Asus G752 (G752VL, G752VT, G752VY) 17.3″ Gaming Laptop


Asus G752 (G752VL, G752VT, G752VY) Gaming Laptop

The Asus G752 with its G752VL, G752VT, G752VY sub-series is a traditional gaming notebook with a big 17.3-inch display, powerful video cards and processors, and bold gaming-centric design.

The G752 brings several important improvements over its G751 precursor. The new version uses the 6th Generation Intel Core “Skylake” processors instead of the 4th Gen “Haswell”. The performance bump isn’t significant, but the Skylake brings a generally better performance-per-Watt ratio and improved multimedia capabilities. Available CPU parts are the Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad-core and overclockable i7-6820HK quad-core. The new laptop version adds support for DDR4 2,133MHz system memory instead of only DDR3 and you can now have up to 64GB of RAM instead of “just” 32GB. Asus has made improvements in the storage department by including a 2 Terabyte hard drive option besides a 1TB HDD and M.2 solid state drives of up to 512GB. Also, Asus has added an optional Ultra HD 4K 3840×2160 IPS display option, besides the standard Full HD 1920×1080 IPS. Another innovation is Nvidia G-Sync technology, which is a standard on all G752 models instead of being just an optional feature. Furthermore, the PC maker has included Thunderbolt 3.0 technology for blazing fast up to 40 Gbps data connection to compatible external devices, while being compatible with USB-C, DisplayPort, and PCI Express standards. Finally, the cooling solution is now dust-resistant, keeping internal components cleaner.

On the software side, pre-loaded OS is Windows 10 instead of old 8.1. The news is that the G752 will be available with Windows Pro version besides standard Home.
