The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU is a high-end graphics processor for laptops. It is based on the AD106 chip and uses the Ada Lovelace architecture. The RTX 4070 offers 4 cores (out of 608 in the AD7) and a 680-bit memory bus. The RTX 106 mobile uses 128GB of GDDR4070 dedicated graphics memory clocked at 8Gbps (effective). TGP (Total Graphics Power) can be configured between 6W and 16W (+35-115W Dynamic Boost from the CPU), resulting in different levels of performance (for example, the desktop RTX 15 Ti uses 25W for comparison). The boost clock ranges from 4070MHz (at 285W TGP) to 1230MHz (35W).

Performance is lower than the desktop RTX 4070 Ti. The RTX 4070 offers 144 Tensor Cores (Gen 4) that enable DLSS 3 technology, including frame generation for supported games. In addition, 36 ray tracing cores (4th generation) can be used to create ray tracing effects in supported games.

The RTX 4070 GPU core clock is 2225 MHz in FurMark, while it reaches 2300 MHz in games. The temperature of the graphics card reaches 86 degrees Celsius at the peak of the stree test.


With WINDFORCE Infinity cooling technology, thin fan blades provide more space for air exchange. The use of high thermal conductivity materials with phase change improves cooling efficiency and allows you to unleash the powerful performance of the processor and graphics card in a thin laptop while maintaining a comfortable working experience. WINDFORCE Infinity keeps you cool while you play.

thermal 01

The 5 built-in heat pipes quickly dissipate heat from the CPU, GPU, and VRAM to the exhaust vents, ensuring high performance stability. Powerful dual 72-blade fans continuously draw in cool air and expel internal heat.

thermal 02

Each fan blade is only 0,2mm thin. Reducing the thickness by 20% improves their density and airflow space, providing better airflow. The powerful aerodynamics of the special blade curvature design creates a stronger airflow and provides unprecedented cooling.

thermal 03

Thin thermal plates only 0,15mm thick are arranged around 4 outlets, giving a total plate area of ​​107400mm. A 39% increase in plate area speeds up cooling.

All games were taken at the discretion of the editors, from the position for which it would now be possible to buy this new product. We also tested how the novelty behaves in 4K resolution with an external monitor. We have not taken synthetics seriously for a long time, we are only interested in games:
The Witcher 3

re 4 

In Resident Evil 4 Chainsaw Demo laptop Gigabyte AORUS 15 BSF works fine, but there is not enough video memory for 4K...


The Gigabyte AORUS 15 BSF is a high-end gaming laptop with a state-of-the-art processor and discrete graphics that delivers high performance and ease of use.

The laptop is equipped with an Intel Core i7-13700H processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 discrete graphics card, which allows you to run modern games with high performance and enjoy high graphics settings. Of course, in 4K for maximum settings without DLSS technology, it will not cope, but with its native QHD resolution, it copes without problems in the vast majority of cases.

In addition, the Gigabyte AORUS 15 features a QHD 165Hz quality IPS screen, making it ideal for fast-moving games like first-person shooters. The laptop also has a high-quality sound system, and its keyboard has RGB backlighting that allows you to customize colors and lighting effects.

WINDFORCE Infinity cooling technology provides reliable cooling through the use of ultra-thin fan blades, high thermal conductivity phase change materials, 5 heat pipes and thin thermal plates. Powerful dual fans with 72 blades provide continuous airflow and efficiently dissipate internal heat, allowing you to unleash powerful CPU and graphics performance in a thin laptop while maintaining a comfortable work experience - in our opinion, the acoustic comfort in gaming AORUS 15 BSF is one of the best for gaming laptops.

All in all, the Gigabyte AORUS 15 is a high-performance, easy-to-use gaming laptop with state-of-the-art technology and features for gamers and professionals looking for high-quality graphics and processing power.


- good performance up to QHD

- DLSS 3.0 support

- pretty attractive price


- 8 gigabytes of video memory may not be enough for some current and future game novelties, texture settings will have to be reduced...


best choice

Something mobile 4070 came out rather weak, like a 3070Ti laptop with the same TGP. And again 8 GB of memory.

This comment was made by the moderator on the site

TDP is what it is. in laptops in some games (which fry the video chip is not sickly) there is not much difference between 3080 and 3060. The video chip rests on the temperature and resets the frequencies so as not to overheat. 3070 in laptops is always weaker than desktop 3070 due to heating.

Not enough video memory, 4070 mobile analogue of the most likely future desktop 4060

It pulls well, and dlss3 imba, I hope it will be used more and more often.
Ddr5 4000 sl40 is of course cruel, I would immediately change it.

This comment was made by the moderator on the site

the fact that the laptop has 2 memory sticks of 8 gigs is already good. very often in laptops they stupidly put one bar on 16 gig. and that's where it's really sad.
