CES 2015 | The Gigabyte P37X is the world's lightest 17.3-inch gaming laptop
The Gigabyte P37X is a 17.3-inch gaming notebook that bridges together thinness and portability with ultimate processing power. The body measures just 22.5mm around the waist, an impressive feat given all of the internal hardware that the Gigabyte P37X has to offer. Interestingly, although the manufacturer said that the P37X will be the world's lightest notebook, the company has yet to announce an exact weight.
Although the P37X is thin by any notebook standard, hardcore gamers will find that it has enough muscle to pull through any modern game at maximum graphics detail. Although the manufacturer did not mention what CPU the P37X will use (we're hoping to see some Core i7 version from Intel's Broadwell generation), Gigabyte mentioned that the P37X will come with an Nvidia GTX 980M graphics chip, the fastest notebook GPU at this moment.
The 17.3-inch display runs a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, and these gaming notebooks from Gigabyte also make use of the Dolby Digital Plus Home Theatre sound technology and a stereo subwoofer. Other specs include up to 8GB of RAM, up to a pair of 512GB mSATA SSD units, up to a pair of 2TB HDD hard drives, and Gigabyte's Supra-cool thermal cooling technology.
The Gigabyte P37X is set for release this February at a price that ranges between $2099 and $2299 depending on the exact configuration. The P37W will cost between $1749 and $1999, while the P37K will be priced between $1149 and $1349.
Alongside the new P37 notebooks, Gigabyte also unveiled smaller gaming laptops in its premium P range, such as the 15.6-inch P35X, or the 14-inch P34W.
