Hands on with the Aorus X7 gaming notebook

The flagship of Gigabyte’s new gaming line of notebooks has a 17-inch screen and a sleek chassis.

Last week an unheard-of brand called Aorus began sending out invitations to journalists attending CES for a launch event for a new brand of gaming products. The invitations didn’t give any details to what the launch might be for, only promising “slim, lethal and iconic” products will be launched, under the tagline “gaming is the next evolution.”

Turns out Aorus is Gigabyte’s new line of high-end gaming notebooks.

VR-Zone’s Taiwan office received a package from Aorus with what looks to be its flagship gaming notebook — the X7.

The X7 sports a 17-inch screen, and feels slightly lighter than comparable gaming notebooks. The overall design is sleek, and the lid of the notebook sports a large Aorus logo.

For I/O ports, the X7 has a standard D-sub VGA, two HDMI ports, a mini display port, an SD card slot, and USB 3.0.

We haven’t had a chance to benchmark the machine yet, so check back soon for a full review.

More details on the launch and availability of the Aorus notebook line will be revealed at CES in January.
