ASUS has officially launched the ROG Zephyrus S GX701 gaming laptop in the Philippines, with three variants available – the GX701GV, the GX701GW, and the GX701GX. Dubbed as the company’s most compact 17-inch gaming laptop, the Zephyrus S GX701 was initially unveiled at CES 2019 earlier this year.
All three models of the GX701 are equipped with a 17.3-inch AVHA display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, 144Hz refresh rate, 3ms response time, G-Sync and Optimus support, and a Pantone validated 100% sRGB color gamut. While the GX701 features a 17.3-inch display, its chassis is more akin to that of a 15-inch laptop due to its minimal bezels, measuring only 39.9 x 27.2 x 1.87 cm and weighing only 2.7kg.
On the inside, the GX701 is powered by an Intel Core i7-8750H, up to 24GB of DDR4 2666MHz RAM, up to 1TB of M.2 NVMe storage, and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 MaxQ. The new laptop also features an improved version of the company’s ROG Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) which features, among other things, self-cleaning 12v fans, quad heatsinks, and five cooling pipes. The GX701’s keyboard now also comes with full per-key RGB lighting that’s compatible with the company’s Aura Sync technology.
The ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX701 will come with an ROG backpack as well as an ROG Gladius II gaming mouse. It will be available for pre-order from March 1-10, 2019, at participating ROG concept stores. Additionally, those who pre-order the top-end variant, the GX701GX, will also get more bundled items worth PHP 17,000.
