Reviews for the Asus G53SX-SZ019V

80% Asus G53SX review
Source: PC Advisor English
The Asus G53SX will please a very specific group of people, and disappoint others. Gamers looking for power in an inexpensive package may overlook the bulkiness and the poor audio quality (which headphones can quickly remedy). But the G53SX's ponderous weight and its inability to perform basic multimedia tasks, such as streaming a Netflix video, make it a poor fit for some other potential buyers.

Straight out the Republic of Gamers series (RoG for those in the know), here we have the Asus G53SX. It's a gamer-oriented laptop, with impressive performance in a compact 15.6-inch design. In spite of lacking a Full HD panel and a Blu-ray player, the G53SX does what it says on the tin. This 15.6-inch is a powerful laptop that will satisfy the gamers amongst you.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M:

The successor of the GeForce GTX 460M based on the new GF116 chip. The performance is about 13% better than the 460M but with similar power requirements due to hardware optimizations.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » 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.  
2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

3.9 kg:

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).


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
