Aorus 17 XE4 Review: Potent Gaming Notebook with 360 Hz Screen

Powerhouse. A Core i7 12700H CPU and a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti laptop GPU ensure that all current games can be played smoothly on a 17.3-inch screen (FHD, 360 Hz). The notebook offers room for two PCIe 4 SSDs and features a Thunderbolt 4 port.

The Aorus 17 XE4 belongs to the category of compact gaming notebooks in the 17.3-inch format. The machine is powered by a Core i7-12700H processor and a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti laptop GPU. Competitors include the Razer Blade 17, the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16 G7, and the MSI Vector GP66 12UGS.

Case - A plastic chassis for the Aorus 17

The case of the Aorus laptop is made of matte black plastic with smooth surfaces. An illuminated Aorus logo on the back of the lid sets the accent. The thin display frame complements the elegant appearance of the laptop. Connoisseurs of earlier Aorus 17 models will notice that the camera has moved to the area above the screen. The battery is inbuilt. The interior is accessible after removing the bottom cover.

The case is well manufactured. Gap dimensions are even, there are no material protrusions and/or sharp edges. The base unit and lid bend a little under torsion, but this is not a serious issue in everyday use. The hinges keep the lid firmly in place, but a one-handed opening is possible. The maximum opening angle is around 130 degrees.

The weight and measurements of the Aorus 17 are relatively small for a 17.3-inch notebook - this is also true for the Razer Blade 17. Of course, both do not match the dimensions of a 15.6-inch laptop.

Hardware - Gigabyte notebook offers Thunderbolt 4

The gaming laptop comes with two USB-A slots (USB 3.2 Gen 1) and one USB-C slot (Thunderbolt 4). The latter supports DisplayPort via USB-C. Therefore, together with the HDMI connection and the dedicated mini DisplayPort, there are three video outputs. The Aorus 17 does not have an onboard memory card reader.

Communication

The WLAN module contains a chip (AX211) from Intel that supports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax standards. The transmission speeds determined under optimal conditions (no other WLAN devices in the immediate vicinity, small distance between notebook and server PC) were excellent. Network connectivity is handled by Realtek's RTL8125 Gigabit Ethernet controller, which does its job flawlessly.

Webcam

The webcam (0.9 MP) creates images with a maximum resolution of 1,280x720 pixels. There is a problem with the color accuracy: the tones deviate significantly from the target. The camera does not have a mechanical cover, but it can be permanently deactivated in the computer's BIOS.

Accessories

Besides the usual documents (quick start guide and warranty information), no other accessories are included with the notebook.

Maintenance

After removing all screws on the underside of the device, the bottom cover can be removed using a flat spatula or a putty knife. Afterward, you have access to the SSD, the second M.2 slot (PCIe 4, M.2-2280), the WLAN module, the RAM, the BIOS battery, and the fans.

Warranty

Gigabyte gives a two-year warranty for the 17.3-inch laptop. Warranty extensions are not available.

Input Devices - The keyboard offers RGB lighting

Keyboard

The notebook features an illuminated chiclet keyboard with a number pad. The smooth keys have a medium key travel and a clear pressure point. The keyboard yields minimally during typing, which did not prove to be bothersome. The two-stage key illumination is controlled via a key combination. Overall, Gigabyte delivers a keyboard suitable for everyday use.

Touchpad

A multi-touch capable clickpad (~12.2 x 7.6 cm) serves as a mouse replacement. Its smooth surface makes gliding easy for the fingers. It also responds to inputs in the corners. The pad offers a short stroke and a clear pressure point.

While the contrast (1096:1) of the matte 17.3-inch screen (1,920x1,080 pixels) meets the target value (> 1000:1), the brightness (266.8 cd/m²) is too low. We consider values above 300 cd/m² to be good. The 360 Hz panel offers short response times. PWM flickering could not be detected.

Directly out of the box, the display achieves good color representation: color deviations are within the target range. Calibration provides further improvement. The display cannot reproduce the AdobeRGB (71%) and DCI-P3 (69%) color spaces, but the sRGB color space is reproduced at 99%.

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
11.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.8 ms rise
↘ 4.4 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 240 (maximum) ms. » 19 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
15.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7.6 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 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 17 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.8 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21792 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Test Conditions

The pre-installed Gigabyte Control Center provides various performance profiles that allow for control over CPU and GPU performance, fan activity, screen brightness, and color temperature, among other things. We use the higher-level AI mode here. The Control Center then selects the appropriate profile automatically.

Some benchmarks were carried out with the profiles "Power Saving Silence Mode" and "Turbo Mode" continuously active. The latter is not recommended for long-term use since the fans continuously operate at full speed. 

Creator Mode Turbo Mode Gaming Mode Meeting Mode Power Saving Silence Mode
Power Limit 1 70 Watt 70 Watt 55 Watt 15 Watt 15 Watt
Power Limit 2 115 Watt 115 Watt 115 Watt 30 Watt 30 Watt

Processor

The Core i7-12700H processor (Alder Lake) consists of six performance cores (Hyperthreading, 2.4 to 4.7 GHz) and eight efficiency cores (no Hyperthreading, 1.8 to 3.5 GHz). In total, this amounts to 20 logical CPU cores.

The multi-thread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark is operated briefly at high clock rates (P-cores: 3.7 to 4.1 GHz, E-cores: 3 to 3.1 GHz), before dropping (P-Cores: 3.1 GHz, E-Cores: 2.6 GHz). The single thread test runs continuously at high speeds (P-cores: 4.1 to 4.7 GHz, E-cores: 3.5 GHz).

Multi-thread (mains operation)
Multi-thread (mains operation)
Single-thread (mains operation)
Single-thread (mains operation)

We checked whether the CPU Turbo is used continuously under power supply operation by running the multi-thread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark in a loop. High clock rates can only be maintained for short periods. Afterward, both the P- and E-cores operate at speeds in the mid turbo range. Selectively activating the performance profile "Turbo Mode" does not yield any advantages.

System Performance

The system runs smoothly. The installed hardware provides more than enough computing power for performance-demanding applications such as gaming and image editing. In addition, the PCMark results are good. The RAM transfer rates are at a normal level for DDR4-3200 memory. Competitors like the Razer Blade 17 and the Legion 5 Pro 16 G7 deliver better rates because they are equipped with faster DDR5-4800 memory.

The RAM runs in dual-channel mode.
