Reviews for the Asus ROG G703GX

84.9% Asus ROG G703GX (i7-8750H, RTX 2080) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Thanks to a hexa-core processor and GeForce RTX 2080 GPU, the G703GX brings all the current games smoothly to the matte 144-Hz IPS screen. We also like the rest of the equipment: an NVMe SSD, SSHD, 32 GB of RAM, and Thunderbolt 3. If needed, you could still upgrade the working memory and storage media.

Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Asus ROG G703GX delivers impressive performance, and it has rock-solid build quality alongside a good screen. It’s bulkier than rivals, though, and some components offer minimal performance gains. Battery life is poor, thermal performance is disappointing, and it’s hugely expensive. It’s tricky to recommend – unless you do need all of its showstopping components inside a single laptop.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 (Laptop): High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,944 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » 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.  
8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
17.3":

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.

4.65 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).


42.45%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
