WINDFORCE Cooling System | Cool When It Counts

It’s a well-known fact that processor(CPU) and graphics (GPU) chips are the heat monsters in gaming laptops, with that in mind, more and more high-performance gaming laptops that are made to be “light and thin” at the cost of having a proper cooling system.

The tradeoff causes sudden overheating issues such as lag, decreased usage times and a shorter component lifespan. The AORUS 5 vB and AORUS 7 vB fully upgraded its cooling system with WINDFORCE cooling technology, pushing over 150W of effective heat dissipation performance with optimized 4 heatpipes and heatsinks system, taking care of the CPU and GPU. This is the real 100% cooling performance for gamers that wants to win without breaking a sweat.
