Last year, ASUS shocked the industry with its unveiling of the world’s first liquid-cooled gaming laptop, the ROG GX700, but the company was only able to bring 20 units of the monster laptop to the country. But this year, the company is giving more gamers in the Philippines the chance to own one of its liquid-cooled gaming laptops as it officially launches its next-generation liquid-cooled gaming laptop – the ROG GX800.
“As a next step to our commitment to excite gamers around the Philippines, ASUS Republic Of Gamers (ROG) will take the next generation of gaming laptops and PCs to the local markets this year,” said Joey Nocom, ASUS Philippines Product Manager for Consumer Notebooks. “We aim to provide gamers and gaming enthusiasts worldwide with the ultimate gaming and computing experience because our goal is to continuously reign in the local gaming market and ensure dominance this 2017.”
For its next-generation liquid-cooled gaming laptop, ASUS has not only upgraded its slew of internal specifications such as its processor and graphics cards, it has also equipped the GX800 with an industry-first 18.4-inch 4K UHD resolution display with NVIDIA G-Sync as well as a MechTAG keyboard with compact mechanical switches that feature a “positive clicking action”, a key travel of only 2.5mm, and ASUS Aura Sync RGB LED backlighting.
ASUS has powered the GX800 with a 7th-generation Intel Core i7-7820HK 2.7GHZ processor, 64GB of DDR4 RAM, and two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards in SLI. For storage, the GX800 is equipped with three 512GB M.2 SSDs adding up to 1.5 terabytes of SSD storage. As for connectivity, the GX800 features 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, an HDMI 2.0 port, a DisplayPort 1.2, three USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.1 Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone and microphone ports, and an RJ45 Gigabit LAN port.
Lastly, the ROG GX800 comes with the new and improved GX800VH Liquid-Cooling Dock, a 74WHrs 8-cell Li-ion battery, two 330W power adapters, an ROG Sica mouse, an ROG GX800 suitcase, and an ROG backpack.
