GIGABYTE unveils major upgrades to AORUS and AERO notebook range

Global PC brand GIGABYTE today announced major upgrades to the latest version AORUS series professional gaming notebooks, and the AERO series notebooks designed for creative professionals. The new upgrades see the company become the first in the industry to launch ultra-performance notebooks that feature 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i9/i7 H series 8-core CPU and NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 20-series SUPER™ GPUs.

GIGABYTE also launched three new flagship models of its AORUS series: the AORUS 17X, AORUS 17G and  AORUS 15G. Upgrades to this include three 10th gen Intel® processors – overclocking-capable Intel® Core™ i9-10980HK, Intel® Core™ i7-10875H and Intel® Core™ i7-10750H. Perhaps the most eye-catching is the i7-10875H, the first mobile Core i7 processor featuring 8 cores, 16 threads.

As for graphics, in addition to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-series and the GTX 16 series, the all-new flagship NVIDIA GeForce® RTX 2080 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER™ have been added to enhance media processing speed and gaming performance.

The major enhancements also feature across the AERO series, with the AERO 15, AERO 17, 15” AERO 15 OLED and 17” AERO 17 HDR, receiving a 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i9/i7 H series 8-core CPU and NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 20-series SUPER™ GPUs.

AORUS – Innovative Design X Professional Gaming

The AORUS 17X, AORUS 17G and AORUS 15G are the lightest notebooks in the industry that feature true mechanical keyboards. AORUS works in exclusive partnership with world renowned mechanical switches manufacturer, OMRON, to minimise the size of mechanical switches while retaining its quality and create the world’s lightest mechanical keyboard notebook.

In addition, they offer phenomenal tactile feel and crisp switch sound feedback, significantly increasing game speed and performance, meeting the precise and rapid in-game control requirements of the pros.

FPS world championship tournaments (CS:GO Major & PUBG World Champion) in the recent years have elevated their monitor specifications to 240Hz. With this in mind, AORUS has set this as the standard for the display of all its high-end product series. A 240Hz refresh rate effectively reduces the occurrence of afterimages and broken images, providing optimal experience and high-speed visuals for enthusiasts.

To keep up with the latest CPU and GPUs upgrades, AORUS adopts its exclusive WINDFORCE Infinity cooling technology, ensuring that the hardware can perform to their full potential while maintaining comfortability. The AORUS series form the pinnacle of high-performance gaming that pro gamers pursue.

AERO – Professional Content Creation Multi-Purpose Application

Regarding AERO’s performance, not only has CPU and GPU both undergone upgrades, but cooling has also been improved through the WINDFORCE Infinity technology.

Furthermore, AERO utilises NVIDIA Studio driver to optimise over 40 editing software that content creators often use for improved efficiency. Equipped with a multitude of interface such as Thunderbolt 3, HDMI 2.0, and UHS-II SD card reader, AERO is truly the epitome of “an ultra-portable notebook with desktop-level performance.”

AERO series also offers 144Hz high refresh rate display in satisfying the different gaming and game development applications. With powerful CPU, GPUs performance and premium I/O interface design, users can play games, stream and surf the internet all at the same time. Its ability to perform multiple functions is why AERO has been dubbed the best versitile notebook.

Pre-ordering of professional gaming notebooks AORUS 17X, AORUS 17G, AORUS 15G and the content creator AERO series are available starting today, with official sales starting from 16th April. Entry level AORUS 5 & AORUS 7 models are expected to launch in late April.
