Product Overview X9: For The Chosen

Design, Power, Portable

Furthermore, taking the title for the thinnest laptop that features true mechanical keyboard and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 SLI graphics configuration. These are just some of the qualities that makes a machine worthy to own. The AORUS X9 is born.


Design

Exotic Chassis Design: For the Chosen
Attractive, striking and out of the ordinary. The X9 design philosophy screams with exotic properties, taking cues from modern supercars and stealth fighter jets, the beautifully shaped aluminium expresses unique flowing motions, standing out from the crowd that are full of mundane designs. You have fought to victory and desire to be different. The X9 is designed to be an expression of your untamed characteristic, it is surely for the chosen.

AORUS HUD: Functional RGB Lighting
A one-of-a-kind central RGB HUD that is not just for show. Extra information such as the volume, battery indicator, CPU/GPU temperature and more, can be shown through the individual RGB strip that makes up the AORUS HUD. You can also set the HUD to sync with the surrounding RGB chassis lighting to create the all-around effect to your liking.

RGB Fusion Surround: The Heartbeat of a Beast
RGB lighting is normally found on keyboards. Now with the X9, we have surrounded the chassis with four RGB LED strips that has a multitude of lighting effects for you to choose from. Beyond the stealth of the X9, comes the option to light up the exterior for that extra eye-candy and make the X9 truly yours.

Maximum Aluminium: Feel and Sense the Quality
The X9 takes no compromises when it comes to the built material. You will find quality aluminium contractions throughout the X9 chassis, AORUS has gone through a tremendous amount of great engineering in order to create a chassis that is well built without sacrificing performance, opting for aluminium for areas that would normally be built with lower quality materials. Feel the difference.
