From it's exceptionally stylish design to the premium build quality and the sheer impressive performance that comes from a brilliant display and the power of an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 - the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX701 for most will remain a dream. Hefty price-tag aside it's a glimpse at what's possible when form and function combine.

Bringing it all together is the truly impressive display, which is listed as being ‘Pantone Validated’. A term that we hadn’t even heard of until this review, but in our tests the 17.3-inch IPS panel provided some of the best image quality we’ve ever seen from a laptop display. From the 100% sRGB colour-output to the brightness and contrast to the wider-than-expected viewing angle it’s commendable that ASUS were able to not only create a sleek and stylish looking ultrathin gaming laptop, but also pair it up with a vibrant display that matches.

Where it gets interesting though is with the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX701’s discrete graphics option. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 (with Max-Q design) comes from the NVIDIA’s most recent line of RTX cards that offer up real-time ray-tracing in modern high-end games in addition to the usual performance boost over the previous generation. A line, the GTX 10 series, that has been a staple part of the gaming laptop market for a couple of years now. With RTX-powered laptops now popping up, getting to see the RTX 2080 in action on a thin, portable, and impressive laptop was as they say, ‘of great interest’.
