Kitguru got their hands on the ASUS ROG GX800, the gaming laptop with the docking station that provides watercooling. The design is unique and it certainly looks big enough to deal with the heat produced by a pair of desktop class GTX 1080s and an overclocked i7-6820HK. The laptop's cooling system links to the radiator and pump inside the docking station via a small port on the bottom of the laptop, which also has dual 330W power bricks to add extra power to the system. From the testing it seems ASUS really did do a great job, the four different profiles based on the amount of power and cooling available to the laptop do have an effect on performance which shows in the benchmarks. The price is going to be equally impressive, when ASUS finally releases the GX800.
"The model code suggests that GX800 is an upgrade of GX700, however that is wide of the mark. GX800 has a similar appearance to GX700 but the hardware is all new, starting with a pair of Nvidia GTX 1080 GPUs in SLI. Yes, two 1080s in a laptop, driving a 4K display for maximum gaming pleasure."

Not a fan of water cooling
Not a fan of water cooling but this makes me question sanity of Asus marketing. They should be fired.

As hideously grotesque and gargantuan this thing is! The most hideously grotesque and gargantuan thing will be the large gash it makes in the piggy bank! In fact it will totally fustigate that piggy into its constituent atoms and require one to second mortgage their house!
That thing looks like it came from a colonoscopy procedure and was removed before it could metastasize!
