Illegear introduces its latest gaming laptop into the market, the Illegear Onyx, which features a bezel-less display. About the same time as last year, Illegear also introduced their first gaming desktop machine, the Illegear Troika with its “unique” shape and form. The Illegear Onyx will be the latest in its lineup of slim gaming laptops, which already includes the Illegear S5X.
The Illegear Onyx is the latest to join the gaming laptop lineup of bezel-less displays with its 15.6-inch INFINIVISION display. This helps to fit its rather large display into a 14-inch size. The Illeagear Onyx weighs at only 1.95kg and is 19.9 mm thin when closed. What’s weird is that there is no mention of Max-Q technology, which would probably be the next path for Illegear.
Within the chassis sits the latest Intel Coffeelake-H processors with an Intel HM370 express chipset. It will also be using two different NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics cards, mainly the GTX 1050Ti and the GTX 1060. It will start with 8GB of RAM but can be upgraded to a maximum of 32GB. The Illegear Onyx also comes with two M.2 PCIe SSD slots and one 2.5-inch SATA slot with a total capacity of 4TB.
Another feature worth noting is its usage of a full mechanical keyboard, powered by GENESWITCH. The keyboard promises an expanded lifespan of 50 million clicks alongside customisable RGB lighting, N-key rollover and anti-ghosting features.
There are three main variants for the Illegear Onyx. The top-of-the-line model will feature the Intel i7-8750H with a GTX 1060 GPU at RM6,899. The second model also comes with the Intel i7-8750H but with a GTX 1050Ti at RM5,999. The last model carries the i5-8300H with a GTX 1050Ti and is priced at RM5,499. All three laptops will come with base 8GB RAM alongside a 240GB M.2 SSD and a 1TB SATA HDD.
The laptops are slated to release from mid-April 2018 onwards and you can head over to Illegear’s official website for for information.
