ASUS GL553VD overview

  • 1Description

The 15.6" Republic of Gamers Strix GL553VD Notebook from Asus is a powerful system packed with multiple features designed for avid PC gamers. Equipped with a 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7-7700HQ Quad-Core processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card with 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM, the ROG GL553VD can tackle everything from everyday tasks to gaming with demanding visuals. To further increase this system's performance, you can install an additional 16GB RAM module into the empty slot for a max capacity of 32GB.

For storing your photos, videos, games, and more, the ROG GL553VD has a 1TB hard drive. The SD card reader is convenient for transferring files between mobile devices, and there are plenty of connectivity options including USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and USB Type-C. Other integrated features include 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a webcam, HDMI output, and combo audio in/out jack. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Home (64-Bit).

NVIDIA GeForce 10-Series Graphics Card
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards can deliver up to a 40% increase in performance over the previous generation. Not only are they powerful, they can deliver similar performance to their desktop counterparts with a slight performance difference. This changes mobile gaming, allowing you to max out your game's visuals settings so you can enjoy it at its best.
DDR4 RAM
DDR4 memory runs at higher speeds to delivers faster performance compared to its predecessor DDR3. With it, your system will achieve better performance overall.
RGB Aura Keyboard
The Strix GL553VD is equipped with customizable 4-zone lighting so you can adjust it as you see fit. Furthermore, it also features 30-key rollover, which ensures that all your keystrokes are registered no matter how complicated.
ROG Gaming Center
ROG Gaming Center gives you access to multiple features such as system information, macros, audio settings, and more.

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
