Chassis, connectors, Asus ROG Griffin GZ755GX-E5030T display
This notebook sports a design can no longer gamer with its silver and black finishes, its angular lines and touches of orange.
Cooling is provided by HyperCool Pro Technology HyperFan technology combining 2 fans of 12v heat pipes, 4 ventilation grilles and tunnels anti-dust.
In terms of connectivity, this computer gamer is well equipped. There are 1 USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3, wireless Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect remotely, HDMI video outputs and mini-DisplayPort convenient to easily connect this PC to a TV by for example, Ethernet and audio ports, not to mention 3 USB 3.0 / .1 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 / USB devices are plugged into it. 1.
Of course, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit – here by a RGB Aura Sync system – so that one discerns correctly its keys in the dim light.
With its G-Sync technology, the screen improves rendering by synchronizing with the graphics card. In addition, its frequency of 144Hz enhances the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz.
The players will be seduced by the screen but not that, the creative ones too. 100% sRGB and IPS, the display shows the colors more accurately than average and provides comfortable viewing angles, both vertically and horizontally. Accurate by its definition Full HD, the screen is also very suitable for High Definition content like videos because of its 16 / 9th format. With its anti-reflective treatment, the screen guarantees better visibility in a bright environment than a glossy panel and is more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus ROG Griffin GZ755GX-E5030T
The Asus ROG Griffin GZ755GX-E5030T is aimed at those with a very high budget and want to acquire a versatile and powerful 17-inch laptop in games and creative oriented.
It stands out with its unlocked Hexa Core i9-8950HK Coffee Lake processor that can be overclocked. It provides a global power to seduce the most demanding users because it is coupled with a large amount of RAM 32 GB. In
other words, the daily operation is super fast. The creative ones will be filled by the treatments performed much faster than if we were dealing with a quad core processor and 8 GB DDR4. The difference is very noticeable under the demanding CPU and RAM workloads exploiting the multicore architecture. This is for example the case in photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
In games however, the contribution of the Hexa Core is variable compared to a Quad Core.
The games can just run without compromise on this notebook because it takes advantage of the most powerful dedicated graphics card of the moment, the GeForce RTX 2080 high-end NVIDIA Turing ray-tracing.
Despite the presence of G-Sync incompatible with Optimus, Asus still offers to benefit from one or the other (but it requires a restart).
In practice, the NVIDIA Optimus technology solicits the GeForce RTX 2080 automatically and in real time when the performance of the modest Intel UHD 630 solution is insufficient to perform the required tasks. Housed in the processor, the Intel UHD 630 is indeed maximized by Optimus because its low energy consumption promotes autonomy. Of course with the GeForce RTX 2080 or Intel UHD 630, it is possible to watch photos and videos.
Storage is up, offering a total capacity of 2000 GB! Hybrid, includes 2 SSDs of 512 GB in RAID to install the games / software in addition to the OS. They come with a 1000GB SSHD hybrid hard drive whose cache is used to accelerate the most frequently used data stored on it.
Of course thanks to the double SSD, we get excellent fluidity and responsiveness in everyday life (including games!), Much better than with a simple hard drive. Startups / stops and games / software launches are also much faster.
Also keep in mind that heating and noise are in order when this notebook is highly stressed. However, this is of course more moderate than with a thin model. And autonomy side, plan about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
