Hardware Canucks doesn’t usually review notebooks – they typically stick to the components side of the business – but with gamers turning to dedicated gaming notebooks more and more they decided to take the ASUS G74Sx from the Republic of Gamers for a spin.
With a quad-core Intel Core i7-2630QM processor, 12GB of DDR3 memory, and NVIDIA’s GTX560M graphics card with 3GB GDDR5 VRAM this 17.3-inch Full HD notebook is head and shoulders above your typical PC when it comes to performance. This is no “ultraportable” – the ASUS G Series is the kind of PC that dominates the LAN Party. So what’s changed since the last iteration of the G Series?
The G74Sx features a totally revised cooling architecture. Dual fans channel air from the keyboard out two huge rear vents – keeping you not only cool, but also reducing noise so you can game in peace. Take that huge performance and the attention to detail and build quality that goes into a notebook that’s part of such a successful and storied gaming line and it’s clear to see why Hardware Canucks called the G74Sx a “Dam Good Value”. But enough commentary – see what they had to say in their full review.
