Asus launched Asus ROG Strix GL553V its Republic Gamer sub-brand, which likes high-performance products and is willing to pay more for that privilege, to appeal to those buyers. ROG products typically have gorgeous names, aggressive styles, red accents, and lots of blinds.
The PC components in the series are designed to support overclock or overclocking, and detailed (or at least detailed sound) power, cooling and stability enhancements. The name of Strix came later, targeting gamers with the same aspirations, but not necessarily the budget’s luxury.
ROG, a top-level brand has been expanded with a dedicated community and in its own pursuance. In fact. The notebooks we are reviewing today are surprisingly unsuitable for Asus branding. This is called the Gamer Streaks of the Republic, Asus ROG Strix GL553V, and till you do not consciously look at them, you will not see the Asus name or logo anywhere on your box or body. ASUS or ROG are clearly targeting people who consider gaming their identity. If it looks like you, read it.
Asus ROG Strix GL553V Detailed
Asus ROG Strix GL553V look
In order to adjust top-end components, gaming laptops Asus ROG Strix GL553V are usually heavy and heavy and require them, and this is no exception. Considering the fact that the latest chips from Intel and Nvidia are relatively cool, we will feel something very attractive, but we think this is what people expect to look like a serious gaming laptop.
While opening the Strikers GL553V there were a neon orange broom and ROG logos on the lid, the first thing we saw. We are using to see such details, which is running a product, which becomes light, but this laptop looks like it is screaming to pay attention when it is closed. We found this little bit on top, but probably some potential buyers would like it.
The body of the laptop is plastic, but the surface of the lid is metal downstream. It’s black with a nice brush finish, which would look great, it was not for the above orange accent. It raises fingerprints and spots very easily.
Island style keys come out from the surrounding plastic space bar is exaggerated and the power button is placed in the upper right corner. Arrow keys are slightly offset so that it is easy to find them by feel alone. They are smaller than usual, but thankfully they are not all in one line. WASD keys are transparent sides to make their backlighting more important, but there is a lot of bleeding around all the keys, so that does not make any difference.
Asus ROG Strix GL553V Display
Backlighting can be controlled via the ROG Gaming Center app, which has its shortcut key above Nomad. There are four zones, and you can set different colours for each, as well as choose between rhythm and inhalation. Despite the glare slider in the increase of 1 percent, there are only three bright levels, we will not find any way to disable annoying red flashing patterns when the laptop sleeps. We have seen this Asus graphics card, motherboard and desktop PC Display, and we have indicated before the lack of continuity of Asus Display.
We like the fact that the lid of the Strix GL553V is not very flexible, which means there was no distortion on the screen when we tried to bend it and turn it. Hing also felt solid, and the lid did not fret completely while shaking the laptop or covering the lid.
On the left side, you will find a power inlet, Ethernet port, HDMI video output, two USB 3.0 type-A and a Type-C port and a single 3.5mm audio socket. On the right side, there is only one DVD-RW drive, Kensington lock slot and a USB 2.0 port. Speakers and an SD card slot are located below the lips in front of the lower half of the laptop Display, are completely out of sight. The heat sinking feathers visible through the holes on the left, the speaker grill on the front and the same colour as the lid of the rubber feet on the bottom.
The battery has been shut down and there is nothing to see on the floor other than a small sticker with regulatory information and a small Asus Display logo.
Asus ROG Strix GL553V Specifications
This laptop has four forms, which are priced at Rs. 94,990 We are reviewing top-end configuration which is about Rs. 1,36,990 For this money, you get the Intel ‘KB Lake’ Core i7-7700HQ processor, which has four cores with hyper-threading and runs between 2.8GHz and 3.8GHz. The second star in this show has a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti GPU with 4 GB dedicated video RAM
There is also a healthy 16 GB DDR 4 RAM and a 256 GB SATA SSD and 1 TB hard drive. While still there is enough room for media load. The screen is a 1920×1080-pixel IPS panel, which Asus can reproduce 72 percent of NTSC color-magnitude.
For connectivity, Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi AC, and Bluetooth 4.0. All the three USB ports on the left work on 5Gbps. Which means that Type-C ports also do not support USB 3.1 speed. However, it should be convenient over the years.
There is only one HDMI video output – we also like a display port. We are not sure that anyone will ever need to use the 8X DVD-RW drive. But it’s still there. The only thing that you can do is push the fan speed. Which can allow the CPU and the CPU to reduce less aggressively?
One small surprise is that this laptop is not a Pro with Windows 10 Home. This will not make a big difference for many users, but we hope to have Pro at this price level. There are a lot of annoying bloatware, including some software. Which is the cause of repeated intrusion popups? AsusGiftbox is a totally useless app store. With bad navigation and many fake entries, which are just links to websites that open in your default browser.
When we first started our review unit, we were completely defeated by its fans altogether. Nothing is going on completely and even Task Management is not showing any CPU activity, there was a continuous thrill, and if we did anything simpler to open Windows Explorer. Will roam until the roar As soon as we were ready to call Asus and ask that it was normal practice, our use was interrupted by forced BIOS update. A window raised with a big warning signal, saying “1 critical update” and started downloading the data, in this case, we have not given any choice.
The laptop rebooted again and took us into the BIOS. Where the update was implemented. At one point it seemed that nothing was happening, but thankfully we thought that it had crashed. The whole process took about 15 minutes and there was no need to interfere in our part.
But we can not help thinking how the buyer will suddenly react to his system. Not everyone is familiar with the BIOS of a PC, should be careful while lighting it alone. This is a very sensitive process and as a result of any obstruction, it can be permanently briquet machine.
After this, the fans immediately began to behave themselves. They actually became audible when there was actually a demand. But the noise was still very worried. We like the fact that Asus identified this problem and deployed a solution. But we think it could have been handled much better, and no end user should be able to deal with it.
Asus ROG Strix GL553V Performance
With this hiccup behind us, we feel about the Strokes Asus ROG Strix GL553V, all our benchmarks are running, and of course, there are so many games playing. The screen can be very bright, and the viewing angles are good. If the screen was shiny, the colours could have been quite punctured. But we were happy with the choice of a non-reflective finish. 1080p and high-resolution videos looked great.
Streaks are very powerful speakers in Asus ROG Strix GL553V. The sound is loud and clear, but not very rich, it is great for talking about movies and games.
Our Benchmark Test has shown that there is considerable power under the hood, but some results were unpredictable. Cinebench R15 gave us a decent enough 706 in our CPU test but failed to run the GPU-based OpenGL test. POVERA enhanced.
Its benchmark in 4 minutes and 17 seconds, which is almost twice unless properly configured MSI GP62 7RD Leopard Pro PCMK gave us 3956, 4828 and 3431 in our Home, Creative and Work Test, Which were slightly below the score of Leopard Pro. On the other hand, the scores of 2,391 and 3,510 in Tim Spie and Fire Strike Ultra Test of 3D Merck were slightly more than the management of the MSI rival.
In Unijin Valley we are running 43.4 FPS with average, high quality presets in 1920×1080. Star swarm gave us very good 50.27 FPS. We also ran through some artificial benchmark made in the game. The rise of Tomb Raider, using the country’s 1920×1080 resolution of laptops, gave us 53.56 fps at our high presets and 43.64 fps at a very high preset. Concentration ash used to pump 42.8 fps and 30.3 fps using standard and extreme presets, using DirectX 12, respectively.
Asus Upon moving forward on manual run-thresholds. We measured the quality of frames per second as well as the quality of the frame pacing.
Which gives us a picture of how the only performance increases rather than just the display, which masks the excessive variations Can do. We emerged Tomb Raider on our high predetermined and clearly as the graph has been shown, there were large-scale differences in the timing of the frame.
Whereas the average frame rate of 44fps looks sluggish and 22.7 mm Average time is good, the pacing was totally free, while 99th percentile time was about 42.7 min. We ran away to Far Cry 4 on our high preset and found that it has performed very well. The average frame rate was 61fps and the speed was 16.3 millimetres, in which there was a very strict graph showing which only small worms were shown.
Battery life was quite disappointing. We’ve found that this laptop died in less than four hours when it used to be a bit of web surfing, video streaming and general productivity. It lasted longer when we were just running video files, Thanks to the lake’s low-energy video playback capabilities. Our CPU and Graphics-Intensive battery Eater Pro test ran for just 49 minutes.
Asus is one of the companies that sells the entire range of gaming laptops in India, and we have tested many of them in these years. We have seen some practical models and some really unfamiliar people, and it is clear how Asus knows how to reach different types of buyers.
The Rog Streaks Asus ROG Strix GL553V leaves quite familiar and confident Asus brand for some of the more aggressive things. As a product, it shows this with its spatial style and complete lack of cleverness. It is not a laptop that wants to be slim or sleek, even if it is. Everything about it is loud – figuratively and literally
However, if you see yourself as a person who wants to show off such image. Then it may be able to check low-value variants and even some competitive products. The MS7 GP 7 7 DRD Leopard Pro, which we had reviewed some time ago. Has a small SSD and a weak GEFER GTX 1050 GPU, but sells for a significant amount of money. 30,000 less.
