While we have taken a close look at many new notebooks with Intel's 9th generation 8000 series mobile processors, including those with i9 CPUs, today we take a look at an Aorus branded gaming notebook with a 9th generation 9000 series mobile CPU and an RTX 2070. The notebook in for review today is a bit special because of its 240Hz display, and while it's just 1080P, it should provide a very good gaming experience. Let's see what it has to offer.
