ASUS ROG G751JY Laptop Review: G-Sync Gaming On The Go

Performance: Hitman: Absolution and Metro: Last Light

As 47, a killer for the International Contract Agency (ICA), you have a very dangerous, but action-packed life. The Hitman franchise has been winning praise from critics throughout multiple games, of which Hitman: Absolution is the latest. When running this game’s benchmark, we set AA to 4X and pump the Quality Level settings to Ultra, making for a grueling gaming test.

ASUS G751JY-DB72 Hitman: Absolution

Once again, the G751JY laptops skipped ahead of the competition, and also once again, it was last year's model that edged out the G-Sync variant by a few frames per second. Given the consistency of this happening, we can probably rule out margin of error as an explanation. It's more likely a driver issue, different base / boost clocks, or other software differences on the systems.

ASUS G751JY-DB72 Metro: Last Light

Metro: Last Light is a fairly punishing benchmark, though certainly playable on the G751JY with all the settings cranked up. The system managed a smooth 42 FPS on average, with a minimum frame rate just shy of 24 FPS.

These were among the best of the bunch, with only the Alienware and its AMP accessory posting a slightly faster average (but a slower minimum).
