Reviews for the Asus G70s

Asus G70s
Source: PC Pro English
There's been a flurry of Asus laptops landing on PC Pro's doorstep of late, but while last week saw the arrival of its compact Eee PC 900, the latest offering is the utter antithesis of the Eee's petite charms. The G70s doesn't concern itself with portability, value for money or educational applications; it's big, brash, heavy enough to give even the beefiest of PC Pro's readers a nasty backache, and has not one but two graphics cards secreted inside its gargantuan proportions. It was by sheer chance that the Asus G70s found itself sitting alongside Acer's giant-sized desktop replacement, the Aspire 8920G Gemstone Blue, but if we'd thought laptops couldn't get much bigger than Acer's Blu-Ray touting, 18.4in-screened monster, we were sorely mistaken.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GT SLI: 2 GeForce 8700M GT graphic cards combined by SLI offer very good performance data but also a high current consumption. The SLI performance advantage may be very low (depending on the SLI support of the game).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T9500: Upper middle class laptop CPU for Santa Rosa based laptops (FSB 800). The T9550 offers only a slightly higher core clock, but features a 1066 FSB.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.10":

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.

5 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.
