The time for a change is here as AORUS introduces the new “Kaby Lake” processor with its next generation laptops. The new 7th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 Processor sure outperforms its predecessor in every aspect, with increased clock speed and graphics core, for extra gaming and multitasking performance. 4K UHD content has been an increasing trend in recent years, which is why the new Core™ i7 Processor includes HEVC10b and VP9 decoding for smooth 4K processing capabilities.

Thunderbolt 3| Versatile Connectivity with One Port

Besides having the latest top of the range Core™ i7 Processor, AORUS has listened to gamers and added Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) port connectivity to the new X5 and X7 series.
