Gigabyte Aero 15 SB is equipped with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660Ti graphics card with 6GB of GDDR6 memory and Optimus technology, but we find a GeForce RTX 2060 with 6GB of GDDR6 memory in the Gigabyte Aero 15 KB version and a GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q with 8GB of GDDR6 memory in the Gigabyte Aero 15 WB variant. The latest SKUs are Gigabyte Aero 15 XB with GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q (8GB GDDR6) and Gigabyte Aero 15 YB with GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q (8GB GDDR6). However, such equipment – accompanied by Intel Comet Lake-H processors – requires an effective cooling system, based on two fans (71 blades) and five heatpipes.

To the refresh of this model, Gigabyte has also added that of the Aero 17 which will now be available in a standard version and in one with an HDR display. Despite having the same weight (2.5Kg) and dimensions (396 x 270 x 21.4 mm), the two variants will stand out for the screen, which will be a 17.3-inch IPS 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels) HDR with color coverage 100% Adobe RGB, DeltaE Pantone and just 3mm thin bezels in the Aero 17 HDR. The hardware equipment will be identical to that of the younger brother, with the only difference of integrating two audio jacks, headphones and microphone
