Reviews for the Asus G752VS-XB78K
Desktop replacement! The latest model of the ROG-series is supposed to be a big leap in terms of performance. Thanks to the brand-new and powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 from the new Pascal lineup, the chances are not bad. This article will find out whether this plan works and if Asus can beat the rivals.

The Asus ROG G752’s performance in our benchmarks was downright stellar courtesy of its quad-core Skylake processor, NVMe SSD, and the Pascal-based NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070. The laptop blazed through every benchmark, earning top scores in nearly all of them. It obviously has the chops to handle today’s games (at high quality settings) and it’s going to be an enviable gaming laptop for some time to come.

We are deeply impressed by the Asus ROG G752VS. Asus has used an impressive chassis that was employed with 9-series graphics and has performed a significant upgrade to 10-series Pascal that blows the doors off the previous model. We commented that the previous model was big and heavy and this is clearly still the case. However, when you factor in the increased performance you are less inclined to harp on about 4kg of bulk.

Performance is where the G752VS succeeds. The Core i7-6820HK in my review unit was around 25% faster than the i7-6700HQ we typically see in gaming laptops, helped along by a small factory overclock. SSD performance from the 1TB RAID 0 array was spectacular as well, although this option will set you back a fair bit of cash. There’s also a ridiculous 64 GB of RAM in this model, which I wouldn’t recommend purchasing considering it provides next to no performance advantage over 16 or 32 GB of DDR4 in games.

Aside from a quibble about keyboard flex and the $3,000 price, it's easy to recommend the Asus G752VS-XB78K for the dedicated gamer who can afford it. You get what you pay for, and it's hard to argue against performance that rivals what you get from gaming desktops. It's also true that there's not much competition out there—yet. In the coming months, there are sure to be less expensive and thinner laptops with the same Pascal graphics cards. And if the price tag makes you balk, it might be prudent to either wait or opt for the MSI GT62, which offers similar performance and the same graphics card for $1,000 less.

If you were considering buying a laptop with a Nvidia 980 GPU, stop. Because the G752V OC offers gaming performance 10 to 15 percent better than last-gen systems for hundreds less. 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.

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.
