Asus is out with the world's first 5G, WiFi enabled gaming notebook, the ROG G75VW.
The manufacturer claims that this latest addition to its Republic of Gamers range of notebooks features a Broadcom 5G WiFi chip that is said to deliver three times faster Ethernet, whilst also being six times more power efficient than previous generations of WiFi.
"ASUS is committed to designing products that feature the most cutting-edge technology available. 5G WiFi is a gateway technology that promises to deliver the best online user experience yet," said Leon Yu, regional director for Asus. "We recognised the power of this next generation standard early on and committed to it being one of the first to offer an ecosystem of products powered by faster, more reliable WiFi. The ROG G75VW gaming notebook is one of them. Today, we're delivering on that promise".
The ROG G75VW is a gaming beast, featuring third generation Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge processors and Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M/GTX 670M GPUs with up to 3GB of GDDR5 VRAM. The notebook also supports 16GB of high speed DDR3 RAM and dual hard drives which can be set up to run in RAID 0 or RAID 1. It has a 3D, Full-HD, 17.3-inch LED backlit display which when combined with Nvidia 3D LightBoost technology and the built in subwoofer, completely immerses the gamer and enhances the gaming experience.
