Asus ROG G703GXR Review: What Can’t This Thing Do!?

I've evaluated a ton of Asus gaming workstations, and keeping in mind that I've enjoyed a great deal of them a reasonable piece, I don't consider anybody them approaches the inclination that the ROG G703GXR evoked inside me. To utilize a buzzword, it resembled all consuming, instant adoration. Be that as it may, at Rs. 3,99,990, the inquiry that emerges is this — does the G703GXR gaming PC offer enough to legitimize that cost, and would it be a good idea for you to think about purchasing this PC? All things considered, that is the choice I'll be helping you make today with my audit of the Asus ROG G703GXR gaming PC.

Plan and Build

The Asus G703GXR is a massive PC, allows simply get that off the beaten path at this moment. It's not the most convenient machine out there, yet with specs like that, you wouldn't anticipate that it should be a slight and light machine at any rate, presently would you?

Keeping that aside, this is a well-planned workstation. Asus has gone with a bending body, which makes it look not so much threatening but rather more alluring than one may anticipate from a monster of a machine like this one. There's a pleasant brushed metal completion on the cover, with stunning looking bronze accents which make the G703GXR look extremely beautiful.

There's a wide determination of ports and there are plentiful spots for the workstation to chill itself off while under escalated outstanding tasks at hand. The G703GXR includes enormous vents on the sides and the back which are really great at keeping the workstation cool while it's running match-ups.

Those great looks carry on when the top is opened, as long as you can pardon Asus for the colossal bezels on this thing. All things considered, the dark of the PC, with silver accents looks pleasant, the console is all around spread out, with the large scale keys on the top rather than the side, which I like, and a trackpad that is huge enough. Furthermore, I additionally truly like the power catch — it's only not quite the same as most different workstations and it looks cool.

All things considered, dispassionately, the cumbersomeness here is unquestionably a negative. All things considered, conveying this workstation is more a task than everything else and that just shouldn't be the situation for PCs. They should be convenient, or at any rate, shouldn't crush your spirit on the off chance that you pull them around in your rucksack.


Anyway, proceeding onward from the structure, we should investigate the showcase here. Aside from the monster bezels that fold over the presentation on the G703GXR, the showcase itself is quite great. It's a major 17-inch FullHD show, which means you get incredible sharpness in expending media substance and games. Printed substance looks somewhat harsh, particularly in case you're sitting near the workstation as you're probably going to do, however something else, it's a consummately decent show.

It accompanies a 144Hz invigorate rate and a 3ms reaction time. Presently I know, 3ms isn't the quickest reaction time on a showcase, yet for a PC, 3ms is strong. Additionally that 144Hz invigorate rate makes for smooth activitys and changes in all cases, and gratitude to Nvidia G-Sync, bolstered games should keep running with insignificant screen-tear and decreased information slack.

Aside from that, the hues look great on this screen, however it's not the most splendid board out there. Additionally, the survey edges are conventional enough, yet brilliance drops actually rapidly once you move past something like a 45-degree edge.

No doubt about it the showcase is a kind of a diverse assortment. I don't generally mind the survey edges much since I don't take a gander at my PC from the sides frequently, yet I would've preferred a more brilliant showcase, and ideally one with more slender bezels.


Coming to things where I have definitely no bad things to say by any means, the G703GXR is a flat out brute with regards to execution. The workstation packs in a ninth gen Core i9 processor, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD + 1TB HDD, and the RTX 2080 GPU. No doubt about it in case you're thinking this workstation just flies through everything, you've essentially summed up this area.

I ran a lot of benchmarks on the workstation, just to get a proportion of the presentation this thing can push, and well, investigate. Here are scores from Geekbench, Cinebench R20, 3DMark Time Spy, and PCMark 10, and they all look great.

PCMark 10

3DMark Time Spy

As far as real, true execution, by and by, the G703GXR doesn't baffle. In Far Cry 5 at 1080p Ultra, the workstation got a most extreme edge pace of 140FPS, averaging at 113FPS which is madly great. Exchanging designs down to 1080p High got a most extreme edge pace of 148FPS and a normal of 119FPS — not quite a bit of an improvement, yet there you have it.

Long ways 5 (1080p High)

PUBG saw a comparable execution on this thing with the PC getting admirably over 125FPS at practically all occasions. There were unexpected drops to around 100FPS when the game rendered smoke, or blasts, however by and large, PUBG runs easily on this at most extreme settings which is incredible.

I additionally played Battlefield since, well, beam following, and by and by, the G703GXR did not baffle. At greatest settings in 1080p with beam following turned on, the PC kept up edge rates well over 60FPS even in exceptional gunfights.

Console and Trackpad

The G703GXR has a full-size console, total with a numpad. Presently I, for one, don't generally utilize a numpad about enough to really need it on a workstation, yet hello, it's not terrible to have it and on a 17-inch PC there's very enough space to fit that in.

What I really acknowledge is the full bolt key design that is available here rather than a conservative bolt key format. Furthermore, the keys have incredible travel also. Of course, at Rs. 3,99,990 I anticipated a mechanical console, however the chiclet console on the G703GXR isn't awful using any and all means.

Composing on this is very fun, and it doesn't get tiring even after extended periods of messing around, or as was all the more regularly occurring with me — composing.

In any case, the reality remains that the G703GXR has a pleasant console that is great to type on, has plentiful travel to not be exhausting but rather still have a material inclination, and since it's not mechanical, it's calm enough as well.

The trackpad too is good on this PC. It's significantly huge, which makes it incredible for motions. Additionally it's a Windows Precision trackpad, so you get a lot of instinctive and simple signals that it underpins which is constantly pleasant. Clicking isn't as pleasant an encounter on this trackpad, even with its committed left-snap and right-click catches, yet that is something I can say for most Windows workstations out there. Generally however, the trackpad on this PC is one of the better ones on gaming workstations.

I/O and Ports

Proceeding onward, the port choice on a PC this thick should be amazing right? Indeed, investigate. There's a USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 port, 3 USB 3.0 Gen-2 ports, a smaller than expected presentation port, and HDMI 2.0a, a RJ-45 ethernet port, a SD card peruser, a 3.5mm earphone jack/mic combo port, a 3.5mm mic port, and a Kensington lock. That is certainly a considerable amount of ports, and you wouldn't generally come up short on alternatives here.

By and by, I just ended up utilizing one USB Type-A port, and the earphone/mic combo port (when I was gaming), and that is it. Regardless of whether you would like to associate your workstation to an extra screen, and possibly an ethernet link, despite everything you'll have a lot of ports on the ROG G703GXR to give you a chance to include more extras should you need them, so it's certainly all that could possibly be needed.


One thing I truly loved about the sound involvement on the Asus ROG G703GXR is the way that it has speakers in that spot in the base bezels of the PC. That implies, the speakers fire directly at your face, and that ought to be truly great. Be that as it may, some way or another, the G703GXR gives a disappointing sound yield. It's not noisy, it's bad at bass, and it's fundamentally just conventional, best case scenario.

That, in any event, is the staggering reaction from a large portion of the Beebom group that heard me while I was playing melodies on the PC to perceive what various kinds of music sound like on this PC. It's bad.

I would call these speakers better than average for gaming, yet of course, the fans are boisterous to the point that they effectively overwhelm the speakers, and most gamers would utilize earphones at any rate, so the speakers don't generally make a difference much in that situation.


What do I at any point say about the battery on this workstation. It was in every case genuinely clear that this workstation wouldn't get anything near a fair battery life what with all the equipment stuffed inside. There's a ninth gen center i9 processor, a RTX 2080 GPU, and those things without anyone else would eat up battery and that appeared in real use of the workstation.

In easygoing use, with light perusing, and a lot of tabs open, the Asus ROG G703GXR kept going some place in the ballpark of 3-4 hours, which genuinely isn't awful for a workstation with specs like this. In any case, it's not extraordinary battery life either, and in the event that you begin gaming, admirably, that drops down to scarcely an hour.

I'm stating that you should convey both the power blocks of this workstation in the event that you expect on gaming with it, and indeed, you read that right, there are two power blocks here. This mammoth of a machine needs the majority of that 560W of intensity contribution to run like spread, and man, does it run like margarine at that point.

Advantages and disadvantages:


First class execution. Simply magnificent.

144Hz, G-match up showcase is incredible

Incredible structure and construct

Agreeable console


Enormous and cumbersome

Poor battery life

Sound execution is terrible
