Reviews for the Aorus 17H BXF

80% Gigabyte Aorus 17H Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Aorus 17H knows exactly why it’s been put on this earth: to play FullHD games as fast as possible while still being reasonably priced. It’s an ambition the Aorus 17H fulfils to a tee, so if you want a laptop for serious eSports, this is undoubtedly where you should spend your money. As for competition, you can get an Alienware m18 with a 470Hz refresh rate but go for the RTX 4080 model, and you will be spending £2,729 and have an even lower (125dpi) pixel density thanks to the 1,920 x 1,200 18-inch panel. The Strix Scar 17 from Asus ROG features a QHD display, an RTX 4090 GPU and AMD’s latest Dragon Range CPU and can play games at QHD as fast as the Aorus 17H can play them at FullHD, but it is considerably more expensive, and the display tops out at just 240Hz. The Aorus 17H would be more rounded packaged if the speakers were better and if it had Advanced Optimus, but the former is easily remedied with a headset, something most serious gamers will regard as de rigueur, while the latter only adds a little operational convenience and would presumably involve the extra cost of an Nvidia licence.

Aorus 17H i7-13700H & RTX 4080 Gaming Laptop Review

Overall though, it’s *lots of swearing* fast, seriously. For work, rendering, gaming, it doesn’t matter, this is a true weapon of performance that’s going to run rings around most high-end desktop systems. If you absolutely have to game at ultra-high refresh rates on the go (but within thinking distance of a plug socket), this is the ticket. I can’t see such an extreme being that appealing to everyone, but if you take your gaming seriously, or even professionally, there’s nothing else out there that comes close that you can still fit in your backpack and travel with.

85% Gigabyte Aorus 17H (2023) Laptop Review (i7-13700H / RTX 4080)
Source: Kitguru English
Battery life from the 99 Whr unit is superb, and there’s plenty of power delivery available from the 280W power brick and charging-capable Thunderbolt 4 port. Build quality is good, with ample sturdiness from the keyboard and trackpad. I’m not massively keen on the widespread use of plastic, but I guess that’s a trade-off for the price and weight and design targets. I’d have liked to see faster than 4800MHz RAM for a £2249 laptop in today’s market however. Plus, 32GB would be preferable, even if adding slightly to the cost. The screen is an intriguing one, too. Its colour quality is good, I like the slim bezel design, and that 360 Hz refresh rate makes for smooth gaming in lesser demanding titles. But I really can’t help but feel that 1080p is just a little too slim on the resolution side for a 17” display. The pixel density isn’t high enough to result in a crisp image, to my eyes. Overall, I like the Gigabyte Aorus 17H and what it offers at £2249 in the UK. The main hardware features – that Core i7 and RTX 4080 – deliver the goods. And the Aorus cooling solution that allows them to drink over 170W of sustained power is highly competent. This is a fast, large form factor gaming laptop that impresses.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.7 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
