what is it?why is it not been heard?
or is it only for China?
why GFX? - this is the same G750JZ, but with i7 4860HQ (which by the way the same 4700HQ, but the clock speed turbo boost 3.6 vs. 3.4),the same GTX880M, but instead of 4Gb - 8Gb ...


sorry for bad english ...

If it's only on our CN site, then it's currently only for China. :)

MarshallR, and if it's made in China it's only for China too? ;)

Come on man, spill it!, when are the Optimus Free ROG Laptops coming out?? :)


Funny, when our G75's came out there was a lot of people wanting to use the Intel onboard Graphics, You guy's with the G750 got it and want to get rid of it. And so the circle goes!!

Exactly. We fed back that people wanted it for better battery life etc, they put it in, now others don't want it...

Regarding the X series, sorry but it's a complete waste of cash. You can't seriously OC in a laptop, and for $1000 no one will buy this. What IS worth developing is an external graphics solution - have internal Intel CPU only for lightweight, then dock/plugin to have a fullgaming experience with 'proper' GPU.

Yes that they can't seem to figure it out so the ones that want it, get it. and the rest don't have to deal with it.

The expectation was Nvidia Optimus + Thunderbolt = eGPU without external display, so Optimus should have been a G750JM/G750JS thing: buying a G750JZ means you are not thinking to play with an eGPU. Battery life doesn't matter on G750: it's not a Zenbook.

Looks like MSI shares your idea.

Is Asus considering to go in that same direction?

ASUS is already sharing this idea with the SilverStone's collaboration SG Station 2, which was the reason everybody could have understood the G750JZ had Optimus enabled (if an Italian video on Youtube showing it was not enough).
The big problem now is the creator of this technology: Intel. Intel is not creating innovative CPUs, so people can live with old CPUs, so Intel is clearly destined to go bankrupt or shrink to a smaller company. The development cost of new CPUs is growing and they are starting to need more time, which means even more money. So they found an amazing idea to make more money: motherboards with integrated CPU, new incompatible CPU sockets, they will try to put integrated CPUs inside gaming desktops too.
Thunderbolt could be Intel grim reaper (because of eGPU people could stop buying so often), so Intel is trying to prevent this by denying Thunderbolt certifications. At this point two ways are possible: Intel stops denying certifications or an alternative to Thunderbolt is created.

Will ASUS survive? Yes. Will the ROG notebooks survive? Maybe, but not the G750 lineage. Probably ASUS will move from developing gaming notebooks every 12 months and updating after 6 months, to developing every 24 months and updating after 12 months.
Desktop and notebook markets will shrink, GPU market will explode (until saturation of the eGPU market) and ASUS will be a major player.
The future belongs to modularity, the future belongs to your mobile phone. :)
