The 15P XC manages to display all current games smoothly thanks to its octa-core Core i7-10870H CPU and its GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU. There are no compromises – Gigabyte has set the GPU’s TGP to 130 Watt, which means it is almost operating at its maximum capacity (140 Watt).

Gigabyte has created a well-rounded gaming notebook with lots of computing power – the Aorus 15P XC.

Strong CPU, strong GPU, 32 GB of RAM (2x 16 GB, dual-channel mode, max. 64 GB) – but only one 512-GB SSD. The storage capacity is not particularly generous for a gaming notebook. Many buyers will have to expand storage sooner or later. This should not pose a big problem as the notebook has a second slot available for an additional NVMe SSD.

The display (FHD, IPS, 240 Hz) has stable viewing angles, a matte surface, short response rates, decent color space coverage, and – thanks to its Pantone certification – great color accuracy. The maximum brightness is too low, however, for a notebook in this price range in particular. The keyboard (RGB backlighting) is suitable for everyday use and the battery life is good with one charge lasting about 6 to 7 hours of normal use.
