Aorus 7 KB in review: Well-rounded gaming laptop with upgrade options
With the Aorus 7 KB, Gigabyte delivers a 17.3-inch gaming laptop that brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the matte screen (Full HD, IPS, 144 Hz). The device offers space for up to three storage devices.

With the Aorus 7 KB, Gigabyte puts a 17.3-inch gaming laptop on the market that is based on a barebone from Clevo. We already got to know this barebone when we reviewed the Nexoc GH7 716IG, an identically constructed model. You will look in vain for high-quality case materials here. The chassis is made of black plastic. The design is also sober.

The laptop has a Core i7-10750H hexa-core processor (Comet Lake) on board that provides enough computing power for all common application areas. In combination with the dedicated GeForce RTX 2060 graphics core, it brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the screen. High to maximum quality settings can always be selected here. 

The laptop is only equipped with a 512 GB NVMe SSD - quite little for a gaming laptop. Storage space can be expanded, though. A total of two M.2 slots (1x NVMe/SATA, 1x NVMe) are available; they can accommodate SSDs in the 2280 format. If both slots are equipped with NVMe SSDs, these could form a RAID 0 or RAID 1 array if required. There's also room for a 2.5-inch storage drive. The mounting frame and SATA slot are available.

The Full HD display (IPS, 144 Hz) offers stable viewing angles, a matte surface, quick response times, decent color-space coverage, and great color reproduction. But the maximum brightness and contrast should be higher. Battery life is okay, but it's no cause for enthusiasm. The relatively small-capacity battery (49 Wh) becomes noticeable here.

More information and many benchmark results can be found in our review of the Aorus 7 KB.

What started as a side job during my computer science studies later became my main job: For more than 20 years now I have been working as an editor and author in the IT sector. While working in the print sector I also contributed to the creation of various loose-leaf publications and published original written pieces. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2012.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
