Well I have had this card for some time in my MSI AIO 27" touchscreen I use for cartooning animation and it works flawlessly using a modified win 8.1 a 4720HQ with 16gb of ram and a 512 SSD. I run adobe after effects CC, animate CC, sketchbook pro and artrage 4. it also plays games more than adequately like cemu, prey, no mans sky ; beyond, sekiro and hundreds of older games and emulators. I hope I can continue to use it for a few more years before I have to find something new. I may build a tower then keep the monitor for the drawing and painting capabilty? time will tell.

works well and handles great on most games but can’t go super hard on the graphics with graphically demanding games

for mobile gaming, if you can fine a laptop with this gpu plus anything around or above an i5 5700 it's honestly a very capable gpu

Honestly, at the moment, if you're going budget for laptop gaming, it will do its job and it will do it very well. This graphics card will run most games that you want it to run, at mostly high settings, and other games will run at max. As for around three or four years ago, this graphics card was very powerful for all types of gaming and could perform most tasks with ease. It compares with a GTX 1050Ti which during the time of this card was pretty good.
