Hey guys, I can get these two at the same price, however I notice that the G750JW downclocks to .77ghz while on battery making it unusable for many tasks, so I'd need to stay plugged in all the time.
What do you guys think is better? G75VX or G750JW?
Thanks in advance

THanks for your input Intel Dude. How much better is the graphics chip?

bump, got about a week left to choose

I think you should hold out for the G750 JH should be released this month

I know that it has a better graphics card but for the money I think the JW is good enough for me, don't really want to spend any more haha

I wouldn't bother with JW. If you want 750 wait for JH, else go with 75VX.

Won't the jH be much more expensive?

08-10-2013, 11:09 PM
the G75VX would be ideal, not only you can upgrade the CPU, but you can clean the fans. idk I like the g75 model compared to the g750 ones.

you can upgrade the cpu in a laptp?

you can upgrade the cpu in a laptp?

Yeah, on the G75 models.

Wow that's cool

08-11-2013, 10:30 AM
Yeah, on the G75 models.

So I have the G75VW, and I've heard about being able to upgrade the CPU even before getting it, but how would you go about it? Normal desktop CPUs are easy, but I've never even seen mobile CPUs being sold anywhere.

What am I missing here?

I've got the G75 and after adding an 500gb SSD and additional 16gb memory the unit screams... I've got WIN 8 on the factory drive and WIN 7 on the SSD. Startup on the SSD is under 2 seconds and enjoy playing Diablo III without any lag. Hope this helps

Thanks :) What does installing a ssd help with?

08-11-2013, 07:34 PM
on laptop is much easier (well besides dissembling the whole laptop to access the cpu lol)
and the Laptop CPU's are sold mostly online. I've found many sold by Intel on amazon, ebay even newegg

Sounds good! Is it pricy or a hassle?

The VX to me is still the way to go over the G750JW.

Simply being the 670MX's are phenomenal overclockers.

I took the record for the fastest single 670MX on 3DMARK11 just a while ago after finishing up my modded vBIOS - http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/7013938 - That's right, first to hit 7000+ :)

There is more support for the VX model as of now than their is the G750's. So it all depends on what and where you want to be with your notebook when support or modding becomes part of your curiosity.

I prefer the older G look myself, but..

Potayto, potahto.

I don't plan on overclocking, since I have no clue what I'm doing and I'm not risking messing with anything haha, I guess now it's between the idfference of the processors since the graphics chips are very similar...

08-15-2013, 04:20 AM
Well if overclocking is not your thing or don't want to at all, stock for stock then, the 770M is faster right out of the box.

It's not the 770m its the 765m, which is a taddddddddddddddd better but very little. But how about the processors and their performance and besides those two I don't think anything else is different

compared to the gtx670mx* (it won't let me edit the post)

08-15-2013, 04:45 AM
My mistake, the 765M isn't even close to the performance of an overclocked 670MX, which if even if you don't do at first, remains still the better deal. The 770M from the JX is in comparison, a 670MX with higher clocks (no need to go further into this) so really, bang for buck despite being both similar in price, the JW and VX...

The VX is more in the gaming numbers and overclockable future proof for a while longer than a 128bit 765M.

Overclocking is very simple since you will be soft-limited to a max attainable overclock anyway, +135/+1000, so no damage can be done. You want a gaming notebook at the same price of a lesser GPU model -JW, the VX here would be choice.

Ah interesting thanks. How about the processors do you know?

08-15-2013, 05:01 AM
Honestly, there is very little noticeable improvement between the two CPU's, you would not notice the difference in CPU performance as much as you would side-by-side comparison with the GPU's.

08-15-2013, 05:29 AM
Don't let the model numbers direct your decision. A 4700HQ is not vastly improved beyond that of the 3630QM because of the model number being higher. Same goes with the 765M vs 670MX, etc.

Do a little research/homework between these 2 notebooks so you can see the numbers yourself, after all this is your purchase and probably one that will remain in your possession for a while. Make sure you get exactly what you want, and whether or not the price is worth what you are wanting to get out of it.

AS always, questions are welcome here, they never go out of style.
