84% GIGABYTE AORUS 17G review: Sleek in looks, beefy in specs
Source: Techaeris English
There is definitely plenty of choices out there when it comes to gaming laptops. If you’re after a relatively thin 17-inch gaming laptop with decent specs and great performance, the GIGABYTE AORUS 17G is worth considering. While it did receive an 8.4/10 overall, if you remove the camera and battery scores, this is definitely one decent gaming laptop.

85% Gigabyte Aorus 17G XB review (Core i7-10875H, RTX 2070 Super)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Aorus 17G is a solid hardware implementation that can achieve excellent performance, thermals, and noise levels once adequately tweaked. It also smartly focuses on the user experience, on features and ergonomics, and not on being ultra-light or ultra-compact, which is my preferred approach on a 17-inch performance notebook. However, the Ai implementation needs more work, and the design and especially the implemented mechanical keyboard will make or break this for most.

Gigabyte Aorus 17G Review: A real gaming laptop that's amazingly quiet
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Whether the Gigabyte Aorus 17G is the gaming laptop for you largely depends on how much performance you’re willing to sacrifice for peace and quiet. In games, it’ll hinge on just how much the game is GPU- or CPU-bound. We’ve seen performance hits from as little as 2 percent to as much as 25 percent compared to laptops of similar size and weight. For content creation apps, such as GPU-based rendering or compute, the differences between the 155-watt RTX 3080 and the 105-watt RTX 3080 shrink to 10 to 15 percent. That’s still a noticeable performance sacrifice, but we understand if you’ll take the hit because your ears can simply no longer take it. The Gigabyte Aorus 17G is still a very fast gaming laptop, and far from the noisiest, an awfully appealing combination.

80% Gigabyte Aorus 17G Review – with Intel Tiger Lake H!
Source: Kitguru English
The alternate view is that most connectors should go at the rear and while we disagree, we are open to the point that this is a matter of personal taste. The keyboard and touch pad both work well. The controls feel right, they are precise and responsive and while they certainly click they don’t do it especially loudly. The problem for Gigabyte is that I expect things to be this way, so I consider an unsatisfactory keyboard to be a negative while a good keyboard is just how things ought to be. It is a similar story with the display which is nice and bright, has a good colour range and a seemingly infinite viewing angle with no hint of ghosting or other nastiness. In an ideal world the display would be 1440p however those panels seem to be very thin on the ground so it makes sense for this gaming laptop to pack a 1080p display instead.

Comment

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).


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,560 shaders. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2070 Super to achieve a much lower power consumption. The TGP is specified at 80 Watts and therefore significantly lower than the RTX 2070 Super Mobile (115 Watt).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA104 chip. At the time of the launch in early 2021, the 3080 is the fastest laptop graphics card on the market.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA104 chip. Available in different versions with a TDP from 80 to 125 Watt.
