98% How Solid is The GIGABYTE G5 KC-5US1130SH?
Source: PCR English
This laptop nearly checks off every box for what you can possibly look for in a 15-inch gaming laptop. And for the price, it is pretty solid. The CPU and RTX 3060 (with 6GB VRAM) are certainly better than most laptops at this price with the 4GB VRAM RTX 3050. It also packs 16GB of RAM out of the box rather than 8GB, and 512GB SSD rather than 256GB storage. The smooth 144Hz IPS display, RGB backlit keyboard, and plenty of connectors onboard are additional features that many gamers will appreciate. Given the RTX 3060 GPU and the current shipment difficulties of hardware, GIGABYTE G5 KC-5US1130SH is an incredible value for its price. The GIGABYTE G5 KC-5US1130SH has what you need in a 15.6" gaming laptop if you want to have the RTX 3060 and 16GB RAM. We also appreciate its additional features like the 144Hz screen and RGB backlit keyboard.

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.
