Found in: Gaming Laptops

The 17.3" P37X v5 Series Notebook from Gigabyte comes equipped with an Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad-core processor and Windows 10 Home. The 6th-generation Skylake processor sports a base speed of 2.6 GHz and can achieve speeds of up to 3.5 GHz while running demanding applications. Furthermore, the notebook features 8GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM that can be upgraded to a max of 32GB, or 16GB per slot. For storage, it has a 1TB 7200rpm hard drive that provides ample room for all your data, games, and programs.

The 17.3" display supports a maximum resolution of up to 3840 x 2160 and comes with an IPS panel that provides wide-viewing angles and accurate colors. Visuals are powered by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M graphics card with 8GB of dedicated video memory. The card supports NVIDIA Optimus technology, which intelligently optimizes the notebook's battery life by switching between Intel's integrated HD 530 graphics for playing movies and NVIDIA's dedicated graphics card for rendering 3D images. To expand the on-screen workspace, it offers HDMI, mini-DisplayPort, and VGA ports.

Gigabyte has outfitted this notebook with three USB 3.0 ports as well as a single USB 3.1 Type-C port that transfers data at a rate of 10 Gb/s. The built-in SD card reader is another way to transfer photos from a digital camera. For network connectivity, a Gigabit Ethernet port provides a reliable connection and an 802.11ac Wi-Fi module offers wireless access. Another integrated wireless technology is Bluetooth 4.1 that allows you to pair headsets or mice. Other notable hardware included in the P37 notebook are a webcam, DVD burner, and microphone as well as two 1.5W speakers.

P37X Features

Discrete Graphics
The P37X features an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 video memory, offering fast rendering of detailed effects without compromising on system performance. This dedicated graphics card provides more FPS with lighting effect, motion blur, and texture filtering checked at high. Additionally, it comes with Battery Boost 2.0 technology that delivers 30% more battery life at the same frame rate when compared to other technologies.
NVIDIA Optimus Technology
With NVIDIA Optimus technology, the system will automatically switch between its dedicated and integrated graphics cards to suit the current application to provide you with either performance or lower power consumption.
Slim Chassis
Gigabyte provides gaming performance in a 0.89" thick chassis, which weighs 6.17lb.
Macro Function
The P37X includes Macro keys and macro hub functions so you can create key combinations for complicated operations. With rapid responses of Macro Keys, you can trigger numerous attacks simultaneously, ensuring dominance in the field.
Supra-Cool Technology
Supra-Cool technology comes with two heat pipes as well as two fans for cooling the processor and dedicated graphics card, providing high thermal conductivity for cooling. This technology enables you to run the CPU and GPU at maximum performance with stability.
Fan Tweak
Fan Tweak is designed with system stability in mind. All modes (except Max Fan) feature automatic progressive fan-speed control, which monitors different user sessions for optimal cooling scenarios. A relatively higher initial fan speed manages the buildup of heat during heavy sessions; and lower-speed steps are available for a tranquil experience whenever the chassis temperature drops to a set level.
Quad-Storage System
The P37X supports up to two mSATA SSDs and two HDDs, delivering fast speed and massive storage options. In addition, you can configure the drives in a RAID 0 mode, which enhances the drive's read and write speeds.
Hot-Swappable Drive Bay
Gigabyte has outfitted the P37X notebook with a hot-swappable drive bay that can house the included DVD drive or an optional hard drive or DVD drive. You can also utilize a weight-saver module to make the P37X lighter.
IPS Display
The IPS display grants wide-viewing angles and renders vivid color so you can share your gaming experience with your partners.
UHD/4K Ready: Mini DisplayPort Out
The P37X comes with a built-in mini DisplayPort that is capable of outputting 4K visuals to an external display at 60 Hz.
Dolby Digital Plus
Dolby Digital Plus creates a realistic game-play environment that lets you hear every window smash, feel every explosion, and experience every wipeout as if they're really happening. Surround Virtualizer provides a virtualized surround-sound experience of stereo or multichannel content over built-in speakers or over headphones. Whether you're playing games, watching Blu-ray movies, or streaming videos, your P37X is a multi-entertainment hub when it has advanced Dolby Digital Plus.
Auto-Adjust Backlit Keyboard
The P37 comes with a light-sensing backlit keyboard, which adjusts the light emitted dependent on the environment, providing trouble-free typing or gaming in dimly lit conditions.
Additional Features
  • 802.11ac - 40 to 70% faster than 802.11n
  • LAN Optimizer - boosts your network speed by as much as two times while online gaming and surfing the web
  • LockWin Key - disables the Windows key to prevent interruptions when gaming

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.
