Reviews for the Asus X59GL

Asus X59GL
Source: Inside HW English
Trump card of ASUS X59GL is, definitely, its price (around 445€) and two year guarantee period. Its performances are sufficient for business and less demanding home users (SOHO). At the same time you shouldn’t underestimate ASUS X59GL, because it has DualCore CPU which makes it significantly faster than almost all Celeron variants. Users that search for easily portable notebook for internet, movies, music and Office applications can absolutely rely on ASUS X59GL.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G: The 8200 MG is a reduced 9100M G (only Single Channel memory and only PureVideo HD VP2). Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
T5800: Entry level dual core processor based on the Merom core without Virtualization support and a low maximum temperature.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
