Reviews for the Asus G53JW-3DE

80% Asus G53JW 3D review
Source: Pocket Lint English
For gamers who really must have it all, the Asus G53JW appears to have been sent from gaming heaven. Breathless i7 quad core processor speed, top flight Nvidia graphics capabilities and fully integrated 3D all conspire to make it a formidable, if pricey, beast. Overall, we’d rate the G53 is an extremely desirable piece of kit, with some minor caveats. It’s expensive, but if you want an all singing and dancing gaming transportable, then that price is justifiable. And naturally, your mates will just ooze envy at the sight of it.

ASUS G53JW-3DE Core i7 GTX 460M 3D Vision Gaming Notebook Review
Source: PC Perspective English
The sin of the ASUS G53JW-3DE is price. Nvidia 3D Vision requires that a laptop have a unique, low-resolution 120Hz display and special glasses that enable the stereoscopic 3D effects. These options don’t come cheap and as a result the price of the 3DE model rises to a stratospheric $1799 while the entry-level ASUS G53JW-XA1 retails for just $1349.

On its own, the Asus G53Jw-3DE is a powerful 3D gaming notebook: You get a Core i7 processor, Nvidia graphics, 3D display, and Blu-ray for $1,769. Another good choice in this category is the HP Envy 17 3D, which not only has a larger, brighter, and higher-resolution screen, but performs just as well, weighs less, and costs nearly $100 less. Still, Nvidia's 3D Vision supports more games than ATI's technology, which powers the Envy, and you don't have to use special software to start playing. While some may want to wait for Asus to bring 3D to its 17-inch G73J, which has a 1080p display, the 15.6-inch G53Jw-3DE is a solid 3D notebook.

Comment

Model: The technical press characterizes it as a gaming laptop with a high end price.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M:

High-end DirectX 11 graphics card based on the GF106 chip using GDDR5 graphics memory (up to 1.5 GB).

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


740QM:

The Core i7-740QM is a high-end quad-core CPU for laptops (in 2010) with a relative small base clock rate and a high Turbo Boost max frequency of 2.93 GHz (for one core). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow clocked quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 740QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.

17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

3.6 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.
