84.4% Asus ROG G701VO-CS74K Xotic PC Edition Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
A more down-to-Earth GX700. Take away the water cooling capabilities of the GX700 and you're left with a lighter and wholly capable system in the form of a G701. While performance is where we expect it to be for a high-end gaming machine, the system still suffers from many of the same drawbacks as its ROG series siblings.
92% ASUS ROG G701 17.3" Overclockable Gaming Notebook Review
Source: Tweaktown English
The ASUS G701 is loaded with extremely high-end hardware. In almost every aspect, it's a direct competitor to most custom desktops. Its CPU is a top of the line mobile Intel Core i7 with overclocking support. Our unit came with 64GB of DDR4, a 1TB Samsung SM951 RAID 0 array, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M with 8GB of VRAM. The G701 is the crème de la crème of high-performance mobile notebooks, and can handle pretty much everything thrown its way.

A great machine in isolation, but similar rivals offer more for less. If it comes down in price, however, it might be worth revisiting.

Review: Asus ROG G701VI
Source: Hexus English
The Asus ROG G701VI is an old-school gaming laptop. Huge, heavy and unabashed in its attempt to cram maximum performance into a 17.3in form factor, it is designed to appeal exclusively to hardcore enthusiasts willing to spend big.

80% Asus ROG G701VI Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The $3,499 Asus ROG G701VI is one of those laptops that has to be seen to be believed. The system's gray-and-orange design sets it apart from the scores of laptops clad in red and black. But beyond the aesthetics, this system is kick ass, packing an overclockable 7th-generation Intel Kaby Lake processor and an Nvidia GTX 1080 GPU under its alluring chassis. It that's not enough, its pair of PCIe SSDs are some of the fastest I've encountered, and you get a lovely display with Nvidia G-Sync and 178-degree viewing angles. However, for the price, I would expect the system to have a configurable RGB keyboard like its cheaper cousins. And it would be nice if Asus could deliver louder, richer audio..

Gaming laptops are finally catching up with the performance of desktop graphics cards. The ASUS G701VI is an excellent gaming laptop for those who wants style and raw power in a slim package. The laptop is light for its size, and the 120Hz display is an added bonus for super-smooth gameplay that’s backed by the NVIDIA GTX 1080 GPU.

The Asus ROG G701VI is a mighty beast and in some respects it is over the top. We love the combination of Core i7 CPU and GTX 1080 GPU but see no need for 64GB of expensive DDR4 memory. The dual Toshiba SSDs in RAID are superb however it is easy to argue that RAID 0 is an accident that is waiting to happen.

Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
