CES 2017: ASUS ROG Gaming Laptops

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

ASUS is one of the most popular computer and computer component manufacturers in the world, and for good reason. They produce just about every type of component or accessory available, in addition to phones, tablets, monitors, and complete desktops and laptops. While many of their products are intended for the mainstream audience, ASUS is also strongly devoted to the PC gaming community. The ASUS Republic of Gamers—or ROG—sub-brand features a product line stacked with ultra-high-end tech designed specifically for the most demanding gamers.

We spent some time with ASUS at CES 2017 to learn about their newest ROG gaming laptop offerings, which pack desktop power and features into (mostly) portable PCs.

ASUS ROG Strix GL753 and GL553

First up, we have the ASUS ROG Strix GL553 and GL753, a pair of entry-level gaming rigs. Inside either laptop, you’ll find the latest Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake processors, for overall speedy performance. The GL553 sports a 15-inch screen, while the GL753 has a 17-inch display, and the laptops will be available with either an Nvidia GTX 1050 or GTX 1050 ti GPU. While not the fastest mobile GPUs around, these new cards will still perform respectably even with today’s AAA games. ASUS emphasizes that while great for gaming, the GL553 and GL753 also make perfect all-around productivity machines.

If you’ve ever been to our Glenview showroom, you know that things are always changing.
