Asus RoG Strix GL703GM-EE014T is a new laptop powered by the i7-8750H processor. (This i7-8750H is the 8th gen Coffee Lake alternative to the i7-7700HQ.) Such a 17.3 inch laptop is for people interested in a device with new and powerful components.
i7-8750H is the best mobile processor with 6 cores, 4.2 GHz (one core) and a TDP of 45W. It’s about 20% procent faster than i7-7700HQ and 15% percent than i5-8300H. Because of that this Rog Strix laptop is faster than older (previous generation) GL703 models.
On the graphics part it comes with the GTX 1060 6GB. I would have liked to see GTX 1160, but it seems than Nvidia will release it at the end of the year.
For memory it has 16GB of RAM, 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD. In my opinion, you don’t need more and because of than you don’t need to upgrade RAM or storage.
The display is very good because we’re talking about a 17.3 inch display with IPS panel and FHD resolution. The IPS pane gives us exceptional viewing angles and colors so that we can enjoy games and movies.
Usually the GL703 series comes with Windows 10 Pro, but depending from where you buy it and the configuration you could also get it with Home version.
Does not integrate an optical drive. So, if you want to install games or watch movies than you can use the Interent for downloads and streaming.
The design is like of a racing car. This is good and bad depending of the taste.
Portability is not that great with a weight of about 3kg and a battery that can last up to 4 hours.
There are many laptops with Kaby Lake processors but if you want to buy a new one with Coffee Lake than you should with GL703GM-EE014T from Asus.
Considering that this notebook is very new there aren’t many video reviews, but from the previous generations there aren’t many things changed… beside the processor.
