ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announced Strix GL702ZC yesterday, the world’s first gaming laptop featuring the AMD Ryzen™ 7 processor and an 8-core computing power with multi-threading technology for unstoppable gaming performance. It is designed to handle demanding workloads associated with hardcore gaming and heavy media consumption.
World’s ONLY AMD Ryzen 7 gaming laptop
Thanks to an exclusive deal between ROG and AMD, Strix GL702ZC is the world’s first gaming laptop that is powered by the AMD Ryzen 7 1700 processor. This processor features eight cores and 16 threads, with a maximum boosted speed of 3.7GHz to give users the performance required for intense gaming or productive computing. Their strong multithreaded performance is prized by power users for providing enough oomph for simultaneous gaming and streaming, or more productive pursuits, like content creation and heavy multitasking.
Strix GL702ZC features AMD Radeon™ RX580 graphics with 4GB DDR5 VRAM for the visual prowess required for the latest games and graphics-intensive virtual reality (VR) applications.
AMD FreeSync technology for ultra-smooth visuals
Strix GL702ZC can be specified with up to a 17.3-inch 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) IPS display with 178° wide viewing angles and AMD FreeSync display technology. This display will be available in multiple configurations, including 1080p variants at 75Hz and 120Hz. The high-resolution option is great for content creators and gamers who play less demanding titles, while the high-refresh alternative is ideal for action-packed shooters and fast-paced play. AMD FreeSync synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the graphics card to prevent lag, minimize frame-rate stutter and eliminate visual tearing for ultra-smooth gaming visuals. In addition to compensating for performance wrinkles, FreeSync lowers input lag and eliminates visual tearing, resulting in fewer disruptions to your sense of immersion. Strix GL702ZC even works with FreeSync-compatible external monitors via DisplayPort or HDMI.
Strix GL702ZC features ROG Gaming Center, a unique dashboard that lets gamers launch ROG applications and access the settings menu. It works with integrated applications including ROG GameFirst IV, XSplit Gamecaster, and ASUS Splendid visual technology.
The back-lit keyboard features anti-ghosting technology to ensure all keystrokes are instantaneously and correctly interpreted, even when 30 keys are pressed simultaneously.
“The Philippine gaming landscape continues to be ever so exciting each day that passes and we take this opportunity to introduce new and innovative gaming machines. ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) being the World’s Undisputed No. 1 Gaming Brand Worldwide is committed to empower Filipino gamers and enthusiasts by providing beyond conventional products that meets the evolving demands of today’s consumers,” shares George Su, Country Manager of ASUS Philippines System Business Group.
