HWM (Malaysia) - - TEST - By Peter Chu


But at least you can rest as­sured know­ing that the ROG G752 has more than enough grunt to over­come all the stren­u­ous tasks and work­loads that you might throw at it, con­sid­er­ing that our two-week stint with it was noth­ing short of smooth sail­ing.

Our trou­ble-free ex­pe­ri­ence with the ROG G752 was made even more en­joy­able by its red back­lit key­board which, frankly speak­ing, is eas­ily one of the best note­book key­boards we've ever used. It has plenty of travel (up to 2.5mm, ASUS con­firms), substantial lev­els of feed­back, and it feels really dense and meaty to type on – which are all plus points in our books. If you're more of a diehard gamer than a se­ri­ous typ­ist, you'll prob­a­bly be more ap­pre­cia­tive of its 30-key rollover in­stead.

As for the bench­mark num­bers, the ROG G752 man­aged to earn a score of 6,645 for PCMark 8's Cre­ative bench­mark, 4,693 for the Home bench­mark, and 5,393 for the Work bench­mark. The GTX 980M re­sid­ing within the ROG G752 def­i­nitely didn't dis­ap­point, as it man­aged to ob­tain im­pres­sive scores of 8,327, 2,271, and 4,327 for 3DMark's Fire Strike, Fire Strike Ex­treme, and Fire Strike Ul­tra bench­marks, re­spec­tively. It did pretty well in the Unig­ine Heaven bench­mark too, judg­ing from the way it per­formed on the Ex­treme pre­set and in Full HD res­o­lu­tion with an av­er­age frame rate of 44.9 fps.

The ROG G752 like­wise had lit­tle trou­ble run­ning games such as Far Cry 4, Fall­out 4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and Rise of the Tomb Raider, even though they were each run­ning at their high­est pos­si­ble graph­ics set­ting. Out of the four ti­tles, it was Fall­out 4 that ran the smoothest, with an av­er­age frame rate of 63.8 fps. Far Cry 4 tailed closely be­hind with an av­er­age frame rate of 60.1 fps, while Rise of the Tomb Raider came in third with an av­er­age frame rate of 56.8 fps. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gave the ROG G752 a good work­out, as it squeezed out an av­er­age frame rate of 40 fps.
