Found in: Gaming Laptops

The 17.3" X7 Pro v5 Series Notebook from Aorus is designed with serious gamers in mind who require the portability of a lightweight system for gaming on the go. Powered by a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7-6820HK Quad-Core processor and 16GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, the Aorus X7 Pro v5 enables you to efficiently multitask as well as quickly access frequently used files and programs. When it's crunch time and you need more performance, the CPU's core clock can reach up to 3.6 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost. Furthermore, this system can support up to 64GB of RAM, or 16GB per slot, for enhanced multitasking performance and general system operation.

Its 17.3" IPS display has a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution that provides you with crisp and clear content reproduction. As it's driven by dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX970M graphics cards, you'll be able to enable additional graphical options as well as crank up in-game visual settings to enjoy games at their best. Combined with a G-SYNC enabled display, which locks the display's refresh rate with the graphics card's frame rate output, you'll be able to enjoy minimal screen tearing, stuttering, and input lag for a smoother gaming experience.

For storage this system is equipped with a 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD and a 1TB 7200 rpm HDD. SSDs are constructed without any moving parts and can thus endure more and perform faster than a traditional hard drive. Furthermore, because it uses the PCIe interface, the SSD is able to achieve speeds of up to 2000 MB/s, roughly three to four times that of a SATA SSD. On the other hand, the larger capacity hard drive is ideal for long term storage for your multimedia files and data. Should you need more room or if you want to connect additional external storage devices, you can use its three USB 3.0 ports as well as its SD media card reader.

Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or the Killer Ethernet port for a more reliable and stable wired connection. Other integrated features include a backlit keyboard with additional macro keys, speakers, subwoofers, a microphone, a webcam, a microphone jack, and a headphone jack. The pre-installed operating system in this notebook is Windows 10 Home (64-bit).

SLI NVIDIA GeForce GTX Graphics
Equipped with dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics cards, the Aorus X7 Pro v5 will allow you to enable additional graphical options and crank up in-game visual settings so you can experience games at their best. Working in tandem, these two graphics cards are power efficient and capable of delivering the desktop-like performance required for gaming at high settings.
With NVIDIA G-SYNC, the display's refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card's frame rate output. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-Sync is reduced input lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.
One-Click Overclock
In order to provide a better gaming experience, the Aorus X7 Pro v5 features one-click overclock, which with just one click, you can adjust the CPU's core clock for higher speeds and efficiency. This allows you to experience the performance you need and conserve your battery life when you don't.
Offering better performance than its predecessor, DDR4 RAM runs at a higher speeds to provide fast and smooth system operation. It also uses less power, which in turn generates less heat in your machine so it can run longer without any overheating issues.
Using the PCIe interface, the M.2 SSD can reach speeds of up to 2000 MB/s, roughly three to four times that of a standard traditional SATA SSD. With faster speeds, you'll be able to boot up faster and quickly load files, games, and programs.
HDMI 2.0
HDMI 2.0 supports a data transfer rate of 18 Gbps, allowing it to handle 4K resolution displays running at a 60 Hz refresh rate. You'll be able to see photos, watch videos, and play games in true high definition.
USB 3.1 Type-C
You'll no longer have to struggle plugging in USB devices with the USB Type-C connector. It features a reversible interface so you can plug in connectors in either orientation. Furthermore, the USB 3.1 standard provides you with faster data transfer speeds, up to 10 Gbps as well as a charging capability of 5V at 3A.
Killer LAN Networking
Killer LAN handles your networking traffic to ensure that packets aren't dropped. You won't have to waste additional time buffering for online games, watching videos, or streaming live video chat. Additionally, paired with the Killer Network Manager, available for download online, you'll be able to optimize your network traffic to ensure your games and programs get the priority they deserve.
Keyboard Fit for Gamers
Located on the left side of the keyboard are additional keys, which provide enhanced gameplay with macro functionality. Use these to simplify routines and cast complicated spells with just one click. Furthermore, the scissors switch keyboard features backlighting, 30-key rollover, and anti-ghosting so you can game in dimly lit environments as well as execute multi-key commands without it missing a beat.
Aorus Audio
Aorus Audio provides you with four modes to choose from to enhance your listening experience. It includes profiles for games, music, movies, and meetings to increase audio accuracy and clarity for each respective application.
System Gauge
System Gauge gives you comprehensive system information so you can ensure your system is with you 100%. It includes info such as CPU and GPU loads, temperature readings, fan speeds, network conditions, and power scheme. All it takes is a simple glance to keep track of how your system is performing.
XSplit Gamecaster + Broadcaster
Bundled with the Aorus X7 v5, XSplit Gamecaster and Broadcaster lets you easily stream your gameplay to Twitch and manage social media integration for real-time chats.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
