ASUS is working on new versions of the ROG and TUF lineup of laptops that is incorporating AMD’s Ryzen 3000 series processors and NVIDIA’s recently launched GeForce GTX 1660 Ti distinct graphics. Asus ASUS ROG G703 (G703GI) is a stylish and powerfulthereby making it possible to store ample amount of data.All the above features ensure that you breeze through all your tasks throughout the day.
Assus ROG comes with:
- 17.3″ ultra smooth 144Hz 3ms IPS-Type display with ultra-slim 5mm bezel
- GeForce® GTX 1060 graphics
- 8th-Generation Intel Core i7-8750H (up to 3.9GHz)
- 256GB PCIe NVMe solid state drive + 1TB HDD; 16GB 2666MHz DDR4 RAM
- Customizable ASUS AURA Sync RGB gaming keyboard with RGB ROG logo and lighting bar
The laptop models in question are the ASUS ROG GU502DU and the ASUS TUF FX505DU. Both these versions were found in listings on 3DMark by TUM APISAK. While ASUS was known to be preparing TUF series laptops with Ryzen 3000 series chips, they did not mention any type of support for NVIDIA’s discrete graphics cards. The most recent listing reveals that these models would really use different NVIDIA Turing GPUs.
According to the listing, the ASUS ROG GU502DU would come with the Ryzen 7 3750H CPU which is a 4 core and 8 thread part clocked at 2.3 GHz foundation and 4.0 GHz boost clocks. It’s based on a 12nm process node and has a TDP of 35W. Now the chip does feature Vega 10 graphics with 640 SPs and a clock speed of 1200 MHz but the notebook itself is packed with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q discrete graphics card. This is the first time we have observed a mobile version of the recently established GTX 1660 Ti graphics card.
There are no specs mentioned but considering NVIDIA has kept specs Parity of the background and mobility variants, we can anticipate the mobility variations of the GTX 1660 Ti to feature similar core specs of 1536 CUDA cores and 6 GB of GDDR6 VRAM however, the clock speeds may vary on the models because there would be equally Max-Q and non-Max-Q variations.
