Asus's new GX700 laptop might be able to put many desktops to shame
Every year at IFA, tech companies show off their latest gadgets and devices. New devices are exciting and all but nothing has taken the show floor, yet. This is where Asus new GX700 laptop comes in. We'll dive into specifications later but for now an overall look at this magnificent beauty. Asus GX700 has a new color scheme that does not follow the conventional red and black, instead its now silver and orange-ish red. Asus calls it the Armor Titanium for the silver and Plasma Copper for the accompanying orange accents.
The laptop has a detachable water cooling All-in-One kit located around the back to cool the, to date, unreleased Nvidia GPU. We think its the GeForce GTX990M, the full unlocked GM204 Maxwell core, that has been making waves on the Internet about a month ago. It also will cool the new Skylake CPU. This Skylake chip is rather special, its a K chip on a laptop, Intel Core i7 6820HK. Operating at a base clock of 2.7GHz and Turbo clocks to 3.6GHz.
It has also been spotted housing a massive 64GB of DDR4 RAM. Asus has also stated that the laptop will support NVMe based SSD running at PCIe 3.0 x4 speeds. The laptop sports a 17.3" 4K (3840x2160) IPS display that also has support for Nvidia's GSYNC. Thunderbolt 3 is also present on the computer as well as the usual Asus ROG set of macro keys. The laptop, according to Asus, may hit shelves as early as this year. We are very interested in checking out his beast in person and how it works.
