Edit media on the go with the 15.6" AERO 15 Mobile Workstation from GIGABYTE. Offering the robust functionality of modern desktops in a compact form-factor, the AERO 15 gives you the capabilities to streamline your productivity no matter where you are, making this ideal for traveling power users.

An 11th Gen 2.6 GHz Intel Core i9 processor rests at the heart of the Aero 15, along with 32GB of DDR4 RAM and dual solid-state storage drives consisting of 512GB and 1TB, working together to enhance the overall performance of your system so you can run your most important applications. NVIDIA Optimus Technology uses a unique hybrid graphics system that automatically switches between integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 and dedicated NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics to optimize productivity as well as your battery life, giving you up to 8 hours of usage between charges. Experience color accurate precision with a 15.6-inch 3810 x 2160 display using Samsung AMOLED 4K technology to produce vivid imagery and intense colorization essential for photo and video editing. An SD card slot allows you to quickly transfer photos taken with your camera for instant editing on the go. Thunderbolt 4 connectivity expands the capabilities of the Aero 15 by unlocking enhanced data transfer rates and daisy-chaining capabilities for use with storage arrays, external displays, and even workstation hubs.


The NVIDIA GPU streamlines your productivity, whether you are rendering graphically intense video or editing high-resolution photos. With 3rd Generation Max-Q Technologies, you can utilize Dynamic Boost 2.0, which leverages power between the GPU, GPU memory, and the CPU for a performance increase. Resizable BAR is an advanced PCIe feature that enables the CPU to access the entire GPU frame buffer, and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) uses GPU Tensor Cores to perform AI-based rendering. Together, these technologies optimize your system to meet the demand of resource-hungry applications.

Thermal Enhancements

While resource-heavy programs and applications could build up heat easily, GIGABYTE gave the AERO 15 an enhanced thermal solution with the exclusive WINDFORCE cooling technology. Dual 71-bladed fans, five heat pipes, and copper fins increase heat dissipation up to 30% compared to previous models.

PCIe 4.0 Capabilities

With an Intel 11th Gen CPU resting at the heart of the AERO 15, you have PCIe 4.0 enhancements, increasing the bandwidth and performance of M.2 solid-state storage drives. Able to transfer data speeds up to 7000 MB/s, you can experience improved loading times for applications and increase your productivity.

Microsoft Azure AI

Leave the fine-tuning to the onboard artificial intelligence with Microsoft Azure AI, which routes various tasks depending on individual application use. Azure AI then dynamically adjusts system parameters to meet the performance needed whether you are editing media or simply enjoying some games.

AMOLED 4K Display

Experience vivid imagery and color-accurate picture quality with the 15.6-inch Samsung AMOLED 4K display backed by 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, which produces 30% more colors than sRGB-equipped displays. This display is also VESA HDR 400 certified, ensuring proper color balancing for photos and videos. To ensure proper colorization, every AERO panel is calibrated by X-Rite technology and meets Pantone Validated certification. Additionally, you have thin, 3mm three-sided bezels that add a sense of sophistication to your display while giving you the most screen possible for an 89% screen-to-body ratio.

Inspiration to Go

Sporting a sleek full-aluminum chassis and a 99Wh battery that provides up to 8-hours of battery life, you can take your imagination on the go. To ensure the creative experience meets up to the GIGABYTE standard, each AERO workstation is compatible with all AORUS accessories including monitors, keyboards, external Gaming BOX graphic unit for enhanced productivity when you're finally at home.

NVIDIA Studio Driver

Each NVIDIA GPU is backed by free Studio Drivers that work seamlessly with app developers such as Adobe and Autodesk to improve overall program experience.


The AERO 15 includes a wide range of ports, allowing you to take advantage of external devices such as storage drives, mice, and more. Three USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports offer data transfer speeds up to 5 Gb/s, suitable for moving important information around quickly and offering ample power for resource demanding devices. A single Thunderbolt 4 port unlocks 40 Gb/s transfer speeds, external display support, and daisy-chain capabilities, allowing you to access multiple devices such as storage arrays. HDMI 2.1 and mini DP 1.4 outputs allow you to display your work on larger monitors or expand your workspace. Listen to music and take part in calls with the 3.5mm combo audio jack. Quickly transfer photos from your camera and edit them immediately with the UHS-II SD Card Reader.


Whether you are out and about or within a secure business environment, the AERO 15 offers Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) networking, giving you wireless connectivity as well as enhanced upload and download speeds. A single 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port is also available if you prefer a wired network connection.

Professional-Grade Features

GIGABYTE added a display bezel bumper that protects the display by mitigating damage in case of impact. The integrated user-facing camera includes a sliding cover so you can ensure privacy when most needed. A Windows precision touchpad supports multiple touch points and contains a built-in fingerprint reader sensor for Windows Hello for an added layer of security. Along with faster startup speeds, enhanced multitasking capabilities, and prolonged battery life, the AERO 15 earned the Microsoft Modern PC certification, making this an ideal business companion.

GIGABYTE Fusion Keyboard

Customize your backlighting with 16.7 million colors, giving your keyboard a sense of personality. N-key rollover ensures that every button pressed counts, and per-key macro function allows you to customize various button presses to simplify advanced processes.

DTS:X Sound

Immerse yourself in your streaming media or your games with integrated DTS:X Cinema-Grade Sound. Virtual 7.1-channel surround sound produces high-quality audio whether you are watching a movie or taking part in a conference call. Two-way AI noise cancelation removes noise from incoming and outgoing audio for a clear audio experience when chatting with friends and family.
