Gigabyte G5 KF review: Gaming laptop with RTX 4060 for 969 euros

Operating on the edge. This budget gaming notebook from Gigabyte features an Alder Lake processor and an Ada Lovelace GPU. It also has a PCIe 4.0 SSD (512 GB), 16 GB of RAM and an FHD panel (144Hz), but Windows doesn’t come preinstalled. One serious drawback: the included charger can sometimes be overloaded by the laptop.

The G5 KF is a gaming laptop in the lower price segment – the 15.6-inch device will set you back roughly €969 (US$1,026). Though a Windows licence isn’t included in the price. The Gigabyte laptop is competing with the likes of the MSI Cyborg 15 A12VF, Intel NUC X15, Lenovo Legion Slim 5 16APH8 and Asus TUF A15 FA507.

The G5 KF is a follow-up to the G5 KE and shares the same physical design. You can thus refer to our G5 KE review for more information on the chassis, features, input devices and display.

Display - 144Hz FHD panel

The matt FHD display (manufactured by Chi Mei) has been carried over from the G5 KE. Though it has a good viewing angle, the 144Hz IPS panel isn’t up to standard when it comes to brightness and contrast. The display isn’t able to reproduce the usual colour spaces (sRGB, AdobeRG and DCI-P3). But at least it doesn’t exhibit PWM flicker at any brightness level. There are no other panel options available. The Asus TUF A15, Intel NUC X15 and Lenovo Slim 5 16APH8 are all kitted out with better displays.

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
10.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9.9 ms rise
↘ 7.9 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.6 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
25.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11.7 ms rise
↘ 13.4 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 29 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34 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 18170 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance - Alder Lake meets Ada Lovelace

With the G5 KF, Gigabyte has a relatively affordable FHD gaming laptop in their product lineup. The laptop sports a Core i5-12500H and GeForce RTX 4060 and can be had for slightly under €1,000 (US$1,059). The company also offers less expensive models with the RTX 4050 (G5 MF) or RTX 3050 (G5 GE).

Processor

The 12 CPU cores on the Core i5-12500H (4 P-cores, 8 E-cores) can reach max frequencies of 4.5 GHz (P) and 3.3 GHz (E). Under sustained multi-thread loading (i.e. CB15 in a loop), the clock speed dropped slightly between the first and the second run and stayed at a relatively constant level after that.

The benchmark results are on par with what we’ve seen from the CPU on average (when plugged in). On battery power, the more relevant single-thread score in CB15 (159 points) saw a smaller decrease than the multi-thread score (741 point).

Mass storage

Gigabyte has equipped the G5 with a 512 GB SSD (PCIe 4.0, M2. 2280) from SSSTC that delivers great data transfer speeds. That said, it is prone to performance drops caused by thermal throttling. The notebook also has a PCIe 3.0 slot to accommodate a second M.2 2280 SSD.

A PCIe 4.0 SSD serves as the system drive.
