ASUS G74SX-A1 gaming laptop gets rated, loves a bit of Battleship
The 1982 Lockheed Sea Shadow may be rusting away in Suisun Bay, but its
Commie-spooking contours haven't been forgotten. They apparently
inspired the design of the Asus G74SX-A1, which just won a HotHardware
recommendation for its cheese-eschewing looks as well as its
performance, efficient cooling and realistic $1749 price tag. For once,
the Core i7-2360QM CPU coupled with a GeForce GTX 560M and generous 12GB
dollop of DDR-1333 RAM actually conspired to surpass the
manufacturer's 3DMark benchmark claims.
It wasn't flawless though:
overall computing performance was middling compared to rivals; the
speakers were shoddy when it came to producing music rather than
explosions; and the 17.3-inch Full HD display was slightly wasted on
some games that only ran smoothly with high quality settings at
1280x720. Still, all this naval talk
makes us fancy some Silent Hunter 4 -- and that should play just fine.
