ASUS's new gaming laptop is the world's first with a 300Hz display

165Hz? Pfft. 240Hz? That's nothing. ASUS welcomes you to 300Hz

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.
