This new gaming machine is the world's first 15.6-inch laptop that features a 4K IGZO display and NVIDIA GTX 965M SLI graphics.

Aorus is a company that has been on the market for only one year, but have just announced a "world's first" product - the X5 gaming laptop. According to the official press release, Aorus X5 is the first 15-inch gaming laptop that packs a 4K IGZO display and NVIDIA GTX 965M SLI graphics.

While the full list of specs is not available yet, we know that Aorus X5 weighs less than 5.5 pounds and can score no less than P12000 in 3DMark 11, roughly 15 percent more than a single GTX 980M. The company managed to put the NVIDIA GTX 965M SLI inside a frame that is only 0.9 inches thick. The powerful graphics adapter of the Aorus X5 feeds a 4K IGZO display, making this machine "the only 15.6” laptop capable of squeezing out the essence of 4K display for brilliant vision and fantastic experiences."

The Aorus X5 gaming laptop will hit the market in Q2 2105, with MSRP starting around $2300 USD. Next to it, Aorus also unveiled the updated X7 Pro, now with dual GTX 970M graphics, as well as X3 Plus, the world's lightest gaming laptop that packs NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M graphics. Please feel free to check the press release below for more details.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
