HWM (Malaysia) - - THINK -

It’s not of­ten that we see some­thing com­pletely new and bonkers, so imag­ine our ex­cite­ment when the new ASUS ROG GX700 notebook rolled up at IFA 2015. Its ROG line is all about the ab­so­lute cut­ting-edge of tech­nol­ogy and the new ROG GX700 lives up its name be­cause it is the world’s first liq­uid-cooled notebook.

The liq­uid-cool­ing mod­ule is de­tach­able, so you do not need it to work. And when de­tached, the ROG GX700 be­comes a some­what por­ta­ble 17-inch gam­ing notebook. How­ever, hard­core gamers would cer­tainly want that liq­uid-cool­ing mod­ule be­cause ASUS claims that it can boost per­for­mance by as much as 80 per­cent.

Other de­tails that we know now is the 17-inch dis­play will sup­port 4K res­o­lu­tion and that the ma­chine is pow­ered by a high-end In­tel Core i7-6820HK pro­ces­sor and a new mo­bile and yet-to-be-an­nounced mo­bile GPU by NVIDIA that fea­tures 2,048 cores. By com­par­i­son, the cur­rent flag­ship mo­bile GPU, the GeForce GTX 980M, has 1,536 cores. Looks like the ROG GX700 will be an ab­so­lute beast.
