ASUS is continuing to roll out its new line of ROG gaming notebooks, all featuring new Nvidia Pascal graphics cards. We’ve seen a couple of different models so far but the ROG G701VI might be the most impressive yet, packing a GTX 1080 graphics card and a 120Hz G-Sync display for ultra-smooth gaming on the go.
The ROG G701VI is a 17.3-inch gaming notebook, featuring either an Intel Core i7 6700HQ or the unlocked 6820HK depending on how much cash you are willing to spend. It can also be configured with up to 64GB of DDR4 2400MHz RAM, so there is plenty of memory to throw at your Google Chrome tabs.
According to Asus, this also doubles as the world’s first laptop to feature a 120Hz display with G-Sync enabled and thanks to the power of the GTX 1080, you should be able to put that refresh rate to good use. This laptop also comes with connections to hook up three additional monitors for while you are at home, so in all, it’s a pretty solid system all around.
This desktop replacement system also happens to be very thin, measuring in at just 32.5mm thick, which is much thinner than the older ROG G752. There is no word on pricing and availability just yet but expect it to be expensive.
KitGuru Says: I have been looking for a decent laptop to take on the go with me for some time now and while something like this is going to be out of my price range, it is a difficult laptop to ignore, especially with that 1080p 120Hz screen. Are any of you guys looking to pick up an ultra-powerful gaming laptop?
