Gigabyte Launches 144 Hz Aero 15 Gaming Laptops With Small Bezels
Gigabyte is working on a new series of its Aero 15 gaming laptops and it appears that the display will be a major selling point. The upcoming notebooks have a 15-inch display with small bezels and a fast display with 144 Hz refresh rate, something that is rarely seen on laptops.
Although the company did not announce full technical details of the upcoming Aero 15 and Aero 15X models, they did share a couple of teaser images, a video and a quick glance at its design. A teaser video revealed that Gigabyte will be using a GTX 1070 GPU and offer support for Dolby Atmos. The keyboard will feature n-key-rollover in order to eliminate ghosting.
The 144 Hz displays will only be available in combination with a 1080p resolution, although Gigabyte will also release other versions of the Aero 15 and Aero 15X with a 4K display at 60 Hz. Interestingly, these panels should also be able to display the full AdobeRGB spectrum. The panel technology is IPS and judging by the teaser image, the bezels are remarkably small. Other interesting features are a UHS-II SD card reader and a built-in ambient light sensor.
ASUS’s Republic of Gamers Chimera was the first laptop to feature a fast 144 Hz display, although that device is noticeably thicker and has larger bezels. The Aero 15 series have a maximum thickness of 18 millimeters.
Gigabyte will officially announce more details about their new line-up of Aero 15 laptops on April 3rd.
