Pre-orders for the first powerful RTX 4090 gaming laptop are now open

One of the first high-end gaming laptops to use an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU, the Gigabyte Aorus 17X, is now available for pre-order Now in anticipation of its official release on February 8th. Good news for developers and power users: graphics cards in the 40-series carry a serious punch. Nvidia claims that their new technology represents “the largest advance in generational performance ever” while also being much more energy efficient. If what Nvidia says is accurate, you’re in for a real treat. Come along as I get into the specifics.

The Aorus 17X has a powerful processor (Intel Core i9-13900HX), graphics card (Nvidia GeForce 4090), memory (32GB) and storage (2.0TB) in the form of an SSD. Those glasses will blow your mind, and I mean that in the greatest conceivable manner. This system ought to have no trouble chowing down on games set to High or Ultra visuals, and it ought to be a beast when it comes to creating content, too. The large 17.3-inch screen can refresh at 240 hertz and has a resolution of 2560 by 1440. Only looking at the figures, it seems like the visual quality will be really high. Also, the bezels are really fine.

Pre-ordering this precise setup Now will set you back a whooping $3,899. Despite the astronomical price tag, the incredible power it offers is well worth it. If you’re looking for the pinnacle of gaming fidelity, the Aorus 17X may be your answer.
