ASUS has just unveiled the world's first gaming laptop with an incredible 300Hz display, with the new flagship ROG Zephyrus S GX701.

ASUS's new ROG Zephyrus S GX701 will be the first with a 300Hz display and will roll into gamers' hands next month, with the 300Hz refresh rate joined by a 3ms GtG response time.

The company hasn't confirmed which panel manufacturer is making the 300Hz panel for ASUS, but we should expect it to be a normal 240Hz display that overclocks up to 300Hz. Impressive nonetheless.

The new ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX701 will be packed with NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 graphics, which will be clocked at up to 1230MHz in 100W Turbo mode.

The current prototype ROG Zephyrus S GX502 come in both 15- and 17-inch models, and will also have a 300Hz panel but their GPUs will get knocked down to the RTX 2070, which will be clocked at up to 1540MHz at 115W in Turbo mode.

ASUS will include NVIDIA G-SYNC support on the new 300Hz panels, too.
