Gigabyte intends to make a splash in the gaming laptop world with its two upcoming P57 models, which the company showed off at CES and has been dropping hints about every since. These laptops appear designed for more professional gamers who want to show off their skills or produce some publish-worthy content for their YouTube channel. But don’t worry: If you’re just an average gamer who really wants a customized gaming laptop that performs well when faced with demanding games, then the P57s are also meant for you.
Let’s talk about two interesting features that these P57 models share, electronics that help them stand out of the crowd. The first is a 30-key “anti-ghosting” keyboard. The keys were specifically designed to avoid costly gaming mistakes caused by pushing two keys instead of one, or other finger-fumbles. The second feature is a swappable bay that allows you to add new storage capabilities or other features without compromising on specs.
Otherwise, the P57 comes with specs that include a 6th-gen Intel Core i7 processor (which is why you see the Skylake name pop up a lot – this is a reference to Intel’s new, heat-resistant chip design), SSD storage up to 512GB, and DDR4 RAM up to 16GB. The graphics card is a GTX 965M with 2GB of VRAM.
The P57W is simply a more powerful version of the Gigabyte computer with a better graphics card, a GeForce GTX 970M with 3GB of VRAM.
Prices for these gaming laptops have not yet been confirmed, but it’s smart to expect something around the Microsoft Surface Book range: $1,500 to $2,000, at least when it comes to base specs. The latest word is that these laptops will also come with a three-month subscription to Xsplit Gamecaster for some cloud-based sharing and interactivity.
