Reviews for the Asus G752VS-GC123T

ASUS ROG G752VS (GTX 1070) review – cool and powerful
Source: Laptop Media English version
Our general opinion of the ASUS ROG G752VS remains somehow unchanged. It’s an excellent premium gaming notebook with fast storage solutions (2x M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD), ridiculously powerful GTX 1070 on board and a cooling system to support all of this demanding hardware. The display is also of high quality, although it’s identical to the previous version while retaining the much-needed G-Sync technology paired with the 75Hz refresh rate. However, we are still puzzled by the fact that the G752VS continues the bad trend of excluding the iGPU from the system and thus ruining the battery life and crippling the 90Wh capacity. Also, the build quality is rather questionable in the long run – the construction feels rigid but the choice of materials is unsatisfactory – and falls behind some of its competitors like the Acer Predator 15 and Predator 17 – even compared to its distant predecessor the ASUS ROG G751 – while sharing the overcrowded port distribution on the right side. We hope this gets fixed in the future alterations of the laptop.

Model: It is apparent from recent releases that manufacturers are aggressively gearing up to ensure that their gaming devices are virtual-reality ready. The ROG G752VS by Asus is one such device. Despite shifting from the largely red and black tones common in gaming laptops, it still looks intimidating in its titanium and copper color scheme. The back is decked with red air vents, which enhance heat dissipation on this machine. Its dimensions measure at 42.8 x 33.4 x 5.3 cm and it weighs a hefty 4.4 kg (with battery). However, these kind of dimensions are quite normal for a proper gaming laptop. What lies under the hood is equally imposing. Powered by the 6th-generation Intel Skylake-K Unlocked Core i7 processor, an overclocking tool kit is offered and the G752VS can be overclocked up to 4 GHz. Featuring the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 GPU with Pascal architecture, Asus proves to be a game-changer in spearheading the G752VS into the sphere of virtual reality. It is capable of running to a maximum of 32 GB RAM and uses a 1 TB HDD and a 256 GB SSD for high speed storage.

The 3D Vapor Chamber, which is exclusive to the G752VS creates an efficient cooling system to keep the machine from overheating. Asus claimed that the ‘3D Vapor Chamber is filled with coolant that, when heated, change phases from a liquid to a gas and back again’, which then dissipates heat from high-end and overclocked processors. This is a groundbreaking cooling system in gaming laptops but its capabilities aren't proven yet and could possibly be further enhanced in upcoming gaming models. Asus also takes pride in its keyboard with its anti-ghosting feature. The keys are designed with 2.5 mm of key travel, which gives gamers greater comfort and accuracy. The ROG boasts a 17.3-inch (1920 x 1080) screen with IPS technology. Like in all ROG machines, it has really good brightness and color calibration. Enhanced with Nvidia G-SYNC display technology, the display’s refresh rate is synchronized with the GPU’s frame rate for ultra-smooth visuals. Asus has also integrated the ROG Gaming Centre, which is dedicated for gaming experience on its gaming laptops and desktops.

Sound quality is equally impressive as it is boosted with Sonic Studio and Sonic Radar. The G752VS is also packed with connectivity options which include USB, HDMI and Ethernet ports. The 8 cells 90 Wh battery gives the G752VS its much needed juice. Wireless networking is supported by both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. The machine is also built for power-users with business needs as it comes installed with Windows 10 Pro. For those who want to play VR games, the ROG G752VS is highly recommended.

Series: The Asus G752 Series consists of fully customizable, stylish looking, high-performance gaming laptops. Modern in design, the devices come in a beautiful Armor titanium color and brushed metal finish highlighted with plasma copper accents. The lid sports the ROG emblem and there is a dust-release thermal fan on the rear. The backlit, anti-ghosting keyboard is responsive and ergonomic. The Asus G752 Series models can be configured with various 6th generation Intel Core i7 processors, up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM and anywhere from a NVIDIA Geforce GTX956 up to a GTX980 GPU with dedicated VRAM ranging from 2 GB DDR5 to 8 GB DDR5.

You can choose from several storage setups ranging from HDD to HDD + SSD combinations with total capacity from 1 TB up to 1.5 GB. Display on the Windows 10 system is a 17.3 inch FHD IPS display panel with 1920 x 1080 resolution and G-Sync capability. The matte display delivers beautifully vivid colors and perfect contrast levels. Together with solid audio by Sonic Studio, this gives a complete multimedia package. Other features on the Asus G752 Series are Bluetooth 4.0, a 1.2 MP HD webcam, a DL DVD drive, a card reader, a USB 3.1 Type-C port, four USB 3.0 ports and an HDMI out. Battery life on the device is provided by a 6-cell Li-Ion pack rated at 66 Wh.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Mobile: Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

4.5 kg:

A laptop in this weight range is a heavyweight that you rarely carry around. This is meant for desktops and the devices tend to score with a large display and high performance and replace desktop devices.
