However, it seems that they have skipped out on the new CPU trend, which is Tiger Lake, deciding to stick to the tried and true Core i7-10870H, which might not have the highest computational performance and benchmark scores, but does wonders when it comes to gaming.
Today we are presenting you with LaptopMedia’s top 5 picks about the GIGABYTE AORUS 15G (RTX 30).
4 reasons to BUY the GIGABYTE AORUS 15G (RTX 30)
1. Display quality
When thinking of what this laptop could be fantastic at, creativity certainly wasn’t one of them. However, this display is just fantastic. The 15.6-inch Full HD IPS unit provides excellent viewing angles, 310 nits of max brightness in the middle of the panel, 288 nits as an average for the entire display area, and a maximum deviation of 10%. The laptop performs well in a uniform perspective and has a contrast ratio of 1120:1.
Furthermore, you get 99% sRGB coverage.
The color accuracy was also fantastic straight out of the box, with our test showing a dE value of 0.8. That didn’t stop us however from applying our Design and Gaming profile, which brought it down further to 0.5. Below you can compare the results with both the factory settings (left) and with our Design and Gaming profile (right).

Además de recibir perfiles eficientes y respetuosos con la salud, al comprar los productos de LaptopMedia también apoyas el desarrollo de nuestros laboratorios, donde probamos los dispositivos para elaborar las reseñas más objetivas posibles.
Trabajo de oficina
El perfil Trabajo de Oficina debería ser utilizado sobre todo por usuarios que pasan la mayor parte del tiempo mirando trozos de texto, tablas o simplemente navegando. Este perfil pretende ofrecer una mayor nitidez y claridad manteniendo una curva de gamma plana (2,20), una temperatura de color nativa y colores perceptualmente precisos.
Diseño y juego
Este perfil está dirigido a los diseñadores que trabajan con los colores de forma profesional, y también para juegos y películas. Design and Gaming lleva a los paneles de visualización a sus límites, haciéndolos tan precisos como sea posible en el estándar sRGB IEC61966-2-1 para Web y HDTV, en el punto blanco D65.
Salud-Guardia elimina la perjudicial Modulación de Ancho de Pulso (PWM) y reduce la luz azul negativa que afecta a nuestros ojos y a nuestro cuerpo. Al estar adaptado a cada panel, consigue mantener los colores perceptivamente precisos. Salud-Guardia simula el papel, por lo que la presión sobre los ojos se reduce considerablemente.
Being a gaming laptop, the AORUS 15G offers fantastic upgradeability, with there being two SODIMM RAM slots, which can handle up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM in dual-channel mode, and two M.2 PCIe x4 slots.
Here is our detailed teardown video, which shows exactly how to access both the RAM and SSD slots.
3. Input devices
You get a great keyboard with fantastic qualities. Yes, it is not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but still offers long key travel and clicky feedback. It also has a per-key RGB backlight. Now, the keys are smaller than we would have loved, and the arrow keys are pretty stuffed between next to the NumPad, making accidental presses inevitable. The touchpad doesn’t come with dedicated physical buttons, but the clicking mechanism inside seems to work well. The pad itself offered accurate tracking.
The I/O features a variety of ports, including a total of three USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports, one USB Type-C 3.2 (Gen. 1) port, a Mini DisplayPort 1.4, an HDMI 2.1 connector, a 3.5mm audio jack, an RJ-45 connector, and an SD card reader. The laptop does lack Thunderbolt 3 support, which is a bummer.
1 reason NOT to buy the GIGABYTE AORUS 15G (RTX 30)
1. Design and build quality
The design is okay, but the entirely plastic body just doesn’t sit right with a laptop that costs that much. You get a sleek front, with an aggressive rear, which is becoming the standard with gaming laptops, mimicking the design culture of sports cars. The entire laptop has a boxy shape, with aggressive heat vents, and a metallic AORUS eagle logo on the lid. In terms of weight and height, this machine is pretty portable, especially considering the hardware inside and the cooling that has to keep it in check. The laptop weighs 2.00 kg while being 23 mm tall.
