ROG Strix GL702 Gaming Laptop Launched in Singapore


On 20 July ASUS’ Republic of Gamers (ROG) announced and launched the ROG Strix GL702 gaming laptop in Singapore. This is a laptop designed for gaming on the go. Whilst sporting a 17.3″ screen, the Strix still manages to remain compact and portable without compromising on performance. With a 6th generation Intel i7 quad-core processor and dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 970M graphics, performance remains high.



GL702 New Features

ROG’s new gaming laptop is certainly portable, weighing at a relatively light 2.7kg without compromising on screen size. It sports a satisfactory 8GB DDR4 RAM which will be able to handle the high intensity graphics of modern gaming. Meanwhile its dedicated GPU brings in 3GB of DDR5 vRAM that comes with DirectX 12 support, so there are no worries of being left behind graphically. The GL702 also comes with ROG’s triple-copper cooling system, which ASUS says maximises cooling efficiency even during prolonged gaming sessions.


The newest additions are in the ports. The GL702 comes with the latest Thunderbolt 3 Type-C USB ports. This allows for very fast data transfer even when using external graphics card support. For those overclockers out there, ASUS has included its exclusive program Turbomaster to make overclocking even simpler.


In terms of its keyboard, the GL702 comes with a specially designed chiclet gaming keyboard with scissor-switch keys. ASUS says this offers 1.6mm travel distance for keystrokes which should make gaming super responsive. Even the WASD keys are highlighted to make sure your hands travel to the right location quickly.
