Gigabyte AORUS, AERO, and G-series laptops for 11th Gen Core

Gigabyte has begun teasing its upcoming laptops, which are more or less a refresh of existing designs. We gathered all the specs and photos we could find and prepared a short overview of what is being prepared by the manufacturer.  

AORUS 17X YD

This is the flagship model featuring the unlocked Tiger Lake-H CPU (Core i9-11980H). This is also one of the few laptops to feature the Max-P variant of the RTX 3080 16GB graphics card with TDP up to 165W (thanks to Dynamic Boost). The display is a downer for sure, a 17.3-inch display at FHD with 72% NTSC coverage is underwhelming, especially since other Gigabyte laptops have a much better choice. The AORUS 17X weighs 3.75kg.

  • CPU:
    • Intel Core i9-11980HK (2.6GHz~5.0GHz)
  • GPU:
    • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 16GB GDDR6, Boost Clock 1710MHz (165W)
  • DISPLAY:
    • 17.3″ Thin Bezel FHD 1920×1080 IPS-level Anti-glare Display LCD (300Hz, 72% NTSC)

AORUS 17G

The second best 17-inch laptop from Gigabyte for 2021 is the AORUS 17G. This laptop has a lot better choice in GPUs (3080, 3070, or 3060), but they are all limited to 105W. The refreshed 17G will only ship with Core i7-11800H CPU and the same 1080p panel as the 17X. On a plus side, it only weighs 2.7kg.

  • CPU:
    • Intel Core i7-11800H (2.3GHz~4.6GHz)
  • GPU Options:
    • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 16GB/8GB GDDR6, Boost Clock 1245 MHz (105W)
    • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6, Boost Clock 1290 MHz (105W)
    • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 6GB GDDR6, Boost Clock 1530 MHz (105W)
  • DISPLAY:
    • 17.3″ Thin Bezel FHD 1920×1080 IPS-level Anti-glare Display LCD (300Hz, 72% NTSC)

AORUS 15P

The 15P is a 15.6-inch gaming laptop with two screen options. Both have a rather average color accuracy, but at least there is a 240Hz or 360Hz refresh option. The laptop is powered by a Core i7-11800H CPU and one of the three GPU: 3080 130W, 3070 130W, or 3060 115W. It weighs 2.2 kg and has a 99Wh battery.

  • CPU:
    • Intel Core i7-11800H (2.3GHz~4.6GHz)
  • GPU Options:
    • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 16GB/8GB GDDR6.Boost Clock 1545MHz (130W)
    • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6, Boost Clock 1560 MHz (130W)
    • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 6GB GDDR6, Boost Clock 1605 MHz (115W)
  • DISPLAY Options:
    • 15.6″ Thin Bezel FHD 1920×1080 IPS-level Anti-glare Display LCD (360Hz, 72% NTSC)
    • 15.6″ Thin Bezel FHD 1920×1080 IPS-level Anti-glare Display LCD (240Hz, 72% NTSC)

AERO 17 HDR

AERO is series for content creators, thus the panels are a lot better here, well, at least the image quality is. The UHD panels in AERO series are only 60 Hz, which may not convince gamers, but DisplayHDR 400 certification and 100% Adobe RGB color gamut coverage certainly will convince content creators. This is also the only AERO laptop to be equipped with up to Core i9-11980HK CPU (so just like the 17X). GPU power is limited to 105W though, but users may choose between RTX 3080, 3070, or 3060.

  • CPU Options:
    • Intel Core i9-11980HK (2.6GHz~5.0GHz)
    • Intel Core i7-11800H (2.3GHz~4.6GHz)

    • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 16GB/8GB GDDR6, Boost Clock 1245 MHz (105W)
    • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6, Boost Clock 1290 MHz (105W)
    • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 6GB GDDR6, Boost Clock 1530 MHz (105W)
  • DISPLAY:
    • 17.3″ Thin Bezel UHD 3840×2160 IPS-level Anti-glare Display LCD (VESA DisplayHDR 400, 100% Adobe RGB)

AERO 15 OLED

The 15-inch version of the AERO laptop is essentially the same, spec-wise. There is a major upgrade here though, which is the Samsung AMOLED display with DisplayHDR 400 True Black certification.
