Is this an 8th gen or does something like this not expected to come out like that? I like the battery and larger storage while maintaining portability. Thank you. I appreciated the thoroughness of your video and subbed.

Is it possible to undervolt the cpu and gpu? I would never consider high 80s to 90s Celsius to be good. No matter how "thin" or "light" this laptop may be.

I want this laptop with a 1080 and 120htz display. Only then will it be 100% perfect!

Great review! I have the Gigabyte Aero 15X (15X-BK4) and I did NOT get the power adapter with a USB plug. So, I am just wondering if you would be so kind and reply with the Model# of your power adapter Gigabyte provided you. Just so I can look into purchasing it if need be down the line. Thanks! Please Note: My model#: ADP-200FB D (Manufacturer - Delta Electronics)

Where the hell can anyone buy this laptop? Ive been tracking it for months on newegg, amazon and the sites that they have linked on the official gigabyte site and they have all been out of stock for months!

They're redoing it and addressing some of the complaints people had with it (no 4k) (only 60 Hz). Its expected to release in late March/early April.

Talons Tech Talk (3 months ago)
Great review man. My only gripe with this laptop and what has kept me from purchasing it is the 60Hz IPS screen. As a “gaming” laptop the screen is almost as important as the GPU and CPU, maybe more important. I’ve owned at least a dozen different gaming laptops and until only recently this was my biggest issue. Most IPS laptop screens have terrible 25-30ms response times and while they look great for desktop use, gaming with that response time and 60Hz refresh rate is ughhhh. This laptop needs an option for a 120hz 5ms TN panel that is available on a lot of current gaming laptops. I am using the exact AUO 5ms 120hz TN panel on my 1070/6700K laptop and it’s a dream. It looks and feels just like my desktop 144hz. It’s also extremely bright for a laptop at 400nit. Most laptops are in the 200-300nit range. Brightness also seems to be a complaint I see a lot and at 400nit you have very little room to complain.

Can I game on a Xeon x5650 with a gtx 970 4gb and if I get a X5650 for only 40$ canadian is that a solid deal?

Kadablo are you human ? You ask like a monkey
major wow (3 months ago)
Kadablo it's just a way of expressing laughter. Also I don't know much at all about the differences between Xeon models, I was just saying no one knows how demanding future games will be. But if it's as powerful as a Ryzen CPU then it should be fine for quite a while.
Kadablo (3 months ago)
Why you always add ''haha''?
Sam Henden (3 months ago)
since it is still more powerful than a 4/8 r5 1400, and nearly as powerful as a 1600 it will probably be relevant for a while haha
major wow (3 months ago)
Kadablo it means “I don’t know” but really no one knows. If it works fine now, it’ll probably work fine for a few years.

Alexander Mustermann (3 months ago)
Aero 15 is amazing honestly, even the last year's version. But too pricey for me, so I went with an Asus ROG 15 Inch. Other than the one-of-a-kind battery life on the Gigabyte, the Asus has it all albeit at a bit beefier size. 16 GB DDR4 Ram, i7 7700hq, full fat GTX 1070, 256 GB NVMe Drive + 1 TB HDD, and a GORGEOUS 120 Hz GSYNC IPS Panel. + Amazing price/performance which I never hoped to see on an Asus ROG device lol. The model I use is the asus rog gl502vs.

Daffa Akbar you're welcome!
Daffa Akbar (1 month ago)
thankss. cheers man
Alexander Mustermann (1 month ago)
Daffa Akbar I'd take the Asus over the MSI because the MSIs are extremely loud under load and throttle because of overheating. One cannot fool physics, the heat has to go somewhere and there isn't enough room for cooling in the tiny MSI chassis.
Alexander Mustermann (1 month ago)
Sana Banana somehow I didn't get notification of your comment :/ The fans are very quiet and the temperatures are good considering the hardware. You can also tune the fan profile manually. 3D mark shows desktop 1070 performance, so far very happy with gaming on it :)
Daffa Akbar (1 month ago)
thanks man. another one, the asus gl502vs or the MSI ge63vr 7rf?

Microcenter: Dell 15.6" 7577 i7 7700hq, 16gb DDR4, GTX 1060 6GB (MAX-Q), 256gb nvme, 1 tb hdd for $999 bought on sale. This thing is overpriced.
Frode Bergeton Nilsen (1 month ago)
Sure it is. But if you want what it offers, the 7577 is simply no replacement for it. The Dell is far bigger, the battery is about half, and the screen is seriously sluggish. This is actually a portable, the Dell is simply not.

Very slick laptop but a 60hz 1080p screen is a mistake for a Gtx 1070
Muhammad Muneeb (2 months ago)
Victor Gonza Its perfectly fine as laptop become obsolete faster than desktop (upgradable). This option will be beneficial in future games
Andrew Slader (3 months ago)
Basically performs the same as a 1060 but they market it as a 1070 and do you know what that means? They can charge 300$ more than a 1060 laptop because it has a 7 after a 10 and before a 0

이진민 Acer predator helios 300. Don’t trust online benchmarks I benchmarked it myself and it blows the ones on the internet out of the water
이진민 (3 months ago)
Egg McMuffin which laptop do u use? There us no thermal throttling? Nor less performance compared to the fe edition? Pray tell me which laptop u use so i can check the benchmarks.
Andrew Slader (3 months ago)
이진민 I know I have a 1060 laptop it does run hot but the difference between the two cards are very minimal, in fact not even noticeable also the 1060 6gb laptop variant performs the same
이진민 (3 months ago)
Egg McMuffin ive checked many benchmarks, the gtx 1070 max q perfomes similarly with a desktop gtx 1060. A non max q laptop gtx 1060 loses about 10 - 15 percent of performance from the desktop variant and has uncomfortable thermals with continous thermal throttling. So consider those.

As for the touchpad, usually notebooks have a key combination to disable the touchpad, doesn't this one include such? (like fn+F3 in my shit old lg e500 notebook), tho i prefer the touch to keep itself active and disabling it by hand if I feel like doing so.

the perfect laptop for that price with 120 hz or 1440p or a glass screen ips?
charlie brownau (3 months ago)
Gday I found that gaming laptops are often 3 times the price for 1/3rd the performance and often you are just better off buying an laptop for USD$250-450 and gaming PC for USD$600-1300 instead of an USD$2000 laptop
KingOfMadCows (3 months ago)
Gaming laptops could be worth it for people who travel a lot. If you're out of your home for 3 or more months a year, it's probably worth it to get a mid range gaming laptop. But prices increase by a lot once you go above a GTX 1060.
aldo arip (3 months ago)
1070 Max Q is basically another name for 1070M.
Buff Barnaby (3 months ago)
Redemz (3 months ago)
overclocking would literally kill the point of the laptop. just buy a normal 1070 laptop.
Ben Willock (3 months ago)
Yeah its 1060 level performance but its the way it reaches that performance that's different than the old M series, instead of just having a cut-down GPU with less cores, it instead has the same or more cores but runs it at a lower power profile; I think that's why they like to distinguish between Max-Q and M series, because it enables that level of performance but with lower thermals and noise compared to M series GPUs of the past.
aldo arip (3 months ago)
The performance says it's a 1060. It would be good if you could overclock it so that it get the same performance with the usual 1070 on laptop, but if it can't be done then it is a 1070M a.k.a 1060.
cl4ster17 (3 months ago)
Not exactly. It's a heavily binned and underclocked 1070 Mobile (16 SMs vs 15 SMs on Desktop 1070). MaxQ specification also has noise restrictions.
