What Gigabyte is offering here is an uber-thin portable gaming device, but this compactness comes at the price of excessive overheating, leading to lots of whirring fans and a noise like a hairdryer. The laptop performs excellently and can deal with any game, but this is not enough to overcome slight flaws in design.

If you're after a slick, thin, large and powerful gaming laptop that's not too over the top in the looks department, Gigabyte's P37X is the machine for you, even though it's pretty pricey and chomps through battery life faster than you'll be able to finish your games. Still, with plenty of firepower, you'll be conquering your favourite games as long as there's a power plug handy.

The Gigabyte P37X promises a system that can play demanding PC games on the go, and mostly delivers. While I was reviewing the P37X, I had to grapple with a lot of small irritants: an off-center keyboard, unimpressive speakers, a monitor that should have been colorful and a noisy fan. However, this system delivers excellent frame rates and performance, and ultimately, these are more important factors.

The Gigabyte P37X is a super-powered gaming laptop that’s a lot slimmer and a bit lighter than the rest, while still offering the same grade specs as much larger machines. It doesn’t have the juvenile style of the brasher gaming laptops, so if that’s your bag, step right up.

The P37X is simultaneously massive yet tiny. In terms of the length and width, it’s a whopper thanks to the large 17.3 inch display, yet it measures a tiny 22.5mm deep. Most gaming laptops with a screen of this size tip the scales well in excess of three or four kilograms, but Gigabyte has trimmed the fat to lower the weight to just 2.7kg (add another hundred grams if you included the optical drive). This makes it surprisingly portable for such a behemoth, proving that road warriors needn’t totally compromise mobility for performance.

The Gigabyte P37X is built for gaming speed, based on a large 17-inch display chassis but in a thinner than traditional case. With the help of the best single-chip mobile graphics processor currently on the market it can play any game you want, up to very high rendering quality. It may not stand out in style but it gets the job done, albeit at a high price.

The P37X is Gigabyte's most ambitious gaming laptop to date. Cramming a quad-core Intel processor and Nvidia's fastest mobile GPU into a chassis that's less than 23mm thick is no small feat, yet Gigabyte has still found room for 16GB of memory, two SSDs, a hard disk and an optical drive. An impressive array of hardware for a thin gaming laptop, but inevitable compromises have been made.

Starting with the build quality of the P37X we have a system which immediately feels well built as we unbox it. The metal chassis feels solid and we like the minimal branding and curved edges. The parts used by Gigabyte for the key components are all from quality brands and little touches like adding in an ambient light sensor for the keyboard LEDs help elevate this aspect to a higher level.

Without the kind of powerful, high-end components that come with a high-end gaming laptop like the P37X, you won't be able to play at full resolution or enjoy most up-to-date gaming titles with a constant 60 fps frame rate. It's these high-end components that quickly suck a laptop battery dry, plus they output considerable heat that requires heavy-duty cooling, not to mention driving up the cost.

Gigabyte's P37W v4 is one of the fastest laptops we've had the pleasure of using, and its battery life isn't as bad as we were expecting from a gaming laptop. It is ridiculously expensive though at around £1,450, and the keyboard and trackould be a whole lot better. Still, in its class of 17.3-inch laptops, it's one of the best.

Overall there’s a lot to like about the P37W. It carries on Gigabyte’s good run of gaming-focussed laptops, with battery life being particularly impressive, and it’s no slouch when it comes to performance either. We marginally prefer the build quality of the Asus G571JT, but you really can’t go wrong with either.

The Gigabyte P37x v4 has a few flaws compared to other gaming notebooks, but the machine’s upsides easily outweigh them. The keyboard’s off center placement is a bit awkward, the fan is noisy and the matte display doesn’t quite offer the same color contrast that we’d like from a gaming device. But that does little to mar P37x’s potent combo of performance and portability that few laptops on the market can match, especially at the $2,200 price tag. If you’re looking for strong performance on the go then the Gigabyte P37x is an excellent option.

This looks familiar… Gigabyte hasn’t wasted any time reworking their P35X, now suffixed with “v5” so as to indicate that this is merely an iterative update. Given that, can the conservative revisions to the $2,300 P35X v5 preserve its relevance in the gaming market?

The P35Xv5 scored 80% in the sRGB test, which means colours are reasonably accurate. It’s by no means a professionally calibrated display, so if you’re a photo or video editor who requires colour accuracy then you might want to give this one a miss – but it’s definitely good enough for most uses. Overall I’m impressed by the display quality. Watching movies, playing games and browsing the web all look great on the P35Xv5.

Probably not. The design of the P35Xv5 is both it’s selling point and Achilles heel. Yes, it’s relatively thin and light, but looks-wise it's dull, it's poorly made – and if you’d just spent £1,600 on a new notebook then I can guarantee that you'd be disappointed on seeing the P35Xv5 for the first time. However, beneath all the cheap plastic is a solid gaming notebook with an excellent screen. Opting for the top-end 980M alongside the Skylake i7 and 16GB DDR4 RAM provides great performance, and you’ll have no trouble maintaining 60fps in modern games at Full HD.

The Gigabyte P35X v5 looks the part of an unassuming 15-inch laptop with a thin chassis, but underneath all its plainness is one of the most powerful gaming machines we've reviewed thus far. Having a full 8GB of video RAM on Nvidia's top end mobile graphics chip shows just how close we are to 4K gaming on a mobile platform. And when you don't need all the high-resolution detail, this machine can absolutely destroy games at lower settings.

70% Oodles of gaming power and battery life in a portable package
Source: PC Advisor English
As Intel’s CPUs let even gaming beasts like the Gigabyte P35X v5 creep into battery life territory that almost makes them viable as roving productivity machines, every big of extra portability becomes more valuable. Sure enough, this is one of the most portable machines to feature a GTX 980M graphics card. The problem is that if being able to lug the Gigabyte P35X V5 around conveniently isn’t a major concern, this wouldn't be our top pick. Performance is great, the screen is fine and there are plenty of connections. But fairly noisy fans and better touchpad/keyboard combos available from Alienware and Asus make it drop down our most-wanted list a little way. Still, if portability and sober looks appeal, it deserves a place on your shortlist.

Gigabyte P57W-CF1

The Gigabyte P57W-CF1 is a large 17.3 inch gaming notebook featuring an Intel "Skylake" Core i7 quad processor, which was launched September 2015. In addition to four CPU cores with Hyper-Threading clocked at 2.6 - 3.5 GHz, the chip also integrates an HD Graphics 530 GPU and a dual-channel DDR4-2133/DDR3L-1600 memory controller. The P57W-CF1 is equipped an Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M graphics adapter, which is the second fastest high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled anti-aliasing. In terms of connectivity, the left side of the P57W-CF1 houses a lock slot, an Ethernet port, two USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader, and separate microphone and headphone jacks. The rest of the ports are on the right side: a USB 3.0 port, a USB 3.1 Type C port, an HDMI 2.0 port, a mini-DisplayPort, a legacy VGA port and the power-in. Only the two fan exhausts occupy the back. On the front, the P57W has a hot-swap bay. The display has a Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), which is ideal for a gaming notebook. Its anti-glare (matte) coating is helpful in situations where there is ambient or CCFL overhead lighting, since it eliminates glare. Color saturation and contrast are high for gaming, multimedia, and general usage. The viewing angles are 178 degrees, which means that you don't have to worry about a distorted picture if you look at the display from an off-angle. Storage for this model is split into a smaller 256 GB M.2 SSD for the operating system and a secondary 1 TB 7200 RPM Hitachi hard drive for storage. With this kind of setup, you can install programs on the SSD, and map documents, pictures, and other media to the hard drive. This is a best-of-both-worlds approach to storage. The storage can be further expanded using the hot-swap bay. Using the included storage drive adapter, another 2.5-inch storage drive can be fitted in.

While I might bemoan the P57W's utter lack of style, when it comes to playing games on the go, does it really matter how many flashing lights are on your laptop?

The P57W’s sub-one inch thin chassis is impressive, as is its 6.4 pound carry weight. Its all plastic build probably helped keep the weight in check. That’s actually one of our complaints; we’d like to see some use of aluminum, or at least rubberized surfaces at this price point. As it stands, the look and feel of this notebook is borderline generic. It furthermore lacks a customizable LED lighting system, as is offered on some competing gaming notebooks from Asus and Alienware. The keyboard is another area where the P57W could use improvement. There’s just not enough feel, though it does have a good layout, and is comfortable for long typing sessions. Last on our list of complains is the display’s lack of Nvidia G-Sync support, which is starting to become a more popular feature on gaming notebooks.

The P35W V5 tries to deliver a mobile 4K gaming experience, but its lesser price and components mean it doesn't quite manage. It's decent in most other departments, but rivals offer more balanced specifications inside better-looking machines – sometimes for far more cash, but sometimes only for £50 (around $66/AUS$87) more. The P35W v5 is a reasonable laptop, but it doesn't do enough to stand out.

Focused on the essentials. Gigabyte's newest version of ttheir P55W hasn't really changed that much. While the predecessor used a GeForce GTX 970M, the new model is equipped with a GTX 1060 - and that's a very noticeable difference.

The biggest knock you could levy against the Gigabyte P55W v6 is that it’s relatively weak against its peers. But that’s comparing the laptop against some of the most powerful mobile devices on the market. As can be seen from the benchmark scores and strong in-game testing the P55W v6 is still a very powerful machine, capable of running most apps with ease.

GIGABYTE P55W v6 Review
Source: Vortez English
By this notebook adopting understated aesthetics, those who prefer a simplistic and discreet theme will favour the design which has been implemented. It’s quite unusual to see a gaming notebook lack an aggressive, bulky approach and also see an absence of flashy LEDs. Although the design does look classy, the construction of P55W V6 bears lots of plastic – including the lid. We’d like to have seen some brushed metal being used on such a product.

When it comes to gaming laptops, most of us are living under pretty solid budget constraints that dictate what kind of specs we can expect. However, Gigabyte's P55W v6 is a prime example showing that you don't have to break the bank to get a good gaming notebook. For $1,599, you get a VR-ready system that delivers very good frame rates and can multitask like a champ.

if you liked the look of the P35X v5 but found yourself sitting on the fence awaiting a new GPU, the refreshed v6 model offers everything that's good about the original plus an extra chunk of graphics muscle.

Those who prioritise performance over all else won’t be disappointed by the P35x v6, with the 4K screen an excellent bonus – but it does suffer some niggling issues. Despite these, however, it remains a powerful 4K contender.

The Gigabyte is an awkward laptop. In many areas it’s superb: its games performance is top-tier, the rest of its specification is powerful, and the screen is impressive in both resolution and benchmarks.

Gigabyte’s monster P35X V6 gaming laptop reviewed: Simply astounding

This is the best-performing gaming laptop we've ever seen, and the fact that it's still thin and light and costs less than R40k to boot leaves our jaws on the floor.

As far as thin and light gaming notebooks go, the Gigabyte P35X v6 is a solid package. Visually, it isn’t a whole lot to look at, but that’s part of the draw for this line: It doesn’t scream “gamer.” Its build quality is quite solid, as is the overall level of quality. We found it had very few drawbacks outside of heat and noise.

The P37X is finally a viable 4K gaming machine, thanks to an upgrade to Nvidia’s GTX 1070, and it manages to be thinner than its predecessor in the process.

As more and more VR ready laptops hit the market, it’s great to see the vast array of choices available, from the most garish to the unassuming. The GIGABYTE P37 is definitely in the latter category, but that’s not at all a bad thing.

In summary, we find the Gigabyte P37X v6 packs a surprising amount of features, expandability, and performance into a slim 17.3-inch chassis. If its tame looks do the trick for you and your budget permits, it’s a sensible Pascal pick.

Whether the Gigabyte P37x v6 is right for you depends on what type of gamer you are. If you can live without external bells and whistles, if you crave a 4K display, and if you like the idea of above-average portability and battery life, it's a fine way to go. But if raw performance is more your thing, and you want to save money and get a snazzier design as part of the bargain, the MSI GT62VR Dominator Pro-005 earns its Editors' Choice status, and also gives you more memory (if less storage) while costing $500 less. Wherever you fall on this spectrum, though, either laptop is a strong pick that will ensure you're gaming happily for years to come.

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.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M:

Fast high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M:

Second fastest high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M: Lower high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell chip GM204 and GM206 (newer 2016 version with higher clock rates). Part of the GeForce GTX 900M series.These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (Laptop): Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

4720HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.5700HQ: Broadwell-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5600 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

2.3 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.95 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


76.08%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
