Headphone amplifier properties

Headphone amplifier Application area


Gaming notebooks are the front-runners in processor and graphics performance, which make the hearts of technology enthusiasts beat faster. They are usually strikingly designed with individually configurable lighting and keyboard layout. In addition to their stylish looks, gaming notebooks stand out for the following main features:

- Sufficient working memory (at least 8GB)
- Fastest processors (e.g. Intel Core i7 with four cores)
- Highend graphics performance (e.g. nVidia GeForce GTX 980M)
- Highest screen quality (above-average resolution/colour saturation/contrasts)

Additional speed is provided by SSD memory (fast program starts) and fast WLAN/Ethernet (shorter network loading times). Because this concentrated computing power generates a lot of heat, gaming notebooks require robust enclosures with efficient cooling systems. They also have a wider range of interfaces for connecting peripherals (mouse, keyboard, screens, etc.). So if you like to go to a LAN with friends and don't want to haul kilo of hardware, a gaming notebook is the best choice. Because where a few years ago only desktop PCs had the computing power needed to play current game titles smoothly, today notebooks can also keep up with the performance requirements of Uncharted, Far Cry and GTA.

Edition 05/2015- Die Asus Soundkarte ist trotz günstigen Preises erstaunlich gut beim Klang, wobei auch der Bass satt sowie präzise klingt. Zwar ist der obere Frequenzbereich kein Ohrenschmaus, da zu undifferenziert aber dennoch ist das Modell für Gamer mehr als geeignet. Zudem fällt die Software üppig aus, sodass der Nutzer hier zahlreiche Einstellungen vornehmen kann.more
