ASUS W90 Notebook Nabs CNET Editors’ Choice Award
ASUS, the world leader in reliable personal computers*, today announced that its W90 notebook has clinched CNET’s coveted Editors’ Choice award. Joshua Goldman, the reviewer, said the multimedia powerhouse delivered “mobile gaming performance [that] is tough to beat”, pointing out that the W90 had “outpaced all other notebooks in the processor-intensive performance tests” he conducted when running in overclocked mode. Most notably, the W90—which had previously set a notebook 3DMark 2006 record with a score of 15,000—managed a blistering161.2 frames per second in Unreal Tournament 3.
Apart from its “desktop-quality gaming performance”, Goldman also lauded the W90’s “ample port assortment” and ease of overclocking, describing the W90 as having a “processor [that] can go from fast to faster in an instant”. The W90’s “massive 18.4-inch wide-screen LCD [which is] perfect for 1080p HD content” was another target of praise. Goldman wrote: “Games and movies look incredible on it and it gets plenty bright for comfortable use regardless of what’s onscreen.” Goldman concluded that the W90 “has everything we expect and more in the features department”.
