We're taking our first-ever look at an ASUS Republic of Gamers gaming notebook here on TweakTown. For those who don't know, ASUS' Republic of Gamers (ROG from here on out) badge is given to products that perform exceptionally well, especially so for gamers.

 

Is ASUS' latest addition to the ROG family worth the ROG badge? We put it through its paces here on TweakTown to find out just how well it performs. This no-limits gaming notebook packs a serious punch, but how does the value stack up?

 

Read on and we'll find out together whether or not the ASUS ROG should be on your gaming notebook radar. Note: We've removed the MobileMark performance and battery life benchmark.

 

 

Specifications, Configurations and Pricing

The ASUS ROG we have in the lab, specifically the G750JX-DB71, comes packing the new Intel Haswell-powered i7-4700HQ mobile quad-core processor. This should enable even the most powerful gaming laptops to get a boost in battery life. It features four cores and eight threads and comes clocked at 2.4GHz with TurboBoost 2.0 up to 3.4GHz.

 

Coupled with the 4700HQ is 16GB of DDR3L RAM. 16GB of RAM should be plenty for any gaming application and is good enough for most professional-level applications.

 

Graphics are provided via a discrete NVIDIA GTX 770M with 3GB of vRAM. The GTX 770M is a very capable video card and will perform similarly to the older GTX 670M, as they are both based upon the same chip. It may not be enough to power Crysis at full settings, so we'll have to see just how it performs.

 

Despite being equipped with Windows 8, the ASUS ROG G750JX does not feature a touch-enabled screen. It does, however, come with a full HD 1920x1080 panel with a matte surface coating.

 

The ASUS ROG features a 240GB SSD that is partitioned into two 120GB partitions. Mass storage is provided by a 1TB spinning hard disk, which is also split into two partitions.
