A laptop that stands out from the rest

Gigabyte AERO 17 XE5-73ES738HP

Gigabyte AERO 17 XE5-73ES738HP looks great

Without great peculiarities in its aesthetics or the use of RGB lighting that is so common in the world of gaming equipment, here this computer will stand out from any conventional laptop in stores thanks to its maximum elegance that mixes silver gray tones for all its structure and fine lines no matter what angle you look at it from.

Logically Gigabyte AERO 17 XE5-73ES738HP is not the lightest or most compact device when it comes to carrying it with you if you take into account that its screen exceeds 17 inches, but in the end its official dimensions of 39.62 x 24.13 x 2.34 cm with a total weight of 2.6 kilograms are well received for use in the office or at home.

If the laptop is seen from a frontal position, it highlights a maximum reduction of the bezels that surround its screen, more precisely with just 3 mm thickness on its four sides to guarantee immersion when viewing content. There is also backlighting for its keys (in white) so there will be no problem continuing to type in the dark.

Choice of upgraded hardware

One of the great points in favor of the analysis of this computer rests on its screen, since it is not only larger than usual with a total of 17.3 inches, but it also adds a native UHD resolution, or whatever it is. the same as 3840 x 2160 pixels with a 16:10 aspect ratio . Its mini-LED IPS panel includes VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification, maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz, X-Rite, factory calibration and Pantone standard for color accuracy validation.

If to this is added the inclusion of an Intel Core i7-12700H processor (eight cores at a frequency of 2.3 GHz with TurboBoost up to 4.7 GHz) and a total of 16 GB of DDR5 RAM at 4800 MHz and internal storage of 2 TB in PCIe Gen4 SSD format , it is clear that it is not only a model capable of supporting gaming activities but also for creating and editing multimedia content using professional software.

The computer comes with a factory-installed Windows 11 Pro 64-bit operating system, plus a 99Wh capacity battery to withstand higher-than-average power consumption and connectivity including Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX210 and Bluetooth 5.2 for wireless support. as well as two Thunderbolt 4 and one USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C inputs, all with support for DisplayPort.

If the above is not enough to be sure of everything this model is capable of, the choice of its graphics card that goes to Nvidia’s 30 series instead of the previous generation seen in laptops like the Gigabyte AERO 17 HDR , It is what ends up confirming the excellence of this manufacturer’s model.

Basically an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU with dedicated 8GB GDDR6 means the ability to play the latest AAA titles as well as upcoming releases at high graphics settings as well as take advantage of the full resolution of your screen, or alternatively your high refresh rate.

As is known, this generation includes Ampere architecture that includes features such as NVIDIA Reflex to reduce latency and thus obtain greater responsiveness, ray tracing effects to simulate the physical behavior of light and achieve real-time rendering , or even DLSS technology that increases frame rates without reducing overall image quality through the use of AI.
