Asus ROG GT51 performance
Since this is using GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, gaming performance will be awesome, even on a 4K resolution monitor. The thermal liquid cooling system helps keep the core temperature cooler up to 31% enabling gamers to play without any performance issues. There is a fan on the front bottom that will suck in cool air.
I ran 3D Mark 11 benchmark and got the score of 20173. The Furmark benchmark temperature was Minimum 67 degrees and max 85 degrees.
Overall performance was impressive, Desktop operational sound was less and it can play many high end games.
Gaming Laptops or Gaming Desktops are pricey cause of the cooling technology that they are using. The Asus ROG GT51 is good no issues with performance, the only thing is the size and price – of Rs. 3,25,000.
Now you can assemble a gaming desktop and get in the powerful hardware including GTX 1080 GPU, however the cooling system is something you will need to work on. For normal user it will make no difference but for hardcore gaming users the system needs to perform at max level all the time.
