The Asus G75VW-DS71 is nicely priced for a midrange gaming laptop, and it works as a multimedia behemoth. But it starts to wheeze when taxed with high resolution and detail settings. Think of it as a part-time gaming rig.

The Asus G75VW-DS71 pulls off a rare feat: It’s a massive gaming laptop without the massive price. For a reasonable $1,799, this 17.3-inch rig delivers one of Intel’s new third-generation (a.k.a. Ivy Bridge) processors. Big and powerful, quiet and affordable, the Asus G75VW-DS71 is a gaming laptop with a value proposition worthy of your attention.

The Asus G75VW-DS71 is a 17-inch desktop replacement notebook with a strong focus on gaming performance. Asus built it to have speed, especially the graphics performance and with the inclusion of a Thunderbolt port. While having good overall performance, it does fall a little short of what we expected.

ASUS touts the $1,799 G75VW as the ultimate fighting machine, and while that declaration may be more hyperbole than fact, the notebook is no slouch when it comes to gaming. The G75VW delivers where it really counts -- playing the latest games at silky smooth frame rates -- and it looks great doing it. Considering that a similarly configured Alienware M17x costs about $200 more, the G75VW is a good choice for anyone looking to buy a 17-inch gaming notebook.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M:

High-end graphics solution as part of the 600M series and the slowest enthusiast GTX model.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» 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.  


3610QM:

An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

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.

4.3 kg:

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