This benchmarks must have been done before driver updates because i can run battlefield 4 at 45-52 fps on ultra at 1080p and thats on a 64 person server.it also runs sleeping dogs at 1080 maxed out with the hd texture pack at 30+ fps. i used fraps for my fps marker. The core clock on the video card will go over 950 mhz and the memory will go over 4k mhz but still stays around 65c

Hi, with regard to the DPC latency, that actually looks pretty high to me! Sure, there are no spikes which is a good thing. But I'd like to use the laptop for pro audio. Is there any chance of doing an updated DPC check once the tool is compatible with Windows 8? Thanks.
G750jw on Amazon - Amazon.com GOTO: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00COQIKB4/2012-2013-20 Great laptop for any entertainment purposes whether gaming or audio. Very nice slick design considering its 17.3" body. Will run most games on decently high settings. 374 reviews for amazon.com Shop for G750jw on Amazon. Compare by Price & Brand.
I got this notebook, and here are some thoughts that might help other readers:
1. The 5400RMP makes the notebook quite slow overall. Surprising decision by ASUS to go with this - probably to reduce heat and noise. You should plan on upgrading the drive to a SSD. It is a shame to have such a great machine with such a slow drive. The good thing is that with 1TB of space, the drive is ideal to be a secondary storage drive.
2. The size of the touch pad, causes the area of the palm below the thumbs to touch the pad. With gestures turned on, this causes the right palm to create the swipe in gesture to bring up the Charms bar inadvertently. This happens all the time. This issue would not have existed if the keyboard had been wider spaced and centered on the body rather than shifted left to accommodate the number pad on the right. This is a pretty bad design flaw - may have to turn off at least the charms bar gesture due to this. What is even more aggravating is that ASUS does not let you change the gesture to make it different - you can only turn off or turn on the gestures. Another severe limitation to think about.
3. The Smart Gesture software supports all the typical gestures found on the Macbook trackpad, but sadly you can only turn them off and on. Cannot change the location of the swipe or anything else. Very limiting and irritating.
4. Having the entire touchpad and keyboard shifted to the left is very disconcerting. Many windows (especially newer full screen application windows) are centered on the screen, and you constantly get the feeling of being in a left-hand drive car. Almost all notebooks are beginning to have this flaw. The one lone one that I have found to not have this is the ThinkPad W530. I hope they keep their sensible keyboard layout. Numberpads are overrated. For gaming it is better to get a separate stand alone device with the right keys - or even a standalone USB numberpad. Another bad design flaw.
5. As was stated by Allen.Ngo, the graininess is similar to other panels with anti-glare. It becomes visible on white backgrounds if you look at the panel surface instead of looking (as one usually does) deeper into the text/graphics on the display. Not too bothersome, but you will clearly see the difference between it and a glossy screen. The glossy of course has the problem with reflection.
6. The rubberized lid cover is nice - has a soft touch to it, BUT, it gathers dust very easily. Because of its soft rubber texture, the dust sticks to it and is difficult to clean away. It does not just swipe away. You will need to carry along a lint-free wipe of some kind and be wiping it every so often.
7. There is no latch mechanism to keep the lid close to the base when closed. The lid literally bounces around a bit in the closed position. Very strange. There is no magnetic support to keep them together either.
All these issues apart, the machine seems to be nice. Will likely be keeping it, though disappointed with the above factors. It is still perhaps the best machine on the market at its price point. Did not stress it too much, but it seems to stay cool, and for normal usage it is inaudible.
Could the higher (than the G75VX) temperatures be simply because of the higher ambient room temperature (24 Celcius vs. 20 Celcius)?
Clearly the new GTX GPU is causing the higher temperatures, and I suppose the associated fan noise. I wonder how much of the noise is due to the HDD. An SSD should help with both the heat and the noise.
Reading the first review of a Haswell processor based notebook, great expectations has been on this processor from Intel, promising much lover power consumption, and thereby much lower temperatures and much longer battery life.
But looking at the temperature case temp measurements, nothing seems to have changed, in fact the overall performance seems to be worse than from Sandy Bridge. No fan-less notebook, but instead temperatures at about 10 deg C higher than on Sandy Bridge.
This might be because the stuffed in dedicated graphics card, it is a gaming PC, at least this is what this review concludes. We newer know, since this review didnt handle this issue.
One thing is for sure, the fan is still there, about 50db, which is significantly higher than on a Sandy Bridge notebook - but still this review rates 50db as silent, 50 deg C as low temp - I wonder if notebookcheck has been stroke by a hot summer and lost the sense what is hot and what is cold, what is silent and what is loud.
So, did Intel finally provide a processor for fan-less operation ? Did Intel narrow the gap to ARM processors - we still dont know, but have to wait for further notebook-checks.
Can somebody please tell me why is the newer revision of this laptop hotter and louder than the previous one? For example, max noise level: 2013 G75=49.3, last year's G75=42.4. Here is the link to the review:
Hello, could you tell me if the panel(Chi Mei CMO1720) is as "granular" as the panel(Chi Mei N173HGE-L11) found on the Clevo P170SM (One K73-3N) ? Thank you by advance.
Hi, I don't have any information about the Clevo P170SM panel but i had a chance to test the G750 panel. I recognized the grainy panel while working and it was really annoying for me to look at white/light backgrounds with some text on it. As soon as you're moving the head slightly I noticed the effect. It was also not possible for my wife to use the panel because of the effect. Don't get me wrong - it's a good panel for gaming etc. but I wanted to use the notebook for developing also so I needed a better display and sent this Notebook back.
