Review Asus G74SX-3DE Gaming Notebook

Notebookcheck
3 July 2011
  • Summary: New strengths. The new Asus G74 was already seen at the Cebit this year in Hanover, even if as a mock-up. It also hardened initial suspicions regarding the use of the new Nvidia GTX 560M graphics solution. Now the time has finally arrived and the gaming machine is slowly turning up in the first shops. Read here, how the 3D gamer fares in comparison to its predecessor, G73, and the current competition.
  • Pros: High-end case impression, Pleasant and generous keyboard, Excellent display, 3D function, Good application/gaming performance, Very quiet during load, Always very low surface temperatures, Top display brightness, top image contrast, matt display surface, 120Hz - 3D optional. Gamer heart (eye), what more could you want?
  • Cons: Always very audible in idle mode, Touchpad's stubborn multi-touch function, Scanty interfaces supply, Throttling during extreme load, No GPU-Switch (Optimus), The predecessor's very quiet office noise. Any device can be loud and deliver performance, but maximum performance with minimum noise emissions was Asus G series' figurehead until now. That's too bad, even if the G74SX is still unrivaled quiet during load.

Asus G74SX-3DE im Test

pc-magazin.de
9 December 2011
  • Summary: Das Design des G74SX-3DE ist laut Asus durch das der Tarnkappenjäger inspiriert, aber unauffällig ist das Gaming-Notebook aus der ROG-Reihe allein durch seine schiere Größe nicht.
  • Pros: 3D-fähiges Full-HD-Display, Blu-ray-Combo-Drive
  • Cons: Schwer, Kurze Akkulaufzeit

Asus G74SX: giochi senza frontiere

insidehardware.it
26 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Giunti alle conclusioni di quest'analisi, una premessa ci sembra doverosa. Alcuni, leggendo questa recensione si saranno chiesti quale sia il senso e l'utilità di questo prodotto. Sebbene in un primo momento, una soluzione per il gaming di tipo portatile (seppure con qualche limitazione in senso stretto di portabilità, tuttavia ben supportata dal produttore che fornisce in dotazione un robusto e spazioso zaino per il trasporto), possa sembrare infatti un controsenso, in...
  • Pros: Qualità costruttiva, Prestazioni, Bundle, Pronto per il 3D, Lettore Blu-Ray
  • Cons: La posizione di alcune connessioni potrebbe essere di intralcio al mouse USB., La portabilità ovviamente non può essere elevata
