Asus introduces its new [easyazon-link asin=”B007MW73C2″ locale=”us”]G75VW gaming laptop[/easyazon-link], the first one in the world to be capable of handling 5G Wi-Fi connectivity. 5G Wi-Fi connectivity is a new networking standard, also called 802.11ac. It has been getting much attention lately as companies are releasing Systems On a Chip or SOCs and routers that support it. 802.11ac will be able to deliver theoretical maximum Internet speeds as fast as 1.3 Gbps or 800 to 850 Mbps.
Now, Asus is bringing the spotlight to itself as it announces the new laptop which will be available on some indefinite date in the near future. The laptop has dimensions of 0.7 x 16.3 x 12.6 inches and features a 17.3-inch LED-backlit LCD. Its pixel display resolution is 1920 x 1080 which gives excellent HD images.
It runs on an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i7-3720QM processor alongside 16 GB of RAM. NVIDIA’s GTX670M with 3 GB of GDDR5 VRAM is responsible for its graphics, which are crisp even gameplay. The model on display at Computex Taipei either had a 750 GB hard disk drive or a 256 GB solid state disk. There is also an optical drive onboard for this laptop.
The keyboard is chiclet-style and look similar to other Asus laptops at the high end. There is a full-sized keypad, moreover, on this keyboard. The laptop carries an assortment of ports, including a headphones jack, microphone jack, multi-card reader, a VGA port, and an HDMI port. There is a Thunderbolt port, as well, for transmitting the display to other devices such as a monitor. Three USB ports may be found as well as S/PDIF.
The laptop is powered by an eight-cell 74Wh battery. Unfortunately, its battery life is unknown. The device previewed at Computex is gray in its entirety. The logo of Asus and Republic of Gamers are both seen on the laptop’s lid.
The laptop is quite hefty, though, tipping the scale at around 10 pounds. Given this size, users of the G75VW might just keep the laptop at home and use it as a gaming desktop instead.
