Aorus X7 v6 Notebook Review

 

Soaring High. Gigabyte wants to join the ranks of Acer, Asus, Alienware, Clevo and MSI by producing high-end notebooks. The gaming expert has grown the Aorus brand into a symbol for powerful gaming PCs. We have looked at the X7 v6 and were impressed...

individually illuminated keyboard with macro area ; beautiful, stable and very flat case ; up to 4x RAM und 4x mass storage ; significantly improved touchpad ; high display resolution ; overclocked processor ; very good 3D performance ; G-Sync plus 120...

high noise level in 3D operation ; sensitive case surfaces ; low battery life ; no Thunderbolt ; poor sound ; expensive

First and most important: Gigabyte has not sat on its laurels. The manufacturer has looked at the faults in its previous generation and improved by leaps and bounds with the new X7 v6. The input devices have been reworked and can hold their own against...

Aorus X7 DT v6 Notebook Review

 

Boundless performance. Gigabyte has taken the design of their AORUS gaming notebook to the next level with the advent of the X7 DT v6. With class-leading GPU and CPU performance, speedy solid-state storage, and powerful networking and display options,...

record-setting GPU performance, extremely fast CPU, excellent storage speeds, easy overclocking of both CPU and GPU, simple and powerful fan speed controls, innovative cooling design, attractive (and comparably lightweight) design, 120 Hz screen...

subtle horizontal lines visible on screen, TN panel with pedestrian viewing angles and color reproduction, loud operation under load (with sufficient cooling settings applied), weak speakers, short battery life

The AORUS X7 DT v6 is one of the most powerful gaming notebooks we’ve reviewed to date here at Notebookcheck, and substantially lighter than most of the competition, to boot. Thanks to the awesome power of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 combined with the...

Aorus X7 v6 Review

 

Aorus has yet another slender powerhouse on its hands. Weighing 7.2 pounds -- impressively light for a gaming rig like this -- the X7 v6 (starting at $2,199; reviewed at $2,499) is one of the lightest desktop replacements on the market. Equipped with...

Aorus X7 v6 review (GTX 1070, G-Sync, overclocking)

 

Few laptop companies push the envelope quite like Aorus, and the boutique firm's latest model doesn't hold back. It looks fantastic, but that's not the only feature that attracts attention – this notebook also includes graphics and processor overclocking.

This good-looking laptop serves up loads of innovations thanks to its overclocking options, G-Sync screen and good software, and it’s quick too – battering its way through our benchmarks no matter the game or application. It’s got good lighting,...

Aorus X7 v6 Review and Ratings

 

With RGB lighting that's programmable key by key, the Aorus X7 v6 is a slim, overclocked Nvidia "Pascal" gaming beast. Only some display-panel worries kept it from gaming-laptop super-stardom.

Strong gaming performance ; Sleek, stealthy design ; Per-key RGB LED keyboard ; Good touch pad, dedicated gaming macros ; Decent cooling system for such a thin notebook

Minimal battery life ; QHD display not as clear as expected ; Difficult to upgrade

Here in late 2016, the Aorus X7 v6 is about as slick as gaming notebooks come. From its first-rate construction to its stealthy looks and incredibly thin design, this notebook is a minor work of art.

Aorus X7 v6 review

 

Sleek and sexy, but that screen...

Great benchmarks ; Streamlined overall design ; Customisable backlit keyboard ; Overclocked CPU

Atrocious battery life ; Screen isn’t very good ; On the pricey side

It’s VR Ready, looks lovely and racks up fantastic benchmarks, it’s a pity the battery life is so dismal. Oh, but the screen...

Aorus X7 v6

 

It's normal for notebooks to make compromises, but Aorus machines try to go above and beyond. Take the X7 v6, which includes a huge list of features: a GTX 1070 GPU, an overclockable Core i7 processor and a 120Hz screen with G-Sync. The result is a...

Aorus X7 Gaming Laptop Review

 

The first laptop from Gigabyte's new gaming arm - Aorus - doesn't disappoint.

Superb gaming performance ; Fast SLI GTX765M graphics ; Thin and stylish design ; Decent onboard audio ; Good value for money ; Macro Keys ; Great storage options

Poor battery life ; Noisy when under load ; Not the latest 800 series Nvidia graphics

This first offering from Gigabyte's new gaming focused arm, Aorus, packs a very decent specification into the slim 1" thick design. At £1,649 the Aorus X7 main draw is the dual GTX765M Nvidia graphics in SLI and Aorus claim this to be the thinnest SLI...
