    ROG website updated, many new info added!

    Including info about the cooling:

    The G701VIK had an acceptable cooling and it seems Asus improved that even further!

    Oh and claimed performance:

    Also, thank God Asus is not using the Devil's pitchfork for the CPU cooling!

    I am sure the speakers will be better and fans are less noisy than G701vik. It seems it will be an ideal one for me. My G701vik is already for sale:)

    Why on Earth did you buy the G701VIK? It's not a bad laptop, but Chimera was already in the backyard...

    Well the new one costs here 3300€ and I bought it for 1900€. 3 months old laptop. It was only because of the price. I can sell it easily I believe.

    also same Cpu and Gpu, I didnt see much difference. Only fans bother me now.

    Maybe they'll change after the initial run, or they were saying 7820HK because they were still under NDA about Coffeelake?

    So probably leaning more towards the former, they'll have an initial run with KL before going to CL

    Maybe they'll have a sweet deal on it to move kbl units.
