Gigabyte Aorus X7 High-end Gaming Notebook Preview

/ 3 years ago


It appears that “Aorus” is in fact Gigabyte’s new line of gaming notebooks, much like Alienware is to Dell. Therefore, Aorus is a sub-brand of Gigabyte with high-end gaming notebooks under its belt. And the best thing is that the Aorus X7 gaming notebook will debut at CES 2014.

Gigabyte will showcase the whole line of Aorus gaming notebooks at CES 2014 in January. The notebook in spotlight today is the Aorus X7, it is powered by 4th generation Intel Core i7 Haswell processor and NVIDIA GTX 700 series graphics. There is not much reveal in-terms of specifications except for that it houses a 17-inch display and some shots of its exterior. The notebook has a simple yet attractive design, with Aorus logo at the top.

According to the pictures, Aorus X7 comes with VGA, 2 x HDMI and one mini DisplayPorts along with one SD card slot and USB 3.0 ports for external storage. Standard audio jacks plus a full-size keyboards makes up the Auros X7. Benchmarks and details of the notebook will be revealed at CES in January.


Auros X7 sure looks powerful but at the same time quite bulky but its normal for a gaming with a few exceptions of course. Razer’s Blade and MSI’s GT70 are two very powerful yet slim notebooks but if Gigabyte’s Aorus X7 houses SLI NVIDIA graphics with super fast SSDs in RAID then the thickness can be ignored. For more details stay tuned since CES 2014 is just 8 days away.
