Aorus has just lifted the veil on a new computer specially designed for the most demanding gamers : the X9 . Very promising, it does not compromise and it should therefore turn some heads.
Aorus is not quite a brand like any other. The company is indeed a subsidiary of the essential Gigabyte and it therefore has all its know-how. It was founded in 2014 to offer a solid alternative to manufacturers' gaming ranges and has succeeded in uniting around its products a community that is both strong and united.
To suit all budgets and all needs, Aorus has chosen to decline its offer in several ranges: the X3, the X5, the X7 and the X9. The Aorus X9 for its part has just placed on the top of the range and it is therefore entitled to what is best at present.
Aorus X9: gaming without compromise
Aorus has opted for angular, futuristic and aggressive lines, with some colorful notes brought by the LEDs placed at the front and rear of the chassis. The X9 clearly won't go unnoticed.
The manufacturer has taken the greatest care with the keyboard and thus equipped his machine with a genuine MX Brown mechanical keyboard. The keys are obviously backlit and they will be able to display no less than 16.7 million colors. If the user wishes, he can even configure lighting effects to impress his opponents during tournaments.
The same goes for the cooling system, which has received the greatest care from the company's engineers. The machine has four fans and eight heat pipes to keep cool in all circumstances.
A good thing considering its technical sheet.
A GeForce 1070 SLI on the program
Aorus has indeed not done things by half on this side and the X9 thus embeds a 7th generation Intel Core i7 supported by a maximum of 64 GB of RAM. For the graphics circuit, the manufacturer has opted for an SLI of two Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 graphics cards, each with 8 GB of dedicated memory.
The storage will depend mainly on the configuration chosen, but the machine is equipped with two M.2 slots for SSDs.
The screen is not left out either. It thus reaches a diagonal of 17.3 inches and it is able to display 2560 x 1440. Aorus has opted for a VA type panel and it will therefore not exceed 5 ms of afterglow time, all with a rate 120Hz refresh rate.
The panel is also X-Rite Pantone certified and is therefore specially calibrated to offer the best possible colorimetric rendering.
The price will depend on the configuration chosen. The base model will be offered at 3,599 € with 16 GB of RAM, a 256 GB SSD and a 1 TB HDD, but it will fly on the most muscular configurations.
