With the HDR version of the Aero 17, Gigabyte wants to please not only gamers, but also content creators and multimedia fans. The built-in display puts most of the competitors to shame.

In the newest upgrade of its all-rounder notebook, Gigabyte has primarily taken care of the hardware. As the processor, now a Comet Lake model is used instead of a Coffee Lake CPU. The Core i7-10875H should provide more than enough performance reserves for the next few years. On the other hand, in the native resolution of 3840 x 2160, the graphics card is pressed significantly harder. With the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q, Nvidia delivers a slightly upgraded version of the also very efficient RTX 2070 Max-Q.

However, many buyers would not only grab the HDR version because of its performance, but also because of its display. The 17-inch screen offers ample brightness, a huge color space, and a high pixel density, among other things. In addition, the X-Rite Pantone certification ensures a very accurate color reproduction. In return, users have to be content with a low frequency (only 60 Hz) and a meager response time.

Find out about the additional strengths and weaknesses of the Aero 17 in our detailed review.

Growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 90s, I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood. Especially computer games radiated a great fascination for me even then. From Monkey Island to Lands of Lore to Doom, everything was gambled that you could get your hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with focus on high-performance gaming notebooks.
