The Gigabyte Aorus 15P WB-7FR1130SH faces the competition
The Gigabyte Aorus 15P WB-7FR1130SH is currently displayed in promotion inside Cybertek i GrosBill. It offers an attractive configuration / price ratio for its category, where the competition is very limited and is one of the few that offers such a powerful graphics card in such a light chassis.
Chassis, connectors, Gigabyte Aorus 15P WB-7FR1130SH screen
With its silver-gray chassis with black accents, it features an original player design while adopting the codes of the genre with its angular lines.
Keep in mind that the webcam does not take place above the screen as usual, but below and has a sliding physical cache system to protect privacy.
Its cooling is provided by WindForce Infinity technology that combines 2 large fans (12 V, 71 blades) with 5 heat tubes (3 dedicated to CPU and GPU) and 4 air vents.
This gaming laptop is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB-C, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules (more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect wirelessly, its convenient HDMI and Mini-DisplayPort video outputs for easy connection to a monitor or TV, for example, its Ethernet and audio ports, as well as its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
Its chiclet keyboard can be backlit, here using an RGB system, which is handy for distinguishing your keys in the dark.
The screen will be of interest to gamers because it is adorned with a refresh rate of 144Hz which improves the fluidity of the games compared to the standard 60Hz. It also lends itself well to displaying high definition content, such as videos, due to its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 aspect ratio. Because it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment ( for example, on the outside) than a glossy panel. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also reproduces colors more accurately than average, while ensuring wide viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical.
Performance, autonomy of the Gigabyte Aorus 15P WB-7FR1130SH
The Gigabyte Aorus 15P WB-7FR1130SH may be of interest to those who want to purchase a versatile 15-inch laptop in gaming and creation-oriented.
As it incorporates the NVIDIA Turing GeForce RTX 2070 with ray tracing, a high-end dedicated graphics card in the Max-Q edition, it is capable of running the latest games that require graphics resources.
Depending on the tasks performed, the integrated NVIDIA Optimus technology automatically switches in real time between the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q and the processor-integrated Intel UHD 630 solution.
Optimus uses Intel UHD 630 as much as possible despite its very modest advantages, as it consumes little power and therefore promotes autonomy. In this area, opt for about 6 hours of battery life in light use.
The GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q is practically enabled by Optimus to perform graphics processes considered too heavy for Intel UHD 630. With one or the other, we can obviously see photos and videos.
In addition, under software that uses the computing power of the GPU (e.g. Adobe Photoshop / Premiere, Sony Vegas), processing is accelerated with the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q, which will appeal to creative people.
The GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q is well compatible with base games that are based on an Intel HM470 chipset, a Hexa Core i7-10750H Comet Lake-H processor, and a good amount of 16GB of RAM.
In practice, demanding users will be satisfied with the overall power provided by this PC.
The creators, in particular, will appreciate that these components provide much faster processing times than with a quad-core, 8GB DDR4 processor, with the difference being especially significant in areas that require CPU and RAM and take advantage of multiple kernels, such as editing. of photos, video editing or 3D rendering.
On the other hand, it should be noted that the contribution of the Hexa Core is variable in games compared to the Quad Core.
In any case, thanks to the built-in SSD storage, the responsiveness and fluidity are superior to the same configuration based on a hard drive.
Because an SSD is much faster than a hard drive, but it is also more energy efficient, more shock resistant and quieter.
Specifically, thanks to the SSD, we take advantage of much faster starts / stops, games / programs and processing releases, or even a faster arrival to the cards of online games.
Best known price: 1439 €
The 512 GB capacity of the SSD is similar to the standard hard drives. But if it’s too tight, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device for fast transfers. An M.2 slot is also free to add a second SSD.
Finally, if its contents are easy to transport, keep in mind that this gaming laptop heats up when used a lot (for example: games, treatments), to the point that we will avoid using it on our knees or a Nordic in gourmet games for example.
If it is heard in the same conditions, the noise it generates is controlled for a computer designed for players.
A ventilated rack can be used to hold temperatures (Remember in this case to check the dimensions!).
