Absolute Performance Powered by Leading Components and Technologies

With the G51, ASUS’  engineers have cleverly circumvented the thermal and placement issues that typically arise from fitting the NVIDIA® GeForce™  GTX 260M into a 15-inch form factor, making it the world’s first 15-inch notebook to boast extreme graphics previously only viable on 17-inch notebooks. The ASUS G51 boasts a tremendous 1GB of GDDR3 video memory, which is 30% faster than DDR2. This results in a 3DMark06® score of well over 10,000*—a marked difference from average 15-inch to 16-inch notebooks which typically produce scores between 2,000 and 3,000*. Adding to the visual realism delivered by the G51’s 3D prowess is NVIDIA® PhysX™ Technology which imbues graphics with real-world physics. It also allows users to enjoy instant performance boosts by overclocking their systems through the selection of the ‘Extreme Turbo’ profile via an intuitive user interface.
