The Gigabyte and 15G is a beautifully designed gaming machine, with a CNC-sculpted chassis and airy models, a good sign for iconic racing cars.
The latest and greatest technology comes under the hood, including Intel 10th Gen Power, and Microsoft Azure AI technology – designed to use artificial intelligence (AI) to maximize your gaming experience.

All of this makes the Auro 15G sound appealing, but what does it actually use as a gaming laptop? We were playing with this machine for two weeks to find out.
Ars is a trademark of Gigabyte Corporation and has been promoted as the “enthusiast’s choice” for PC games. Under this banner, Arous has created a premium gaming machine and machine that adds a lot of power to an easy-to-use framework.
Certainly, it may not be as thin or light like other compact laptops we’ve tested, but the Aorus 15G is still a force to be reconciled with.
First of all, the screen options are really fun. The 15.6 inch 1080p screen comes in 144Hz or 240Hz variants. It is a great looking screen which is a pleasure to play and looks great from every angle. It is rich, vibrant and responsive. It is bright enough to be used outdoors in daylight. You’ll see from the images that the screen is almost bezel-free, resulting in an impressive edge-to-edge screen.
Second, the Aorus 15G combines Microsoft Azure AI technology. It uses artificial intelligence to automatically adjust power modes for both CPUs and GPUs depending on what you’re doing – thereby improving gaming performance and increasing frames per second. With Gigabyte’s controls, you can adjust fan speed as well, and adjust it quickly, but the combination of manual and automatic settings means you get the best performance while gaming without the need to interfere Have to get.
Outside of gaming, this laptop is also designed to help you get out of your day. It has a battery that lasts for eight hours (depending on the brightness of the screen and the brightness of the keyboard). We found that it made us well through the work day without any hassle – which is quite rare for a gaming-focused machine.
As you expect, Gigabyte Aorus 15G is available in many variants and specifications. It also includes Intel’s 10th generation CPU options and Nvidia’s RTX graphics card – premium variants of these GPUs.
There is no indication of traditional HDD or SSD storage here, you just need to get fast NVMe quality. This means faster boot time and great game loading speed. The model we’ve tested comes with a non-rated NVMe SSD and has a slot for additional models if you want to upgrade for more storage.
It also has a Windforce Infinity cooling system which is better than the previous models. It is equipped with four nozzles, five heat pipes and double fans.
The speed of these fans is adjustable in the program or with the click of a button on the keyboard. We must say, however, that we soon discovered that while playing the game, fan noise was too high when relying on speakers, so the sound of gaming often vanished. Fans don’t necessarily hear the loudest we’ve ever heard, but they beat out loud laptop speakers.
There are more than enough ports to plug into your gaming headset – and we recommend you do so because the built-in microphone isn’t great either.
Cooling is good enough to ensure a good gaming experience and great performance, but we noted that if you play with the Eros 15G on your lap, it gets incredibly hot under pressure. The bottom of the machine is like an oven after about an hour or so of playing. So stick to these skins! The keyboard and top of the device do not bother you as soon as the heat comes.
This laptop does not disappoint in terms of performance. We ran several 3DMark benchmarks in addition to Borderlands 3 (which averaged 128 fps). Many other gaming experiences had mixed (but decent) results: the Star Wars Jedi Fallen order ran at just 144 Hz and refused to accept a 240Hz screen – but it was still 100 frames per second for cutting and in standard gameplay Managed at around 80fps. Fewer games like Worms W.M.D managed to manage 240 frames per second.
If you play CS: Go or other competitive but non-tax games, you are likely to warrant a 240Hz screen. But if you plan to play Triple A titles and more blind games, we would suggest that the 144Hz panel would be the most appropriate option. Even with the RTX 2070, we would hardly expect to see frame rates high enough to warrant a higher rate option.
Unlike the thinner and more compact gaming laptop, the Aorus 15G does not disappoint in terms of available ports. It has multiple USB connections on either side of the device – a lot to connect with headphones, mouse and keyboard. There are also simple things like an Ethernet socket and a convenient SD card reader.
The combination of HDMI and Mini DisplayPort connections is also easy to reject to an external gaming monitor or VR headset. We just did it spontaneously by giving power to our big 34 ” 1440p laptop screen. We also noticed a frame rate drop while doing this, indicating the sheer strength of this device.
Oddly this aspect of Wi-Fi was found to be unstable with some vibrations as standard things such as browsing the web or watching videos caused unnecessary slow-down experience and buffering. We think this is most likely a software issue – as it had no negative effect when playing online with friends and we did not notice any latency or lag issues. Connected to Ethernet and the connection is clearly more stable
