ASUS ROG G74SX Now Available for Purchase and Fragging

By  |  3 Comments

The ASUS ROG G74SX announced earlier this month is now ready for gaming notebook buyers to snap at ExcaliburPC. They are the first to offer these Republic of Gamers notebooks here in the US. These gaming and HD video powerhouses come with an Intel Sandy Bridge Quad-core i7-2630QM 2.0 GHz processors and a 17.3″ screen with a 1080p resolution.

The two different models available - the G74SX-3DE for $1,979 and the G74SX-A1 for $1,745 both have an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M GPU with 3GB of DDR5 video RAM. The primary difference in these models is that the 3DE model offers 3D video playback on the 17″ display with included 3D glasses.


Gaming Cooling System

These new gaming notebooks also have a special cooling system that enables the system to stay cool even under processor intensive gaming sessions. The new ROG notebooks pull the air in from a front vent and fan, blowing it over the hot CPU and GPU, drawing the heat off of these components as the air is sucked out the rear fan. Most notebooks do not have this type of front to back fan system in place.



Blu-ray and 3D

In addition to very high-end gaming prowess, these notebooks include Blu-ray drives and in the case of the G74SX-3DE a 3D screen and glasses which can be used to watch 3D Blu-Ray movies and play 3D games.
