Asus ROG G752 Gaming: Bioshock, Mordor And Tomb Raider

Now that we’ve wrapped up the standard benchmark suites, we’ll take a look at how the system handled itself in game tests.
 
We thoroughly enjoyed gaming with the ROG G752, which is to be expected. That said, we noticed that the audio didn’t sound very full to us during games in which we didn’t use our headset. We like the size of the display, which makes it easy to tune out the world beyond the edge of the screen. Overall, the playing experience is practically luxurious.

Based on Epic’s Unreal Engine 3, BioShock Infinite takes you (as former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt) to the mysterious, flying city of Columbia. You find yourself helping Elizabeth, who soon turns out to have unusual powers. The game offers a first person shooter (FPS) style view but the storyline is as compelling as the battles and Bioshock Infinite has won awards and praise for its story and art design.

The ROG G752 blew past all of the systems in our comparison pool, producing an average framerate of nearly 145fps. Its minimum fps was just shy of 60. Its nearest competitor is the MSI GE62 Apache Pro, which features a GTX 1060.

Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor Performance
Glorious Orc-Slaying Vengeance

Monolith’s surprisingly fun Orc-slaying title Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, delivers a ton of visual fidelity even at the lowest quality settings. So, to maximize the eye-candy on this high-end laptop, we ran the game’s High quality benchmark routine at a couple of resolutions, topping out at the native resolution of the ROG G752’s panel.

All of the game's graphics-related options were enabled, along with FXAA and Camera Blur...

It’s not too likely that you’ll play games at a lower resolution than the ROG G752’s native 1920x1080, but we ran the benchmarks to get a broad look at how the system fares against other systems we’ve recently tested. Clearly, the ROG G752 can handle this game with ease, even at high settings.

DirectX 12 Performance

Tomb Raider screen4

Rise of the Tomb Raider has hit the PC lining it up in our gun sights for graphics, gameplay and performance analysis. The game launched on the Xbox family of consoles a few months back and has since been ported to PC thanks to NIXXES Software. It’s a competent console to PC port updated with many graphics settings and effects to tweak and dial to your particular tastes and system capabilities. Some of the rendering and effects features include, Ambient Occlusion, Depth of Field, Dynamic Foliage, Bloom shader effects, Tessellation and several more. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let's give you some backdrop on the Tomb Raider series.

We also ran the game's benchmark running in its DX12 code path mode.

The ROG G752 took the clear lead in Rise of the Tomb Raider, as well, with a 125.1 average framerate. The GE62 Apache Pro, armed with a GTX 1060, landed well behind with 81.05 fps, but even that score is significantly higher than any we’ve seen from previous systems.
