- World's first liquid cooled laptop launched
- League of Legends tournament coming soon
ASUS has announced the GX700, the world’s first liquid cooled gaming laptop, featuring the Hydro Overclocking System. The Republic of Gamers (ROG) branded launch event in Kuala Lumpur also saw the debut of the GT51CA desktop PC.
In commemoration of the brand's 10th anniversary, the company also announced the ROG Champions Cup League of Legends tournament with Garena, scheduled for later this year.
The GX700 is powered by the 6th-generation Intel mobile Skylake processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 graphics card. The GX700 gaming laptop also features integrated Nvidia G-SYNC display technology.
The ROG Hydro Overclocking System uses a pump to circulate coolant around heat-generating components inside GX700. The liquid coolant then heads back into the cooling module where two radiators help to dissipate heat.
The connection between the cooling module and GX700 ensures that the liquid coolant flows smoothly between the two without leaking.
The coolant used provides corrosion protection for all internal components and materials, including aluminium, 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.
Users can overclock CPU 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 2133MHz to 2800MHz.
The GX700 will be available for a measly RM18,999. Yes, that number is correct.
