P9087, Dominant Score in 3DMark 11

COMPUTEX 2014, Taipei, TAIWAN - AORUS, an emerging force of gaming products is poised to launch the greatest gaming laptop, the X7 with dual GTX860M graphics at Computex 2014.

At less than an inch thick and weighing just 3 kilograms (6.6 lbs), the X7 features a whole package of advanced elements under its astonishing yet understated minimalist outlook. Capable of phenomenal performance and unparalleled portability for a 17" machine, seamless integration of Macro Engine distinguishes the X7 from other self-proclaimed gaming laptops.

Experience even more extremely fast and fluid gameplay at the highest settings and resolution in a lightweight and portable design. Insanely thin and light for its form factor, the X7 is less than an inch (22.9mm) thick and weighs only 3kg (6.6 lbs).

Streamline Design, AORUS Thermal + Technology, and Ample Memory

Carrying the signature theme of the stunning AORUS chassis, a style that blends futuristic concepts of minimalism and fluidic sculpture, the metallic silver falcon rests on the center with sculpted lines and three molded ridges surrounding the full aluminum matte black chassis.

AORUS Thermal+ technology incorporates 5 thermal Pipes and 2 fans and a total of 4 rear and side vents, optimizing cooling effect air flow efficiency for excellent reliability & stability.
