Preview: ASUS G751 Gaming Notebook Powered By NVIDIA's Maxwell Mobile GeForce GTX 980M Rips Through Benchmarks

NVIDIA recently launched mobile variants of their latest Maxwell GPU architecture and we gave you a quick tease to show you what they were all about. Maxwell on the desktop is potent enough. However, the performance and efficiency of NVIDIA's latest GPU architecture would surely play out well in desktop replacement notebooks that cater to gamers and enthusiast who want graphics muscle and aren't afraid of a little extra heft.

ASUS quickly saw the benefits of NVIDIA's Maxwell mobile GPU as well and obviously had an early lead in engineering a new gaming notebook that employs NVIDIA's fastest mobile GPU currently, known as the GeForce GTX 980M.  In a revamp of their G750 series of ROG gaming notebooks, ASUS has jumped out of the gate first with Maxwell and their new G751 follow-on -- a 17-inch, big, bad and yes, beautiful flat black and red dragster of a DTR notebook.
