100% Gigabyte Aorus 17X review
Source: Techradar English
The Gigabyte Aorus 17X is an absolute beast. When it isn't pumping out 60fps of ray-traced FHD graphics on its gorgeous display, it multitasks resource-intensive projects like a professional desktop. One of the most powerful gaming laptops we've tested, it's price-to-power ratio makes it an objectively great value - but only if you can stomach the initial price tag.

82% Gigabyte Aorus 17X review: A power gaming laptop with a keyboard that just clicks
Source: CNet English
Gigabyte's impressive Aorus 17 line of gaming laptops distinguishes itself from a lot of competitors with the excellent mechanical keyboard it added to the year's models. That, plus its better-than-average performance and big, 17-inch 240Hz display make it a solid choice as a desktop replacement for the work-from-home, speed-minded gamer. But if you plan to shell out the big bucks -- over $3,000 -- for the higher-end configurations, you might find some of its limitations annoying given the expense.

90% Gigabyte Aorus 17X review – Heavyweight desktop notebook
Source: Htxt Africa English
The Aorus 17X is expensive and heavy but when it comes down to performance there is no denying this thing is a behemoth. Throw games, work and more at this thing and it will handle it with ease. Make sure you have a comfy set of headphones though as the noise of the cooling solution will drive you mad. Overall the Aorus 17X is a fantastic desktop replacement if you're the type that once went to LANs and hopes to go again in the future. Great showing from Gigabyte here.

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).


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 2080 Super Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 3,072 shaders. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2080 Super to achieve a much lower power consumption. The TGP is specified between 80 and 90 Watts with different clock speeds.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Mobile: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip. At the time of the launch in early 2020, the 2080 Super is the fastest laptop graphics card on the market, but only slightly faster than the old GeForce RTX 2080.
