Aorus 15X ASF review: Gaming laptop with RTX 4070 power and stamina

A success. With the right settings, the Aorus 15X allows for gaming with low noise emissions - despite its powerful hardware. Additionally, the laptop features three video outputs, Thunderbolt 4 and great runtimes.

The Aorus 15X - a midrange gaming laptop - is powered by a Raptor Lake Core i7 and an RTX 4070 GPU. The total package retails for around $2,099. Its competitors include devices such as the Razer Blade 15 OLED (Early 2022), the Asus ROG Strix G17 G713PI, the MSI Katana 17 B13VFK and the Acer Predator Helios 300.

Case - Gigabyte utilize a mix of materials

Only the back of the lid is made out of matte black metal - the base unit is made out of plastic. Gigabyte didn't add any fancy visual embellishments apart from the pattern which is etched into the smooth case surface. An LED strip (RGB, customizable) at the back of the base unit and the illuminated keys (RGB) add a pop of color to the device.

The case is put together flawlessly - there are no material excesses and the gap dimensions are all correct. The base unit can only be slightly twisted, the lid more so. But this all remains within a normal range. The battery (screwed in - not glued) and the rest of the laptop's innards can be accessed when the bottom shell is removed. The hinges hold the lid firmly in place and the maximum opening angle is around 130 degrees. It is possible to open the lid with one hand. 

The 15X can be placed pretty much in the middle range of all the 15.6 inch laptops: It is neither compact, nor is it particularly massive. The same thing can be said for its weight.

Connectivity - the Aorus computer features Thunderbolt 4

The 15X has two USB-A ports (USB 3.2 Gen 2) and one USB-C port (Thunderbolt 4). The latter supports Power Delivery and can output a DisplayPort signal. This, along with the HDMI port (2.1) and the dedicated Mini DisplayPort (1.4), makes for three video outputs. The computer doesn't feature an SD card reader.

The two dedicated video outputs, as well as the ethernet port, can be found on the back of the device. This means that the cables will not get in your way when you are using the laptop.

Communication

Under optimum conditions (no additional WLAN devices in the vicinity, small distance between laptop and server PC), the laptop's WLAN transfer rates are good, however, they remain slightly below average considering what is possible with this Wi-Fi chip (Intel AX211; Wi-Fi 6E). Wired network connection is made possible through a Gigabit Ethernet chip (RTL8125; 2.5 Gbit) by Realtek.

Webcam

The device's webcam (2.1 MP, max. 1,920 x 1,080 pixels) doesn't have a cover, however, its quality is pretty standard. It struggles a little with color accuracy: Its color deviation of 11 means this falls within an unacceptable range (desirable: DeltaE less than 3).

Input devices - a gaming laptop with individually-lit keys

Keyboard

The Chiclet keyboard's smooth keys have a medium-level lift and a clear pressure point. Each key is lit individually (three brightness levels). Negative: The keys' secondary functions don't catch any of the light, which means they are barely legible. While you are typing, the keys only have a tiny amount of give - but this shouldn't be too annoying. All-in-all, Gigabyte have provided this device with a good everyday keyboard.

Touchpad

A multi-touch click pad (roughly 12.1 x 7.6 cm) replaces a mouse on this computer - its smooth surface makes for easy use. The corners react to inputs, have a slight give and have a clear pressure point.

* ... smaller is better

Straight out of the box, the display already shows great color reproduction: With a deviation of 1.54, it falls within an acceptable range (DeltaE < 3). Calibration brings the number down to 1.21 and helps more evenly display gray tones.

The display can depict nearly the entire sRGB color space - but not the AdobeRGB and DCI-P3 color spaces. This means most competitors do a bit of a better job with this.

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
9.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.9 ms rise
↘ 4.5 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 21 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
12.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise

The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 21 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.5 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17673 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The viewing angle stable IPS panel can be viewed from every position. Outside, the display is mostly visible, as long as the sun isn't shining too brightly.

Testing conditions

The computer's control center (Gigabyte Control Center) has all the usual performance modes (see table) and a superior AI boost function, which we used. This meant that the control center chose the best-fitting profile - "gaming mode" and "creator mode" for the benchmarks and "energy-saving idle mode" for the battery tests.

"Turbo mode" can in certain cases provide slightly improved performance - but this comes at a price: The fans are constantly working at full power. You can achieve the quietest working levels - close to completely silent - using "meeting mode". Here, the single-thread performance, which is more important for everyday use, shrinks to a lesser extent than the multi-thread performance. Even gaming would be possible at reduced settings.

Processor

Its Core-i7-13700HX processor (Raptor Lake) consists of 8 efficiency cores (no hyper threading, 1.5 to 3.7 GHz) and 8 performance cores (hyper threading, 2.1 to 5 GHz). In total, this adds up to 24 logistical CPU cores. The benchmarks provide results on par with the CPU's determined average.

The CPU tests of the Cinebench R15 benchmark were run with high (multi-thread) or high to maximum (single-thread) clock rates while connected to the mains. Using the battery, these rates dropped - significantly more under single-thread load than multi-thread load.

The CB15 loop test showed: The CPU turbo was utilized and continuous multi-thread load caused the clock rates to drop slightly from the first to the third run.

DPC latency

The standardized latency monitor test (web surfing, 4k video playback, Prime95 high-load) revealed a few abnormalities. This system doesn't seem to be suitable for real-time video and audio editing. Future software updates could bring some improvements - but they could possibly also worsen this issue.

Storage devices

The 15X has space for two PCIe-4 SSDs in M.2-2280 format - however, only one is included with the laptop. The installed PCIe-4 model (1 TB) from Gigabyte delivers very good transfer rates. However: In the later course of the DiskSpd loop, occasional performance drops could be observed - probably due to thermal throttling.

A PCIe-4 SSD serves as the system drive.
