Gigabyte sells gaming notebooks under its own branding in addition to its high-end Aorus series. The Taiwanese manufacturer revealed two new mainstream gaming notebooks at CES this year in the form of the Sabre 15 and Aero 14 with more refreshes of the existing P series. All new models should be available to buy within the next few months.

Gigabyte P56

The P56 is the most powerful new Gigabyte model and it sits between the P55 and P57 in terms of size. The 15.6-inch notebook will ship with FHD and UHD display options and come standard with the Core i7-7700HQ, Nvidia GTX 1070 GPU, and even Thunderbolt 3. The latter should enable support for external graphics docks including those from Gigabyte. The individually-lit RGB keys appear to be lifted directly from the Aorus series and the front-loading optical drive is another feature that gamers will either appreciate or disregard.

Gigabyte Sabre 15

The 15.6-inch Sabre 15 is the more entry-level model for cost-conscious buyers not unlike the Lenovo Legion Y520, Acer Aspire VX, or the new Dell Inspiron 15. The Sabre 15 ships with a 1080p screen, Kaby Lake CPU, and either a GeForce GTX 1050 or 1050 Ti. The keyboard offers a deep 2.2 mm travel with an optional RGB backlight.

Gigabyte Aero 14

The new and colorful Aero 14 was revealed back in Computex 2016 and will now be available with Pascal options up to the GTX 1060 and an integrated HDMI 2.0 port. The 14-inch display can be either FHD or QHD with a total weight of just 1.89 kg despite the very large 92.24 Wh internal battery. Expect this notebook to be available online as early as June.

Gigabyte P34 and P35

The existing P34 and P35 will be refreshed for 2017 to include Kaby Lake and Pascal processors. The 14-inch P34 will weigh just 1.69 kg and is expected to be the lightest 14-inch gaming notebook with the GTX 1050 Ti GPU. According to the manufacturer, the notebook is actually marginally lighter than the outgoing Skylake generation of the same chassis.

Lastly, the P35 is expected to be the thinnest 15.6-inch gaming notebook with the GTX 1070 GPU at just 20.9 mm and one of the lightest at 2.3 kg.

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.
