ASUS is calling the new, upgraded model, the G750JZ
Good news coming your way, gamer fans. ASUS might have been busy making a big fuss about its Transformer Book Duet at CES 2014, but that doesn't mean it has forgotten about you.According to the ASUS ROG Forums, the device marker has refreshed its G750 Republic of Gamers (ROG) 17.3-inch gaming notebook series by slipping in the next-gen NVIDIA GeForce GTX 88M graphics card.
The new model has been re-baptized the ASUS G750JZ, as opposed to the G730JW JX and JH models that have GeForce 700M-series GPUs.
Apart from that, we’re going to see 4GB of GDDR5 video memory (maybe an 8GB variant will also be made available). According to benchmarks performed on the new graphics card the GTX 880M should perform 12% faster than the previous generation, which is not an enormous leap, but it’s still something.
Specifications remain the same with the G750JZ. We have the same Full HD display, and the laptop still draws power from a 4th gen Intel i7 Haswell quad-core processor fitted with 4 slots that allow up to 32GB of RAM.
There’s no official availability date and pricing info, but the Aussie online store Line Link has the device listed for AUD$3,452 / $3,106 / $2,270 (note this is high-end configuration with max 32GB of RAM).
