The new Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701

At its IFA 2019 presentation in Berlin, Asus unveiled a couple of new gaming notebooks, including the Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701 which comes with a 300Hz screen with Nvidia G-Sync support.

It appears that 144Hz, 165Hz, and 240Hz screens won't be the high-end for a long time as Asus has unveiled a new notebook that comes with a 17-inch screen with 300Hz refresh rate, 3ms response time, and a 100 percent sRGB. While Asus was keen to claim "the world's first 300Hz screen notebook" title, Acer also equipped its own Predator Triton 500 notebook with a similar, if not the same screen.

In addition to the 300Hz screen, the updated Zephyrus S GX701 also comes with a 9th gen Core i7 CPU, Geforce RTX 2080 GPU to drive that screen, as well as other high-end hardware and gaming-oriented features. Some of those features include Active Aerodynamic System, GPU Switch, Aura Sync and more, as pictured by over at the IFA 2019 event.

Asus also claims it managed to stuff all that into a 15-inch size chassis, which means the notebook will have slim bezels for its 17-inch screen.

Asus did not reveal a lot of information but did say that it plans more 300Hz equipped notebooks, including a smaller 15-inch Zephyrus S GX502, as well as 15- and 17-inch versions of the Strix SCAR III notebook, and the Zephyrus S GX701 should come in October. While Asus did not talk about the price, bear in mind that the 144Hz version starts at $2,500.
