The overclocked i7-6820HK, GTX 1060, 16GB of DRR4 at 2400MHz, and fast NVMe storage produce very nice gaming results. There is another system in the benchmarks that also uses a mobile GTX 1060, and the AORUS X3 Plus v6 beats it out because of the other system enhancements.

 

The only notebook that can consistently beat the little AORUS is the Origin EON17-X with its desktop class overclocked 6700K and overclocked GTX 1080. The only thing I wish I could have tested was 4K performance, but since 4K is higher resolution than QHD+, I wasn't able to do a comparison at resolutions higher than QHD (1440p).
