80% ASUS ROG Strix GL702VT 17.3in Gaming Notebook Review
Source: Kitguru English
We would have preferred the RAM in dual-channel configuration, as this will have an effect on performance in some areas. But with 16GB included, you won’t be having RAM-related issues for the foreseeable future, and there’s room for upgrade too. The lack of a SSD is another slight performance drawback, although at least the supplied hard disk has a healthy 1TB capacity – plenty of room for games downloads and a media collection.

The Asus ROG Strix GL702VT is a solid gaming laptop. It's lighter than most other 17-inchers and it offers solid performance and and excellent display, while remaining price competitive. Potential buyers will have to live with some of its shortcomings though, like the high-case temperatures under load and the somewhat poor battery life.

Asus Strix GL702VM-GC020T

The Asus Strix GL702 is truly a gamer’s wish come true. Gone are the days where gaming laptops bear mammoth and bulky forms. Asus newest offering is a gaming machine, which the Taiwanese manufacturer describes as “compact and potent”. At first glance, it is hard to believe that the GL 702 is a gaming rig. Its dimensions measure at 415 x 280 x 22~24 mm and it weighs barely 2.7 kg. This makes the Strix the ultimate platform for gaming on-the-go. Its slimness and sleekness may be deceiving; yet, its build is sturdy and robust. The Strix has a aluminium-plastic black exterior with orange accents on logos, the trackpad and the keys. The tactile gaming keyboard is clearly designed for gaming. The anti-ghosting keys increase the precision of the commands even when multiple keys are hit simultaneously. The keyboard also features the exclusive Overstroke technology, a stylish red backlight, a key travel of only 1.6 mm. The Asus Strix GL702 is equipped with a 17-inch panel with 178° ultra-wide viewing angle technology. Furthermore, gamers can choose between Full HD or 4K UHD resolution. Gamers are also offered more screen and less bezel, thus increasing users with a wider viewing experience. Nvidia’s G-SYNC technology greatly reduces lag, minimizes frame rate stutter, and eliminates visual tearing and thereby providing gamers with richer visuals.

Performance-wise, this machine is powered by a 6th generation Intel Core i5 dual-core processor combined with a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics with full Microsoft DirectX 12 support. The Strix GL702 is also fitted with 8 GB of DDR4 RAM. This meets a wide array of users’ needs from heavy gaming to productive multitasking including live streaming and video editing. Users have the option to boost the ROG Strix GL702 with up to a SATA 2 TB 2.5' HDD of storage space and 32 GB of RAM. It’s readiness for VR technology guarantees gamers of an immersive virtual reality experience. Its cooling system is equally impressive as it is integrated with a compact hyper-cool, triple-copper thermal module which uses heat pipes and three fans to increase CPU and GPU performance. Connectivity options consist of USB 3.1 Type C port, USB 3.0 ports, and a Thunderbolt port. Mounted on board is a webcam and this is complemented with noise-cancelling microphones. Sound quality is rich and audible as it is engineered by Icepower. Networking is supported by both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. It comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Home. The Asus Strix GL702VM-GC020T is clearly a gaming laptop that targets more normal users. While the ROG series takes on the heavyweight champions from Alienware, MSI and Razer, the Strix is made to take on normal consumer-level gaming laptops such as the Dell Inspiron 15. In some way, these machines are better than the hardcore gaming laptops because they can actually be used as a laptop.

80% Asus ROG Strix GL702VM review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
There’s little headroom for VR and future-proofing, it’s ergonomically middling, and it doesn’t have the features or power of pricier rivals. That said, the GTX 1060, solid Full HD screen and decent components elsewhere mean the GL702VM is an excellent and affordable gaming laptop.

This machine is inevitably built with compromise in mind, but the Asus gets it right in key departments. The GTX 1060 is an excellent mid-range GPU, the screen has the ideal resolution and G-Sync alongside decent quality, and the processor is capable.

83.5% Asus Strix GL702VS (7700HQ, FHD, GTX 1070) Xotic PC Edition Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Hot stuff! The Asus GL702VS is one of many options for gamers hunting power in a portable package. Equipped with high-end components in a relatively thin and light chassis, the notebook brings high details in modern titles without breaking backs. Can the device keep its cool, or will it melt under pressure?
ASUS ROG Strix GL702VS review – not a worthy replacement of the ASUS ROG G752VS
Source: Laptop Media English
To sum things up, if you are aiming for portability, want the latest Kaby Lake Core i7-7700HQ on board and probably a better 120Hz screen, the GL702VS is the way to go but if for some reason the four RAM slots are essential to you along with the two M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD slots, a better cooling system is a must and the input devices are also of great importance, you’d better go for the G752VS.

ASUS ROG Strix GL702VM Review
Source: Yugatech English
ASUS continues to perform a nice work on the material and design of its GL702VM. If we had to nitpick, we think the palm rest is a tad big for our liking but overall quality is top notch. Its 17.3-inch display which carries a 4K resolution panel is a joy to play or watch on and its dual speakers can really deliver loud volume.

80% ASUS ROG GL702VM-DS74 17.3″ Gaming Notebook Review
Source: Tech For Pennies English
My original assumption stays true: to get ASUS ROG GL702VM-DS74, one must have deep pockets. But if one has such pockets he will surely get a beast of a laptop. Any game already released or that will be released this or next year will be a smooth sail for this ASUS to run. You might not even need to upgrade it ever (mainly the memory), so solid is the performance right out of the box. The large and sharp screen will make gaming sessions a happy experience. If you can overlook the bad battery there is very little reason to complain about anything. A serious gamer should go for such a serious gaming laptop!

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).


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M:

Second fastest high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (Laptop): 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.» 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.7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.Intel Core i5:
