Two Weeks Gaming-On-The-Go with the ROG G751

For my entire life, I have gamed at my desk. It is the only place that I can enjoy my enthusiast level hardware, as I'm quite the princess when it comes to gaming. I've always spent ridiculous amounts of time and money on the best hardware, so for the last 15 years, I've never gamed at anything less than 60FPS.

But with the ASUS ROG G751, mobile gaming has become a reality. Sure, it's not the most practical thing to take around, but I actually took the ROG G751 around to my brother's house five times in a period spanning two weeks to see what it would be like packing it up, setting it up, and gaming in a LAN-type environment.

It was great. So much easier to packing up my entire PC, screen and keyboard. This way, I'm just throwing the laptop into a bag, along with the power adapter and my Corsair gaming mouse. It takes me less than 1-2 minutes to be out of the door, versus 10-15 minutes of unplugging everything and putting it into the car.

One of the key reasons I used this machine as my desktop replacement and mobile gaming machine as the inclusion of NVIDIA's G-Sync technology. Ever since the ASUS ROG Swift monitor (review), I haven't gamed on anything less than a G-Sync powered monitor. Thanks to ASUS powering the 17.3-inch FHD panel with G-Sync technology, you're getting a liquid smooth gaming experience, anywhere.

Not only does it feature G-Sync, but we have a 75Hz refresh rate, which is just great. Even in Windows, the ASUS ROG G751 feels ultra-smooth to use, which is thanks to the 75Hz refresh rate. As soon as you're in games, the 75Hz refresh rate with the magic that is NVIDIA G-Sync turns this machine into something that wasn't available before it - gaming on the go, with G-Sync.

Performance at 1080p

The full-fledged GeForce GTX 980 (and overclocked) trounces the GTX 980M, but it's not like the GTX 980M inside of the ASUS ROG G751 is useless. It's not like it used to be years ago when the mobile GPUs were next to useless when compared to their desktop counterparts.

Tweaking some of the in-game settings resulted in 75FPS average (or so) at 1080p, which is what you want to hit. With the G-Sync panel at 75Hz, if you're getting 60FPS or higher, you're golden. Achieving around 60FPS will 'feel like' 75FPS thanks to G-Sync, and achieving 75FPS minimum is just sublime.

You'll have no worries playing any game out on the market right now, with some changes to in-game settings, at 60FPS+ on the ASUS ROG G751 at 1080p.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
