Reviews for the Asus Chimera G703GI
Like a shot of adrenaline. Asus' new ROG Chimera G703GI is currently one of the fastest gaming laptops on the market. Thanks to its Core i9-8950HK and overclockable GeForce GTX 1080, even the most demanding games run fluidly. G-Sync and a 144 Hz monitor round out the package.
The Asus ROG G703GI is one of the most powerful gaming laptops we’ve ever tried, which also makes it one of the most expensive. If you can get past the high price tag and short battery life, you get an amazing portable gaming machine that can handle the latest games with ease.
