Reviews for the Aorus 15 X9

85.6% Aorus 15 (i7-8750H, RTX 2070) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
11 percent smaller, 11 percent lighter, and at least 17 percent faster graphics performance. The Aorus 15 is the long-awaited update to the aging Aorus X5 series albeit with a few auxiliary features missing.

The Aorus features decent components throughout, plus its ergonomically better than rivals, too. It’s far too loud, though, and suffers some build quality issues – as well as a screen with mediocre contrast. The Aorus has plenty of power, but if you’re looking for a brilliant all-rounder then this isn’t it.

The full-power RTX 2070 is the start of the show. It’s got enough power to play anything at 1080p, and enough ability to handle the 144Hz screen and Nvidia ray-tracing. It also opens a solid lead over the RTX 2070 Max-Q included in most rivals.

Aorus 15 X9 Review
Source: Hardwareheaven English
Our Aorus 15 X9 review demonstrates just how good the full-power, mobile RTX 2070 is – especially when compared to the Max-Q version used in the Razer and in numerous other machines. The RTX 2070 inside the Aorus is significantly quicker than the Razer’s GPU in all gaming benchmarks, which means it’s got enough power to today’s top-tier games – alongside ample grunt for high refresh-rate gaming and ray-tracing.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower. The refresh version in April 2020 bears the same name, but is slightly higher clocked.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


i7-8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.4 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Aorus:

This company was founded as a subsidiary of Gigabyte in Tawain in 2014. The logo is a falcon head, since the name Aorus is derived from the ancient Egyptian falcon god Horus. Aorus primarily produces gaming laptops as well as computer accessories.

Since the market shares are still low, there are also few reviews. However, the products achieve relatively good ratings (as of 2016).


78.53%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
