Gigabyte has announced that it will be unveiling the world’s first Azure-powered laptop at CES 2019. The laptop will be a new version of the Aero 15, and in its press release, the company notes that the laptop will be able to determine the users’ patterns, and then “allocate the best CPU and GPU wattage usage to empower the optimised performance at all times.” While details of the laptop are not yet known, the press render shared by the company gives us a small glimpse as to what we can expect. The new Aero 15 should features at least one ethernet port, a USB 3.0 port, HDMI port, USB Type-C port (possibly Thunderbolt 3) and a 3.5mm audio jack. The keyboard tray features a numpad, and the camera is located on the hinge, and not the display bezel. It is not yet known if the laptop will be fully convertible via a 360-degree hinge. In its press release, Gigabyte noted that “the passive optimization experience will be a prime example of an AI-adaptive future that transforms digital to smart digital of the 5G era.” It is not clear if the company is alluding to the rising internet speeds in general, or if the laptop will support connectivity.
