Gigabyte calls it the "world's first AI gaming laptop with Microsoft Azure AI" that can collect usage data, pass it through the Azure cloud platform for analyzing, and then automatically tweak the laptop to optimize performance and battery life. The chassis itself promises dual fans, six heat pipes, and plenty of ventilation for its new GeForce RTX GPU.

Gigabyte has teased its two new flagship models to kick start CES 2019: the Gigabyte Aero 15-Y8 and the Aorus 15 gaming laptop. Both systems will support the same Microsoft Azure AI technology to automatically adjust CPU and GPU wattage to maximize both performance when gaming and power efficiency for other less demanding tasks.

Other than the focus on AI software, not much else is known about the Aorus 15 as we're still waiting on the official specifications sheet. We will likely learn more about the new system during the Gigabyte press briefing scheduled to take place on January 7 at the Las Vegas Caesar's Palace hotel. Until then, the OEM is boasting the following hardware features:

  • Intel Core i7-8750H CPU
  • Nvidia RTX Turing GPU
  • LG IPS display
  • Intel 760p SSD
  • Samsung RAM modules
  • Killer 1550 WLAN
  • 25 mm thickness
  • 2 system fans, 6 heat pipes, and 7 sets of ventilation grilles

We'll be updating this page with hands-on time and images on the new Aorus 15 in the coming days.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
