86.5% Aorus 17G XB Laptop Review: The mechanical keyboard rocks | Notebookcheck

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.

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).

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

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


i7-10875H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates eight processor cores clocked at 2.3 - 5,1 GHz (all 8 cores up to 4.3 GHz) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.73 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


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. 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).


86.38%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
