Xiaomi's Redmi G gaming laptop offers 10th Gen Intel silicon, NVIDIA's GTX graphics on a budget – Pocketnow
Xiaomi’s Redmi sub-brand has today launched its first gaming laptop – the Redmi G. The new laptop looks quite appealing, thanks to the deep grooves and linear patterns on the lid which give it the signature gaming look, but in an understated fashion. But it’s not just about the looks, as the Redmi G laptop features two fans, independent heat pipes and an all-copper cooling module for heat management.
On the inside, you can configure it with up to a hexa-core 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor ticking alongside 16GB of DDR4 RAM and 512GB of NVMe SSD. As for graphics, you can choose between the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 and the slightly more powerful GTX 1650Ti GPU, which is good enough to play modern AAA titles at a decent frame rate, provided you keep the graphics quality set to low or medium.
The Redmi G gaming laptop comes equipped with a 16.1-inch FHD display with up to 144Hz refresh rate and comparatively slim bezels that help it achieve an 81% screen-to-body ratio. However, the brightness output is disappointingly low at just 300 nits. You get a backlit keyboard, but no fancy RGB lighting effects.
