Asus ROG GX800 is a treat for gamers who want to get the most out of their notebook. The GX800 is an upgraded version of the GX700. It features more powerful specifications, and gamers will now have that desktop quality on their notebook as well. Asus considers it “the most powerful gaming laptop”.
This is one of the seven products Asus has launched on Monday, May 30, at Computex 2016. The company takes great pride in its new gaming device, which should turn away game players from their desktop and towards notebooks.
Asus ROG (Republic of Gamers, that is) GX800 comes with a detachable Liquid Cooling Solution, a dual-GPU solution, and a 17.3-inch display in either FHD or 4K display.
The mechanical keyboard with anti-ghosting technology will be highly appreciated by anyone who enjoys gaming. It provides a generous 2.2mm of key travel. You can customize the RGB LED backlighting to your own liking. This means that users can even program different colors for each key.
Its compact dimensions make it ideal for both home or LAN party activities.
It features the newest NVIDIA SLI graphic cards, a powerful unlocked Intel Core i7 processor, and an uprated power supply system that will ensure users a performance boost. The processor is backed up by 1428 MHz GPU and has up to 64 GB of DDR4 2800 MHz DRAM. Asus also brags that the new ROG GX800’s Hydro Overclocking System has scored 29% better than the current gaming laptops out there. Its two 330W power supply adaptors ensure an optimal heat dissipation.
Other notable specifications of ROG GX800 users might want to look into:
- 33-35 mm thick
- 9kg in weight; 4.6kg with dock
- 1920×1080 or 3840×2160 pixels resolution

But this state-of-the-art gaming device doesn’t come cheap. Customers will have to dig deep into their pockets to afford the little gem. Expect to pay around $6,000 to get your hands on the fastest hardware ever in a gaming notebook. The product will hit the stores sometime at the end of August.
