80% ASUS ROG Strix GL702VT 17.3in Gaming Notebook Review
Source: Kitguru English
We would have preferred the RAM in dual-channel configuration, as this will have an effect on performance in some areas. But with 16GB included, you won’t be having RAM-related issues for the foreseeable future, and there’s room for upgrade too. The lack of a SSD is another slight performance drawback, although at least the supplied hard disk has a healthy 1TB capacity – plenty of room for games downloads and a media collection.

The Asus ROG Strix GL702VT is a solid gaming laptop. It's lighter than most other 17-inchers and it offers solid performance and and excellent display, while remaining price competitive. Potential buyers will have to live with some of its shortcomings though, like the high-case temperatures under load and the somewhat poor battery life.

Asus Strix GL702VM-GC020T

The Asus Strix GL702 is truly a gamer’s wish come true. Gone are the days where gaming laptops bear mammoth and bulky forms. Asus newest offering is a gaming machine, which the Taiwanese manufacturer describes as “compact and potent”. At first glance, it is hard to believe that the GL 702 is a gaming rig. Its dimensions measure at 415 x 280 x 22~24 mm and it weighs barely 2.7 kg. This makes the Strix the ultimate platform for gaming on-the-go. Its slimness and sleekness may be deceiving; yet, its build is sturdy and robust. The Strix has a aluminium-plastic black exterior with orange accents on logos, the trackpad and the keys. The tactile gaming keyboard is clearly designed for gaming. The anti-ghosting keys increase the precision of the commands even when multiple keys are hit simultaneously. The keyboard also features the exclusive Overstroke technology, a stylish red backlight, a key travel of only 1.6 mm. The Asus Strix GL702 is equipped with a 17-inch panel with 178° ultra-wide viewing angle technology. Furthermore, gamers can choose between Full HD or 4K UHD resolution. Gamers are also offered more screen and less bezel, thus increasing users with a wider viewing experience. Nvidia’s G-SYNC technology greatly reduces lag, minimizes frame rate stutter, and eliminates visual tearing and thereby providing gamers with richer visuals.

Performance-wise, this machine is powered by a 6th generation Intel Core i5 dual-core processor combined with a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics with full Microsoft DirectX 12 support. The Strix GL702 is also fitted with 8 GB of DDR4 RAM. This meets a wide array of users’ needs from heavy gaming to productive multitasking including live streaming and video editing. Users have the option to boost the ROG Strix GL702 with up to a SATA 2 TB 2.5' HDD of storage space and 32 GB of RAM. It’s readiness for VR technology guarantees gamers of an immersive virtual reality experience. Its cooling system is equally impressive as it is integrated with a compact hyper-cool, triple-copper thermal module which uses heat pipes and three fans to increase CPU and GPU performance. Connectivity options consist of USB 3.1 Type C port, USB 3.0 ports, and a Thunderbolt port. Mounted on board is a webcam and this is complemented with noise-cancelling microphones. Sound quality is rich and audible as it is engineered by Icepower. Networking is supported by both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. It comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Home. The Asus Strix GL702VM-GC020T is clearly a gaming laptop that targets more normal users. While the ROG series takes on the heavyweight champions from Alienware, MSI and Razer, the Strix is made to take on normal consumer-level gaming laptops such as the Dell Inspiron 15. In some way, these machines are better than the hardcore gaming laptops because they can actually be used as a laptop.

80% Asus ROG Strix GL702VM review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
There’s little headroom for VR and future-proofing, it’s ergonomically middling, and it doesn’t have the features or power of pricier rivals. That said, the GTX 1060, solid Full HD screen and decent components elsewhere mean the GL702VM is an excellent and affordable gaming laptop.

This machine is inevitably built with compromise in mind, but the Asus gets it right in key departments. The GTX 1060 is an excellent mid-range GPU, the screen has the ideal resolution and G-Sync alongside decent quality, and the processor is capable.

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).

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.
