Performance & Battery
Getting Gigabyte Aorus Laptop to run World of Warcraft is a cinch. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max Q is a powerhouse for graphical fidelity. But, more importantly, the 6-core 10th Gen i7-10875H can turbo-clock to 5.1GHz, with 16 threads. Between the two, the CPU is the most important. You’ll get over 60fps on ultra-high settings at 1080p, though it drops down to about 45fps at 4K on ultra-high. Either way 240Hz refresh rate brings impressive smoothness to your gaming experience. Battery life is 8 hours, which is very surprising considering how powerful the Gigabyte Aorus Laptop is.

Ports, Expandability & Build Quality
Built with an aluminum chassis, unlike the HP Omen X, the Gigabyte Aorus Gaming Laptops added some rigidness and exceptional durability. To protect the hardware of course, including the storage. However, it could use some more; it would be a shame to waste so much gaming potential on a sizable, but still small 512GB NVMe SSD. Ports you’ll find along the sides are: Thunderbolt 3, three USB-A, HDMI 2.0, miniDP 1.4, Ethernet, and audio jack.
The Gigabyte Aorus Laptop is an amazing machine that opens up so much gaming potential. You’ll have the rig to play just about anything you want. But make no mistake: it’s an expensive piece of hardware. By picking this machine up, however, you’ve future-proofed yourself for the next few years. For your budget options, both the Lenovo Legion Y540 and MSI GL65 Leopard 10SFK-062 15.6 are perfect alternatives.
Gigabyte Aorus Laptop Wrap Up
For those who want the ultimate World of Warcraft experience, the Gigabyte Aorus Laptop wants your number. It wants to get in good with you, what with its NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max Q and 10th Gen i7-10875H. And if that didn’t convince you, its buttery smooth 240Hz refresh rate will, provided you have the budget.
