The Taiwanese company Gigabyte has announced two new gaming notebooks for gamers on the go – the P57K and P57W. The two notebooks share most of the tech specs including the chassis and despite the oddly-looking design do not disappoint when it comes to the hardware inside.
We’ll start with the few differences between the two gaming laptops – the Gigabyte P57K comes with a GeForce GTX 965M graphics card with 2 GB of video memory, a 60.8 watt-hour battery and a 150W power adaptor, while the P57W features a GeForce GTX 970M graphics card with 3 GB of memory, a more powerful 75.8 watt-hour battery and a 180W power adaptor. The rest of the specs are the same – the notebooks feature a 17.3-inch IPS display at Full HD resolution, a quad-core Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor at 2.6 GHz (3.5 GHz Turbo), 8/16 GB of DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM memory that can be upgraded to 32 GB, a 128/256 GB SSD, and a 1 TB hard drive. The notebooks measure 421 x 290 x 24.9 mm, weigh around 2.9 kilograms and include Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1, USB 3.1 Type-C ports, HDMI 2.0, Mini DisplayPort and other connectors.
The Gigabyte P57W notebook sells for USD 1499. The price of the P57K is unclear but given the tech specs it should be lower than that of the P57W.
