The Aorus 15P XC has an octa-core Core i7-10870H CPU and its GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU. Gigabyte has set the GPU's TGP to 130 Watt, which means it is almost operating at its maximum capacity (140 Watt) The notebook has another available slot for an M.2 2280 SSD (1x NVMe, 1xNVMe/SATA). It does not support RAID-0/1. The storage capacity is not particularly generous for a gaming notebook.
