Going into 2023 we already have an idea how the new round of CPUs for laptops will go given what we got on the desktop side. For Intel, Raptor Lake gave us an E-core count bump as well as a slight increase in clock speeds. On the GPU side we have the new RTX 40-series GPUs from NVIDIA and between the two, these new generation of graphics have something that really stands out: Frame Generation.
Regardless of where you stand if Frame Generation is advantageous or not, unless you’ve really tried, you cannot deny the actual, visual fidelity that the technnology brings. While it does drop off at a certain point, if the performance is there, then its going to be rare on when its a bad thing to enable.
For our first taste of this year’s gaming laptops we have the 2023 edition of the AORUS 15 with SKU code BSF-73PH754SH which features a 13th-generation Intel Core i7-13700H as well as an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 laptop GPU. Read on to find out more how this laptop performs in this review.
