The Gigabyte Aorus 15P is an upper midrange gaming laptop with a strong Intel i7 processor and Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU that ensure top-notch performance in general use, 3D rendering, machine learning, and engineering tasks. With 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage, it is well-suited for multitasking and large projects. The battery life is limited, so it may not be the best choice for long periods away from a power source. Its 15.6-inch IPS display is bright and has good color coverage, making it suitable for gaming and creative work. However, at almost 5 pounds and with a 1.06-inch thickness, it's less portable than ultrabooks. It comes with a full array of ports including Thunderbolt, HDMI, Ethernet, and it has a backlit keyboard with a number pad, but no touch screen. It’s a solid fit for those who prioritize performance and connectivity over battery life and portability. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Engineering & Design:
4.5
The Gigabyte Aorus 15P stands out for engineering and design due to its robust Intel i7 processor, substantial 32 GB of RAM, and high-end Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU, which collectively offer strong performance for demanding software tasks typical in these fields. Additionally, its 15.6-inch IPS display provides clear and accurate visuals, essential for detailed design work.
General Use:
4.4
The Gigabyte Aorus 15P's strong CPU and ample RAM make it an excellent choice for a variety of applications, ensuring smooth performance even in more demanding tasks, while the high-quality IPS display provides clear and vivid images for daily use. However, with an average battery life and a weight that leans towards the heavier side, it may not be the most portable option, making it more suited for users who do not need to travel with their laptop frequently.
Gaming & AI:
4.4
PerfectRec’s Gaming and AI Score strongly emphasizes graphics processing capability as well as AI performance, while also taking into account other factors that impact suitability for gaming and AI work. While performance (especially graphics performance) is the most important factor determining this score, we also give modest weight to screen quality, heat management, keyboard quality, and storage.
Content Creation:
4.4
PerfectRec’s Content Creation Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for photo editing, and video editing work. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
General Use Screen Quality:
4.4
The general use screen score is based on the screen technology, contrast ratio, resolution, brightness, color gamut and color accuracy. This score does not take into account specialized display features for specific use cases, such as high refresh rate for gaming.

4.4
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.
Software Development:
4.2
PerfectRec’s Software Development Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for software development. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
Build Quality:

PerfectRec’s Build Quality Score incorporates case materials, display and keyboard flex, hinge quality, chassis rigidity, and overall reliability.

Mike Wobker | June 2021
"The Aorus 15P is a high-end gaming laptop with fast 360 Hz display. Gaming performance in the Aorus 15P YD is very high thanks to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 installed here. However, with the use of the Intel Core i7-11800H, CPU performance also closes in on the strong competition from AMD. SSD performance is excellent as well, and it leaves no room for criticism. Thanks to the built-in Intel Core i7-11800H, the system performance of the Aorus 15P YD increases significantly."
