A 3D gamers’ delight but we want more
Asus G52J is the successor to the famed G53Jx 3D claimed to be the World’s first gaming notebook with support for NVIDIA 3D vision. The G53J differs from the G53Jx with the powerful NVIDIA GeForce GTX460M graphics card and an embedded 3D receiver. It’s built like a tank with a slightly thicker than normal plastic body and a rubberized matte-black finish on the outer surface of the lid & palm-rest, giving it a rugged feel and look.
The NVIDIA 3D vision feature delivered decent frame rates on Crysis Warhead. However, the image clarity looked blurry and disoriented at times particularly during fast-paced action. The stereoscopic 3D strained the eyes, as it delivered layered images on the screen to give us an illusion of depth. The battery life is ordinary, but that is to be expected from such a powerful configuration.
Overall, the ASUS G53J does not compare well with any of the top gaming laptops or even the Alienware M15x in terms of benchmarks or overall performance. It is a decent performer which even tops the Alienware M15x in the overall 3D Mark score. A staggering price of Rs. 112,499 is too much for decent gaming laptop.
