Gigabyte G5 GD in review: Affordable gaming laptop without Windows

Best RTX 3050 performance. For just under 750 Euros (~$848), you can get the G5 GD, a gaming laptop equipped with a Tiger Lake hexa-core processor and a GeForce RTX 3050 laptop GPU. The laptop offers space for up to three storage drives.

Its configuration (Core i5-11400HGeForce RTX 3050) and pricing (around 750 Euros (~$848)) position the Gigabyte G5 GD as an entry-level gaming laptop. Competitors include devices like the Lenovo Legion 5 15ACH, the MSI GF65 Thin 10UE, and the Dell G15 5515.

We won't go into further details regarding the case, connectivity, input devices, and speakers in this review. The corresponding information can be found in the review of the identically built Gigabyte G5 KC.

Display - 144 Hz IPS

While the contrast (1,374:1) of the matte 15.6-inch display (1920x1080 pixels) meets the target (> 1,000:1), the average brightness (245.7 cd/m²) is too low. We consider values beyond 300 cd/m² to be good. The 144 Hz panel has poor response times. PWM flickering was not observed.

* ... smaller is better

Out of the box, color reproduction deviates slightly from the target. However, this is not noticeable. Calibration only provides minor improvements. Furthermore, the panel doesn't suffer from a blue tint. The display can't represent the AdobeRGB (43%), sRGB (62%), and DCI-P3 (42%) color spaces.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
23.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13.2 ms rise
↘ 10 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 42 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
34.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.4 ms rise
↘ 18 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 36 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (35.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19454 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The viewing-angle stable IPS panel can be read from any position. Outdoor readability is possible when the sun isn't shining too brightly.

Test conditions

The preinstalled Control Center allows choosing a performance profile (see table), among other things. We used the "Entertainment Mode" profile including automatic fan control. We also performed some benchmarks under the "Performance Mode" and "Power Saving Mode" profiles. The results can be found in the comparison tables.

Power Limit 2 135 watts 109 watts 30 watts 30 watts

Self-help advice: BIOS problems with the G5 GD

The test device provided to us exhibited a problem: CPU throttling while running 3D applications. This was reflected in choppy games - sometimes to a greater extent, sometimes to a lesser extent. It was possible to trace the problem back to the BIOS: Out of the seven BIOS versions released so far, only the first three versions (FB01 to FB03) work without problems - our test device was shipped with BIOS version FB07. Therefore, we ultimately chose to install BIOS version FB03 to carry out our testing.

Windows 10 or Windows 11 - It depends on the BIOS version

The G5 is only compatible with Windows 11 starting with BIOS version FB06. Earlier versions cause the laptop to freeze even before the actual boot of a previously installed Windows 11 OS. Windows 10 works with all BIOS versions.

Processor

The Core i7-11400H hexa-core processor (Tiger Lake) reaches clock rates of 4.1 GHz (six cores) to 4.5 GHz (one core). Hyper-Threading (two threads per core) is supported. The CPU tests of the CB R15 benchmark are run at 4.1 GHz (multi) and 4.1 to 4.5 GHz (single). The clock rates are 1.9 to 2 GHz (multi) and 3.1 to 4.5 GHz (single), respectively, on battery power.

Multithread (plugged in)
Multithread (plugged in)
Single-thread (plugged in)
Single-thread (plugged in)

The Cinebench R15 multi endurance test (min. 30 minutes) shows that the CPU Turbo is used continuously - at a medium level. A slight increase of the Turbo clock rate is achieved by selecting the "Performance Mode" profile.

Odd: While the "Performance Mode" profile increases multithread performance a bit, single-thread performance drops at the same time. This might be related to the outdated BIOS version that we had to install.

DPC latencies

Our standardized latency monitor test (web browsing, 4K video playback, high-load Prime95) revealed irregularities with DPC latencies. The system doesn't seem to be suitable for real-time video and audio editing. Future software updates could lead to improvements or even to worse performance.

Storage

A 512 GB NVMe SSD (M.2 2280) from Phison serves as system drive. The connection via PCIe 4 makes for very good transfer rates. Storage space could be expanded through a second M.2 SSD (PCIe 3/SATA) and a 2.5-inch storage drive. Both M.2 slots can accommodate SSDs in the 2242, 2260, and 2280 formats.

The G5 can accommodate two M.2 SSDs.
The G5 can accommodate two M.2 SSDs.
