The Big Daddy: Chimera G703

This beast is packed with the latest 8th Generation Core i9 processor (YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT) with up to 4.80GHz Turbo Boost which is coupled with an Nvidia GTX1070 or a GTX1080 with a 144HZ display. You can configure it to your hunger for the upper echelons of gaming by configuring it with 64GB of ram, 2TB of HDD paired with 512GB of PCIEx4 NVME SSD and a discrete Nvidia Geforce GTX1080 with 8GB DDR5X ram.


This is the first ever laptop to feature the 144Hz refresh rate that is paired with 100% sRGB IPS Panel and G-sync for that silky smooth visuals. The keyboard now features ASUS RGB Aura Sync so it can be synced with compatible products. The new fan gets a boost with 12V fan higher fan speed and 45% better airflow that’s equipped with better fins to better the airflow resistance.

The Slim Shady: Zephyrus GX501

This laptop personally caught my attention. This is currently the world’s thinnest gaming laptop and the world’s most powerful Ultrabook with a GTX1080 that features the ROG Aerodynamic Active System (AAS) and is able to power Intel’s most demanding CPUs even with GTX1080 under intense temperatures. The Zephyrus takes another step forward this year by powering itself up with Intel’s Hexa-Core i7-8850H and ups the display to an ultra fast 144Hz refresh rate with and IPS panel with G-sync

The M
The ROG Zephyrus M GM501 differs in the aspects to give you a longer experience. In the M version, it has 3 times better battery life and a new Optimus mode that can be manually switched on and off that lets you turn the GPU off to increase your usage when you’re not gaming. It also packs the ROG Exclusive Active Aerodynamic system that’s engineered with infused liquid crystal cooling polymers to to make the fan bigger by 30% and airflow by 15%. The improved thermodynamics are also packed with Anti-dust thermal tunnels for maximum cooling.

It still maintains the 8th generation Intel Core i7-8850 Hexa-core Processor, 2TB HDD, 512GB PCIEx4, Nvme SSD, 32GB of DDR4 ram and a 144HZ IPS Panel with G-Sync.
