The Taiwanese electronics firm Gigabyte is ready to launch its newest laptop model called the ‘Aero 15 X’. The highlighting feature of this beast is that it sports an Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics chip. This is Gigabyte’s second Max-Q gaming laptop, after the GTX 1080-equipped Aorus X5 MD , and Gigabyte claims the higher-end GPU should yield about 40% better graphics performance than the original model.
The Gigabyte Aero 15 is one of the thinnest and most powerful 15-inch laptops around, and now it’s getting another uptick in performance with a Max-Q.
Aside from the new Max-Q graphics chip, the Aero 15 X features a 7th generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ processors, 16GB of DDR4 RAM and a 512GB SSD all wrapped up in the same chassis.
It sports a Full HD 1080p LED with X-Rite, Pantone-certificated panel for true and rich colour reproduction.
The other laptops equipped with same chip from Nvidia GTX 1070 are the hybrid professional-gaming laptop like the MSI GS63 VR Stealth Pro and the most well-equipped Dell XPS 15.
Speaking about graphical performance from all other 15-inch gaming laptops, this laptop can be compared with the Asus ROG Zephyrus GX501 and Acer Predator Triton 700 – both Max-Q systems.
Gigabyte has not shared the pricing or a release date, but we’ll update this post with the information as soon as it’s available.
