ASUS has really big with gamers, thanks to its exceptional Republic of Gamers line of laptops. Now, the tech giant has something new to offer gaming enthusiasts AND content consumers with the newest ROG entry, the G703GXR.
ASUS’ engineers appear to have outdone themselves with this latest ROG offering, and it’s worth taking a look at. Read on and find out what this laptop has in store for you, from the external casing down to the details of its performance capabilities.
One look at the G703GXR, Notebook Check states, and you can find that the designers have taken a slightly different turn from what they have done with this beast’s predecessors. The case is bulkier than the slimmer profile of ASUS gaming models.
However, behind that, bulk is an assembly of components designed to pack the G703GXR with the performance that it promises. The motherboard carries a 9th-generation Core i9 9750H processor, supported by 32 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM).
The Intel HM370 motherboard also contains RAM expansion slots so that you can take the memory capacity all the way up to 64 gigabytes.
The G703GXR carries an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics processing unit, as well.
The latest ROG laptop from ASUS looks more like the gaming laptops from earlier eras, from the insane amount of bezels in the design, the black and silver accents, and the humongous 17.3-inch display. The 17.3-inch monitor has a native resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 127 pixels per inch (PPI).
ASUS has taken no compromises with performance and has equipped the G703GXR with a one terabyte solid state drive (SSD) to complement the already powerful CPU and GPU. SSDs are known for their exceptional speed.
A review by Beebom revealed excellent performance in graphics-hungry games. The reviewer put the G703GXR to the test with Far Cry 5 and got a maximum frame rate of 148 frames per second at the highest graphics setting.
This means that, even in the highest gaming resolutions, the G703GXR still managed to output smooth visuals on a third-person shooter game. Gaming geeks will find that more than satisfying – the frame rates are absolutely in sync with the fast-paced nature of shooters.
All in all, the G703GXR offers an excellent performance package that should please the most meticulous consumers of visual content and gamers. The trade-off, however, is that it comes with a bulky and less portable casing that could leave you wanting a slimmer one.
