90dBA – Motorcycle or Lawnmower

The GX60 is relatively quiet under light use, but when tasked with gaming the fans quickly spin up to compensate for rising temperatures. Fan noise is noticeable under most conditions, although never annoying. Again the powerful HD7970M discrete solution is mostly responsible for this.
