Aorus 17 Alder Lake Gaming Laptop Review
Source: Tech PowerUP English
The Aorus 17 is an interesting laptop, built thin and light, but with a full list of specifications that are truly top-level. There are several available configurations on the way, including one with an i9-12900HK and 3080 Ti for the US market. Pricing is unknown as of yet. That lack of information poses a problem when it comes time to evaluate this product. That's not that high of a frequency, but the performance is more than adequate in games for sure. The raw compute power of these cores at low speed shouldn't be overlooked. Of note is also that the 45 W limitation means those cores are running cool at full CPU load, which has the laptop itself run quiet; perfect for getting some rendering or photo editing done without it being distracting. I have to take a moment to talk about the Microsoft Azure AI functionality, or lack thereof. Theoretically, we should see performance boosts in the right ways for different applications, as the system should be intelligent enough to adjust things like power limits or processor speed to match the demands of the task at hand.

Aorus 17 XE
Source: PC Mag English
The Aorus 17 XE is a straightforward offering in just about every facet—what you see is what you get. The build is big and simple, but it's visually sleek and not excessively heavy. The performance is great, as you'd expect from the component array; there are no real surprises or overachieving moments, though the 12th Gen processor is given room to fly with the fans at full speed. It's hardly the flashiest way to spend over $2,000 on a laptop, nor is it travel-friendly, but the Aorus largely delivers on its promises. The Lenovo Legion 7 and Alienware x17 just edge past it on the basis of performance and design in this competitive field.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Aorus:

This company was founded as a subsidiary of Gigabyte in Tawain in 2014. The logo is a falcon head, since the name Aorus is derived from the ancient Egyptian falcon god Horus. According to employees, the first letter of HORUS was changed to "A" to represent the brand as "A team". Aorus primarily produces gaming laptops as well as computer accessories.

Since the market shares are still low, there are also few reviews. However, the products achieve relatively good ratings (as of 2016).


85.73%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
