The latest G701 Pascal refresh is coming to Europe this December with a G-Sync 1080p display capable of refresh rates of up to 120 Hz.

The popular Asus Republic of Gamers (ROG) series has its newest member with the upcoming G701VI. This massive 17.3-inch notebook is similar to the existing G701VO but with an overclockable GTX 1080 GPU. Other core features include:

  • 17.3-inch 1080p display w/ 120 Hz refresh rate and 72 percent NTSC color coverage
  • Core i7-6700HQ or unlocked i7-6820HK Skylake CPU options
  • 512 GB M.2 SSD w/ RAID options
  • Intel CM236 Express chipset
  • Up to 64 GB (2400 MHz) DDR4 RAM
  • 1x USB 3.1 Type-C w/ Thunderbolt 3, 3x USB 3.0, 1x HDMI, 1x mDP, 1x RJ-45
  • SDXC reader
  • 330 W external power adapter
  • Windows 10 Home operating system
  • 93 Wh 6-cell internal battery
  • WLAN 802.11ac
  • 429 x 309 x 35 mm
  • 3.8 kg

The GTX 1080 is currently the fastest GPU available on notebooks and it makes the G701VI a prime candidate for VR gaming. There are currently no SKUs with the GTX 1070 or with higher resolution display options above 1080p. When compared to competing MSI or Eurocom notebooks, most ROG notebooks are more difficult for the end-user to service.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
