Inside, the ASUS Chimera rocks Intel's Core i7-7820K which hits a max CPU clock of 4.3GHz, while the GTX 1080 reaches 1974MHz. ASUS has included a built-in Xbox Wireless feature that lets you use your Xbox controller on Windows 10 without the need of the huge USB adapter.

ASUS' new Chimera gaming laptop starts at $2000, but it can be configured with up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM and super-fast PCIe-based storage as well. ASUS simply teased the new Chimera gaming laptop @ IFA 2017, with no detailed specifications on it just yet.
