What region did you buy yours from? Did you buy it online or locally?
It honestly seems like the quality greatly differs on ROG laptops depending on the region. That should be pure nonsense since they are all manufactured the same way, same parts, same factory (I assume), it's hard to imagine so many are fine with no issues and some come out as Lemons if they are all made under identical standards. That's a shame you can't return it.... does that mean you also effectively have zero warranty even when buying brand new?
Edit - Ive just had a thought, to those who dont experience the stuttering, do you guys play alot of games on your laptop? It doesnt seem to be very prevalent on A title games like the BF series, Battlefront, etc. I have about 310 games on Steam/Origin combined so i do play a large variety of different games. For most of them, the stutter is there.
Truly i say to you, please do not buy an ASUS ROG laptop. Where do i begin? My G752VY is the most unreliable laptop/pc ive ever owned/built since the 1990s.
I'm wondering how in god's name you guys are getting up to 100 degrees C and complaining about throttling? You should be using GPUTweak every time you play ANY game with the fan set to full and if you aren't, well idk what to say. There is no way you are hitting 100C unless you are overclocking far past recommended specs for LONG periods with fans on low. What conditions are you putting it under to reach this heat/throttling state?
