Yes, it will run Crysis (and every other game)
The marketing pitch from Asus for its new ROG G752 laptop is that it will run any game you throw at it. That’s the benefit of pairing an Intel Skylake processor with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 980M GPU.
The ROG G752 is a 17.3-inch laptop with a Full HD 1080p (1920×1080) resolution. It’s an LED-backlit IPS panel with support for Nvidia’s G-Sync technology.
Other specs will depend on the exact model you choose. There are several different G752 laptops with varying degrees of power. The ROG G752VY is the one with the GTX 980M GPU (not to be confused with the desktop-class GTX 980 built for notebooks), while some of the other configurations come with a GTX 970M or GTX 965M GPU.
On the storage side, Asus is offering up to 1TB of hard drive space or up to a 512GB NVMe M.2 SSD (256GB and 128GB options also available).
For cooling chores, the ROG G752 uses a “3D Vapor Chamber” alongside a copper heat pipe. The thermal design also directs dust into a dust-release tunnel to keep it away from internal components.
This is the Skylake successor to the G751 series, and while it retains a similar aggressive aesthetic design, Asus switched to an “Armor Titanium and Plasma Copper” color scheme. Like the G751, there are giant sized vents on the back to expel hot air.
Two of the SKUs are available to pre-order starting at $1,499 direct from Asus, while the others are listed as coming soon.
