Directly from ASUS headquarters in Taipei, Taiwan, ASUS invited several media in Indonesia to cover the leak of one of the newest products from the Republic of Gamers family (ROG) which is planned to appear at the upcoming Berlin 2018 IFA.
One of the products shown is the ROG GL704 Strix SCAR II. This gaming monster is a higher version than the ROG GL504which was introduced in Indonesia some time ago. Here are some of the excellent features of ASUS ROG GL704 Strix SCAR II:
One of the striking differences between the ROG GL704 and GL504 lies in the screen. Having a screen bezel that is equally thin, the ROG GL504’s screen span is 15.6 inches, while the GL704 screen measures 17.3 inches. The screen uses IPS panel with full HD resolution and has supported 144 Hz refresh rate technology with 3ms response time.
For its own specifications, the ROG GL704 is equipped with a fierce innards, namely Intel® Core ™ i7-8750H, NVIDIA GTX 1060 Vram 6 GB, 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi, 4K UHD and G-SYNC outputs. ASUS also buried storage large enough, namely SSD up to 512 GB and 1 TB HDD which is supported with DDR4 RAM 2666 MHz to 32 GB.
Control Center baru
Here ASUS makes a new control center called Armory Crate which replaces the ROG Gaming Center. The interface between the faces is fresher and the features are also mine compared to before. In addition, users can also set Armory Crate laptop directly from Android and iOS smartphones.
Keyboard for games
Created specifically for hardcore gamers, ASUS immerses a full keyboard on the ROG GL704. The keyboard is equipped with Overstroke technology which allows the button to have a fast response and hold up to 20 million presses. Because it was made specifically for FPS gamers, ASUS deliberately distinguishes the WASD button compared to other buttons.
For customization, GL704 is equipped with RGB lights that are supported by AURA Sync. When opening the AURA Sync view, the user can set seven RGB swell zones in the laptop, namely four zones on the keyboard, two front led lights and one in the one eye logo that is behind.
Another advantage that comes with ASUS GL704 lies in the cooling system. This laptop is equipped with HyperCool Pro cooling system technology with three separate fans. One fan is dedicated to the GPU and two other fans are intended to keep the temperature of the laptop cool. In addition, this fan is also equipped with Anti-Dust tunneling system to remove all the dust that comes in so the fan performance is not hampered.
