Reviews for the Aorus 15G XC

86.4% Aorus 15G XC Gaming-Laptop review: Features suffer setback in favor of an upgrade to RTX 3070 | Notebookcheck
Gigabyte's Aorus 15G has been updated with the new graphics unit RTX 3070. Unfortunately, the manufacturer seems to have made some cuts as a result of this upgrade, as several features from last year's model are no longer included. Can the new graphics performance outweigh these omissions or might the predecessor actually be the better choice?
75% Gigabyte’S Aorus 15G Is Great At Gaming, But Not Much Else
Source: The Verge English
This is a fantastic machine if all you want to do is get 60 frames per second (and often, better than that) in most of your games without tweaking many settings. Doing that for under $2,000 is an achievement worthy of praise. But if you care less about mobility and having a thin form factor that Gigabyte’s Aorus 15G provides, MSI’s GP66 Leopard takes the RTX 3070 even further. Its thicker, heavier chassis affords the chip even more headroom to get better performance in games — for the same $1,799 price, no less.

84% Gigabyte Aorus 15G XC Review — Lighter, Faster, Quieter… Better?
Source: Pokde English
I would have preferred a configuration with 16GB RAM and 1TB storage over this, but I guess GIGABYTE thinks that people appreciate more RAM over storage. With that said, you can always drop in another M.2 SSD into the GIGABYTE AORUS 15G XC to upgrade the storage, versus having to dispose of two sticks of memory because you had to upgrade the memory..

60% Gigabyte Aorus 15G (2021, RTX 3070) review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Yes, the Gigabyte Aorus 15G is powerful thanks to its brand-spankin’ new GPU, and the fact that it’s super portable and has a colorful 240Hz panel is appealing. However, a super-powerful GPU alone does not make a gaming laptop good. This machine falls short on battery life, as well as its display, webcam, keyboard, speakers and even its heating solution.

2.138 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).


77.08%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
