As expected, the arrival of new CPU and graphics options usually lead to the unveiling of equally new gaming laptops. For the local high-performance laptop outfit, Illegear, the company has launched two new models in conjunction with the launch of the 9th Gen Intel Core H-series processors as well as NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti and GTX 1650 graphics for notebooks.
The first model is called Prodigy and it carries a 15.6-inch Full HD 144Hz IPS display. On another hand, there is also the Rogue which is equipped with a 17.3-inch Full HD IPS display that has a similar 144Hz panel.
Outside of these differences and slight variations on their physical design, both Prodigy and Rogues carry almost the same set of hardware. For example, both laptops are powered by Intel Core i7-9750H processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti with 6GB GDDR6 VRAM.
They can also be fitted with a 2.5-inch storage drive alongside up to two M.2 2280 PCIe Gen 3 x4 solid state drive. Pre-installed with Creative Sound Blaster Sound 5 audio suite, these laptops are equipped with a pair of 2W speakers although there is also additional 2W subwoofer on Rogue. Both Prodigy and Rogue also come standard with the same 46Whr battery and 180W power adapter.
Despite the similarities between their components, the Prodigy is still noticeably lighter at 1.75kg as compared to Rogue which weights 2.35kg. Interestingly though, their base price is very close to each other since Prodigy has a starting price of RM 5199 while Rogue can be obtained from RM 5299 onwards.
Both of these new gaming laptops can be ordered immediately through Illegear’s official website right here.
