Acoustic Performance

The GE62 6QD is whisper quiet under idle conditions and didn’t exhibit any noticeable RPM increases which makes for a pleasant desktop experience. Additionally, the load output of 48.5 decibels is astonishing given the enclosed cooling solution and thin form-factor. When compared to other portable systems, the GE62 6QD is phenomenal.

Power Consumption

As you might expect, the mobile Skylake CPU and Maxwell-based GTX 960M combine in an extremely efficient manner and reports low-wattage demands during load and idle workloads. Interestingly, the power draw was higher compared to the more powerful GTX 970M and last-generation Intel processor. Although, the results are within a margin of error.

Battery Life

The system’s battery life is fairly mediocre but provides enough longevity to complete rudimentary tasks. It’s certainly passable given the laptop’s size and within my initial expectations.
