Gigabyte's beefy 17-inch gaming laptop is heavily discounted and can basically be bought for the current price of a desktop Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, which turns this deal into a decent upgrade opportunity for high-end gamers.

Since desktop graphics cards in particular remain scarce and are often only available at incredibly inflated prices, many gamers who are in dire need of a hardware upgrade may consider buying a new laptop instead, mainly because it's the only feasible way to play the latest games at high settings. Fortunately, prospective gaming notebook buyers can now benefit from an intriguing deal for a high-end machine made by Gigabyte.

Newegg currently offers the Gigabyte AORUS 17G YD with an 11th Gen Intel Core i7-11800H, 32GB of DDR4 memory and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 GPU with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM for a discounted price of just US$1,999. In combination with the US$300 mail-in rebate, the price for this high-end gaming laptop comes down to just US$1,699. The Gigabyte AORUS 17G YD is further equipped with a fast 300 Hz 17-inch IPS display with FHD resolution, a 512GB PCIe 4.0 SSD as well as a large 99 Wh battery.

Due to the size and weight of this notebook, this is not an ultra-portable gaming laptop but it can in fact serve as a decent gaming desktop replacement. We reviewed this exact configuration of the Gigabyte AORUS 17G YD a few months ago and particularly liked the 300 Hz display panel and it's good color reproduction as well as the high-quality case and the solid battery life. High-end gamers who are currently looking for a new machine should certainly consider taking advantage of this great RTX 3080 gaming laptop deal.
