It can handle almost anything you can throw at it.
The CIVILTOP G672FB doesn’t come with any OS preinstalled and allows you to choose which system to install. For some users, this will be an advantage and for others exactly the opposite, but at least you will be the one who decides on which OS the notebook will boot up for the first time.
The display featured it’s an IPS screen of 15.6 Inches that supports a 1920×1080 full HD resolution, it has a widescreen format with 16:9 aspect ratio as expected, and the viewing angles are good. Besides that, there is not too much that can be said except that the overall quality of the picture it’s perfect to enjoy movies and games.
As you would have realized by taking a look at the pictures, the CIVILTOP G672FB features a modern design that is aesthetically pleasing and gamers will love, but that’s not all because the body is made of aluminum alloy which significantly improves the quality of the physical properties. The body has the following size dimensions 15.08 x 10.04 x 0.93 inches and a weight around 2.349 kg, in conclusion, the average size, and weight for 15.6-inch notebooks. On the right side, the following inputs can be found: an SD card slot, Mini HDMI slot, two USB 3.0 ports, and the DC Jack to plug the charger. On the left side, you will find: the traditional RJ45 Lan connector, two USB 2.0 ports for retro compatibility, a 3.5 mm headphone Jack, an Audio Jack for external speakers, and a microphone Jack.
Another key element featured by this notebook is the backlit keyboard, which holds a cool red glow that will allow the user to type (or play) in dark environments or at night.
It’s important to point out that the CIVILTOP G672FB features a dual fan system to keep the CPU and GPU temperature cool, which is suitable for long gaming sessions without having to worry too much about overheating. Also, the disposition of the heat vents is behind the laptop’s body and not at the sides, therefore, you won’t feel directly the heat on your hands while holding the notebook. So don’t you worry and play all you want with your friends on LAN tournaments, of course, you can do it online as well but it’s a laptop after all, and nothing beats the experience of playing in the same room with your buddies.
The CIVILTOP G672FB features an Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad-core processor running at 2.4 GHz of clock frequency and can reach up to 3.5 GHz with turbo boost. This chip is based on the latest Skylake architecture for Intel’s CPUs which is slightly better than the previous Haswell and Broadwell architecture. Also, it counts with 6 MB of Smart Cache.
This CPU also takes advantage of its Hyper-Threading features, which gives the cores and additional performance gain by optimizing the data processing of individual cores. The CPU has a 64 bits architecture, this may be something too obvious to point out, but you need to keep this in mind while installing an operative system since this laptop doesn’t have a preinstalled OS.
Leaving those technical details behind, we can tell you that this is a powerful CPU made with the latest technology that can easily handle the most demanding programs and excessive multitasking like if were nothing. This CPU can handle almost anything you can possibly imagine and perform several tasks at the same time without breaking a sweat.
This chip also integrates an HD Graphics 530 GPU, however, you won’t be using this unit whatsoever since the dedicated GPU featured in this rig it’s much, much better than this, which lead us to the next point of the CIVILTOP G672FB, the GPU.
The CIVILTOP G672FB has a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M GPU with 4 GB of VRAM. This GPU is an upper mid-range graphics card that supports DirectX 11 and 12 (FL 11_0). It also supports Shader 5.0 and all the NVidia’s features such as PhysX, CUDA, SLI, GeForce Experience and Nvidia Hairworks. As we stated before, the GPU of this notebook has 4 GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM, which is a generous amount that makes this graphics card suitable to perform the most demanding tasks.
The GTX 960M won’t let you down, this is one of the best graphics cards for notebooks out there or at least one of the best you can get without having spent two thousand dollars or more. The GPU is also capable of playing 4k video, but for that, you would need to use another display since the maximum resolution supported by the notebook’s screen is 1920×1080.
When it comes to performance the CIVILTOP G672FB is capable of delivering a smooth and detailed visual experience, this laptop can handle videos, images and movies easily and what is more, video editing and gaming will work smoothly on this notebook. If you are more a desktop person and you want further insight on what the GPU can do, then we are glad to tell you that this GPU is the mobile equivalent of a Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti, actually, it performs 10% better than the 750 Ti.
To give further examples, the benchmarks for this GPU have shown that is capable of delivering 30+ frames on medium settings and 1080p resolution on games like the Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 with the FXAA on, and even 40 frames in the Witcher 3 if the Nvidia’s Hairwork option is turned off, after all, you won’t have time to appreciate Geralt’s hair while fighting monsters or adventuring. Other games like Dirt rally (2016) or MGSV: The Phantom pain that are less demanding can be played at 60 frames per second on high settings. With that said, you already know that the CIVILTOP G672FB can become your portable gaming station for you to take anywhere and enjoy long sessions of gaming.
This Built has been provided with 8 GB of DDR4L memory Ram, which alongside the Quad-core CPU guarantees a smooth experience for multitasking and working with demanding programs without lag.
The internal storage of the CIVILTOP G672FB it’s one of few weak points we have found on this rig. The SATA Hard drive has a capacity of only 500GB or even less given the fact that a portion will be occupied by the OS, also this is a 5400Rpm HDD, which means that is not precisely the fastest of its kind, it could have definitely been better regarding the HDD, especially when you consider the price of this notebook.
Connectivity and network
The CIVILTOP G672FB features the standard connectivity of 2016 notebooks and a slightly plus, it supports: LAN, SD cards, HDMI output, USB 2.0/3.0, microphone Jack, audio Jack and 3.5mm headphone jack.
When it comes to wireless connections you’ll find the usual features: WIFI 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0.
The CIVILTOP G672FB features a 2.0 MP on the front that is suitable for Skype Video calls or taking selfies from time to time.
The notebook is powered by a 7200mAh battery that according to the manufacturer it can deliver up to 4 hours of continuous video playback, of course, to deliver such duration you would need to turn plane mode on, however, it would be irresponsible of us to state an exact amount of time since that will always depend on the usage and the energy settings, but what it’s for sure is that a battery of this capacity can deliver a consistent and extended lifespan above the average run time of notebooks batteries.

The CIVILTOP G672FB defines itself as a gaming laptop and it is certainly a good one, and can be even more than since it features an Intel Core i7-6700HQ CPU of 6th generation, which makes this built suitable to perform multitasking and running heavy applications or programs. This notebook indeed constitutes a great work and gaming station that can be taken anywhere. Another strong point that needs to be addressed it’s the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M GPU that brings many possibilities to the table, from movies and video editing to gaming and more. Just by looking at the specs you can be sure that it will perform very decent on today standards concerning GPU demanding programs and recent games alike.
In the downside, there are three major aspects that stand out. Firstly, the storage since it’s a regular SATA hard drive with only 500GB of capacity and a rotational speed of 5400 rpm, in our humble opinion an SSD of a similar capacity would’ve been a better choice for the built since a solid state drive performs several times faster than the traditional HDD, therefore, the current hard drive represents a bottleneck for both its capacity and speed. Secondly, the CIVILTOP G672FB does not come with any operative system pre-installed whatsoever, for such reason, you will need to install one by yourself. And last, this laptop doesn’t have CD or DVD drive, although the usage of disks has decreased we consider that it would’ve been a nice feature for some people.
However, in an overall picture the CIVILTOP G672FB represents a great choice if you are looking for a reliable notebook for your studies, work or gaming activities.
