Even though Gigabyte has the Aorus brand for everything gaming-related, the company still releases the Aero gaming laptop lineup separately. First released in early 2017, the Aero 15 and 15X models remain the thinnest and lightest gaming laptops produced by Gigabyte to date, but the Taiwanese company now wants to make these models even thinner, as teased in a recent video posted on YouTube.
The refreshed Aero 15/15X gaming laptops will become thinner thanks to the inclusion of slimmer bases, bringing the profile thickness down to 0.7 inches. Unfortunately, Gigabyte did not reveal any important hardware specs, so the laptops might still come powered by Intel’s gen 7 Core i7-7700HQ quad-core CPUs coupled with 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and GTX 1060/1070 Max-Q GPUs. However, there is a fair chance that Gigabyte would equip the refreshed models with Intel’s Coffee Lake-H 6-core CPUs, in case the launch date gets pushed to May.
As far as displays are concerned, Gigabyte opted to let users choose between a bezel-less 1080p 144 Hz screen or a 4K panel with 100% AdobeRGB color gamut. Both screens will feature an advanced light sensor, which detects the levels of brightness in the immediate surroundings and automatically adjusts the LED backlight intensity. This can help conserve energy in darker conditions and can boost the brightness in outdoor environments.
Additionally, Gigabyte has replaced last year’s SD card readers with new UHS-II versions that deliver 12x faster read and write speeds on the Aero 15 models. Other new features include a new RGB backlit keyboard with N-key rollover and speakers compatible with the latest Dolby Atmos audio standard.
Gigabyte is expected to reveal more information on the new Aero 15/15X refreshed models on April 3.
