Asus GX700 is the first ever water-cooled laptop in the world. Asus unveiled its latest addition to its Republic of Gamers (ROG) line-up, GX700 at IFA 2015 held in Berlin on Wednesday.
Asus GX700 comes with an overclockable quad-core Skylake Intel K-series chip. It also has a 17-inch 4K display for that real deal experience. The water cooling system is an additional unit attached to the laptop, according to PC World. The extra bulk could possible sway away buyers as it may not pass as a laptop anymore.
Many gaming and computing products were featured in IFA 2015 and Asus GX700 is reported to be one among few products designed exclusively for gaming purposes. The laptop is equipped with Nvidia GTX 980M graphics card, a keyboard with 30-key rollover anti-ghosting and out-of-the-box overclocking, according to PC Mag.
Officially, no information was given by Asus about the most formidable gaming laptop except for quoting that it would provide a stable and ultra-fast performance. The company promised for more details in near future, but noted nothing about the cost of the laptop as such.
The laptop with its water cooling unit looks huge in size compared to other laptops in the market. The cooling unit makes the laptop less portable. If one is looking for a laptop particularly for its portability Asus GX700 isn’t a device of choice as it gives much of desktop PC appeal and also weigh close by. But then again, the geniuses in Asus could already have thought about a way to circumvent it.
Though nothing is clear whether the laptop is a single or two separate units, there is a point in believing that water cooling unit is detachable from the laptop device, at least PC World also thinks so.

Asus also unveiled at the IFA show, the ROG G20, a new high-end gaming PC that the company claims the “most dominating” PC under 10 liters. Another interesting product the company displayed is RT-AC5300, the router with six antennae, claimed to be the world’s fastest Wi-Fi router ever.
