Got it from Wootware, so local.
I haven't weighed it, but it's heavy... I'd estimate around 2.5kg - 3.0kg
i7 - 10870H
32gb DDR4 2933MHz
RTX 3070 115w - the nVidia control panel lists it as 130w, so includes the 15w dynamic boost.
512gb NVMe SSD - 1 spare NVMe port for expansion.
Quick writeup for any concerned.
I got my Aorus 15P XC on Friday. I don't have much in the way of games to test the hardware, but here's my experience so far:
Star Trek Online -> 150 - 180 fps -> Maxed settings
Genshin Impact -> 60 fps (locked sadly) -> Maxed settings
Cyberpunk 2077 -> 62 fps...
Very much the case.
As such, one of the most important things to me is thermals. Cooler running in theory should mean better lasting so I bought a cooler pad just to try and help.
They don't seem to make the largest difference, but where reviewers did thermal testing with and without the...
The one common thing I have read about the Gigabyte laptops, is their poor hinges. Most complaints I've seen for the Aorus range is the screen wobble.
Thanks for the word of caution - based on what I've read so far, I'll be more cautious around the opening/closing of the lid anyways.
It was a choice between the two.
Yes I could have built a better desktop for the same price, but there were other factors (travel, portability).
After some lengthy discussions, my conclusion was why not try it once. When my next upgrade cycle comes, I can always change back to a desktop or...
This is my first foray into gaming laptops, and wanted to try and get something that would last 5yrs. There is a notable voice urging people to shy away from Intel and move to the superior AMD processors (3rd and 4th gen). If you plan on using any gaming laptop for productivity...
Wootware and Comutermania also have pricing up for some 30 series laptops.
I've ordered an Aorus 15P XC. When I get it, I can answer any questions I'm able to.
To start, it is the 115w variant (confirmed by wootware and the little bit of info I could find on this model through Google).
Are you able to share or PM me the company you're dealing with?
I have been scouring the internet looking for local pricing/availability and was at the point where I was just going to order from Amazon....
Can anyone help me out with contact details for any company in KZN that handles the scrapping of old PC's/Laptops/Printers?
Throughout my company's time, they have seemingly accumulated a wealth of old hardware that is now mostly dead.
I would prefer to use a company as I would gather...
Tad late on the response...
There are 3 ways to get the keys to open the chests
1) Buy with real money from the Zen store
2) Buy with Astral Diamonds (earned by doing mostly endgame - lvl 60+ - stuff) from the auction house
3) Convert Astral Diamonds into Zen via the ingame Zen-to-Astral...
I'm on the verge of ordering the Roccat Sova, but first wanted to ask if anyone had another recommendation or any other info that would help in my decision making?
I've looked at the Razer Turret, Corsair Lapdog and the Sova, ultimately deciding on the Sova (4m cable should be more...
I thought it may be better to start a fresh thread, rather than necro the old one, as from what I've read a lot has changed since the launch of the game.
So is anyone currently playing this? Are there any local guilds, or other EU guilds worth joining?
If there are any...
The Beta for this game opens a little later this month, and bar hearing what people lucky enough to get in have to say, is anyone else keeping an eye on this game?
My worry is that it's Ubisoft again, who has still left me with a bitter taste after the whole Watchdogs "incident".
Apologies if this has been asked/answered before.
So I took the plunge and am running Unotelly to 'unlock' a lot more content via Netflix... I'm new to all of this.
My actual question: Does Unotelly offer a free sport streaming in its ~300 channel offering?
An order was placed for the Title mentioned unit, which ended up being just for the inverter, with no battery pack.
1) Can anyone give me rough dimensions of a 24V battery? We have casings, but not sure they could house a 24V battery.
2) In line with the rest of our...
Please help me out if possible.
Long story short, I have a laptop with Windows 8.1 pre-installed on it. The guy that bought it, also bought a Win 8 pro upgrade kit. Stressing Win 8... not 8.1.
Generally the "card" upgrades are just a feature unlock mechanism within windows.
