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!
The GTX 10 series — including the 1080, 1070 and 1060 — have made quite a splash as desktop graphics cards, and now it’s time for us to see the laptop equivalents. Lots of laptop makers announced new models featuring the mobile 10 series cards today, and we’re going to take a look at the offerings from Aorus and Gigabyte.
It’s Computex 2016, and that means big announcements from PC makers across the world. Gigabyte took the chance to announce a completely new laptop, the Aero 14. After 66 P-series laptops, it’s definitely time for a change – so let’s take a look at the new blood, which Gigabyte claim is the ‘most portable 14-inch laptop’.
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.
The P34G is Gigabyte’s smallest laptop, a compact 14-inch model with a reasonable £750 price point. Today, we’re reviewing the latest v5 model, which adds modern niceties including USB-C, HDMI 2.0 and sixth generation Intel Skylake processors.
Gigabyte’s latest laptop is the 17.3-inch P57, which was announced at CES earlier this year and is now available online. It comes in two flavours: the mid-range P57K and more powerful P57W. Like the P35X v5 that we reviewed last month, it comes well-stocked with new-age tech, including a USB Type-C port, HDMI 2.0 and DDR4 RAM.
