INTEL CORE i9-11980HK i7-11800H

Gigabyte Aero 15 processor

Usually, in the market, most of the manufacturers don’t focus much more on the Intel core i9-11980HK chipset. But Gigabyte did it they made a laptop series with the Gigabyte AERO 15 OLED YD this series features the Intel Core i7 and core i9, both the series having an Intel 11th Gen processor.

Here we have gone talk about their about processor, basically, this laptop has arrived with the two different models one with Intel Core i9 11th gen and other has Intel core i7 11th gen. Only the differences are the CPU and price.

The Intel Core i9 11th gen comes with the $2,750, and Core i7 11th gen $2300.

The Intel Core i7 11th gen has a base clock speed 2.3GHz and a max of up to 4.6GHz. This is high-end octa-core Soc for gaming and mobile workstations. It belongs to the Tiger Lake H45 family and was announced in mid-2021.

Thanks to the all-new Tiger Lake processor, the i7-11800H should be similar or faster than the old Intel Core i9-10875H in single and multiple threaded performances and similar to the Ryzen 7 5800H. Therefore, the i7 is well suited for even very demanding tasks.

The chip is produced on the second-gen 10 nm Intel SuperFin process. The Soc also has improved UHD Graphics iGPU with 32 EUs which is similar to the Iris Xe iGPUs.

The default TDP is 45 W at 2.3GHz base speed, at 35 W the base clock speed decrease to 1.9GHz.

In simple terms, we can say the Intel Core i7-11800H is the best performing laptop processor if you don’t have too much workload on it otherwise you want to choose an Intel Core i9-11980HK processor.

Intel Core i9-11980HK Ultra Performing Chipset

The Intel Core i9-11980HK is the latest platform Intel has to offers as of 2021, as part of the 11th Generation Intel Tiger Lake hardware platform.

This is also part of the Tiger Lake family H45 processor.  

The 11th gen Tiger Lake Core i9-11980HK is still an 8Cores and 16Threads with HyperThreading processor, now with a Base Clock speed of 2.6GHz an all-core Turbo-clock of 4.8GHz, and up to 5.0GHz Turbo in up to two cores with Thermal Velocity Boost 3.0. As a noticeable novelty, Intel allows OEMs to implement these processors at a 45 W TDP, or a higher 65 W cTDP in supported thermals design, in which case the base clocks jump to 3.3GHz.

Aside from the clock speed, the Intel Core i9-11980HK benefits from an increased amount of L3 Cache memory, Improved UHD graphics based on the Intel Iris XE technology, as well as theoretical improved IPC and efficiency, as this platform is partially based on Intel’s 10nm SuperFin lithography, and no longer just a 14nm  ++++ refresh.

In comparison . the Intel Core i9-11980HK is an ultra-powerful chipset. Core i9-11980HK is the fastest processor. If you want only on performance then the Intel Core i9-11980HK is a great option for you guys. Otherwise, we suggest to you if you don’t have the max budget then you can move on to the Intel Core i7-11800H, also they belong to the Tiger Lake H45 family then no doubt about the performance. This is another great option for the budget segment laptop buyers.

Also, the Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED has two models of laptop Intel Core i7-11800H and Intel Core i9-11980HK processor both those processors have the Tiger Lake H45 family and are great with their performance.

Graphics for Creators and Gamers

Graphics for creator and gamers they need much more improved graphics in their laptop while they utilize their actual performance they squeeze the Graphics memory and use it and through it. Until we called Graphics for Creator and Gamers.

Here you can see the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 GDDR6 8GB, RTX 3080 is a super-powerful graphics card in this segment, while the RTX 3090 is also a beast. But at this time the RTX 3080’s performance is amazing and faster than the other graphics card.

Edit videos better, from Ray, tracing and VR to AI-powered 8K video editing, Nvidia, they use the GPU in a laptop this is different from the desktop model consume the 230W power for graphics and the laptop GPU consume the 80-150 W, but in that machine Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED, they consume 105 Watts max. The laptop power adaptor is provided at 230 Watts which is insane. And after all the power-consuming components like CPU and their RGB backlit keyboard and OLED 4K display the consume remaining power.

While the numbers are lesser than the desktop model GPU but the performance wise no issue at all in the laptop GPU in the RTX 3080. When we render the 4K footage in the Gigabyte AERO 15 OLED or RTX 3080 desktop. Here we don’t see any major differences.

On the various benchmark scores, they say you less perform the laptop GPU with the 20-25% less performance. While the reason is that, this is a laptop GPU and they don’t consume more power. This is impossible to maintain the performance in smaller size chip. On the desktop GPUs, they are more spacious and do multiple changes, and make more powerful cause there have many more spaces. But maintaining the laptop with the almost same performance is a tuff job. While Nvidia maintains this, as here we see the 20-25% of performance drop on the laptop GPU. Well, we said this is an insane amount of work and, actually they give value to our money.

Dynamic Boost 2.0

New AI-powered Dynamic Boost 2.0 automatically delivers the needed power between the GPU, GPU Memory, and CPU for a larger performance boost than ever before. That means where your GPU is can not using then GPU automatically decreases their size and marge to the CPU and perform tasks. Again, for example, you are playing games on then you required GPU more than the CPU in this case the GPU automatically increased and the CPU decrease its volume. So your laptop is constantly optimizing for maximum performance while you’re gaming and creating.

Resizable Bar

Resizable BAR is an advanced PCI Express feature that enables the CPU to access the entire GPU frame buffer at once, improving in many games.  From these Bars the command transfer speed is too high, they deliver the data with PCI express features that enable the CPU to GPU access the entire GPU frame buffer at once.

DLSS

Nvidia DLSS delivers a massive performance boost at the same power by using the Tensor Cores to do groundbreaking AI rendering. DLSS is a new and improved deep learning neural network that boosts frame rates and generates beautiful, sharp images for your games. It gives you the performance headroom to maximize ray tracing settings and increase output resolution. DLSS is powered by dedicated AI processors on RTX GPU called Tensor Cores.

WINDFORCE INFINITY NEXT-GEN COOLING

Gigabytes’ new Windforce infinity Next-Gen cooling technology gets a new upgrade with the AERO 15 OLED creators laptop. All new WINDFORCE Infinity comes with two 71-blade fans, 5-heat pipes, and copper heat fins that increase overall heat dissipation by 30%.

While playing games you can increase the fan speed with help of Gigabyte Control Center, there are different modes that you can choose from GAMING, NORMAL, QUIET, AND DEEP CONTROL. Each mode different fan curve. This is defined by system temperature and fan speed, with a steeper one, for example, in Gaming mode the fan speed would raise more aggressively. Meaning the fan speed is higher when the system temperature is lower to cool the system faster and increase performance.

There’s another mode, Deep Control, that allows users to customize the fan curve. Users can also apply hotkey FN+ESC to turn on maximum fan speed and cool down the system instantly.

Next-Gen Connectivity

Gigabyte Aero 15 ports

Finding the quickest way to transfer your creative works around the globe comes second to none. AERO 15 OLED laptop supports 1Gbps cable internet and latest-gen internet standard 802.11AX(Wi-Fi 6) of up to 2.4Gbps transfer speed. Your creative data is set to transfer without limitation.

Even the Wi-Fi 6 is much faster than the previous-gen Wi-Fi 5. This is 3x faster than the Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth V5.0 +LE.

This is a huge massive upgrade with the Wi-Fi 6, especially, if you are a gamer, as we think you don’t have the patience to wait a couple of seconds for network connectivity. For you guys, the Wi-Fi 6 is better connectivity and a lag-free connection. Enjoy the streaming without any disturbance.

Gigabyte AERO 15 OLED has Realtek 8125-BG(2.5) Ethernet.

Storage

Gigabyte Aero 15 SSD Slot

There are two different models for storage, the Intel Core i9-11980HK is coming with the PCIe Gen 4 1TB NVMe SSD+ PCIe NVMe Gen 3 512GB of the second SSD. While those who need more space for storing games and their data then the 1TB+512GB is enough for those people. After we come on to the Intel Core i7-11800H processor, this allows to 1TB of PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD and there is also a second slot of adding the PCIe NVMe SSD, but this has PCI Gen 3, as the lower.

But still, we have a dual PCI slot for upgrading the NVMe SSD. The 11th gen Intel Core i7-11800H comes with only 1TB of PCIe Gen4 and the 11th gen Intel Core i9-11980HK comes with the 1TB+512GB PCIe Gen 4 and PCIe Gen 3.

If you want to upgrade more then you can replace both these SSD and replace it with higher storage.

The Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED has been RJ45, Headphone/Microphone Combo Jack, USB 3.2(gen. 1), mini DP 1.4, HDMI 2.1, USB 3.2(gen. 1), USB 3.2(gen. 1), Thunderbolt 4, UHS-II SD Card Reader, or DC-in jack.

The Thunderbolt 4 transferring data and video display are all done in just one port. The Intel Thunderbolt 4 achieves a transfer speed of up to 40Gbps and 8X faster than USB 3.1, in addition to a reversible USB-C transfer port interface. Supports up to 4K video output and gets unbridled capabilities, endless possibilities.

UHS-II card reader, the AERO comes with a UHS-II SD card reader that offers a transfer rate of up to 300MB/s, which is 12 times faster than a traditional SD card reader. Don’t waste time staring at the screen for files to be transferred ever again.

UHS-II:300MB/s

Standard SD:25MB/s 12x faster. HDMI 2.1 The HDMI 2.1 port supports an image output of up to [email protected] In addition to Thunderbolt 4, you can create a unique multi-display system with the AERO laptop.

Image output up to [email protected] this is immersive. With the [email protected] the resolution is very good while playing the games. All with that the 120Hz rate is super solid and we can’t imagine the performance with the Samsung AMOLED screen.

Dual-Channel DDR4 -3200MHz RAM

The Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED has DDR4 dual-channel 2 x 8GB DDR4 3200MHz RAM. This is extremely faster and ultimate performing laptop RAM. There are dual 8GB of Crucial RAM is fitted on that Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED, but it depending on the region.

This is easily upgradable and you can upgrade it to a max of 64GB of 3200MHz. As this also comes with the 16GB of 3200MHz RAM then I didn’t think that is less. Otherwise, we have an option to upgrade it with the 2 x 32GB 3200MHz RAM. Here we are assuming more MHz on the RAM, but unfortunately, there are no options of higher MHz. Still, the Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED has 3200MH but if they give us 3466MHz then better it.

Keyboard and Touchpad

Gigabyte Aero 15 keyboard

The Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED has RGB backlit keyboard, which has various options for customization. The layout has a qwerty design, the keys are more balancing and looking so good with this Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED. Also,  the keyboard is place edge to edge like the Dell XPS series.

And finally, we move on to the touchpad of Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED, that all set to the left of, and under the touchpad fingerprint are placed on the top left corner. As you can unlock your laptop with your fingerprint. Also, it featured the Windows Hello support. The Gigabyte AERO 15 OLED laptop has a windows precision touchpad that supports registering multiple touch inputs.

The touchpad is looking normal and matt finish, the size is average for the touchpad. Keyboard and touchpad performance is really well, accrue and imprecise.

On top, of the keyboard, the HD camera with a nifty slider is placed that. The camera resolution is below average. It’s a 720p camera.

Minimalistic Design

Gigabyte Aero 15

This is Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED and the design of that one they looking simple and minimalistic and so gorgeous. But also, add some RGB lighting to catch the gamers who like that kind of thing. We are dealing with the 15.6” laptop, however, the actual dimension for those to note it is Width x 350.6MM, Depth x 250MM, and Height x 19MM, or nonother the way of looking it with 2KG.

This is quite a slim and lightweight laptop which is especially impressive. Even the high performance gives in the inside. The entire chassis is aluminum and super solid. All the design the great and RGB keyboard on this laptop. On the left side of this laptop you see the airflow vents on the left top side and below the shoe saw the multiple connectivity ports, over the right side also including an airflow vent below are the connectivity ports are mention.

Now around the back wall, we don’t have any additional ports, with due have some additional ventilation of the internal components. Turn the laptop over, we have some rubber feet to keep your laptop superior around and create some clearance for airflow. It also allows for the massive mass for the bulk of those components, which gives some ventilation.  Over the top of this laptop has AERO logo stick on the top, it lights up when we use the laptop this looks so stunting while user uses this laptop the logo is looking so amazing, also bottom of the top has some textured design and gives some valuable feedback.

Gigabyte Aero 15 build

99W Battery

Gigabyte Aero 15 battery

The battery shows this laptop provides 99W, while playing the games on it, it gives almost 3hours of battery life. Not a full day battery if we are doing normal work then it’ll give to 5-6hours of battery life. As always if you’ll be gaming make sure the charger is connected to the laptop, so the Nvidia power saving doesn’t kick in by having the charging connected then get the best performance to the GPU.

In my opinion, you see the major differences with or without a charger. When the charger is connected to the laptop. Then GPU consumes more power from the adaptor and they automatically kick on the gaming. In case you can not connect it to charging then you feel some frame drop and some issue while on the game. If you want better performance then make sure the charger is connected to the laptop, when you play the game and streaming.

It’s okay when we do over day to day work like rendering, CAD, and editing. We will manage it with the battery life.

Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED has a 230W adaptor for charging the laptop, 105W is also reserved for the power-hungry Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 GPU. That’ll be consuming around 105W power, and the remaining power is used for the screen and RGB backlit keyboard, CPU, and fans.
