View Full Version : ROG GX700 - Unrivaled Cooling, Extreme Performance

08-09-2016, 06:10 AM
The ROG GX700 raises portable gaming to the next Level.
Everything about GX700 screams overkill—something a mad scientist might have put together in his secret lab.
And the effects are genius!

The GX700 specs read like the recipe for a jaw-dropping desktop PC. A gorgeous 4K IPS NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ display and the latest and greatest CPU and GPU, water-cooled and overclocked to the max, with 64GB of DDR4—enough to easily run a RAM disk and 1TB of lightning fast PCI-e NVMe SSD storage running in RAID 0.

Yet this is a notebook! —The fastest, coolest, and slimmest GTX 980 notebook on the market!

The concept behind the GX700 is a modular design, similar to the ASUS Transformer series. There is no denying that we live in a mobile world, and for most of us a notebook is simply a must. A desktop at home and a notebook for portability works fine, but using a single system and having all your files with you, always, anywhere, anytime, is the ultimate experience.

As a result, desktop replacements have been around for ages, but they were often strange creatures caught between two worlds: Not quite fast enough to replace a desktop, and not quite mobile enough to carry around. By adding an external water-cooling dock, we managed to reach new milestones in both mobile and stationary modes.

As a Notebook
All by itself the GX700 is the slimmest GTX 980 notebook available, and it is very close to being the lightest, weighing a good kilo/2 lbs. less than traditional desktop replacement notebooks.
It also comes with a relatively light 180W adapter, while others come with a bulky and heavy 230W or even 330W adapter.

As a Desktop
This is where the GX700 spreads its wings and turns into a true desktop replacement. The GX700 puts many desktops to shame with its 4GHz Skylake Core i7 (64GB DDR4 2800MHz) and a GTX 980, overclocked to 980Ti performance levels, and 1TB of RAID 0 NVMe SSD storage.

As a Portable Workstation/Gaming Desktop
Whenever you travel and need a really powerful workstation or gaming desktop with you, simply strap the GX700 and its docking into the bundled suitcase. Whether it’s an event, a weekend gathering, a business trip or a vacation, you’ll have all the performance you need wherever you go.
