The ASUS G75VW is a gaming laptop computer with a third-generation Core i7 processor, 17.3” 3D screen, two hard disk drives, a GeForce GTX 670M discrete video card, sound system with a subwoofer, and much more. Let’s analyze this powerful machine.
The G75VW is part of the ROG (Republic of Games) family, which means it is a high-end product aimed at the gaming audience.
The box of the ASUS G75VW, shown in Figure 1, is huge and comes in black and red colors.
Although it’s becoming recognised for its lightweight Ultrabooks, Asus has long had a sideline in gaming with its Republic Of Gamers range. The Asus G75VW is an impressive laptop that really goes gung-ho for 3D action.
Audio quality is good too. Its three-speaker system isn’t quite as loud as that of the Toshiba Qosmio, but the third bass speaker does help to produce a fuller, more rounded sound.
The G75VW also supports nVidia’s 3D Vision 2 technology for games. It includes one set of 3D glasses, and can switch into stereoscopic 3D mode at the press of a button, for games that support stereoscopic 3D.
Gaming performance is good too, although not quite up there with the equally expensive Alienware M17x. This particular model is primarily sold through Amazon in the UK, for about £1700, and includes a quad-core Intel Core i7 running at 2.3GHz, 8GB of memory, two separate 1TB hard disks and an nVidia GeForce GTX670M graphics processor.
The issue here is that you’re trading a bit of frame-rate performance for the extra eye-candy for the stereoscopic 3D mode.
The two hard disks provide huge amounts of storage, but they’re each 5400rpm units, and that pulls the overall PCMark 7 score down to a relatively modest 2913.
Battery life is a short 2 hours 20 mins with the GeForce card, although there’s a clickable icon on-screen that allows you to switch to the integrated graphics on the fly to preserve battery life.
Asus G75VW: Design
There are few ways to make a hulking, 4.5kg desktop replacement attractive, but Asus G75VW does a decent job of it by giving the Asus G75VW a wedge-shaped chassis with slick angles and a soft, rubberized plastic black cover. The G75VW looks a lot like its predecessor, the G74SX, but it’s a tad lighter and a bit thinner (it measures 415x320x17~52mm). It still comes with a hefty power brick, however.
The interior is also attractive, with a brushed-metal keyboard deck, a rubberized wrist-rest area, and a silvery Republic of Gamers logo. A few pinprick-size white and green LEDs on the bottom-left corner of the computer indicate battery status, Wi-Fi, eco-mode, and the like. The LEDs are bright, but not distractingly so.
Verdict:The Asus G75VW is a budget-priced gaming laptop, and in this case you kind of get what you pay for. Don’t get me wrong: The G75VW can play most games at an acceptable level, and it’s a fairly attractive machine to boot. Plus, it has a great screen with excellent viewing angles. That said, it’s lacking in general performance, and it’s nothing like some of the higher-end gaming laptops we’ve seen, such as the Origin EON17-S. On the other hand, though the EON17-S has twice the WorldBench 7 score of the G75VW, it also costs more than twice as much. If you’re looking for a somewhat budget-friendly gaming laptop, the G75VW is quite capable. But you will need to use headphones.
