Today Asus announced the world’s first liquid cooled laptop ‘Republic of Gamers’ (ROG) GX700 in India. Asus ROG GX700 has been priced at Rs. 4,12,990 (Approx $6,141 USD). Asus has also launched the ROG Strix GL502 gaming laptop in India.
ROG GX700 is the world’s first gaming laptop with a detachable liquid-cooling module for extreme overclocking. With the liquid-cooling dock attached, you can overclock GX700 to gaming desktop-like levels of performance. On its own, it packs quite a punch, and easily outperforms other gaming laptops on the market. It even fits snugly in your backpack, so you can dominate LAN parties too.
GX700 is designed to give you a gaming laptop with the overclocking potential to go toe-to-toe with extreme gaming desktops. GX700 features Windows 10 Home, an overclockable Intel Mobile K-SKU processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics, and DDR4 RAM to give you desktop-like power at home and ultra-performance.
The ROG exclusive Hydro Overclocking System gives ROG GX700 superior overclocking performance so you can dominate the battlefield. The cooling module pumps coolant into the GX700, where it is circulated around heat-generating components. The coolant then heads back to the cooling module, where two radiators help to dissipate heat. An ROG-patented connection between the cooling module and GX700 ensures that the coolant flows smoothly between the two without leaking.
The Hydro Overclocking System helps GX700 cope with the heat generated by the overclocked GeForce GTX980 GPU. You can fully unleash the monstrous potential of GX700 for 20% more performance and exceptional stability. On its own, GX700’s dual thermal design can still release the heat generated by the GPU, so you still have beast-mode levels of performance.
The specially-formulated coolant provides corrosion protection for all internal components and materials, including aluminum, iron, steel, and copper alloys. The very low depletion rate of the organic acid inhibitor removes the need for supplementary cavitation erosion protection additives and reduces the maintenance downtime normally required for regular inhibitor tests and additive top-ups to maintain inhibitor concentration. The Hydro Overclocking System helps decrease CPU and GPU temperatures by 31% and 33% respectively.
The Hydro Overclocking System lets you overclock ROG GX700 to new heights. The 3D Mark 11 test scores for ROG GX700’s NVDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics card jumps 43% from 14000 to 20000. The overclockable Intel Mobile K-SKU processor can receive a performance increase of up to 48%, with a BClock boost of around 10%, pushing clock frequencies from 100MHz to 110MHz. In addition, the DDR4 RAM can be boosted by up to 31% from 2,133 MHz to 2,800 MHz to give GX700 incredible desktop-grade gaming performance.
ROG GX700 is the first 17 inch gaming laptop that immerses you in real 4K UHD gaming environments. The Hydro Overclocking System gives GX700 better all-round stability and performance so you can enjoy the latest games the way they’re meant to be played in 4K UHD.
GX700 features a 4K UHD panel and NVIDIA G-SYNC technology to immerse you in smooth, free-flowing 4K gaming worlds. G-SYNC synchronizes the display’s refresh rate to the GPU to give you visuals with no lag, tearing or stuttering, and it does this all without affecting system performance.
GX700 features anti-ghosting with 30 key rollover technology so up to 30 keystrokes can be instantaneously and correctly logged, even when you hit several of them at once. Each key is ergonomically-designed to ensure solid and responsive keystrokes when typing or entering commands making it easy for you to dominate the battlefield and with a new Record key and more macro keys at your disposal, everything you need is at your fingertips.
It has four DDR4 slots to support up to 64 GB DDR4 RAM. 2,133 MHz DDR4 RAM gives you up to 20% more performance and 30% more energy efficiency over 1,600 MHz DDR3 RAM. When paired with the Hydro Overclocking System and overclocked, GX700 gets a boost of up to 2,800 MHz.
GX700 features RAID and the latest NVM Express (NVMe) and PCI Express technologies for superfast data access speeds so in-game visuals are smoothly rendered instantly. Blisteringly-fast data speeds, together with the exceptional cooling performance brought about by the Hydro Overclocking System, let you fully exploit GX700’s full gaming potential.
ROG GX700 features an ESS Sabre headphone DAC and amplifier to give you a sample rate that is eight times greater than CD-quality audio. The ESS Sabre headphone DAC improves sound quality; giving you a high dynamic range (DNR) and less noise for rich 384Hz/32bit sound output. In-game audio sounds richer, with greater detail and less distortion, even when you’re using a headset. In addition, the ESS amplifier adds bass and enhances audio for even clearer detailed sound.
The ROG Gaming Center features Turbo Gear for amazing overclocking. It gives you four different overclocking mode – Standard, Optimized, Extreme, and Manual. Extreme mode lets you overclock GX700 with just one click for hassle-free access to extreme performance for 4K UHD gaming. You also have the option to overclock manually, so you can unlock your own personal achievements. ROG GX700 gives you lifetime access to XSplit Gamecaster. This allows you to easily stream or record gameplay via a convenient, in-game overlay. All you need is a single keystroke to make in-game annotations to highlight what’s happening onscreen. You can also interact with friends and fans by broadcasting on Twitch.
Onboard Intel Thunderbolt technology gives you single-cable data and signal transmission rates of up to 40 Gbits/s – four times the bandwidth of USB 3.1. ROG GX700 gives you both Intel Thunderbolt and USB 3.1 Type-C for increased compatibility with your various devices.
