ASUS ‘Republic of Gamers’ has announced their launch of the world’s first liquid-cooled gaming laptop, the ASUS ROG GX700. The premium flagship laptop comes with a detachable ROG-exclusive Hydro Overclocking System cooling module.
There is a 17-inch real 4K UHD display with NVIDIA G-SYNC for smooth, stunning visuals. For this too, the laptop is said to be the world’s first having this combination of display and G-SYNC. Internally, the laptop is powered by 6th-generation Intel Mobile K-SKU (Skylake) processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics card.
Having a dedicated liquid-cooling system not just helps keep the temperature in check but it also helps in overclocking the CPU. The CPU can be overclocked by up to 48% and the 64GB DDR4 memory can be overclocked by up to 43%.
As for the liquid cooling system, the ROG GX700 has liquid-cooling dock based on a custom self-sealing valve design, along with a pump and dual 92mm radiators capable of dissipating over 500W of heat. It is not a compulsion to always use the liquid-cooling dock and one can take advantage of the traditional cooling system packed into the laptop if the dock isn’t needed all the time.
