ASUS launches world’s first liquid-cooled gaming laptop

GX700 features Republic of Gamers-exclusive Hydro Overclocking System

ASUS has released the world’s first liquid-cooled gaming laptop, under its gaming division Republic of Gamers (ROG).

The GX700 is set to hit Australian stores in mid-March and boasts an Intel mobile Skylake i7-6820HK processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics card. It also has two 256 m.2 drives running in a RAID 0 configuration.

The new ROG unit’s specs put it in line with other high-end gaming laptops but the addition of liquid cooling and an ROG Hydro Overclocking System is what sets it apart, according to ASUS.

The company said the overclocking system allows the GX700 to increase CPU performance by up to 48 per cent, with a clock boost of around 31 per cent, increasing clock frequencies from 3.2GHz to 4.0GHz.

The unit’s 32GB of DDR4 RAM (upgradable to 64GB) can be also boosted by up to 43 per cent from 2133MHz to 2800MHz. It also features a 17.3 inch LED-backlit Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display; two 256GB M.2 solid state drives running in RAID 0, an 8-cell lithium ion battery,

The GX7000 also includes NVIDIA G-SYNC display technology that synchronises the display's refresh rate to the graphics card to minimise frame rate stutter, and eliminate lag and visual tearing.

The unit is set to retail for $7999, and will be available from the ASUS online store, Harvey Norman and other selected outlets.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
