The new AORUS 17 rolls out with Intel's new 8C/16T CPU in the Core i9-9980HK, and more "All Intel Inside" goodies with Intel and GIGABYTE working together to include the 9980HK processor, Intel 760 SSD, Intel-based Killer AX1650 Wi-Fi, and Thunderbolt 3. There's up to 64GB of RAM on offer, with 8GB/16GB/32GB options available.

NVIDIA provides its GeForce RTX graphics (RTX 2060, RTX 2070, and RTX 2080 options), so you should be able to handle hitting 240FPS in esports titles without a problem. You'll also be able to run RTX-powered games like Remedy's recent triumph, Control.

GIGABYTE includes a high-end keyboard and audio experience with its new AORUS 17, packing in an audiophile-grade ESS Sabre Hi-Fi DAC chip which supports up to 24-bit/192kHz and 16~600ohm mid to high-end headphones.

It wouldn't be a laptop in 2019 without AI, right? That's where we have a world's first by GIGABYTE and Microsoft with the new AORUS 17 being the world's first AI gaming laptop.

The new AORUS 17 laptops will launch in September.
