Aorus 15P WB in review: Compact gaming powerhouse offers very good battery life

Successful. The Aorus 15P WB brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the screen (Full HD, IPS, 144 Hz). In addition, there's an NVMe SSD, 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode), and battery runtimes that many office laptops can't reach.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Florian Glaser (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪 🇮🇹 ...

The Aorus 15P WB is a slim, compact gaming laptop in the 15.6-inch format. The device can definitely be considered a watered-down, lower-priced version of the previously reviewed Aorus 15G XB. The test model provided to us has a Core i7-10750H processor and a GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics core on board. Competitors include devices like the Acer Predator Triton 300 PT315-52, the Dell G5 15 SE 5505, and the Asus ROG Strix G15 G512LW.

Case - A plastic chassis for the 15P

The 15P can't hide its rather strong resemblance to the Aorus 15G XB, but the two devices are not identical in construction. While the case of the 15G is made of metal, Gigabyte uses silver-gray plastic for the 15P. The devices have the very narrow display bezel in common, which contributes to its attractiveness. The palm rest and the lid's back have smooth surfaces. The laptop doesn't have a maintenance hatch. Moreover, the battery is firmly installed.

The laptop proves to be well manufactured for the most part. The lower corners of the lid as well as the rear corners of the two "horns", which are found on the base unit's back, deserve criticism. These are very sharp. There is definitely a risk of injury here. Furthermore, the case should have a greater rigidity overall. The hinges keep the lid firmly in position, but they let it wobble a bit. Opening the lid with one hand is possible. The maximum aperture angle is about 135 degrees.

Within our comparison field, the Aorus 15P represents the most compact and lightest device together with the Acer Predator Triton 300.

Connectivity - No Thunderbolt on board

The 15.6-incher provides a well-rounded range of interfaces. The four USB ports (3x Type-A, 1x Type-C) work according to the USB 3.2 Gen 1 standard. In addition, there are two video outputs (HDMI 2.0, Mini DisplayPort 1.4), a combo audio port, and a Gigabit Ethernet port. The laptop does not offer Thunderbolt.

SD card reader

The SD memory card reader (reference card: Toshiba Exceria Pro SDXC 64 GB UHS-II) is a very fast model with maximum transfer rates of 208 MB/s (transferring 250 jpg image files of 5 MB each) and 243 MB/s (copying large data blocks). It doesn't accommodate memory cards completely; they protrude a good 14 mm.

Communication

The WLAN chip (Intel AX200) supports the 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax standards and offers Bluetooth 5 functionality. The data rates determined under optimal conditions (no other WLAN devices nearby, short distance between laptop and server PC) are very good. Wired network connections are handled by a Gigabit Ethernet controller from Realtek's RTL8168/8111 family. It performs its tasks smoothly.

Webcam

The webcam (0.9 MP) produces images with a maximum resolution of 1280x720 pixels. Moreover, there are issues with color accuracy. With a color deviation of almost 18, the target (Delta E less than 3) is missed. The camera isn't located in the display frame but in the base unit instead - above the keyboard.

Accessories

The laptop comes with the usual documents: A quick-start guide and warranty information. Furthermore, a thermal pad for a second M.2 SSD is found in the box.

Maintenance

The laptop doesnt have a maintenance hatch. The bottom cover needs to be removed in order to access the inside. After removing all screws on the underside of the device, the bottom cover can be taken off - at least that was the case with our test device. A grout finishing tool or a flat spatula should be at hand, just in case.

Warranty

Gigabyte grants the laptop a two-year warranty. We couldn't find any warranty extensions.

Input devices - Aorus laptop with backlit keyboard

Keyboard

The 15P comes with a backlit chiclet keyboard that includes a number pad. The smooth keys offer a medium travel and a clear pressure point. The quite crisp key resistance is pleasing. Moreover, the keyboard yields slightly during typing. It didn't prove to be overly annoying, though. Overall, Gigabyte delivers a keyboard that is suitable for everyday use here.

Touchpad

A multitouch-capable ClickPad (10.6 x 7.1 cm) serves as a mouse replacement. Its smooth surface makes it easy for fingers to glide on it. It also responds to inputs in the corners. The pad offers a short travel and a clear pressure point.

Display - 144 Hz IPS

The matte 15.6-inch display has a native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. The contrast (833:1) and brightness (267.7 cd/m²) are too low. We consider values beyond 1,000:1 and 300 cd/m², respectively, to be good. The 144 Hz panel used here scores points with fast response times.

* ... smaller is better

Already out of the box, the display shows good color reproduction. With a color deviation of 2.72, the target (Delta E less than 3) is met. The display doesn't suffer from a blue tint. Moreover, improvements are achieved by means of calibration: The color deviation drops to 2.09, and the grayscales are displayed in a more balanced way. The AdobeRGB (65%) and sRGB (90%) color spaces are not completely reproduced.

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.
       Response Time Black to White
9.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.8 ms rise

The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 10 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 8 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.7 ms).

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: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9725 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

The viewing-angle stable IPS panel can be read from any position. Outdoors, reading the display is possible when the sun doesn't shine too brightly.

The preinstalled Aorus Control Center offers the option to set an energy profile, among other things. We use the "Auto" option here (with active AI function). Subsequently, the Control Center chooses the appropriate settings itself.

Processor

The Core i7-10750H hexa-core processor (Comet Lake) operates at a base clock of 2.6 GHz. An increase to 4.3 GHz (six cores) and 5 GHz (one core) is possible via Turbo. Hyper-Threading (two threads per core) is supported.

The processor executes the multithread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark at 4.2 to 4.3 GHz. The single-thread test is run at 4.3 to 5 GHz. On battery power, the CPU operates at 2 GHz (multithread and single-thread).

Multithread (plugged in)
Multithread (plugged in)
Single-thread (plugged in)
Single-thread (plugged in)

We verify if the CPU Turbo is consistently used when plugged in by running the Cinebench R15 benchmark's multithread test in a continuous loop for at least 30 minutes. Turbo is used at a fairly high level.

Graphics card

The dedicated GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics core is a high-end GPU. This is an efficiency-tuned version of the regular RTX 2070 that is intended for thin and light laptops. The GPU is supported by fast GDDR6 memory (8,192 MB). The 3DMark results are at a normal level for the GPU installed here. The UHD Graphics 630 GPU integrated into the processor is active, and the laptop works with Nvidia's Optimus graphics-switching solution. The GeForce GPU can be disabled in the computer's BIOS.

Nvidia specifies a clock range between 900 MHz (base) and 1,125 MHz (boost) for this DirectX 12 GPU. Higher speeds are feasible when a predetermined temperature and/or energy threshold is not reached. We register a maximum of 1,939 MHz. Our The Witcher 3 test is run at an average of 1,383 MHz.

Emissions - Noise levels are acceptable

Noise emissions

The two fans work consistently at low speeds in idle mode. The resulting noise is completely acceptable. Under load, the fans turn up, though. We register maximum sound pressure levels of 45 dB(A) (stress test) and 43 dB(A) (our The Witcher 3 test), respectively. The whole situation manifests itself in a constant, tolerable fan noise. A headset is not an absolute necessity.

Temperature

Our stress test (Prime95 and FurmMark run for at least an hour) is run by the CPU and GPU at 2.8 to 2.9 GHz and 1,230 MHz, respectively. The stress test is an extreme scenario that doesn't occur in everyday use. We perform this test to check whether the system remains stable even under full load.

The Aorus laptop heats up considerably under load. During the stress test, we registered temperatures above 60 °C (~140 °F) at several measuring points on the underside. Furthermore, the temperature increases slightly less during our The Witcher 3 test. The laptop should not be placed on the lap in either case. In everyday use, however, the temperatures are within the green range.

Verdict

The Aorus 15P WB-7DE1130SH, provided by Gigabyte Germany.
The Aorus 15P WB-7DE1130SH, provided by Gigabyte Germany.

With the Aorus 15P WB, Gigabyte has released a compact 15.6-inch gaming laptop that brings all modern games smoothly onto the screen thanks to the Core i7-10750H processor and the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics core. Full HD resolution and high to maximum quality settings can usually be selected.

All in all, the Aorus 15P WB is a well-rounded gaming laptop that doesn't have any major weaknesses.

The hardware is supported by 16 GB of RAM (2x 8 GB, dual-channel mode, max. 64 GB) and a 512 GB NVMe SSD. The storage capacity is not exactly generous for a gaming laptop. A second NVMe SSD can be retrofitted if necessary, though. Since the bottom cover can be removed without any difficulty, upgrades should be easy.

The display (Full HD, IPS, 144 Hz) offers stable viewing angles, a matte surface, fast response times, good color reproduction, and decent color-space coverage. However, the maximum brightness and contrast should be higher. The keyboard (RGB backlighting) proved to be suitable for everyday use. Furthermore, the excellent battery life shouldn't go unmentioned. One battery charge is enough for practical runtimes of 7 to 8 hours - many office laptops can't pull this off.

Price and availability

The Aorus 15P WB is currently available in the WB-7DE1130SH configuration (Core i7-10750H, GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q, 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB SSD) at a price of just under 1,540 Euros (~$1,891) at Computeruniverse.net.
