Republic of Gamers (ROG), recently celebrated it’s 10th Anniversary by officiating the much-awaited launch of its newest most dominant laptop thus far… the ROG GX700! And I was one of the lucky few who got selected and invited to experience this superior gaming laptop.
During the event, it was announced that only 20 lucky people can exclusively own this one-of-a-kind laptop as this beast of a machine is “limited edition”. These lucky few will be called the “Legendary 20”.
This elite gaming group will also come home with awesome items and accessories:
- ROG Command case – a premium black luggage case to make sure that the ROG GX700 is safe
- Personalized Legendary 20 Luggage Tag – a stylish bag tag that displays the name of the owner
- ROG Sica Gaming Mouse
- Legendary 20 Jacket – a signature style jacket with a Legendary 20 print
Apart from the bragging rights of owning this powerhouse gaming device, the Legendary 20 are also entitled to first-class privileges such as:
- VIP access to all ROG-related events in the country
- Participation in exclusive “Legendary 20” activities (including a private DOTA tournament with an ROG endorser!)
But let’s focus on the specifications of this powerful gaming laptop as that is what we’re after here anyway.
The flagship GX700VO being the world’s first water-cooled gaming laptop is capable of overclocking because of it’s exclusive hydro overclocking system.
- Intel Core i7-6820HK (Overclocking Unlocked) Quad-Core processor (when the laptop is docked to is water-cooling station, overclocks to a 4GHz in stable voltage)
- 32gb OF 2133MHz DDR4 RAM (that overclocks to 2899 MHz)
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM
- 2x 256GB NVMe PCIe SSD set-up in RAID0 (allows for up to 3.5GB/s read/write speeds)
- Hydro Cooling System – featuring 2 radiators and a behemoth of fans with variable speed control (thru the built-in ROG Command Control Center software)
As much as I want to be part of the Legendary 20, I will have to pass up the opportunity to a more deserving individual. But with all the awesome features of this gaming laptop, gaming is surely going to be 100x better! I sure want to own one!
The limited edition ASUS GX700 is only available in the Philippines for the 1st 20 purchasers. Official SRP is Php249,995 and available at Villman, PC Corner, PC Express and Complink by March 2016.
