Gigabyte probably feels that buyers of 15" gaming laptops need more choices. To wit, the company is offering two completely different machines with the same screen size. The P56 is a smaller version of the 17.3" P57X v6 desktop-replacement-style gaming laptop we recently put through the wringer, while the Sabre 15 has a more graceful approach to gaming on the go.
The P56 packs an Intel Kaby Lake seventh-generation Core i7-7700HQ quad core processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, delivering about as much gaming performance as one can reasonably expect from a 15.6" laptop. The standard display is a 1080p affair, but there's an option for a 3840x2160 panel. The keyboard offers per-key RGB LED lighting, and an optional UHD Blu-Ray drive lets users really show off that 4K display.
The Sabre 15 also packs a 1080p panel, but the machine seems to be focused more on portability rather than brute performance. The machine can be optioned with an Intel Kaby Lake seventh-generation Core i7 CPU. Despite the sleek form factor, Gigabyte still crams in Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 or GTX 1050 Ti cards for rendering on-screen graphics. The RGB LED-illuminated keyboard provides additional optic stimulation.
