Reviews for the Aorus 17G YC

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.

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.

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.


i7-10870H: Coffee Lake based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates eight processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 5 GHz (all 8 cores up to 4.2 GHz) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured on the third-gen 14 nm Intel process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.30":

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.


2.7 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. 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).


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
