The Samsung NVMe SSD used in the AORUS X9 is similar to a Samsung 960 Pro, and while the OS drive performs a bit slower than the second drive (they are the same drive), both perform excellently. Network performance is also solid, and the notebook performs great.

 

 

Battery Tests

The battery performance is not the best, in fact, it's not good. However, battery life on the other very high-end gaming notebook is also very bad. If you look at the EON17-X you will notice that it's benchmarked battery life in PCMark is worse but its battery eater results are better than the AORUS X9.

 

That is because the AORUS X9 has two GPUs and a power hungry CPU, so depending on how you use the device, battery life might be better or worse than other ultra-high-end gaming notebooks.
