The laptop market has in recent years, become the ultimate battleground for major laptop manufacturers. Every year, new models come out with the latest and fastest CPUs and graphics cards. However, regardless of CPU and monitor upgrades, players who want a more tactile experience are unimpressed with traditional laptop keyboards. GIGABYTE sought to answer the challenge and delivered what IGN has called "The future of gaming..."
World leader in premium pro-eSports laptops, GIGABYTE’s AORUS brings mechanical keyboards into play and redefined the gaming laptop world with ultra-light, high touch, and stunning visual displays.
With half the weight and half the thickness, GIGABYTE redefines what it means to be a gaming laptop!
In the past, laptop manufacturers used membrane keyboards to lessen the bulk. This has resulted in unresponsive keyboards and failure rates that gamers who value the gaming experience despise. Some even purchase separate mechanical keyboards and forgo laptop keyboards altogether.
the register speed of AORUS laptop keyboards are 20% faster compared to those of normal laptop keyboards
GIGABYTE is proud of it's reputation for being detail oriented and quality driven, that's why we partnered with world renowned Japanese mechanical switch provider, OMRON. GIGABYTE launched the AORUS 17X, AORUS 17G, and AORUS 15G pro gaming laptops on 2nd April, 2020. Featuring 1.6mm actuation point and sensational tactile feel, the register speed of AORUS laptop keyboards are 20% faster compared to those of normal laptop keyboards, giving users a crucial in-game advantage. With the AORUS 15G weighing in at 4.4 lbs and only 2.5 cm thick, it is 51% lighter than other laptops carrying mechanical keyboards and is 50% thinner. As the world’s lightest and most compact mechanical keyboard laptop, the AORUS 15G aims to be a true professional and portable gaming laptop.
Innovation comes with a price.
Mechanical keyboards on laptops are rare and still on the pricey side, here's why: mechanical keyboards utilize independent mechanical parts in order to maintain tactile feel and accelerate signal transmission. Blue and brown switch keyboards adopt a key height of 3mm to 4mm, and provide feedback that membrane keyboards with the key height of only 2mm will never be able to match. That is why mechanical keyboards are relatively thick and heavy, weighing around 1.5 kg, and this is another reason why laptop manufacturers are reluctant to produce mechanical keyboard laptops. It was not until 2015 that manufacturers started producing mechanical keyboard laptops. The result was a 4.56 kg, 5mm thick laptop that cost a fortune. There was a lack of progress in the thickness and weight of mechanical keyboard laptop development until GIGABYTE launched its AORUS 15G.
The all-new AORUS 17X, AORUS 17G and AORUS 15G are light and compact, yet does not make compromises when it comes to performance. Equipped with 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 CPU, NVIDIA® RTX 2080 SUPER™, 240Hz refresh rate display, international tournament standard display specifications, and GIGABYTE’s exclusive WINDFORCE Infinity cooling technology, AORUS lets gamers experience gaming in the highest graphic settings.
