Reviews for the Aorus 15-XA-F74CDW
Source: Hardware Zone
The laptop has a few niggling issues that might turn away more picky buyers. Build quality is just average and the RGB backlighting is lacklustre. The fans are also ridiculously loud at max speed. Ultimately, the Aorus 15 is for someone who cares mainly about performance. Forget about portability and design be damned.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (Laptop): 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.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 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.
