Asus has gone 3D with its RoG laptops – the notebook maker recently released its new Nvidia-based Republic of Gamers G53 laptop. According to the manufacturer, top-of-the-line specifications and a cool 3D display make the RoG G53 one of the hottest laptops around for the gaming crowd.
Sporting an Intel Core i7-740QM processor clocked at 1.73GHz with a 6MB combined cache, the G53 laptop is not short on power. Club that with the whopping 8GB of DDR3 RAM and Intel’s Turbo boost technology, and you have a got a mean machine on your hand that can be boosted to run at 2.93GHz with ease. A 640GB HDD, a Blu-ray drive that reads and writes Blu-ray discs, DVDs, and CDs means you will never be short of storage options.
While the specs are fascinating, the most interesting aspect of the laptop is its display. Though its resolution is only 1366 x 768, the 120Hz refresh rate and integrated receiver for Nvidia 3D Vision shutter glasses make it a treat for the eyes. It goes without saying that the 3D Vision glasses are bundled with the laptop.
Then there is the HDMI 1.4a video output for those who prefer their gaming on the big screen. The power behind this display is provided by an Nvidia GTX 460 graphics card with a massive 1.5GB of GDD5 memory. This means the GPU has enough juice to run even the most demanding of modern games with the 3D Vision going.
Rounding up the specifications are integrated 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, wired gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth, three USB 2.0 ports and a single USB 3.0 port. With its 3.6Kg curb weight and dimensions of 39.1cm x 29.7cm x 2-5cm, this monster laptop is not a piece you want to lug around with you, but it definitely has all the makings of a great gaming system.
Slated to hit the market within the coming fortnight, the Asus RoG G53 3D laptop is expected to sport a price tag of £1,599. The only information missing for gamers at the moment is information about the battery life.
