Asus ROG GX800 Design and Features

The Asus GX800 is a pioneer in the sense that it is the first laptop to enter the marketplace featuring an incredible 18.4” 4K screen that is well reinforced with the latest G-Sync display technology from Nvidia. In short, it looks like the GX800 is out to become the powerful most gaming laptop in the world.

Liquid Cooling

The Asus GX800 also comes with a detachable liquid-cooling solution as well as provides plenty of frame increase, should you wish to take advantage of all these features. Asus’ Thermo Hydro Clocking lets the entire system tap the power of its Nvidia GTX 980 to its fullest extent to arrive at 1,428MHz frequency without ever overheating. Going even beyond this, the liquid-cooling system lets the other parts of the GX800 gain its optimum potential. Thus the mighty processor is able to get clocked up to a whopping 4.4GHz with the memory maxing out at 2,800MHz.

The New Keyboard

Another added feature of this gaming machine is that it comes with an altogether new mechanical keyboard, that Asus designed right from the basics by means of their patented MechTAG switches, as well as a whole series of RGB LED lights duly embedded. This gives it a mechanical feel. It is in effect a new multicolored keyboard that lets you tweak and customize the keyboard backlight, on a key by key basis. It is also equipped with an anti-ghosting technology in order to prevent your keystrokes from falling along the cracks while you are performing multi-key commands. Since it is an entirely new type of keyboard, the MechTAG keyboard or the Mechanical Tactile Advanced Gaming keyboard is being fine tuned by Asus to make it perfect in every way.

Actually, the Asus ROG GX700 is an advanced and updated version of its predecessor the GX800.This laptop which is considered the best gaming machine ever comes with a dual-GPU together with a powerful unlocked Intel processor. The machine has made bigger and better changes inside with several hardware upgrades. The GX800 is already extremely powerful with its desktop-grade Nvidia GTX 980. As if this is not enough, Asus introduces a second GPU together with Intel Core i7 K processors. This second GPU in essence renders 2 x graphical performance as compared to its predecessor the GX700.

Of course, the Asus ROG GX800 with all its power guzzling, uses up a lot of energy too. In fact this gaming laptop requires two 330 watt power supplies, thus using up about the same amount of energy as any mid-range PC desktop.

Verdict

The Asus ROG GX800 gaming laptop with its liquid cooled design, advanced circuitry, powerful processor and 4K display push the gaming levels to hitherto unreached heights by any portable gaming machine.
