Aorus X7

 

Since Razer first unveiled the Blade in 2013, competing manufacturers have scrambled to build their own ultra-slim gaming notebooks. Too often, however, they have been forced to make compromises in terms of components to achieve that holy grail of...

Aorus X7 Review

 

The 17.3-inch Aorus X7 gaming laptop packs dual GPUs and triple SSDs into a super-slim chassis, but don't forget the power cord

Gigabyte Aorus X7 Pro v3: A fast, stylish entertainment notebook [Review]

 

When we took our first look at the original

The Gigabyte Aorus X7 v3 doesn’t quite live up to the portability it promises when it comes to battery life, but it does still pack a huge amount of performance into a decidedly slim chassis, particularly where 3D graphics are concerned. The screen is...

Aorus X7 Review and Ratings

 

With its Core i7 power and dual GeForce GTX graphics, the Aorus X7 can compete with gaming laptops twice as thick and half again as heavy. But we wish it cost a little less.

Impressive SLI performance in a relatively slim package ; Comfortable keyboard ; Non-glare screen ; Solid sound

Expensive ; Poor battery life ; Bulky

The good news is that the Aorus lasted longer in our strenuous video playback test than the Origin. The bad news is that SLI notebooks are insatiable battery suckers; the Aorus' runtime is short even by gaming laptop standards.

Gigabyte Aorus X7 - True SLI Graphics in a Slim Gaming Machine

 

Beware, gaming notebook makers. Here comes competition in the form of the 17.3-inch Aorus X7 that's packed with twin NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M GPUs. This brawny powerhouse comes in a 22.9mm slender package that rivals an Ultrabook, but yet it packs...

SLI graphics in a 22.9mm slim chassis ; 17.3-inch gaming machine a mere 2.9kg light ; Reasonably priced

Exclusion of NVIDIA Optimus affects portability and battery life

Size does matter. But, Aorus has demonstrated that it's possible to pack twin GTX 765M graphics into a 22.9mm slim chassis, without compromising on performance (especially with the heat management). There's an absurd amount of things going on in the...

Aorus X7 SLI Gaming Notebook

 

If you're a gamer looking for a new mobile powerhouse, the Aorus X7 SLI a new kid on the block worth considering

Excellent power-to-weight ratio ; Strong and good-looking design ; Full HD screen

Some version 1.0 integration issues to iron out ; Wi-Fi may be impeded by the all-metal chassis

Aorus X7 SLI Gaming Notebook

 

If you're a gamer looking for a new mobile powerhouse, the Aorus X7 SLI a new kid on the block worth considering

Excellent power-to-weight ratio ; Strong and good-looking design ; Full HD screen

Some version 1.0 integration issues to iron out ; Wi-Fi may be impeded by the all-metal chassis

The Aorus X7 SLI is purpose-built for gaming, with more power and much less compromise than the competition. It has a chassis that's one of the slimmest in its class, yet manages to pack a heat dissipation system to support its high-end gaming...

Gigabyte Aorus X7 review

 

Two GPUs' worth of gaming performance in a slender case

Awesome twin-GPU power Great CPU performance Loads of RAM Lots of storage space Excellent keyboard

Loud fans Not cheap Average screen for the price Large footprint Low battery life

Ratings in depth Aorus is a name unfamiliar to, well, everyone, given that Gigabyte has only just launched this new side brand, but if you're looking for eye-catching gaming laptops, you will know it soon. In fact, right now is a good place to start,...

Review: Aorus X7

 

If you're considering a gaming laptop, then we assume you have a plan for how it will be used. If part of that plan involves a bit of travel, the X7 is ready to go, weighing in at a very surprising 2.9kg. It's thin – relative to most other gaming...

Peak performance, and a quality build.
