Hardcore gamers have no doubt heard of Gigabyte for its extensive selection of components for PC builds as well as its monitors and accessories, but Gigabyte has a new fleet of laptops that take the company’s know-how and put it all in one place. From gamers to professionals and from value-seekers to high-end enthusiasts, Gigabyte’s latest Aorus, Aero and G-Series laptops offer a little something for everyone.
If you’re looking to get in on the ground floor and start gaming on a tighter budget, the Gigabyte G5 and G7 are where it’s at. These gaming laptops pack in the latest, 11th-Gen Intel Core processors and pair them with either an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 or 3050 Ti, giving them a potent dose of gaming performance to drive their 1080, 144Hz displays. You’ll get plenty of room for your game library as well with two M.2 SSD slots and a 2.5-inch drive slot.
The Gigabyte G5 and G7 have the muscle you need to get into the game, and that performance can translate well into work as well. But, for the professional experience, Gigabyte’s AERO line steps things up.
The Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED and Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR still includes 11th-Gen Intel Core processors, but they’re stepped up to either the Core i7-11800H or Core i9-11980HK for massive mobile performance. Gigabyte also packs in either an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 or an RTX 3080 to drive the graphics. That graphical brawn will come in handy, too, as these laptops feature 4K HDR displays.
In the case of the 15-inch model, that’s a Samsung AMOLED panel, while the 17-inch model has an anti-glare LCD display. Both offer DisplayHDR 400 and come X-Rite Color Calibrated and Pantone Validated, ensuring you can do color-critical design work right from the laptop’s built-in display. Thunderbolt 4 connectivity can also help you connect to external devices at high bandwidth, making it incredibly quick to transfer large project files. Impressively, Gigabyte packs this all into compact hardware, with both models measuring less than an inch thick.
While any of the laptops mentioned so far will do the job when it comes to gaming, Gigabyte’s Aorus 15P, 17G, and 17X are built to reign supreme in the gaming space. You’ll still find 11th-Gen Intel Core i7 and Core i9 processors paired with either an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 or RTX 3080, but here Gigabyte is using its Windforce Infinity cooling technology to ensure these components can run as fast as possible for as long as possible. That speed will get put to good use as well, as you can find 240Hz, 300Hz and even 360Hz refresh rate displays on these laptops. On the 17-inch models, you even get mechanical Omron switches on the keyboard, so all you’ll need is a mouse for competitive gaming on the go.
All of these latest Gigabyte laptops also include support for the latest connectivity with Bluetooth 5.0 for peripherals, Wi-Fi 6 for dependable networking, and USB 3.2 Gen 2 for fast external storage and a whole lot more.
So, if you’re on the market for a gaming upgrade and want the latest CPU and GPU pairings, don’t miss Gigabyte’s laptops.
