Gigabyte Aero 15x vs Aorus X5 – 8th Gen Gaming Laptop Comparison
To the point where I kind of see the horas X 5 is the bigger brother to the error 15 X, so let's compare these two laptops see how they perform and help you pick, which is right for you. First let's check out the differences in specs. Perhaps most importantly, the error 15 X has an Intel i7, 8750 H CPU, while the Auris x5 has the i7 8850 h, which is the next step up there's. Only a small difference in out of the box clock speeds. However, the 8850 H can be overclocked, while the 8750 H con and we'll see how this performs in the benchmarks. The error 15 X also has 1070 max q graphics, while the Auris x5 has the next level up with the regular laptop 1070. They both also have 15.6 inch, 1080p 144 hertz screens. Although the Auris has g sync, while the arrow doesn't, both laptops have 16 gig of ddr2 2666 megahertz. However, the arrow is running in single channel, while the Auris is in dual channel. So keep in mind that this will affect our benchmarks slightly. In any case, both laptops have two slots and can support up to 32 gig for storage. Both laptops have 512 gig, nvme m dot, two SSDs and both have two m dot 2 slots, while the Auris also has a 2.5 inch drive bay, which is populated with the one terabyte 7200 rpm hard drive, but again, like the memory they're available with different configurations.
This is just what I had for network connectivity both have gigabit ethernet ports, support for 802 to eleven AC, Wi Fi and bluetooth version 4.2 in the arrow and version 4.1 in the Auris. Both laptops have a matte black metal design, giving the interior and lid a nice clean. Look. The lids also have corresponding gigabyte and horas logos with mirrored finishes, which light up white while the laptops are powered on. As for size differences, the Auris is bigger, considering their birth 15 inch laptops, although that's not unexpected, considering the highest specs of the Auris, which requires more cooling. As for the weight differences, the Auris was almost 600 grams more than the error, and this increased to around 750 grams. More once, you include the power bricks and cables for judging so the arrow is noticeably smaller and lighter on the left. The Auris has its mini displayport, 1.4, 2, USB 3.1 gen2 type c ports, one of which has Thunderbolt 3 support and 3.5 millimeter headphone and mic jacks, while the error has at Ethernet port USB 3.1 gen2 type, a port HDMI, 2.0 port mini DisplayPort, 1.4 and 3.5 Millimeter audio combo jack on the right both have an SD card slot and 2 USB 3.1 type, a ports. The worst is a Gen 2, while the errors of Gen 1, while the Auris has its HDMI 2.0 port, and the error has its USB 3.1 gen2 type c port with Thunderbolt support, as well as the power input towards the back.
The Auris has some more io on the back, including the power input, two more USB 3.1 type, a ports and Ethernet port, as well as some pretty big air exhaust vents in the corners and on the sides, while there's nothing. On the back of the error which exhausts its air out, the back just below the screen, overall, they have fairly similar iron. The Auris has an extra type C and type a port. The screens are also somewhat similar, both a 15.6 inch 1080p screens with a 144 Hertz refresh rate. The arrow uses an LG phillips panel, while the Auris uses an aur panel, both seem to be a hva which, to be honest, look similar to IPS, giving both screens excellent viewing angles with no noticeable color shift. The Auris has j sync available, while the error doesn't, although personally, I think, that's less – of a benefit at the high of 144 Hertz refresh rates anyway, I've measured the color gamut of both displays using the spider Pfeiffer and the one in the Auris scored slightly better. However, to my eyes, both looked great and I'd happily use either for gaming or content creation, the bezels on the Arrowwood really thin at around 5 millimeters or so, whereas the Auris has your traditional thicker bezels, due to the thin bezels of the arrow. The camera is placed below the screen, giving you that lovely up the nose look while it's above the screen in the Auris.
The quality of both cameras and microphones was similar, not great for birth. There was backlight bleed detected with both laptops, but there was much less with the error. I could only just barely notice it in a dark room, while I could occasionally notice the bleed from the orison a normally lit room when viewing darker content. However, this will vary between laptops. This is just my experience with a small sample size of one. As for screenflex, both were pretty similar. There wasn't a clear winner. They were both quite sturdy. Being metal keyboard flex was again fairly similar, a little movement when pushing down hard, but both were perfectly fine, while actually typing, normally overall, the build quality and both was very similar and quite good when it comes to typing. I Drake birth keyboards about the same, although I did have some issues with the Auris keyboard as it has macro keys on the left hand, side which took some getting used to both have individual key RGB backlighting with similar effects, and they might appear to be flickering In the video but that's, just because of the shutter speed of my camera in person, both look fine, both touch fights felt extremely smooth. The errors is plain. While the Auris features the Horus logo in a bronze color, they both use Eiland drivers out of the box, which made them suboptimal at least to me, based on my own preferences. But I was easily able to install precision drivers in both which made them both perfect.
Both laptops have 94 one hour batteries inside and while just watching youtube videos with the screens on 50 percent, brightness key pod lighting off and background apps disabled. The error lasted for almost three hours more. This was because only the error was able to swap to the integrated Intel graphics, as the Auris has G sync, which cannot be disabled, so it was burning extra power with the Nvidia graphics, the whole time, while playing The Witcher 3. With invidious battery boost capping the frame rate to 30fps, the error lasted about 40 minutes longer than the Auris. I didn't expect the results to be that different as I've got the same battery size, especially with the frame rates capped. I didn't expect the Auris to have to do extra work, although it could also be other factors such as the more powerful 8850 H CPU. As for the temperatures, I tested the error 15x with an ambient room temperature of 22 degrees Celsius and the Auris x5 at 18 degrees Celsius. So a little different as I had them at different times. These differences, haven't been accounted for in the graphs as simply adjusting up or down wouldn't, be accurate, as thermal throttling was taking place at 90 degrees. So, just something to keep in mind near idle, though the Auris was running slightly warmer, despite the cooler room temperature and the 1070 graphics, and the Auris were also warmer as expected. It'S, a more powerful card, the CPU temperatures were all mostly 90 degrees, as that seems to be where both CPUs would begin thermal throttling, but this could be improved with some under bolting.
Unfortunately, I didn't do enough in depth. Under bolting tests on the error. 15X2. Compare the two properly, but I was able to remove all thermal throttling on the error with a minus 0.15 air volt under volt, while the Auris was still seeing minimal, throttling in similar stress tests with the same undervolt applied. But that was during a full load. Stress test, as for the areas will actually be put in your hands, both were about the same at idle look at the temperature readouts rather than the colors as the colors are automatically set by the camera. While gaming, the Auris actually stays a fair bit cooler. Here, probably due to the side and rear exhaust vents, while the error removes all heat underneath the screen and again with the CPU and GPU stress tests running the Auris is still cooler. So the Auris seems to run warmer inside due to the more powerful hardware. But does a better job at containing or removing it as for the fan noise produced by the laptop, so they have a listen to some of these tests at idle. The Auris was just slightly louder, but while gaming, the worse, is quite a bit louder in comparison. Although the gap marries, if you manually max out the fans where birth get quite loud, now, let's check out some benchmarks, all tests will run at 1080p. As this is the resolution of the screens granted. The error is available with the 4k display that wasn't.
What I had just as a quick recap remember that the Auris has a slightly better CPU, which was overclocked to 4.3 gigahertz out of the box, better graphics card and dual channel memory. So we expect it to perform better than the error in fortnight we're, seeing quite a big boost with the Auris. Although the difference gets closer together at epic settings, where there's still a 23 improvement with the Auris, it played great on either laptop, but you can average above 144 FPS to make use of the Highbury fresh rate panel much easier on the Auris. Also don't forget: this game depends on what other players are doing so take the results. With a grain of salt, pub G was tested using the replay feature and again we're, seeing a fare boost with the Auris, with just under 30 of an improvement at Ultra settings. But again, like fortnight. Take the results with a grain of salt as actual gameplay will vary a lot based on which map you're playing on where you are in the game and what other players are doing, which was tested playing with the bullets and the render scale defaulted to 140 percent. Here so you'd get better results by lowering that back to 100, but even so, the results are still quite good, as this is a well optimised game and we're. Seeing a 15 percent performance increase in epic settings, battlefield 1 was tested playing the first mission and again the results were quite good but much easier to hit that 144 FPS with the horse again with around a 15 performance improvement at Ultra settings rise of the Tomb Raider was tested with the built in benchmark and yet again there's a noticeable improvement with the Auris with a 40 improvement at max settings.
Watchdogs 2 is a more resource, demanding game that it ran well on. Both laptops and doesn't really need a high frame rate to play and at Ultra settings the Auris is performing around 38 better on average, even the 1 lows with the Auris or above the averages on the error, bursts recon is another sauce intensive game and at Ultra Settings we're, seeing around 20 of an improvement with the Auris laptop shadow of war, was also tested with the built in benchmark and again we're getting around 20 better at Ultra settings with larger differences at the lowest setting levels. As usual, The Witcher 3. On the other hand, was running 15 better on the Auris at Ultra settings, but again this isn't really a game that feels much better with a higher framerate. In my opinion, just quickly, I've got the results from some benchmark tools, including Heaven Valley and super position benchmarks from Unigine, as well as fire strike time. Spy and VR BOTS from 3d mark just pause. The video, if you want a closer look at these results, the differences in most games are much larger than I expected, but keep in mind. The CPU was overclocked to 4.3 gigahertz on all cores out of the box with the Auris. The dual channel memory is likely helping out a bit too and of course, most importantly, the 1070 graphics perform better than the max q10 70 in the era, 15 acts just to give you an idea of the CPU performance differences here's, how both laptop students and a Bench with the CPUs under faulted for best performance, we can see that the 88 50h is only just slightly ahead in single core and further ahead in multi core, especially when overclocked to 4.
3 gigahertz, but I'll be comparing these CPUs in more detail in a future. Video I've tested the 512 gig m2 nvme SSD speeds using crystal disk mark and the results weren't too far apart, but keep in mind that you might get different Drive models or sizes in different regions. Both SD readers are UHS too, and these results are unfortunately not directly comparable, as I upgraded to a v90 SD card after testing the error, which performed better but either way. Hopefully, this shows that you should get decent speeds from either. The Auris also had a one terabyte 7200 rpm hard drive in the single 2.5 inch drive bay, which the error doesn't have now. Perhaps the most important difference the price here in Australia. The Auris core is for around 400 Australian dollars more than the error in the u.s., though, there seems to be a 300 US still a difference between the two, so you'll need to decide if the extra performance is worth the price personally, I'm leaning towards the error. 15X but I'm, looking at it from a content creation perspective, and I don't really need the extra power if the 8850 H and 1070, and I prefer the extra battery life as I don't need G sync, not to mention the thinner and lighter build. As for gaming, there you're going to get quite a better experience with the Auris x5 due to those better specs, so you'll need to decide if that boost in performance is worth the 300 US dollar difference or whatever the price difference happens to be at the time.
You'Re deciding assuming you don't mind the larger and heavier Oris with lower battery life in u.s. dollars. The Auris costs 13 more at the time of recording, but at least in the games I tested was giving me anywhere from 15 to 40 of a performance increase. So in terms of rural gaming power, it may be worthwhile, hopefully, as you've seen. The Auris x5 is basically a jacked up error 15x in many ways, which is why I tend to think of it as the bigger brother of the error so which of these laptops. Would you guys pick the error, 15 X or or a sex 5?
