Asus has launched a new gaming laptop, ROG Strix GL553 ,under the Republic Of Gamers (ROG) series which is number one in gaming laptops with 40% of global market share.
The laptop was earlier released in the CES 2017, along with other laptops like Lenovo Legion 720 and 520 as well as new Dell Inspiron 7000 gaming laptop.
Asus ROG Strix is a 15.6 inch laptop with Full HD 1080p , 60 Hz IPS display with wide-view display and matte finish so that there is no glare or reflections and a better visual experience.
Performance – The laptop is powered by the latest 7th generation Intel Kaby Lake processors where the users can choose between either Intel Core i5-7300 HQ or Core i7-7700 HQ processors. The base variant will come with 8 GB of DDR4 2400 Ghz RAM where as the upper models will have a 16 GB variant too.
For those intensive users who need even more RAM than 16 GB ,they can upgrade it upto 32 gigs of RAM. Asus has powered their latest laptop with the latest 10 series graphic card from GTX, which is the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti.
Buyers can choose between 2/4 GB of DDR5 memory GTX 1050 or 4 GB DDR5 memory, GTX 1050i. Both of graphic cards will be good enough to run intensive games at better frame rates.
The laptop comes with 64 bit Windows 10 preloaded, with the base model having 1 TB 7200 RPM HDD and the more expensive variants will come with super fast SATA SSD options of 128/256 GB.
Just like every gaming laptop, Asus ROG Strix is slightly bigger and heavier than all those super thin and light Ultrabooks, weighing 2.5 KG and measuring 383x255x21mm. It has embedded a 48 WHr battery, which will give 3-4 hour battery backup which is average for a gaming laptop.
It has a webcam in the front and Gigabit Ethernet ,Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.0, one USB 3.0 port and one USB3.0 Type-C port, and a USB 2.0 port as well.It also has a HDMI port as well with a 3.5mm jack and a card reader slot.
ROG Strix has a specially designed keyboard with 30 Key rollover keys and full keyboard with 2.5 mm key travel. It also has an intelligent thermal design which let the users adjust the fan speeds to maximize the cooling efficiency of the laptop since the gaming laptop usually heat up very fast.
The laptop has been launched at the price tag of Rs. 94,990 only. We hope Lenovo also launches its Legion series of laptops with Dell Inspiron 7000 series laptops in India. All these laptops have very similar specs and an almost similar price tag as well.
For all those who want to buy a great gaming laptop under 1 lakh rupees, 2017 must be an awesome year for you all with plenty of options.
