Lastly, the cheaper Gigabyte G5 GD comes with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 laptop GPU.

Gigabyte claims that the G5 series of gaming laptops are equipped with performance-grade thermal solutions based on a dual-fan solution. Similarly, these laptops also feature a DTS: X Ultra capable audio system with virtual 7.1-channel surround sound support.

Worth The Asking Price?

The Gigabyte G5 series of gaming laptops seem like good mid-tier machines, capable of handling modern AAA titles at 1080p resolution.

If you are buying a gaming laptop in 2022, we definitely recommend you to get a device with either the Ryzen 6000 series of CPUs or 12th Gen Intel Core processors.
