The mid-range 15.6-inch gaming notebook will be coming soon with GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti options and a Core i7-7700HQ CPU.

Unveiled at CES 2017, the Sabre 15 is Gigabyte's entry-level solution for the mainstream gamer on a budget. Its design is not unlike the existing Gigabyte P57 or P37 series but with updated Kaby Lake and Pascal hardware. Specifications include:

The keyboard keys have a deep travel of 2 mm compared to 1.6 mm or shorter on many Ultrabooks. New to the series is the optional multi-zone RGB backlight whereas some higher-end Aorus models come standard with individually-lit RGB keys.

The GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti are very powerful cards even though they are considered mid-tier. Our own benchmarks show them to be in range of the previous generation GTX 960M/965M and GTX 970M, respectively, in terms of gaming performance.

Despite this second announcement, Gigabyte has yet to announce starting prices for the Sabre 15 and our own sources have yet to have any SKUs in stock. The Sabre 15 competes with the Pavilion 15, Lenovo Yoga 720, Asus GL553VD, and even the XPS 15 9560 as all are 15.6-inch notebooks with similar CPU and GPU options.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
