Asus ROG G752 Review: A Pascal Packing Mobile Powerhouse

Final Thoughts On The Asus ROG G752

Performance Summary: The Asus ROG G752’s performance in our benchmarks was downright stellar courtesy of its quad-core Skylake processor, NVMe SSD, and the Pascal-based NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070. The laptop blazed through every benchmark, earning top scores in nearly all of them. It obviously has the chops to handle today’s games (at high quality settings) and it’s going to be an enviable gaming laptop for some time to come.

There is more to the experience than the benchmarks tell, of course. The display, keyboard, and other design features have a huge impact on the experience. But here, too, the laptop is well-equipped. The ROG G752 is a gaming laptop to its core, with built-in game recording, 30-key rollover, and customizable buttons, but it is also a powerful desktop replacement with the horsepower and features to satisfy a broad range of users.

We think that the ROG G752’s unusual design and giant ROG logo will perhaps send some people looking for a tamer laptop. The exhaust grille gives the laptop a jet-like feel that some will dig more than others. But it’s a gaming laptop, after all, and we like that Asus is willing to give the system some real personality.

The $2,999 price puts the ROG G752 out of many budgets right away, but we don’t see it being a problem for gamers who are willing to invest in a machine of this caliber. If you want to game at a lower price point, a system like the MSI GE62VR 6RF Apache Pro ($1,599) is worth a look and Asus has other models with similar aesthetics available as well. If you want a GTX 1070 in a 17-inch laptop, that also happens to pack in some serious processing power and a speedy SSD, the Asus ROG G752 should be on your list.
