Republic of Gamers Announces GX800 Gaming Laptop with Liquid-Cooling

Powerful gaming laptop with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI graphics and advanced liquid-cooling system for real 4K UHD gaming


ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced GX800, a gaming laptop with the latest NVIDIA®GeForce® GTX 1080 SLI graphics and an advanced version of the Hydro Overclocking System liquid-cooling module. The 18-inch GX800 is the first gaming laptop designed to deliver real 4K UHD gameplay. It features NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology and supports leading virtual-reality (VR) headsets for super-smooth and stutter-free VR gaming. In addition, GX800 features the Mechanical Tactile Advanced Gaming (MechTAG) keyboard with programmable ROG Aura RGB LED effects for individual keys.


NVIDIA SLI graphics and Hydro Overclocking System

ROG GX800’s NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI graphics provides super-fast, silky-smooth gameplay and detailed gaming environments.  

GX800 is paired with an advanced version of its predecessor’s Hydro Overclocking System to give it the cooling performance required for extreme overclocking of the processor and graphics cards. The Hydro Overclocking System helps boost GX800 clock frequencies from 3.2GHz to 4.2GHz. When overclocked, GX800 achieves a 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra score of 10395.

A ROG-proprietary connection between the Hydro Overclocking System and GX800 ensures coolant flows smoothly between the two without leaking. The coolant is pumped and circulated around the processor and graphics card, before it returns to the cooling module where two radiators help to dissipate heat. To cope with these demands, GX800 has two 330W power adapters.  


Designed for real 4K UHD gaming visuals

The 18-inch ROG GX800 is the world’s first gaming laptop to provide real 4K UHD gameplay for realistic, highly-detailed gaming worlds with faster and smoother frame rates. GX800 is able to run games at ‘Ultra’ graphics settings at frame rates averaging over 60fps.        

In addition, the combination of NVIDIA SLI graphics and the Hydro Overclocking System ensures GX800 has the performance to deliver the very best VR gaming experiences. GX800 provides super-smooth, stutter-free VR visuals with frame rates exceeding 90fps. Featuring plug-and-play compatibility with leading VR headsets, GX800 is designed for immersive VR gaming.

Accurate and responsive keystrokes

The MechTAG keyboard has mechanical switches for positive clicks and 2.5mm of key travel for accurate, tactile keystrokes. It incorporates 100 percent anti-ghosting with 30-key rollover to ensure that multi-keystroke commands are correctly logged — even when 30 keys are pressed simultaneously. In addition, ROG Aura RGB LED effects can be customized for each key, allowing gamers to configure different effects and colors for individual keys.
