Gigabyte Aero 15-X9 – with RTX 2070 Max-Q ReviewPosted on 2019-02-12 11:01:13 by Thomas De Maesschalck
When Gigabyte showed us their Aero 15-X9 laptop at CES it stood out from the massive array of RTX graphics laptops we saw during the week. It was welcome that the Aero 15-X9 was a development of the Aero 15X v8 that turned out as one of our favourite laptops of 2018. The combination of Intel 6-core CPU and RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics was always going to work well but the thing that makes this potentially the single most interesting laptop that was launched at CES was the inclusion of a Microsoft Azure AI feature. This promises to optimise settings for each piece of software on the fly and without human intervention in a win-win where you gain performance and lose nothing.
