Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701 Launch Feb. 20th For $3299

Asus will release that large 17.3-inch 2-in-1 tablet Asus ROG Mothership GZ700 in a couple of months. But before then Asus will release a very powerful new laptop with the upcoming launch of the Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701 on February 20th:

The Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701 is a 17.3-inch Windows 10 Pro gaming laptop, though its design is not as gaming radical as many of the laptops in this category often are. Instead it's more modern and functional so that more than just gamers can enjoy the benefits of a very powerful and speedy computer.

Highlights of it are of course the hexa-core 2.19 GHz – 4.09 GHz Intel Core i7-8750H “Coffee Lake” processor, with Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU (w/ 8GB DDR6 RAM), 16GB of DDR4 RAM (2666 MHz), 1TB of PCIe SSD storage, and 3ms latency on the 144 Hz 1920 x 1080 resolution display.

And it has some useful features too, ranging from slim bezels, the ability to charge from portable power banks while on the go, and things like a detachable webcam.
