Asus ROG G751JY (DH71) Gaming Laptop GTX 980M Review
What is up guys? Fated here and welcome back to my channel for another video. Today have the awesome and powerful Asus G751 republic of gamers extreme gaming laptop. Packed with some of the latest and greatest technology including a Maxwell GPU, the G751 steps up to the plate to lay waste to its competitors but is it everything that it is cracked up to be? The model that I chose to go with with was the G751JY. The exact model number will be down in description. This model comes with an Intel i7 4710HQ, 24 gigabytes of RAM, a one terabyte HDD, along with 2 128 gigabyte SSD’s in a RAID configuration, a 1920 by 1080 IPS panel and most of all the extremely powerful GTX 980M. So let’s start with the design. This laptop is definitely some eye candy to look at. Modeled after the F-22 Raptor, it puts off an intimidating image. Letting those around you know that you are serious about your hardware.
The vents on the rear make for a mouth-watering visual that no laptop I have ever seen has even come close to. Though it is ginormous, coming in at inches for a whopping pounds of pure performance. The sides consist of your standard laptop connections like USB ports and the like. But nicely thrown in is an HDMI out so you can plug it up to full performance gaming monitor. Also packed inside is a Blu ray player, which I’m sure you movie lovers will greatly appreciate.
They also have speakers of course, which creates a pretty good sound but not something to be jumping off your feet about. It is a bit lacking in presence if you get what I mean but maybe to help with that they did throw in a sub-woofer. But that in itself is largely unimpressive and it does make the sound feel a little bit one-sided. Before I do forget to mention the bottom is awesome and it is perfectly comfortable for long laptime gaming. Now in the middle of all this design is the flashy red backlit keyboard with some macro keys including a steam button and record button. Which definitely helps to capture those epic moments in game. I for one am in love with the keyboard it feels and it types like a keyboard that you would pay many many dollars for.
The back-light could have been a bit brighter or at least a bit more distinction between the three brightness settings. Now the touchpad is great once you do realize that gestures are just completely useless and you do disable them. Then you find a really good and responsive touch pad. One of the best I’ve ever seen, some money was definitely put into this one. Now for the display which is an IPS 1920 by 1080 panel with fantastic color accuracy. Finally a gaming PC with great color reproduction. Something that I myself have been really clamoring for. The colors really pop even under that matte screen finish. Also 75 hertz is a nice yet modest boost from 60 Hertz. Definitely no complaints here though. Everyone will love anything and everything that is displayed on this monitor.
Now for performance the 4710HQ has been out for a while now and I have covered it before and it is definitely overkill for a gaming PC. But it does give you that freedom to render and edit videos or even live stream your gameplay if you do feel like it. 24 gigabytes of RAM, I mean my gosh when will you ever use that in-game. Most games barely use 8. But it will sure help in editing, it surely help me. I render all my gameplay benchmarks videos in under one minute. Check the link in the description if you would like to see those. Now the SSD’s have some really good speed. You can see here on screen what speed I was actually getting. Though I wish there were a bit more space. I filled up mine with simple benchmarks. Anyways, I know what you are all probably here for and that is for how does this thing game.
Let me tell you, I am jaw dropped by the GTX 980M’s performance. I mean seriously, desktop-like performance and you can put it in your backpack. This thing takes on Lara Crofts extremely performance crushing TressFX hair and laughs about it at fully maxed out settings. I mean I for one am really impressed. I ran it through the usual benchmarks but I don’t think that they really do it justice so I uploaded some gameplay videos so do check them out if you do want dive deeper into it. But it will handle all the latest games on at least high settings and you can be sure of that. So all in all it’s time for my verdict on this beast, I mean it is most certainly everything it is cracked up to be. But your wallet is going to be empty for awhile with a price tag of two thousand three hundred dollars at the time of writing. And some other 751 models have even been close to three thousand dollars. It is definitely a chunk of money to drop on a computer but I do think that this specific model is worth it. You can even go with a cheaper model because the selling point here is the GTX 980M.
If an IPS panel is not something that is important to you then there are many other options that may better fit your budget. But in the end I think this is a fantastic gaming PC. Many people will enjoy countless hours with this machine and won’t regret that purchase. So anyways those are my thoughts, tell me if you agree in the comments below if you think I’m an idiot do write that too.
