ASUS revealed a slew of new devices at IFA 2017, including this beastly laptop. The ASUS ROG Chimera is no joke, boasting extreme internal specs for high-end gaming, but it also comes with a few neat tricks. It's the world's first gaming laptop with a 144Hz refresh rate display, rocking NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology and a 7ms response time. The feature set should give games an incredibly smooth appearance on screen and in motion, even if the display maxes out at 1080p.
Powering the 144Hz display is a factory-overclocked Intel Core i7-7820HK processor, which hits 4.3GHz out of the box. Complete with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, you could easily hook up a different monitor if you'd rather trade the blistering refresh rate for resolution instead, and still hit AAA games on higher settings.
Additionally, this is one of the first laptops to support Xbox Wireless natively. You won't need to use a dongle or a USB cable to connect Xbox Wireless-certified accessories to this laptop. Compatible controllers and headsets will simply just work as they do on Xbox today.
There's not a great deal of information out there about this laptop thus far, but as soon as we get it, you'll be the first to know!
