Asus Republic of Gamers (ROG) today launched the powerful ROG G701 gaming notebook in India. Priced at Rs.3,49,990, the ROG G701 is one of the most expensive gaming notebooks that the Taiwanese company has launched in India so far. While we cannot say that the steep pricing is justified, it does pack impressive hardware inside.
The ROG G701 sports a 17.3-inch 4K UHD panel with 3840 x 2160 4K resolution and a high 120 Hz refresh rate. Thanks to NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, you can look forward to an extremely smooth gaming experience without any tearing or stuttering. The notebook is powered by a 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7820HK unlocked processor, which has been paired with a whopping 64GB of DDR4-2800 RAM. For blazing-fast game load times, the ROG G701 is equipped with dual 512GB PCIe SSDs in RAID0 configuration. The PCIe SSDs can deliver speeds roughly four times higher than conventional SATA-based solid state drives. NVIDIA’s mighty GeForce GTX 1080 GPU powers the graphics, providing smooth performance even for 4K and VR gaming. Asus has used a unique thermal design inside the ROG 701, ensuring that dust does not enter the internal components. All the dust is directed to a dust-release tunnel, helping avoid radiator clogging and pronging the lifespan of the internal components. The cooling solution also includes dedicated modules for the CPU and GPU.
Moving on to the keyboard, the ROG G701 features an anti-ghosting keyboard with 30-key rollover technology, making sure each keystroke is registered instantaneously and correctly. Networking features include integrated Wi-Fi 802.11ac and built-in Bluetooth 4.0. Connectivity wise, it offers 1x RJ45 LAN, 1x HDMI, 1x mini Display Port, 1x USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 with Thunderbolt, 2x USB 3.0, and 1x USB 3.1 Type-C ports. To deliver a rich audio experience, the ROG 701 features a pro-grade ESS Sabre headphone DAC and amplifier offering eight times higher sample rate than CD-quality audio.
