Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
Mark benchmark results in isolation, it is well beaten by many of our RTX 2070 powered comparison devices. The G531GW has two fans that work with several heatpipes to dissipate heat generated by the CPU and GPU. Surface temperatures peaked at 52 °C while playing "The Witcher 3", although most of the device remained at between 41 °C and 50 °C. The speakers are a worthy replacement for external speakers.
