Among the products that ASUS introduced in Technical Seminar is the ROG G501, an ultra slim gaming laptop that features the latest GTX960M. G501 is powered by the 4th-generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and the new NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960M graphics for an unrivalled gaming experience. This impressive power is supported by ASUS-exclusive Hyper Cool technology with dual independent fans, delivering smooth, stable performance for both gaming and professional content creation.

In addition, G501 can be paired with PCI Express® x4 (PCIe® x4) solid-state disks (SSDs) for data-transfer speeds of approximately 1400MB/s — more than twice (2X) as fast as SATA III SSDs or 16X faster than SATA III hard disk drives! Optional Onboard Intel Thunderbolt™ technology provides a single-cable data and graphics interface with speeds of up to 10Gbit/s — twice the bandwidth of USB 3.0.
