Overview of the ROG Strix GL702VM

The ROG Strix GL702VM is a 17.3-inch gaming notebook offering excellent performance, connectivity and intelligent cooling from its triple-fan setup.

Designed to be elegant and discreet in its brushed black aluminum, its ROG elements have been refined to the soft-red backlit keyboard, high-performance hardware and bespoke software.

Inside features the latest Intel 7th Generation quad-core processor, Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB graphics, up to 32GB DDR4 memory and best-of-both M.2 SATA SSD storage with large capacity HDD.

Users can choose between an UltraHD 4K IPS or Full HD IPS panels with a wide color gamut and crisp PPI. Both are anti-glare, virtually reflection-free, and feature ultra-wide viewing panels.

Connectivity includes fast 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet and plenty of side-mounted ports including three USB 3.0, mini-DP, HDMI and a card reader for convenience.

Product positioning

The GL702VM is ideal for professionals, entertainment fans and gamers who are predominantly on-the-road; requiring a smart, unique looking 17-inch notebook with uncompromising performance that’s still easily transportable.

Performance where it matters

The hardware combination chosen by ROG engineers is not just ideal for games, but photography, video and entertainment as well. The crisp Ultra HD 4K IPS display option is perfect for professional users who need multi/mega-tasking productivity that’s fast, yet power efficient.

The balance of an Intel 7th Gen quad-core processor, Nvidia GTX 1060 last generation’s GTX 980M, making this a huge generational upgrade and excellent hardware for portable gaming notebook buyers.

6GB, plenty of fast DDR4 memory and the combination of extreme performance PCI-E x4 SSD and large capacity HDD is makes it a viable all-day working, and all evening gaming notebook. 

Intel 7th Generation Processors

Intel has heavily optimized its 14nm process (14nm+) for the 7th Generation products with a 12% increase in process performance, giving a surprising jump over previous 6th Generation.

While instructions per clock (IPC) remains the same, there are improved clock speeds at the same or lower voltages. Combining these single core speed boosts with an enhanced Speed Shift technology gives a boost to short-burst responsiveness of everyday computing. 

Further enhancements were made to the dedicated graphics hardware and media processing. Specific additions to the codec lineup include decode support for 10-bit HEVC and 8/10-bit VP9 as well as encode support for 10-bit HEVC and 9-bit VP9. The video engine adds HDR support with tone mapping and Wide Color Gamut (Rec. 2020) is also included as displays support it. All 7th Generation products can decode and encode HEVC at up to 4K @ 120Mbps.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

Nvidia’s ‘Pascal’ generation of graphics cards turn the idea of ‘slower’ notebook graphics cards entirely on its head – the GTX 1060 6GB performs just as fast as its desktop counterpart. Packed with 1280 CUDA cores and 6GB of GDDR5 memory (8GHz effective) on a 192-bit bus, it yields exceptional performance for the native Full HD and WQHD-resolution gaming performance via external display.Despite being a ‘mainstream’ part, the GTX 1060 6GB performs close to N-key rollover support included.

Hyper-Cool: Triple-Fan, Copper Cooling

ROG laptops have often features two fans connected to the CPU and GPU via heatpipes that provide independent cooling. However, the GL702VM includes a third fan for the GPU, which acts as an additional boost to maximize thermal efficiency and ensure the GPU always runs at full speed, even during marathon gaming sessions and hotter ambient environments.

Red backlit gaming keyboard

The low-profile, 1.6mm travel scissor switch keys in chiclet layout gives a responsive feedback for a great typing experience, whether it’s for the working day or long hours gaming.

The red backlight matches the overall ROG theme and provides a soft glow in the dark, while its WASD keys are elegantly highlighted and 

UltraHD 4K or 75/120Hz Full HD with Nvidia G-Sync

The GL702VM display options meet a variety of use cases and user needs. Typically, Ultra HD buyers will be looking at productivity, multimedia and entertainment as much as gaming, with its exceptionally crisp 282 PPI giving pin-sharp visuals. While the GTX 1060 isn’t quite up to running games at 4K, the high PPI mitigates turning down the game settings from native resolution. The Full HD displays include an ultra-responsive 120Hz option for those who prefer fast action FPS titles.

 All display choices are IPS specification providing wide-viewing angles, great color and contrast and all include Nvidia G-Sync for smooth, tear-free gaming even below the native display frequency.

Gaming Software Package

ROG Gaming Center

Launched via a dedicated button on the keyboard, the ROG Gaming Center is a portal to ROG utilities, apps and tools. It’s a one-stop interface for monitoring and fine-tuning system components; for managing user-selected game profiles, keyboard profiles, macros and ASUS software direct from its easy user interface.

ROG GameFirst IV

The latest GameFirst IV delivers a new bar for fine-grained bandwidth control: four preset modes for software – optimization, priority, media streaming and file-sharing; five levels of priority control and manual bandwidth control.

This fourth edition software has been extended further adding a detailed diagnostics package that’s simply unavailable elsewhere: network monitor, bandwidth test and networking information help users clearly identify their network information and any potential bottlenecks.

Sonic Studio II

In its second edition, Sonic Studio is a central control for audio effects and profile management. In sync with the Xsplit software provided and dedicated recording button, there are optional enhancements to audio casting included too.
