G751 Not having 120Hz?

Is it correct that the G751 does not have 120Hz screen? It is a shame if the Asus people dont fix this. It has been going on for quite some time now. All the models before in this serie do not have 120Hz screens.

It is basically like having a racecar with a lawn mower engine. I really do not understand why the Asus people do not get a better 120Hz screen. It is not like the cost of a120Hz screen is that much more.

I guess Asus dont think gamers care about things like screen tearing and jearky motion.

I think lots of people are not going to buy this pc because of this considerable issue.

Yes it can do GSync over G751 mDP to PG278Q DP direct. You cannot use HDMI to DP adapter however.

MarshallR, I thought it was supposed to work too, but recently Nvidia took down the G-Sync emblems from all the mobile GPU's; the 980m, 970m, 880m, and removed them from the G-sync compatible GPU list.

Marshall, can you please double check for us?

It's a *very* recent change because Nvidia UK site still lists G-Sync support on its 880M

I am trying to confirm today, but it might take a few days.

Thank you for taking the time to validating this. This will determine me purchasing the PG278Q as an immediate accessory for my G751.

Marshall, the UK site has the G-sync emblem in the 880m/870m/860m/850m pages, but not in the new 970m/980m - and the G-sync supported GPU list lists the 880m/870m/860m/850m, but not the 970m/980m.

Hopefully this is just a site content snafu, and G-sync is supported 🙂

Still anxiously awaiting the answer to this. The PG278Q is hard to source, so it's not a 911 yet, but I want to know so when I get an in-stock notification that I should jump on it.

The engineering sample PG we borrowed didn't work properly so I can't confirm for now sorry. I would assume not until further notice.

Yeah the lack of 120Hz support display really bummed me out. I was so looking forward to the G751 for a 3D, i.e. 120Hz display, and I don't want to spend 2500$ on a G750JH-cv011h (the 120hz version) because it is becoming old. I've been using Asus since my very first computer, Asus N75SF, with which I got into gaming. After reading about the benefits of 120Hz display, i went at a friend's tried it. It is absolutely undeniable that 120hz is superior to 60Hz. Even if the game is able to run at 61fps, the difference is clear . There is no question about that. I'm afraid the only decent option I have for a 120Hz laptop is Alien 17. Too bad 😞

Lightree here is talking about the old G750 having a 120Hz screen (G750JH-cv011h). Will we see this in the new G751? And if so, when is it comming out?

I think most serious gamers will be more interested in this pc. If Asus releases a 120Hz.

Then the remaining IPS lovers can play solitaire on their 60Hz;)

I can confirm that my Asus G751JY-DH72X runs just fine with G-Sync on a Swift PG278q. I got in three of them today to swap out my older PG278H screens and before installing them, I tested one on the Asus ROG laptop. It runs PERFECTLY!



Now I need to eBay my 3 1080p 120z PG278Q this weekend to make back some of the $2400 I just dumped on these three screens.
