7 Of The Best RTX 3070 Laptops You Shouldn’t Ignore (Oct 2022)

Gaming laptops have come a long way, and we’re seeing the peak of extreme computing power that fits right inside your bag.

These machines that we’re about to go through are equipped with the RTX 3070, one of the most sought-after video cards. PC owners are unable to find any stock of RTX 30XX series, so they often resort to purchasing prebuilt RTX 3080 gaming PCs, or any PC with a RTX 30XX GPU built in.

But what’s the best RTX 3070 laptop in the market right now? We’ve narrowed it down to six models coming from the top brands in the industry.

The Best RTX 3070 Laptop In The Market

Eluktronics Max 17 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop

What Are The Specs Inside?

  • CPU: 3.3GHz AMD Ryzen R9 5900HX
  • RAM: 32GB
  • Storage: 1TB SSD
  • Display: 17.3-inch QHD (‎2560 x 1440)
  • GPU: 8GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070

The first on this list is considered to be the best RTX 3070 laptop by several in depth reviews, and we’re about to find out why.

Introducing the Eluktronics MAX 17, a laptop with the best GPU-CPU combo possible with the best portability and some cool looking RGB features. Despite being a powerhouse of a unit, it manages to stay slim and bears a lightweight design, coming in at 5LBs (2.2kgs) excluding the power brick.

The Eluktronics MAX 17 comes equipped with the Ryzen 5900HX and is able to carry out both gaming-related and content-related tasks with ease. The GPU power alone gives you enough juice to run games at ultra high settings. Of course, this is also made possible with 32GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD to run things as fast as possible.

Apart from the impressive graphics card and computing power, the display is also impressive in its own right. The monitor is a QHD (2560×144) resolution with 165Hz refresh rate and measures at 17.3 diagonally.

If you’re looking for a solid balance of workstation capabilities with extreme gaming power, the Eluktronics MAX 17 is worth looking into.

Alienware M15 R6

The Best Alienware Gaming Laptop With RTX 3070

What Are The Specs Inside?

  • CPU: 1.9GHz Intel Core i7-11800H
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Storage: 512GB SSD
  • Display: 15.6-inch QHD (‎2560 x 1440)
  • GPU: 8GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070
  • Battery Life: Up to 4 hours

Next on the list is Alienware M15 R6, and it’s not exactly breaking news that the Alienware is on this list. The brand itself remains to be one of the best and most trusted partners for gamers all over the world.

Enough about the brand, let’s talk about the laptop. The Alienware M15 R6 comes with an 11th-gen Intel i7 CPU, a 512GB SSD, and of course, an RTX 3070 graphics card. Unlike the Eluktronics gaming laptop, the Alienware M15 R6 is equipped with a mechanical keyboard, with each key being robust enough to sustain heavy tapping and pressing during intense PC gaming sessions.

But what’s really awesome about the Alienware M15 R6 is its cooling system. Their cooling system literally sets them apart from any other RTX 3070 laptop out there. The laptop runs on their Cryo-tech system with big vents. Even if you’re running ultra high settings for the most demanding games, the laptop won’t feel hot to the touch.

A robust laptop with guaranteed excellent performance all-around, the Alienware M15 R6 is a beast and makes for the best portable gaming gadget around.  

GIGABYTE AORUS 15G XC

Best Gigabyte Aorus Gaming Laptop

GIGABYTE AORUS 15G XC Laptop

What Are The Specs Inside?

  • CPU: 2.2GHz Intel Core i7-10870H
  • RAM: 32GB
  • Storage: 512GB SSD
  • Display: 15.6-inch FHD (‎1920 x 1080)
  • GPU: 8GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070
  • Battery Life: Up to 8 hours

Here we have another leading digital publisher on the list, GIGABYTE. Their entry into the best RTX 3070 laptop comes in the form of the GIGABYTE AORUS 15G XC.

Their gaming laptop comes equipped a 10th Gen Intel Core 17-10870H (unfortunately, it doesn’t have the 11th gen Intel core that other brands are running), 32GB DDR4 RAM, and 512GB SSD. If not for the two other laptops listed above, the GIGABYTE AORUS 15G XC would’ve been garnered the title of best RTX 3070 laptop.

The GIGABYTE AORUS 15G XC gaming laptop bears a 15.6″ screen, which is smaller than the rest but don’t laugh at it. The GIGABYTE AORUS 15G XC also has a full-sized responsive keyboard with lots of space in between, so you don’t have to worry about misclicking.

Of course, the RTX 3070’s total graphics power is only complemented with their CPU, but it’s not nearly as impressive given that it’s only a 10th Gen intel core. But don’t worry, the GIGABYTE AORUS 15G XC is still powerful enough to run games at ultra high settings without breaking a sweat.

MSI GL66

Cheapest RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop In The Market

MSI GL 66 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop

What Are The Specs Inside?

  • CPU: 1.9GHz Intel Core i7-11800H
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Storage: 512GB SSD
  • Display: 15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080)
  • GPU: 8GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070
  • Battery Life: Up to 3 hours

The MSI GL66 is an impressive gaming laptop in terms of price and power. In terms of price-to-performance ratio, nothing else comes close to MSI GL66 and believe us when we say that this gaming laptop has more to it than its price tag.

It may cost you less than $1,500, which is quite possibly one of the best gaming laptop deals you could ever land on, but don’t underestimate the MSI GL66. The CPU is a 1.9GHz Intel Core i7-11800H, which is far from what we’re accustomed to seeing in a typical RTX 3070 laptop. But this is expected given the laptop’s price tag, so the tradeoff was well worth it.

But it’s not only the CPU power that’s affected by the price tag. The battery life of the MSI GL66 is only about three hours, and it doesn’t have that much of a cooling system.

CPU-wise, it still delivers power to reliably handle AAA games with ease. The laptop’s RAM sits at 16GB with 512GB of storage. Granted, you’re not going be able to store all of the AAA games without deleting a few of them.

But if you’re after a compact video editing machine, the Razer Blade 14 is the better alternative. However, if you want a compact yet powerful gaming machine for less than $1,500 and the underpowered CPU (at least compared to other brands) does not bother you, you really can’t go wrong with MSI GL66.

Razer Blade 14

A Robust 14-Inch RTX 3070 Laptop

Razer Blade 14 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop

What Are The Specs Inside?

  • CPU: 3.3 GHz AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Storage: 1 TB SSD
  • Display: 14-inch IPS with FreeSync (2560×1440)
  • GPU: 8GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070
  • Battery Life: Up to 9 hours

This list would not be complete without something from Razer. And sure enough, we’re looking at the Razer Blade 14 as one of the best gaming laptops powered by the Nvidia RTX 3070.

It’s smaller than the other laptops on this list, but size is not everything. You’re still getting a fast and feature-filled machine that’s portable and powerful enough to run games at high settings.

The processor is an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, which should give you enough processing power for both gaming and video editing. The Razer Blade 14 also comes with16GB DDR4 RAM and a 1TB SSD, so you can carry out intense gaming sessions without worrying about FPS drops and latency issues.

As for the battery life, it surpasses the Razer Blade 15 and most of the other gaming laptops on this list. At full charge and on power-save mode, you can run this unit unplugged for up to 9 hours (assuming you’re Wi-Fi is off or have put it on airplane mode and running at 50% screen brightness).

It’s not exactly as game-changing as those 20-hour battery life that ultra portable laptops have, but it’s still very impressive for a gaming laptop.

ASUS ROG Strix G15

The Best ASUS ROG RTX 3070 Laptop In The Market

MSI GL 66 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop

What Are The Specs?

  • CPU: 3.3GHz AMD Ryzen R9 5900HX
  • RAM: 32GB
  • Storage: 1TB SSD
  • Display: 15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080)
  • GPU: 8GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070
  • Battery Life: Up to 6 hours

The ASUS ROG Strix G15 is on this list because it’s the best ASUS RTX 3070 laptop in their lineup. The CPU is an AMD Ryzen R9 5900HX and powered by Nvidia’s featured GPU, the RTX 3070 sitting at 115W. But with Dynamic Boost 2.0, you can clock it up to 130W.

Don’t worry about pushing the heat boundaries because the cooling system uses liquid metal compounds and helps keep the G15 cool even during intense PC gaming sessions.

And of course, the complete spec sheet of the MSI GL66 makes it even more impressive. Apart from the AMD Ryzen 9 CPU, you also get 32GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD. Games are displayed on a 15.6 FHD (1920×1080) screen with a 300Hz refresh rate. To put it simply, you’re getting the best display with the highest color gamut and highest color accuracy with minimal or close to zero ghosting.

Gigabyte Aorus 15P

Another Aorus RTX 3070 Powerhouse

Gigabyte Aorus 15P RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop

What Are The Specs Inside?

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-11800H
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Storage: 1TB SSD
  • Display: 15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080)
  • GPU: 8GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070
  • Battery: Up to 6 hours

Another Gigabyte Aorus on this list is the 15P, and just like its sibling on this list, it packs a lot of power underneath the hood.

The Gigabyte Aorus 15P is equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7-11800H mobile CPU. This CPU, combined with a 16GB DDR4 RAM and a 1TB SSD, and the Geforce RTX 3070 GPU, you’re looking at excellent performance for gaming, content-related tasks, and entertainment.

The Gigabyte Aorus 15P is built with power as the main concept, but it doesn’t look like it’s powerful. The laptop’s lightweight design sits enables you to lug this beast around without making you sweat. The laptop weighs 5lbs and is about an inch and a half thick. It’s as thick as a book, but doesn’t take up a lot of space inside your bag.

The storage here is probably the best one on this list. If you’re particular about storage, this is the RTX 3070 laptop for you. Sitting at 1TB SSD, you can store games and video files without worrying about deleting some of them to make space for more. Of course, you can always make room for more with an external SSD, all thanks to its many ports.

What FPS Can You Expect From A RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop?

Any of the RTX 3070 laptop we mentioned above can promise excellent performance and value. You’re getting X-gen Intel Core i7 CPUs or AMD Ryzen CPUs and at least 16GB of RAM with 512GB SSD for storage.

You can basically run games such as Battlefield 2042 at max settings and still sit at about 47.3FPS. COD Vanguard may float at about 43.8FPS in 4K ultra settings, but it still runs as smooth as it would on a PC.

For the newer AAA games, you can expect to float between 40 and 50FPS at ultra or max settings. But for the older games, you’ll hit 100FPS for ultra settings without any difficulty. But for some gaming laptops, the FPS might drop significantly if it’s unplugged.

Always make sure that your laptop’s plugged in when you’re gaming. Otherwise, you’re running on the onboard GPU power.

How Does It Compare To Other Future Brands of Laptop Video Cards?

Even with the advent of RTX 3080 gaming laptops and PCs, the RTX 3070 laptop is still very competitive in terms of value and performance. Compared to an RTX 3080, an RTX 3070 laptop doesn’t really have that much of a discrepancy in terms of overall performance.

RTX 3080 laptops only perform 15% better than an RTX 3070 gaming laptop, while a gaming laptop with an RTX 3070 Ti is only 8% to 11% ahead of the 3070. If you are on the hunt for better value without worrying about a decline in performance, purchasing gaming laptops equipped with RTX 3070 is a good move all in all.

You can still game at the highest resolutions possible or be able to carry out content-related tasks without any difficulty at all.
