Reviews for the Aorus 15G XB

86.5% Aorus 15G XB in review: Successful gaming machine with mechanical keyboard | Notebookcheck
The Aorus 15G XB brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the matte 15.6-inch screen (240 Hz, Full HD, IGZO). The rest of the equipment is also right: NVMe SSD, 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode), a mechanical keyboard, and a Thunderbolt 3 port.
Gigabyte AORUS 15G XB (Intel 10875H + RTX 2070 Super Max-Q) Review - Good Performance, Nice Display
Source: Tech PowerUP English
Generally speaking, my only major gripe with the unit boils down to its lackluster speakers, other than the less-than-stellar gaming performance on its battery, which is typical for laptops anyways. The sound is somewhat muffled, and the tonal range seems a bit limited. While serviceable, this is another unit where a pair of nice headphones will be a massive upgrade, but that too is to be expected. It is due to the limited space in a laptop to begin with, and the size of laptop speakers and how they are set up will never have the sound quality compare to a nice set of headphones or proper speakers. There is also the webcam—it is a 720p option with terrible image quality compared to dedicated units. At the end of the day, it feels tacked on in order to check off a box on the feature list. It does at least include a sliding cover as a privacy measure, which is a nice touch.

The size and weight mean it can indeed be used on your lap, although you will find a table more comfortable, and it will slip inside a backpack or shoulder bag without difficulty. Battery life is good, gamers might be able to take advantage of the 240Hz screen and everyone should love the mechanical keyboard.

Aorus' elite 15.6-incher, the 15G, offers top-shelf gaming performance and a splash of uniqueness from its Omron-switch mechanical keyboard, all for slightly less money than its competition.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,560 shaders. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2070 Super to achieve a much lower power consumption. The TGP is specified at 80 Watts and therefore significantly lower than the RTX 2070 Super Mobile (115 Watt).

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.


i7-10875H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates eight processor cores clocked at 2.3 - 5,1 GHz (all 8 cores up to 4.3 GHz) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

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


2.257 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. According to employees, the first letter of HORUS was changed to "A" to represent the brand as "A team". 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).


83.88%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
