The ASUS Coffee Lake Gaming Laptops Revealed!

The ASUS Coffee Lake Gaming Laptops Revealed!

ASUS just refreshed their entire range of gaming laptops with the new 8th Gen Intel Core processors, codenamed Coffee Lake, and added two new gaming laptop models. Here is everything you need to know about the ASUS Coffee Lake gaming laptops!

 

The ASUS Coffee Lake Gaming Laptops

ASUS ROG Product Manager Louis Lu gave us a thorough briefing on the key features of the ASUS Coffee Lake gaming laptops, as well as their specifications and prices. He also compared them to the competition from MSI, Lenovo, Acer and Dell.

Intel Coffee Lake Processors

The new ASUS Coffee Lake gaming laptops all come with the new 8th Gen Intel Core processors. Codenamed Coffee Lake, they offer up to 6 processor cores, with 10% better performance than the 7th Gen Core (Kaby Lake) processors, and 30% better performance than the 6th Gen (Skylake) Core processors.

12V Fans

[adrotate group=”2″]

The new ASUS Coffee Lake gaming laptops feature 12V fans, which spin 20% faster than regular 5V fans. The new fans also have 59 blades, up from just 37 blades. This allows them to deliver 42.5% more airflow, with 92% higher air pressure.

Anti-Dust Cooling System

The fans in the ASUS Coffee Lake gaming laptops feature an exclusive Anti-Dust Cooling System. It basically harnesses the centrifugal force of the fans to shunt dust and debris into an “anti-dust tunnel”. This reduces the amount of dust clogging the heatsinks.

This helps to maintain the performance of the CPU and GPU coolers over time. Keeping the heatsinks clean will also help to reduce fan noise, since the fans don’t need to work harder.

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus (GX501) Gaming Laptop Revealed!

When we first saw the ASUS ROG Zephyrus (GX501) gaming laptop at Computex 2017, we were very impressed. Unlike the usual gaming laptops that traded weight and bulk for performance, what we saw was a very sleek and powerful laptop.

ASUS calls the ROG Zephyrus the world’s slimmest gaming laptop with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080. And now, it’s available in Malaysia! Let’s take a closer look at the ROG Zephyrus!

 

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus (GX501) Gaming Laptop Revealed!

Let’s start with a short presentation on the ASUS ROG Zephyrus (GX501) gaming laptop by Megan Wang (ASUS Consumer Product Notebook Manager).

And the big reveal!

[adrotate group=”1″]

 

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus (GX501) Gaming Laptop Up Close!

Now, let’s take a closer look at the ROG Zephyrus and find out what’s great about it!

Slim And Sleek

The ROG Zephyrus has a slim profile just 16.9-17.9 mm thin and weighs only 2.2 kg, but that doesn’t stop it from packing the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 with Max-Q Design inside! An innovative hinge and fan module help keep the GPU cool, resulting in a gaming laptop that’s portable enough to carry with you anywhere, yet potent enough to compete with powerful gaming desktops.

Play It Cool

The ASUS Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) allows the ROG Zephyrus to run cooler and quieter without sacrificing performance. When the laptop is opened, part of the bottom plate opens up to create 20% more open space for air circulation. Along with their AeroAccelerator technology, this gap improves airflow by 32% and reduces temperatures by 20% compared to conventional cooling.

Breathe Deeply

The ROG-exclusive Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) includes several enhancements to make the cooler more effective, improving internal airflow and allowing the fan to spin slower and quieter while maintaining low temperatures. ASUS also adjusted the shape of the intake to reduce noise levels further and make the acoustic profile less obtrusive.

Aura RGB Keyboard

[adrotate group=”2″]

The ROG Zephyrus’ keyboard is positioned at the front of the chassis to allow better cooling for the internal components and a more comfortable, familiar position for gamers accustomed to desktop keyboards. Aura RGB lighting lets you customize colors and dynamic effects for the entire keyboard, and you can adjust the QWER and WASD clusters separately to adapt to MOBA, FPS, and other games.

Anti-ghosting tech ensures your commands are interpreted instantly and correctly — even if you hit up to 30 keys simultaneously. The ergonomically designed keys have 1.4mm of travel for greater comfort and accuracy when gaming and typing. With an expected lifetime of 20 million presses, the keys offer exceptional durability and reliability for heavy use.

Ultimate Gaming Performance

ROG Zephyrus is powered by the 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, which allows it to go toe-to-toe with the most hardcore gaming laptops — and even high-end desktops.

 

Price & Availability

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus (GX501) gaming laptop is now available with the following specifications for a launch price of RM 15,999 / ~US$ 3,799, inclusive of the 6% GST.

  • Intel Core i7-7700HQ
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 with 8GB GDDR5X memory and Max-Q Design
  • 24 GB DDR4-2400 memory
  • 1 TB M.2 PCIe SSD
  • 15.6″ Full HD 120 Hz G-SYNC display with anti-glare, wide-angle panel

The 2017 ASUS ROG Products Unveiled At Computex 2017!

The last major event of the first day of Computex 2017 was the ASUS ROG Computex 2017 press conference. ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih, who earlier in the day joined Intel at their Computex 2017 keynote, led the presentation of the wide plethora of new 2017 ASUS ROG products.

In this article, we will share with you the details of every new 2017 ASUS ROG product that was unveiled at the ASUS ROG Computex 2017 press conference!

 

The 2017 ASUS ROG Gaming Laptops

The ROG Zephyrus GX501

The delicate balance between portability and power is different for most people, and for every choice there’s likely a sacrifice you’d rather avoid. The ROG Zephyrus GX501 is the answer to your conundrum. If you crave gaming power, its 7th Generation Intel Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics will satisfy your hunger. There’s enough juice on tap to pump out better gaming performance than you’ve probably tasted on a gaming laptop.

If you want all that power harnessed in an ultra-sleek 15″ laptop, the Zephyrus is only 17.9 mm thin and weighs in at 2.2kg. The real magic is in the Active Aerodynamic System, which allows the chassis to expand and maximize airflow when you open the lid. How cool is that?

 

The ROG Strix GL702ZC

The Strix GL702ZC is the first gaming laptop to feature an eight-core processor, specifically AMD’s new Ryzen 1700 CPU. Pair that with Radeon RX 580 graphics, and you have VR-ready performance to go. You won’t find another 17-incher with this much multi-tasking power for the price. And you have a nice choice of FreeSync display options, including 4K at 60Hz and 1080p at 120Hz.

 

The ROG Strix GL702VI

If your motto is go big or go home, you know you can’t go wrong with a GeForce GTX 1080 in a 17″ laptop. The Strix GL702VI was created to allow more people to live that dream. Configure yours with an Intel Core i7 or i5 processor and up to 32GB of memory. You can also opt for a 120Hz display and PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSD. It’ll be well worth it!

The ROG Strix GL503 and GL703 for eSports Gaming

The new ROG Strix GL503 and GL703 series deliver the best combination of price, performance, and portability. And for the first time, versions have been tailored exclusively for different types of esports games. The Hero Edition is designed for MOBAs, while the SCAR Edition is tweaked for competitive FPS gaming. There’s also a traditional version without genre-specific touches.

These ROG Strix laptops are predominantly black with luxurious brushed-metal covers. At the core of each one lies the latest Intel 7th Generation Core i7 or i5 processor, up to 32GB of memory, and a Pascal-based GTX 10-series GPU. Here’s a look at the different designs:

The Hero Edition designed for MOBA aficionados

The SCAR Edition designed for first-person shooters

The 2017 ASUS ROG Monitors

Wrap your head around this: the world’s first 35″ ultra-wide QHD (3440×1440) monitor with quantum dots, HDR, and G-Sync up to an incredible 200Hz. The ROG Swift PG35VQ‘s gargantuan curved screen and 21:9 aspect ratio will exercise your peripheral vision for immersive action without a VR headset.

The bar for realism has reached new heights, as HDR and quantum-dot technology bring graphics that are truer to life than ever before. It’s not a complete experience without G-Sync and a fast refresh rate for buttery-smooth visuals, and we’ve even added Aura Sync RGB lighting to complete your desktop experience.

 

The New ROG Strix monitors – the XG32VQ, XG27VQ, and XG258Q

Adaptive-Sync, otherwise known as FreeSync, joins the ROG monitor family with the new Strix series. The big daddy of the bunch is the XG32VQ, which stretches its 31.5″ panel across an 1800R curve. This has the highest resolution, at 2560×1440, and the refresh rate scales up to 144Hz.

The XG27VQ features the same curvature on a smaller 27″ screen. Its 144Hz maximum refresh rate is the same, but the resolution is 1920×1080. Speed freaks should pay close attention to the XG258Q, whose flat 25″ 1080p panel would look ordinary were it not for the insanely high 240Hz refresh rate. All three are equipped with Aura RGB lighting, and the XG32VQ can synchronize colors and effects with Aura Sync-compatible hardware.

The 2017 ASUS ROG Motherboards

Both Intel and AMD have introduced their most powerful consumer processors to date. With more CPU cores and PCIe lanes, plus quad-channel DDR4 memory, these new chips look like they’re meant for servers. That’s sort of correct, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use them in a killer gaming rig.

 

The ROG Rampage VI Extreme

When you will accept nothing less than the best to pair with your latest Intel Skylake-X processor, the Rampage VI Extreme gives you everything the new X299 platform offers alongside a full slate of ROG enhancements.

New ROG innovations take performance, cooling, and aesthetics even further, which is exactly what want for the foundation of a dream build. Your PC will stand out in a crowd, especially with the new integrated LiveDash OLED showing real-time system info, and the potential for more complex lighting effects via the onboard header for addressable RGB strips.

 

The ROG Strix X299-E Gaming

The Strix X299-E Gaming is the perfect entry point when you want to match the latest Skylake-X processor with an ROG motherboard. Its ATX form allows for mid-tower builds while still offering plenty of slots, ports, and headers. Get ready for the next generation of RGB lighting with addressable LED strips, which let you control each LED individually.

 

The ROG Zenith Extreme

The ROG Zenith Extreme is ready for the upcoming Ryzen Threadripper processor from AMD. The server-like specs are jaw-dropping, so make you have the right X399 motherboard to match. Get ready for quad-channel DDR4 memory support and 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes for a multi-GPU system loaded with ultra-fast NVMe SSDs.

The 2017 ASUS ROG Accessories

The ROG Strix Fusion Headset

Synchronized lighting is now available for your desktop, monitor, and peripherals, so why not your gaming headset? The Strix Fusion synchronizes its RGB lighting across multiple headsets via Bluetooth to show your team colors. The lighting effects can be controlled by a dedicated app for iOS and Android.

Now that you have the other team’s attention, it’s time to prove the Fusion isn’t just for show. Good thing you’ll have the edge thanks to virtual 7.1-channel surround sound.

 

The ROG Scabbard Gaming Mouse Pad

The next massive mouse pad from ROG is the Scabbard, the successor to the hugely-popular ROG Sheath. The massive surface area makes it more of a desk mat; let’s just say you must have mega-long arms if you somehow manage to run out of space. Crafted out of Cordura Lite fabric, the surface provides responsive tracking, excellent durability, and protection against accidental spills.

The ROG Strix Edge Mouse Pad

Those with limited desk space may have a hard time finding the right mouse pad. The Strix Edge solves the problem with a portrait-style orientation that can also be rotated when needed. Light and rollable, the Strix Edge makes a great portable mouse pad. The responsive tracking on the surface and excellent grip on the non-slip rubber base will give you the edge you need wherever you go.
