I have this laptop since early 2014 nad it proves to be a great machine. With Wondows 8.1 laptops gets new life. My machine is fitted with 2133MHz ram and it scores 17400 3DMark Vantage and 23000 3Dmark06. Our second laptop is CLevo W370ST with 4710MQ and GTX765. ASUS beats CLEVO in every benchmark and every game. The data provided in test are very low. My machine scores 3000+ in Firestrike nad 9200 in Catzilla . Most probably yours was broken:)
Asus G75VX also has a flaw with the location of the Kensington Lock port. Due to the location in the back by the fans, it has a raised surface just outside the port and wont let any of the locks hold securely. Still trying to find a lock that will work but even Asus support and estore couldn't help. Nothing like spending $1600 and not being able to lock it up at School...
ATTENTION: This and every other G75VW/G75VX model that comes with AUO B173HW02 V1 panel, suffer from serious flickering when there is a black/grey background on screen. Very disappointed by ASUS and also by the fact that this review did not mention this and made me choose this laptop. The issue has been confirmed by several G75VX users and is not software-related. ASUS have yet to make a public announcement for RMA. Stay away until (if ever) there is a fix.
Thank you for explaining why the G75's have not used Optimus. I have always wondered why some make/models of gaming laptops don't embrace a switchable graphics technology. When will the 670mx be offered in the American market?
Hardware update. In line with the recent product releases, Asus bestows its 17 inch machine new high-end components. Owing to the modern Kepler architecture, the GeForce GTX 670MX promises more power and a longer battery runtime. We put the G75VX through its paces in this in-depth review.
