ASUS added a new 17.3" gaming laptop to its Republic of Gamers (ROG) lineup, the G73Jh. This new system can be equipped with the Intel i7-820QM/i7-720QM, i5-620M/540M/520M/430M or i3-350M/330M processors, it comes with the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 1GB graphics card and uses the Intel HM55 chipset. Buyers can choose between a 1600 x 900 pixel or 1920 x 1080 pixel LCD display, the high-end models feature up to 8GB DDR3-1066 while the other models have up to 4GB DDR3-1066. Other features include up to 640GB HDD (5400RPM) or 500GB (7200RPM), dual-HDD support with RAID 0/1, a DVD burner and a 2MP webcam.
Strike in Silence: Designed for Serious Gamers
The G73Jh sports a striking angular design inspired by the iconic F-117 Nighthawk. Far from being merely cosmetic, every facet of the G73Jh’s design reflects a conscious effort to improve the user experience. For example, the placement of all the heat and noise-generating components at the rear of the notebook and the implementation of a unique twin rear venting system keep the heat and noise as far away from the user as possible. The innovative placement of components also allows the palm rest to be exceptionally thin, just like a desktop keyboard. Furthermore, the keyboard plane is inclined 5 degrees, improving ergonomics and thus ensuring optimal comfort while gaming and typing.
Dominate: Engineered for Extreme Performance
The G73Jh offers an aggressive specification that will exceed the needs of gamers for a long time to come. The top-of-the-line model sports an Intel i7 Intel Core™ i7-820QM processor, 8GB DDR3 SDRAM, an ATI® Mobility Radeon® HD 5870 with 1GB GDDR5 VRAM, and 1TB of storage space for incredible gaming and multitasking performance. The G73Jh also features one-click, on-the-fly overclocking capabilities—perfect for gamers looking to push the hardware to the very limit.
Believe: Purpose-built for Unprecedented Immersion
With its DirectX 11-capable graphics and simulated 7.1-channel HD audio with EAX 4.0 compatibility, the G73Jh delivers next-generation gaming on a mobile platform. Gamers will be able to crank up the settings in the latest games and still achieve blistering frame rates, as well as experience ultra-realistic in-game sound effects and perfect positional audio.
