Asus has taken the covers off the new ROG Chimera, which the company claims is the first gaming notebook to feature a display with a 144Hz refresh rate. The 17.3-inch 1080p display also incorporates Nvidia’s G-SYNC tech and has a 7ms response rate, which should ensure a tear-free and seamless visual experience. This combination of display technology has only previously been seen in desktop monitors.

Under the hood, the Asus ROG Chimera is powered by the Intel Core i7-7820HK processor. One of Intel’s most powerful 7th-generation quad-core mobile chips, it ships overclocked out of the factory at 4.3GHz. This is paired with Nvidia’s high-end GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card that can have its clock boosted to 1974MHz. In combination, Asus claims that gamers should be able to play the latest AAA titles on maximum detail settings. 

The Chimera is also notable for including built-in wireless support for Microsoft’s Xbox One controllers, allowing gamers to use their Xbox controller across devices without the need for adapters. This feature also helps to facilitate Microsoft’s Xbox Play Anywhere initiative, which gives customers a free PC version of any compatible Xbox One title. It also allows gamers to seamlessly switch from a console to PC (or vice versa), picking up from where they left off on either platform.

Pricing, additional details and availability are still to be announced.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
