Reviews for the Asus G53SW-IX089V

90% ASUS G53SW 3D Gaming Notebook Review
Source: TBreak English
I have to give it to ASUS; the G53SW made a great first impression and continued to exceed my expectations on pretty much every front. Yes, the 1366×768 resolution is disappointing, but the 120Hz screen and impressive performance by the GTX 460m at full to high settings is equally impressive. All components inside are topnotch (especially the Sandy Bridge i7-2630QM) and the overall performance of the notebook is exceptional compared to other notebooks in a similar price range.

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.  

2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
