The Taiwanese manufacturer will be showing off its lineup of notebooks and motherboards with live events and streams.

As Gigabyte's dedicated gaming brand, Aorus has been carving itself a a sizable audience with its unique and aggressively designed series of notebooks. Its recognizable X series of super-thin gaming notebooks pack in more features than many thicker competitors and the manufacturer has always been quick to implement the latest hardware including Kaby Lake processors, 120 Hz/5 ms display options, and individually-lit RGB keys.

In an attempt to widen its gaming audience even further, the Taiwanese company will be setting up its own showfloor at Pax East 2017 this year in Boston. The gaming-centric event has attracted over 17,000 visitors per year with professional LAN tournaments, game announcements, and hands-on demos. Aorus is planning to showcase more of its X series of notebooks in addition to its new 200 series of gaming motherboards and even a GTX 1080 Xtreme Edition desktop GPU. The company will be bringing in professional streamers Zombiunicorn and LeX to broadcast live from the Aorus floor and to interact with guests on-site.

Both Aorus and Gigabyte have had a large presence at CES and Computex in recent years. While the notebook market is currently experiencing a downward trend, gaming notebooks have been on the rise.

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.
