Hey, i was wondering if there was or is going be(within the next months or so) an Asus laptop that allows for 120hz display? The most recent I could find at 120HZ was the G750JH. Would someone happen to know if there will be a g571 with 120HZ, or a G750 that has come out after the G750JH with 120HZ display?

Many thanks

lightree, where did you find a 120hz G750JH? The only 120hz / 3D model I know of is the G750JX, and those were a small production run that is almost impossible to find.

So far Asus hasn't found a need for high refresh screens, and with the last round of G750JM/JS/JZ they went with Optimus, using the Intel iGPU as the external video interface, which meant the max refresh available was 60hz - Optimus/Intel limited.

IDK if Asus is going to come out with another G750 model release, but the new G751JT/JY have direct Nvidia GPU connection to the internal screen and HDMI/DisplyPort/VGA, and no Intel GPU / Optimus so those panels can have custom resolutions up to the refresh the panel can handle - we don't hve the specs on the max refresh rate of the new LG IPS panel yet.

You could give Asus feedback here, a couple of places like Feedback, Chat, etc the more the better - they need to hear from buyers / owners / potential customers what they want before they will make it. Enough people complained about Optimus and the TN screen so the new G751 has both customer requests fulfilled :)

There might be even better places for your country / area, so google it :)

The best you can do for refresh right now is on a G750JW/JX/JH with a Chi Mei screen set to 100hz. The AUO screen at 70hz. And first reports on the LG IPS is that increasing the refresh rate increases the chance of "burn-in" that holds longer than if run at 60hz - it sustains the image longer at higher refresh.

Let us know what Asus says :)

Hey, this is the model I was looking for, JH in 120Hz. THanks for the answer though :) g750jh cv011h

Also, if you're interested, here's the JX, at 1200$, which is super cheap, I just don't have the cash right now :p

lightree, there is only one other thread mentioning the g750jh cv011h, along with a video of the laptop.

There was never a version for sale in the US, the g750jh cv011h is only listed from Europe/Turkey.

G750jh 3d?

There were a few G750JX 3D owners that posted in the forums, and for a long time they couldn't use the Nvidia released new drivers, only the Asus original Nvidia driver worked.

If you find one, please post it here :)

After hours of research, I finally found a website selling the JH 3d@120Hz in Europe. http://www.techtube.sk/p/372/asus-g750jh-cv011h-win8
Ill be buying it soon, and will get it devlivered to someone I know there. Thanks for the help :)

I'm not sure if this is the correct way to post this, but since we're on the topic of 120Hz G750s...
I have the 120Hz glossy G750JX. Of course, this means that I don't have optimus, and I can only use the 770M.
I'm pretty sure the hardware setup won't allow this, but is there a way to activate the iGPU, perhaps by reducing the refresh rate? Not really something I need, just curious. :)

linear214, the G750JW/JX/JH and G751JT/JY don't have the Intel iGPU wired up to the display / hdmi / displayport / vga. The Intel GPU is completely disabled and not powered up. The Intel GPU is totally unavailable.

Yeah I thought so, just wanted to confirm. Thanks.

Hey, since you're here, I have a question for you :) How does the 120Hz refresh rate feel on the laptop? Is it just like you'd expect a 120Hz monitor to feel, or is it somehow different?

I haven't actually used any 120Hz monitors besides this one so I don't know how to describe it besides that it feels super smooth, and now I can't go back to 60Hz because it would feel way rougher. Helps a ton when playing any multiplayer shooter too. It even makes the windows metro animations ultra silky. But to answer your question to the best of my ability: Yes, logically this is what a 120Hz monitor would offer I suppose. Way smoother in everything and more responsive-feeling. Couldn't be happier.

Fun Fact: It actually didn't say it was 120Hz anywhere on the product page. It just said it was 3D, so I bought it off the premise that 120Hz is a requirement for Nvidia 3D Vision.
