Reviews for the Asus G72GX-TY013V

Asus G72GX Review
Source: notebookforums.com English
Overall I am very pleased with the performance. I happened to replace my previous HP HDX Dragon 20.1" which had a X9000, 8GB Ram and an 8800GTS with this unit due to recent surgery I had so I had to drop the weight of my baby HDX20 (15.5lbs Plus accessories) and shed 7lbs going to this unit. The overall performance with Windows7, and the newer GPU and with a similar CPU minus 3MB cache is better than I was expecting including an increase in 3DMark06 performance my nearly 3.6k in the score which is very nice.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M:

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 260M is essentially a higher clocked GeForce 9800M GTX based on the G92b core built under a 55nm manufacturing process. Because of the architectural difference, the 260M is less powerful (and quite dissimilar) to the similarly named desktop GeForce GTX 260.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
P8700:

Mid-range dual core processor with 3 MB level 3 cache and a TDP of 25 Watt.

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.

4 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.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
