Asus ROG GX700 review

 

Insane laptop power with a price tag to match

Incredible performance ; VR gaming on a laptop ; Awesome design ; Fun to use

Absurd price ; Only 1080p display ; Have to return to Asus to replace coolant

The first liquid-cooled laptop is a stylish and incredibly powerful machine - especially once it's connected to its water-cooling base station. It's absurdly expensive, however, and is held back by its Full HD display.

Asus ROG GX700

 

Currently, there are only six of these machines in the UK – five are on sale and one is being shipped around reviewers. This is probably the most exclusive laptop you'll find from a major manufacturer, and likely the most powerful, too. And the...

Asus Republic Of Gamers GX700VO Watercooled Gaming Laptop

 

The Asus Republic Of Gamers GX700 is the world's first liquid cooled production laptop. We're only using the word ‘production' as you know there will be a modder out there saying ‘Nope, I liquid cooled mine years ago.' So, ROG GX700 is a gaming laptop...

Epic gaming performance from Core i7 and desktop GTX 980.

Ideally the laptop would overclock automatically when the dock is engaged.

Asus ROG GX700 tears up the rule book and sets a new standard for gaming laptops.

Asus GX700 Notebook Review

 

Bring in the water! While water-cooled desktop systems are not uncommon, most notebook models are exclusively cooled by air. Asus still takes this step and presents the GX700, a combination of high-end laptop and external water-cooling. As one of the...

desktop-level performance, GTX 980 with full Turbo, high-contrast IPS panel, USB 3.1 & Thunderbolt, overclocked processor, up to 64 GB DDR4-RAM, pretty cool hardware, interesting tools, large touchpad, nice design, good sound, macro keys, SSD-RAID

build quality issues with our pre-production sample, Wi-Fi range could be better, extremely heavy with water-cooling, suboptimal port layout, bottom of the chassis susceptible to scratches, somewhat spongy keyboard, enormous power consumption, Hydro...

The GX700 leaves pretty mixed impressions after we finished all tests. The idea to use a water-cooling sounds very promising on paper, but we can hardly find any advantages over a standard air-cooled laptop in practice. Yes, the notebook is thinner and...

The ASUS ROG GX700 is a water-cooled gaming laptop with primo graphics power (hands-on)

 

Every year, gaming laptops get more powerful--but never powerful enough to satisfy the demands of the most discerning gamers. Even the most muscular mobile graphics processors can't play the newest games on the highest levels of detail on 4K monitors....

You can be sure we'll have a full review on CNET when the GX700 is available.

Asus ROG GX700 review

 

Stay Frosty Oscar Mike!

Overclocked CPU ; Design ; Build ; Thunderbolt / USB 3.1 ; 64GB DDR4-RAM ; M.2 SSDs

Price ; Soft Keyboard ; Slipped disc-inducing heavy ; Battery life ; Bottom plastic panel ; Maintenance ; Susceptible to liquid damage

The price and performance, unfortunately, don’t quite match up. Buy it purely for the innovative tech Asus has clocked in, or simply for bragging rights.

Asus ROG GX700 Review

 

Unparalleled performance Gives buyers undisputed bragging rights

Absurdly expensive Huge and heavy Underwhelming keyboard, trackpad and speakers Launched in India almost a year late

Overall, this isn't a bad laptop, but it does leave us with a dilemma. The only way you're going to get the most out of it would be to use it docked on a desk, where it isn't all that comfortable. When used as a laptop, you aren't getting all the...
