    I was considering the Aorus 15 2070. Aorus makes awesome laptops but unfortunately this isn't one of them.
    It's not even a real Aorus and it's no surprise they only released one RTX laptop and the rest of the fleet comes but in May.

    The Aorus 15 is a Clevo type chasis. May not be Clevo exactly but another generic frame.
    The Thunderobot 911 pro is the exact same machine but with different light strips.
    It was actually on display at CES but nobody talked about it. Crappy Chinese reseller.
    Funny thing is the Thunderobot manages to put the option for the 2080 max-q which Aorus does not.

    My take is that Aorus wanted to release something ahead of the big 9th gen May release for their regular lineup. They grabbed this chasis. ( or made it themselves with the intent to sell to resellers..MSI did this with the MSI 16L13) to stay in the game. I fully expect a major quality Aorus 15 line to be release in May with full aluminum bodies and 2080 GPU's.

    I saw the thunderobot 911 pro in a CES video. It wasn't the star of the show but the camera slowly panned a whole row of laptops and it was on camera for a few seconds. Then I googled and found many chiinese results and also this.

    They add the light strip across the rear fans similar to what Aorus did with the X9 series. No doubt it's Aorus design because they are the only laptops I have seen with that light strip done that way. It seems they wanted their own Aorus version to be "professional" as well and they didn't include them.

    How about that : THEY copy Aorus ? Who knows ? Maybe aorus sell this design to them. Anyway i don't care if you are right, this laptop is amazing soo far, all is very good, just the battery life is very small but laptops are not perfect, there is always this or that no good and for me it's not a issue because the laptop will not go out of my home, just moove inside the house so all good

    To be clear. Im not trying to trash the laptop. I love Aorus and had the X5 and X9 DT.
    Im was just very disappointed in this machine . That it didnt have a large battery like the X5 always does. That the keyboard looked abit crappy. That the design looked abit off. Not a natural progression of the X5 line.
    That it wasnt solid aluminum and the bottom was like an MSI type laptop.
    That it is thicker than the previous versions. That it didnt have a 2080 or max-q option.
    When i found out it probably was just a filler tide them over laptop until May releases...it was relieving. This likely isnt the end all of the Aorus X5. Something better is coming and i look forward to it.

    However this Aorus 15 is at a truly excellent price with a nice trackpad and maybe the best budget value machine there is with a true 2070 and if i were on a budget it may still have been the one i bought. Sorry to sound too critical of it.

    Agreed. I had high hopes for this laptop as well as it seemed to have the right balance of hardware and cost. During CES I was torn between the Acer Triton 500, Asus Zephyrus GX701 and the Aorus 15.

    After all the reviews were published I decided to hold off and wait for Computex to see what is released mid year.

    My hope is we have better screens by then. My dream is to have a 120hz 1440p 5ms 400+nit screen. Alternatively, though only 60hz refresh rate I'm interested in the 15" OLED screens that Samsung will be releasing shortly. They have quick response times and high brightness but the downside is the low refresh rate and battery drain when not gaming.

    Pairing a sweet screen, a 9th gen CPU, a 90wh battery and a 2080 with a chassis that can handle the thermals later this year is what I'm hoping for now.

    Honestly I blame Intel for the rubbish state of gaming laptops right now. The CPUs just can't be cooled in these laptop bodys.

    Btw more issues with the Aorus 15 v 9. I cannot get any CPU cores to go above 800mhz. Seriously

    I have tried restarting the computer several times. I've tried turning up the fans to max in the Control Center. I've tried setting the CPU at max in the control center. I've tried changing the power profiles in Windows power settings. I've tried undervolting. I've double checked that the power is on.

    Does anyone else have this issue?

    That’s not true for all laptops but unfortunately true for many. Take for example the Lenovo Y740 it maintains pretty good temps while still maintaining full 3.9Ghz on all 6 cores when playing the Witcher 3

    If you scroll down to where it says stress test you can see the results, funny thing the cooling system is pretty basic when just looking at it

    Not trying to derail the thread just making a point.
    Just wish the Aorus had a GSync screen because overall it looks great and is relatively affordable.
    @knibbler
    Makes a great point about future releases of more Aorus laptops because traditionally they have GSync screens like the X5 and X9DT.
    I’m hoping the those next gen replacement models for the X5 and X9 have GSync screens.
