ASUS ROG GX800VH, the gaming laptop ROG GX700 successor has finally officially launched in 2017 in the international scale. Birth of ASUS’s latest masterpiece gaming notebooks does take quite long considering GX800VH ROG has made its public debut last year at the Computex 2016. The long wait was indeed sweet fruit for ASUS ROG GX800VH equipped processor components and the most advanced graphics cards from Intel and NVIDIA today that you ensure the number one in terms of gaming. Of course, ASUS ROG ROG GX800VH still bequeath uniqueness previous GX700 with the presence of water-cooler system module.

Like its predecessor, the ASUS ROG GX800VH participate foothold in the Indonesian market since late March. With hardware specifications “super”, it is not strange that the ASUS ROG GX800VH have high price of about $ 7000. The sale price is classified as fantastic and as it makes no sense for a notebook / laptop gaming. In this article let’s look further capabilities such as whether offered ASUS ROG GX800VH so has the price at that. This is it!

Intel Core i7 processor 7820HK chosen to be “smart brains” behind the notebook / laptop ASUS ROG gaming GX800VH. Launched at the beginning of January 2017 and then, the Core i7 7820HK has adopted the most advanced CPU architecture from Intel’s current codename Kaby Lake. 7820HK Core i7 is a quad core processor with Hyper-Threading technology that is capable of handling eight computing process at once in one time. These processors have a value base clock speed of 2.9 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 score a clock speed of 3.9 GHz when one core works, 3.7 GHz when the two cores to work, and 3.5 GHz when the four cores to work. Of course, as a variant of the K Series Intel processor, clock speed or velocity values Core i7 7820HK work can be increased even higher with overclocking. Even 7820HK which is a Core i7 processor notebook / laptop can match its desktop variant on the value of the same clock speed by overclocking.

ASUS Core i7 processors integrate 7820HK with FCBGA1440 socket motherboard based on chipset Intel CM238.

Capacity Memory / RAM given ASUS ROG GX800VH does not mess around. Notebook / gaming laptop comes with a memory capacity / RAM tremendous namely 64 GB. With a capacity for it, the owner of the ASUS ROG GX800VH no longer need to think about upgrading because Core i7 7820HK only able to handle memory / RAM of it. The type of memory / RAM used is DDR4 (1.2 volts) at a speed of 2400 MHz default workspace and can be increased up to 2800 MHz by using Intel XMP features.

ASUS ROG GX800VH created to ensure owners get the performance and the gaming experience to the fullest. Therefore it is not strange if the ASUS gaming choose the fastest graphics card on earth for the notebook / laptop that is 8 GB GeForce 1080 GTX from NVIDIA GDDR5X. Not until there are, the ASUS ROG GX800VH did not use one, but two pieces of GeForce 1080 GTX in it on a 2-way SLI configuration. Therefore it is not strange if the ASUS ROG GX800VH ready to “devour” the modern 3D gaming output current and will come with ease.
ASUS ROG GX800VH certainly use the 1080 version of the GeForce GTX notebook / laptop but with the exact same hardware as the desktop version. Please note NVIDIA graphics cards for desktop PCs and notebook / laptop using either the exact same hardware components as well as the memory GPU / VRAM. Differences are found only on the value base GPU clock speed is slightly lower. GeForce 1080 GTX in ASUS ROG GX800VH value base GPU clock speed of only 25 MHz lower than the desktop variant with default specifications.

In this year GX800VH ROG successfully proved itself as the highest masterpiece at the same time for the product best ASUS notebook / laptop gaming. ASUS product edition in 2017 was indeed so OUTSTANDING. Coming up with a fantastic selling price (for a notebook / laptop gaming), ASUS ROG GX800VH offering components with the best specifications on the market today. Not strange indeed for ASUS ROG GX800VH mission into gaming machines with the capability and performance of the number one in the form of a notebook / laptop.

Implementation screen 4K / Ultra HD in ASUS ROG GX800VH lengkah indeed be right. TWO GeForce 1080 GTX not having problems generating high frame rate at the maximum visual quality with a resolution of 4K / Ultra HD though. Even though 2017 output game can be played comfortably while retaining a visual feast for the eyes. The gaming experience on the ASUS ROG GX800VH even more perfect with the screen NVIDIA G-SYNC technology that is ready to minimize the symptoms of image tearing, stuttering, and input lag. Not until there are, two GeForce 1080 GTX makes the ASUS ROG GX800VH prepared perfectly VR display content by using devices such as the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.

In addition to super gaming performance, the ASUS ROG GX800VH processor also offers performance that can compensate for desktop PCs though. ASUS ROG GX800VH processor is only equipped notebook / laptop, the Core i7 7820HK. However, these processors Intel into the ranks of the K Series that can be overclocked or improved performance / her speed. Can be easily guessed how 7820HK Core i7 performance when overclocked. Desktop processor performance Core i7 7700K and i7 7700 even can be offset easily. Interestingly for overclocking Core i7 7820HK users simply replace presets available in utility ROG Gaming Center. Easy is not it ?!

Docking unit with liquid cooling system in it seems to have an important role in the overall performance of the ASUS ROG GX800VH. In our testing session running a successful docking unit whose main mission in suppressing the heat generated by components of the processor and graphics card so that the performance of the resulting fixed maximum. The most significant results of the working temperature can be seen on two GeForce 1080 GTX difficult to touch the figure of 70 ° C in Extreme mode where chip GPU and memory / VRAM in overclocked conditions. For the processor component we find the use of voltage that is high in Extreme mode causes the working temperature crept up over above 90 ° C. But such conditions do not preclude the ASUS ROG GX800VH to keep operating as it should. Interestingly, the working temperature difference is not too much between the fan speeds Auto and 100%, making the fan can be set on low speed, thereby reducing noise.

High gaming performance more perfect with an abundance of supporting features on the ASUS ROG gaming activity GX800VH. Just look at the implementation of a mechanical keyboard for the best input response during game play. ASUS ROG GX800VH also equipped with a four-speaker sound system powered DAC / Amplifier ESS Saber for maximum sound quality. Notebook / laptop gaming is also mengadirkan USB 3.1 connectivity as well Thunderbolt Gen 2 3.0 for data transfer at speeds BIG “super fast”. ASUS ROG GX800VH also comes with 1.5 TB RAID 0 SSD NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 and memory / 64 GB DDR4 RAM so that programs installed in it can exert great efforts.

Although it offers outstanding capabilities as a notebook / laptop gaming, ASUS ROG GX800VH mobility factor is to be understaffed. It takes two bags to carry ASUS ROG GX800VH complete with dock unit. Not to mention the weight of the ASUS ROG GX800VH + dock that reaches more than 10 kg and not calculate the weight of the two bags and other equipment. Move within the city may seem cumbersome but more hassles will be felt if the city move first with air transport. Nevertheless these shortcomings can be overlooked if the ASUS ROG GX800VH be used as a desktop PC replacement unit or just to take a notebook / laptop its course even though in our opinion still relatively heavy.

Birth of ASUS ROG GX800VH indeed be evidence of the extent to which the people behind the Taiwanese company was able to devote his best ideas in creating products notebook / laptop gaming. To have this premium product is needed budget does little but what you get is only offered by a handful of ASUS ROG products like this GX800VH.
