[PC Gamer] Gigabyte is launching a high-end 17-inch gaming laptop with a 240Hz display


Recommended Posts

Laptop makers have largely moved away from the 17.3-inch form factor, but it has not disappeared completely. This is especially true in the gaming sector. To wit, Gigabyte is rolling out the Aorus 17, a fully-loaded gaming laptop with a fast 17.3-inch display.


How fast? Well, in terms of the refresh rate, the panel (produced by AUO) speeds along at 240Hz. It also boasts a 3ms response time (presumably gray-to-gray) to ward off unwanted ghosting. And as an added bonus, Gigabyte claims the panel leaves the factor with X-Rite Pantone-certified calibration.
