    See here.

    No firm words on a release date, but at least this provides a look at what to expect. Personally, I'm disappointed there are no 1080p or touchscreen options. Otherwise, it looks like a very solid offering. I'm eager to see the clocks it can achieve on stock cooling and with repasting, and also how well its power can be controlled when unplugged to stretch out light work away from an outlet.

    What are they doing? The 1620p panel is fairly crap for an IPS... The 120Hz was a way better option, that and 4K would make way more sense.

    At least people will stop complaining about lack of Thunderbolt 3.

    Do you think XoticPC would carry it too for us in the US?

    Certainly, if we can get them we will sell them.

    Looking into the description a bit more for the 4k one it says optional after the G-sync bit? I'm really hoping that this will mean that either we can turn it off or that maybe possibly they will sell one with out it. Just crossing my fingers for optimus support. lol

    That is weird because if it didn't have Gsync, you would figure it would have Optimus, which they would then advertise.

    I think the trend now is towards just throttling the GTX card on battery instead of switching to integrated.

    I'd be fine with that so long as idling the gtx could still give me over 4 hours on battery.

    Edit: Just got email back from Aorus and their rep seemed to think that it would be discrete graphics only with the integrated ones disabled. But to be honest he didn't sound all that certain.

    I'll wait and see some reviews. If a GTX 1070 laptop is getting some good wifi browsing battery hours, that's a good argument for Optimus no longer being necessary, but I can't help but be a little skeptical.
