The GL552JX is another powerful gaming machine in ASUS’ revered Republic of Gamers (ROG) series. Flaunting a compact design, the gaming laptop features a large Full HD IPS display, ample RAM, powerful Intel Core i7 processor and discrete NVIDIA GeForce graphics card for superb gaming experience.
Design and Display
Featuring what its maker described as ‘stealth fighter-inspired design,’ ASUS ROG GL552JX looks just like what one would expect of a regular gaming machine from the Taiwanese company, especially in terms of durability.
Its lid has a brushed metal feel, with an illuminated ASUS ROG logo set in the centre of a light grey inlay. At a weight of about 2.6 kg, the ROG GL552JX is noticeably lightweight and should enable exciting on-the-road gaming.
A large 15.6-inch diagonal display is fitted on ASUS ROG GL552JX. The matte IPS screen with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels delivers amazing wide viewing angles of up to 178 degrees.
The machine features a responsive ClickPad and a ROG-red backlit keyboard with dedicated numeric pad for problem-free usage in poorly-lit settings.
For smooth gaming performance, the ASUS ROG GL552JX packs a quad-core, fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor. The powerful CPU will be paired with 8 GB of RAM, or even higher, for highly responsive gaming performance.
Smooth and enjoyable graphics will be crunched by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics card that supports Microsoft DirectX 12.
ASUS ROG GL552JX will come with either up to 2 TB of hard drive storage or up to 256 GB of M.2 solid-state drive storage for faster boot-up time and greater speed. If you will need to replace the drive provided, the process is simple: you just need to slide off the upgrade panel.
Available ports and interfaces include two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI output port and a VGA port; there is no DisplayPort in sight, however. Quality audio is covered by two, upward-firing speakers backed by ASUS SonicMaster and ROG AudioWizard technologies.
