[QUOTE="windwithme, post: 14284199, member: 87435"] Tom Clancy's The Division 2: 1920 x 1080 3D effect set to highest, built-in speed test score - 4798 [IMG]https://i.imgur.com/cMKs0B4.png[/IMG] PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS: 1920 x 1080 3D effect set to highest, start character in lobby, - 120 FPS [IMG]https://i.imgur.com/ch7qPC8.png[/IMG] Although the RTX 2060 is higher-level product and comes with ray tracing as well as DLSS technology, it’s not commonly used for gaming. Basically, there isn’t a huge gap between the performances of the GTX 1660 Ti and the RTX 2060 in most 3D games. After a few tests, we can see solid performance by the GTX 1660 Ti at 1080P resolution in-game. If the laptop model you want to buy together with a GTX 1660 Ti differs too much in price from the RTX 2060, The GTX 1660 Ti is a good choice for a mid-range graphics card that combines 3D performance and affordability. Now dissemble D side to have a look at the internal layout. There are 12 screws in the back, with 4 screws in the battery area. Self-disassembly might affect your warranty, so if you want to upgrade your hardware you should send it to the original factory. It comes with the latest WINDFORCE cooling technology: 2 of 47-blade fans with four heat pipes elevate the total cooling efficiency to 150W. The 4 sets of outlet vents on the two sides and the back of C side, with large intake vents above the keyboard and on the back. [IMG]https://i.imgur.com/N1abxO5.jpg[/IMG] One 2.5 inch SATA device on the bottom left side of D side, with GPU fan situated above. On the bottom right side we have two SO-DIMM DDR4 slots, with this model using SAMSUNG DDR4. Capacity is at 8GBX2 with clock speed DDR4 2666, although Intel 10th gen supports up to DDR4 2933. [IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Az5vrBt.jpg[/IMG] On the top right is the CPU fan, with the slot for detachable batteries situated above. On the bottom right, two M.2 SSD slots plus another for 2.5 inch SATA, a maximum of 3 installable storage devices. On the bottom left and right are two 2W speakers. [IMG]https://i.imgur.com/KAKXolE.jpg[/IMG] Processed the i7-10750H extreme cooling test at a room temperature of 31 degrees: While running LinX 0.7.1 at full speed, the temperature was 70~79˚C, with a maximum sudden peak at 100˚C. [IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Z1kiQ4G.png[/IMG] AORUS 5 has good cooling capacity, so we’re using LinX, an Intel platform with a heavy load in burn-ins. During burn-ins, the i7-10750H mostly stays at a clock rate of 4.2G when display showed under 50W. If the power’s increased up to 55~68W, the clock would usually be at 2.99G. Fan speed is at 2200rpm while idling and 4800rpm when CPU is at full speed. In most circumstances, the CPU usage would be lower than those above, with correspondingly low temperature and fan speed. Furmark is mainly for extreme burn-in tests for the GPU GTX 1660Ti: GPU 1485MHz / MEME 6000MHz, Running FurMark gets us a 46˚C while idling and 82˚C at full speed. [IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Dv20ZxH.png[/IMG] Since it’s summer with around a 10˚C increase in room temperature, there’s a corresponding increase in temperature recorded in burn-in tests. During burn-ins with FurMark, the upper area of the keyboard is around 38~45˚C, the left and right hand side vents at 38~48˚C. Back vents at 34~55˚C, D side vents at 32~43˚C, with vents on the right-hand side of the back having slightly higher temperatures. Equipped with the latest WINDFORCE cooling system, it’s satisfactory with regards to both CPU and GPU cooling. You will not hear much noise during low-loading situations like idling, doing office work or web surfing, fan speed was low. During high-loading situations like gaming, the fan speed goes up, but the noise is around mid- to low-frequency and doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable with overall noise. As for battery life, we set our battery option to “balanced” in the Windows 10 power settings, with battery options set to “power-saving”: To simulate a practical and power-intensive situation, we play videos on YouTube at 1080P with screen brightness of 20%. After an hour, battery is at 78%, 55% after 2 hours, 42% after 3 and 9% after 4. We estimate that with automatic shutdown at 5%, the battery lasts to 4 hours and 8 minutes – It’s acceptable battery life performance. [IMG]https://i.imgur.com/iL9VTQy.jpg[/IMG] To summarize the AORUS 5 SB(i7-10750H/GTX 1660Ti 6G) Features and advantages: 1.A rare Made-in-Taiwan laptop, with many parts from big brand or high-level manufacturers. 2.The WINDFORCE cooling system provides excellent cooling for both CPU and GPU. 3.The webcam got high quality compared to other laptops I have seen in the last couple of years. 4.Unique detachable battery with a small adaptor, which increases portability. 5.Keyboard keys with all-zone RGB backlight with 15 colors and a precise touchpad. 6.Uses SAMSUNG DDR4 2666 DRAM, a high level and more compatible RAM. 7.AORUS Gaming Center software and the Nahimic 3D audio software were both good. 8.Specifications that are good for gaming, with 144Hz refresh rate, 72% NTSC color gamut and ultra-thin bezels on three sides. 9.Relatively exceptional audio quality in the mid-level or affordable laptop market. 10.When combined with GTX 1660Ti graphics card, can output on three screens at once, with 1+3 displays simultaneously at maximum. Parts of improvements in the future: 1.A side’s smooth surface makes fingerprints more obvious. Overall quality could enhanced if anti-glare texture is used on the two sides of C side. 2.Internal components are from reputable brands, so the laptop comes at a slightly higher price compared to competitors of the same level. 3.Battery capacity is a bit smaller, would prefer the battery life more than 5 hours. 4.Intel 10th gen’s DDR4 2666 and 2933 differ very little in bandwidth, but 2933 is better for maximum clock rate. Performance Rating ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 85/100 Material Rating ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 86/100 Specification Rating ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 85/100 ID design Rating ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 82/100 Cost Performance Rating ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 85/100 [IMG]https://i.imgur.com/flO9YmQ.jpg[/IMG] This article’s new AORUS 5 models all come with an Intel Core i7-10750H, but recommended a version that uses dual AMD platform in the future. The three models differ in their levels of GPU, with GTX 1650Ti, GTX 1660Ti and RX 2060 respectively. Compared to other brands of gaming laptops on the market with i7-10750H and GTX 1660Ti, AORUS 5 is a little bit pricier. Since it used better components such as 144Hz & NTSC 72% display, Samsung DDR4 dual channel RAM, and Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 wireless chipset, its more costly in comparison. The low-key design of A side is a minus, I hope GIGABYTE can upgraded it to a non-smooth surface in the future to raise its overall appeal. In all other respects, AORUS 5 was above the level in its price range and uses higher-tier component parts. Excellent cooling capacity, webcam with high resolution and good speaker quality – it’s pretty much an affordable laptop with well-rounded overall performance. Above is the analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of AORUS 5.
