Gigabyte P34G v2-CF2 Review and Ratings

 

Offering more performance than you might expect from a 14-inch laptop in this price range, the $1,499 Gigabyte P34G v2 is a great option for those who want a lightweight gaming system that can comfortably be taken on the road.

Decent performance at a good price ; Slim and lightweight ; Bright 1080p display with good viewing angles

Loud cooling fans ; Generic-looking design ; Uninspiring battery-life

The P34G v2 finished next to last in our grueling battery rundown test, lasting just over four hours. The Razer Blade showed almost three hours more stamina.

Gigabyte P34G v2 review - Pocket-lint

 

Great gaming performance, portable, high-quality display

Build not that flashy, fan is very loud under strain, battery can’t match non-gaming rivals

If you thought gaming PCs had to be big, heavy and ugly, then think again. The Gigabyte P34G v2 can't hold a candle to most £1,000+ Ultrabooks in the battery life or looks departments, but it's a discreet and portable laptop with serious gaming power.

Gigabyte P34G review

 

For the price, this gaming laptop packs a powerful punch

Excellent performance and specs ; Easy overclocking tool ; Great price

Poor touchpad ; Disappointing battery life ; Cheap-looking build

If you're in the market for a gaming laptop, you're already prepared to spend over a thousand bucks. But what you get for that premium price is key, whether it's a sleek system or a budget-friendly frag machine. Gigabyte falls far on the latter end of...

Gigabyte P34G gaming laptop

 

The P34G aims for a balance between gaming prowess and the thin-and-light territory of Ultrabooks.

Just 21mm thick, 1.67kg with SSD only ; Can run modern games at low-medium graphical settings ; Ultra Boost’ feature overclocks GPU for a few extra FPS ; Full HD 1920x1080-pixel display ; Solid, attractive construction

Can’t produce playable framerates while running on battery ; No optical drive for disc-based games (fine if you use Steam or Origin)

Gigabyte P34G v2 review

 

This lightweight gaming laptop is very capable, although it doesn't have enough battery life for serious use while out and about

The Gigabyte P34G v2 gives you a lot of power for under £1,000, and it's definitely one of the lightest gaming laptops we've ever seen. However, if you're not interested in gaming and would prefer instead to be able to use your laptop on the move all...

Gigabyte P34G v2

 

Look at the name and the photos and you'll see nothing remarkable, but the Gigabyte P34G v2 is a gaming laptop that flies in the face of convention. On paper, the combination of an Intel Haswell CPU with Nvidia's latest 8 Series GPU isn't strictly new;...

Gigabyte packs giant-slaying performance into a compact, portable 14in laptop with decent battery life

A Unchained Beast, with Ultrabook size

 

I wonder how this would do with 16GB 2133mhz dual channel ram and a 1TB 840 EVO instead of the mSata and traditional hard drive. I imagine it would be a incredible experience for years to come, not that I have any doubts it will be the way it's shipped!

This laptop is incredibly powerful. Except for the MUCH more expensive Razer Blade, which is sold out in so many places, you cannot get a faster 14" Laptop ; 14" is truly a size I've fallen in love with. Great for carrying in a backpack, but the screen...

No Optical drive. I have noticed I don't really need one built in at all as of late, digital distribution really is here ; Fans can be loud ; May take a little tweaking to get the best battery life for light use
