Asus ROG G752 Battery Life And Acoustics

In the following benchmarks we employ two very different battery life tests--Battery Eater Pro and a custom 1080p HD video loop test--to prove out battery life with our test group of machines. In all tests, Windows 10 Quiet Hours have been enabled and displays are calibrated with lux meters on pure white screens to as close to 115 lux as possible. For the average notebook this is somewhere between a 45 - 60% brightness setting.

Since notebook displays significantly affect power consumption and battery life, it's important to ensure a level playing field with respect to brightness of the display for battery testing. However, since many notebook displays vary in brightness at each respective brightness setting in Windows, this calibration with the meter is also critical to ensure all displays are set to as near identical brightness as possible before testing.

Heavy-Duty Workload And Light-Duty Battery Life Performance

Battery Eater Pro provides a heavy load on the laptop and generally runs through its battery life much faster than our custom video loop test. Our video benchmark helps you get a sense of how long the laptop will handle ordinary tasks while on battery power; Battery Eater Pro presents a worst-case scenario.

We’ve finally found a chink in the ROG G752’s armor. The laptop burned through its battery fairly quickly in BEP and didn't impress in our video loop test, either. Don’t plan on long gaming sessions away from a power outlet. With internal as powerful as the ROG G752's, its going to consume batter power relatively quickly, which is par for the course with a high-end gaming notebook.

Acoustics: As for noise, the ROG G752 got a little noisy when we played games. The fan noise didn’t distract us, but if you’re looking for a silent laptop, this isn’t the one for you. Even so, the fan noise will likely be a non-issue for most gamers.
