Gigabyte has unveiled a highly effective new gaming notebook which derives its pixel-pushing prowess from dual GeForce GTX 1070 GPUs.
The new Aorus X9 boasts an Intel Main i7-7820HK quad-main processor (base clock two.9GHz, with Turbo to 3.9GHz) which can be overclocked, and as talked about, a pair of GTX 1070 graphics cards hooked up in SLI (with 8GB of video clip memory each).
That chunky main spec is backed by up to 64GB of program RAM, and for storage, you can specify a pair of M.two PCIe SSDs (optimum capacity 512GB each) alongside a regular hard disk (up to 2TB).
For the 17.3-inch display, you can both run with a 4K IPS panel that offers a hundred% Adobe RGB coverage, or a two,560 x one,440-resolution display with a refresh charge of 120Hz and a 5ms reaction time.
The X9 also rewards from a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches, which is backlit with sixteen.7 million colors to opt for from (and per-critical lighting).
At last, it’s truly worth mentioning that Gigabyte has worked hard on the cooling program to keep all these peppy elements from any danger of overheating. That signifies the notebook has substantial cooling vents, four fans, and 8 heatpipes.
Availability is to be verified, and pricing will commence from $3,199 (for the non-4K variation), which is all over £2,430 or AU$four,070. That is not low-cost, but highly effective gaming laptops never ever are (the finest you can hope for is a excellent deal on a gaming moveable come Black Friday, probably).
We’ll be obtaining the Aorus X9 in for review before long, and can not hold out to get trapped into some benchmarking with this highly effective notebook. Meantime, test out our arms-on with the notebook back again at CES.
