    I thought it'd be great to have a thread dedicated to this laptop separate from the Aero 15 owners thread.

    Below are the links that scrod and rkostadinov found with information on the laptop.

    - https://www.notebookcheck.net/Gigabyte-Aero-15-X-coming-with-GTX-1070-Max-Q-graphics.249578.0.html

    - https://www.hardwareluxx.de/index.p...it-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1070-max-q-im-test.html

    I'm interested in how the addition of the 1070 Max-Q will affect performance, thermals and battery life. In addition, to confirming if the unit still has a FHD 60HZ screen or if it gets something better.

    Lastly, do we know if it'll be a Newegg exclusive or if it'll be released to everyone, including re-sellers?

    Thanks

    The 1060 model was a warm machine. This may end up biting them in the arse.

    That's my worry as well.

    If I remember right, iunlock tinkered with the aero 15, and a repasting and a heatsink rebalance and managed to get those temps down significantly. So at the very least, there's room to mess with and fix it.

    Factory thermal paste strikes again.

    In the review it runs a little a hotter than the gtx 1060, but not by much. Let´s see in further reviews.

    Do you think it's like running the regular 1070 with whisper mode?

    A regular 1070 will have shipped in a system designed to cool it under normal load. It should still run better.
