CES 2021 | The Gigabyte Aorus 17G gets a Tiger Lake refresh along with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080
Gigabyte has launched a new range of gaming laptops under its Aorus brand. The Gigabyte Aorus 17G is the proverbial king of the hill, with its top-of-the-line specifications that offer an unparalleled gaming experience. Gigabyte will reveal its price and availability via its social channels on January 26.
As its name somewhat suggests, the Gigabyte Aorus 17G comes with a colossal 17.3-inch screen. It has a resolution of 1,920 x 1,280 pixels and a refresh rate of 300Hz. One shouldn't have a hard time hitting 300 fps in games, as the notebook uses an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card alongside its equally powerful Intel Core i7-11375H processor. Gigabyte will tell us more about other CPU and GPU options at a later date.
If the previous-generation Gigabyte Aorus 17G laptop is anything to go by, we can expect it to support up to 64GB of RAM and 2TB of solid-state storage via an NVMe SSD (Type 2280). As mentioned earlier, Gigabyte has not revealed the laptop's full specifications at this point. Considering that the Gigabyte Aorus 17G aims to offer the best hardware available on the market, we can expect it to come with a Thunderbolt 4.0 port, a mini-Display Port 1.4, and an assortment of USB Type-A and USB Type-C ports.
Another interesting of the Gigabyte Aorus 17G is its fully-mechanical keyboard, complete with Omron switches rated for up to 15 million keypresses. We have seen these switches in several other Gigabyte Aorus notebooks, and they have never failed to impress us. Gigabyte will likely use bump up the Aorus 17G's battery capacity, as both the CPU and GPU are quite power-hungry.
