Republic of Gamers G74Sx

The Republic is due to get a 2011 care package for the popular, G Series gaming laptops. The RoG G74Sx has been upgraded with the latest Intel ‘Huron River’ platform that features either a second generation Intel Core i5 or i7 CPU and the latest Nvidia GeForce GTX 560M graphics all packed into another, thoroughly unique chassis.

New ASUS Republic of Gamers G74 laptop

Go 3D

Combined with a 120Hz, 17-inch display, the inclusion of Nvidia graphics also means Nvidia 3D-Vision is included as standard too, while  Blu-ray 3D movies can be played on your HDTV via the included HDMI 1.4 port on the side.

ASUS also highlights that despite the cutting edge kit, the laptop should remain cool at all times thanks to its unique thermal design that draws cool air in from the front, through the laptop and out the back. We previously covered this innovative design style here on TiS if you want to check it out in more detail.

Design tweaks for LAN gamers

The G74Sx design should also appeal to upgraders too as there is a quick access hatch to the two internal hard drive bays, while the internal memory slots can support up to 16GB of memory. On the top side, gamers should benefit from the backlit keyboard in poorly-lit LAN tournaments – although you shouldn’t need to look! – and the separated keyboard, number pad and cursor key cluster means it’s more like a PC than a laptop, which means you can keep more of your native gaming edge rather than relearning muscle movements.

This gaming powerhouse is currently making its début at CeBIT, so keep an eye out for reports from the show floor! We’re hoping to get our hands on one as soon as we can.
