Asus G752 Gaming Laptop Now Available – See Features, Specs, Price and ReviewsPublished on October 21st, 2015 | by Peter Paul
The Asus G752 gaming laptop is one of the company’s latest and one of the most powerful gaming laptop (aside from the GX700), powered with the latest 6th gen. Intel Skylake Quad core processor and up to GeForce GTX 980M for its discrete graphics processor. The new Asus G752 also features a new design and look (Copper Silver theme) which is very pleasing to the eyes; I’d say better than Alienware or any gaming laptop out there. It also features a nice 17.3″ IPS FHD display with NVIDIA G-Sync support making sure that you won’t experience any of those screen tearing or stuttering, giving you a smooth and enjoyable gaming experience. It also features a new thermal cooling system, fast and large storage capacity, and an array of input and output options. Check out the rest of its features, specs, price and availability below. Asus G752 review or preview videos are also available at the bottom.
Asus G752 Gaming Laptop Features
The Asus G752 is a powerful gaming laptop powered by a 6th-generation Intel Core i7 Skylake quad core processor and up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M discrete graphics. ROG G752 has an aggressive design and sports the new ROG Armor Titanium and Plasma Copper color scheme. It features the ROG-exclusive mobile 3D Vapor Chamber thermal system for more efficient cooling and increased stability, along with a backlit anti-ghosting gaming keyboard with 30-key rollover for precise input. ROG G752 can be upgraded to up to 64GB DDR4 RAM for faster, more energy-efficient performance.
The Asus G752 gaming laptop has Windows 10 pre-installed and is powered by the latest 6th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, paired with discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M graphics for superior gaming performance and sharp, detailed visuals. ROG G752 features support for the latest DDR4 memory, which is 30% more efficient and 20% faster than the previous-generation DDR3. The four DDR4 slots allow RAM to be upgraded to a maximum of 64GB.
The future of ROG design
The Asus G752 has hexagonal design elements and angled edges that mirror that of past ROG gaming laptops, while at the same time representing the latest evolution of ROG design. Its new Armor Titanium and Plasma Copper color scheme has been specially chosen to enhance its modern, angular lines.
Keeping things cool
Temperature uniformity vapor chambers are commonly found alongside high-performance, high-voltage graphics cards to increase cooling efficiency. The ROG-exclusive mobile 3D Vapor Chamber, together with the copper heat pipe, create an effective and efficient cooling system that helps improve GPU performance for smooth and stable gaming. ROG G752 is the world’s first laptop to integrate a vapor chamber into its cooling system.
The Asus G752 gaming laptop has a unique thermal design that directs dust into a dust-release tunnel to keep it away from internal components. This prolongs component lifespan and enhances overall stability of the laptop. In addition, dedicated cooling modules for the CPU and GPU help cool each component. Hot exhaust is managed efficiently and expelled through the rear vents to direct heat away from the user for more-comfortable gaming sessions.
A keyboard built for gaming
The Asus G752 has an ergonomically-designed keyboard with a key-travel distance of 2.5mm for solid, responsive keystrokes. The anti-ghosting with 30-key rollover feature ensures all inputs are instantaneously and correctly interpreted even if numerous keys are hit simultaneously. There are is a dedicated Record key and several ROG macro keys to program complex multi-key commands.
Price and Where to Buy
The Asus G752 gaming laptop is now available and comes with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price starting at $1,499 up to $3,499 depending on the model or configuration. Just a few tips, I would suggest you get the model with an SSD as it will make your overall system performance fast and responsive. Also, if you want the best gaming experience, better get the model powered with a GeForce GTX 980M discrete graphics card (ASUS G752VY-DH72 or ASUS G752VY-DH78K). Don’t expect super smooth gaming experience and system performance with the lowest model (ASUS G752VL-DH71), as it is only powered with a GTX 965M and it doesn’t have an SSD installed.
