Touted as “The world’s first gaming laptop” to have a 144Hz refresh rate, the ASUS ROG Chimera features a 17.3″ 1920×1080 panel with a 7ms response time (panel type not reported, but with that response time, it is almost certainly IPS or VA) and G-SYNC support, along with a factory overclocked Intel i7-7820HK CPU @4.3GHz, and an Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 GPU that can reach boost clocks of up to 1974MHz.
Little else is currently known about the ROG Chimera, but we’ll post more details on its specs, pricing, and release date as they become available.
