Asus’ Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand has launched the ROG GX700, world’s first liquid cooled laptop, in India. Priced at Rs. 4,12,990, the laptop is only available for purchase through request via the Asus website. The laptop comes with a detachable Hydro Overclocking System cooling module and a specially made ROG themes briefcase that helps the users carry the laptop and the cooling system around. The laptop is powered by a sixth generation Intel Core i7 processor with up to 64GB of RAM.
The company claims that the system not only helps to keep the laptop cool, but also allows the CPU to be overclocked by up to 48%, and the 64GB RAM to be overclocked by up to 43%. The laptop features a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics card and is also equipped with a traditional cooling system so that it can be used without the liquid cooling dock.
