Gigabyte Aero 14 Series

Gigabyte Aero 14 v8

With the Aero 14 series, Gigabyte aimed to create gaming and multimedia laptops, which are as powerful as a gaming desktop, Gigabyte manufactured the Aero 14 series. The Gigabyte Aero 14 series consists of premium laptops with exceptional features, yet in a less-than-2-kg-weight package, so it could make user feel more comfortable and convenient when traveling anywhere. The powerful yet light 14-inch laptops are slightly cheaper than the MSI GS43 and the high-end Razer Blade. This series is equipped with powerful processors, supreme graphics cards and an SSD, for instance, the Intel 7th generation Kaby Lake i7-770HQ processor or the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 discrete GPU. Actually, in my viewpoint, the Gigabyte Aero 14 is easily able to take advantages when vying with other competitive models or series in the same market segment currently.

Design

According to page TechRadar, Gigabyte laptops have always looked so minimalistic to a fault that the Aero 14 is straight up stylish. “I personally quite like the matte black design - although the orange and carbon-fibre trim looks like a bit of an afterthought”, said the reviewer from page TrustedReview. Also, for the page UnlockedNewEgg, they thought that a unique and powerful laptop like the Gigabyte Aero 14 shouldn’t have to apologize for the strange design choices. A comment from page ComputerShopper about the outfit of this notebook is that the orange and green versions may not fit with corporate office decor, but the black Aero 14 is handsome enough to blend in at work as well as play. Besides, “The Aero 14 measures a hair under 20 mm thick and tips the scales at 1.9 kg. It isn’t the thinnest nor lightest laptop of its size, but considering the firepower within, the dimensions are perfectly acceptable and the system easily slips inside a backpack” (from page Hexus). Nevertheless, as another remark from page TrustedReview, there are not any major concerns with the design and build of the Aero 14, although past experience has found that Gigabyte laptops built in this way tend to start looking a little worn after less than a year of use. In the viewpoint of Hexus’s reviewer, more importantly, build quality is similarly satisfying. Gigabyte has enough aluminum reinforcement to ensure that there’s only a minor amount of flex to the keyboard tray and the system feels sturdier than the plastic chassis many gamers are accustomed to.

Keyboard and Trackpad

Speaking about the keyboard, page UnlockedNewEgg evaluated that it’s a pretty nice compromise between traditional keyboards and mechanical. It features some feel-good clicking, though some didn’t quite like how it felt But as remarked from Hexus, the Aero’s 14 keyboard is well -sized with good key travel and a consistent white backlight, but the layout can take a little getting used to. In addition, following a comment of TechRadar, the keyboard features a new and larger island style with significantly bigger keys and more spacing between each key. The key switches feel bouncy and offer firm resistance while typing. “The keyboard has an extremely firm action; you’ll need to put more force into each key press than is usual. I really like this, although it takes some getting used to”, said TrustedReview. Meanwhile, “The trackpad isn’t anything exciting, but it works better than some truly vestigial pads on gaming laptops. It gets the job done, but isn’t as large or responsive as others out there” (UnlockedNewEgg’s evaluation). Moreover, the touchpad, as a remark of TrustedReview, is an integrated affair with no separate physical buttons. It’s fine, but it is not Microsoft Precision-certified, so we don’t get that immediate, perfectly weighed feel that you get on other laptops. And for TechRadar, “Just below that, you’ll find a generously sized and silky smooth trackpad. Unfortunately, the Elan software driving this pointing device left us with fewer multi-touch gestures than we’ve become accustomed to with a Microsoft Precision Touchpad”. Regarding a quote from Hexus, a well-sized trackpad make us feel nice to the touch but can be a tad erratic during use.

Display

The screen on the Aero 14 offers a fine balance of resolution and quality, with a high-resolution 2560x1440 panel that looks excellent under scrutiny like TrustedReview’s comment. Similarly, Hexus also said, Gigabyte employs an IPS panel from LG offering excellent viewing angles, a matte finish and a QHD resolution that’s ideal for a 14-inch screen. And the reviewer of ComputerShopper said: “We have nothing bad to say about the Gigabyte’s screen. Colors, contrast and viewing angles are all impressive”. As TechRadar’s comment, the Aero 14’s screen is top notch. The display panel is so brilliant that 50% screen brightness is enough to overpower sunlight streaming into our office.

Audio

Unfortunately, following a quote of TechRadar, the Gigabyte Aero 14-inch notebook’s speakers don’t leave as nearly as big an impression. They’re serviceable enough for playing music and game audio when we don’t feel like putting on a headset. Speaking of sound, the speakers are in the middle of the pack. “For a laptop with a fat battery and fat performance, getting phat beats like it’s the 90’s is challenging. I wouldn’t give it any awards, but it got the job done and, in laptops, that’s good enough” (page UnlockedNewEgg). However, for TrustedReview, surprisingly, the speakers are perfectly fine. While the reviewer of this page wouldn’t want to play sound-critical games through them, there’s stereo separation and a reasonably well-balanced sound and they can get up to a pretty high volumes too.

Performance

Most new laptops in the Gigabyte Aero 14 series are powered by the latest Intel’s Core i7-7700HQ from Kaby Lake: a quad-core, eight-thread CPU with 2.8 GHz (3.8 GHz turbo) clock speed. And the others older are equipped with the quad-core Intel Core i7-6700HQ from the Skylake generation. This helps in tasks such as video rendering and photo processing, as does the generous 16 GB of 2133 MHz RAM. This performance shone through in the Geekbench 4 benchmark, in which the Aero 14 scored 4229 and 12903 in single-core and multi-core tests, respectively according to TrustedReview. Also from this page, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card on board of the Aero is close to identical to its desktop sibling, and performs similarly as well. Loaded with 6 GB of GDDR5 memory, this chip is capable of powering the latest games at Full HD resolution and high settings without breaking too much of a sweat. As a result from page Hexus: “Getting in excess of 60 frames per second is achievable in most modern titles if you knock the resolution down to full-HD. It isn’t quite so easy at native QHD, you may find you’ll need to drop quality settings in order to get silky-smooth action at the highest available resolution”. For the TechRadar, they reviewed by playing The Division and they could get 52 fps for 1080p Ultra and 112 fps for Low 1080p, GTA V 1080p Ultra reached 39 fps and 115 fps for Low 1080p, respectively. And the UnlockedNewEgg showed a result that the Aero was hitting 65-70 fps with 1440p resolution. Dropping down to 1080p resolution bumped the frames up to 100 fps on Epic Mode in Overwatch.

Temperature

“Heat-wise, the bottom of the Aero does become fairly toasty when gaming, which isn’t surprising. I’d suggest gaming with it on some sort of lap tray to help with airflow - and to keep your knees cool”, complained TrustedReview. Notwithstanding, the page Hexus gave a viewpoint that the system of the Aero 14 series becomes noticeably warm when gaming, but the fans do a decent job of expelling heat and, to our pleasant surprise, noise output isn’t obnoxious. The laptop is quiet enough when idle and though the fans can be heard clearly when either processor is placed under significant load, noise isn’t likely to be a major issue during general work.

Battery Life

About battery life, the reviewer of UnlockedNewEgg found that Gigabyte did a great job with battery management and performance throttling to dial in performance depending on needs. In his opinion, being able to crank out a few rounds of Overwatch plugged in at an airport and then have enough battery life for a 5-hour flight is pretty much impressive. And for TrustedReview, the Gigabyte Aero 14 managed 8 hours and 20 minutes in his very light Powermark battery benchmark, and in regular use he found he could get between six and seven hours. Also, as an evaluation of TechRadar, the portable rig lasted longest during their movie benchmark test, which loops a locally stored 1080p movie at 50% brightness and volume for 4 hours and 49 minutes. On the contrary, “Our battery rundown test entails looping a HD movie clip with 50% screen brightness and all wireless radios disabled, and in this scenario the 14-inch Gigabyte machine managed to keep going for the best part of nine hours” (Hexus’s quote).

Verdict

Overall, as a verdict on page TechRadar, Gigabyte’s gamings laptop have always offered outstanding performance packed into a thin frame at an affordable value, and the Aero 14 is not an exception as well. Particularly, this series stands above its peers with the better benchmark results, yet at a considerably lower price. There are a lot of advantages of the Gigabyte Aero 14, such as: the lightweight and thin design or the 190-degree display hinge. Furthermore, this laptop has not only the solid gaming performance with the Intel latest powerful processor but also the handsome Quad-HD IPS display. However, if there is a flaw of the Aero 14, it might be the unexpected audio, which is weaker when compared to the whole device generally. Yet, in general, it is a thin and light gaming laptop that doesn’t cost the earth, as a conclusion from TrustedReview, that’s worth celebrating. “Gigabyte’s understated Aero 14 is a sleeper in performance laptop market. It’s undeniably a Macbook Pro killer”, the UnlockedNewEgg concluded. Press Review by Capuchino Saber

Gigabyte Aero 14 GTX 970M Gaming Laptop Review
Source: eTeknix English
The Gigabyte Aero 14 is based on a minimalist design philosophy which makes it a suitable choice for professional work environments. Unlike many of their rivals, Gigabyte didn’t adopt customisable RGB lighting or implement a two-tone colour scheme which usually appeals to the core gaming demographic. Instead, they decided to stick with a simple black finish and added a stylish section which mimics the look of carbon fibre. The textured portion is absolutely breathtaking and contrasts with the laptop’s default colour tone remarkably well. This evokes such a sense of pride when using the product and it feels like you’re receiving an expensive piece of equipment.

The Gigabyte Aero 14 is a seriously impressive piece of kit.

All in a package that weighs less than 2kg.

Gigabyte Aero 14Wv7 has not been too long on the market, but people seem to be loving it. There is hardly anything bad to say about the laptop, all seems to work smooth and clean. From what I can see, this praising group of people is spot on. All of the important aspects are in check: the trio of CPU/RAM/storage are excellent, gaming performance is super with GTX1060, plenty of ports allow for many add-ons and the light weight lets you travel easy with the laptop. It is one of the pricier models for sure – but if you want all the good things in one package (performance, gaming, portability), you will find splendid value in this Gigabyte laptop!

86% Gigabyte Aero 14 (7700HQ, GTX 1060) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Breezy marathon runner. The Aero 14 is Gigabyte's first attempt at a mobile gaming laptop. The recipe for this seems quite simple, really. Start with high-end hardware, a well-made aluminum case, add a WQHD display and season to taste with a surprisingly capable battery. This much we can tell already: it performs very well but even this jack of all trades doesn't come without compromises.

But if you find your enthusiasm for the Aero 14 flagging, flip back to the first page of this review and recheck the price, then recheck its gaming performance. The Razer Blade has more polish or elegance, but you'll be able to buy half a dozen more games with the money you save on the Gigabyte. It's one of the best stealth fighters, able to look at ease in a conference room, then cut loose at a LAN party, that we've seen.

There are certainly a few other perks to the Aero 14. I’m very impressed with the storage performance, and the system boot times and how fast it loads games is certainly a pleasure. Even the USB 3.0 performance was pretty swift. The LED lit keyboard is nice, as is the large and responsive touchpad. Finally, little additions like the macro keys, the webcam, and the surprisingly punchy speakers all add up to a great value for money package.

The Gigabyte Aero 14 is an incredibly well-rounded gaming laptop for those who want a portable solution. It isn’t the thinnest gaming laptop on the market, but it’s still easy enough to carry around. The screen isn’t the brightest but it offers a solid picture with excellent color accuracy and vibrant contrast. The sound is a bit flat, but so are most laptops. The issues to do little to deter from what is a great overall product and best of all the high competitive configuration comes in well below $2,000.

Comment

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).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M:

Second fastest high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M: Lower high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell chip GM204 and GM206 (newer 2016 version with higher clock rates). Part of the GeForce GTX 900M series.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 965M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.» 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.  

6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.878 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

1.9 kg:


84.68%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
