Asus Optimises Networks for Laptop Gaming

Asus’ Republic of Gamers’ G751 laptop is a powerful model for gaming-on-the-go. Users can hit dedicated keys to access Steam and one-click gameplay recording, as well as the Asus Sonicmaster and Audiowizard features.

Copper heatsinks and dual fans keep the G751 cool – necessary when the Nvidia GeForce GTX970M/980M graphics cards are being used for overclocking. Asus’ Turbomaster technology provides ‘desktop levels of performance’, the company claims. An Intel Core (up to i7) CPU drives the unit.

Up to three external displays can be supported by the G751, which features mini-DisplayPort, HDMI and VGA outputs. An external UltraHD display can be connected, as well. The laptop’s own 17.3″ screen has 1920 x 1080 resolution and an IPS panel (178 deg viewing angles), with an anti-glare covering.

When gaming online, Asus’ Gamefirst III technology optimises networks for lag-free play. Game packets are prioritised, with more bandwidth allocated. Four packet-priority modes are preset, as well as a manual control option.

The G751 is available now for £1,585 ($2,500) ex VAT.
