    The New G750JY ROG Laptop - 8gb 980m

    Figure I would try to piece what I found out about this laptop (asus folks please chime in)

    Asus has it listed as so;

    Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 4860HQ /4710HQ Processor
    Chipset: Intel® HM87 Express Chipset
    Graphic: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX980M 8GB GDDR5
    Battery: 410 x 318 x 18 cm (WxDxH) (w/ 8cell battery)

    And all the usually mumbo jumbo that isn't as important

    I have been scouring the internets for more information and obviously am not sure what information is correct.

    This site seems to say there is an onboard graphics card as shown;


    This would also indicate that there is most likely optimus like the G750JZ that I currently own.

    Normally I wouldn't speculate that just because there is two video cards that optimus is there but considering that the videos of people in the device manager on their G751JY have only the 980m showing it is a fair bet the dual cards mean optimus.

    This does not mean that the site is right in the specs though.

    I really like the idea of keeping the same design that I have now with the chromed outlined trackpad and all. I think this Black and chrome with white leds is much classier than the dark red G751 models so to have the matching power, or even better more powerful G750JY would be fan-freaking-tastic!

    BUT IF IT HAS OPTIMUS!!!!! I WILL WRITE A MEAN LETTER TO ASUS STATING HOW BAD THEY MESSED UP NOT LETTING ME HAVE WHAT I WANT!

    Anyone with more info please chime in!

    Some more info here: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...-with-GTX-980M


    Currently we're speculating if it'll be a slim form factor like the G750 JW / JX models, and not the JH size with the larger fans.

    The height stated is 50mm. So we're in hopes for it to stay consistent.

    Thanks Darnassus.

    Would also be nice if it had a small form factor like the G751. Although I am not sure how I feel about the non-removable battery.

    Either way, optimus is a killer for me here. How can we contact ASUS techs to confirm?

    CoryBee, calling out the Intel GPU spec doesn't necessarily indicate Optimus.

    Some of the G751JT/JY owners said their laptops had Intel GPU stickers calling out the iGPU model, which confused them because they couldn't figure out how to access it.

    The G751JT/JY doesn't have Optimus, and there is a least a chance Asus didn't put Optimus on the G751JY - again there is no mention of the Intel GPU in the G750JY spec, and no mention of Optimus anywhere in the product page:

    So there is still hope

    There is also no mention of optimus or the dedicated GPU on the G750JZ I have on their product page.

    Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX880M 4GB/8GB GDDR5

    I am hoping it doesn't. Cause I will definitely be getting the G750JY over the G751JY, just for aesthetics alone, but would be a bonus to have the 8gb Vram.

    CoryBee, that's new, the G750JM/JS/JZ all had Optimus logos and mention of both GPU's at their release. I recall reading it and being disappointed.

    If Asus is going to ship before xmas, we should hear soon

    I WANT TO HEAR NOW!

    Thanks for giving me some hope though.

    I was all set to buy the G751JY, now I need to wait for the G750JY to be release to know if I want it. Kills me!

    ..... yeeeeeeeeah, I won't say this is confirmed. I bet he just looked at the second gen G750's the JM/JS/JZ and just answered 'yes'. People are only human, but the way he err.. 'functioned' just has me lose confidence in his feedback. Especially when he says 'These models'.

    Thanks for the log though Mr. Bee! :3
