If you’re eyeing up a G75VW as your new ROG gaming laptop you might be asking; how well can it play games? I’ve already covered G55VW gaming performance, and now we’ve put the upgraded GeForce GTX 670M through the same set of tests in the G75VW. Its Full HD screen means it has more work to do in generating a smooth and playable FPS, with no minimum FPS dropping short causing stutter.
Using the same method as our G55VW and [url=http://rog.asus.com/111532012/rog-desktop-pcs/rog-tytan-cg8580-gaming-performance-at-1920x1080-and-5760x1080/]Tytan CG8580[/url testing, I’ve concentrated on giving you the best playable settings in top tier PC titles, in order to translate these directly to your own system.
G75VW Test Specification:
Intel Core i7-3610QM (2.3GHz x4, 3.3GHz Turbo Boost)
Nvidia GeForce GTX670M with 3GB VRAM (336 shaders @ 600/1,200MHz)
8GB DDR3 1,600MHz
750GB Western Digital Black HDD (ACHI mode)
Full HD (1920 x 1080) LED backlit display (non-3D)
Faster versions of the G75VW are available, so if you buy one with at least the above specification then you know the following IQ settings are playable in the following games (or future titles using the same engine).
1920 x 1080: All High, or the custom settings below.
If you don’t want to mess about with a nuances of customization putting the graphics setting to High affords very playable FPS. Unless you’re the most twitch-sensitive gamer, I found this gives a great balance of visual IQ and capable FPS.
We did find the system could be pushed a little more, which was fine in single player to make everything look that much tastier, but the multiplayer experience varies more and there’s less space overhead here for more likely FPS dips.
Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
1920 x 1080 – Ultra, 4x AA, 16x AF
8x AA was a no-go, but 4x AA – matching the GTX 660M in the G55VW – was perfectly playable.
Mass Effect 3
1920 x 1080 – Everything on Max
As was with the G55VW, Mass Effect 3′s game engine gets churned through by the latest GTX 670M. Turn everything on and have some fun!
