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 would not stream, but would definitely be happy and over the moon with a new laptop for gaming, photo editing, and oh so much more.

  2. I would probably stream but rather than game streaming I would be streaming game development and content creation!

  3. I would probably only stream to friends if at all. I think it would be really fun to stream some multiplayer games to some friends!

  4. I would love the stream my game play but lol I am not really good at it, but I sure do like to talk

  5. I would absolutely use it for streaming and making gameplay for YouTube videos! I’ve been planning out a channel to make fun and informative videos but have been waiting to get a powerful computer to be able to play and create.

  6. I probably would stream. I don’t know what game I would play but, provided I had another monitor to hook up, I would be open to it. I think it would be too difficult to stream on just a laptop though

  7. I have attempted streaming before, but my current machine can’t handle it very well. But with a better laptop it would make it possible.

  8. I likely would not stream because I’m not great at talking about what I am doing while I’m gaming and the chatter of the player is one of the things that draws people in to watch a stream. Also sometimes I get distracted and might be working on an epic quest and then all of a sudden just exploring some random side quest.

  9. I use my old laptop all of the time, but I wouldn’t consider streaming with a new one. I just don’t have any free time!

  10. Yes I would consider streaming my gameplay on one of these laptops there fast and amazing quality

  11. Yes, I will consider streaming my gameplay if I had one of the new laptops and can get better at my gaming skills!

  12. i have been trying to win a gaming laptop for 3 years now. my son’s apartment caught on fire. He lost everything. all he got out with was one boot & one shoe. I’ve been trying to win him a new laptop ever since

  13. I definitely would consider streaming! I think it would be fun! It would help my connect with fellow gamers and meet new people…and I could use some gaming advice, not going to lie!

  14. Currently do not stream due to our access isn’t high speed so not fast enough plus the privacy issues and our computer is too old to handle it.

  15. I would definitely consider streaming my gameplay if I had either one of the new gaming laptops shown here because I wouldn’t have to worry about lag! 🙂

  16. I’d have to switch over from Xbox to PC master race because those gaming laptops look like absolute beasts and could support both streaming and Apex Legends simultaneously, removing the need for an extra device to stream from!! That would be awesome!
