Reviews for the Asus ROG G703GX

84.3% 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.

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.
