Moving away from the matte black design of the ROG notebooks, the ROG GX700 has an aggressive design and sports the new ROG Armor Titanium and Plasma Copper colour scheme. Its new Armor Titanium and Plasma Copper colour scheme has been specially chosen to enhance its modern, angular lines.

The exclusive ROG Hydro Overclocking System gives ROG GX700 superior overclocking performance for unrivaled gaming power. It uses a pump to circulate coolant around heat-generating components insidethe ROG GX700. The liquid coolant then heads back into the cooling module where two radiators help to dissipate heat. The ROG-patented connection between the cooling module and ROG GX700 ensures that the liquid coolant flows smoothly between the two components without leaking.

The coolant used provides corrosion protection for all internal components and materials, including aluminum, iron, steel, and copper alloys. The very low depletion rate of the organic-acid inhibitor removes the need for supplementary cavitation erosion protection additives, and reduces the maintenance downtime normally required for regular inhibitor tests and additive top-ups to maintain inhibitor concentration.

Extreme Overclocking Potential Intel® Core™ K-SKU processor

Powered by the latest Intel® Core™ K-SKU processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980 graphics card, the ROG GX700 comes with the ROG Hydro Overclocking System, which allows users to overclock the processor performance by up to 48%, with a BClock boost of around 31%, increasing clock frequencies from 3.2GHz to 4.0GHz. In addition, the DDR4 RAM can be boosted by up to 43% from 2,133MHz to 2,800MHz to give the 17-inch laptop incredible desktop-grade gaming performance.

Furthermore, the integrated NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ display technology synchronises the display refresh rate to the graphic processor to minimise frame rate stutter, and eliminates lag and visual tearing to give users the smoothest and fastest gaming visuals possible.

Outstanding Performance At Home or On-the-Go

With its incredible overclocking potential, desktop-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980 graphics, and ROG Hydro Overclocking System, the ROG GX700 delivers performance that goes far beyond that on other gaming notebooks, providing gamers a platform for extreme gaming. Even when undocked, it is still the world’s fastest single-GPU gaming notebook. The ROG GX700 has a thin and lightweight design that makes it ideal for gamers to take to any event where mobility is an advantage.
