A new era of graphics
New series of graphic cards Especially advanced for laptops is officially released to the world - and we received a fresh model from AORUS that contains the RTX 3070 To understand how much graphic power can be compressed into a compact package
Ampere Architecture NVIDIA Finally comes to laptops and today can officially be purchased for laptops based on these graphics cores. architecture This, to remind you, started its way with the advanced graphics cards from models GeForce RTX 3080 andRTX 3090 as particularly prestigious products. Of course in light of the situation and a few months later, the status of prestige and exclusivity of these products did not fade, mainly due to shortages in stock and extreme price increases.
At a special event she held NVIDIA A few weeks ago the new video cards for laptops were announced that will replace the RTX 20 series there as well. First and foremost we see graphic cards Like the RTX 3070 get a laptop version. Admittedly, it is important to know that there is no clear indication as to how much graphic power you will get, as it very much depends on the manufacturer of it מחשב נייד And within the heat constraints he imposed on the graphic core.
Each video card from the three general models launched today has two versions, one is Max-Q and one is Max-P. The Max-P version is the one with the higher performance while the Max-Q version is the one with the lower heat envelope. For example, theRTX The 3070 Max-P will be able to stay in a 115W heat envelope for as long as a normal temperature allows, while the Max-Q version will reduce the heat envelope to 80W in prolonged use. When it comes to short-term graphical efforts, it can be seen that the heat envelope reaches 140 W for both. Sometimes there are tasks that need graphic power for the short term and here turbo technology comes into play.
Aside from the power limitations, there is also a small technical difference between these two types when the Max-P includes זיכרון GDDR6 At 14Gbps speeds and the Max-Q includes a slower one of 12Gbps. Still, it is important to remember that heat dissipation and power consumption of graphic memory are also considered.
The AORUS brand is a fairly serious gaming brand belonging to the major hardware manufacturer GIGABYTE. It is a brand that we know mostly from the world of video cards, but also exists in the world of the company's laptops. AORUS is designed net for gamers and every AORUS product carries such features. The AORUS 15P is מחשב נייד Launched some time ago with older hardware such as a series RTX 20 and now gets a refresh with the arrival of the new video cards.
Here are the details about the laptop in this review:
- Processor: Core i7 10870H 8 Core
- Memory: DDR4 SODIMM 3200MHz 16GBx2
- Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Max-P
- Screen size: 15.6 inches
- Display Features: FullHD 1920X1080, 240Hz, IPS Mat
- Storage: NVMe SSD 512GB PCIE 3.0
- Operating System: Windows Professional 10
- Weight: 2.2 kg
This computer can come in configurations זיכרון Miscellaneous, the one that we specifically came with 32GB. This computer with this configuration is sold in Israel at a recommended price to the consumer (sitting? Where) of about ten thousand shekels. The RTX 30 cards are not only exclusive and rare in the desktop form, but also in the mobile form and this is reflected in the computer Mobile It.
Through the official importer, this computer is sold in Israel with a keyboard in Hebrew (laser engraving) and English. The keyboard is full and also includes Numpad. This keyboard is illuminated by lighting RGB Programmed control will be of the membrane type.
Unlike what we are used to seeing in the past, GIGABYTE Maintains a very modest profile with its AORUS 15P. The whole is painted in matte black with the eagle logo, which also contains bulbs RGB Controlled (can also always be turned off). Important note to note - the screen can be opened with one hand, the bottom of the computer will not be pulled up.
On the left side of the computer we find a 2.5Gbps network port, integrated headphone and microphone jack, USB 3 5Gbps Type-A port, Mini port DisplayPort 1.4 and EXIT HDMI In the newest 2.1 standard. In the part closer to the axis there are openings for hot air outlet.
In terms of export interfaces, theAORUS Pretty successful 15P. I will also have to drop a dot on the socket of the claim which is located in a somewhat strange and uncomfortable place of the middle of the side part and not behind or close to one of the corners. Everything else - sugar.
The AORUS 15P has a fairly large mouse pad with the right and left buttons of the past embedded in its lower right and left bottom. In terms of smoothness this surface feels superb, just like a screen of Unlocked New advanced from the packaging. The coefficient of friction is high and the finger really slides comfortably. My favorite part of the touchpad is the surface and the finger slide, the least favorite part has to be the click of a right or left button, which due to the smoothness of the surface can be a little uncomfortable. I was happy with the buttons dedicated for right and left, anyway.
The keyboard itself is a fairly standard membrane keyboard. It is significantly higher quality than those you will find in computers Mobile Cheap, for clarification. Pressing keys with a lot of power will not cause the keyboard to concave, as there is a particularly strong metal chassis underneath. The keys feel great and the spacing is quite satisfying. For a 15.6-inch computer this is more or less an optimal mode for a keyboard, especially when it comes to a gaming computer. The only way I see improvement is the use of mechanical keys, but given the thickness of the computer and the fact that it also has a Numpad, the keyboard is quite decent.
Above the keyboard is the webcam. The location is interesting, since we are usually used to seeing it at the top or bottom of the screen itself. GIGABYTE Decided that she wanted a screen with a thin frame and that you had a webcam to place at the bottom of the laptop. You can hide the camera, which is a nice feature. The only problem is that sometimes the shooting angle will be a little weird, and the user may look a little big and threatening from it.
Airflow is a very important part of the design of this computer, and this is seen with the impressive amount of air vents on both the sides and rear. Now the question arises, where does fresh air come from?
A very serious part of the bottom of this computer is completely ventilated with Network For dust filtration. The cooling system draws fresh air from under this computer that enters under the computer. The computer legs are at a fairly proper height to allow fresh air to enter easily.
Here is a look under the hood to understand what makes up this gaming machine. It always fascinates me anew to see how laptop hardware continues to progress over the years as I see more and more compression of power in smaller areas. Under the lid is, among other things, the huge 99 Wh battery that is in the computer Mobile It.
At the top you can see the integrated cooling system that includes the powerful graphics core (right) and the octa-core Core i7 10870H core processor of Intel. This cooling system includes copper tubes common to both the processor and the video card in order to dissipate the heat most efficiently and balance the thermal load. In the center of the image with the small square heat sink sits the HM470's chipset Intel.
At this point it is very important to me to note that opening the computer was done easily by removing a number of TORX screws and lifting the lid carefully. When it comes to access to components for the needs of upgrading theAORUS 15P gets maximum score.
The SSD drive that came with the computer is shown on the right and is a Kingston result. Specifically, this is a 512GB NVMe drive. Above it you can see the WiFi and Bluetooth card. This computer supports AX200 WiFi standard. On the left there are two result memory sticks Crucial With a total capacity of 32GB. On this computer the memory speed is 3200Mhz in the main CL22 timing.
To the left of the battery you can see another M.2 interface to the drive SSD For expansion. It is important to note that there is no heat sink dedicated on this computer to cool the drives.SSD So this drive should come with a body Cooling Flatter on it to quarantine the main cover of the computer.
Of course you have to blow with the screen. The quality of the display itself does not come to break records, this is a fairly decent IPS screen with a 1920X1080 resolution that is respectable and sharp enough for a 15.6-inch monitor, especially when it comes to gaming. What is special about this specific display is that it supports a particularly pampering refresh rate of 240Hz which means up to 240 frames are displayed per second. This is one of the salient features of מחשב נייד That, and the price tag embodies this well.
The package with the AORUS 15P also comes with the power supply used for charging at a maximum power of 230W. To remind you, this is a higher power than is possible in the standard USB Type-C Therefore a dedicated connector is used.
It's time to move on to the technical part to know how fast מחשב נייד This, especially in the face of stationary solutions on the next page.
