Reviews for the Gigabyte Sabre 15K-DE022T

90% Gigabyte Sabre 15 Review
Source: Toptenreviews English
With an RRP of $1,899, the Sabre 15 manages to undercut its competition by about $200 for a near identical setup, which is an exciting prospect for a price-conscious market. A battery life of 2 hours and 53 minutes in PCMark 8’s Home battery benchmark, reasonable 86°C max CPU temperatures, acceptable-quality stereo speakers and ample connectivity options means that, at this price, we are at a loss to fault this unit.

70% Gigabyte Sabre 15-K review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Gigabyte Sabre 15-K is fast in applications and games, and its screen is better than the Dell Inspiron – but it doesn’t offer enough when it comes to ergonomics, storage and battery life to triumph over its key rival. Regardless, it remains a good choice if screen quality is a priority.

Model: These days gaming notebooks tend to bounce between over the top designs and actual take home units with the Gigabyte Sabre 15K falling towards the latter category. While the Gigabyte Sabre 15K is squarely aimed at budget users there is absolutely nothing budget about it when it comes to gaming notebooks. Starting with its design Gigabyte has chosen to go down the slim and subtle design. Its thin matte aluminium chassis sure looks and feels premium to the touch. Spec-wise the Gigabyte Sabre 15K offers some decent hardware with its Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor, 16 GB of RAM and an Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050 Ti graphics unit which should able to handle most games on high settings. Because of Gigabyte’s GPU choice this actually makes the Sabre 15K very affordable. Going along to its display the Sabre 15K is equipped with a FHD IPS panel which allows for a wider viewing angle while still delivering a vibrant viewing experience, it still makes one wonder whether the budget title attached to it holds water since usually manufacturers would resort to choosing a cheaper TN panel instead. Despite it being an IPS panel, sRGB ratings are sort of mediocre at only 55%, which is not to say it’s bad if you don’t do content creation on this notebook.

As for the audio department the Sabre 15K sports a standard stereo setup minus a subwoofer which really isnt bad since audio quality remains decent especially with the inclusion of Creative’s Sound Blaster Cinema 3 audio app. In terms of user input Gigabyte has made sure that it is packed with features, starting with the inclusion of a numpad and a software solution called Flexikey which allows macro recording and hotkey configuration. The keyboard is also RGB backlit and with the use of the included Flexikey software users can also adjust its color settings. While the keyboard is loaded with features the included trackpad is pretty generic apart from feeling soft and comfortable but that’s to be expected. Lastly as a special mention Gigabyte has pre-bundled a copy of XSplit Broadcaster and Gamecaster for gamers out there who frequently stream. Overall, Gigabyte was able to balance which features to cut and which features to bolster without taking away from the whole experience which is good considering their experience in the market.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 965M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» 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.

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

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).

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
