It's hard to argue with the performance of the AORUS X5S v5. Find out why it's worth its price in this AORUS X5S v5 review.

Excellent gaming performance ; Comfortable keyboard and touchpad ; Vivid 4K display ; Thin and light design ; High quality MultiCam camouflage finish

Chassis gets blistering hot while gaming ; Very loud fans ; Display lacks Nvidia G-Sync support ; Pricey

Aorus X5S v5 Notebook Review

 

One is better than two. The refreshed X5 shows that a single more powerful GPU is the better choice against two weaker GPUs in SLI.

DDR4, HDMI 2.0, NVMe SSD, USB Type-C Gen. 2 ; high quality matte panel with accurate colors; high sRGB coverage ; strong performance under stress; no throttling ; improved matte touchpad with better gliding ; RAID support (after BIOS update) ; Nvidia...

high power consumption even when idling or in Sleep mode ; PWM utilization at very low brightness settings ; fewer HDMI and USB Type-A ports than X5 ; loud fan noise when idling and gaming ; high core and surface temperatures ; inconsistent touchpad...

The Aorus X5S is a sizable leap over the X5, but not without taking a few small steps back in the process. All the new upgrades are no doubt appreciated including DDR4, NVMe, USB Type-C, and the move from GTX 965M SLI to a single GTX 980M. The latter...

Aorus X5S v5 review

 

One wicked 4K gaming laptop, so long an outlet is nearby

Gamer-specific features ; Gorgeous screen ; Tons of storage

Decreased, but still noticeable fan noise ; Lackluster speakers ; Battery life

This high-roller mobile gaming PC sports a gorgeous 4K screen and churns through tasks, but don't try using it without an outlet nearby.

Aorus X5S v5 Camo 15.6" UHD Gaming Laptop Review

 

We take a look at Aorus's high-end 15" gaming laptop with 4K display – the GTX980M and see if it is worth the price tag!

High Specification ; Powerful GTX980M GPU ; Gorgeous 4K display ; Smart Camo design

£300 extra just for Camo? ; Poorer than expected battery life ; Restricted performance when gaming using battery ; No disc drive ; Gets very hot underneath

claim this to be the World’s most powerful 15” laptop. Frankly that’s just not true anymore and you do have to feel a little sorry for the . A few months back it would have been the cream of the crop as far as performance is concerned but with the...

Great product but with flaws Software

 

Aorus must solve these problems not to lose customers because in my previous laptops (MSI ) had no problem with the drivers and this time thought of buying a new product of high performance like that Aorus offers but did not think having to deal with...

CURRENTLY I have a serious problem because Nvidia GPU not Leave me then updated its drivers as these tell me not detect a compatible device , that's weird because the controller that provides Aorus on your website if it is able to detect it but this is...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Looks Awesome, works great, but sounds and feels like a jet engine!

 

If you would like to have just one machine for everything, this guy is a good choice. Pair it with a nice monitor and Keyboard/Mouse and you have a small, portable gaming machine that can do it all, including your taxes. Just move it to the side so it...

Fast, light, thin, excellent screen and you just can't beat the MultiCam! The hardware works as expected for a top of the line gaming laptop.

- Loud, after a couple of minutes with any game(from FPS to RPG), the fans are kicked up to max speed, so I find myself turning up the sound(which is excellent for a laptop)......it is annoying, but expected for this kind of gear in the thin frame. -...

Great gaming laptops with couple flaws

 

Windows 10 sucks

- It will chew through pretty much every game out there right now on ultra no problem - Great workbench on the go if you are a developer that travels a lot - Sleek design, and fairly light considering what is inside - Although the fan is loud, it does...

- 4K eats through battery, and, frankly, the laptop can't handle a lot of games on ultra in 4K. You will find yourself lowering resolution for a lot of games - Low battery liife - Loud fan noise
