GIGABYTE AORUS 15G arrives with all-new design and mechanical keyboard
GIGABYTE has just announced their latest flagship gaming laptop, the GIGABYTE AORUS 15G and AORUS 17G laptops. In addition to these new designs, GIGABYTE also announced refreshes for the AERO 15 and AERO 17 creator laptops as well as as the AORUS 7 and AORUS 5 gaming laptops. But the main focus of the day is of course, the all-new GIGABYTE AORUS 15G.
Design wise, the GIGABYTE AORUS 15G features an all-new design that is supposed to evoke a unique “sports car” design with its full-aluminium build. But of course, the design is not only for looks as it accommodates GIGABYTE’s latest WINDFORCE Infinity cooling system that helps it handle the 10th Gen Intel Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER graphics cards.
In addition to that, AORUS 15G brings GIGABYTE’s AORUS signature OMRON Gaming Switches to a design that’s just 22mm thin. It should be the thinnest gaming laptop out there with a mechanical keyboard. In addition to providing awesome tactile and audible feedback, the keyboard is equipped with full per-key RGB illumination that’s enhanced by the design of the switches and keycaps to deliver brighter and more uniform lighting for a visual treat as well.
Speaking of visual experiences, the GIGABYTE AORUS 15G comes with 240 Hz display with thin 3mm bezels, so you get more screen in a smaller footprint. Last but not least, there a 94 WHr battery that promises up to 8 hours of battery life so you can bring it on a flight and work throughout your flight.
There are a number of configurations for the GIGABYTE AORUS 15G, ranging all the way up to an Intel Core i9-10985HK and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Max-Q.
