    EDIT: Confirmed the name of this model will be Asus GX800

    Specs:
    - 18.4 inch display
    - Nvidia G-sync
    - 4K Resolution
    - Computex version used dual GTX980 / likely to launch with dual GTX 1080
    - unnamed quad core i7 CPU clocked at 4.4GHz
    - dual 330W PSU (660W)
    - on watercooling dock performance reportedly 236% faster (or should we say gimped by -236% when you remove from the dock)
    - MechTAG proprietary mechanical keys

    This looks to be water cooling ports like the GX700

    Briefcase computer. AIOBI (All In One, Batteries Included). Pull it in a case with wheels like many business travelers.

    At 16:9 (1.78) aspect ratio, 23.8" diagonal is ~20.74" × ~11.67". With bezels, it squeezes into a case that fits in a ~22" × ~14" × ~9" airline carry-on limit.

    At 19:8 (2.37) aspect ratio, 23.8" diagonal is ~21.93" × ~9.25". So 2560×1080 screens may not fit cases that fit in a ~22" × ~14" × ~9" airline carry-on limit.

    To my knowledge price has not yet been announced, but the GX700 launched at around $3K, which is around the upper end of what even enthusiasts would be willing to spend.

    If they announce $5k MSRP, the product would be seen as a joke.
