Reviews for the Gigabyte Aero 15-Y9
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.

Gigabyte's Aero 15 is a thin, light Core i9 gaming laptop with Nvidia's latest GeForce RTX graphics, plus an AI algorithm that auto-adjusts CPU and GPU settings to eke out better performance. It's solid and attractive, but a bit pricey and outrun by other RTX entrants.
