Aorus (stylized as AORUS) /ˈ.rəs/ is a gamer-focused computer company that makes gaming laptops, motherboards, graphics cards, mechanical gaming keyboards, and other gaming peripherals. It is a subsidiary of Gigabyte Technology. Founded in 2014, their hardware is designed for their relatively slim and light gaming laptops which includes the X3, X5, and X7 series.[1] AORUS's corporate headquarters is located in Taipei, Taiwan.

Name[edit | edit source]

The brand name "AORUS" is coined from an Egyptian god, Horus,[2] known to be the god of sky and kingship, which is depicted as a falcon. The falcon head is therefore used as AORUS's brand logo. According to employees, the first letter of HORUS was changed to "A" to represent the brand as "A team".

Accessories[edit | edit source]

AORUS also designs, produces and markets various gaming accessories such as backpacks[3] and mousepads.[4] Graphics cards are also about to be launched. [5]
