    I can't seem to find any reviews for the non 1440p screen, and this model I've seen on newegg only has a 256 gb ssd:


    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834725034


    1) Does the 1920x1080 IPS screen have the white stripping issue that the 2560x1440 screen has? I was wondering how good this model's screen is with the 1920x1080 IPS screen and can anyone confirm that it has g-sync?


    2) What are the speeds of the 256gb ssd that comes with this laptop? Is it better or on par with the samsung 950 pro 256gb ssd that I bought off newegg?


    3) If I replaced the ssd and the hdd with a samsung 950 pro m.2 ssd and a 850 evo 1tb sata 3 ssd and need to return the laptop for rma, will I receive back my 2 aftermarket samsung SSDs that I bought or do I need to replace them back before RMA?

    4) I also bought right now an MSI gs73vr, does anyone know if the Aorus x7 v6 is a better laptop in terms of throttling and temperatures on the gpu and cpu?

    5) For those of you who own the Aorus x7 v6, what complaints do you have now if any after using it for some time? I know as far as the MSI GS73vr goes people have complained about the track pad buttons getting stuck inside the frame of the laptop until they took it apart to get rid of the stuck track pad and the space bar not registering being used if used off to the side too much. Any worries like this for you guys?

    I ordered this last week so I will answer after I receive and have a chance to use it a while. I think the 1080 screen is TN as it's 120Hz, I haven't seen any 1080 120Hz IPS displays. Also, this laptop qualifies for their extended holiday return policy which gives you until January 31st to return with no restock fee. It's one of the main reasons I ordered from them as I can answer all these questions for myself as opposed to relying on someone else's review/benchmarks.

    You're 100% certain the 1080 resolution screen is 120hz? Does it have the white stripping issue as the 1440 resolution screen?


    Can you take a screen shot of the refresh rate on the display?

    Actually, sorry. The 15 inch screen is 120Hz, the 17 inch is 60Hz, but it's IPS not TN. Again this is exactly why I ordered from them so I can determine if I prefer the 120Hz TN or 60Hz IPS. The horizontal stripping issue is only the 2560x1440 120Hz screens, it's also not only an Aorus issue, the same display is used by other manufacturers with similar issues.

    Got it today, 1080 screen is 75Hz IPS. There is absolutely no horizontal stripping issue and zero light bleed with an all black background. It's very nice. Haven't had much time to play with it but I did run a 15,104 on Firestrike right out of the box. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Do you have Witcher 3 by any chance? At 1080p with max settings, HBAO+, hair works with max AA, what frames do you get and what are your cpu and gpu temps? Did you get it off amazon or newegg or a boutique reseller like xotic or hidevolution with aftermarket thermal paste?

    Also how loud do the fans get? And your personal opinion of how it looks in person compared to the pictures you've seen prior to it online?

    Don't have Witcher 3. This review tests Witcher 3...

    Got it at Newegg. After reading all the reviews stating the fans were so loud I was surprised they didn't seem all that loud to me, pretty normal for a gaming laptop. It looks exactly the same, the build quality is excellent. The chassis is all aluminum and feels really premium compared to my old Alienware 17R4. I wish I could compare it to the new Alienwares but I don't have access to one.

    I've been running a lot of Benchmarks and the max I've seen the CPU go is 70c, GPU 68c. I made some tweaks and got a 15304 on Firestrike, the review I saw for the A7 DT V6 with the GTX 1080 got a 159XX, so pretty close to that score. I had a DT V6 ordered from XoticPC but cancelled because I don't think a 230w PS is enough juice to drive the GTX 1080 and 6820HK, hence the seemingly low benchmarks. Honestly I think the 1070 will run any game on Ultra settings @ 1080p for quite some time.

    Do you want to use my gog account and play witcher 3? I only have witcher 3 on my account so I don't mind sharing it. You can play the whole game if you want I hardly ever use my gog account. All I ask for in return is you to tell me your cpu, gpu temp when playing with max everything possible at 1080p
