Gigabyte G7 KE in review: Affordable gaming laptop with a powerful RTX 3060

Room for improvement. With a Core i5-12500H CPU and a GeForce RTX 3060 laptop GPU, all current titles look smooth on the matte FHD screen (300 Hz). The CPU and GPU are accompanied by a fast PCIe-4 SSD (1 TB), 16 GB of RAM, and a Thunderbolt 4 port. A copy of the Windows operating system is not included.

The G7 KE is a 17.3-inch gaming laptop from the lower price range. Gigabyte combines an Alder Lake Core i5 CPU with a RTX 3060 GPU for around 1,200 Euros (~1,300 USD). Cheaper models with a GeForce RTX 3050 (G7 GE) or GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (G7 ME) are also available. Competitors include devices such as the HP Pavilion Gaming 17, Acer Nitro 5 AN517-55, Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 15IAH7 or the Asus TUF Gaming F17 FX707Z.

Case - G7 With a Plastic Chassis

Gigabyte does not use premium materials for the chassis of the G7. Instead, the manufacturer relies on black plastic with smooth, matte surfaces. There are a few subtle, visual, black and gray accents printed on the back of the lid and the clickpad. The design of the chassis is very straightforward otherwise and could be described as "functional". The battery (screwed in, not glued) and the other internal components can be accessed after removing the bottom plate.

The build quality of the chassis warrants no criticism. The clearances are tight and there is no protruding excess material. Although the base unit can be twisted from the corners, this should not be an issue during daily use. The rigidity of the lid leaves something to be desired, however. While the hinges hold the display firmly in place, they allow for some teetering. The display can be opened up to a maximum angle of about 140 degrees. Opening the lid with one hand is possible.

The G7 is one of the most compact and lightweight 17.3-inch devices in our comparison. Only the Asus TUF Gaming F17 manages to surpass it by a small margin.

Connectivity - Gigabyte Notebook With Thunderbolt 4

The G7 comes with two USB-A ports (1x USB 2.0, 1x USB 3.2 gen. 1) and two USB-C ports (1x USB 3.2 gen. 2, 1x Thunderbolt 4). The type-C interfaces do not support Power Delivery and only the TB4 port supports DisplayPort via USB-C. Combined with the HDMI port (2.1) and the dedicated Mini DisplayPort (1.4), this amounts to a total of three video outputs.

The G7's ports are distributed across three sides of the laptop. The two dedicated video outputs are located on the back of the device. Thus, connected cables run along the rear and do not get in the way. The same does not hold true for Ethernet cables: The port can be found on the right edge of the model.

Communication

Under ideal conditions (no other Wi-Fi devices in proximity, short distance between the laptop and server), the Wi-Fi transfer speeds are excellent and more or less exhaust the capabilities of the Wi-Fi module (Intel AX211; Wi-Fi 6E, 802.11ax). Meanwhile, a Gigabit Ethernet interface (I-219V) from Intel handles wired networking.

Accessories

Aside from the usual paperwork (quick-start guide and warranty information), the laptop also includes a screw for installing and a thermal pad for cooling the secondary SSD.

Maintenance

After removing all the screws on the bottom of the device, the bottom plate can be removed with the help of a sharp edge - it is attached very firmly in certain areas, however. On the inside, users can access the SSD (PCIe 4), the secondary M.2 slot (PCIe 3), the Wi-Fi module, the RAM slots (both in use), the BIOS battery, the fans, and the main battery.

Warranty

The 17.3-inch Gigabyte model comes with a standard, one-year limited warranty. There are currently no warranty extensions available.

Input Devices - Keyboard With RGB Backlighting

Keyboard

The flat, smooth keys of the backlit chiclet keyboard offer moderate travel and a distinct actuation point. The key feedback could have been firmer. The keyboard area slightly yields while typing, although this should not be an issue in practice. Good: The keyboard uses fullsize arrow keys. The RGB backlight (four levels) can be controlled via three function keys. Overall, Gigabyte delivers a good keyboard for day-to-day use.

Touchpad

Thanks to the large, multi-touch enabled clickpad (~ 15.2 x 9.1 cm) there is technically no need for an external mouse, since the smooth surface offers good gliding properties. It is responsive all the way into the corners. The touchpad has short travel and a distinct actuation point.

Gigabyte fits the G7 with a matte 17.3-inch screen (1920 x 1080 pixels). The brightness (300 nits) and contrast ratio (1535:1) of the responsive 300-Hz panel meet and exceed our expectations (>300 nits and 1000:1). Additionally, the display does not suffer from PWM flickering at any brightness level.

* ... smaller is better

The color accuracy of the display is very good ex-factory: With a deviation of 1.32, it comfortably falls within the ideal range (deltaE < 3). After calibrating the display ourselves, the deviation drops to 1.03 for an even more precise representation of the grayscale. The display is capable of reproducing the entire sRGB color space (100 %), whereas the AdobeRGB (72 %) and DCI-P3 (70 %) color spaces cannot be displayed in their entirety. These results are similar to those of most competitors.

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
8.3 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.2 ms rise
↘ 4.1 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 14 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
5 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.1 ms rise
↘ 2.9 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 8 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than 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 19466 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel has good viewing angles and can be read from any angle. The outdoor readability is good as well, provided the sun does not shine too brightly.

Processor

The Core i5-12500H processor (Alder Lake) consists of four performance cores (Hyper-Threading, 2.5 to 4.5 GHz) and eight efficiency cores (no Hyper-Threading, 1.8 to 3.3 GHz). Thus, there are a total of 16 logical CPU cores.

The average clock speeds during both the multi-core (P cores: 3.9 to 4.2 GHz, E cores: 1.5 to 3.1 GHz) and single-core (P cores: 4.2 to 4.5 GHz, E cores: 1.5 to 3.3 GHz) benchmarks are high. The clock speeds are reduced in battery mode. With our CB15 loop, we were able to confirm the continuous use of the CPU Turbo. The Core i5's benchmark results are slightly above average overall.

DPC Latency

Our standardized Latency Monitor test (web browsing, 4K video playback, Prime95 high load) reveals problematic DPC latencies. With the hardware and software setup at the time of testing, the system appears to be unsuitable for real-time audio and video editing. Future software updates may improve or worsen the issue.

Storage Solution

Gigabyte equips the laptop with its own PCIe-4 SSD (1 TB, M.2-2280), which achieves excellent transfer rates. Unfortunately, the drive suffers from thermal throttling despite the metal cooling sheet on the inside of the bottom plate. There is space for a total of two M.2-2280 SSDs (1x PCIe 4.0, 1x PCIe 3.0).

A PCIe-4 SSD serves as the system drive.
