intel gaming days 2022 event and contestCelebrate the fun and excitement of PC Gaming during Intel® Gaming Week. Best Buy Canada kicks it off with great deals on Intel-powered laptops and PC Gaming accessories that will boost your gaming experience in ways you can only imagine. Running from May 12th to 26th. Intel Gaming Week features some of the top names in PC gaming including MSI and Dell (who supplied the prizes for this contest). Read on to learn more about Intel’s most advanced processors, including Intel’s 12th Gen processors released this year. Then enter for your chance to win one of the two amazing laptops we are giving away.

Step up your gaming and leap ahead of the competition

Last year Intel released the amazing 11th Gen H Series processors bringing desktop calibre performance to laptops. Intel called it, “Desktop power for any desk” because Intel-powered laptops have evolved to deliver comparable performance of a bulky desktop so you can play high resolution, maximum frame rate games anytime and anywhere.

This year Intel announced an evolutionary leap in computing with their 12th Gen series of processors. We covered the main features of this announcement in an article on the blog at the beginning of this year. Gamers will get huge performance improvements thanks to the new hybrid architecture. The 12th Gen series mobile processors feature up to 6 Performance cores (P-cores) optimized for maximum responsiveness, and up to 8 Efficient cores (E-cores) optimized for threaded workloads and background tasks. Power gamers will be able to overclock both sets of cores to get faster performance than ever before.

Built for the next generation of gaming

Obviously, a gaming laptop is used for much more than just gaming. The ability for a laptop to keep gaming performance at maximum intensity while also performing complex background tasks is becoming more and more important. Many games require a steady connection to the internet during a game, for competing and for communicating with team mates in other cities; for downloading game components and add-ons; and more.

One of the most demanding auxiliary tasks that gamers do is live streaming or live recording for later playback of their gameplay. There are many people already streaming on Twitch and YouTube, and most are not able to stand out. The fact is, many gamers don’t have a machine powerful enough to keep their gaming at a peak level while they stream: the demands of streaming can dramatically impact the quality and consistency of gameplay, and thereby affect how engage their audience is. Imagine the challenges for a laptop to try to keep up with the complexities of a battle, the graphic demands and more, while at the same time capturing the action and sharing it over the internet. 12th Gen Intel® CoreTM powered laptops were built so you get the best of both worlds: the best gaming laptop and the best multitasking laptop ever created. Streaming with a laptop like this may be just what you need to stand out from the crowd.

  1. I wouldn’t stream my gameplay cause frankly, no one wants to see that. I’m not good at gaming even though I like it!

  2. If I had one of the laptops above, I would consider streaming gameplay in order to help other gamers get past difficult levels.

  3. I would never stream my gameplay for two reasons: first, I like to keep it to myself, and second, I don’t play games, so there’s that.

  4. I would love a new computer as my old laptop is over 15 years old. I don’t have a laptop or desktop high-tech enough to stream game, so couldn’t really plan to online game seriously or stream until I win this awesome computer. My birthday is a week away so I’d love to win a special something to improve my life!

  5. I would love a new computer, yeah I will try to streaming to really test out the new laptop and see how it goes.

  6. Oh gosh no – I wouldn’t stream because I’m really no good at any of it even though I love it! My kid might though 😉

  7. I don’t think I would stream because I just don’t have enough time to sit down and play for an extended period of time

  8. I would not consider streaming my gameplay if I had one of the new laptops because I am camera-shy and don’t have the skills to show off my gameplay to the world.

  9. Would definitely use either of these laptops powered with latest and greatest Intel 12th gen i7 chips will make all your streaming smooth. Large SSD and substantial RAM makes it easy to game and stream all from these great new laptops.

  10. I would definitely stream my game play. I am definitely in the market for a new laptop. A gaming laptop would be great for gaming at the in-laws.

  11. I wouldn’t stream my game play but I watch others stream to get more game playing hints. Maybe with a new better laptop I’d stream now.

  12. I might stream other things, but not my game play. My game play is terrible and just for my entertainment for now. I would just want to keep it fun.

  13. There are a lot of games in my Epic library that I am unable to play because my HD and Graphics card are not capable of playing them…sigh
