Launching with Computex this week, ASUS has a set of three new ROG (Republic of Gamers) notebooks for potential mobile gamers to take a look at. First up is the G751JT and G751JY machines that feature Intel Core i7 processors (likely Haswell) and GeForce GTX 980M discrete graphics. After the recent announcement of G-Sync for notebooks, it should be no surprise that this updated G751 will feature an impressive 75 Hz 1920×1080 screen that supports variable refresh gaming!

For those more interested in a thin-and-light gaming machine, ASUS has the ROG G501. This will be available with either 2560×1440 or 3840×2160 resolution displays and will feature Intel Core i7 processors, again without specification on if that is Haswell or Broadwell based. ASUS claims that the G501 "features dual independent fans and copper heat sinks to ensure efficient thermal management for smooth and stable performance even at high loads."

Finally, the ROG GL552 looks to be a more standard gaming rig with a Haswell-based Intel processor, non-descript "discrete graphics" and an "optional" solid state drive. The GL552 will feature an "easy-access design for additional storage and memory upgrades."

Look for more details on these notebooks and hopefully reviews very soon!
I don’t understand this, my
I don’t understand this, my G751jy already has a 75hz 1080p panel (i bought it in november last year). Sooo…what is the upgrade in the “new model”. Or if this is a misunderstanding, will I be able to use g-sync on my current g751jy?
Interesting questions…we are looking into it!
Any more information?

I too have the G751JY. Asus
I too have the G751JY. Asus already made a new bios (v207) thay should support G-Sync. Hopefully they will make G-Sync available to the current buyesr of the G751v too
Yes I saw the new BIOS but
Yes I saw the new BIOS but they quickly renamed it to EC Firmware, not too promising. But it would be such a same if they simply won’t allow it for the current gen. This hardware is quite expensive…and to simply role out a new model with the same model number and the same hardware, with this “update”?! I cannot possibly believe they will go forward with this, and ask current owners to buy the same laptop again. What makes me mad is, this speculation is going on on several forums for 2 days, and nobody from Asus said a straight thing about this…we shall see :S
