A Gigabyte announced its new gamer notebook, the Aorus 17. Gigabyte engineers have combined the most advanced components for a notebook, including an eight-core Intel Core i9 processor, an Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics card, a 240 Hz refresh rate display, and an Omron mechanical keyboard.
The new feature is equipped with the 9th generation Intel Core CPUs including the Core i9-9980HK flagship (8 cores / 16 threads, 2.4 / 5 GHz, 45 W) with unlocked multiplier. The graphics subsystem is represented by GeForce graphics cards based on the Turing architecture and can install GeForce RTX 2080 and simpler models such as GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.
The RAM capacity is DDR4-2666, can reach 64 GB (modules manufactured by Samsung), and the Intel 760p NVMe drive and a 2.5 inch hard disk / SSD are provided for storage.
The notebook at its maximum configuration received a 17.3-inch screen based on the AU Optronics IPS matrix with Full HD resolution, 240 Hz refresh rate and 3 ms response time. The screen is factory calibrated and certified by X-Rite Pantone.
The cooling system is Windforce Infinity. It is based on an evaporation chamber and five heat pipes, which are cooled by two 51-blade fans with support for PWM control and another common propeller at the base of the Aorus 17.
