Aorus X3 Plus v7 (i7-7820HK, GTX 1060) Xotic PC Edition Laptop Review


Small screamer. The Aorus X3 Plus v7 brings a lot of power in a tiny package. While the internals are impressive, thermals and noise present problems. Emissions aside, the X3 Plus v7 is a capable and portable gaming notebook.

great design ; premium materials ; high performance ; small and lightweight ; excellent screen ; unlocked CPU and GPU

loud and annoying fans ; runs hot ; CPU throttles under load ; draws too much power for PSU under load ; frustrating touchpad

The X3 Plus v7 is an ambitious device. It continues Aorus' push to fit powerful hardware into a compact case. Unfortunately, the X3 tries to have its cake and eat it too, and the end result is a notebook of compromise. While there are some definite...

Gigabyte Aorus X3 Plus review – a beastly 13.9-inch gaming ultraportable


Gigabyte's Aorus X3 Plus is one of the most interesting gaming ultraportables you could buy right now. Just over $2000 will get you a beastly configuration and a high-quality matte display which should lead to a solid experience in even the latest...

compact and light; looks nice; good screen, keyboard and trackpad; powerful hardware configuration and solid performance in games; fair battery life; proper priced

inconsistent wi-fi performance, some design flaws (weak lid, keyboard flex, etc), poor speakers, some throttling under load

Gigabyte Aorus X3 Plus


A tiny gaming notebook with a mighty screen. Is this the ultimate portable powerhouse?

Impressively slim and light ; Huge gaming power ; Innovative, fast storage ; Powerful Core i7 processor ; Great screen quality

Inconsistent build quality ; Hot, loud cooling hardware ; Screen resolution is too high ; Expensive

The speakers aren’t as loud as the booming Alienware, but quality is surprisingly good: the high-end is rich, and the mid-range and low-end are both meaty and deep. There’s perhaps a little too much of that low-end sound here, but we’d use these for...

Aorus X3 Plus v6 review


A fine compact gaming laptop

Lightweight ; Impressive benchmarks ; Macro buttons ; Overclockable from the box ; Quiet

A little pricey ; Slightly thick ; Difficult to get hold of

A genuinely portable gaming laptop that performs above and beyond its nearest rivals.

Aorus X3 Plus gaming laptop review


Under the brand name Aorus, there are two laptops available from the Taiwanese motherboard brand – the 17.3-inch Aorus X7 which we reviewed recently, and the smaller 13.3 or 14-inch X3.

The Aorus X3 Plus works well as a portable games station, providing fast framerates with modern games at high details settings. Its high-resolution screen is less obviously useful for its gaming role as fewer games may benefit from its high 262 ppi...

Aorus X3 Plus


This is a fast and powerful Gaming Notebook yes the screen is not huge but it does display a huge screen resolution. When I first saw it I could not believe the clarity and sharpness which of course along with sound quality is what gamers demand.

This is the first notebook – of any size that I have seen – that has natively displayed 3200x1800. It is 32.5x23x2cm and the screen is 31x17.5cm. On first startup after entering the normal Windows required information a screen opens on the Desktop with...

great portability and strong performance


This laptop is very easy to carry around, light weight and small size. This is good for work purposes as well as playing games, graphic capability is awesome, it plays any games I like very well. I like the laptop design, it's not very flashy or over...

The power adapter unlike the laptop is quite big comparing to the laptop size, need to use a bigger bag to carry all of the accessories. 3K screen can be too much for me, 1080p fhd is good enough for my applications

Product doesn't have a Dedicated 870m 6GB Graphics Card


You can get better laptops then an aorus laptop for this price. As someone who likes to give new companies a test, aorus left a terrible impression. If you got this with the combo, the monitor doesn't have an HDMI and you will need to get a converter...

the 3200 x 1800 screen looks amazing

Cheap keyboard. The plastic keys really don't have a good feel to them ; PRODUCT IS NOT AS ADVERTISED: There is not a dedicated 6GB 870m graphics card, there is a dedicated 2GB 870M Graphics card with 4GB of shared memory ; It also states that there is...

Perfect laptop for work and games


The quality of this laptop is great as expected, I am very pleased and glad to have found this laptop. I use this not only for games but also for photo editing, the 3K screen really is amazing.

Compact and lightweight ; 13.9" 3K display great for design and photos ; Plays all of my games well and hi-res ; I like the macro keys setup and the software is easy to use, the macros can be setup to memorize movement and mouse clicks ; Aluminum...

big power adapter ; no built in HDD, I use a portable HDD for large files ; Need more USB ports
