Last year, Gigabyte revamped its Aero laptop and introduced a new 16” laptop. The Aero 16 is a premium content creation laptop, and it comes with Intel’s Alder Lake CPU and RTX 30-series GPU. In this article, we will discuss the specs, features, latest price, and availability of the Gigabyte Aero 16 (2022) in Nepal.
Gigabyte Aero 16 (2022) Overview:
Performance and Cooling
As the Aero 16 is a laptop targeted for creative workflow, it packs a lot of power. This laptop can be configured with up to Intel’s Core i9-12900HK and NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti. That said, the model currently available in Nepal comes with the Intel Core i7-12700H paired with RTX 3070 Ti. In addition to the benefits of the Ampere architecture, the RTX 3070 Ti also comes with NVIDIA’s Studio Drivers to facilitate content creation.
Like the Aorus 5, the Aero 16 also comes with Azure AI, software created in collaboration with Microsoft and Gigabyte. It works by learning the energy requirements of the different apps and adjusting the wattage of the CPU and GPU accordingly. As a result, the CPU/GPU is optimized for the optimal performance of each app.
Moving forward, the WindForce Infinity cooling setup on the Aero 16 consists of 59-blade fans and a total of five heat pipes. It handles thermal design power of up to 125W between CPU and GPU under the Performance mode.
Design and Display
Gigabyte Aero 16 has an aluminum-alloy unibody chassis manufactured using the CNC production process. The chassis is complemented by edges and textures. There’s a glowing AERO logo on the branding. Despite all the power it holds underneath, the Aero 16 can easily blend in the office setting.
The display is equally impressive. Here, you get a 16” 4K AMOLED screen made by Samsung Display. Bezels around the screen are minimal, and the screen covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color coverage. The laptop is individually factory calibrated and has X-Rite and Pantone Validation, so you won’t have to worry about color accuracy. Moreover, the display has a peak brightness of 500 nits, and it is VESA DisplayHDR 500 True Black certified.

Webcam, Keyboard, Audio
Gigabyte has included a tiny protrusion above Aero 16 2022’s top bezels to make room for the IR webcam. It is an HD cam that you can use to login into the laptop using Windows Hello.
