CES 2019 | Upcoming Aorus 15 laptop looks to be the full design refresh we've been waiting for
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.
