ASUS reveals more of its watercooled ROG GX700 laptop

Probably one of the strangest products ASUS showcased this year was the GX700 watercooled laptop. This 17.3" gaming laptop features an unlocked Intel Core i7-6820HK "Skylake" processor, the GeForce GTX 980 laptop video card from NVIDIA and a docking station with watercooling.
Judging from the reception since IFA 2015, the ROG GX700 ultra-performance gaming laptop has been deemed one of the most highly-anticipated laptops this year, and arguably this decade (ROG is turning 10 soon!). GX700 has a game-changer which has opened the door for laptops to have a whole new level of cooling and thus potential for the highest possible performance. The key feature to set itself apart from the rest is the world’s first ever water-cooling system in a laptop, which is actually more crucial than a full desktop due to the compact size. Such a system can maximize the gaming performance, overclockability and thermal performance while fully utilizing the overclockable Intel K-Series Skylake processor, and the very first desktop GeForce GTX GPU in a notebook form factor – Nvidia GTX 980 (not GTX 980M). Here, we want to treat you to some high-quality pictures from every angle! Enjoy.
The photos below provide a glimpse of the laptop, the dock and the liquid cooling loop inside the dock. It looks like a cool gimmick for rich gamers but I wonder how well this holds up over time.

Expect the GX700 laptop to hit the market later this quarter, pricing is still a mystery.
