As far as over the top hardware goes, a 24-inch laptop is probably right up there. You’d need thighs the size of Thor to get it sitting on your lap. Nevertheless that’s exactly what Asus has done with its latest ROG (Republic of Gamers) laptop. It looks like it’s been worth it in terms of performance as well, with this 24” beast raking in a higher 3DMark 11 benchmark score than the mighty GeForce GTX Titan X. That makes it the most powerful laptop on the planet.
Asus have claimed it is “the future of ultimate gaming laptops”, offering desktop beating performance in an all-in-one solution a fraction of the size. The laptop in question is still a concept machine, tucked away inside the Asus labs, but what graphics card solution Asus is using, it’s best in field stuff. The only single GPU graphics card which can beat this experimental laptop is the newly announced Pascal-powered GeForce GTX 1080.
Unfortunately Asus isn’t allowed to release the specs of the laptop, although it’s very likely there is either an early Polaris of Pascal GPU tucked inside there. Could this potentially be the first benchmark results of the inevitable GeForce GTX 1080M?
More on this is expected to be shown at Computex Taipei which begins at the end of this month. "Overclocked performance on the latest benchmarks and specs will all come in due time," said Asus. Unfortunately there’s no confirmed plans to bring this machine to market just yet, but as a proof of concept it shows where the notebook market could be heading soon.
