Can this Laptop replace your Gaming Desktop?
Can this laptop replace your gaming desktop this is the asus rog GL 702 ZM a gaming laptop with a desktop grade gtx 1060 in it it also has a quad-core i7 6700 HQ paired with 8 gigs of ram that is upgradable up to 32 gigs attached to this thin an insanely powerful machine is a 1080p IPS g-sync enabled screen a keyboard and a trackpad it's basically a desktop in a laptop form even its port selection is quite desktop like now obviously it's not got the quantity of a desktop but it's got the selection hdmi displayport you see type-c SD card reader and three normal-sized USB ports now i'm sure that
You guys are very interested in seeing the performance of the gtx 1060 graphics card so let's get into the benchmarks before we get into everything else like screen keyboard and all that so as you can see on the benchmarks here the gtx 1060 in this laptop is very powerful now I have noticed frame drops however a little bit now and then which is why I recommend using g-sync when gaming on the laptop screen and capping the FPS 260 or your screens refresh rate when not so what does g-sync do well when g-sync is enabled it limits the max FPS to the screens refresh rate which in
This case is 75 I recommend everyone using g-sync instead of the higher spss as anything over 75 does not help when gaming on the laptops display if you however happen to have a non g-sync monitor with a higher refresh rate like 144 hertz obviously use that the benefit with g-sync is that gaming skills smoother as it synchronizes your screens refresh rate with the FPS you get that means both a smoother feel had no screen tearing whatsoever and in this case it also lets the GPU run more stable quiet and most importantly cool the build quality of
The actual laptop is not like great it's mainly made out of plastic which makes it feel not as premium at a laptop with a full metal design and in terms of portability it's a 17 inch laptop it's down to be big and heavy it actually weighs 6 pounds but it's still one of these smaller and thinner 17-inch gaming laptop this exact laptop is available in a 16 inch format which would obviously be a better choice for people going to LAN parties and stuff like that the keyboard is one of the click you're feeling ones which gamers love it's got a backlight not RGB
Though so you cannot change the color and a thing I don't like with the keyboard it's the quick access tools because there are no media controls on them now the trackpad is nowhere near close to Apple's but it is one of the better windows-based trackpad the SSD is in the MDOT 2 format is SATA though so you will be getting pretty average SSD speed inside the laptop there's also a normal hard drive which is great for game and media storage in terms of battery life you can expect around 6 hours of video playback and around one and a half hours of gaming
But the thing with these big and powerful laptops are that you're not getting the maximum performance when gaming on battery the inbuilt battery just cannot supply enough power so don't expect to gain without a wall outlet nearby so to answer the question can this laptop replace your gaming PC well yes if you've got power nearby the g6 1060 is pretty much perfect it can handle any game you throw at it at 1080p and at least medium settings so with that said who is this laptop for it's basically for gamers on the go with a wall outlet nearby so on a train a LAN
Party and stuff like that it works perfectly so what do you guys think of the asus rog GL 702 vm let me know in the comments down below and i'll see you guys in the next video peace
