Reviews for the Asus G75V

88% Review Asus G75V Notebook | Notebookcheck
The New Star of the Gaming Heavens. Asus has re-worked its 17 inch giant so as to be able to compete in 2012. The new model has a fresh look and the latest hardware. Thanks to the Ivy Bridge CPU and GeForce 600 graphics card, the G75 can leave its predecessor behind in the dust. Is the fan still as quiet as it used to be in 3D use?
60% Asus G75V Review
Source: English version
The ASUS G75V is priced at a hefty Rs. 139,999, which is a lot of money for a notebook. While there’s no doubting its performance, this is not something we could easily recommend to everyone. It’s a very heavy laptop, so it’s not something you could carry to work or college everyday. At the same time, the price of the G75V is enough for you to be able to put together a very impressive gaming rig, one that could effortlessly beat the G75V’s performance. The G75V is then for very niche customers, the ones who frequent tournaments and LAN parties and don't want to carry their bulky gaming rigs with them.

ASUS G75V: Ivy Bridge in 3D
Source: Inside HW English version
Besides the ROG notebook as such, G75VW gives you the latest Intel CPU with excellent performance, the (allegedly) most recent generation of NVIDIA GPU with 3D capabilities, a large SSD, enough RAM to be safe for the lifetime of this notebook, and a large charger that can be actively used in self-defence. All features of the ultimate gaming machine stand ticked, and the excellent performance it provides makes anything less than a Approved award an understatement.

ASUS G75V Review: Gaming Goes Ivy
Source: PC Perspective English version
The ASUS G75 replaces the G74 as my go-to recommendation among pre-built gaming laptops. Other competitors can match ASUS on performance, but there’s more to this system than that. This is a winning combination of design, performance and price that will sure to appeal to gamers that don’t have over two grand to spend.

Asus G75VW review – for sure one of the best 2012 gaming laptops
Source: Mikes Quarter English version
In the end, the Asus G75 is for sure an impressive laptop, especially the G75VW top-config I got to test here. When compared to last year’s G74, it’s significantly faster, while still running cool and quiet. Asus also made a couple of changes, making the whole thing slimmer, adding a backlit keyboard, a 2.1 sound system and a Thunderbolt port. However, I do feel that some aspects could still be improved and I’m looking especially at that keyboard.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M: Renamed GeForce GTX 570M with slightly higher core clock speeds

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.  

3720QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1250 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» 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.

4.352 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.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. is a major Taiwanese computer hardware manufacturer based in Taipei, founded in 1989. Under the Asus brand name, the company manufactures a wide range of products, including laptops, desktops, motherboards, graphics cards, monitors, smartphones and networking equipment, complete systems and PC components for end users.

Under the ROG (Republic of Gamers) brand name, ASUS manufactures gaming laptops known by gamers for their powerful specifications, dedicated graphics cards, high refresh rate displays and advanced cooling systems.

Beyond gaming, a wide range of notebooks are offered for different needs and budgets, from ultra-slim and lightweight ultrabooks to versatile 2-in-1 convertibles and budget-friendly options. In 2023, Asus had a 7% global market share of the PC market.

Customer satisfaction with ASUS notebooks concerns performance, the features, and the good price-performance ratio of ASUS notebooks. However, as with any brand, there are occasional reports of problems such as overheating, driver compatibility, or build quality issues.

79.33%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
