If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the 15X v8-BK4 offers one 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 port that also supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-C and DisplayPort 1.2, plus one 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A port and two 5 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports. You'll also be able to output video to an external display HDMI 2.0 and mini DisplayPort 1.4 ports.

Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi are built-in for wired and wireless networking, and Bluetooth 4.2 LE technology will also allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. Content from memory cards may be accessed via a built-in SD card reader that supports UHS-II flash media. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, an internal mic, dual 2W speakers with Dolby Atmos audio, and a Gigabyte Fusion per Key RGB keyboard.

General Features
Thunderbolt 3
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
144 Hz Display
A 144 Hz refresh rate helps to eliminate stuttering and jitters, so you'll be able to enjoy smooth gameplay and react instantly to your game.
NVIDIA Optimus
NVIDIA Optimus is a computer GPU switching technology which, depending on the resource load generated by client software applications, will seamlessly switch between integrated and dedicated graphics adapters within a computer system in order to provide either maximum performance or minimum power draw from the system's graphics rendering hardware.
NVIDIA Max-Q Design
Thanks to NVIDIA's Max-Q design, GeForce GTX GPUs can be installed in laptops as thin as 0.7". It's all made possible by Max-Q, an innovative approach to designing thin, fast, and quiet gaming laptops. Everything is engineered for the thin gaming laptop experience, including the laptop, chip, drivers, thermal and electrical components, and more.
Dual M.2 2280 Slots
The Aero 15X v8-BK4 has two M.2 2280 slots, one of which supports PCIe and SATA SSDs, while the other only supports PCIe SSDs.
Up to 32GB RAM
Two DDR4 slots support 32GB of 2666 MHz RAM, or 16GB per slot.
Windows 10
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.
Cortana
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 Laptop, 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.
