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 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!
Aorus unveiled their latest laptops today, the refreshed X7 and new X5S. Both models come with sixth-generation Intel Core i7 processors, high-end Nvidia graphics cards and fast PCI-e solid state drives plus capacious mechanical hard drives.
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is one of the biggest tech events of the year, as manufacturers from across the globe meet to show off their latest and greatest creations. Gaming laptop makers Aorus were at the show this year to announce a new laptop that takes the middle-place in their lineup, between the X3 Plus and the third-generation X7 Pro. The new laptop is unsurprisingly called the X5, and brings both gaming power and style to the 15-inch form factor.
The first Aorus laptop was a titan, a 17-inch behemoth that excelled at gaming on the go with a pair of powerful graphics cards and top-notch specifications all the way around. Despite the X7’s thin design, that laptop was still a hassle to carry around thanks to its impressive dimensions and significant weight.
Now Aorus are back with a dramatically more portable gaming laptop, the 13.3-inch X3 and 13.9-inch X3 Plus. While these laptops only have a single graphics card, the remaining specifications are impressive and the inclusion of a new 3K (3200 x 1800) display outdoes even the 17-inch model.
On paper this laptop looks top-notch; well worth its £1500 [...]
I was incredibly impressed with the original Aorus X7 upon its release; the laptop packed an impressive amount of gaming horsepower into a dramatically thin 17-inch frame. Now the second version is here, with upgraded Intel processors and Nvidia graphics cards… and a few other nice changes that I’ve highlighted in the spec sheet below. Let’s see how it compares to the previous generation!
