Introduction

GIGABYTE P56XT (Intel Kaby Lake) Gaming Laptop Review 01 | TweakTown.com

Over the past months, I have looked at many gaming notebooks featuring Pascal mobile parts and Kaby Lake mobile parts, a match made in heaven for mobile gaming. Both architectures outclass their predecessors in both performance and power, and vendors took it upon themselves to add in 4K gaming displays, but they typically have done it starting with GTX 1060 graphics.

The issue is that a mobile GTX 1060 isn't enough to drive modern games very well at 4K, and so it confuses me to see that. However, today GIGABYTE sent over a P56XT with a 4K display, but it uses a GTX 1070, which should be much improved and capable of 4K game play on the go.

Let's see what GIGABYTE has to offer with the P56XT.

Specifications

The P56XT features an i7-7700HQ 4C/8C processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.8GHz. We also get a 15.6" UHD (4K) display, but there is an option for 1080P if you like that. The notebook features a GTX 1070 with 8GB of VRAM. The notebook in our configuration has a 1TB HDD along with a 256GB M.2 SSD. It also features a 91Wh battery, ThunderBolt 3.0, and an HD web camera. It weights roughly 5.7lbs and has dimensions of 15.1(W) x 10.6(D) x 1.2(H) inches.
