The famous Taiwanese manufacturer ASUS has introduced two new laptops that belong to the Republic of Gamers (ROG) series and of course are aimed at gamers.

Coming to us under the G75VW and G55VW names the novelties are powered by Intel’s Core i7-3720QM processor at 2.6 GHz. The CPU also features 6 MB of L3 cache and can overclock itself to 3.6 GHz in single core use, 3500 MHz in dual-core use and 3400 MHz when three or four cores work at 100%. Moreover the i7-3720QM comes with HyperThreading technology so the CPU can manipulate eight threads at once if needed. ASUS also offers the cheaper i7-3610QM processor for these laptops.
