We recently had the opportunity to get a hands on preview of Gigabyte’s new hyper-powerful Aorus X9 gaming laptop, and, while its angular looks aren’t for everyone, its twin GTX 1070 heart should please all gamers. So long as you’ve got some good noise-cancelling headphones that is.
With that in mind… here’s our pick of the best gaming headsets around today.
The Aorus X9 is the direct replacement of Gigabyte’s last SLI Aorus, the X7. We checked out the Aorus X7 Pro v5 almost exactly a year ago, but its SLI’d GTX 970M graphics silicon, and slimline chassis, meant it was a frustratingly noisey, powerful notebook. We were hoping then the new Pascal GPUs would offer some respite in future iterations.
