ROG G751- Gaming desktop levels of performance
ROG G751 holds an Intel Core i7 processor that delivers smooth and powerful performance. It also features the latest enthusiast-grade NVIDIA GeForce GTX970M/980M for sharp, vivid visuals. All that performance is enhanced by ASUS TurboMaster technology to boost real-time GPU overclocking up to 5%.
The G751 demonstrates exceptional thermal efficiency with minimal noise thanks to copper heatsinks and intelligent dual fans that expel hot air via rear vents, keeping CPU and GPU temperatures low even under overclocking conditions. G751 also has GameFirst III which gives users lag-free gameplay by prioritizing game packets and allocates more bandwidth for smooth, lag-free gaming. It features four preset packet-priority modes, and manual settings for users who want total control over their network. The built-in Network Monitor tool even lets users manage network traffic and test connection speeds.
ROG G751 has a matte, anti-glare Full HD IPS display with wide 178-degree viewing angles for minimal color shift even when viewed from extreme angles. G751 supports external 4K/UHD (ultra-high-definition) displays too, with Trinity Display technology giving users a total of four displays (notebook display and three external displays) to work on simultaneously through HDMI 1.4, mini DisplayPort, and VGA output ports. This arrangement is ideal for multi-screen gaming, movie watching, or multi-tasking.
ROG G751 retains the classic stealthy F-22 Raptor-inspired lines found on previous G Series iterations; and sports an aluminum finish and illuminated ROG logo. Specially designed for gamers, G751 has dedicated keys for instant access to Steam and one-click gameplay recording. The ASUS ROG Macro Key can be programmed with up to three commands for complex in-game multi-key actions, launching applications, or loading up a specific website with one keystroke. ASUS SonicMaster and ROG AudioWizard enable powerful, optimized audio for all game genres.
The seamless one-piece chiclet keyboard is ergonomically-angled for user comfort, making it ideal for marathon gaming sessions. Keys have an adjustable backlight that glows red in dark environments, and there are even specially-marked WASD cursor keys.
