Aorus 16X (2024) review: Core i9 and RTX 4070 for US$2,000

Powerhouse. A Core i9-14900HX and a GeForce RTX 4070 equip the Aorus 16X (2024) for video editing, gaming and rendering. Adding to this is a bright 16-inch display (16:10, 2,560 x 1,600 pixels, G-Sync), 32 GB RAM, two SSDs with 1 TB of storage each, as well as a Thunderbolt 4 port.

Gaming, rendering and content creation are advertized as being the main strengths of the Aorus 16X ASG. Raptor Lake and Ada Lovelace deliver the required performance. Its competitors include devices like the Alienware m16 R2, HP Omen Transcend 16, XMG Pro 16 Studio (Mid 23), Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA707XI and the Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16IRX9.

Case - LED strips add a touch of fun

The laptop's tech sits within a dark-gray case with matte surfaces. In total, Gigabyte has gone for more of a stripped-back look. In addition to the keyboard's backlighting, two LED strips on the back of the device add a bit of colorful fun to its appearance. While the base unit is made from plastic, the lid relies on aluminum. The battery (screwed in, not glued in) as well as the rest of the laptop's innards can be accessed once the bottom part of the case is removed. 

We didn't note any build errors and all the gaps line up well. The lid and base unit can be twisted ever so slightly—but this is nothing out of the ordinary. The hinges hold the lid securely in place, but the lid does bounce a little when you adjust its angle. Its maximum opening angle is about 130 degrees. It can be opened with one hand.

Connectivity - The Gigabyte laptop features Thunderbolt 4

The 16X has two USB-A ports (USB 3.2 Gen 2) and two USB-C ports (1x USB 3.2 Gen 2, 1x Thunderbolt 4). The TB4 port supports Power Delivery and both USB-C connections can output a DisplayPort signal. In total, the laptop is fitted with three video outputs (1x HDMI, 2x DP). An audio jack and a Gigabit Ethernet port round out the package.

Gigabyte has placed all connections along the middle of the right and left sides of the device. The areas next to the pam rest generally remain free from cables.

Communication

Under optimum conditions (no WLAN devices in close vicinity, short distance between laptop and server PC), we noted very good WiFi data rates. The 16X's poor values when sending data are likely due to driver issues. The Gigabyte laptop uses a WiFi 7 chip (Intel BE200). Wired connections are taken care of by a controller (RTL8168/8111; 1 GBit/s) made by Realtek.

Webcam

The webcam (2.1 MP, max. 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, IR) only delivers average-quality picture. Its color accuracy is where it fails: With a deviation of around 10, the target value (DeltaE lower than 3) has been missed. It does, however, support Windows Hello. In turn, it doesn't feature a mechanical cover.

Warranty

Input devices - The Aorus laptop has a backlit keyboard

Keyboard

The keys on the chiclet keyboard (three-stage RGB illumination) feature a medium lift and a clear pressure point. Their resistance is okay. The keyboard yields slightly when typing, but this has not yet proven to be annoying. Good: The four arrow keys are full-sized. Gigabyte has decided against installing a numeric keypad. All in all, the manufacturer has delivered a keyboard suitable for everyday use.

Touchpad

A multi-touch clickpad (approx. 13.3 x 9 cm) serves as a mouse replacement, whose smooth surface makes it easy for fingers to glide. It features a short lift and a clear pressure point.

Gigabyte has installed a 165-Hz panel including G-Sync support. The latter dynamically adjusts the refresh rates of the display and GPU to create the smoothest possible picture—especially when gaming.

We noted no signs of PWM flickering at any brightness setting. The 16:10 matte 16-inch panel's (2,560 x 1,600 pixels) brightness and contrast meet their respective targets (> 300 cd/m² or 1,000:1). Its high brightness is particularly noteworthy.

* ... smaller is better

The screen already showed good color depiction straight out of the box: With a deviation of around 2.7, the target (DeltaE < 3) has been met. Calibration reduces the deviation to 1.3 and ensures more balanced shades of gray. The panel can completely reproduce the sRGB color space, but not the AdobeRGB and DCI P3 color spaces. This is no different for the displays of most competitors.

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
5.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.5 ms rise
↘ 3.9 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 13 % 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
7.5 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.3 ms rise
↘ 4.2 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.6 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 17761 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The viewing-angle stable IPS panel remains legible from every angle. Outside, you can read from the panel as long as the sun isn't shining too brightly.

Testing conditions

The 16X offers six manufacturer-specific performance modes (see table), which can be switched between via the Gigabyte Control Center (the laptop's control center). We used the modes Standard (benchmarks) and Energy-Saving Quiet (battery tests). Turbo, Gaming and Creator can only be used with the laptop connected to the mains.

Note: The available performance settings are not very clearly communicated within the Gigabyte Control Center. The system-wide performance profiles can be found in the "AI Boost" section. The "AI Power Gear" section only refers to the operating status of the dGPU (dGPU only or off, graphics switching).

Processor

The Core i9-14900HX's (Raptor Lake) 24 CPU cores (8P + 16E = 32 threads) achieve maximum clock rates of 5.8 GHz (P) and 4.1 GHz (E). Continuous multi-thread load (CB15 Loop) resulted in its clock rate dropping from the fourth to the fifth run. Afterwards, it kept quite a stable level. The profiles Turbo, Gaming and Creator lead to a consistently higher performance level.

Its benchmark scores are on par with the CPU's average. In battery mode, its more relevant single-thread performance (187 points; CB15) dropped to a lesser extent than its multi-thread performance (1,533 points; CB15).

More information on the Core i9 can be found in our analysis article.

Storage devices

The 16X features two PCIe 4 SSDs with 1 TB of storage each (M.2-2280)—they do not form a RAID array. One SSD serves as a system drive, the other as data storage—both achieve very good data rates. We noted no drops due to thermal throttling.

The 16X generally supports RAID. However, the corresponding option would first have to be activated in the BIOS, after which Windows would have to be reinstalled. This procedure is not recommended for the inexperienced.

The two SSDs do not form a RAID array.
