The closest we’ve tested in terms of raw power is the Asus ROG Flow X13 with its external 150W RTX 3080 8GB eGPU. The Ryzen 9 5980HS in that machine trumps this machine when it comes to CPU encoding (see X264 graph) and CPU rendering (Cinebench graph)—let’s face it, the red team knows how to make a processor sing—but the Aorus utterly owns it in gaming performance. Gigabyte has managed to imbue this bad boy with heaps of gaming potential with no external GPU necessary.

The Slimmest Gaming Laptop with Mechanical Keyboard
With 2.5mm key travel, packed in a thin chassis of less than 1-inch, and a mere weight of 4.85-lbs: The AORUS 15G breaks the norm of conventional thick, heavy mechanical keyboard laptops. Gamers will notice the superior ultra-durable construction and remarkable key actions, without feeling weighed down. Don’t just take our word for it. It’s approved and certified by the G2 Esports team to be their ultimate weapon of choice for games like CS:GO.
With the AORUS 15G, you get more details and more realism with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Max-Q graphics card, based on NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture with real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading.
What good is power without the ability to control it? The AORUS 15G comes with groundbreaking Microsoft Azure AI technology. Artificial intelligence will recognize the game the system is running and dynamically optimize the best CPU and GPU power settings for the smoothest and long-lasting gaming performance while on battery. No adjustments are necessary as everything is done automatically, giving you complete focus on the game.
