Asus Adds Nvidia GTX 1060 To Their 17-Inch ROG Strix Laptops
The Nvidia GTX 1060 is a great budget GPU and you will be amazed what it is capable of at such a price. The ROG Strix GL702VM-DB71 and GL702VM-DB74, are similar to the ROG Strix GL502VS. Both these ROG Strix laptops house a Nvidia GTX 1060.
GL702 VM series features an Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor, supports up to 32 GB of RAM and has slots for an HDD and SSD. Previously, we have seen ROG Strix laptops with the GTX 1070s but those are pretty expensive. This new line which features the GTX 1060 GPUs is more economical.
GL702VM has a wider screen at 17.3-inch, it is an FHD G-Sync display. The laptops also feature triple-fan cooling. The GL702VMs also comes with a tactile keyboard which is another plus point. These laptops come with ROG Gaming Center software pre-installed. With the help of the software, you can optimize things like lighting effects, overclock settings, key macros, and more.
These may seem to be expensive but they are cheaper than the 1070 versions and are great value for money, relatively speaking. I know plenty of you will think that gaming laptops are not that great value at all and you are right to say that.
