Based on the ASUS Malaysia’s response to our queries, the ROG Strix GL720ZC variant for our market will carry the AMD Ryzen 7 1700 CPU together with AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB as its GPU. To independently cool down these components, ASUS has implemented Hyper Cool Duo-Copper cooling system into the laptop which utilizes a set of heat pipes and two thermal fan.
