ASUS has unveiled a new gaming notebook at CES 2019 this month building on the previously launched Zephyrus range and introducing the new ASUS Zephyrus GX701 sporting a 17 inch display and powered by 8th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU supported by up to 24GB of DDR4 RAM and GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q Design graphics processor and a choice of displays offering 144Hz/3ms panels with HDR or Pantone validation. ASUS has also included a ROG-exclusive GPU switch that enables users to change between G-SYNC for gaming and Optimus for battery life.
“Immersing yourself in a larger display usually means lugging a larger laptop, but slim bezels and smart design make ROG Zephyrus S the smallest in its class. Easily carry it around town or across the world thanks to compact dimensions that put a 17-inch display in a 15-inch form factor. The sleek magnesium-alloy body fits inside standard bags and is strong enough to stand up to everyday life.”
“Slender bezels frame one of two IPS-level panels. ROG is first to offer HDR gaming laptops, enabling AAA titles with richer colors, brilliant whites, and deeper blacks via local dimming. The SDR alternative gives content creators accurate, Pantone Validated colors with factory calibration and ProArt TruColor Technology. Both boast silky smooth 144Hz refresh rates with blur-free 3ms response times.”
