Gaming for everyone. Affordably cheap gaming pleasure for consumers is the aim of the Asus G2K. The visually outstanding 17 inch desktop replacement has a very bright display and a wide range of interfaces such as HDMI and S-ATA ports. An AMD Turion 64 X2 CPU with 2.2 GHz as well as an ATI Mobility Radeon HD2600 graphics card take care of the performance. You will find out how this notebook is going to performance against its competitors equipped with Intel CPUs and nVidia GPUs in the following.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600: This is a DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI and direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS graphic card for laptops and performs in games much better than the Nvidia card.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.


TL-64:

In 65nm produced dual-core processor based on the K8 core. Compareable performance to a 2.0 GHz Core Duo CPU with 1MB Level 2 Cache (Celeron Dual Core e.g.).
