After the disappointing and a bit incomprehensible launch of the GL553VW laptop, the company has now announced the launch of Asus ROG Strix GL702VM,a launch that makes way more sense and abandons the obsolete GeForce GTX 960M for a GeForce GTX 1060 equipped with 6GB of GDDR5 memory resulting in a remarkable difference in performance, all of this at a price that can be considered appropriate, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
The Asus ROG Strix GL702VM has a 17.3 inches screen that we can find in a 1920 x 1080 pixels Full HD resolution with NTSC color coverage of 72 percent working at a refresh rate of 60 Hz under the support of Nvidia G-Sync technology to avoid stuttering and flickering as well as offer more fluid images. For that it has the support of either an Intel Core i5-6300HQ @ 3.20 GHz processor or an Intel Core i7-6700HQ @ 3.50 GHz supported by the Intel HM170 chipset that lets you install up to 32 GB DDR4 memory @ 2133 MHz which joins the already mentioned GeForce GTX 1060 and a basic HDD storage of 1TB @ 7200 RPM to which we can add a SSD SATA III of up to 512GB and a SSD M.2 of up to 256GB.
All of this leaves us with a Laptop of 2.7 kilograms and 24mm thickness cooled by three fans (1x 14mm + 1x 7mm + 1x 4mm), it hides a battery of 76 Whrs, WiFi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity, a webcam, a card reader, backlit keyboard, three video outputs in the form of HDMI, Mini DisplayPort and Thunderbolt, also a USB 3.1 Type-C, three USB 3.0 and an audio jack. Its price will be $1,399 for the model with a Core i7, 16GB of RAM and the 1TB HDD running at 7,200 RPM.
