ASUS plans to push 300Hz with their latest gaming notebooks

Forget 240Hz, let's add another 60Hz into the mix.



Read more about ASUS' plans to release notebooks with 300Hz screens this October.

For general use I can't see it being an issue, as for gaming no one uses a gaming laptop via battery alone.

Requires more power to drive the display. Wasteful for a notebook

Outside of that, it's silly to get a gaming notebook to only ever use it in one spot. Can build a small form factor pc for less generally. Never understood even as a child when we had a "gaming" notebook.

Lighter weight for LANs though rather than carrying around a whole system.

It's for people who don't always game in the same place I guess. I have a laptop with an eGPU dock I made for it so I can still have a gaming system when I've got a contract in a further out city, or through the part of the year I'm in Malta, but with a gaming laptop you could also play it plugged in on most trains, coaches, planes or whatever nowadays if you travel a lot.

So 300fps is now a thing? Damn son, I wasn't aware humans had tapped into their super human abilities in the last couple of years

And since when could a 2080 even manage that? Once again it'll all be about the minimums.

Seriously this is getting silly now.

I know why people do it. I just don't see the point as so few people actually use gaming laptops for mobility. They keep it in one spot and hardly move it. Defeats the point
