First off we have the flagship AORUS 15-XA with a 15.6-inch 1080p 240Hz IGZO LCD from Sharp, while the AORUS 15-WA model comes with the same 15.6-inch sized display but is made by LG, is an IPS display and falls down to 144Hz. The lower-end AORUS 15-SA rolls out with the same 15.6-inch 1080p 144Hz LCD from LG.

The big difference between the three AORUS 15 gaming laptops is that the flagship model packs the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070, the middle AORUS 15 includes a RTX 2060, while the lower-end AORUS 15 rocks the new GTX 1660 Ti.

The AORUS 15 is cooled with 6 heat sinks and 2 pipes cooling both the CPU and GPU independently.

One of the stand out parts of the AORUS 15 gaming laptop is that it's the first to market with the new 'All Intel Inside' technology. This new intiative is derived from what AORUS explains is a "combination of high-performance parts by Intel, called the All Intel Inside technology'.

GIGABYTE is using all-Intel technology with an Intel Core i7-9750H processor, ultra-fast Intel 760p SSD and Intel-based killed Wi-Fi for super-fast connectivity. The included Intel 760p SSD has read speeds of up to 3GB/sec, so you won't be loading into games last at all. There are two M.2 slots and a 2.5-inch SSD that allows for plenty of super-fast Intel 760p SSD, and a big SSD for storage.
