ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces GX700

Sydney, Australia (8 February, 2016) — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced that the GX700, the world’s first liquid-cooled gaming laptop, will be available in Australia from mid March. The GX700 is powered by the 6th-generation Intel® mobile K-SKU (‘Skylake’) processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ 980 graphics card to give users desktop-grade power at home and ultra-fast performance on the go.

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 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 GX700 ensures the liquid coolant flows smoothly between the two without leaking.

The coolant provides corrosion protection for all internal components and materials, including aluminum, iron, steel, and copper alloys. The low depletion rate of the organic-acid inhibitor removes the need for supplementary cavitation erosion protection additives, reducing the maintenance downtime normally required for regular inhibitor tests and additive top-ups to maintain inhibitor concentration.

Extreme overclocking potential

ROG GX700 is powered by the Intel mobile K-SKU processor and a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics processing unit (GPU). With the ROG Hydro Overclocking System, users can overclock CPU performance by up to 48 per cent, with a BClock boost of around 31 per cent, increasing clock  frequencies from 3.2GHz to 4.0GHz. In addition, the DDR4 RAM can be boosted by up to 43 per cent from 2133MHz to 2800MHz to give GX700 incredible desktop-grade gaming performance.  Integrated NVIDIA G-SYNC display technology synchronises the displays refresh rate to the GPU to minimise frame rate stutter, and eliminates lag and visual tearing to give users the smoothest and fastest gaming visuals possible.

Outstanding performance at home or on the go

With its incredible overclocking potential, desktop-grade NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics, and ROG Hydro Overclocking System, GX700 delivers performance that goes far beyond that on other gaming notebooks, giving gamers a truly mobile platform for extreme gaming. Even when undocked, it is still the world’s fastest single-GPU gaming notebook. GX700 has a thin and lightweight design that makes it ideal for gamers to take to any event where mobility is an advantage, such as LAN parties.

ASUS ROG GX700 will be available from Harvey Norman, selected ASUS Partners and ASUS E-Store for $ 7999. Please contact your local ASUS representative for further information.
