CES, the annual (and largest) consumer electronics exhibition, is currently on the go in Las Vegas, Nevada, and true to the purpose of the show, Gigabyte revealed its latest gaming notebook line-up.
All of the latest Gigabyte notebooks will boast Intel’s 6th generation of processors, known by its moniker Skylake, as well as NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics.
Using Skylake as its platform, Gigabyte can include a host of new features in these new notebooks including support for DDR4 memory, M.2 PCIe SSD storage and USB Type C. The display connectors in the notebooks have been given a refresh with HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 now being supported.
The stand out model for us has to be the 17 inch P37X and the 15 inch P35X which both have an optional 4K IPS display. We would have liked to have seen an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 designed for notebooks in either of these models but the included NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M will be sufficient for gaming on the go. Users will also have the option to switch out an optical drive for additional storage space.
While gaming notebooks are quite expensive, Gigabyte hopes to address this with the revealing of the 17 inch P17F and the 15 inch P15F. These two notebooks feature graphics powered by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M as well as M.2 SSD storage support. Gigabyte is touting these as budget orientated notebooks but just how affordable they will be and how well they perform remains to be seen.
There is no word from Gigabyte as to when these notebooks will be available or what we can expect the pricing to be but we suspect that if any of these models tickle your fancy you may want to start saving now.
