The Gigabyte Aorus 15G doesn’t only want to score with current hardware, but also with a lot of features. Besides the new Comet Lake H processors and an RTX Super graphics card, there is also a mechanical keyboard and much more on board. How the Gigabyte Aorus 15G performs, you can find out in our review.
Packaging and accessories
A simple cardboard box in which the Aorus 15G is waiting for you, well padded. What more can you expect. You get a high-end device without a lot of frills. Of course, the box contains the power supply and some paperwork. One highlight is a small cooling pad for an M.2 SSD, an unexpected addition.
Our tested model is the Aorus 15G XB. The processor used is an Intel i7-10875H, along with 16 GB of DDR4 memory. The graphics unit is a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super in Max-Q design with 8 GB GDDR6 graphics memory. To handle the power of the hardware, an M.2 SSD with 512 GB is installed.
The cooperation with the professionals of G2 Esports is also noticeable in the equipment. The 15.6 inch display has only a FullHD resolution, but is X-Rite-Pantone certified. This ensures good color reproduction for photo and video editing. Depending on the model, the display has a refresh rate of 144 Hz; our model even manages 240 Hz.
The Aorus 15G also has sufficient connections. Three USB 3.2 and one Thunderbolt 3 ports offer enough space to connect peripherals, for example. There are also two additional connections for additional monitors, one HDMI 2.0 and one Mini Display Port 1.4. Network technology from Killer provides connectivity. The E2600 is used as the network card, while an AX1650 provides the Wi-Fi connection.
The HD camera is also worth mentioning. Although it is only an HD camera, it is perfectly sufficient for simple video conferences. However, the camera is not mounted on the display, but above the keyboard. But much more important is the device to cover the camera.
As a highlight, the mechanical keyboard with switches from Omron should also be mentioned. According to Gigabyte, this makes the Aorus 15G the lightest and thinnest gaming notebook with a mechanical keyboard. And the keyboard is really good. A good stroke, the stroke distance isn’t too long, but it still has the feel of a normal mechanical keyboard.
