Reviews for the Aorus X5 v6

83% Aorus X5 v6 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
No performance compromises. The unique Aorus X5 is back with Pascal, individually lit RGB keys, and 120 Hz/5 ms FHD display options all in a chassis just under 23 mm thick. Owners will get the same gaming performance as a desktop with GTX 1070 graphics, albeit in a much louder package.

The Aorus X5 doesn’t come cheap, but this is one of the slimmest gaming titans on the market here – and it packs a punch. Just don’t expect it to do its thing quietly.

Review: Aorus X5 v6
Source: Hexus English
When we reviewed the special edition Aorus X5S v5 Camo back in April, we came away with the feeling that the laptop's strengths were largely negated by the lack of next-gen GPUs. Fast forward a few months and Nvidia has stepped forward to fill the void with the GeForce GTX 10-series. Aorus has responded quickly and the refreshed X5 v6 races out of the gate with a Core i7-6820HK processor and GeForce GTX 1070 graphics allied to a high-resolution 3K WQHD+ display.

Review: Aorus X5 V6 GTX 1070 Laptop
Source: Unlocked Newegg English
The specs on the X5V6 are certainly impressive for a gaming laptop, but it’s not alone in that. What makes the X5V6 so desirable is the combination of the power of the components and the elegant and light case that houses them. The X5V6 is perfect for someone who wants a portable, light laptop that doesn’t scream “I’m a gamer!” while still being able to keep up with other high end gaming laptops.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Mobile: Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds.

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.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


6820HK: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.575 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. 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).


86%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
