He reviews every shape and form of a laptop as well as all sorts of cool tech. You can find him sitting at his desk surrounded by a hoarder’s dream of laptops, and when he navigates his way out to civilization, you can catch him watching really bad anime or playing some kind of painfully difficult game. He’s the best at every game and he just doesn’t lose. That’s why you’ll occasionally catch his byline in Tom’s Guide, taking on the latest Souls-like challenge. With Gigabyte including the Microsoft Azure AI, the AI (if enabled) accesses the Azure cloud database and pulls previously gathered information on whatever app you’re running, in order to best optimize it.AdvertisementFor example: If you’re playing PUBG at 50 frames per second, the AI will crank up the GPU, and you’ll end up netting 60 fps.And for content creators, Azure is also compatible with everything in Adobe’s lineup, so you can get upwards of a 30 percent boost in performance while video-editing in Premiere. If the Microsoft Azure AI works as advertised, it can completely revolutionize gaming laptops.Maxing out the Aero 15 will net you an Intel Core i9-8950HK processor, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 2080 Max-Q GPU with 8GB VRAM, 32GB RAM (2 slots for 64GB) and two 2TB SSDs.The Aero 15’s black hood isn’t too elaborate, but it does have a sleek two-toned arrow cutout below it that highlights the lid’s carbon fiber design. The hinge was impressive, as it looked like it was majestically sculpted into the chassis, until I finally noticed the webcam hiding in plain sight — and it wasn’t placed well.At the very least, the Aero 15 is light and slim, weighing just under 5 pounds and measuring only 0.74 inches. It comes with with three USB 3.1 ports, one Thunderbolt 3 port, an HDMI 2.0 port, a USB Type-C / DisplayPort 1.4, a headphone jack, an SD card slot and an RJ45 port.To counterbalance the webcamon the hinge, we’re getting superthin bezels. On top of that, Aero 15’s 15.6-inch panel can be configured with a 3840 x 2160 resolution and cover 100 percent of the Adobe RGB spectrum. It didn’t look that bright in person, but in-game, a PUBG character’s backpack was sharp and colorful.Another thing I’m excited about is that Gigabyte is including fully customizable RGB lighting for each key on the keyboard. The software will also remember which keys you use the most when you play games and illuminate them for you. And it doesn’t just look gorgeous; it felt punchy and tactile as I danced my fingers all over the deck.Something long overdue is that the touchpad is finally getting Windows precision drivers, so your gestures should be more responsive and accurate.We weren’t able to fully test the audio, but Gigabyte shipping the Aero 15 with NAHIMIC 3, which will provide 7.1 virtual surround sound as well as a fully customizable equalizer.Gigabyte rated the Aero 15 to last up to 10 hours on a charge, which is unheard of for a gaming laptop. We’re interested in putting that to the test.We’ll have more details to share once we fully review and benchmark the Aero 15, but if our preview has told us anything about 2019, it’s that AI could completely change the way we game.Credit: Laptop MagWhich GPU is Right For YouWhich Laptop CPU is Right for You?The Best Gaming Laptops Rami Tabari, Rami Tabari, onlast_img read more
