ASUS Republic of Gamers G703GI overview

  • 1Description

Replacing their G703 lineup, the metallic copper 17.3" Republic of Gamers G703GI Laptop from ASUS is designed for gaming, thanks to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5X RAM, a Full HD 1920 x 1080 display, G-Sync technology, a 144 Hz refresh rate, a response time of 3 ms (GtG), wide viewing angles, and 72% NTSC color gamut coverage. The core of this system is driven by an unlocked 2.9 GHz Intel Core i9-8950HK Six-Core processor, which can be overclocked to 4.8 GHz, plus 32GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM. Storage is provided by two 256GB NVMe PCIe SSDs, which are configured in RAID 0 for improved performance, as well as a 2TB hard drive. The G703GI has also been built with 802.11ac Wi-Fi and a Republic of Gamers Aura RGB keyboard (individual key). The installed operating system is Windows 10 Pro Signature Edition (64-bit) and included is an AC adapter. Protection is provided by a limited 1-year warranty with free 2-way shipping, one year of accidental damage protection (ADP) with free 1-way shipping, a 30-day zero bright dot warranty, and 24/7 tech support.

General Features

144 Hz G-Sync Display
NVIDIA G-Sync technology syncs the display's refresh rate with the graphics card's frame rate output to reduce screen tearing and ghosting. Combined with a 144 Hz refresh rate, which helps to eliminate stuttering and jitters, you'll be able to enjoy smooth gameplay and react instantly to your game. The display also supports wide viewing angles and 72% NTSC gamut coverage.
Integrated XBox Module
It's time to break boundaries between gaming platforms. The G703 has exclusive Xbox features to offer a combination of computing power and gaming console-like convenience. The integrated Xbox Wireless module lets you connect up to eight Xbox One controllers without the need for an external USB dongle, while the Xbox hotkey fires up the Xbox Game bar, so you're ready to record and broadcast gameplay, or hook up with friends on Xbox Live across Xbox One, Windows 10, tablets, and smartphones. You can even play Xbox Play Anywhere digital titles on either Xbox One or Windows 10 at no additional cost. Your progress, including all save points, add-ons and achievements, goes with you.

Windows 10

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.
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.
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.
