Kaby Lake quad-core fulfills GeForce GTX 1050. The embodiment of a midrange gaming laptop computer is one whose rate listed below exactly what we see in the area of high-end systems, however still thrills on muscle and power. The ASUS ROG Strix GL753VD-DS71 tosses the dice in the ideal instructions, for that matter, by calling a cost that is far much less than the competitors while providing comparable– and, in many cases, much better– performance.

Including a Kaby Lake Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, and Pascal-based Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics, makes this system a worth proposal in every angle.

The 1080p resolution isn’t really bad, though we have actually seen competitors like the HP Prophecy 17 4K display screen, however it’s acceptable for the classification. If you have actually constantly preferred to own the Asus ROG Strix GL702VM-DB74, our leading choice best gaming laptop under 1500, however rate has actually been a challenge, then you ought to seriously think about the ROG GL753VD-DS71 as it provides strong performance at a reasonably budget-friendly cost.


Along with the brand new 4GB Nvidia GTX 1050 graphics card, the Asus GL753VD-DS71 is geared up with a likewise brand-new Intel Core i7-7700HQ chip, a quad-core CPU based upon the most recent Kaby Lake generation. Other specifications consist of 16GB memory supplied by 2 8GB modules, however can take an optimum of 32GB. For storage, you have a 7200RPM 1TB hard disk drive (in our evaluation system), although we get that Asus will use various memory and storage setups gradually for the various variations of the exact same base design. The Core i7-7700HQ (Kaby Lake) is the follower to the i7-6700HQ (Skylake), a mobile quad-core CPU that presently runs in lots of video gaming and multimedia note pads. On CPU standards, it yields much better ratings that its predecessor, though not excessively much faster, hence not needed to update, thinking about that video gaming note pads are still restricted by the video gaming performance.

Provided the brand-new graphics system, however, it’s the 3D and video gaming test results that are of a lot of interest. The brand-new notebook cards are implied to be really much like their desktop equivalents for the very first time, and this can be reviewed GPU ratings. The 3DMark standards direct to a benefit of about 30% for the GTX 1050 over the GTX 960M which has the exact same rating with the GTX 965M, which bridged the gap in between multimedia and video gaming. The next faster designs the GTX 1070 are GTX 1080 present an excellent experience of NVidia’s high-end chips that are bringing desktop performance to mobile phones.

The GeForce GTX 1060, which is the “entry-level GPU” for full-fledged video gaming note pads, is nearly two times as quick as the GTX 1050. Still, the GTX 1050 carries some strong frame rates per second (FPS) on many modern-day titles in HIGH settings consisting of: The Witcher-29.1 FPS, Fallout 4-41.2 FPS, Battleground 1-46.5 FPS; and, FIFA 17-144FPS.

As anticipated for a big gaming laptop, the ROG Strix GL753’s battery life is nothing to write home about. The much we got in our screening from the 4-cell battery 4 hours 21 minutes– although Asus declares as much as 5 hours; simply drop the buzz, it’s a gaming laptop. The requiring hardware in video gaming laptop computers usually drains pipes the battery rapidly, however you should not anticipate the complete video gaming performance if the system on battery power given that it can just utilize a portion of its capacity without a socket.

Features and Design

The GL753VD-DS71 is– a minimum of by video gaming requirements– large and not big like predecessors. At 1.2 by 16.3 by 10.7 inches (HWD) and 6.6 pounds, it will not take the least of desk area and is rather travel friendly as it can move into a Bonvince 18.4 ″ Laptop computer Knapsack, though it isn’t really heavy as you may anticipate. Both the aluminum cover and plastic cover on the base still have the metal surface, which might be fast to select finger prints and difficult to tidy. Definitely, it has the appearances of best gaming laptop thanks to a black ROG metal profile that has red accents, consisting of the Republic of Gamers logo design on its cover along with the palm rest.

As you turn it on, the keyboard is lit up, with the exact same color style as the ROG logo design on the lid. The very same color is seen in the cooling fins inside the chassis in addition to on the rubber feet at the bottom. We’re taking a look at a comparable style acquired from its predecessors like the ASUS ROG GL752VW-DH71, however, the GL753 features some complimentary aspects at the top of the base system. They offer the system a 3D impact, although the base style itself is entirely flat.

For the base system, Asus utilized plastic elements, while the cover keeps the very same aluminum plate from previous designs that has actually been pushed into a players’ shape. I fasted to keep in mind that the notebook is rather steady for a 17-incher, which I otherwise believed would be a bit shaky, however I didn’t get any creaking noises. You do not have any open holes in this system which shows best craftsmanship, except for some random spaces in locations surrounding the optical drive.


Connection is outstanding and differed. Left wing, you have power adapter at the back, and a LAN port, HDMI, mDP, 2x USB 3.0 Type-An along with one Type-C jack to the front. The latter, nevertheless, does not support other requirements. The headset port lies extremely far to the front. The SD-card reader sits at the front, however it is tough to see due to the wedge-shaped style. Web connection comes by means of 802.11 a/c 2 × 2 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

On the ideal side are 2 extra USB ports, however only one of them supports the 3.0 requirement, which is just shown by a small sign. You need to for that reason look out when you connect an external hard disk drive, or the transfer rates will be low. Lastly, there is an optical drive and a Kensington lock slot at the best side. We ‘d have wanted to see adequate labelling of the USB 2.0 ports, however that’s not a huge issue in the meantime, however area of the ports at the extremely far of the front is. If you’re a left-hand user, this might be an obstacle as you will have many cable televisions in one location, and peripherals with brief cable televisions might be difficult to utilize.

The laptop computer includes 3 USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.1 Type C (gen 2)– does not support Thunderbolt 3, an HDMI port, a miniDisplayPort– for linking to external screens, an Ethernet jack, and mic-in, line-out, and headphone-out jacks, along with an SD card reader. The system likewise includes Bluetooth 4.1 and dual-band 802.11 a/c Wi-Fi for cordless connection, along with an HD Web video camera.

The keyboard design is nearly much like the Asus GL702. As anticipated, it’s a chiclet-style keyboard that includes a numerical keypad on the ideal side, though the directional keys are bigger and rather apart, which is the same case on the left side of the area bar where the thumb sometimes touches when utilizing the WASD thumb. The anti-ghosting keys have well-thought travel, (not too brief) for a gaming laptop, and the feedback from pressure point is satisfying. The touchpad was most likely raised from the GL702 as it stays practically the very same, with adequate surface area and reaction from the two clicking locations.

The 17.3-inch FHD resolution panel provides large seeing angles of as much as 160-degrees, however it still keeps the colors lively, and the images are sharp. The panel is extremely brilliant at as much as 349 nits in the center, and the typical luminance of the Asus GL753 is very little lower at 337 nits.The dive to 3K and 4K resolution in the video gaming classification is booked for other systems like the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K and the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 4K-238.

In fact, such high resolutions have actually stayed a compromise for video gaming systems, because these screens are far more requiring, and the performance is even more held down by mobile graphics cards, so you’ll need to pick in between resolution, size or performance, however the most crucial is to pick the very best mix. Nvidia’s G-Sync innovation isn’t really supported here.
