80% Asus ROG G752VS OC Edition Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The $2,499 Asus also sports a sleek and refreshing gunmetal and copper design, a bright, 17.3-inch full-HD screen and a ton of customizable settings and overclocking utilities, thanks to the ROG Gaming Center app. As new gaming laptops with 1070 GPUs come out this fall, the G752VS OC has set a higher bar for what other laptop makers will have to beat.

ASUS ROG G752VS Review: Desktop-class Gaming
Source: Unbox English
The ASUS ROG G752VS certainly is an impressive notebook. With the new Pascal GPUs from NVIDIA, gaming notebooks can finally claim to have the equivalent performance to desktops, though obviously you’ll still be paying a premium for the privilage of enjoying “mobile” gaming. In this case, you’re looking at a steep price tag of Php 189,995. At that price you can probably build your own gaming PC with a bit of cash left over, but then again it’s not the same thing as being the proud owner of an ROG-branded machine.

90% Review: Asus ROG G752 OC Edition - Faster than many desktop gaming PCs
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The G752VS is certainly impressive. It offers almost double the a level of gaming performance over previously available single-GPU notebooks, which is insane. It’s not a one-trick pony, either — both its quad-core CPU, DDR4 memory, and PCIe SSD are top-shelf all the way.

ASUS ROG G752VS Review

The ASUS ROG G752VS is definitely a powerfyl gaming laptop packed with a generous display, beefy specs, and a premium body with a cool design that just screams gaming. Performance-wise, it can run some of the most demanding games at above 30fps at UHD resolution and 60fps at an easy Full HD.

80% Faster than most gaming PCs (including desktops)
Source: PC World English
The G752VS is certainly impressive. It offers almost double the a level of gaming performance over previously available single-GPU notebooks, which is insane. It’s not a one-trick pony, either—both its quad-core CPU, DDR4 memory, and PCIe SSD are top-shelf all the way. This notebook is a desktop replacement, with the same amount of performance. And it’s priced quite fairly, even though $2,500 might seem exorbitant to people not used to gaming laptops. All of the fully loaded GTX 1070 notebooks we found online fell between $2,200 and $2,600, and almost all of them had the exact same specs.

80% Asus Republic of Gamers G752VS OC
Source: Computer Shopper English
As far as big gaming notebooks go, the Asus RoG G752 OC Edition is something of a classic. It’s big in every way, from its expansive G-Sync display to its stellar performance. Its 1.5-inch thick, 8.9-pound chassis isn’t something you’ll want to transport often. But if you do, it had enough battery life in our testing to keep it going for at least four hours if you choose to use it off a power plug for ordinary tasks.

Series: The Asus G752 Series consists of fully customizable, stylish looking, high-performance gaming laptops. Modern in design, the devices come in a beautiful Armor titanium color and brushed metal finish highlighted with plasma copper accents. The lid sports the ROG emblem and there is a dust-release thermal fan on the rear. The backlit, anti-ghosting keyboard is responsive and ergonomic. The Asus G752 Series models can be configured with various 6th generation Intel Core i7 processors, up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM and anywhere from a NVIDIA Geforce GTX956 up to a GTX980 GPU with dedicated VRAM ranging from 2 GB DDR5 to 8 GB DDR5.

You can choose from several storage setups ranging from HDD to HDD + SSD combinations with total capacity from 1 TB up to 1.5 GB. Display on the Windows 10 system is a 17.3 inch FHD IPS display panel with 1920 x 1080 resolution and G-Sync capability. The matte display delivers beautifully vivid colors and perfect contrast levels. Together with solid audio by Sonic Studio, this gives a complete multimedia package. Other features on the Asus G752 Series are Bluetooth 4.0, a 1.2 MP HD webcam, a DL DVD drive, a card reader, a USB 3.1 Type-C port, four USB 3.0 ports and an HDMI out. Battery life on the device is provided by a 6-cell Li-Ion pack rated at 66 Wh.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (Laptop): Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » 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.  
6820HK: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.

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).


84%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
