Gigabyte Aorus X7 v2

 

Three SSDs, two GPUs and one Haswell processor. What's not to love?

Excellent games performance ; Innovative, fast SSDs ; Great in applications ; Slim and light design ; Punchy, well-balanced speakers

Poor battery life ; Mediocre keyboard ; Inconsistent build quality ; Very expensive ; Noisy and hot

The mid-range is crunchy withdecent depth, and the only real disappointment is the tinny high-end. We’d always recommend a headset but, at a push, the audio kit inside this machine is good enough for games – bassy but balanced, and with good volume.

Aorus X7 V2 power laptop review: Every gamer's dream

 

How's this for a gamer's dream. If there's one thing better than a decent graphics processor in a laptop, it's got to be two very decent graphics processors in the same machine. That's what the Aorus X7 v2 offers, a pair of nVidia GeForce GTX 860M...

The Aorus X7 v2 is a sturdily made all-metal gaming laptop that keeps its waistline to around 1in, even if it still tips the scales beyond 3kg. With its dual-GPU setup it proved itself the fastest gaming laptop in the group, albeit with an...

Aorus X7 v2

 

This stratospherically powerful and remarkably thin SLI gaming laptop is unsurprisingly hot and loud

Aorus X7 v2

 

If you have been searching for a gaming and desktop replacement notebook that regards compromise as a foreign concept, then your quest is at an end - consider the Aorus X7 your now found holy grail.

Superb build, Fantastic screen, Comfortable keyboard, Blisteringly great performance across the board

Aorus X7 v2 gaming notebook

 

It's got killer guts that give it excellent graphics and storage performance

Triple SSDs in RAID 0 ; Dual GPUs in SLI ; Core i7, quad-core CPU

Keyboard could stand to be more solid ; Touchpad sometimes not exact in its movements ; Big unit to accommodate

When you need speed, the Aorus X7 v2 can deliver. It has dual GPUs, triple SSDs, a quad-core CPU, and it flies. It's super-slim considering all this good stuff is inside, but it is a wide unit that can be cumbersome to transport. Basically, put this...

The Aorus X7v2 offers an unmatched level of performance and portability in an attractive eye catching design, but users will have to pay for this alluring combination.

Gigabyte Aorus X7 v2 - Fastest slim SLI gaming notebook

 

Gigabyte refreshed the Aorus X7 with a pair of the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M graphics chips for a significant boost in performance. But is top notch performance enough to keep it ahead of other new competitors? Find out how it fared in this review!

SLI graphics in a 22.9mm slim chassis ; Unique design ; Macro keys ; Sophisticated cooling system

Shallow keyboard ; Fingerprint magnet ; Reflective trackpad not practical ; Exclusion of NVIDIA Optimus affects portability and battery life

The Gigabyte Aorus X7 v2 has no match when it comes to graphics prowess as it is currently still the only slim SLI gaming laptop around. It has a gorgeous matte black finish and sexy non-conventional lines that will sure turn heads when you take it out...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Happy

 

Researched and shopped for over 6 months, knew what I was getting with this regarding performance, really satisfied

typical OS tweaks gets cold-boot startup to less than 15 sec. Able to run games in ultra with decent fps, but fans do get noisy like a small keyboard vacuum. Change game graphics down to high or customized medium to high, cap at 30fps, and fans are quiet

intel wireless-N 7260 problems, in-game latency was horrible (+1500ms). not Gigabyte/Aorus issue. updated drivers, did registry edit, but I got best performance and behavior by disabling HT Mode
