are poor, typ­i­cal for a TN screen. That said, most gamers will prob­a­bly care more about the 120Hz re­fresh rate than color re­pro­duc­tion.

One stand­out fea­ture is sup­port for 10Gbps eth­er­net, courtesy of the Aquan­tia AQ­tion 10Gbit Net­work Adapter. This is a first for a lap­top. Then, there’s the SteelSeries rapid rGB me­chan­i­cal key­board, which may just be one of the best parts of this lap­top. It uses low­pro­file Kailh switches, and you get up to 3.4mm of to­tal key travel dis­tance. The key­board feels great, and there’s a nice clicky feel to the switches.

The 512GB NVMe PCIe SSDs in rAID 0 pro­vides blaz­ing- fast stor­age per­for­mance, with speedy se­quen­tial read and write speeds, so nearly ev­ery as­pect of the lap­top comes tuned for top-notch per­for­mance.

How­ever, these lux­u­ries come at a price, and the Ti­tan Pro is aw­fully thick and heavy. It mea­sures 58mm thick and weighs 4.56kg. Bat­tery life isn’t great ei­ther, so you’ll need its huge power adapter with you at all times if you do try to bring it with you be­yond your desk.

Another gripe we have is how noisy the fans are. The cool­ing sys­tem does its job well, but the fans are so loud they ac­tu­ally get in the way of voice chat in Dis­cord or Skype


The Ti­tan Pro sup­ports out­put to three ex­ter­nal 4k dis­plays.
