Gigabyte P25 Series

Gigabyte P25X v2

The Gigabyte P25W is one of the latest portable gaming rigs to hit the market. This laptop is 15 inches, which does mean less power than the 17 inch gaming counterparts, but it also means a huge boost in portability. However, as can be expected in most gaming rigs, this machine weighs in at 2.8 kg. Available in sleek black or sports car yellow, little details like a fancy exhaust pipe inspired design have been added for heat ventilation. The rest of the body is quite minimalist. Under the hood, good speed can be had from the Haswell Intel Core i7 4700MQ processor which is clocked at 2.4GHz that can boost up to 3.4GHz. This is paired with 8 GB of RAM. For graphics, the Nvidia Geforce GTX 770M with 3GB of memory should run the show very ably. Most games should run at high settings with the most demanding games requiring lowered settings.

For storage, Gigabyte have cleverly allowed users to choose between several variations of SSD and HDD combinations, or to go all in with SSD. The Haswell architecture of the processor means improved battery life, but improved is still a short amount of time in an energy hungry machine like this. The Gigabyte P25W battery will last approximate 2 hours and 30 minutes of use before it begs users to plug it in. A Blu-ray drive is included in the hardware with writing capabilities, and the keyboard has a simple adjustable backlight. The 15 inch LED screen may be a letdown for those looking for an IPS screen. Overall, this is a good gaming rig that will fit within a tighter budget.

Gigabyte P25W

A a reliable and powerful laptop is a dream for enthusiast gamers. The specification should be top tier in order to satisfy the desire of PC gamers. The Gigabyte P25W perfectly falls into this category. The Core i7 laptop with its advanced specs and features is expected to compete with gaming laptops which have been available in the market for a long time. With a bright-yellow top, it simply looks great and eye-catching. This 15.6 inch gaming laptop supports Full HD resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. The display is gorgeous for any use such as gaming, browsing and even watching movies. For audio quality, Gigabyte P25W equipped it with 4 pieces of 1.5 Watt speakers and 1 subwoofer, which produce good sound quality. Air holes located on the sides and bottom of the notebook enable it to dissipate heat optimally. An Nvidia GeForce GTX 770M with 3 GB GDDR5 ensures solid graphics capabilities. Combined with Intel 4th generation Core i7, this gaming laptop performs really well and is able to meet expectations of fans.

With up to six hours of battery life, portability should not be an issue, although most users will prefer to use it as a desktop replacement. Besides, P25W comes with a Blu-ray optical drive, three storage bays, and a backlit keyboard. In many ways, it looks like a perfect gaming laptop and it is easily one of the most promising gaming laptop in the market today.

80% Review Gigabyte P25W Notebook | Notebookcheck
Showing true colors. Gaming laptops not only stand out through enormous power; they also want to win over the hearts of gamers with a daring design. Gigabyte also follows this path with its P25W, and creates a gaming machine with a bright yellow surface along with a metallic wrist rest. Does courage plus power add up to perfection?

The Gigabyte P25 measures 39x26x4.5cm, the last figure at the back which narrows to only 1cm at the front, it weights a mighty 2.74kilos. Certainly a unit to be considered as a Desktop replacement, it is large and heavy and for me anyway does not sit comfortably on the lap. It is however very fast and powerful. One feature I have not come across previously a yellow lid.

If you're after a gaming PC but your budget won't stretch to the likes of the MSI GX60, then you could do worse than take a look at the Gigabyte P25. It's certainly had more thought put into the design than the similarly-priced Schenker XMG P503, otherwise there's not really much else out there that can compete.

We've gone over the hard numbers of the P25W and seen some interesting results. But as with everything, it's not all about the hard figures. Over the review, I've found that there's a lot to love about the P25W. But also, there's some stuff that's not so great. The GIGABYTE P25W is an excellent choice for a gaming machine, though it's a bit on the costly side. The system is available through Amazon for $1849 at the time of writing.

While it lacks the luxurious extras of the competition, the Gigabyte P25W has impressed us nonetheless. It combines great under the hood performance with decent design, and is a great compromise for those who want a laptop capable of holding its own in modern games without the pricetag that often accompanies it. You’ll need to be comfortable with the striking yellow lid, but apart from that this laptop is proof of how far Gigabyte’s notebook division has come in recent years and well worth a look.

The Gigabyte P25W is strong in so many areas that you'd almost forgotten the stark-yellow lid, hadn't you? There's enough performance here to power today's latest games, and Gigabyte has paired the high-end CPU and GPU components with three storage bays, an enjoyable 1080p display, Blu-ray optics, and a comfortable, backlit keyboard.

Character actor. While most notebook companies rely at most on the GeForce GTX 870M for their 15-inch department, Gigabyte uses Nvidia's top model for the P25X v2. Also the other features (Blu-ray burner, mSATA-SSDs...) clearly point to a high-end product. In this review you will see whether the device is worth its 2,000 Euros (~$2627).

Gigabyte has put a lot of good stuff into this laptop, but apparently forgotten to make it just as good on the outside. Its design is downright frustrating at times, with the keyboard, touchpad, and lip around the chassis being the major culprits. They aren’t design choices that are appropriate for a laptop with a price tag north of $2500 as they provide an overall uncomfortable user experience.

Thanks to its beefy Core i7 GPU and GTX 880M GPU, the Gigabyte P25X v2 is one of the most powerful gaming notebooks we've ever tested. Games look vivid on the P25's 1080p display, and the laptop's stylish, sports car-esque design turns heads. What Gigabyte offers in style and power, however, it sacrifices in portability.

The Gigabyte P25X v2 is undeniably a powerful beast. The design doesn't quite have the wow factor of an Alienware or Razer gaming laptop, but then you can pick this one up for under £1,500. Considering just how powerful it is, and the fact that it's not completely deskbound, then this starts to look like a very good deal indeed. If you're looking for a power portable, the Gigabyte P25X v2 gives you a lot for your money.

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.

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.
