Gamers are some of the most demanding consumers in their demands for system
performance. To answer this need, ASUS has acquired a “Multi Dual-Engine”
architecture in designing the G70 with a duplex structure in its major system
components, including dual graphics engine, dual hard drive bays and dual fan
systems. Together with high-definition visual and audio capabilities, the G70
sets a new standard of mobile gaming, at the level of extreme performance,
offering the capability of dedicated gaming rigs in a portable package.

Dual Graphics Engine
At the pinnacle of performance in a portable platform, the G70 features not one
but two independent Nvidia 8700M GT graphics engines. Operating in parallel via
SLI technology, and equipped with 1024MB GDDR3 of dedicated physical memory, the
G70 is built to please the hardcore gamers with unparalleled fluid, stutter-free
actions.

Dual Hard Disk
The G70 has enough drive bays to accommodate two hard disks, for a combined mass
storage capacity up to 640GB. Not only is this more than ample storage for one’s
media library, it is also an additional option to separate gaming content from
other media and files.

Dual Core CPU
Powering the G70, is a choice of Intel Core 2 Duo, and Core 2 Extreme
processors, the latter being Intel’s highest performance CPUs. For user
friendliness, the G70 features ASUS Direct Console software with which the user
can manage the G70’s many features and even select CPU performance levels
between Standard, Turbo and Turbo Extreme. In concert with ultra fast dual core
processor, dual graphics engine and dual hard drive storage, the G70 has been
tested to achieve 3DMark 2006 score of 8,116 (Vista Ultimate 32-bit, 1024×768)
and 8,208 (Vista Ultimate 64-bit, 1024×768).
 

Dual Display

Designed as the highest performing
no-compromise gaming notebook, the G70 is equipped with a 17” WUXGA
(1920×1200) Full HD display to match its processing muscle. Its primary
LCD screen boasts an ultra-quick 8ms response time to eliminate ghosting
as well as dual lamp for high-brightness visual comfort. Supported by a
secondary screen that displays critical system information, in-coming
email and message alerts and personalized messages ensures a
disruption-free game-play when gaming in full screen mode.

Dual Sound Power
To complete the high-definition suite, the G70 is equipped with top-notch audio
features including, Dolby Home Theater and Altec Lansing speakers. A total of 4
speakers are built-in and strategically placed at 4 corners of the notebook for
the best 3-D surround effects. In addition, the front speakers have flashing
lights that change colors with sound volume variation for an animated enhanced
game ambience.
 

Dual Support Hardware

The G70 is not only about power, it
is also in making that power useable. Gamers who are accustomed to
operating high performance desktop systems will appreciate the G70’s
dual cooling fans. Added convenience is provided by dual mode touch pad
that also provides easy access to multimedia controls as well as
additional hotkeys (including a four-way key) that can be configured for
a tailored gaming experience.

Emotive Design
Every inch of the G70 is designed to match the spirit of gaming; with hexagonal
and aluminium effect textures, the G70 evokes high performance similar to that
of a sports car. These design flourishes are complemented by interactive LED
lighting system arrayed strategically placed around the casing of the G70 that
is not only attractive but informative as well. For instance, LED lights at the
rear of the unit change colour with fan speed, and that on the side of the
display can be configured to flash when the CPU is under load.
