It would run modern games, perhaps not at desirable settings in all cases, but the GPU is a Kepler, so only two generations behind, still fully supported.
I wasn't really digging into the details of each model, and I don't go much for high end laptops. Saw quite a few ASUS and MSI models $1000-1100 with an i7-6700HQ and a GTX1060 3GB. Probably making room for the 7th gen CPUs.
Newegg has the best laptop search, if you find models you like, then you can wander over to Amazon for a price check. Doesn't look like any decent sales are going on for this class of laptop.

Companies like Sager that offer Clevo chassis direct (basically the company that makes gaming laptops) you can get a pretty customized setup. Even desktop class processors, though now the OEMs are offering that as well.
