With the advancements in mobile graphics, the 17.3" Republic of Gamers G701VI Notebook from Asus demonstrates the pinnacle of mobile performance. Its NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM offers similar performance to the desktop variant, allowing you to max out a game's graphical settings so you can enjoy it at its best. Combined with the 17.3" display that has a 1920 x 1080 resolution, you'll be able to enjoy crisp and clear Full HD content. Furthermore, it's built with NVIDIA G-Sync technology, which syncs the display's refresh rate with the graphics card's frame rate output to reduce tearing, stuttering, and laggy gameplay. It also has a 120 Hz refresh rate for a smooth and responsive experience whether you're gaming or browsing the Internet.

Equipped with a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7-6820HK Quad-Core processor and 32GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM, the ROG G701VI can efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs. When handling a heavier workload, the CPU can reach up to 3.6 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology. For storage, it has a 512GB SSD. SSDs are constructed without any moving parts and can thus endure more and perform faster than a traditional hard drive. Moreover, with a PCIe interface, it'll be able to deliver much faster speeds than that of a SSD with a SATA connection.

Should you run out of storage space, you can connect external storage devices with its multiple USB ports, some of which feature the reversible Type-C interface, as well as its SD media card reader that can quickly transfer files between mobile devices. Pair compatible wireless peripherals using Bluetooth 4.0 technology and free up the USB ports for other devices. Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or the Gigabit Ethernet port for a more stable and reliable wired connection. Other integrated features include a webcam, speakers, microphones, a backlit keyboard, Thunderbolt 3, and a HDMI and Mini-DisplayPort for connecting external displays. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Professional (64-bit).

NVIDIA 10-Series Graphics Card
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards can deliver up to a 40% increase in performance over the previous generation. Not only are they powerful, they can deliver similar performance to their desktop counterparts with a slight performance difference. This changes mobile gaming, allowing you to max out your game's visuals settings so you can enjoy it at its best. Furthermore, 10-series graphics cards are VR ready so plug in your favorite headset for a new computing experience.
NVIDIA G-Sync Technology & 120 Hz Display
NVIDIA G-Sync technology syncs the display's refresh rate with the graphics card's frame rate output to reduce stuttering, screen tearing, and input lag for a more responsive and lag-free experience. When combined with the 120 Hz display, games, videos, and even everyday tasks will feel even more fluid and responsive.
Anti-Ghosting 30-Key Rollover Keyboard
When gaming, you're often pressing multiple keys at once. Therefore, the ROG G701 has an anti-ghosting keyboard with 30-key rollover so you can press up to 30 keys at the same time and have them all register correctly, even when you hit several of them at once. Each key is ergonomically-designed for solid and responsive keystrokes. Additionally, the keyboard has a macro recording key to assist you on the battlefield.
ESS Sabre Headphone DAC and Amplifier
The ROG G701 is equipped with ESS Sabre headphone DAC and amplifier for high quality audio. You'll be able to enjoy a wide dynamic range of sounds with less noise for a more satisfying experience.
DDR4 RAM
The ROG G701 is equipped with DDR4 RAM clocked at 2400 MHz, which gives you up to 20% more performance and 30% more energy efficiency over 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM.
ROG Gaming Center
Enhance your gaming experience with ROG Gaming Center. This downloadable software provides you with a control panel to multiple functions such as system information, hotkey setup, audio settings, recording options, and more. In addition, ASUS GameFirst III technology optimizes network traffic for faster, lag-free online gaming. You'll be able to choose between four preset package priority modes (Optimization, Game, Media Streaming, and File Sharing) to better suit your needs.
XSplit Gamecaster
By purchasing the ROG G701, you'll have lifetime access to XSplit Gamecaster so you can easily stream or record gameplay using its convenient in-game overlay. You can even make in-game annotations with a single keystroke to highlight what's happening onscreen, as well as interact with friends and fans by broadcasting on Twitch.
Sonic Studio II & Sonic Radar II
ASUS Sonic Studio and Sonic Radar enhances your gaming, streaming, and recording audio for better clarity and voice pickup. Sonic Radar assists you in FPS (First Person Shooters) via an on-screen overlay that shows the relative position of gunshots, footsteps and other in-game sound effects.
Thunderbolt 3
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.

Windows 10 Professional

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
Windows 10 Pro
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for businesses users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
