Top brand, high spec gaming laptop.

I have one of these and it outperforms my I7-4790K and GTX 980Ti desktop.

This is a mobile powerhouse. Will play any AAA @ 1080p @ Ultra settings @ a minimum of 60fps.

Overclockable I7-6820HK CPU can outperform the desktop I7-6700K - valid.x86.fr/ben…d9l


GTX 1070 is a powerhouse of a GPU, the one inside this AORUS beats the Razer Blade with GTX 1080 in gaming and synthetic benchmarks - 3dmark.com/fs/…419 this specific laptop regularly outperforms gaming laptops with the Nvidia Max-Q GTX 1080 also.


Oh, and when I bought mine last year these were retailing at £2.2k.


With the standard desktop GTX 1070 now retailing at £600+ for a decent model and a 1440p monitor costing around £250 (this laptop has a 3K 2880x1620 WQHD+ display) , the cost of a gaming laptop with the same performance as a desktop but in a portable guise is negligible.

Here's my review of my X5V6 (I have the 1080p display rather than the 3K version, everything else is exactly the same) - forums.overclockers.co.uk/thr…26/

With these spec, but a 15 inch monitor. You probably will want an external 4k monitor for gaming which then can go for getting a desktop.
At that price they couldn't at least make it come with a 17 in!
These overheat badly. My colleague got one and then returned to scan.
I know it's overclockable & a very nice cpu but 6th gen for best part of £2k?
Is it made out of gold ?

Any of the cold voters able to demonstrate a gaming laptop with the same features for a better price?

I'm not sure a minimum of a £200 increase in price for a similar spec with the latest I7-7820HK is really justifiable?

They make the Aorus laptops in 13", 15" and 17" models.
I have the 13 inch one of these. Brilliant bit of kit if you want power on the move. They dont overheat but the fans do spin up and make loads of noise, and the speakers are a bit tinny. I have tried loads of 13 and 15 inch gaming machines - this and the Alienware R3 range win hands down for me as they are great all rounders.

I have an 17" Asus one with pretty much identical specs to this and the speakers are terrible really. Probably due to the fact it's way thinner than most 1070 laptops.
