ASUS announces another gaming notebook

The Republic of Gamers (ROG) division of ASUS has announced a new gaming notebook almost immediately after the announcement of the ASUS ROG G501. The new ROG gaming notebook is called GL552 and sports really fast hardware, a nicely-looking chassis and likely a high price.

The tech specs of the GL552 largely resemble the specs of the G501 – the GL552 is powered by an Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor with four cores at 2.6 GHz (3.6 GHz Turbo) and offers a 15.6-inch IPS display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) or a 15.6-inch TN display at 1366 x 768 pixels, up to 16 GB of DDR3L memory in dual-channeled mode, up to 2 TB of hard drive space or a 128/256 GB M.2 SSD, an ASUS SonicMaster audio system, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a really nice low profile red-backlit keyboard with highlighted WASD keys. The notebook also uses the GameFirst III technology, which makes online gaming a priority when using a network. All is good but here we may have to disappoint some mobile gamers – the GL552 is powered by an external GeForce GTX 950M graphics card with 4 GB of GDDR3 memory, unlike the G501, which has the more powerful GTX 960M video card.

The ASUS ROG GL552 measures 385 x 255 x 32.4 mm and weighs 2.5 kilograms. No word on pricing as of now.
