GIGABYTE AERO 15 OLED - The Creator’s Laptop

There’s always a trade-off between performance, features and portability with laptop computers. Lightweight laptops are great when you’re travelling, but they tend to provide limited performance and features and can’t cope with graphically intensive tasks such as 3D graphics, animation or video-editing. However, more powerful laptops are bigger and heavier, and also suffer from reduced battery life.

GIGABYTE’s AERO 15 OLED gives you the best of both worlds, providing professional-level performance that can handle the most demanding graphics, video and design work. And, with its slimline design and all-day battery life, it allows content creators to keep working both in the office and out on the road.

AERO 15 OLED - Light And Bright

The AERO 15 OLED is one of the most portable 15-inch laptops currently available, measuring just 20mm thick and weighing 2.1kg. The lightweight aluminium casing is sleek and elegant, but is also sturdy enough to cope with life on the road, making the AERO 15 OLED the ideal choice to take with you when you need to visit clients, or go out on location for a photo or video-shoot.

The 15.6-inch AMOLED display from Samsung provides ultra-high 4K resolution for maximum clarity and detail, with support for HDR 400 True Black that provides eye-catching levels of brightness and colour, as well as crisp, sharp contrast. It’s well equipped for professional graphics and design work too, supporting 100% of the DCI-P3 colour space used in professional video-editing, as well as 97% of Adobe RGB,  every panel is individually Calibrated and  certified by Pantone for accurate colour reproduction. 

AERO 15 OLED - Power And Performance

It may be a lightweight laptop, but the AERO 15 OLED provides heavyweight performance for video, 3D graphics and animation work. Inside the slimline design of the AERO 15 OLED you’ll find the latest 9th generation Intel processors, including Intel’s top-of-the-range eight-core i9-9980HK, along with nVIDIA’s latest GTX and RTX graphics cards, up to the latest RTX 2080 Max-Q. That combination gives you all the power you need to edit 4K video and 3D graphics, and make sure you can meet even the tightest deadlines.

It’s not just about hardware, though, as the AERO 15 OLED can use nVIDIA’s RTX Studio drivers to enhance performance for the applications that you use the most. Developed in conjunction with companies such as Adobe and DaVinci, the RTX drivers go beyond conventional gaming drivers to provide maximum performance for ray-tracing and other visual effects in applications such as Adobe Premiere and DaVinci Resolve (although the gaming drivers and 3D audio are there too, for when you’re off-duty).

That’s a lot of power for a slimline laptop, but the AERO 15 OLED runs cool and quiet all day long, thanks to GIGABYTE’s Supra Cool 2 design with twin cooling fans. This has earned the AERO 15 OLED a MAX-Q certification from the graphics experts at nVIDIA, ensuring that it is able to stay cool and quiet even when running demanding graphics applications.  Performance is further enhanced by the use of Microsoft’s Azure AI technology, which uses advanced artificial intelligence to create custom profiles for individual applications, allowing the AERO 15 OLED to automatically adjust the power mode for both CPU and GPU in order to reduce heat and noise while maintaining maximum performance. This ‘dynamic power distribution’ also helps to preserve battery life, allowing the AERO 15 OLED to provide up to 8.5 hours of battery life for all-day computing when you’re on the move.

Well Connected

Whether you’re travelling or working in the office, you’ll need good connectivity for devices such as an external monitors or back-up drives, and the AERO 15 OLED provides all the connectivity features that professional users require. With high-speed Thunderbolt 3, HDMI and DisplayPort connectors, the AERO 15 OLED can drive up to three external monitors for graphics, design and video-editing work. There are three USB 3.1 connectors and USB-C for connecting additional peripherals and accessories, as well as a built-in Ultra High Speed memory card reader for quickly transferring photos and video. You’ll need high-speed network connectivity at all times, so the AERO 15 OLED also includes KillerTM Ethernet for your office network, and the latest KillerTM Wifi 6  for high-speed, reliable wifi. With a built-in fingerprint sensor and support for Windows Hello, the AERO 15 OLED provides the security you need to keep important work files safe from prying eyes.

With unparalleled performance, the AERO 15 OLED is the perfect laptop for content creators who need to tackle demanding multimedia work. With its sleek, stylish design, long-lasting battery and versatile connectivity, the AERO 15 OLED will make sure you get the job done, wherever you are.
