Reviews for the Asus Strix GL753VD-GC045T
Kaby Lake quad-core meets GeForce GTX 1050. After the launch of the high-end GPUs last fall, Nvidia now releases new Pascal mainstream graphics chips together with Intel's new Kaby Lake quad-core processors. The Asus GL753VD is one of the first notebooks with the brand-new hardware.

While it's not exactly stylish, the ROG Strix GL753 does undercut much of the Pascal-bearing laptop competition. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as well, so if you don't mind the design, you're left with a reliable, fully featured 1080p gaming machine. If the Strix GL753's pricing is already pushing your budget, you're not going to be able to get more power without spending a couple of hundred dollars extra. It's one of the cheapest entry points into the Pascal line, and you won't be wanting for storage or connectivity. That said, I prefer the more restrained styling and higher-quality build of the VR-ready Editors' Choice HP Omen 17, and depending on your needs, you can configure one that doesn't cost much more than the Strix.

The one exception is if you immediately need a laptop with more configuration options. You can still buy a version of the Alienware 17 R3 on Amazon (though Dell is phasing it out for newer models), some of which offer 4K displays. It's great for watching movies, but you sure won't be gaming at that resolution with a 980M GPU.

It makes great sense for a laptop gamer to get ASUS ROG Strix GL753VD. If you can accept less than maxed out settings at Full HD on the heaviest of games, there are no pitfalls I can think of. The overall graphics performance is solid, so is processor, RAM and all of that stuff. The large 17-inches panel is excellent for gaming and, say, photo editing. Of course you don’t want to carry this laptop around too much because it’s rather bulky and heavy (6 and half pounds) compared to regular laptops. But as a portable gaming station it is hard to beat this ASUS!

CommentNVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Notebook): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 960M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version. 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.
7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
