The all-new ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) GX70, also known as the world’s first liquid-cooled gaming laptop is definitely built for hardcore gamers. Protected by a luggage case with custom molded cushioned foam, the literally “heavy weight champion” ASUS ROG GX700 system consists of a 3.8kg laptop and a 4.8kg docking station called ROG Hydro Overclocking System.
The exclusive ROG Hydro Overclocking System gives ROG GX700 superior overclocking performance for unrivaled gaming power. It uses a pump to circulate coolant around heat-generating components inside the ROG GX700. The liquid coolant then heads back into the cooling module where two radiators help to dissipate heat. The ROG-patented connection between the cooling module and ROG GX700 ensures that the liquid coolant flows smoothly between the two components without leaking.
The coolant used provides corrosion protection for all internal components and materials, including aluminium, 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.
Powered by the latest Intel Core K-SKU processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics card, the ROG GX700 comes with the ROG Hydro Overclocking System, which allows users to overclock the processor performance by up to 48%, with a BClock boost of around 31%, increasing clock frequencies from 3.2GHz to 4.0GHz. In addition, the DDR4 RAM can be boosted by up to 43% from 2,133MHz to 2,800MHz to give the 17-inch laptop incredible desktop-grade gaming performance.
Equipped with two 2W speakers and two 1.5W speakers to produce both high and low frequency sounds for an immersive gameplay with surround sound experience. The ROG GX700 also comes with lifetime XSPLIT Gamecaster account for you to stream and record your epic gameplay with gamers around the world.
The ROG GX700 will be available in Singapore at S$6,198 from ASUS brand stores and selected ASUS authorised retailers.
