Gigabyte Aorus 17G Review – with Intel Tiger Lake H!

Rating: 8.0.

The Gigabyte Aorus 17G YD is a gaming laptop that packs a mighty punch, with a combination of Intel Tiger Lake H and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, yet it sells for significantly less than £3,000. Add in a mechanical keyboard and a display panel with 300Hz refresh rate and you are potentially looking at an impressive piece of kit.
