82.3% Gigabyte A5 K1 review: Old-school gaming notebook | Notebookcheck
The Gigabyte A5 K1 presents itself as a classic gaming laptop that does not put emphasis on a thin and particularly light case. The focus is rather on a good price-performance ratio, because you get a six-core CPU from AMD and a GeForce RTX 3060 with high TGP for under 1,000 Euros (~$993).

Gigabyte: GIGABYTE Technology is a Taiwan-based manufacturer of computer hardware products best known for its motherboards. Established in 1986, its major customers include custom boutique PC manufacturers such as Alienware. Secondary lines in the company's product portfolio include complete PCs, laptops, optical drives, LCD monitors, keyboards, mice, cooling components, mobile phones and high end mobile phone products (PDA phone, TV phone etc.), networking equipment, power supplies, and a line of barebone mid and full sized ATX computer cases. Gigabyte laptop reviews are rare and the global laptop market share low.

In the notebook sector, Gigabyte is a medium player and does not belong to the Top 10 manufacturers globally. There are many reviews on Gigabyte laptops with average ratings, but there are only few reviews on Gigabyte tablets. Gigabyte does not play a role in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).
