Gigabyte Crams GTX 1070 into Aero 15 X Laptop

Gigabyte is improving on its already impressive Aero 15 laptop by squeezing in an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card. The original Aero 15 features a GTX 1060 6GB. However, the new Aero 15 X goes one better with the GTX 1070. The GTX 1070 in question is the Max-Q version of the card. As a result, it will run a little slower than the desktop version. Specifically, it clocks at 1442MHz base and 1645MHz boost. Either way, it’s an upgrade on the Aero 15’s GTX 1060.
