But I’m going to single out a few new models because they pack a lot of features into a relatively compact chassis.
The new Gigabyte Aorus 15G, for example, is a 4.85 pound laptop with a 1080p 240 Hz IGZO LCD display and mechanical keyboard switches with a 1.6mm actuation point and per-key RGB illumination.
Gigabyte is offering the laptop with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q GPU and up to a Core i9-10980HK octa-core processor with support for boost speeds as high as 5.3 GHz.
And the notebook supports up to 64GB of DDR4-2666 memory, has dual M.2 2280 SSD slots, Killer Ethernet E2600, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, Thunderbolt 3, HDMI 2.0, Mini DisplayPort 1.4, a headset jack, and a few USB 3.2 Type-A ports. And the 14″ x 9.8″ x 1″ laptop is powered by a 94 Wh battery.
The new Gigabyte Aorus 5, meanwhile, is a more affordable model with a 144 Hz display, a Core i7-10750H hexa-core processor, and up to NVIDIA RTX 2060 graphics.
While this model does not have mechanical key switches, it does have a backlit keyboard with support for 15 colors.
What it doesn’t have is a Thunderbolt 3 port. Instead you get HDMI 2.0, Mini DisplayPort, Ethernet, and USB Type-C and Type-A ports plus an SD card reader and headset jack.
Despite the fact that the Aorus 5 is the same weight as the Auros 15G (4.85 pounds), this model has a smaller battery (48.96 Wh) and a larger body (14.2″ x 10.2″ x 1.1″).
Gigabyte is also introducing several new 17 inch models (the Auros 17G and 17X), as well as a new line of Aero 15 and 17 “Creator” laptops which are NVIDIA Studio edition devices that use the same hardware as a gaming machine, but with drivers designed to optimize content creation performance.
