    A smidgen more info :)

    "...hardware in the system comes via Intel’s Core i7-7820HK, the quad core mobile part that allows overclocking (ASUS states up to 4.3 GHz), and a GTX 1080 8GB mobile graphics module with a maximum boost of 1974 MHz.

    ...At this point ASUS is being cagy at the rest of the specifications..., so we’ll update this post when we get something more or some hands on time. Pricing and launch were not discussed.

    Added some photos of the screen to!prove that the screen is 144 hz @ G-Sync capable.
    Pretty impressive from Asus, they not just got a panel working at 144 hz, but they also got the G-Sync certification from Nvidia before the premiere. MSI really should learn a thing or two from them.

    I would expect that clock to be available with Turbo gear Extreme settings (factory VGA overclock from the ROG Center software)

    7820HK, huh? Didn't want to risk it with a desktop part, or just didn't bother

    I think only Clevo cares about desktop cpu. (And MSI for some selected enthusiasts)

    I guess the primary ASUS market doesn't care about desktop parts either. I mean, I wouldn't, but this thing is bigger than the Tornado

    Asus says:
    "17.3" (16:9) LED backlit FHD (1920x1080) 144Hz Anti-Glare Panel with 72% NTSC with 178˚ wide-viewing angle display"

    this Will be an IPS panel with fast response time (35 ms -> 7 ms).
    144 hz IPS panel with no ghosting...I like that !
