Aftershock has just launched their new Nova 15, which is targeted at those looking for a high-performance notebook that is able to replace their desktop, with no compromise on the quality of their gaming experiences.
The Nova 15 comes with features typically only seen in a desktop rig, such as powerful thermals, an impressive GPU in the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 max performance edition, and is capable of supporting i9 processors for faster and smoother gaming.
The display of the Nova 15 reportedly covers a wide colour gamut, with a refresh rate of 144hz, which will be good news to not just gamers but those hoping to do some creative work on the notebook as well. It also features a slim bezel on a 15.6-inch display and has GSYNC technology so that users will experience only tear-free visuals when using the notebook.
Those who are fans of customising their keyboards are in for a treat as the Nova 15 also has per-key RGB backlighting in their keyboards as well. Plus just like the Slate 15, the Nova 15 also comes with a precision trackpad and a fingerprint recognition built into the trackpad’s glass coating.
