Reviews for the Asus G551VW

70% An excellent balance of price and performance
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Asus G551V walks a very fine line between the two. It’s built like the Dell and priced like the G501VW. It’s performance is not as erratic as the G501VW and better than the Inspiron. All things considered, I think the Asus G551V is the better deal here. If you really are looking for a laptop in the Rs 1,00,000 range, look no further than the Asus ROG G551VW. Just ensure that you’ve uninstalled all Asus bloat before using it though.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series. 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.  
6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
