Gigabyte Announces the Thin Ultramax P35X Gaming Notebook

Posted by at 4:27 pm on December 3, 2014


Gigabyte has lunched the Ultraforce” P35X, which is a 15.6″ gaming laptop that weighs in at just 2.2 kg and measures 20.9 mm thin at its thickest point. That’s a little thicker than the Razer Blade’s 17 mm, but the spec show why that is needed

The laptop comes with either the Intel Core i7-4860HQ or the Core i7-4710HQ. Both are quad-core chips, although the former model comes with the more powerful Intel HD 5200 graphics built in. Factory memory configurations are either 4 GB or 8 GB, and it can be user-expanded to 16 GB.

For graphics, Gigabyte has filled the Ultraforce P35X with an Nvidia GTX 980M, which comes with 8 GB of GDDR5 memory. This GPU carries 1536 cores, and runs at 1038 MHz base, boosting if there is thermal headroom and throttling down when running on battery power. One of its features is a battery boost mode, which uses the Nvidia Geforce Experience application to change the game settings to battery-friendly levels when the system is unplugged.


Gigabyte didn’t take it easy on the storage front, either. The laptop can hold up to two 512 GB mSATA SSDs as well as two 2.5″ 2 TB HDDs, depending on the configuration. That might have forced Gigabyte to make the laptop a little thicker, because 2 TB 2.5″ hard drives are thicker than 1 TB drives, and the heatsinks in the laptop probably have less wiggle room, meaning they also had to be thicker. However, it definitely puts this laptop in a desktop-replacement class for many potential buyers.

For a display, Gigabyte packed the Ultraforce P35X with a full-HD IPS panel, although variants will be available with 2880 x 1620 pixel resolutions, as well.

Round out the package, is a fully-backlit keyboard, a Blu-ray burne.  In addition to the standard connectivity and ports we find on most laptops, the Ultraforce P35X includes a Mini-DisplayPort interface and a headphone jack with an SPDIF output. It also comes with 802.11ac WiFi.
