Asus Refreshes G53, G73 Laptops with Nvidia Graphics

Paul Lilly

Asus' G73Jh series notebooks already had the gaming chops for gamers looking for a desktop replacement, which was largely the result of the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5870 graphics chip inside. Fresh out of the factory, however, are new models sporting Nvidia's Fermi-based GTX 460M graphics.

Both the ROG G35JW (15-inch) and G73JW (17-inch) models come with the upgraded graphics with 1.5GB of onboard GDDR5 (the Mobility HD 5870 shipped with 1GB). According to Asus, these are the first machines to sport Nvidia's mobile Fermi part.

Other than the graphics, the specs are mostly the same, including up to an Intel Core i7 820QM processor, up to 8GB of DDR3-1333 memory, up to a 750GB 7200RPM hard drive, Blu-ray options, 8-in-1 memory card reader, 2MP webcam, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and so forth. The new models also ship with a USB 3.0 port, which wasn't included with the previous gen units.
