85.4% Gigabyte Aero 15 XB laptop review: Taking the lead with OLED | Notebookcheck
After we recently had the Aero 17 HDR in our editorial department, it's now time for the new version of the Aero 15 OLED to show what it's capable of. It packs an octa-core processor, a Super Max-Q chip and a brilliant UHD display.

The Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED is a remarkable device for the creatively minded while also boasting the capability to run AAA games, offering a strong performance in an office-friendly chassis. The display and trackpad have few rivals, although some small issues may turn gaming fans away.

90% Gigabyte Aero 15 XB review (2020 model – OLED, i7-10875H, RTX 2070 Super)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
This 2020 15-inch Aero is among the better notebooks in its class. Gigabyte improved on the overall performance, thermals, and noise levels from the previous generation, which now add up to its existing strong suits, such as the sturdy build quality, the complete IO and inputs, the large battery and the multitude of available configurations. I'm just not sold on the OLED screen choice though, it looks awesome, but it's an expensive option and I'm warry of the technology's long term reliability in a laptop implementation, with all the static content that it has to display.

80% Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED XB Review: Intel's 10th Gen H-series processor has arrived
Source: Hardware Zone English
If you are familiar with last year’s Aero 15 OLED XA, then this year’s newer model is basically more of the same but with incremental performance and battery life. It is still the same gaming laptop with a stunning 4K edge-to-edge display, same keyboard, and trackpad and even chassis. That said however, it also retains the same kinks as its predecessor; the fans are still extremely noisy at maximum speed and the webcam is still located awkwardly at the bottom bezel. I thought it is a missed opportunity by Gigabyte to do some refinements to the Aero 15 OLED series with the XB, even if they are minor ones, and possibly turning it from a good gaming laptop to a ‘great’ one.

80% Gigabyte Aero 15 Review: Works Hard, Plays Hard
Source: The Verge English
The Gigabyte Aero 15 is a laptop aimed at designers and creative professionals. But when I first saw the thing, I didn’t believe that. It looks nothing like any laptop that comes to mind when I think of “creators” (the slim and sleek MacBook Pros, XPS 15s, Surface Books, and Zenbooks of the world). The Aero is a beast. It’s 15.6 inches wide and 4.4 pounds. It has a bright LED logo on its lid, large visible vents on the back and bottom, and a colorful RGB keyboard that will turn heads from across the office. This is a gaming laptop, I thought on my first day using it. Designers won’t want this.

The Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED (2020) is yet another brilliant laptop aimed at creative professionals. New for 2020 are updated components, including new Intel and Nvidia tech, but it's that gorgeous OLED screen that continues to win us over.

It might have a webcam in a silly place but that’s one of the only problems we can find with the Aero 15 OLED. This creative focused laptop combines a sleek and portable design with one of the best displays we’ve seen on a laptop, powerful internals and more. It just might cost too much for some.

I said at the beginning the Aero was neither a gaming laptop nor a workstation, but it can easily fill in for either. As an elegant thoroughbred for creative professionals, it richly deserves an Editors' Choice.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,560 shaders. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2070 Super to achieve a much lower power consumption. The TGP is specified at 80 Watts and therefore significantly lower than the RTX 2070 Super Mobile (115 Watt).

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


i7-10875H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates eight processor cores clocked at 2.3 - 5,1 GHz (all 8 cores up to 4.3 GHz) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


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).


78.12%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
