The X7 DT v6 is the gem in Aorus’ glittering crown of gaming laptops. It boasts bleeding edge hardware and a few unique features, all packed into a sleek aluminium wing design. That makes it incredibly desirable, but does it justify its equally impressive £3000 price tag? We’ll let you know in our review.
The Aorus X5 has returned! Our favourite laptop of the year so far has been upgraded with a new GTX 1070 graphics card, an RGB keyboard and a more powerful, overclockable processor. Here’s our full review.
Today we’re doing something a little different — we’re reviewing two laptops at once, as we examine Gigabyte’s P35X and P37X v6. Both models are equipped with 4K screens, Core i7 processors and one of Nvidia’s latest GPUs: the mighty GTX 1070. Backed with the latest tech, these premium laptops should absolutely scream. Let’s put them to the test!
Most gaming laptops these days are sleek, futuristic machines that signal their gaming prowess through flashy LEDs. The Acer Predator 15 is something of a throwback then, with an inch-thick body that’s filled to the brim with gaming features. There are definitely advantages to living it large — let’s take a look.
The Aorus X7 Pro is the company’s largest laptop, and one of the most powerful too. It packs a pair of GTX 970M graphics cards in SLI and a high-end Core i7-6820HK processor, which should make it a great performer. Look deeper, and you won’t find many weaknesses. Our review unit came with 32GB of DDR4 RAM, a 480GB PCI-e SSD and a G-Sync capable 1080p display too. That’s a lot of horsepower in a 25mm thick laptop, so let’s put it to the test!
The Gigabyte P55W v5 is Gigabyte’s mid-range, mid-size laptop. It’s not as slim and trim as some of its peers, but that extra space allows for a deeper keyboard, better thermals and — hopefully — better performance too. With a GTX 970M and i7-6700HQ on board this laptop should be a capable performer at 1080p, so let’s put it to the test.
