Reviews for the Asus ROG Strix GL702VT-GC023T
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.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M:
Second fastest high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
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.
