Aorus 15 YE5 review: The high-end gaming laptop for money savers

An RTX 3080 Ti for US$1,500. Aorus has made use of a last-gen CPU and GPU in order to market the ex-flagship RTX 3080 Ti for a price of only US$1,500. In turn, the laptop's case and connectivity are actually quite modern. Will you have to make any further compromises for the price, or is the Aorus YE5 a real high-end hidden gem for money savers?

Thanks to its low price alone, the Aorus 15 YE is already an interesting gaming laptop. From the outside, it looks modern and slim — the affordable package even includes Thunderbolt 4 and DDR5. On the inside, in contrast, (strong) last-gen hardware is installed, namely a not-quite high-end Core i5-12500H and the previous Nvidia flagship model RTX 3080 Ti. This all makes the Aorus 15 YE5 one of the strongest gaming laptops you can get for US$1,500.

Despite its CPU and GPU being from the previous generation, the Aorus has to defend itself against current competitors to show whether it can keep up and whether it actually succeeds in giving you good value for your money. Subsequently, we will be pitting it against current laptops with the RTX 4060 or the RTX 4070, such as the Aorus 15 BSF (RTX 4070), Captiva Advanced Gaming I74-121 (RTX 4060), HP Victus 16 (RTX 4070), HP Omen 16 (RTX 4080) and the much more expensive Dell XPS 15 9530 (RTX 4070).

Case & connectivity: Modern, but kept to a minimum

Visually, the Aorus looks quite modern and attractive. This is thanks to its matte black, slim-appearing design — although the laptop isn't actually that slim in reality (up to 27 mm). At the same time, it is sleek while still remaining unique, for example, as a result of its structure along the back fan grate and the small, orange colorings which appear there, or its specially designed beveled edges. The silver Aorus logo draws your attention to the top of the device. The lid has a little notch along the front top edge which houses the webcam and speakers – plus, it gives you a really good grip when opening the laptop with one hand.

All sides of the case are made from smooth plastic. This looks great but isn't as resistant to being twisted compared to certain competitors. The keyboard doesn't have any give when you are typing on it, meaning its stability is fine in total.

We didn't open up the Aorus, as the two Torx screws are covered by a sticker and we didn't want to damage these in the interests of our loaner Cyberport.

Connectivity

LAN cable at the front on the side a mouse is used is less than ideal

The Aorus laptop's connectivity options are modern, while also being kept to a minimum. Of the three USB ports, only one is Type-A, which is not quite enough. In turn, one of the two Type-C ports has Thunderbolt 4 support. Aside from a fourth USB connection, the device is also missing an SD card reader, a Kensington lock and a dedicated DisplayPort (2x available via USB-C).

Despite its few ports, they aren't laid out terribly well — the RJ45 port for rigid LAN cables is positioned on the right and toward the front. The space on the back of the Aorus is, as usual, not used. It only accommodates the fan outlets.

WiFi and Webcam

Its WLAN transmission rates are among the highest in the comparison field in both the 6 GHz (WiFi 6E) and 5 GHz networks.

Unfortunately, the device's webcam is still last-gen: It only has a resolution of 720p, its color deviations are quite high and there is no shutter in the Control Center.

Input devices - More than solid, but dark special key labelling

The key layout is very tidy — the keyboard is slightly lowered into the base of the laptop. The arrow keys are also normally sized and there is a numeric keypad directly to the right.

The keys only have a low to medium lift, but they still feel surprisingly comfortable when typing, which is also due to their decent feedback. Their noises when typing are on the quieter side, so they are also suitable for low-noise environments.

The keys' backlighting is capable of various RGB effects, but it cannot be set individually for each key — although these can light up in different colors for certain effects (Rain Drop). Practical: If you press the fn key, all keys that can be combined with fn to create special functions are illuminated. However, only the normal key labels are illuminated (e.g. "F7"), but not their special function ("mute"), leading to the special function of an F key not being recognizable in dark environments.

The sufficiently large touchpad (21.1 x 7.6 cm) is nice and smooth, even if your hands aren't totally dry. The integrated click buttons require quite a lot of force, which means that its pressure point is clear. The clicking noises are moderate.

Display - 1,440p with good color accuracy

The Aorus laptop's matte WQHD display is made by Chi Mei and it was already used in the Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 in 2021. This was a success, so it doesn't seem outdated in 2023 either. Its resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels is just as impressive as its 165-Hz refresh rate, its relatively fast response times and its color space coverage (100% sRGB, 97% Display P3). The screen's brightness and contrast, on the other hand, are average. Alternatively, there is also a Full HD model with a 360-Hz refresh rate.

Less good is the very visible backlight bleeding on the bottom left corner and along the top right edge. However, PWM is not used for brightness control. Its response times are mediocre at best.

Ex works, the display doesn't come optimally calibrated but our calibration using the X-Rite Fab measuring device and the Calman software reduces the DeltaE value (significant for (color) deviations) to well below 1 — both for grayscale and colors. Together with its good color space coverage (see last row of images below), the display is also suitable for semi-professional image and video editing.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17915 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Thanks to its acceptable brightness of over 300 nits and its matt surface, the laptop's screen content is still easy to see in shaded surroundings.

Performance - Last gen still delivers

Last-gen CPU and GPU power the system. The older Core i5-12500H has access to 16 GB of modern DDR5 4800 RAM and a 1-TB NVMe SSD from Gigabyte. Together with its RTX 3080 Ti, the Aorus 15 YE5 can definitely be classed as a high-end gamer — despite its last generation and mid-range CPU.

 

Testing conditions

Ex works, the laptop didn't come preinstalled with a Control Center — it should or can be downloaded from the Gigabyte support website if needed.

The Gigabyte Control Center contains lots of important settings that control performance, keyboard backlighting and SSD. The menu could do with being a little better structured, as the home screen doesn't seem to display any useful information — you are supposed to first select either the laptop itself or the SSD for more information. However, you can do the same in the relevant menus, which is why the home screen in particular seems nonsensical. We also missed the option to switch GPUs.

Otherwise, there are performance modes as well as fan curves, a separately adjustable performance mode and various other options. We used the gaming mode for our benchmarks. When using the even more powerful turbo mode, the fans always run at full speed.

A word about its standby mode: With Aorus (including the Aorus 15G), it seems to be common for the laptop to switch to standby as soon as the laptop lid is closed slightly. This is extremely annoying, for example, if you are using an external monitor and would like to fold the laptop lid forward slightly. However, the system switches off at around 40 to 45 degrees, which is really far too early and it gets on your nerves. A laptop should only switch off when it is actually closed and not halfway there.

The laptop features an Alder Lake CPU — the Core i5-12500H — with 4 P and 8 E cores. This adds up to 8 cores and 16 threads in total. The old upper mid-range CPU has saved the manufacturer money.

During the Cinebench R15 Loop, its performance sank a little within the first two runs, then remained stable.

Throughout all CPU tests, it became clear that Gen 13 offers a significant (but not enormous) speed advantage over Gen 12.

The Captiva with an i5-13500H came about 13 per cent ahead. The other competitors with the better i7-13700H ranged from being a low 8 per cent better (HP Victus) to a noticeable 22 per cent better (Aorus 15 BSF).

DPC latency

As the Control Center doesn't offer a balanced mode, we tested the laptop using the meeting and creator modes. The former showed some latency issues when opening multiple browser tabs — these became even higher during the 4K/60-fps YouTube video, resulting in eight dropped frames.

If you think that this might change using the more powerful creator mode, then you are unfortunately wrong. We already noted increased latencies when opening the browser. On the other hand, the video ran with only one dropped frame.

Storage devices

The installed Gigabyte AG470S1TB-SI B10 with 1 TB storage is a fast high-end PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD. In our SSD best list, it currently occupies position 3, which is excellent.

Within the Aorus 15 YE5, it may not be able to make use of its full potential (coming in 12 per cent behind the reference model), however, it is still faster than its competitors' SSDs. The only exception to this is the current-gen Aorus 15. It makes use of the same SSD but it is 28 per cent faster. Even so, our test sample's performance is still great and above all else, it remained constant and showed no throttling issues during continuous use.
