Reviews for the Asus G53JW-IX162V

Asus ROG G53JW-IX162V review
Source: T3 English
The lower screen resolution meant the Asus ROG G53JW-IX162V sailed through next generation 3D games. We'd love to see what this could do in 3D on a full HD screen because it romped in with over 40FPS on Call of Duty: Black Ops at 1366 x 768. We even got 52FPS with everything maxxed on 2D. Shame about the average 112 minutes battery life.

In summary, the Asus G53JW-IX162V offers excellent performance, though you'll pay for the privilege. It's very usable, thanks to the comfortable keyboard and trackpad, and it offers either excellent or utterly hideous design, depending on how you feel about laptops that are capable of eluding enemy radar. We're not bowled over, but we are satisfied.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 4 460 Go: Based on the Geforce 4 MX desktop chip with additional power saving functions. Features a higher core and memory clock rate than the 440 go.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

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.

15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

3.6 kg:

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