86.1% Gigabyte Aero 17 XA HDR Laptop Review: This is a *Really* Good 17-inch Laptop | Notebookcheck
Gigabyte has just created one of the best 17.3-inch laptops in the market for both professionals and gamers alike. The system packs almost everything you'd want in an ultrathin package including both long battery life and high graphics performance - an uncommon combination.

Gigabyte's Aero 17 HDR boasts a ton of excellent qualities for a gaming laptop -- a bright 4K display, comfortable keyboard, solid battery life and great overall performance -- everything except for gaming performance, and a well-placed webcam (sigh).

Review: Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR
Source: Hexus English
The extra screen real estate is a star attraction for both productivity and gaming, and Gigabyte delivers such high-end capabilities in a sleek package that bears little resemblance to the chunky 17.3in laptops of the past. Connectivity is excellent, the full-size keyboard and trackpad get most things right, and battery life is sufficient for a full day's work. The price tag is an obvious hurdle, and the webcam is still terrible, but Aero 17 HDR gets plenty right.

The GIGABYTE AERO 17 XA is a great laptop that is suitable for a wide variety of users out there. The display is excellent for colour-accurate, creative work but the performance is also strong enough for you to game on it. The battery life is surprisingly good especially given the powerful hardware.

87% Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR XB Laptop Review: Super Max-Q at the Start | Notebookcheck
While the Aero 17 HDR corresponds to its predecessor externally, a lot has happened under the hood. In addition to the new CPU, the 17-inch gaming laptop also offers an updated GPU. Find out here how well these fresh components can work with one another.
86% Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR review: A big, bright content creation machine
Source: Engadget English
The Aero 17 HDR XB is another strong model in Gigabyte’s powerful hybrid laptop lineup. The key feature is a very bright and colorful 4K 17.3-inch HDR display. As usual, it has an understated design that hides great specs, including Intel’s 8-core i7-10875H CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q graphics. That helps it fly for both video editing or gaming. It is a bit heavy, though and has a poorly positioned webcam.

Lisa Gade reviews the 2020 Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR (model XB) with Intel 10th gen Core i7 and Core i9 CPUs and NVIDIA RTX 2070 and 2080 Super Max-Q graphics (RTX 2060 on the base model). The HDR model has a 17.3” wide gamut 4K IPS HDR 400 display (an OLED model is also available). The gaming laptop has staid looks and is also designed for 2D and particularly 3D content creators. The machine is relatively slim and light, yet it packs a high capacity 94 WHr battery. It has Thunderbolt 3, 2 M.2 SSD slots, 2 RAM slots, Ethernet, a full size SD card slot and more. Their Fusion per key RGB backlit keyboard is standard, as is a MS Precision trackpad. It benchmarks well and offers the expected high fps in games.

80% Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR XB review: Huge power, huge screen
Source: It Pro English
The Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR XB is an impressive powerhouse. The new Intel 10th Gen CPU offers tremendous speed – it’s almost able to match the Core i9 CPU in the more expensive MacBook Pro 16, and it easily outpaces equivalent 9th Gen chips. Gigabyte’s machine easily beats the Apple notebook for graphical pace, too. This notebook will handle virtually any high-end work task, and arguably offers more balance than the MacBook. You’ll only find more power by searching out workstation-level CPUs and professional graphics chips.

It’s far from perfect: We didn’t get into the fan noise, but let’s say they’re often loud when set to the gaming profile, and border on being too loud. The speakers are nothing special. And don't forget the nose cam.

There are a few niggles that remain - noise levels continue to frustrate, the webcam needs moving, and 10th Gen Core is only a mild upgrade - yet with comprehensive connectivity, a full-size keyboard and decent battery life, Aero 17 HDR gets plenty right. Better still, renewed competition has led to a re-think on pricing, and though £2,700 remains a significant chunk of change, the 2020 model is considerably more affordable than its predecessor.

The modest flexibility in the chassis is only a concern for people who plan to use the notebook as a mobile laptop instead of the desktop alternative it was clearly designed to be, and its swift performance and sunny, colorful 4K screen are huge pluses.

80% Gigabyte Aero 17 review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR YD ticks off all the essential boxes of what a creative professional needs in a mobile production laptop. It’s not too heavy, and the 17.3-inch, 4K display is vivid and color accurate, allowing for excellent color grading results. The powerful Intel Core i9 CPU bundled with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 GPU can handle your video and image editing needs without batting an eyelash. However, the Aero 17 HDR is expensive, with so-so audio and can get hot when gaming. And while it’s no worse than the competition, the battery life will have you searching for a power outlet. If more power is what you desire, you’ll want to take a look at the Origin Eon 17-X. However, keep in mind at $2,945, it’s seriously expensive and has an even shorter battery life. That said, the Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR YD is still one of the better c options for content creators.

Comment

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 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 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.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Mobile: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,944 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA104 chip. At the time of the launch in early 2021, the 3080 is the fastest laptop graphics card on the market.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA104 chip. Available in different versions with a TDP from 80 to 125 Watt.
