Black gaming laptop PC offering a battery life of 7 hours, the creator – oriented Gigabyte Aorus 15G WB-8FR6150MH will interest gamers with its 15-inch Full HD IPS screen adopting a frequency of 300 Hz which improves fluidity in games. It can run recent games thanks to its high-end NVIDIA Turing GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card with ray tracing which also speeds up processing. This is also the case for the powerful core combining an Octo Core i7 Comet Lake-H processor with a good amount of RAM as well as a fast SSD storage with an interesting capacity of 1 TB which enhances responsiveness. This gaming laptop PC also stands out with its backlit keyboard with Omron mechanical keys and its Wi-Fi ax and USB-C Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Gigabyte Aorus 15G WB-8FR6150MH
With its angular lines and its silver frame, it has a resolutely gamer feel. It is distinguished by the location of its webcam positioned not above the screen but below, with a cover to protect itself from prying eyes.
WindForce Infinity technology takes care of the cooling by using 2 large fans (12V, 71 blades) with 5 heat pipes as well as vents present both behind and on the sides and below.
The connectivity integrated into this relatively light gaming laptop PC is good, made up of 1 USB 3.2 Type-C Thunderbolt 3, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, practical HDMI and mini-DisplayPort video outputs to easily connect this computer to a monitor or a TV for example, audio and Ethernet ports but also 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible), guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when connecting USB 3.0 peripherals.
The keyboard can obviously be backlit, here by an RGB system, which is very practical for discerning its keys in the dark.
It stands out for the fact that it adopts Omron mechanical keys that are particularly popular with players.
To seduce the latter, the screen is adorned with a frequency of 300Hz which greatly improves fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard. With its thin edges, the screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content such as videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, it also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny panel.
The screen also reproduces colors more faithfully than average while ensuring wide vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology.
Gigabyte Aorus 15G WB-8FR6150MH performance, battery life
The Gigabyte Aorus 15G WB-8FR6150MH may appeal to those on a very comfortable budget and planning to invest in a versatile 15-inch laptop that performs well in creative-oriented gaming.
Thanks to the GeForce RTX 2070, high-end NVIDIA Turing graphics card here in Max-Q edition , this gaming laptop is capable of running recent games at a good level of detail.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time, and this by the onboard NVIDIA Optimus technology according to the tasks performed.
Optimus favors as much as possible the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor while its benefits are modest because it is energy efficient which promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Intel UHD 630. With one or the other, we can obviously watch photos and videos.
The GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q also represents an asset in terms of creation since it speeds up processing under software using GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop / Premiere.
With the same aim of speeding up processing but also games and more generally to provide great fluidity on a daily basis, Gigabyte integrates SSD storage into this Aorus.
The hard drive’s 1TB storage capacity rivals hard drives worry-free. But compared to the latter, remember that an SSD is silent, more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
Concretely thanks to the SSD, one reaches for example faster on the cards of the online games. We also benefit from much faster game / software launches, processing and start-ups / shutdowns.
And if you need more space, you can add a second SSD to the free M.2 slot.
The heart of this gaming laptop is up to the task. It delivers global power capable of appealing to demanding users, whether gamers or creators. Composed of an Octo Core i7-10875H Comet Lake-H processor and a good amount of 16 GB RAM, it supports the RTX 2070 Max-Q well in gaming.
In addition, this core guarantees much faster processing than a Quad / Hexa Core processor and 8 GB DDR4. You can really feel the difference in work requiring CPU and RAM resources that takes advantage of multicore, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering, which will be of interest to creators.
Finally with regard to the autonomy of this computer, the weight of which facilitates transport for a gaming laptop PC, bet on approximately 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
However, this computer is noisy and heats up when pushed strongly (eg games, processing).
