ASUS is a powerhouse in the market for gaming laptops. The company’s Republic of Gamers (ROG) machines are arguably the ones to beat, but their prices can be a bit scary. The new ASUS R510JX is a more budget-friendly alternative with features such as a large Full HD display, robust Intel Core i7 processor, decent RAM and heavy-duty NVIDIA GeForce discrete graphics.
Build and Screen
The solidly-built ASUS R510JX features a black and white colour theme on its sides and has a dimension of 380 x 251 x 31.7 millimetres.
At 2.45 kilograms, the laptop isn’t exactly lightweight – gaming machines are not usually expected to be light anyway. It features a reinforced chiclet-style keyboard. The touchpad is large and supports multi-point smart gesture input.
IceCool technology helps to keep the palm rest cool. This machine sports a large 15.6-inch LED-backlit screen with Full HD (1080p) resolution. The anti-glare display is supposedly resistant to fingerprints and smudges.
The ASUS R510JX looks ready to deliver superb performance with fourth-generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor running under the hood.
The CPU, which gets ample support from 4 GB of RAM, delivers amazing speeds of up to 2.6 GHz and up to 3.6 GHz with Turbo technology.
In addition to integrated Intel HD 4400, the ASUS R510GX comes with robust NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M dedicated graphics card for powerful gaming performance.
In addition, gaming performance is given ample boost by features such as NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0, Optimus technology and GameStream.
Miscellaneous Specs and Features
Power is supplied by a 44WHr Lithium-Ion battery, which looks like one to get the machine running for several hours.
The available ports and interfaces on the ASUS R510JX include two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, a VGA port, an HDMI 1.4 video output port, an audio combo jack and an SD card reader.
For wireless connectivity, users get Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. The ASUS R510JX laptop runs on the latest Windows 10 (64-bit) operating system.
