The 17.3-inch P57 now features GeForce GTX 1070 graphics, while the smaller P55 has a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics adapter under the hood.

Another major laptop maker that announces its NVIDIA Pascal-powered gaming laptops is GIGABYTE. The gaming-centric P55 & P57 series now come with GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 graphics, M.2 PCIe SSDs, USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity, as well as HDMI 2.0.

The 15.6-inch GIGABYTE P55 comes with a full HD or a 3K IPS display, a Skylake Intel Core i7 processor, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics adapter, as well as a premium backlit keyboard with 2.2 mm key travel distance, "with snappy yet responsive feedback for effortless long-hour usage." 

The 17.3-inch GIGABYTE P57 will only hit the market with a full HD IPS display, but it can be purchased with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or GTX 1070. It will also come with a Skylake Intel Core i7 processor, as well as a backlit keyboard with 30-key rollover anti-ghosting.

Both gaming notebooks mentioned above come with a 3-month XSplit Gamecaster and Broadcaster premium license. Unfortunately, there is no information on the processor choices available, pricing, and launch dates (according to GIGABYTE, they are coming "this fall"), but we will keep you posted as usual.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
