Asus ROG 3 New G750 Notebooks Get Upgraded Graphics

Asus Republic of Gamers (ROG) has updated its G-Series of gamer notebooks with three new units, the G750JZ, G750JM and G750JS. All three sport the latest Haswell processor and Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 800M series GPUs. They also feature the company's proprietary TurboMaster GPU-overclocking technology to deliver desktop-like performance.

Looking at the specs, the only difference between the three seems to be the GPU. The G750JZ includes the GeForce GTX 880M with 4 GB of GDDR5 VRAM, whereas the G750JS uses the GeForce GTX 870M with 3 GB of GDDR5 VRAM. The G750JM uses the GeForce GTX 860M with 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM.

As for the full list of specs, all three laptops feature a 17.3-inch anti-glare LED-lit screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. This screen is backed by the Intel Core i7-4700HQ processor, up to 32 GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, and Windows 8.1. Features also include an HD webcam, an array mic, and an assortment of storage options spanning a 2.5-inch SATA 1 TB hard drive to two 256 GB SSDs.

According to Asus, networking is handled by a Killer Wireless-N 1202 component, providing dual-band connectivity for speeds up to 300 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band and speeds up to 300 Mbps on the 5 GHz band. Additional connectivity components include built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi Direct technology for direct (peer-to-peer) connections and Advanced Stream Detect technology.

These three new laptops utilize a new thermal solution that uses intelligent dual independent fans with copper heatsinks. Both the processor and GPU each have their own independent heat-pipe-based cooling that is automatically optimized according to the demands on the system. A unique rear-vented thermal design keeps the distracting fan noise down to a minimum.

On the sound front, the new laptops provide a powerful Hi-Fi quality headphone amplifier with support for high-end 600 ohm headphones, putting gamers right into the action. Asus SonicMaster audio technology and the unique Bass Eye built-in subwoofer provide a full-range 2.1 sound. Precision control of audio settings is provided by the exclusive ROG AudioWizard with its five preset audio profiles.

The ASUS G750JZ, G750JM and G705JS will be available soon, so stay tuned.

    the 880M, just like the 780M and 680MX, is based off a underclocked desktop 680/770 (GK104) with boost. except its only UC'd by 5% and 16% on the core and memory, which practically puts in the territory of a full fledged 680... in a laptop. Still kind of wished for maxwell

    STILL!! It uses the 4700HQ instead of the 4700MQ processor whereas it's competition such as the MSI gt70-2od has a 4700MQ so you can upgrade to an extreme processor when they get cheap years from now. What's the reason? The Asus is heavier than the MSI so having a BGA CPU is not to save weight

    "upgrade to an extreme processor when they get cheap years from now" Nope. The reality is those of us who have one will just buy a new machine in a couple years, the extra room to expand the cooling system is the reason it was done.
