PC maker Asus has rolled out under its Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand the GX800, which is said to be one of the most powerful gaming laptops in the world today.
The ROG GX800 is a scion of the GX700, which set the gaming community ablaze during its launch, thanks to the world’s first liquid-cooled gaming dock.
ROG refined the elements of its flagship gaming laptop, resulting in the GX800 housing the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 and Intel K-series CPU.
Asus said the GX800’s performance is akin to a powerful desktop with its two 330W power adapters that delivers a no-nonsense gaming experience.
In addition, it also has an optional upgraded liquid-cooled docking station to enable extreme overclocking of the CPU, GPU, and DRAM. The combination complements GX800s 4K UHD visuals.
It also has a plug-and-play compatibility with virtual reality headsets that offers a fully-immersive VR environment. The 18-inch ROG GX800 is the world’s first gaming laptop to provide real 4K UHD gameplay with NVIDIA G-SYNC Technology.
The Hydro Overclocking System gives ROG GX800 superior cooling for real 4K UHD gaming. When compared with gaming laptops featuring a single GPU, ROG GX800 gives users the double the frame rate and more detailed visuals for truly immersive gaming, even at ultra-settings.
The GX800 also has the thinnest mechanical keyboard with RGB LED and anti-ghost tech for each key:
The GX800’s capacity for superior overclocking performance pushes the Intel K-series CPU overclocking possibilities to 4.4GHz and beyond.
Meanwhile its graphic cards can be overclocked to 1961MHz while the VRAM and DRAM can reach up to 5200MHz and 2800MHz respectively.
The GX800 is equipped with the MechTAG keyboard that provides mechanical switches with a positive clicking action and a 2.5mm of key travel for solid and responsive keystrokes. It also has an AURA RGB backlight effects that can be assigned for individual keys allowing gamers to see what they only need to see.
Its anti-ghosting technology allows 30 keys to be pressed simultaneously. It also sports a Thunderbolt 3 for up to 40GB/s transfer rate, wireless 802.11 AC with an external antenna, a high-end ESS SABRE headphone DAC and amplifier.
ROG GX800 comes with a bundled backpack. In addition, the specially-designed ROG Command Case features foam liners to protect the gaming kit from bumps and knocks during transport.
