Asus ROG GX800 Features Dual GTX 1080s In SLI Plus Water Cooling, All This In A Laptop Form Factor
Asus ROG GX800 is an extreme laptop for the enthusiast who needs performance on the go. A single GTX 1080 might seem to be mainstream that is why it has two in SLI. You need something to cool those two GPUs so the Asus ROG GX800 also comes with water cooling base.

Here you can see the extent to which Asus has gone in order to create this powerhouse. I mean even the way things are placed seem like a work of art. Running on air the CPU runs at 3.7 GHz but switching to liquid cooling you get 4.4 GHz clock speed.
Same is the case for the GPUs, on air, you get 1771 MHz but switch to liquid cooling and that boots to 1821 which is very impressive indeed.

We can see from these numbers that the Asus ROG GX800 is a beast and is perfectly capable of running modern games at high settings and can even run VR applications pretty well.
At 4K the laptop can run pretty much all the games at 60 FPS and you can play Overwatch well above that sweet spot. If you are someone that is on the move then this is something that you might like considering that you have the money to buy one.
The Asus ROG GX800 is a beast but this kind of performance in such a form factor does not come cheap. The laptop cost $6,000 which I am sure not everyone can afford. There will be those who will tell me that they can make a better PC in half that budget and they would not be wrong.
