Asus Introduces new "dual" gaming laptop, the G70!


ASUS has acquired a ?Multi Dual-Engine? architecture in designing the G70 with a duplex structure in its major system components, including dual graphics engine, dual hard drive bays and dual fan systems.

Together with high-definition visual and audio capabilities, the G70 sets a new standard of mobile gaming, at the level of extreme performance, offering the capability of dedicated gaming rigs in a portable package.

Dual Graphics Engine

At the pinnacle of performance in a portable platform, the G70 features not one but two independent Nvidia 8700M GT graphics engines. Operating in parallel via SLI technology, and equipped with 1024MB GDDR3 of dedicated physical memory, the G70 is built to please the hardcore gamers with unparalleled fluid, stutter-free actions.

Dual Hard Disk

The G70 has enough drive bays to accommodate two hard disks, for a combined mass storage capacity up to 640GB. Not only is this more than ample storage for one?s media library, it is also an additional option to separate gaming content from other media and files.

Dual Core CPU

Powering the G70, is a choice of Intel Core 2 Duo, and Core 2 Extreme processors, the latter being Intel?s highest performance CPUs. For user friendliness, the G70 features ASUS Direct Console software with which the user can manage the G70?s many features and even select CPU performance levels between Standard, Turbo and Turbo Extreme. In concert with ultra fast dual core processor, dual graphics engine and dual hard drive storage, the G70 has been tested to achieve 3DMark 2006 score of 8,116 (Vista Ultimate 32-bit, 1024x768) and 8,208 (Vista Ultimate 64-bit, 1024x768).

Dual Display

Designed as the highest performing no-compromise gaming notebook, the G70 is equipped with a 17? WUXGA (1920x1200) Full HD display to match its processing muscle. Its primary LCD screen boasts an ultra-quick 8ms response time to eliminate ghosting as well as dual lamp for high-brightness visual comfort. Supported by a secondary screen that displays critical system information, in-coming email and message alerts and personalized messages ensures a disruption-free game-play when gaming in full screen mode.

Dual Sound Power

To complete the high-definition suite, the G70 is equipped with top-notch audio features including, Dolby Home Theater and Altec Lansing speakers. A total of 4 speakers are built-in and strategically placed at 4 corners of the notebook for the best 3-D surround effects. In addition, the front speakers have flashing lights that change colors with sound volume variation for an animated enhanced game ambience.

Dual Support Hardware

The G70 is not only about power, it is also in making that power useable. Gamers who are accustomed to operating high performance desktop systems will appreciate the G70?s dual cooling fans. Added convenience is provided by dual mode touch pad that also provides easy access to multimedia controls as well as additional hotkeys (including a four-way key) that can be configured for a tailored gaming experience.

Emotive Design

Every inch of the G70 is designed to match the spirit of gaming; with hexagonal and aluminium effect textures, the G70 evokes high performance similar to that of a sports car. These design flourishes are complemented by interactive LED lighting system arrayed strategically placed around the casing of the G70 that is not only attractive but informative as well. For instance, LED lights at the rear of the unit change colour with fan speed, and that on the side of the display can be configured to flash when the CPU is under load.
