86.8% Asus ROG G752VS Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Desktop replacement! The latest model of the ROG-series is supposed to be a big leap in terms of performance. Thanks to the brand-new and powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 from the new Pascal lineup, the chances are not bad. This article will find out whether this plan works and if Asus can beat the rivals.
Asus ROG G752 Review: A Pascal Packing Mobile Powerhouse
Source: Hot Hardware English version
The Asus ROG G752’s performance in our benchmarks was downright stellar courtesy of its quad-core Skylake processor, NVMe SSD, and the Pascal-based NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070. The laptop blazed through every benchmark, earning top scores in nearly all of them. It obviously has the chops to handle today’s games (at high quality settings) and it’s going to be an enviable gaming laptop for some time to come.

90% ASUS ROG G752VS (XB78K OC Edition) Laptop Review
Source: Kitguru English version
We are deeply impressed by the Asus ROG G752VS. Asus has used an impressive chassis that was employed with 9-series graphics and has performed a significant upgrade to 10-series Pascal that blows the doors off the previous model. We commented that the previous model was big and heavy and this is clearly still the case. However, when you factor in the increased performance you are less inclined to harp on about 4kg of bulk.

75% Asus ROG G752VS Laptop Review: GeForce GTX 1070 Inside
Source: Techspot English version
Performance is where the G752VS succeeds. The Core i7-6820HK in my review unit was around 25% faster than the i7-6700HQ we typically see in gaming laptops, helped along by a small factory overclock. SSD performance from the 1TB RAID 0 array was spectacular as well, although this option will set you back a fair bit of cash. There’s also a ridiculous 64 GB of RAM in this model, which I wouldn’t recommend purchasing considering it provides next to no performance advantage over 16 or 32 GB of DDR4 in games.

80% Asus ROG G752VS-XB78K Overclocked Edition
Source: PC Mag English version
Aside from a quibble about keyboard flex and the $3,000 price, it's easy to recommend the Asus G752VS-XB78K for the dedicated gamer who can afford it. You get what you pay for, and it's hard to argue against performance that rivals what you get from gaming desktops. It's also true that there's not much competition out there—yet. In the coming months, there are sure to be less expensive and thinner laptops with the same Pascal graphics cards. And if the price tag makes you balk, it might be prudent to either wait or opt for the MSI GT62, which offers similar performance and the same graphics card for $1,000 less.

80% Asus ROG G752V OC
Source: Laptop Mag English version
If you were considering buying a laptop with a Nvidia 980 GPU, stop. Because the G752V OC offers gaming performance 10 to 15 percent better than last-gen systems for hundreds less. The $2,499 Asus also sports a sleek and refreshing gunmetal and copper design, a bright, 17.3-inch full-HD screen and a ton of customizable settings and overclocking utilities, thanks to the ROG Gaming Center app.

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.  

6820HK: 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.


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.

4.51 kg:

In former years, this weight was representative for laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, 17 inch laptops weigh less than that.

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).

82.36%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
