Gigabyte P57Wv5 review


Gigabyte P57Wv5 review

Although Gigabyte may be more renowned for its range of desktop motherboards and graphics cards, it has more recently become deservedly well-known for its variety of gaming-focused laptops.


Following up from the notable Gigabyte P55K V4 we looked at last year, the Taiwanese manufacturer brought a new selection of gaming laptops to CES 2016, the pick of which may well be the 17.3-inch Gigabyte P57Wv5.


Although it may not be quite as slim, light, or pack quite the graphical processing power of the top-end Gigabyte P37X, the P57W has more than enough to chew through any game you might throw at it. Under the hood, a speedy combination of the latest Intel Core i7-6700HQ Skylake processor and Nvidia GTX 970M graphics rivals most desktop gaming rigs for power.


While it is not as thin as the Acer Aspire V15 Nitro, or as quite as trendy as the Alienware 17, the Gigabyte P57W makes for an enticing package that – on paper at least – strikes an even balance of price and performance.

Gigabyte P55K V4 review


Gigabyte P55K V4

Serious gaming on PCs has never been a particularly cheap hobby, but as powerful desktop rigs have become more affordable, so too have gaming laptops that pack enough power to satisfy all your gaming needs.


Gigabyte may be better known for its quality desktop motherboards than its laptops, but after releasing the less powerful Gigabyte P35K V3 into the wild earlier in the year, it’s back once again with the Gigabyte P55K V4. Featuring an Intel Core i7 CPU coupled with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M GPU, you can expect impressive performance at a bargain price that undercuts the HP Omen’s price tag considerably.


Whilst the specifications may be good value for money, there is just enough detail in the P55K’s design for it to stand out from other non-descript portable powerhouses and make it a genuinely appealing gamer’s machine.
