Plus some entry-level gaming machines from Gigabyte.
Aorus has established a name as a provider of premium gaming notebooks. On its own turf at Computex, the company provided more details on the range-topping X9, which now features twin GeForce GTX 1070 GPUs in SLI that match the performance of a single desktop GTX 1080 Ti. There is the usual RGB lighting and a choice of 17.3in screens - either 120Hz QHD or 60Hz UHD - and both are G-Sync certified. The company says it has also tweaked the cooling to offer a lower noise profile, while speedy M.2s keep the storage fast. Expect a fully-loaded version to cost about $5,000 however!
The X7 DT v7 uses the same 17.3in form factor but is more restrained in the pricing department. Part of that savings is made by having a single GTX 1080 and it powers the same screen technology found on the X9. Aorus says that many of its customers are content creators so it certifies each screen with X-Rite Pantone technology. Expect to pay around $3,000 for a decent spec model.
Moving on to Gigabyte, the Sabre and Sabre Pro are designed for mobile gamers on a lower budget. Starting at $849 for a Core i5 paired with a GeForce GTX 1050. Take a peek at the video to learn more.
