Reviewers from pcworld have found the following[***]:
Gigabyte's Aorus 17G gaming laptop looks like it should be loud, but it's not. On its default fan profile we registered the laptop at barely 38 dB. Cars driving by on the street registered more noise than the Aorus17G looping a graphically intense stress test. Gigabyte achieves the quietness by pairing the 8-core Core i7-10870H with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080.

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
Gigabyte Aorus 17G is a powerful gaming laptop that costs $2,099 / £2,199 / AU$3,599. It has an Nvidia 3070 laptop graphics card to power the latest AAA games. The already impressive 240Hz display has been replaced with a faster 300Hz one for an edge in competitive titles. It is more intended as a desktop replacement than an ultraportable laptop given its hefty size.

Gigabyte's 2021 refresh of the Aorus 17G is the first laptop we're looking at with a mobile RTX 3080 inside. This refresh also brings a 300Hz display to an Aorus laptop for the first time, plus sees the return of Aorus' mobile physical mechanical keyboard. The laptop scored 7895 points on multi-core tests and 1,265 on single-core testing.

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Gigabyte AORUS 17G (2021) is the first gaming laptop to feature an Nvidia 30-Series GPU. It features a snappy mechanical keyboard and wickedly fast 300Hz refresh rate. AAA games see a performance as high as 80fps at a 1080p resolution. It's not cheap, but this may well be the best gaming laptop currently available.
