The ROG G751 will come with an unlocked GPU and free upgrade to Windows 10.

The venerable ROG series is following on the footsteps of Aorus and MSI by including Nvidia G-SYNC on the successful high-end G751. Our review on the G751 praised its performance and quality enough to earn it top marks on our Top 10 list of gaming notebooks.

While our 17.3-inch G751 test model included an i7-4710HQ, the updated configuration on show houses an i7-4870HQ and includes a free upgrade to Windows 10 when available. Asus is also marketing the GTX 980M as overclockable, which is rare for a notebook and has us wondering just how far we can push the G751 as its cooling solution is already quite good compared to the competition. The G-SYNC display appears to be an IPS panel as well based on our observations. Otherwise, other core specifications and interfaces are unchanged.

Meanwhile, the 15.6-inch GL552 is another small step above the GL551 with new surface designs on an otherwise identical chassis. This less expensive model gets an update to the GTX 950M from the original GTX 850M on the GL551 with either a TN 1366 x 768 or IPS 1920 x 1080 display. Asus seems to be including G-SYNC for the G751 only for now, though users will still get free upgrades to Windows 10 on both models.

No word yet on pricing and launch, but we expect availability to be in the next few weeks.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
