Taiwan-based Asus announced the launch of world’s first liquid-cooled laptop in India, the ROG GX700, priced at Rs. 4,12,990. The company also launched its gaming laptop the ROG Strix GL502 in India.
On Wednesday a new laptop was introduced in the Asus’s Republic of Gamers lineup of gaming laptops, the ROG GX700 comes with a detachable ROG-exclusive Hydro Overclocking System cooling module that has dual 92mm radiators the company says are capable of dissipating over 500W of heat. It is bundled with ROG-themed suitcase to lug it around. One can choose to use the traditional cooling system if they want, without the overclocking module but it wont make any sense to use the GX700 without it.
Powered by a sixth generation Intel ‘Skylake’ Core i7-6820HK processor clocked at 2.7GHz (can be overclocked upto 3.6GHz) comes with 16GB of DDR4 RAM expandable up to 64GB. Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 GPU with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM completes the graphics need.
Asus India said the Hydro Overclocking System not just provides unmatched cooling capabilities to ROG GX700 but also opens up the possibility of superior overclocking. The CPU can be overclocked up to 48 percent and the DDR4 memory can be overclocked by up to 43 percent. The ROG GX700 gaming laptop features a 17.3-inch 4K UHD (3840×2160 pixel) monitor with Nvidia G-Sync technology.
One can obtain it through a request on Asus India site for a price of Rs. 4,12,990 and limited stock is available as the company warned.
As we said earlier the company also launched the ROG Strix GL502 laptop in India at a price of Rs. 1,29,990.
It is a compact 15.6-inch gaming laptop with a 4K display, equipped with the latest quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, paired with 8GB of DDR4 memory and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M GPU.
All of this comes in a lightweight, ultra-portable design. The notebook is available for sale across all Asus channels and Exclusive Stores.
