Introducing the ROG Strix GL553
Strike the balance between gaming firepower and practical portability with the ROG Strix GL553 gaming laptop, featuring the latest 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processor and GTX 1050 graphics to give you powerful performance and flawless gaming visuals.
ROG STRIX GL553 has been newly redesigned for 2017 with a sleek and aggressive styling on the chassis and an ROG Aura Keyboard. ROG Strix GL553 comes with Windows 10 Home pre-installed and Microsoft® DirectX® 12 support.
Next-Generation Processor and Graphics
ROG STRIX GL553 is equipped with future-proofed features, including a 7th-Generation (Kaby Lake) Core i7 processor and latest GTX 1050 graphics for stunning gaming performance and high frame rates.
The GTX 1050's superior performance and power efficiency over previous generation GPUs lets you play nearly all classic and modern games at 1080p at 60 FPS and beyond.
Breathtaking Wideview Display
ROG Strix GL553 features a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS-like panel with wide 178° viewing angles. The panel ensures great contrast and color consistency, and there's no color shift even when you're viewing it from extreme positions.
It ensures superior clarity during gameplay with unbelievable color accuracy and deep and rich contrast. It has a matte finish too, so there's no glare or reflections to distract you during gaming.
2x2 WiFi for Improved Stability and Bandwidth
ROG GL553 is equipped with Intel 2x2 802.11ac WiFi that supports all current WiFi standards with up to 6x faster performance than 802.11bgn WiFi. It employs 2 antennas that support 2 data streams with the 802.11ac band delivering speeds up to 867Mbps!
This ensures proper range and stability for reduced ping and improved connection quality for your online games. Prefer to play using an ethernet cable? GL553 also has an RJ45 LAN jack for that!
RGB Aura Keyboard Built for Gaming
Light up your gaming experience with the ROG Aura RGB keyboard. Usually, laptops at this value are rare to find with full RGB keys. But the Strix GL553 is equipped with 4-zone customizable lighting to dramatically enhance your gaming experience.
GL553's keyboard offers you 2.5mm of travel distance, a far greater distance than most gaming laptops. This provides both a superior tactile feel as well as improved typing accuracy with a more familiar feel to mechanical gaming keyboards. 30 N-Key Rollover ensures that all your keystrokes will register, even when hitting multiple keys simultaneously.
The reversible USB Type-C port gives you easier device connections and hyper-fast data transfer speeds. It also features 2x USB 3.0 ports, 1x USB 2.0 port, 1x RJ45 LAN port, and 1x HDMI port - all the connections you need for gaming peripherals and an external display.
Extraordinary Performance Gains
The GL553's GTX 1050 is a quantum leap in performance compared to previous generation GPUs. Compared to the GTX 950M, the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 have over 2x the framerate performance while playing AAA titles at 1080P!
This ensures that gamers will have a gaming system that's capable of pushing the boundaries of gameplay.
