Asus Rog Strix Chimera Edition
Asus Rog Chimera is the Worlds First Laptop which comes with a 17.3 Inch Full HD Wide view monitor and also has the Nvidia G-Sync technology along with a 144 Hz refresh rate and 7 ms response time monitor.
The 144 Hz refresh rate display is the first on any laptop, and with G-Sync support it can really make the game play smoother without any tearing seen on the low refresh rate monitors on the gaming laptops.
Asus has started a new trend and most other manufacturers will be following it in the coming months. Though the G-SYNC and high refresh rate monitors are damn expensive and may not be available in the mainstream laptops even in the coming months.
The laptop is powered by an unlocked Intel 8th Generation Kaby Lake Refresh processor Intel Core i7-7820HK which offers much better performance compared to the last generation of Intel processors.
The new Intel i7 – 7820 HK has an incredible 4.3 GHz clock speed and it can be further overclocked. The Laptop is powered by the mighty Nvidia GTX 1080 graphics card with a maximum Boost clock speed of 1947 MHz.
The laptop runs on the Windows 10 and can easily max out any latest AAA title with ease.
