Review: Asus ROG G752 OC Edition - Faster than many desktop gaming PCs
Portable, top-end PC gaming thanks to the 1070
- Top gaming performance for any computer
- Not cheap
- Overclocking performance issues
The G752VS is certainly impressive. It offers almost double the a level of gaming performance over previously available single-GPU notebooks, which is insane. It’s not a one-trick pony, either — both its quad-core CPU, DDR4 memory, and PCIe SSD are top-shelf all the way.
The G752VS is certainly impressive. It offers almost double the a level of gaming performance over previously available single-GPU notebooks, which is insane. It’s not a one-trick pony, either—both its quad-core CPU, DDR4 memory, and PCIe SSD are top-shelf all the way. This notebook is a desktop replacement, with the same amount of performance. And it’s priced quite fairly, even though $3,400 might seem exorbitant to people not used to gaming laptops. All of the fully loaded GTX 1070 notebooks we found online are a similar price, and almost all of them had the exact same specs.
The only real fly in the ointment is its overclocking performance—its throttling under extended load is a bit disappointing. The Acer Predator 17X, for example, had no such issues. It would be nice if the keyboard had RGB backlighting capabilities and better audio, too. And the G752VS only comes with a paltry one-year warranty, whereas similar notebooks from Acer and MSI offer warranties that are twice as long.
For most users, these are small issues, but they’re worth noting. Still, it's hard to argue with the incredible graphics performance of the GTX 1070. Even with the disappointing overclocking performance, it's second to none.
