Gigabyte Aero 15

Gigabyte Aero 15 is a high-end notebook with a stylish design after the successful Aero 14. It is a multimedia notebook with gaming capabilities or a gaming laptop with all-around nature. The Aero 15 is attractive thanks to its slim design and long battery runtimes. With a height of only 19 mm (~0.75 in), the 15-inch model appears very slim and can be comfortably transported. The low weight also contributes to the latter: 2.1 kg (~4.6 lb) does not really indicate that a 45-watt CPU and a gaming GPU are inside. The almost frameless display which is only about 5 mm/0.2 in along the top, left, and right edges is another advantage. However, the slim display bezels mean the webcam is placed below the display, which gives it an awkward angle for video chatting. The chassis, which is primarily made of aluminium, is meticulously built and can hardly be twisted even when strong pressure is applied. There are three colour variants of the Aero 15 or more precisely its lid. Apart from classic black, Gigabyte also offers a subtle green and a medium-bold orange. The 15-inch model uses a Core i7-7700HQ and a GeForce GTX 1060. Currently, these components are very popular in laptops from similar price range which offers a good compromise between price and performance. The Kaby Lake processor and the Pascal graphics card are accompanied by 16GB of DDR4 RAM and an M.2-SSD with 256 to 512 GB, which uses either SATA III or PCIe technology.
The display is a matte 15.6-inch IPS panel with 1920x1080 pixels. The display hinge which extends over almost the entire width and allows a view of the fan grilles does not show flows. Although the device can be easily opened with one hand, the lid does not wobble too much when the device sits on a vibrating surface. The Aero 15 keyboard is decent. Its travel distance is good for a gaming laptop, with a nice clicky response to the rubber dome keycaps. The amount of force required to activate each key makes it a great option for both typing and gaming. Gigabyte includes full RGB backlighting in the Aero 15 with the ability to individually customise the colour of every key. A user can achieve awesome effects through the Gigabyte Fusion utility. The powerful battery is one of the biggest unique features of the Aero 15: 94 Wh is very big and can be found in only a few performance notebooks. Other highlights include the very slim display frame, which competes with the Infinite Edge design of the Dell XPS 15, and the Thunderbolt 3 port.

80% Gigabyte Aero 15 Review

The $1,899 asking price of the Aero 15 seems relatively steep when you consider just the hardware. The Acer Predator Helios 300 as we tested it was $800 less, yet had the same processor, GPU, amount of RAM, and screen resolution as our Aero 15. From a purely price-to-performance perspective, the Aero 15 isn’t all that impressive. But properly framed in the context of its design, overall quality, long battery life, and extras like the RGB-backlit keyboard, it’s hard to argue that the value proposition isn’t there. It’s well worth a first, second, and third look.

The Gigabyte Aero 15 is a colorful and sleek gaming laptop that could double as a productivity machine, thanks to its portability, wonderful display and keyboard. But the notebook doesn't last very long on a charge, and its janky touchpad and oddly placed webcam sour the experience. This was a notebook I wanted to love, but after suffering through those issues, I could only manage to like it very much.

The Gigabyte Aero 15 – For The Working Gamer?
Source: Tech Girl English
All in the all this baby is hot. My best friend/housemate is currently in the market for a new notebook and I imagine this would be the ideal one for her. It is small and slim enough for her to take to work and travel with while it has enough stuff under the hood to allow her to game. She also digs the look of it. It really is a sexy little piece of hardware. However, all that power does come with a price. You’re looking at a starting cost of about R30 000 for this baby (which, in all honesty, is what you’re paying for the equivalent MacBook and that doesn’t let you game).

Rounding out the powerful hardware is Nvidia’s excellent GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, which is adequate for a screen of this resolution. The overall high-level of interior specs goes a long way to explain the rather hefty price tag; it’s possible to get similar sized machines at more affordable prices, but they won’t have such a healthy spread of high-end specs. As our benchmarks show, they combine to deliver a powerful machine, with surprisingly lengthy battery life.

Source: Hardware Zone English
There’s the Razer Blade if you’re really looking for something small, but if what you want is larger gaming real estate, the Aero 15 should be near the top of your list of contenders. Its long battery life also means that working away from a power outlet isn’t such a crazy idea for a gaming laptop any more, and this gives the Aero 15 an added degree of versatility.

Back to those tradeoffs, though: Despite Gigabyte’s best efforts to avoid them, something always has to give. Here, it comes in the form of weight. Three or four years ago, a 4.7-pound machine might have been OK for a road warrior. Today, that kind of heft really weighs down your shoulder bag to the point where you’ll have to think carefully about whether the 15.6-inch display is worth the extra pounds.

Yes, a GeForce GTX 1070-class GPU is a little overkill for gaming at 1920x1080 at 60Hz, and probably justified only if you're looking for future-proofing or to play using an external monitor.

This machine could use some work in the keyboard and touchpad departments – especially if it wants to do double-duty as a gaming notebook and a notebook for schoolwork. If this notebook is going to be yours for work as well as play, I recommend buying a mouse and even possibly a separate keyboard, with a wrist-rest. It’s always a good time for wrist resting.

Gigabyte’s latest laptop is a rare notebook that doesn’t do much wrong. Its components have ample power for gaming and for its intended work tasks, and the calibrated screen offers more quality than most of its rivals. It’s ergonomically sound, relatively slim and light, and even has decent battery life. It’s a little expensive, but it’s a top-quality option for work and play.

80% Gigabyte Aero 15W V8 review – A feast for the eyes
Source: Htxt Africa English
With powerful internals and a gorgeous exterior the Gigabyte Aero 15W V8 won't look out of place in the work place or a LAN party. While we lament the lack of an HDD we recognise it would have added weight to a slim machine. The heat we feel through the keyboard becomes uncomfortable and that also loses this notebook some points. The display is the real star here and it alone earns the 15W V8 a recommendation from us.

80% Gigabyte Aero 15-15W V8 (2018) Review
Source: Toptenreviews English
Gigabyte has done some work optimising the battery life, allowing it to get over 7 hours of movie playback when in Performance mode. And while the unit is on the heavy side at a little over 2kg, for something with this much power and battery life, it’s actually exceptionally lightweight. The updated model does sacrifice the 3,000/1,500MB/S NVMe SSD from last year’s model for a slower 500MB/s SATA SSD, but this is the device’s only real step backwards — and it’s a largely inconsequential one.

Gigabyte Aero 15-X9

The Gigabyte Aero 15-X9 is a powerful but slim gaming laptop. Gigabyte has managed to outshine its competitors by collaborating with Intel - the world renowned tech giant. This time round, the AERO uses a combination of high-performance parts by Intel, called the All Intel Inside technology. The Gigabyte Aero 15-X9 uses a whole block of aluminum to produce a refined laptop lid which is striking to the eye, solid to the touch and ultra-durable for daily use. The chassis is further made from compressed aluminum construction to create a strong yet light body. All this measures and weighs in at just 1.8 cm / 2.0 kg. Non-stop creativity is achieved through the use of a smooth and powerful processor. The AERO is now upgraded with a brand new, class leading, 6 core high-performance Intel Core i9-8950HK CPU. Users can express their creativity in the smoothest way possible. Gigabyte has chosen to equip the AERO with high-grade, high-performance Samsung DDR4 memory that decreases battery consumption, provides high speed transfer and overall memory quality. As for storage, the Intel 760p SSD is what takes transfer speed to the next level, with up to 3,200 MB/s read speed that lets users work without any long waiting times. Furthermore, the AERO is designed to take two of these speedy SSDs to increase the total storage space to meet users' needs. Powerful performance comes from effective cooling technology, the AERO comes with 2 uniquely designed fans and cooling system built in, adapting both CPU and GPU, effectively dissipating the heat. This results in keeping parts working longer and at constant peak performance. For display, the 4K UHD IPS display does not only offer the best resolution density in its class, it also comes at 100 % Adobe RGB color gamut that brings wider and more accurate colors than that of a tradition sRGB gamut. The AERO is fitted with a 144 Hz refresh rate display that creates buttery smooth images without jitter or lag. Furthermore, it effectively decreases ghosting and image tearing for both work and play. To enhance audio, it has NAHIMIC 3, which is the next gen 7.1 virtual surround sound that provides outstanding sound experience and performance. From gaming to conference calls, the NAHIMIC 3 brings true 3D surround effect that can be tuned easily with the provided software to suit any environment for the perfect sound experience. Every key found on the AERO keyboard is fully per-key 16.77 million color RGB backlit plus anti-ghosting. In addition, a full customizable per key macro feature records your input commands (keyboard and mouse) to achieve an array of unique combo functions. With both RGB lighting and macro keys, the AERO keyboard turns into a multi-functional tool that defiantly benefit you, even in the dark. As a conclusion, the Gigabyte Aero 15-X9 is certainly a gaming laptop that is designed to stand out among competitors, especially being the world’s only "All Intel Inside" and world's first Microsoft Azure AI notebook. It is a laptop that sets new gaming laptop standards. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

The slim and compact Aero 15-X9 succeeds the popular Aero 15X v8 that we reviewed last year. The new 15.6-inch gaming laptop handles modern triple-A games smoothly on its 144 Hz, 1080p display thanks to its Core i7-8750H processor, RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU and 16 GB DDR4-2666 RAM. Its NVMe SSD should ensure solid system performance too, while its Thunderbolt 3 port gives you the option of connecting an external GPU should you wish to run a desktop GPU. Read on to find out how it performs in our tests and whether it can set new standards for thin and light gaming laptops.
80% Gigabyte Aero 15 (15-X9) review: Unfulfilled potential, but not wasted
Source: It Pro English
You won't get more CPU power in a laptop at this size, though, and Gigabyte's machine offers it with more GPU power and a lower price than the competition. The Aero 15-X9 isn't a flawless mobile workstation, but it's a good option if you need more power than other machines at this size can deliver.

80% Gigabyte Aero 15 X9 review and benchmarks (i7-8750H, RTX 2070 Max-Q, FHD 144 Hz screen)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
There are quite a few aspects the Gigabyte Aero 15 does better than most, if not all of the other 15-inch thin-and-light performance laptops on the market, and we've covered them in the article down below, but at the same time this device is quirkier than the competition, so it's not for everyone. The design, keyboard, sound, and thermals are among its antagonizing aspects, while the sturdy build, long battery life, complete IO, upgradeability, and even competitive pricing are among it's stronger points.

All in all, I can see why so many swear by the Aero 15, but also why threads like this one exist on the forums. It’s more a utilitarian and gimmicky product than the other options in its already narrow niche, with its share of unique strong-points, but also potential deal-breaking quirks. On top of that, the chances of you running into Quality Control issues is another aspect to consider, so if you decide this is the right pick for you, make sure to buy from a place that handles warranty claims and post-sale support impeccably, in the eventuality you’ll need these services later on.

80% Gigabyte Aero 15-X9 Review – with RTX 2070 Max-Q
Source: Kitguru English
We hate to wrap up a review with a piece of wishy washy vagueness but right now we are waiting to see what Nvidia does next. Our natural inclination is to wait and see how Aero 15-X9 develops over the next few months as it does not currently offer a compelling reason to upgrade a 2018 laptop. Of course it is a different story if you need a grunty laptop right now as your buying decision becomes a question of which RTX laptop you should buy, rather than whether or not you should buy. In that context Gigabyte 15-X9 certainly deserves your consideration.

88% Gigabyte Aero 15 Y9 review: RTX 2080 performance, at a price
Source: Engadget English
That's not Gigabyte's fault, though. It took the components it had and made a well-designed, fast and lightweight laptop that can grind through the most challenging games and content-creation chores. The company made it even better with tweaks to the touchpad and elsewhere, and the only shortcoming in this particular model (or any 4K laptop) is the battery life. It's also costly, but again, the price should hold up to rivals. Overall, the Aero 15 Y9 is an easy laptop to recommend.

Having said all that, I really have few complaints about the Aero 15Y as a whole, and I think it will be very competitive going forward. I just wish Gigabyte was offering a version with a GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q and a 1080p 144Hz display.

The well-equipped Aero 15-Y9 allows (almost) all games to be played smoothly on its matte 4K screen. However, Gigabyte has chosen to equip the laptop with only the Max-Q variant of the GeForce 2080. As a result, it isn't able to offer much more gaming performance above the Aero-15 models with RTX 2070 Max-Q GPUs.

Powered by the new Nvidia Turing GPU architecture and the revolutionary RTX platform, RTX graphics cards bring together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading. The Intel 760p 512 GB SSD is what takes transfer speed to the next level, with up to 3.200 MB/s read speed. It lets users work without any long waiting times. Furthermore, the Aero is designed to take two of these speedy SSD’s to increase the total storage space to meet their needs. As for the display, the Gigabyte Aero 15 Classic-XA comes with world’s first 3 mm thin-bezel display with X-Rite Pantone Certification. Every panel fitted on the Aero gets calibrated and certified with world-renowned X-Rite Pantone1 calibration technology before it leaves the factory, giving perfect color accuracy and wider color spectrum the second users turn on the Aero. Gigabyte added another durability innovation to the Aero through a uniquely designed display bezel bumper, which protects the display by dampening different types of impact. The Gigabyte Aero uses a whole block of aluminium to produce a refined laptop lid, which is striking to the eye, solid to the touch and ultra-durable for daily use. The chassis is further made from compressed aluminium construction to create a strong yet light body. All these measures at 1.8 cm and weighs in at 2.0 kg. The Aero 15 Classic keyboard is upgraded with the all-new RGB Fusion 2.0 technology. In addition to full macro customization functions, the gaming and multimedia experience has just bumped up to a whole new standard. Powerful performance comes from effective cooling technology. The Aero comes with two uniquely designed fans and cooling system built in, adapting both CPU and GPU, effectively dissipating heat. This results in keeping parts working longer and at constant peak performance. As a conclusion, the Gigabyte Aero 15 Classic-XA is a high-performance laptop catered for users who multitask a lot or run resource-demanding programs. It is a very versatile laptop for work, multimedia editing, and gaming. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

And that’s kind of the heart of it. The display on the new Aero 15 OLED isn’t just gorgeous. In many ways, it’s kinda the only thing really worth talking about. Even by the standards of laptop refreshes, this is a pretty minor revision. There are plenty of other content creation laptops out there that run the same 9th-Gen Intel Core processors or Nvidia RTX graphics. There aren’t that many out there with OLED screens. If having that OLED screen actually matters to you, you’ll probably want to put some serious consideration into whether it’s worth paying the premium. What you’re getting here is good but, at the same time, most of the differences and evolution that the Aero 15 OLED offers are only skin deep.

But the Aero 15's strong performance, 240-Hz display, deep-travel keyboard and long battery life stuffed into a slim, aluminum chassis make its $2,499 price tag worth considering. However, it's hard to ignore the glaring bottom-bezel webcam, the ridiculously high temperatures and dimmer-than-average screen.

Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED XA

Gigabyte has once again exceeded the expectations of many through the introduction of another high-performance laptop model bearing the name of Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED XA. The Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED XA is an Intel 9th generation laptop model, which is by happenstance the world’s only All Intel Inside model.

The Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED is a solid performer with a gorgeous OLED panel, it's comfortable to type on and it's all wrapped in a sleek, 0.8-inch package. However, its use of the Microsoft Azure AI could have been utilized better, and the bottom-bezel webcam isn't helping anyone. For $2,779, you can get the Alienware m15, which boasts an even more colorful panel, longer battery life and a webcam that's located where it's supposed to be (on top). However, the Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED still holds its own among the best gaming laptops, due to its solid power and stunning display.

The Areo 15 OLED's new 4K HDR screen is better than anything we've seen as a color-calibrated portable work display or high-resolution on-the-go gaming monitor. This vibrant screen is a bonus on an already powerful, compact and reasonably priced laptop.

That said, there's still a lot to like about the laptop. Aside from the absolutely stellar display, you get a tasteful aluminum chassis in black that feels like quality stuff.

And that’s kind of the heart of it. The display on the new Aero 15 OLED isn’t just gorgeous. In many ways, it’s kinda the only thing really worth talking about. Even by the standards of laptop refreshes, this is a pretty minor revision. There are plenty of other content creation laptops out there that run the same 9th-Gen Intel Core processors or Nvidia RTX graphics. There aren’t that many out there with OLED screens. If having that OLED screen actually matters to you, you’ll probably want to put some serious consideration into whether it’s worth paying the premium. What you’re getting here is good but, at the same time, most of the differences and evolution that the Aero 15 OLED offers are only skin deep.

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 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.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q: Efficient high end graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the same GP104 chip as the normal GTX 1070 for laptops but at slower clock speeds. Offers a approx. 15% lower performance but much lower power consumption. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (Laptop): Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1660 Ti and therefore the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores. The performance of the Max-P variant should be similar to an older GTX 1070.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 RTX 2070 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Offers reduced clock speeds to achieve a much lower power consumption.NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,944 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2080 to achieve a much lower power consumption.» 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.  

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++). 9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). Intel Core i9:

8950HK: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.9- 4.8 GHz (4.3 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). Offers an unlocked multiplier that allows overclocking of the CPU.

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

2.214 kg:

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