Built around a 17.3-inch IPS panel screen with 1920x1080 resolution and AMD FreeSync support, the Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC uses AMD's desktop Ryzen 7 1700 CPU, Radeon RX 580 graphics card with 4GB of VRAM and 16GB of DDR4 memory (expandable to 32GB). It also comes with an M.2 256GB SSD and a 1TB 5400 RPM HDD.
The rest of the features include a red-backlit keyboard with 1.6mm key travel distance and anti-ghosting, HD web camera, standard connectivity options with a couple of USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C ports, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2, HDMI and mini DisplayPort outputs. It also features a 76WHr 4-cell Li-ion battery, although we doubt it can keep it alive for long, considering it packs some serious desktop-class hardware.
As noted, the new Asus ROG STRIX GL702ZC notebook is already listed on Asus' own website for US $1,499. We are quite sure that other retailers/e-tailers, as well as other regions, will get it soon enough.
