E-mail Print PDF

IFA Sees Asus reveal the ROG Chimera, a gaming laptop featuring what the company claims is an industry first-- a 144Hz 17.3-inch display complete with Nvidia G-Sync technology.

Asus ROG ChimeraAs typical of gaming laptops the Chimera is a hefty 51mm-thick machine, allowing it to carry components such as an unlocked Intel Core i7-7820HK processor and desktop-class GeForce GTX 1080 GPU. Such specs promise to power ultra-smooth graphics running on the 144Hz display.

To keep temperatures down, the chassis carries four radiators sitting behind exhaust fins flanking the rear corners. Each radiator has fins 0.1mm thick, increasing the surface area for heat dissipation for more efficient cooling. Also included are x2 fans running on 12V power.

In addition, the laptop offers an upgraded keyboard with a new layout, longer (2.5mm) key travel and per-key RGB lighting. Audio comes through a x4 speakers with 10W output or, for headphone users, an ESS Sabre headphone DAC able to support 32-bit/384kHz audio.

Asus does not say when Chimera ships, since such details are "coming soon."
