Asus ROG GX800 Performance
You can either connect the adapter directly to the Laptop or mount the Cooling System that will provide better and a much stable performance if you intend to play high end games for a longer period of time.
It is recommended to use the Liquid Cooling system that helps keep the GPU / CPU temperature under control offering a non-interrupted, lag free and smooth gaming experience 24/7.
I ran the 3D Mark 11 benchmark app and got the score of 19818 that is very good considering the 4K resolution. Furmark benchmark app also showed that both the GPU temperatures were stable at around 67 degrees and 64 degrees.
The mechanical keyboard on this laptop is something unique, they also light up. Check the video review for more details.
Overall this is a powerful laptop and you can play high end games (name any game and it will play – Rise of Tomb Raider, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon to name a few) for 24/7 without any issues or lags, plus this is with a 4K screen. The Liquid cooling system is packed inside a suitcase and the laptop can be packed inside the laptop bag. Overall both are quite heavy. If you recall I did the review of Asus GX700 that also came with liquid cooling system and there everything was packed inside the suitcase.
Coming to the price, specs are impressive high end and so is the price around Rs. 8,00,000.
