Chassis, connectors, screen of the Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED XD-73FR644SP
It sports a rather discreet and elegant design for a gaming laptop PC which it nevertheless adopts the codes with its black aluminum frame with angular lines.
It accommodates the webcam not above the screen but below while its cooling is provided by 2 large fans (71 blades), 5 heat pipes (3 dedicated to CPU and GPU) and air vents.
This multimedia laptop runs on Windows 10 Pro, a more complete system than classic Windows 10 with its advanced network management and security features, such as BitLocker.
The connectivity integrated into this creator-oriented gaming laptop PC is good, including 1 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, HDMI video outputs and mini-DisplayPort useful in order to easily connect this computer to a monitor or a TV for example, Bluetooth 5.0 modules and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect wirelessly, Ethernet and audio ports not to mention 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
We can obviously backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard which is very practical to better discern them in the dark.
The screen will undoubtedly appeal to demanding designers because it reproduces colors much more faithfully than average while displaying deep blacks thanks to its characteristics 100% DCI-P3 X-Rite Pantone Delta E Performance, battery life of Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED XD-73FR644SP
The Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED XD-73FR644SP targets those on a big budget who want to invest in a versatile 15-inch thin and light laptop that performs well in gaming and creation.
The overall power it provides is able to appeal to the most demanding users because it embeds no less than 32 GB of RAM coupled to an Intel Tiger Lake-H Octo Core i7-11800H processor.
This core will particularly appeal to creatives because it guarantees much faster processing than with 8/16 GB DDR4 and a Quad / Hexa Core processor. The difference is strongly palpable in areas that consume RAM and CPU resources and take advantage of multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
Creators will also be delighted to find the dedicated GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card because it speeds up processing under software using GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
High-end, the GeForce RTX 3070 NVIDIA Ampere with ray tracing, here in Max-Q edition , is also capable of running recent games.
However, under the most demanding titles, some concessions are to be made for example at the level of the definition of the screen, because the 4K requires more calculation on the part of the GPU than the Full HD, which implies a number of fps less raised.
In fact, the GeForce RTX 3070 Max-Q is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
To promote battery life as much as possible, Optimus seeks as much as possible the Intel Iris Xe, a modest graphics solution housed within the Octo Core i7.
In terms of battery life, moreover, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 3070 Max-Q is in fact called upon by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe, for example to play. With one or the other of these graphics solutions in any case, we can obviously watch photos and videos.
The storage is up to the task, entrusted to an SSD guaranteeing much better fluidity and responsiveness under processing, in games and more generally on a daily basis.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks and silent.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, for example, we get faster on online game cards and we benefit from much faster game / software launches, processing and starts / stops.
In addition here, we take advantage of a 1 TB SSD, a large capacity that competes without worry with what hard disks offer.
And scalability is essential in terms of storage since an M.2 slot is free to add a second SSD.
Finally, keep in mind that this laptop PC is shoes and is noisy when it is strongly pushed (ex: games, treatments), in particular because of the powerful components and the thinness of the chassis which, like its contained weight, facilitate its transport. .
