Recommended Posts

D side has bigger difference, besides of larger surface of holes for airflow, the based robber came with bigger size and taller, 

that helps more for airflow to reduce the heat more effectively. Built-in 4-Cell battery with 82Whr, larger than GS63 as well.

This GS65 8RF used 2 SAMSUNG MZVLB512HAJQ with RAID0.



Seq Read - 3501.5 MB/s?Write - 3256.0 MB/s

4K - 64Thrd Read - 1061.38 MB/s?Write - 967.93 MB/s



This SSD should be PM981 512GB, above are the performance with RAID0.

But the chipset support up to PCI-e Gen3 x4 bandwidth limitation, not like SATA3 RAID to double the performance. 

So the Max. performance is up to 3500+ MB/s around, plus the storage of 4k test will be lower because the notebook power saving technology is not able to manual disable.

But if we consider in the notebook field, PM981 of RAID0 already the highest speed level of M.2 performance.


Embedded with 2 kinds of GPU, one is Intel Core i7-8750H of built-in HD630 graphics.

The 2nd one is nVIDIA Geforce GTX 1070 with 8GB GDDR5 VRAM of Max-Q versions.
