The AORUS 17X can now be pre-ordered for US$3,899. The configuration includes a 17.3-inch 1440p display with 240 Hz refresh rate, Intel’s i9-13900HX processor, an RTX 4090 GPU, 32 GB DDR5-5600 and 2 TB of SSD storage.

First announced a few weeks ago at CES, Gigabyte’s top-of-the-line AORUS 17X gaming laptop is the first model with the new Intel Raptor Lake-HX and Nvidia RTX 4090 mobile processors to hit Amazon for pre-orders. The official product page is now live and reveals some more specs that were not mentioned in the CES press release. Shipping is scheduled for February 8.

Apart from the powerful Intel i9-13900HX processor with 24 cores and 32 threads that can boost to 5.4 GHz and the 175 W Nvidia RTX 4090 mobile GPU with 16 GB GDDR6 VRAM, the AORUS 17X model available on Amazon is also packing 32 GB of DDR5-5600 RAM and a 2 TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe SDD storage. Even though Amazon’s main product image mentions FHD for the display, the 17.3-inch screen is actually 16:9 2560 x 1440 with 240 Hz refresh rate, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and TÜV-certified.

Port selection includes a Thunderbolt 4 connector, 3x USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, audio combo jack, HDMI 2.1 and DP 1.4 video outputs and an Ethernet jack. Wireless connectivity is ensured via a Wi-Fi 6E adapter with integrated Bluetooth 5.2 support. Also provided are an RGB keyboard with per key macro support, 2x 2.5 W speakers, a 1080p webcam with Windows Hello support and a 99 Wh battery. The system weighs 6.17 lbs (2.8 kg) and has a profile of 0.86 inches (2.18 cm)

Amazon lists the AORUS 17X at US$3,899 without shipping. Still, this is only one of the configurations that will be made available, as the official product page also mentions that the processor options include the i7-13700HX and i9-13950HX, up to 64 GB RAM, up to 4 TB storage, as well as more affordable RTX 4080 dGPU variants.
