Aorus 15P XC Laptop review: Lots of computing power in a compact case

TGP almost at the limit. With its Comet Lake octa-core processor and GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU, the Aorus 15P XC is able to display all current games smoothly. The other aspects are promising too: 32 GB of RAM (dual channel mode), space for two NVMe SSDs, and a responsive display (FHD, IPS, 240 Hz).
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Florian Glaser (translated by Katherine Bodner), 🇩🇪 🇮🇹 ...

Gigabyte has created a compact 15.6-inch gaming notebook that runs on an octa-core Core i7 10870H and a GeForce RTX 3070. The model is almost identical to its sister models Aorus 15G XC and Aorus 15P. Its competition includes devices such as the MSI GS66 Stealth 10UG, the Schenker XMG Neo 15, the Asus TUF Dash F15 FX516PR, and the Asus ROG Strix G15 G513QR.

As we have already reviewed two models with a very similar build, we will not be going into detail on the case, connectivity, input devices, speakers or display in this review - unless we note any differences. Please refer to our reviews of the Aorus 15P WB and Aorus 15G XC for details on these aspects.

Case - 15P XC slightly heavier than its sister models

The 15P XC, the 15P WB and the 15G XC all look the same at first and even at second glance. The case has the same design and port positioning. However, there are some very small differences: The 15P XC is 4 mm higher and around 200 grams heavier than its two sister models. The thicker case of the 15P XC can be recognized by the additional ventilation slots along the back.

Display - 240-Hz IPS

While the contrast ratio (1028:1) of the 15.6-inch display with stable viewing angles and high response rates (FHD, IPS, 240 Hz) is almost within the ideal range ( 1000:1), the average brightness is too low at 278 nits. We consider values above 300 nits to be good. Thanks to its Pantone certification, the display already offers great colors ex-works. Unfortunately, the display uses PWM to regulate brightness below 25 percent at a frequency of 24040 Hz.

This is the same panel as in the Aorus 15G XC. It's quite normal for the results to differ slightly. Two displays of the same build never match 100 percent.

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
9.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.2 ms rise
↘ 4.4 ms fall
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. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.2 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
11.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 5.2 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.4 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 detected 24040 Hz ≤ 25 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 24040 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 25 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 24040 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9651 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

Performance - no issues for the next few years

The Gigabyte Aorus 15P XC is a 15.6-inch gaming notebook that can display all current games smoothly and also does a good job in all other areas of use.

Testing conditions

The preinstalled Aorus Control Center enables users to set energy profiles, among other things. We used the "auto" option (with activated AI) for our tests. This lets the Control Center select the suitable settings itself. Fan control was set to "normal". 

Processor

The octa-core Core i7 10870H (Comet Lake) processor has a base clock rate of 2.2 GHz that can be increased to 4.2 GHz (eight cores) or 5 GHz (one core) via Turbo Boost. It supports hyperthreading with two threads per core.

The CPU tests of the CineBench R15 benchmarks are worked at 4 GHz (multi-thread) and 4 to 4.7 GHz (single-thread). The CPU reduces its clock rate to 1.7 GHz (multi and single-thread) when running on battery.

Multi-thread (on mains)

Single-thread (on mains)
Single-thread (on mains)

We run the multi-thread version of the Cinebench R15 benchmark in a loop for at least 30 minutes on mains to find out how the CPU turbo fares under continuous load. Today's test unit continues to use the turbo at a high level.

System Performance

The fast and smooth system should offer sufficient performance for the coming years in all areas of use - gaming, image processing, video cutting, office and internet use. The results of the PCMark benchmarks are good too. 

RAM (DDR4-3200) of the 15.6-inch notebook runs in dual channel mode. The two memory banks are each occupied by a 16-GB module.

Graphics Performance

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Mobile GPU - Benchmarks and SpecsWhile the GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop is positioned at the top end of the scale, its name alone does not give any indication of its actual performance. Manufacturers can individually set the TGP within a range defined by Nvidia. This is what really decides what level of performance the GPU will have to offer.   

Gigabyte almost maxes out its GPU with a TGB of 130 Watt (the maximum set by Nvidia is 140 Watt). The manufacturer has stated this value on its global website. Our tests confirmed the TGB of 130 Watt. 

As a result of the higher TGB, the 15P reaches significantly better benchmark results than its competitors equipped with the same GPU such as the MSI GS66 Stealth 10UG (TGP: 95 Watt) and the Asus TUF Dash F15 FX516PR (TGP: 85 Watt). The 15P can also outperform its sister model with almost the same build, Aorus 15G XC, which has a TGP of 105 Watt. We have created an overview of all RTX 3070 Laptops including their TGPs.

We ran the game "Witcher 3" for around 60 minutes at Full-HD resolution and maximum quality settings in order to find out whether the frame rates remain constant over a long period of time. The character in the game did not move throughout this test. We did not register a drop in frame rates.
