The Aorus X5 v8 K644W10-FR targets those looking for a versatile 15-inch notebook PC that targets gamers.
Thanks to its GeForce GTX 1070 dedicated card, it is indeed able to run at a good level of detail the most recent games you eat in graphics resources.
However, this computer skips the Optimus technology because it is incompatible with G-Sync which is present and synchronizes the GTX 1070 just with the screen to ensure the best possible rendering.
With its frequency of 144Hz (60Hz as standard), the screen improves the fluidity in games. It also offers more accurate colorimetry than average as well as very comfortable horizontal and vertical viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology. Full HD, the screen is well suited to High Definition content and especially videos because of its 16 / 9th format. In addition, its antireflection treatment makes it more readable in a bright environment than a glossy slab.
To seduce the players, Aorus integrates a hybrid storage solution for this computer which ensures both a fast reactivity thanks to the very fast dedicated SSD and a large capacity thanks to the hard disk. With its 512 GB, the first can accommodate many games / software in addition to the system, the rest taking place on the second and its 1000 GB, swift model with its speed of 7200 rpm against 5400 rpm currently.
The heart of this notebook is to match, built around an Intel HM370 chipset, 16 GB of RAM and a latest generation Coffee Lake Hexa Core i7-8850H processor. This results in a global power capable of satisfying the most demanding users who benefit from a much more fluid and faster operation than a PC without a 4 GB DDR3 / 4 based SSD and a Dual Core processor, or even Quad Core in resource-intensive RAM and CPU fields exploiting multicore architecture such as 3D rendering, video editing or photo editing.
Connectivity side, this notebook is well equipped with its USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect wirelessly wireless, HDMI video outputs and mini-DisplayPort useful for linking easily to a monitor or TV for example, its Ethernet and audio ports or its 4 USB 3.1 including 1 USB 3.1 Gen2 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if the USB 3.0 / .1 devices are plugged into it.
Finally, the chiclet keyboard has a useful key backlight system to discern correctly in the dark and is accompanied by customizable macro keys to seduce the players.
