After catering to gaming enthusiasts almost exclusively for years, the Aorus brand is now ready to dabble in more affordable mid-range offerings. The 17.3-inch Aorus 7 tops out at the GTX 1660 Ti and RTX 2060 while keeping many flagship features intact including the Core i7-9750H CPU, 144 Hz display, and triple internal storage bays.

After launching the Aorus 15 earlier this year, it was inevitable that Gigabyte would eventually offer a new 17.3-inch model. The manufacturer is expected to show off the Aorus 7 at Computex 2019 next week where we'll likely learn more about its design and conception.

The Aorus 7 differs from the last generation flagship Aorus X7 in that it targets more mid-range gamers looking for a premium experience without breaking the bank. As such, the new system will be slightly thicker than the X7 with GPU options ranging from the GTX 1050 to the GTX 1660 Ti and RTX 2060 depending on the configuration. Gamers who want even faster performance can opt for the Aorus 15 with the RTX 2070 GPU.

Other key features include a 144 Hz 1080p display as standard which we hope will become commonplace on more gaming laptops. Intel 9th gen Core i9-9750H CPU, 3x internal storage bays, and an Intel 760p PCIe SSD round up the package.

Find out more about the Aorus 7 through its official specifications and product page here. The 17.3-inch system will compete directly against other mid-range laptops including the Asus ROG GL704, Acer Predator Helios 500, Lenovo Legion Y740, Dell Gaming G series, and the MSI GL series.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
