Here you go, new pictures from all angles :)

Last picture is a G74 for comparison... It seems like G75 is thinner, not bad^^

Holy crap! It's just so... thin... and beautiful!

It's a good thing it's not really worth it to upgrade to it.

The weight was decreased and it has also a small upgrade.... it does worth the upgrade, let's see the price now...

cooling looks like it wont be as good as the G74, considering its smaller, so that bios might throttle like no tomorrow......... looks good though (aesthetic wise)... they should have put dedicated media/email (fn gets irritating sometimes) keys between the numpad and keyboard.

So it looks like it'll have 4 USB3.0 ports? Kinda nice, but I'm fine with the 1 that I have on my G74 lol. I do kinda like that it's thinner, but like Boosted_R said, I don't think the cooling will be as great as the G74. The only thing that the G75 has that I want is a NumLock key =P

Why would the cooling be worse for G75? It has huge exhaust vents and the fans can be removed/cleaned. By having the case more compact, shouldn't it be easier for the fans to push out the hot air?

I mean, by having a smaller area to work at, the fans should more efficiently cool the different parts?

Here is a better picture of the vents...

@Doan
Someone will buy this since it looks like Asus have been working on to make it thinner then G73/74 models, and then look more atractive for the buyers ;)

But I think that they will not join this forum just to tell you that the numlock key works as it should, so you will have to wait for one of the admins here to take a peak look at it and give a full review about this new beast :)

@Nirneath
I think that the cooling system will be either as good as the G74 or a little better. I can not image that this would be worse then the G74 model or the G73. But to be sure about that, we would have to wait until it comes a completely review and see what the reviewer thinks :)
I cant wait until it's on the market, but if the G75 comes with the Intel Ivy Bridge processor, then it won't be released before june :(

The only thing I see worthy of the new G75 is the fact it has four USB 3.0 ports. Other than that, it seems to be the exact same. (Though I did hear it has a Num Lock button now...not that I ever really used that damn thing anyway, so what do I care?)

I'd say most people are willing to let photos slide as they usually only increase hype and are therefore positive. Performance numbers under NDA on a pre-release product are an absolute no no and will be removed. Given that the release version of products can differ, setting expectations incorrectly can be very bad.

Amazon is listing one G75 model and claims it ships in 1-2 months (I don't believe amazon shipping estimates for any non-released product).
http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-G75VW-AS71-17-3-Inch-Laptop-Black/dp/B007MW73C2/ref=dp_return_1?ie=UTF8&n=541966&s=pc

I just got a G74SX-AH71 from Amazon and it had a defective screen (bright border all the way around making black to grey) so was returning it. Can't get an exchange right away as the G74SX-AH71 is sold out and will be 3-4 weeks before there are more. Now I'm stuck with no laptop and trying to decide if I should wait for the G75, get the G74SX-DH71 from amazon (more expensive) or G74SX-NH71 on sale at newegg.

I beleive hat is a Thunderport! (I feel compelled to make an exclamation mark for that name). It is a high speed io port pushed by apple. I hate it because it replaced the dvi port on my new work mac laptop and my 30" monitor can't use it directly. Also to use the 30" monitor I have requires using the port plus a usb port to get full resolution. So it was a waste of a port for me since I have to use two ports (and the mac is stingy with usb ports).

BrodyBoy
03-29-2012, 07:02 PM
Oh, very interesting! (I felt compelled to use an exclamation mark as well! :))

That would be an Intel Thunderbolt. Dual-channel 10Gbps per port, capable of daisy-chaining, electrical or optical, with low latency.

You see, son, when a man (PCI Express) and a woman (DislayPort) love each other very much...

[Edit] Btw, that daisy-chaining thing: connect your laptop to a monitor, then a hard drive to the monitor; use the hard drive on the laptop.

[Edit 2] This is actually great news. Manufacturers are adopting this technology! It was called LightPeak / LightRidge before changing the name to Thunderbolt.

I was happy with my ROG once I did the clean install... except for the display fault. What I'm grumbling about is being back to the decision making phase. If I could have just exchanged it for a replacement in a couple days (rather than 3-4 weeks) all would have been good. But now I have to decide on paying more for a G74SX-DH71 now from Amazon, getting a cheaper G74SX-NH71 plus 4gb ram from Newegg now, or waiting even longer than the exchange for a G75VW-AS71 from Amazon whenever it actually ships. Plus the new G75VW-AS71 was the same price as the G74SX-AH1 I'm returning to Amazon.

My decision making was supposed to be over.

Was very handy info... on further research I find that my mac has a mini display port (which is a waste of space when you have a 30" monitor) and was partially the basis for the thunderport which would be able to drive my entire 30" display without using a USB port as well. My anger at the mini display port making me buy a $100+ adapter and still not working well with my DVI KVM switch still bugs me to this day and spilled over to the thunderport.

The thunderport will actually be pretty cool once more devices are out for it. It being on the ASUS was a surprise until I realized Intel was also behind the port.

Hmm. I'll bet for the one that stands for the cooling not being as good as is with the current G74SX. Size DOES matter in the cooling solutions, and components haven't become less heat generating in a year, now have they? But still if its not as good, the difference won't be that notable I think.

Anyway, looking good!

I agree.....it appears to be a completely different cooling configuration. This seems odd, since the G74 has the best laptop cooling I've ever seen. (Oddly, the G75 has filters that you have to take out and clean periodically....never seen that before!)

I think VGA & DVI ports (on laptops) are both becoming obsolete. HDMI has been around for awhile, and now Thunderbolt is starting to appear. There's just isn't going to be room or interest to keep supporting "legacy" ports like VGA and DVI. (DVI, in particular, doesn't make a lot of sense, since it's redundant to HDMI.)

I will never buy another top end laptop from ASUS again. Way to many problems with the G74SX (crappy keyboard being the major issue).

Seems they learned their less about the retarded calculator key instead of a num lock, but there still is not num lock support for the G74SX.

*MAYBE* if I got a trade in of 70% of the purch price as a credit.. but they lost a customers with the keyboard non-sense.

GAMES!!!!! Its a GAMING LAPTOP. MANY, MANY games allow you to make commands.. so you can have 48 commands mapped to the keypad 24 in keypad mode, 24 in numlock-pad mode.

like in FSX views are ALL based on numlock combination. Hit the numlock key and then you have flight surface commands.

Its a HUGE DEAL.

Unless I'm missing something obvious, there are definitive improvements from the G75. RAID for one. The G75 manual online specifically references RAID. Multiple USB 3.0 ports also a plus. The new processor which should run cooler, the improved keyboard. I also admire the DIY approach allowing the consumer access for easier maintenance. I also believe moving back to a symmetrical design helps cooling. From the pictures I've seen, it's difficult to determine if the venting above the battery is functional or not. I very much agree with those that commented about legacy hardware. Follow the KISS principal and let it go. The one thing I would very much like to see is mSata. With this, RAID and a good backup plan, a very sweet setup.

Just my opinion. Let the bashing begin!!!

Before the G75 comes out they should do 3 sub forums, for the G53/G73, G54/G74, G55/G75. Will be easier for everyone, especially for new owners, and up coming G75 users...

One correction should be made:
1) G53JW-SW/G73
2) G53SX/G74
3) G55/G75

The G53SX is the 15-inch variant of the G74. It has the Sandybridge CPU, as well as the GTX560M. ASUS simply did not update the name. @Marshall, any reasons as to why?

MSI, Sager/Clevo, Alienware and Origin (so far) are all using Optimus and some have used it for quite some time now.

If ASUS still foregoes Optimus implementation, I will not consider them as a viable purchase until they do.

Zygomorphic
04-08-2012, 08:51 PM
Interesting, @Bojamijams, you and I have exactly opposite views. I do not want Optimus in my laptops for one/two reason(s): LINUX and/or drivers.

LINUX does not presently support Optimus, which leaves it stuck with the Intel integrated graphics. I do a lot of work on LINUX, so having nVidia graphics is a huge plus--also a reason I avoided the AMD graphics cards. AMD's support for LINUX, from what I can tell, has been fair to terrible--but I think they are starting to improve.

Also, Optimus requires OEM customized drivers, which, considering ASUS track record of driver updates:1 update-in-progress in 9 months--seriously! Without Optimus, I can run the nVidia reference drivers--which I do on LINUX, and get all the latest updates. I run the reference drivers also on Windows, and at risk of starting another flame war:cool:, I have explained why on this thread (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?12263-Nvidia-GeForce-driver-update-296.16&country=&status=).

My justification for this is the G53 (and other G series) are gaming notebooks, requiring maximum performance with battery life a tertiary concern. Also, as I recall, I saw some benchmarks which indicate that Optimus can actually decrease frame rates under certain conditions. Not a big deal, but it caps the frame rate to a little over 60 fps on a 1366x768 monitor. For instance, the 1st gen Alienware m11x (manually switchable graphics--no Optimus) got better frame rates on certain games than did the 2nd gen. The 2nd gen had almost twice the CPU power, but it used Optimus, which cut the maximum framerates significantly.

On computers such as the m11x (insert appropriate ASUS notebook here) Optimus makes a lot of sense, and I would definitely agree with you. To me, at least, putting Optimus on the G55/G75 is like putting a spare gas can on a tank truck.

Maybe subdivide that subforum? I see your point though. I guess the problem is that some threads which are started about one laptop run over into others that have the same issues or capabilities--I'm guilty of it. Then it becomes hard to decide which subforum the thread goes in?

Entry-level GPU: GT 640, GT 650
Mid-range GPU: GTX 660, GTX 660 Ti
High-end GPU: GTX 670, GTX 680



The GeForce 600 Series contains products from two different generations of Nvidia GPUs. For laptop GPUs, the older Fermi architecture occupies both the entry-level and the top-end of the product lineup, while the newer Kepler architecture fills in the mid-range. Most of the desktop lineup is occupied by the Kepler architecture while the entry-level is occupied by the older Fermi architecture.


On March 22, 2012, the first Kepler products joined the 600 series: the GTX 680 for desktop PCs and the GeForce GT 640M, GT 650M, and GTX 660M for notebook/laptop PCs. The GK104, which powers the GTX680, has 1536 stream processors, in eight groups of 192, and 3.5 billion transistors. The GK107 (GT 640M/GT 650M/GTX 660M) has 384 stream processors.

This is hell...it's a complete mess. So for laptops 660M will be Kepler and 640M/650M/670M/680M will be Fermi while for desktops 640/650 will be Fermi and 660/670/680 will be Kepler?

The 680 will have 1536 stream processors but only for desktops as for laptops the 680 is still Fermi? And the 660? Is a Kepler but with less stream processors?

Can someone with decent knowledge on the matter, clarify what will be Kepler and what will be Fermi? I'm beginning to understand nothing...

660m is a Kepler. http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-660M.71859.0.html
670m is Fermi, an upgraded version of 570m. http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-670M.72197.0.html
675m is Fermi, an upgraded version of 580m. http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-675M.70785.0.html

680m will be a part of the Kepler family, though it might take some time before Nvidia decides to release it.

If you choose a G75 model with the 670m, it should be about 25% faster than the 560m that G74sx has. So when it comes to gaming, the G75 will probably be significantly more powerful than the last generation. This is according to benchmarks done on 3DMark 11 by notebookcheck.net.
I don't know how well the new Ivy-bridge will do against it's predecessor, so I don't have much to say about it.

Almost halfway through April and the G75 is supposedly going to be released this month, but no official announcement yet? Does anyone know how much longer we may have to wait?

My current laptop has been on its last legs since late January and I'm anxiously waiting for the G75, but it's getting difficult not having a usable laptop! :(

Is the 670 one of the genuine Keplar boards or a Fermi that's on a smaller die and so is more power efficient?

The 660m might have been better it is built with the 28nm process while the 670m is built with the 40nm process. So the 670 will run hotter. I don't know maybe it doesn't matter.

670m is sadly a fermi, it's not more power efficient. Check the links in my post at page 6 for more detailed info.

Not better in terms of performance actually far off, but the 660m will probably run cooler, again maybe Asus has a card up their sleeve and will make it work like a dream. I hope so anyway.

Wow looks like a beast :D Digging the 4 USB 3.0 ports. I also like the DVI port where it is on this model... I always try plugging the AC cable in the RJ45 port when I'm not looking hahaha.

Definitely love the thin look but hopefully it will still have awesome cooling mechanics as it's predecessor the G74sx.

I think if they start releasing this model with SDD's it would be a very viable upgrade for most. .,... Also super stoked to hear it will be rocking a raid controller :D

Definitely consider the upgrade from my G74SX 3De model already :P (Only if they release a matte screen) Can't stand glossy screens.

Do you have a link comparing a 660m vs 670m?

Zygomorphic
04-14-2012, 11:45 AM
Other threads on the forum have noted--and rightly so--that the 660M is a true Kepler, manufactured on the 28 nm process, with all the benefits that 28 nm lithography provides. The 670M is a rebadged 570M with a slight bump in clock-speed, similar to the AMD pattern of rebadging parts.

According to the Nvidia website the 670m is 35% faster than the 660m, here is the link: http://www.geforce.com/hardware/notebook-gpus/geforce-gtx-670m

That's a custom reseller....they typically offer those kinds of options. (The G74 can be similarly customized if you buy it through one of these sellers.) I seriously doubt that Asus will offer this option in its own configurations.

Guys quick question.....what do you prefer, a laptop with 3rd gen core i7 and GTX670M or one with 2nd gen core i7 (2670QM) and GTX580M.
I'm just in process of buying another gaming laptop but need to choose between these 2 models (the first being ASUS G75 and the second MSI GT70. I know the GTX580 is an 256-bit card and about 20% more gaming performance.

I hope you know that MSI is getting out their new gaming series as well, the old ones will not be the only options, so there will soon be laptops for those who want Ivy Bridge + GTX675m(which is like an overclocked 580m) or faster configurations.

When I look for gaming laptops, I don't only look for faster speeds, but also build quality, looks and relevant functions. What I have seen of G75, I think it's in my opinion good enough with 670m to buy before it's faster competitors.
Though, I need to see more of the new MSI laptops and the new Samsung gaming series to get a better idea of what the best purchase would be.

Hey everyone,

I'm thinking of picking up a G55 when it comes out. But what do you all think about the GPU? Should I go for the 660M (Kepler) or 670M (Fermi). I know the 670 out performs the 660M but does the new architecture have any other benefits to it?

Also, will the G55 be coming with the ROG bag and mouse like the older models? I want those too:cool:

Asus tends to come out with updated models every year. Some are major re-designs, some are just tweaks.

In three years, there will most certainly be newer models in the line-up.

I believe I read a comment from Marshall that the BIOS would similarly limit RAM to 1333MHz when the slots are full. My guess is that the G75 BIOS will be generally similar, as I think Asus has determined that limiting BIOS options results in fewer support calls and RMAs.

hello everybody, but a g75 with new amd radeon mobility anyone have notice?

Zygomorphic
04-21-2012, 12:53 AM
@Aras, you will want to purchase the GTX660M, it is a Kepler part. It will run cooler, have better battery life, and likely be as fast. Since it is 2 GB, it will have the 128-bit bus, which will limit the bandwidth, but 128-bit GDDR5 is still quite good. While the GTX670M may be faster in bandwidth and lightly higher in performance, it will also be a lot hotter. Cooler components means better lifespan--and more over-clocking headroom. While I don't really understand overclocking, I have read that the Kepler parts have a lot of room, because of the power-saving design.

Thanks Zygomorphic for answer. While nobody didnt answer me I made some research, and coclusion is very simple we have to wait until next week(Premiere ivy bridge) and guess first official performance tests with ivy bridge and kepler's technology.

Zygomorphic
04-21-2012, 09:00 AM
Great decision @Aras. Ivy Bridge is supposed to have some impressive power-saving capabilities, due to its 3D transistor design. That, combined with the power saving of Kepler, should add up to some impressive battery life. I don't know how much you need battery, but it is always nice to have, especially for any college students who carry their computers around.

Actually, I would assume that ASUS ROG series laptops are among the few that you can safely overclock. They have great cooling, and they are designed to be DTR notebooks. As always, it is up to the individual to decide if the few extra FPS are worth it.

I would suggest getting the $1250 g75 the only difference between the $1500 and $1250 is the HDD and RAM....which the $1250 has a 1TR HDD and 8 Gb of RAM...you can spend 50-80 bucks on 2 x8 GB RAM ad it will still be less then the 1500.... Just saying.

Without knowing where you live it will be difficult. There are a lot of custom shops in the US but if you live overseas shipping has some problems... Also you can see a list of models in the "Important Posts" on the top of the G75 and G55 section of the forum. Maybe its better to buy it already with the 670 and the ssd :P
