87.4% Aorus 16X (2024) review: Core i9 and RTX 4070 for US$2,000 | Notebookcheck
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.

My only other real complaint is the noise level, as the laptop does get loud, especially if using the AI Gaming profile – and don't get me started on the Turbo mode! In speaking with my colleague Leo Waldock, he suggested the Windforce Infinity cooling setup looks relatively basic considering the 14900HX CPU used, so high fan speeds may be used to overcome that, resulting in high levels of noise – but the same can also be said for many other portable machines. Overall, the Gigabyte Aorus 16X is a solid laptop that delivers a good user experience. Depending on the type of games you play, you may want to consider looking at an RTX 4080 laptop instead, but for many I have no doubt that this machine will have strong appeal. We don't yet have a buy link for this model, but Gigabyte tells us it will be in stock at Curry's in a couple of weeks, priced at £1899.99.

16.00":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
