Reviews for the Asus GX700

83.8% Asus GX700 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Bring in the water! While water-cooled desktop systems are not uncommon, most notebook models are exclusively cooled by air. Asus still takes this step and presents the GX700, a combination of high-end laptop and external water-cooling. As one of the first editorial offices, we had the chance to take a closer look at the overall package.
Asus ROG GX700 Review

Applications that should work perfectly fine just crashed, the keyboard and trackpad were disappointing, and the speakers just aren't all that good. There's also no upgrade path; the dock won't work with future laptop models. However, the worst thing about the GX700 is that we already know it's outdated. This product has been available internationally for just under a year, and if we're spending so much money, we want the absolute best. Asus showed off its GX800 model at this year's Computex, and that model has not one but two GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs, plus a mechanical keyboard and better speakers.

90% Asus ROG GX700 Watercooled Laptop Review

Games, too, run absolutely butter-smooth. Even when the frame rates are lower than you might like (which happens in some games no matter what hardware you have), the G-sync panel keeps things smooth and tear-free. Aside from the main talking-points of the system, it has essentially everything you could need or want in terms of features. Two USB 3.1 Type C ports are present as well as three USB 3.0 Type A ports. 32GB of RAM is more than enough for simple gaming, and the Samsung SM951s in RAID0 thunder along at a great pace.

80% Asus ROG GX700 review

If you want the most powerful laptop that a lot of money can buy, then you should absolutely buy the ROG GX700. Or you could pay £1,000 less and get a laptop that’s nearly as powerful in the form of the MSI Dragon and you’ll barely notice the difference. But price/performance sums aren’t really relevant when the product in question is a unique piece of gaming hardware.

The ASUS ROG GX700 is a fantastic piece of tech, but it still raises a simple question: Why would you want one? It’s a beautiful laptop with plenty of power but costs a whopping AED 20,000. If you have that much money, wouldn’t you rather build a super high end gaming rig?

There’s no getting around the fact that a liquid-cooled notebook feels like overkill. But having spent a week with the Asus ROG GX700, I have to say it's winning me over. The ROG GX700 may be a laptop in name only, with its hefty weight and cooling module weighing more than most small children, but it's stonkingly fast and has one of the best screens I’ve seen on a gaming notebook.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 (Laptop): Overclockable laptop graphics card based on the desktop GTX 980. Performance depends on the cooling solution and power supply. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). 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.  
6820HK: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

84.7%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
