While it’s always good to practice moderation (think of the saying “too much of a good thing”), that’s definitely not the case when it comes to PC specs. After all “more is better,” right?
But, laptop parts can be expensive, and if your budget doesn’t allow you to customize to your liking, it can be easy to hit your limits.
But, “None of that matters!” says the most powerful gaming laptop ever.
Its name is ROG Mothership GZ700GX. With powerful specs and price over 9000US dollars.
Highest Performance in the World
The ROG Mothership GZ700GX is claiming to be “the highest performing gaming laptop in the world”. You’ll be amazed just by looking at the configuration of the system.
The system contains an Octa-core 16 thread Intel Core i9-9980HK Processor with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX ™ 2080 graphics, 64GB of memory, 3 units of solid-state 512GB RAID 0 NVMe drives connected with PCIe 3.0 x4, 17.3-inch 4K / UHD display… What more do you even need?
“The World’s Highest Performing Laptop” isn’t just a title for show. It’s the truth.
Specs? Great. Cooling? Even Better!
No matter how much of a high end configuration a system has, it can’t show its true colors if it’s always overheating.
That’s why the GZ700GX has eight heat pipes and 0.1mm thickness on each fin of its heat sinks, which is half the size of conventional heat sink fins. This beastly laptop also comes with 12v fans as opposed to 5v fans found on most laptops and performs air intake from the back of the laptop in order to effectively disperse and get rid of heat. There is absolutely no need to worry about performance for 「ROG Mothership GZ700GX」.
High End Everything
It’s not just the main body of the machine that’s high end. It goes so much deeper than that.
On top of the detachable keyboard, it also supports n-key rollover, in order to make sure that the player never misses an important keystroke. The touchpad on the keyboard also turns into a ten-key pad, requiring no need to purchase a separate tenkey keypad.
And it almost goes without saying that the LED lights are stunning.
Four speakers have been mounted in the hardware, so quality sound can be enjoyed without the purchase of extra external speakers.
This audio is powered by ESS™ Sabre HiFi DAC that has a 192kHz/24bit Hi-Res audio certification, which can also simulate surround sound when using headphones or VR headsets.
Release Date and Price
The ROG Mothership GZ700GX is set to release in fall of 2019 in Japan, and during Q2 as the GX700 in most other countries around the world. The price has yet to be announced in the US, but will be going for 925,000 JPY before taxes, so about 1,000,000 JPY after tax, which amounts to about $10,000 USD.
Although there’s still some time before the actual release, Asus held an event for the new system in Akasaka, Tokyo, so it’s quite possible you may get to check out this new beast at Asus Store Akasaka.
