Reviews for the Gigabyte P56XT

82.8% Gigabyte P56XT (7700HQ, GTX 1070, Full HD) Laptop | Notebookcheck
A wild ride. After the successful Aero 15, Gigabyte has now provided us with another 15-inch notebook aimed at the gaming and multimedia sector. The P56XT is equipped with a Core i7-7700HQ and a GeForce GTX 1070. Will this configuration be enough for pole position? We shall find out in our detailed review. Update: Higher rating thanks to second test model
Gigabyte P56XT Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English
The Gigabyte P56XT has a lot of good things going for it. This desktop replacement has the gaming performance to match its similarly-priced competition, namely the Alienware 15 R3, and a unique feature set. One of its biggest selling points is its per-key RGB backlit keyboard, something that’s still uncommon on gaming notebooks. The P56XT also features a swappable optical drive bay, which you can use to fit a second 2.5-inch storage drive. In total, this notebook can accommodate up to four storage drives (two M.2 SSDs and two 2.5-inch drives). We couldn’t find a competitor that offered more storage expansion capability.

Like other laptops with Nvidia's GTX 1070 rather than 1080 graphics, the Gigabyte P56XT is iffy for gaming at UHD rather than full HD resolution, but a solid choice for work at 4K and play at 1080p.

Gigabyte P56XT – Review
Source: Hardwareheaven English
The latest Gigabyte machine has good benchmark pace and its newer processor and faster SSD help it sneak ahead of the Medion when it comes to real-world performance, but that’s the only area where this machine takes a convincing lead.

The Gigabyte P56XT is a little quicker than its HP rival, and it’s solidly built – but it has a few issues. With a screen and battery life that are both middling, average ergonomics and heat issues, the HP offers a larger and superior device.

Obviously quite tricky to provide you with a comparison for this system. It’s the first we’ve tested using our revised and improved benchmarking suite. Of course, the numbers do speak for themselves, and it’s not hard to see that the P56XT is a powerful notebook that’s sure to fit your gaming needs.

Comment

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. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » 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.  
7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.
