    At least that is what they told the press during IFA and also that is what they are saying on their own website:

    Hopefully this claim will be true :)

    If it can keep cool and have relatively quiet fans it'll be very tempting, I've got to see some reviews of this thing.

    Did Asus show Gl702vi at IFA as well? It seems that they enlarged the case and put proper gtx1080 instead of max-Q.

    I'm confused why this seems to unrealistic. G2G response time measurements are always the lowest and "best" which is why manufacturers always list their response times using G2G timings. It makes sense that Asus would list this response time as it is really good compared to almost all IPS panels on the laptop market.

    The 120hz AUO TN panel I have in my laptop is listed as 5ms, and is probably measured in G2G. 7ms for this Asus seems really reasonable and easily achievable given most desktop 144hz IPS panels are around 4~5ms G2G out of the box. Most 144-165hz TN panels are 1~3ms G2G.

    Not really. That panel has 5ms b2w and around 20ms g2g.

    You have it backwards. W2B is always a faster response time than G2G.

    From Asus website :

    Cool under load and composed under pressure
    Instead of slimming down, the Chimera beefs up to 51 mm thick to make room for an elaborate cooling system. For this class of laptop, we think it’s worth adding a little thickness for cooling that helps expand overclocking headroom and maintain higher clock speeds while gaming. The Chimera is still portable enough to stuff into a backpack if you want to take it on the road.

    Four radiators sit behind exhaust vents flanking the rear corners. Each one is lined with fins measuring just 0.1 mm thick—half the thickness of our previous designs. Making the fins thinner allows us to add more of them, increasing the surface area for heat dissipation by 16%. And that still leaves larger gaps between the fins, reducing air resistance by 7%. A pair of blowers with dual outlets apiece generate airflow over the radiators; running on 12V power lets them spin 20% faster than typical 5V fans, which further improves airflow. To ensure consistent cooling performance over time, the fan housings have special channels that prevent dust and other fine particles from building up in the radiators.

    A network of heatpipes channels thermal energy away from the CPU and GPU, and the Chimera also features an extra pipe for the circuitry powering those chips. Dedicated cooling keeps the power components under 80°C to improve long-term reliability.

    BIG words. I wonder if it will live upto it.

    Hope someone can get the unit to make a review unit already!

    You need to go read up on response times and how they're measured. G2G produces the fastest response time results ALWAYS and that is why manufacturers put it on the box or website ad to attract consumers. 5ms on this panel is most definitely the G2G response time, with other response times of the panel most definitely being higher. This Asus may have 7ms G2G, but will most definitely have higher response times of other color shifts. Not even in the desktop monitor world does IPS beat out TN response times yet.

    https://displaylag.com/exposed-input-lag-vs-response-time/

    Right from displaylag.com article

    What is response time?
    The response time of a display is how quickly it can change its pixels from black-to-white or gray-to-gray. A display while turned on usually shows a black screen when nothing is being shown on it, and the time it takes to display a gray or white pixel from this state is recorded as its response time rating. So those pretty logos you see on the boxes of displays that state “2ms”, “6ms”, and so on reflect this measurement. It simply dictates how fast a display can go from a black-to-white or grey-to-grey pixel.




    Why IS there black-to-white and gray-to-gray? Why not stick to one?
    Simple answer: money. Display manufacturers know that going from black-to-white takes longer than it does for it to go from gray-to-gray. It makes more sense for them to advertise the fastest number, because it makes the display look more attractive in the consumer’s eyes.

    Dude, it always takes longer going G2G. Go look at every review on Notebookcheck and it will confirm this. B2B is always listed by the manufacturers as the response time.

    Here's an example.
