NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series Graphics Cards
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, this system is VR-ready so you can enjoy VR games and apps for a different take on computing.
NVIDIA G-Sync Technology
NVIDIA G-Sync technology syncs the display's refresh rate with the graphics card's frame rate output to reduce input lag, screen tearing, and stuttering for smoother experience.
144 Hz IPS Display
This notebook is equipped with a 144 Hz IPS-level display, which provides you with low lag and wide 178° viewing angles. With these features combined, you'll be able to spot your enemies easily and enjoy a smoother gaming experience.
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.
Backlit Keyboard
The ROG G703 is built with a RGB-backlit keyboard with four customizable zones. It also has four extra hotkeys, support for N-key rollover, and 0.3mm-deep curved keycaps for a comfortable typing experience.
Anti-Dust Cooling System
The Anti-Dust Cooling System can eject dust from the system to prevent buildup, which can cause overheating and system issues. For cooling, it's equipped with two high-performance fans and multiple heatpipes for the CPU and GPU.
ESS Sabre HiFi DAC
The ROG 703 is equipped with a ESS Sabre HiFi DAC that supports 32-bit, 384 kHz sound output for rich and detailed audio. Additionally, it has two tweeters and two full-range speakers that are designed to direct sound towards you.
Built-In Xbox Wireless Controller Module
The ROG G703 has a built-in Xbox wireless controller module that supports up to eight controllers so you won't have to buy an external USB dongle.
Asus ROG Gaming Center
Asus ROG Gaming Center is an optional, downloadable software that lets you monitor and adjust system settings such as CPU and GPU frequencies, voltage and temperatures, and more. Gaming Center also encompasses other software and features such as ROG GameFirst, Aura Core, and XSplit GameCaster.
Windows 10 Home
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 Laptop, 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.
