Attention, Enthusiasts: Get Ready for a New Breed of Gaming Notebooks

by Gaurav Agarwal

Meet the world’s first notebooks built for enthusiasts.

They’re especially engineered with premium components that set new performance benchmarks. And what’s more, you can push the performance envelope further: These notebooks are built to overclock.

A long list of achievements, never seen before on notebooks, includes lightning-fast 7 Gbps memory, 4-8 phase power supplies, overclocking headroom, unlocked GPUs and CPUs, fan control and to top it all off — a desktop GeForce GTX 980 GPU.

Full Desktop Performance

The unrivaled efficiency of the Maxwell architecture combined with system innovations enables us to put the same GeForce GTX 980 2,048-core GPU into these notebooks. The result is glorious: For the first time, extreme desktop gaming — without any compromises — has come to notebooks.

The experiences are nothing short of incredible. Play the latest games — such as The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, Grand Theft Auto V, Mad Max, Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain and The Killing Floor 2 — at maxed out graphics settings. Imagine gaming across three displays in full HD for a completely immersive gaming experience. Yep, with these notebooks you can do that, too.


Overclocker’s Delight

These notebooks are an overclocker’s delight. For the first time on notebooks, you can control the fan to trade-off acoustics for performance. With unlocked GPUs, there are no ceilings to turbocharging your performance. And extreme cooling solutions combined with meticulously designed power delivery systems give you the added headroom to push your clocks into uncharted territory.

World’s First Virtual Reality Notebooks

Packed with the graphics horsepower to surpass virtual reality’s steep demands of 90 FPS, low-latency gameplay, these are the world’s first notebooks that meet the recommended spec for Oculus Rift. Featuring support for the full set of GameWorks VR technologies, they deliver fast, responsive and immersive VR that you can put in your backpack.


These notebooks will come in all your favorite enthusiast brands and will be available with NVIDIA G-SYNC display technology for a smooth, tear-free gaming experience.   

Along with Aorus, ASUS, MSI and  Clevo, they’ll be available from a number of local gaming brands such as Origin PC, Maingear, Falcon NW, Digital Storm , Sager, XMG, PC Specialist, LDLC, Hyperbook, G-Tune, AfterShock, BossMonster, Metabox, ThunderRobot and Terrans Force.

We can’t wait to see what you’ll do with this glorious new breed of gaming machines.

    I’m not sure that 4K gaming is really that interesting. I would sacrifice that feature and stick to 1080p (or even 720p) and trade it for more polygon detail, smarter tesselation and better physics.

    Imagine a proper FPS or FP adventure game with real water that splashes as you walk in it, be it a lake or a muddy swamp or a spectacular looking waterfall that would make Skyrim pale in comparison.

    Imagine more realistic looking trees, foliage and grass that is dense and nice all the way to the horizon. And mud and other surfaces that looks like something more than just a texture painted upon a flat or blocky surface.

    Or smoke effects, with some imagination, one could create interesting spells with exotic effects or uncannily real thick volumetric fog that brings atmosphere to the game.

    Even less conspicuous details such as realistic glass shattering could bring life to a game. Imagine a big house or palace made of glass, then in all of a sudden an explosion happens and the screen gets filled with billions of pieces of shattered glass bouncing around like it was unrealistically realistic and sparkling almost like diamonds in the sunlight from outside mixed with wriggly smoke.

    It feels like it would make more sense to improve such things rather than just crank up the screen resolution which adds pretty much nothing to the atmosphere of the game.
