The Future of Ultimate Gaming Laptops - A Glimpse

Movies are full of imagination and creativity, you get the sense that given time - anything is possible. From helicarriers to killer robots with AI, it all seems plausible and should be upon us in the not-too-distant future. Well, Marty McFly and Doc seem to have traveled to an alternate future where technology advanced much faster than ours, because I don't see any real hoverboards or flying cars with flux capacitors running on garbage.

Despite all the things we don't have yet, we are making leaps and bounds. Even though you may not realize it, there are actually many things we did manage to actualize from that same movie: persoanl drones, mobile payment, wearables, video phones, video glasses, and don't forget hands-free gaming! It's all about incremental advances, and every once in a while - a significant leap.

ROG is making such a leap as we speak, R&D has agreed to let us peek inside the secret labs to see what the future holds. Of the small bits of info we are allowed to disclose, we are already excited!

What we can say is that one of the highlights from the lab is an overclockable gaming laptop that will rival even gaming desktops. We were told it is a concept machine and thus they are still in the process of making it even more powerful. The exclusive info about to be revealed is without overclocking but is already faster than any laptop on the planet (not including alternate futures or dimensions). Without overclocking this beast can score almost 21K (Performance) in 3DMark11, edging out even the mighty GTX Titan X in this benchmark!

 

In all likelyhood they are talking about a mobile Pascal GPU.

The only SKU i'm aware of is the GP104-200-A1 / GP104-PS-NB

Whatever it is, it's SLI. There's no way a single mobule GPU is doing that. It's either SLI desktop GPU's in a notebook (ala mobile GTX 980) or SLI 1080M.

I'm with you, don't think the jump to 1080 is going to give that big a boost in performance

To me, once you get SLi in notebooks they are no longer that

Just a portable desktop

But still impressive what they can squeeze into a relatively small space.

I might be tempted with the 1060M
