    I believe that is the difference between X7 (1070) and X7 DT (1080).
    During CES, one of the sites posted v7 (for x5 and x7; x3 preorders already available) release date in March.

    Here's a review of the X3 V6 from Xotic:

    The GPU gets to 95 degrees, yikes.

    Cross posting this from the Aorus owners lounge thread as I remember a few people asking about the V3 in here.

    Not counting the ESS Sabre DAC and TB3 support, do you guys think that waiting for the Kaby Lake refresh is worth it?

    When's it available. It should be now. Personally I'd wait. Costs nothing extra for the new cpu. And you don't want yesterday's cpu. And in some games there IS an advantage in fps gains X

    My problem now is that the Kaby Lake refresh does not have the FHD IPS panel anymore which was what i was gunning for in the V6

    Edit: Really sorry if i'm confusing you guys. My main issue now is that supposedly the V7 with kaby lake will not have the FHD panel anymore. The 120hz screen is'nt necessary for me as I use my external 144hz panel most of the time when gaming. And with kaby lake benchmarks showing only minute performance gains and behaving the same thermally I don't know if its worth waiting for the V7 line. Looking for your opinions

    Wait. I've just clicked. The v6 never had FHD. Neither did v3, v4 or v5. They've always been 3200x1800 panel. Where ever the info for FHD came from is not correct.

    I do not know if we're referring to the same laptop here hahahah but lets start afresh lol. I had planned to get the X7V6 with the FHD IPS screen. Now that its getting a Kaby Lake refresh and does not appear to have that panel anymore, i am not too sure if i should get the refresh with the QHD screen and hope, that in the event they are reusing the AUO panel, the striping issue is fixed or order the current Skylake FHD skew
