Aorus 17X AZF review: High-end gaming laptop with i9-13900HX and RTX 4090 in a slim case

Extreme powerhouse! The latest Gigabyte Aorus 17X is packed with the best the laptop market currently has to offer. Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4090 and Intel's Core i9-13900HX belong to the absolute high-end range and Gigabyte packs these two powerhouses into a very slim laptop. Find out whether this combination works in our detailed review with its numerous measurements and benchmarks.

The new Aorus 17X AZF is built upon an Intel Raptor Lake H processor and the latest mobile GPU flagship from Nvidia. An Intel Core i9 13900HX works together with a Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 laptop GPU under the hood. These two components alone give an idea of the laptop's intended purpose. But how well does the hardware perform in the slim case? We took at look at this and will go into more detail later. But the CPU and GPU alone do not make a good gaming laptop - these are accompanied by a 240 Hz, 17-inch screen in the Aorus 17X AZF, as well as a total of 2 TB SSD storage that can easily store a large number of games and other programs. Such a configuration amounts to US$3,499.00.

Alternatively, the Aorus 17X is available with an Intel Core Intel Core i7 13700HX. While there are no other choices in terms of the graphics card, the speed of the DDR5 RAM can vary. The Core i7 is technically limited to a maximum of 4800 MT/s, while the Core i9 model has a maximum of 5600 MT/s at its disposal.

Case - Aluminum and plastic on the Aorus 17X

The Aorus 17X is made of mostly aluminum and plastic. This has the advantage of low weight, because at less than 3 kilograms, the device is one of the lighter representatives here in comparison. Only the HP Omen 17 is slightly lighter.

In terms of stability, the choice of materials proves to be somewhat disadvantageous, but still proved to be solid in our pressure test. Manufacturers always have to manage a balancing act between stability and mobility in large 17-inch laptops, which we think has been successful in the Aorus 17X AZF. The display lid, made of aluminum on the upper side, is relatively stable, although it can still be twisted with a little effort. The hinges are also stable, which feel solid and reduce teetering to a minimum. Moreover, one-handed opening of the display is possible.

The only color elements are on the back in the form of illuminated Aorus lettering. There is also a silver Aorus logo on the display lid, which breaks ups the monotony of the otherwise completely black device.

Equipment

The Aorus 17X AZF unfortunately does not offer such a large selection of ports, but the available interfaces should nevertheless satisfy most users. After all, there is a modern Thunderbolt 4 port with Power Delivery (PD) and three conventional USB ports. Meanwhile, external displays can be connected via HDMI or DisplayPort. The location of the interfaces is decent, although the manufacturer did not have many options due to the expansive heat pipe construction inside.

Webcam

The webcam of the Aorus 17X AZF is FHD capable, making it suitable for simple video telephony. A few points were deducted due to the lack of color fidelity. The dual-array microphone, on the other hand, does a good job, as recordings from different directions are played back at a similar volume.

Maintenance

Maintenance work is fundamentally possible on the Aorus 17X AZF. However, the baseplate, which is attached with numerous screws, has to be removed for this. Everything important lies underneath the baseplate, such as the four fans, mass storage and RAM. In our case, the laptop is fully equipped and there are no free slots for RAM or SSD.

Warranty

In Germany, the Aorus 17X AZF comes with a 24-month warranty with pickup and return service included. This, of course, is likely to differ from country to country, so buyers should double-check before purchase.

Software

The Gigabyte Control Center (GCC) is used for controlling and monitoring the components of the Aorus 17X AZF. In our tests, no problems were encountered with GCC, which can be used to regulate laptop performance and thus influence background noise. The fan curve can be adjusted a little via the FAN Control tab. Moreover, a large number of backlight effects for the keyboard can be selected.

The mouse replacement in the form of a multi-touch ClickPad (approx. 12.1 x 7.6 cm) offers a pleasant size. Aorus has also superimposed its own logo on the toucpad, which is visually pleasing to look at. The ClickPad offers a smooth surface, which allows for smooth finger gliding. The input surface can be used in its entirety and also reacts well in the corners. The pad offers a short stroke for inputs and provides clear feedback thanks to its clear pressure point.

The Aorus 17X AZF comes with a good QHD panel, which should meet the needs of most gamers with a refresh rate of 240 Hz. However, the average brightness of our test unit is clearly weaker compared to the competition. An average of only 276 cd/m² is too low and is only enough for last place. The Aorus 17X AZF also loses important points in the display score with slight halos. No PWM was detected.

Alternative display options, such as a 4K panel, are not intended for the Aorus 17X AZF.

Subjectively, the display quality of the screen is impeccable and there is no visible grain despite the matte surface. In summary, the measured DeltaE-2000 values are relatively close to the target value of 3 in the state of delivery. However, other laptops in the class show that this can be done better. We were able to improve the values considerably via manual calibration. In addition, we were also able to reduce the blue cast a little. Hence, we recommend using the ICC profile linked above if you want to use the device for image editing.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
10.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.3 ms rise
↘ 4.8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
14 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.9 ms rise

The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 22 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17788 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The comparatively low display brightness is not conducive to outdoor use. Nevertheless, outdoor work is possible at full brightness, albeit with some limitations. Direct sunlight should be avoided.

Testing Conditions

In addition to the typical performance modes (see table), the control center of the Aorus 17X AZF (Gigabyte Control Center) provides a higher-level AI Boost function that we used. The Control Center then selected the appropriate profile - Gaming mode and Creator mode for the benchmarks, Energy-saving sleep mode for the battery tests.

Turbo mode fires up in individual cases for a small increase in performance, but this comes at a price: The fans constantly work at full power. In Meeting mode the device works very quietly, almost to the point of silence. Performance decreases noticeably as a result, although multi-thread performance is affected more than single-thread performance.

Processor

The Intel Core-i7-13900HX-Prozessor (Raptor Lake) consists of 16 efficient cores (no hyperthreading, 1.6 to 3.9 GHz) and 8 performance cores (hyperthreading, 2.2 to 5.4 GHz). There are 32 logical CPU cores in total, which was accompanied by enormous multi-thread performance in our tests. In the benchmarks, all contenders are in a tight head-to-head race. However, in the CPU performance rating, which represents the mean value from the benchmarks presented, our test unit came in second last place. Only the HP Omen 17, using the same SoC, can be bested here, while the Medion Erazer Beast delivers somewhat better performance. The other competitors fare better due to their slightly faster SoCs. Nevertheless, the gap to the MSI GE78HX is manageable at only 12 percent.

The CB15 loop test shows that CPU boost is utilized only at the beginning. The simulated permanent multi-thread load causes the clock to drop slightly after the first run, although performance remains stable from the third run.

The Aorus 17X AZF uses an in-house SSD. To be more precise, our test unit offers two NVMe SSDs, each with 1 TB of storage space, which is suitable for its intended purpose. Lots of data can thus be stored on the two mass storage devices. The two drives support PCIe 4.0 and are also connected over the full bandwidth with four lanes. Performance is solid, even if several comparison devices display better performance in some cases. However, the Aorus 17X AZF is already fully equipped with two SSDs. Alternatively, 2 TB models can of course also be installed in the device. Meanwhile, the underside of the case is utilized for effective cooling, so the device passed our stress test with flying colors.
