Powered by an 11th Gen Intel i5 that's paired with the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 4GB DDR6 mobile GPU, the G5 is a stellar gaming rig for this price. Ideal for high performance 1080p gaming, the G5 is the perfect choice for gamers who don't quite need a 4K rig but want plenty of power under the hood.
As a 1080p gaming rig, the Gigabyte G5 GD is more than suited for the job. Running off the latest 11th Gen i5-11400H processor the G5 clocks upwards of 4.5GHz when gaming, which paired with the 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD offers ultra smooth frame rates and fast load times.
While the unit may run a little hot at times (which gaming laptops don't?), NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3050 Series GPU only clocks in at about 80W to help reduce the overall load.
Featuring an anti-glare IPS monitor that runs at up to 144Hz, the power under the hood of this gaming laptop ensures you'll be running most of your favorite games at ultra settings at 1080p.
For those who don't quite need 4K just yet, this laptop is a must-see for the price. It could do with a larger SSD as 512GB will fill up quite fast for serious gamers, but those can often be found on sale.
