventh-generation Intel Core i5-73000HQ processor, which is in its turn coupled with an 8GB DDR4 RAM, 128GB SSD drive, 1TB mechanical hard drive, and GeForce GTX 1050Ti graphics card.
In terms of cooling, the heat dissipation area increased by 50%. It also provides a 46% larger opening rate due to the stainless steel used in the grid. There is also a 3 + 2 large diameter bold heat pipe that increases the thermal conductivity by 25%, while the metal ultra-thin turbine blades help the laptop to reach a maximum speed increased by 20%. There’s also a special TORNADO key that kicks in ultra-fast cooling by dropping the temperature by up to 3-5 degree Celsius within 10 minutes.
At last, the Xiaomi Gaming Laptop has 4 USB 3.0, one USB Type-C, a Gigabit Ethernet, and an HDMI interfaces.
