say it once, and only once. Laptops aren't usually meant for playing high end games. It takes a decent chunk of change to make it feasible.

That said, once they figure out liquid cooling in laptops we might see that change.

Nioh is really not optimized well. It's the only game that ran pretty sluggishly on my 970 at 1080p. It runs perfectly on my 1070 but I should not need a 1070 for a ps4 game.

Some games are just unoptimized. I get a few of them. Ones that are optimized I can see a 60 - 100fps at max settings at 1440p.

Nioh's Minimum GPU: Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 780 VRAM 3GB or over AMD Radeon™ R9 280 VRAM 3GB or over.

GPU req is high, makes me want to guess TC has a 1050/Ti in that Omen.
Explain why MSI needs our laptops on top of the wholesale cost they're already get from us in their GT72(s)/GT80(s) trade in program? MSI isn't to be trusted!

I usually focus on Recommended since I want to enjoy a game and not just run it. It meets that. GPU recommended is a 1060 6 gig. CPU is pretty high too at an i7 4770k. Although not as high as ARK PARK. Or Star Citizen at optimum settings.

Depends on the res too, if at 720p i think a 1050ti can 60fps it.

What's 720p? Ok I kid, lol. 240p on 3DS is crap though.

I was kidding. I run 1440p myself.

All the other games TC listed are pretty high-end - this has nothing to do with laptops and everything to do with Nioh being a subpar port - it simply demands more power than it should given its visuals.
