Reviews for the Aorus X5 v7
4K vs. battery. Aorus has made several improvements since last year's model of the X5: 4K display, Thunderbolt 3 and a Kaby Lake CPU are only a few of the positive additions. Can the X5 v7 improve on its predecessor's rating (83%) or might it even reach pole position among slim gamers? We will try to find out in our review.

Overall, the Gigabyte AORUS X5 V7-KL3K3D is the right size and weight, and its performance is absurdly good. If you don't mind warm fingers when gaming and a short battery life, it's a damn good way to get your game on without being tied down - if you can find a power outlet.

All in, the AORUS X5 V7 is fantastic, offering acceptable to good frame rates, huge CPU power on demand, plenty of fast DDR4 RAM for multitasking and that 4K screen to make everything possible.

To get the Aorus X5 v7’s GTX 1070 gaming experience, you’ll need to pay a hefty premium. GTX 1070 laptops tend to start around the $1,499 to $1,699 mark, but the entry-level X5 v7 costs a whopping $2,399. Of course, you’re getting much better hardware in every regard, though some will certainly find that $900 margin very hard to swallow. We’re not quite hitting GTX 1080 laptop pricing, but this laptop does come pretty close.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (Laptop): 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.
7820HK: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 2.9 - 3.9 GHz. It is the second fastest model of the consumer H-series in the beginning of 2017. The chip also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU clocked at 350 - 1100 MHz and is manufactured in a 14 nm process (improved compared to Skylake). Compared to the Core i7-7820HQ, the 7820HK lacks business features like vPro or TXT support.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
