It will work but mostly light games.
I've been using a Nitro5 as a living room / backup laptop for about 2 years now and so far I haven't run into any problem. My specs are slightly lower though (i5-8300H, GTX1050, 8Gb) so given that this is an entry level gaming laptop, I don't know how well it will cool an i7-9750H. I always deactivate the CPU turboboost function with ThrottleStop and I keep a good raised cooler under it when gaming or else the fans have a tendency to go all-in.

For 55$ you go from 2 generation old hardware to current ZEN3 + GPU, in a nicer package. There isn't really a debate in my mind but alright.

And the current gen has benefits beyond raw performance, such as hardware acceleration for decoding video encoded with the AV1 codec which is seeing increasing adoption. Not a big deal, sure, but does help ensure that the laptop will be more useful for longer.quantman wrote: ↑ For 55$ you go from 2 generation old hardware to current ZEN3 + GPU, in a nicer package.

Edit: Both are probably not great for VR. I'd recommend having a look at the XPS sale in the "trending deal" section for something more VR ready.

Which is why I said that the GTX1650 sit between the GTX1050 and GTX1060. It's about halfway in between them in terms of performance.

You definitly have thermal problems. It's.not the best cooled laptop by any means but you still shouldn't reach the cut off temperature when gaming. You have a shitty paste job or a major sensor fault.seenjeen wrote: ↑ I have the 1050Ti version of the Nitro 5. It's a good laptop but prone to overheating (re: shutting off) with intense games. I might have to fix the thermal paste.
I can play GTA5 at 1440p but only 30fps, and locked 60fps at 1080p. The 1650 maybe gets 20% more fps.
I agree with the post above, the extra few bucks is worth it to jump to the 3050, especially if you want to be able to keep up with new games coming out.
