ANTI-DUST COOLING SYSTEM
The patented Anti-Dust Cooling (ADC) system enables G703 to clean itself of harmful dust and particles. Acting like an immune system, dust, dirt and other particles are ejected from the chassis through two dedicated tunnels via centrifugal force, preventing build-up in the thermal fins to increase system stability and lifespan. Two high-performance, dual-outlet fans blow air through ultrathin fins, while the unique heat-pipe architecture cools the CPU, GPU and chipset power components independently.
ANTI-DUST COOLING SYSTEM
The ADC system is a patented centrifugal fan module with two anti-dust tunnels. It works on the principle of centrifugal force, which acts on any object moving in a circular path, pushing it away from the center from which it is moving. Dust and other particles in the fan module are blown along the fan walls, and eventually out of the chassis through the anti-dust tunnels. This prolongs the lifespan and increases the stability of the system. Fan noise also decreases since the fans aren’t overworked.
UPGRADED 12V FANS
Compared to regular 5V fans, the two powerful 12V fans found in G703 spin 20% faster, improve airflow by up to 41%, and increase air pressure by up to 92%. In order for regular 5V fans to achieve the same performance, it requires more power, thus making the system unstable — a major disadvantage when in the midst of a fierce firefight.
ULTRATHIN FIN DESIGN
The special copper alloy cooling fins used in G703 are just 0.1mm thin — half the thickness of regular fins. Narrower fins allow for more fins to be used in the cooling module, this increases the surface area for heat dissipation by up to 16%, while at the same time reducing air resistance by 7%.
While the dynamic fans automatically adjust their speed according to CPU and GPU temperatures, you also have the option to select the Overboost, default Auto, or Silent modes to suit the situation at hand. A single press of the function key allows you to quickly and easily regulate fan performance to control noise levels and power consumption. Fan Overboost is the most aggressive setting, providing the fastest fan speed for the cooling required to fully exploit the power of G703. Silent mode lowers the fan speed, ideal when you’re after some peace and quiet.
MULTIPLE COMPONENT COOLING
The unique heat-pipe design cools not only the CPU and GPU independently to avoid thermal throttling, but also keeps chipset power components below 80°C — increasing system reliability and lifespan.
It’s time to break boundaries between gaming platforms. G703 has exclusive Xbox features to offer a combination of unparalleled computing power and gaming console-like convenience. The integrated Xbox Wireless module lets you connect up to eight Xbox One controllers without the need for an external USB dongle, while the Xbox hotkey fires up the Xbox Game bar, so you’re ready to record and broadcast gameplay, or hook up with friends on Xbox Live across Xbox One, Windows 10, tablet and smartphone. You can even play Xbox Play Anywhere digital titles on either Xbox One or Windows 10, at no additional cost. Your progress, including all save points, add-ons and achievements, goes with you.
AMP UP YOUR AUDIO
With an incredible 32-bit/384kHz sound output, ESS® Sabre delivers a sample rate that’s 8x greater than CD quality, for richer and more detailed audio experiences.
G703 delivers an unmatched sound experience. Two 2W tweeters located at the base of the display channel high-frequency audio waves directly towards you while two large, 3W woofers in the chassis reflect sound off of the table to deliver a perfectly balanced sound spectrum ranging from low to high frequencies. Further, smart amplifier technology protects the speakers while boosting in-game volume up to 200% with increased dynamic range and bass. The Sonic Studio III audio suite simulates a 7.1-channel surround-sound signal for an immersive and accurate 3D audio experience, even on standard stereo headphones. In addition, Sonic Radar III uses audio cues to provide you with an onscreen overlay to pinpoint the enemy’s exact location even before you make contact.
Sonic Studio III
Sonic Studio III is a useful suite of tools to support all of your in-game audio needs. A control panel gives you access to five different audio modes, and even lets you manually adjust settings. This software suite includes noise cancelation, voice-volume stabilization, and echo cancelation during recording. Even when you’re using earphones, it’s able to simulate a 7.1-channel surround sound signal to create an immersive gaming experience.
Sonic Radar III
