We have been using the GIGABYTE AORUS 17G Gaming Laptop for around 6 months now in the office and it hasn’t let us down yet. Not only has it handled the hundreds of headsets, keyboards, mice and other accessories we test on it, it also continues to blow us away with gaming.
Games like Metro Exodus’s Enhanced Edition play smooth as anything on Ultra across the board. VR games like the Walking Dead and Beat Saber all perform fantastically with very little drops in performance.
Assassins Creed Valhalla and Immortals Fenyx Rising play fantastically and I had to push the content on the screen to get any frame drops. I have noticed the fan can get very noisy especially during high load times so this was to be expected.
We did have to upgrade the storage by installing a Samsung 970 EVO 1 TB PCIe NVMe M.2. This was super easy to install, and we used the included SSD cooler. This added a needed boose to our internal storage for all the VR games.
Overall we are still very impressed with the GIGABYTE AORUS 17G Gaming Laptop and look forward to another 6 months of gaming. Finally, check out our site for other reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
