Gigabyte G6X 9KG (2024) review: Affordable gaming notebook with RTX 4060

Coherent. Gigabyte's gaming notebook offers plenty of performance with a Core i7-13650HX and GeForce RTX 4060 combination along with decent accompanying hardware that includes 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, and a 165 Hz 16:10 panel. Our tested configuration retails at around €1,350.
Gigabyte G6X 9KG in review

The Gigabyte G6X 9KG is among the affordable gaming notebooks with a price of just under €1,350. The laptop is powered by the Intel Core i7-13650HX Raptor Lake-HX CPU and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 Ada Lovelace Laptop GPU.

The competition includes laptops such as the Dell G16, Lenovo Legion 5 16IRX G9, MSI Raider GE68HX 13VF, and Asus TUF Gaming A16 FA617XS.

Case and features: The G6X lacks Thunderbolt 4

The base unit of the G6X's matt-grey ("Gunmetal Grey") chassis is made of plastic while aluminum is used for the back of the lid. There are no noticeable workmanship defects; the stability and rigidity seem fine. The battery and the other internal components are accessible after removing the base shell.

The Gigabyte G6X 9KG has one each of USB 3.2 Gen 1 and 1x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports and two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports that individually offer Power Delivery and DisplayPort-out. All in all, the G6X has two video outputs (1x HDMI, 1x DP). There is no memory card reader. The 1280 x 720 0.9 MP webcam delivers standard fare.

We achieved excellent Wi-Fi data throughput under optimal test conditions wherein there are no Wi-Fi devices in the immediate vicinity and at a short 1 m distance between the laptop and  the server PC. The notebook uses an Intel AX211 Wi-Fi 6E chip. Wired connections are handled by a Realtek RTL8168/8111 controller.

Input devices: Backlit keyboard suitable for everyday use

The G6X's sports a chiclet keyboard with a numpad, RGB lighting, and flat, smooth keys that are amenable for daily typing needs. The keyboard yields slightly when typing, but this is not a dealbreaker.

The key resistance feels crisp. A good aspect is that the arrow keys are full-sized.

A multi-touch touchpad (12.1 cm x 8.5 cm) with a short stroke and clear pressure point serves as a mouse replacement.

The responsive 165 Hz 16:10 panel with a 1920 x 1200 resolution does not show PWM flickering at any brightness setting.

The brightness and contrast of the matte 16-inch display meet the respective advertised targets (> 300 cd/m² and 1,000:1). Gigabyte does not offer other display options for the G6X.

The display shows a mediocre color reproduction ex works: With a deviation of around 5.2, the deltaE 2000 target of < 3 is not met. Calibration reduces the deviation to 3.6 and ensures more balanced shades of gray.

The panel cannot fully reproduce the AdobeRGB, sRGB, and DCI-P3 color spaces. In this respect, the G6X's competitors offer better screens.

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
21.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11.1 ms rise
↘ 10.5 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. » 41 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (21.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
40.5 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19 ms rise
↘ 21.5 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 59 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (33.7 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 17900 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel offers relatively stable viewing angles that can be read from extreme positions. It is possible to use the display outdoors if the sun is not too bright.

Processor

The 14 CPU cores of the Core i7-13650HX (6P+8E) reach maximum clock rates of 4.9 GHz (P) and 3.6 GHz (E). Continuous multi-thread load (Cinebench R15 multi-core loop) causes the clock rate to drop from the fourth to the fifth run. After that, a fairly constant level is maintained. The Performance mode ensures permanently higher values.

The benchmark values are slightly below the CPU average, but the Performance mode results in small gains. In battery mode, the more relevant single-thread performance in Cinebench R15 drops to a lesser extent (168 points) than the multi-thread performance (1,225 points).

Mass storage

The G6X can accommodate a total of two M.2 2280 PCIe Gen 4 SSDs. RAID is not supported. The 1 TB Gigabyte SSD in our test device delivers very good data rates.

We did not observe any thermal throttling issues, which is a good thing.
