At a price of just under 2,300 Euros (~$2,705), the Aero 15 OLED XD offers a decent price-performance ratio. It's equipped with an Intel Core i7-11800H and 32 GB of RAM as well as a 1 TB SSD that is connected via PCI Express Gen 4. Besides the integrated iGPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 with a 105-watt TDP is also on board for rendering image content.

Despite a comparatively low TGP of 105 watts, the gaming performance is excellent. Even 4K titles can be brought to life smoothly on the gorgeous OLED panel when you tweak the details a bit. Tiger Lake goes all out here and does a good job in our Cinebench R15 continuous load test, coming close to the level of the AMD 5800H. The device is also completely able to convince in our simulated daily workflow with PCMark 10.

Gigabyte installs a 15-inch 4K AMOLED panel here that is very bright and runs at a refresh rate of 60 Hz. This makes the laptop suitable for outdoor use despite the glossy display. The contrast values are very good, and color spaces like sRGB and AdobeRGB are both almost fully covered.

With a wide range of ports, our test device covers just about every port that one could need. HDMI 2.1 and several Thunderbolt 4 ports ensure that the device is up to date. Unfortunately, the power supply is located in an unfavorable position, resulting in the space available for the use of a mouse being limited.

The visually attractive and comparatively light case is very sturdy and creates a high-quality impression.

Our in-depth review reveals what else the Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED XD is capable of.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
