    Sadly, there will be no "703VS," only "503VS." As least not for now or til then.

    I saw that on Laptopmedia but that makes absolutely no sense. Either way, whether it's 15" or 17", they better update that thermal system.

    I'm actually hoping that the reason why the 1060 model isn't out yet is because Asus realized that their rinky dink thermal setup from the 502/702 was only efficient enough to properly cool a 1050. I am very surprised they didn't at least go with a 1050ti though. It actually doesn't make any sense.

    Maybe they designed a new thermal system for the 1060 model which is why it's not available yet.

    Point taken! I am really eager to see how well the GL503/703 Trad/Hero/Scar will handle its thermal. comparing to the rival Msi GE63/73VR Raider since the Raider cooling system is really amazing so far.

    i doubt you'll find a beefy cooling system for the 1060.

    the 12v fans will do the heavy lifting. They'll spin faster and louder to take away the heat.

    At best, you'll see the cooling system you see on their GL503 page...

    Be thankful you don't have a Macbook Pro cooling system with their rinkydink heatsink fan

    To be honest it is shame to advertise this as a proper cooling setup. Simply wauu

    This looks a decent one although I think that Cpu will run quite hot. https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ROG-Strix-GL702VI/

    I wonder what would happen if you cut the shared heatpipes on a 1060 system.
    I'm guessing the cpu wouldn't overheat as much during heavy cpu+gpu tasks, but the gpu would have insufficient cooling.

    If you only cut one of the 2 heatpipes, less gpu heat would transfer to the cpu as well.

    The hot gtx980 laptop also had shared heatpipes, though thicker and wider.

    Also, let's not forget one of the issues that cause bad thermal management is the portion of the lid covers the vent. Here are some pictures, comparing the vents on 502, Zephyrus and the 503 Asus_GL502VM_Ansicht6.jpg asus_rog_gx501_zephyrus_03.jpg ROG-Strix-SCAR-Edition-1_Computex.jpg

    This is exactly why I think the new GL503 series won't suffer from heat issues as much as the GL502 series.

    Didn't they also realize that the 3rd fan on the 702 made things worse?
