Gaming laptops are still struggling to secure a soft spot in the hearts of hardcore gamers. Some gamers find it hard to let go of their consoles and controllers while the rest cling to their desktop PCs for immersive gaming experience and scoff at the idea of using a laptop for gaming. However, that’s not stopping ASUS from revolutionising the gaming world with their unprecedented portable gaming technology. Squeezing the power of a giant desktop PC into a slim, sleek laptop, ASUS has unveiled its wildest gaming beast with the world’s fastest laptop display – ROG Mothership GZ700GX at the IFA 2019.
ASUS gaming laptops under the ROG line-up have pushed the boundaries when it comes to changing the face of immersive gaming. ASUS first announced its powerful and revolutionary gaming laptop ROG Mothership GZ700GX at CES 2019 in April. However, at IFA 2019, it finally revealed the display designed for high-end gaming. Let’s have a detailed look at what to expect from this gaming powerhouse that’s taken the tech world by storm.
ASUS ROG Mothership GZ700GX is a 17.3” notebook with an impressive 300Hz display and a detachable keyboard. While most gaming laptops support 120Hz and 144Hz displays, there are a couple of renowned computer manufacturers such as HP, Alienware, Razor and ASUS that take pride in introducing 240Hz display in their gaming laptops. Pursuing its dedication to innovative designs, ASUS has also aimed to redefine how gamers play by incorporating the 300Hz display. Faster refresh rate results in reduced blurring and stuttering in games, consequently, delivering a smoother gaming experience. However, to fully harness the benefit of 300Hz display, users will need a high-end graphics card to boost the frame rate above 240fps. ASUS ROG Mothership GZ700GX can pull up a new frame every 3.3 milliseconds that’s equivalent of 3ms response time of the pixels. This will be the first laptop finally available with this display in the market.
In terms of design, Mothership is more intimidating than any other tech on your table. Its metal chassis and flashing LED lights perfectly channel the cool vibe that gaming geeks look for. A kickstand props open providing solid support while the bottom lip reveals a detachable keyboard and touchpad. The upright design of the Mothership also helps with the cooling by funnelling hot air straight up and out of the laptop. ASUS laptops never cease to surprise the tech enthusiasts and the Mothership is no different.
Processing Power & Graphics
The ASUS ROG Mothership GZ700GX is a gaming powerhouse running on the 9th Gen Intel Core i9 eight-core CPU and a 64GB RAM. If you wish to use the Mothership as you would use a solid workstation, then you won’t be disappointed. Packed with power, Mothership is designed to take your gaming experience to the next level. This semi-portable package also houses a 2TB of PCIe SSD storage to make stutter and lag a thing of the past. From the Adobe suite to the heaviest games, this flashy beast runs every program with ease.
It comes integrated with the latest NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX graphics, guaranteeing new standards for laptop gaming and VR performance. The gamers are sure to experience lifelike reflections, lighting, shadows and realism beyond expectations.
Battery & Upgrades
The ASUS ROG Mothership GZ700GX does have a battery. It is best if you prop up the Mothership at one spot and use it there plugged in. If you wish to relocate and use it as a portable pc, it will give you a battery life somewhere around 4 hours. We suggest using the battery only when you really need to.
Although upgrading the ASUS ROG Mothership GZ700GX is said to be possible, when you actually get down to it you would find many screws hidden around the chassis that it might eventually turn into a daunting task. However, you can still find your way around and take a peek inside if your curiosity gets the better of you.
Packed with ground-breaking features and boasting the signature snappy, flashy gaming aesthetic, ASUS ROG Mothership GZ700GX is indeed a toasty treat for the gaming geeks. You can check out more gaming laptops here.
