Best Gaming Laptops in Nepal Under 2 Lakh

Gaming PCs are not everyone’s cup of tea. They are big and chunky and do not offer portability. And in a country like Nepal, where load sheddings are frequent, they are considered less reliable. As the performance gap between gaming laptops and gaming PCs is closing, people’s preference for gaming laptops is quite on the rise. And with the powerful gaming laptop at disposal, one can play high-end games, perform their photo/video editing, and other graphics-related tasks without a fuss. But when comes the time of buying one, it’s quite a pain in the neck. Amongst a multitude of laptops, choosing one that best matches one’s personal needs is not an easy task. So you help you through, we have prepared a list of best gaming laptops in Nepal under 2 Lakh. The list contains all the pro-gaming laptops with support for Ray-tracing and DLSS.

But before diving straight into our list, we would like to explain what Ray-tracing and DLSS mean and why does it matter.

What is Ray tracing?

In the real world, when light hits a surface, it reflects. That is valid for all surfaces unless it is completely black. However, in the gaming world, it wasn’t the case. But in CES 2019, when NVIDIA announced its new RTX graphics cards capable of Ray Tracing, it added a new dimension in the gaming world.

So what does Ray Tracing mean? Ray tracing is actually a rendering technique that creates 3D images considering all the light sources and their reflections. So this rendering technique aims to emulate real-world scenarios by producing realistic lighting effects. It renders light and shadows in such a way the scene looks lifelike. For this, modern games are injected with computing algorithms that can trace the source and path of light, study how this light interacts with various virtual objects in the game, and simulates it in the scenes. It takes a lot of computing power to develop such scenes in a computer-generated world. So not all the graphics cards are able of performing Ray Tracing.

Traditional games used the rasterization technique, which used to convert 3D graphics into 2D pixels and showcase the image generated on our screen. However, shadows and other lighting effects used to miss out on the process. For that, rasterization used to require shaders to portray such effects. It’s computationally efficient and does not consume a ludicrous amount of power or require a super-powerful hardware setup.

Because of the capability to produce lifelike images, the Ray Tracing technique is often called the future of gaming. So if you own a Ray Tracing-ready gaming laptop now, you can future-proof yourself for years.

What is Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS)?

To make things easier to understand, let’s break the term into two parts “Deep Learning” and “Super Sampling”. The later term Super Sampling is a technique with which your gaming machine can render scenes in the games at a resolution beyond what your monitor supports. While rendering scenes in a larger resolution, it helps to smooth out the harsh edges and makes the scenes more convincing.

Now le t’s talk about “Deep Learning”. It’s a computational technique, in which the algorithm studies rendered sequence of images rendered by highly powerful supercomputers and learns how they are created. The algorithm is trained with tens of thousands of rendered sequences of images. So when brought in an application, the trained algorithm won’t require much graphics speed as it would do in the first place. So with DLSS at work, your gaming machine will produce beautiful high-res renders without putting much load on the graphics card. To put it simple, DLSS offers generalized improvements to the games’ visuals.

But unlike the DLSS, Ray Tracing is a graphics-heavy job. So with the Ray Tracing turned on, the frame rate could drop dramatically. Sometime, it may even fall below the desirable 60fps mark. But in such a scenario, DLSS helps to smoothen the performance. So with Ray Tracing and DLSS turned on, your gaming experience is surely going to get to the next level.
