Introduction

GIGABYTE Logo

Gigabyte continues to be a premier manufacturer in the PC market, featuring numerous products, including mice, keyboards, gaming chairs, motherboards, laptops, mini-PCs, and more. With such a diverse product range, the brand has a good deal of mind share. It doesn't hurt that they continue to push and adapt, such as with the creation of the AORUS brand for enthusiast-tier products.


In today's review, I look at the Gigabyte AORUS 15G notebook. This high-end, 15.6-inch unit looks sleek and packs some truly impressive hardware. For the CPU, the system packs an 8c/16t Intel i7 10875H, and for your gaming needs, it has an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q. The display is where Gigabyte decided to go the extra miles by offering a 1080p IGZO panel with an impressive 240 Hz refresh rate. That alone isn't worth too much fanfare, but the fact that it is also X-Rite Pantone certified and factory-calibrated certainly is. Good specifications are nice, but a properly calibrated screen? Now, that's fantastic. So without further ado, it's time to see what the AORUS 15G XB is capable of!
