Ultimate Gaming Platform
Everyone deserves great gaming. That's why we created the fast, powerful GeForce® GTX 1050. Now, you can turn your laptop into a true gaming rig, powered by NVIDIA Pascal™—the most advanced GPU architecture ever created. It's loaded with innovative NVIDIA Game Ready technologies that let every gamer experience the latest titles in their full glory.

Performance
This advanced GPU boosts performance in high-definition games compared to previous-generation GPUs. It's created with the latest technologies and supports DirectX 12 features to deliver super-fast, smooth, power-efficient gameplay.

Game-Changing Technologies
Capture and share professional-quality in-game photos with NVIDIA Ansel™ technology. In addition, watch every game come alive with NVIDIA GameWorks™ innovations that provide a true cinematic experience.

Thermal: HyperCool Technology Improves Durability
ASUS-exclusive HyperCool technology comprises of the Anti-Dust Cooling (ADC) system and Fan Overboost technology to ensure exceptional cooling during intense gaming. Furthermore, cooling is also improved by the patented trapezoid-cut lid and intelligent parallel fan placement.

• Anti-Dust Cooling To Prolong Component Lifespan.
• Powerful Dual Fan Design.
• Fan Overboost Technology.
• Patented Trapezoid-cut Lid.

Anti-Dust Tunnels
The ADC system has an exclusive internal design that forces dust particles and dirt to exit the chassis through two anti-dust tunnels located at the edges of the fans. This prevents the thermal fins from becoming caked in grime, preserving performance in the long run to improve both system longevity and reliability.

Fan Overboost
The system can automatically adjust fan speeds according to CPU and GPU temperatures, but you also have the option to switch between Fan Overboost, Balanced, and Silent modes to suit the situation at hand. Fan Overboost is the most aggressive setting, providing the fastest fan speeds to fully exploit the power of FX705. Silent mode curbs fan noise, so it’s perfect when you’re surfing the net, getting work done, or watching a movie.

Optimised Airflow
Every part of FX705 serves to improve system stability and efficiency. The dual fans are symmetrically placed to maximise airflow through the system. They pump warm air out the back, where the patented trapezoid-cut lid avoids interference with the exhaust vents, increasing thermal efficiency by up to 25% over traditional designs.

Audio: Immersive DTS Surround Sound
DTS Headphone: X™ technology delivers immersive, high-fidelity 7.1-channel virtual surround sound for theater-quality audio, even when you’re using a headset. It features optimised settings for games, sports, and movies, and has a built-in equaliser for additional fine-tuning.

• 7.1-Channel Virtual Surround.
• Optimised Game/ Movies/ Sports Audio Profiles.
• Audiophile-grade Equaliser.

Wi-Fi: Faster Speeds, Wider Coverage
FX705 features one of the fastest Wi-Fi standards available — the latest Intel 802.11ac Wave 2 boasts data transfer rates of up to an incredible 1.7Gbps — 12X faster than baseline 802.11b/g/n! Additionally, the 2x2 MIMO configuration provides up to 30% wider coverage than a 1x1 setup. Stream your favourite movies in high-resolution or play online with fewer connection drops, even if FX705 is farther away from your router.

• Up to 12x Faster Than Baseline BGN.
• Up to 1.7Gbps Transfer Speeds.
• 30% Wider Coverage.

Intel® Optane™ Memory

Gaming on PCs used to be restricted to desktop computers equipped with a dedicated graphics card connected to a display, much in the same way that a games console works with a TV. Recent advances in technology have enabled manufacturers to equip laptops with increasing levels of graphics power without them being too bulky or heavy.
