You may haven’t heard of it but, this thing has simmilar hardware & even design aesthetics match upto 90% with the ROG GL553. Let’s have a look at the Specifications of the FX553VD,

  • Display: 15.6″ (1920×1080) 60Hz Anti-Glare Panel with 45% NTSC
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 7700HQ
  • Chipset: Intel® HM175 Express
  • RAM: 8GB (Upto 32GB Supported)
  • ROM: 1TB HDD @7200 RPM
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 , with 2GB GDDR5 VRAM
  • I/O: 1 x Type A USB3.0 (USB3.1 GEN1), 2 x Type A USB3.0 (USB3.1 GEN1), 1 x USB 2.0 port(s), 1 x RJ45 LAN Jack for LAN insert, 1 x HDMI

So, the main difference seems to be that, the FX553VD has 2 Gigs of VRAM instead of having 4 Gigs of VRAM like the GL553VD. But, there is actually more to it. The screen is also different. Though both devices have a 15.6 inch 1080P display, the NTSC color gamut is actually 72% on the GL553VD while the screen on FX553VD is having 45% NTSC.

    Today, I saw a version of FX553vd, ie. FX553VD-DM628 on Amazon, Flipkart, and Paytm. The specs are same as that specified above, but it has a 4GB GTX 1050 and a 128GB SSD. The price is arount 80k in flipkart and paytm and 84k in amazon. When we compare it with gl553vd, the only difference is the RGB lit keyboard (in a gamer’s view) and Windows 10. I got the price of GL553vd as 87k from a retailer.
    here, if you opt for a non genuine win10, you get a 128GB SSD if you pay 7k lesser. and even if you buy a win10, the deal is great in the case of FX553VD.

    (The above dm628 version specs are not shown in Asus india website. Don’t know whether this model is available with a retailer.)

    which one would you buy????
