Items tagged with Asus

  Computer displays were a hot item this year at CES, and ASUS did its part in advancing the field with three fresh entries. The most stylish of the bunch, however, is the Designo Curve MX38VQ. The Designo Curve MX38VQ is a 37.5-inch display with a QHD resolution (3840 x 1600) IPS panel. The frameless display has a 2300R curvature which is “equidistant to the viewer’s eyes, making for an even more immersive viewing experience.” You’ll also find dual 8-watt Harman Kardon speakers, and the MX38VQ’s relatively small base/stand is home to a Qi wireless charging pad. Designo Curve MX38VQ For those... Read more...
Perhaps sometime in the future we will stop calling our mobile devices smartphones and refer to them as smartcams. Think about it for a moment—for many people, making actual phone calls is secondary to taking pictures, maybe even tertiary or further down the list of priorities depending on what else a mobile phone is being used for. Phone makers know this and they're putting an increasing amount of focus on camera performance, a fact that is underscored in the new ZenFone 3 Zoom by ASUS. Make no mistake about it, the ZenFone 3 Zoom is "built for photography," as ASUS is unashamed to point out.... Read more...
Gone are the days when you needed a massive desktop tower for high end performance, especially gaming (though we still have an affinity for large systems). For those who prefer power in a compact setup, there are lots of options out there, including the new VivoPC X from ASUS. Powered by one of Intel's just-announced desktop Kaby Lake processors and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 series GPU, the VivoPC X packs a mean punch in a small form factor (SFF) chassis. The aggressive looking 5-liter chassis measures 2.99 x 10.23 x 11.02 inches, which is plenty small enough to slide into a home theater arrangement... Read more...
If you are all business in the front and party in the back, the ASUSPRO B9440 may be more your style. According to ASUS, this is the world’s lightest 14-inch business notebook and is on par with many 13-inch notebooks. The 14-inch Full HD display has thin bezels, allowing the display to fit into a smaller frame.  ASUS argued that this notebook is “built for” business, power, and comfort. The company noted, “ASUSPRO B9440 is designed from the ground up to deliver on-the-go business productivity with superior style.”  The chassis of the 2.31-pound notebook is made of magnesium alloy,...

If you have been itching for a new gaming computer, ASUS has got your back. ASUS’ Republic of Gamers brand announced that the GT51CH gaming desktop, with 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processors and SLI’d GeForce GTX 1080’s, is now available. The GT51CH gaming desktop's Kaby Lake Core i7 processor allows users to run games on the “Ultra” graphics settings and seamlessly watch 4K UHD videos. GeForce GTX 1080 SLI enable beautiful 4K UHD gameplay, and according to ASUS, the GT51CH performed 60% better than a GeForce GTX 980 SLI-equipped system in development tests. The company also claims it was... Read more...
Qualcomm is apparently feeling giddy that ASUS is using the company's Snapdragon 821 System-on-Chip to power its not-yet-announced ZenFone AR. Well, not officially announced, anyway. An eager beaver at Qualcomm jumped the gun and posted a full press release that confirms earlier leaks of the ZenFone AR being the first handset to be support both Google Tango and Daydream. "At CES 2017, ASUS announced the ZenFone AR, the world’s first Tango-enabled smartphone to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor. It will also be the world’s first mobile device to be both Tango-enabled and Daydream-ready.... Read more...
Although it will likely be announced next week at the Consumer Electronics Show, the ASUS ROG GX501 has already leaked. However, the first thing that your eyes lock in the apparent lack of a trackpad and palm rest. Both have been tossed aside to make room for the keyboard which takes up that prime real estate on this notebook. What we’re left with is a rather awkward-looking notebook with a huge blank space above the keyboard. Given what’s lurking beneath the surface, we understand this odd design choice. The ROG GX501 packs in a full-fledged NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, and does so within a chassis... Read more...
Even with Microsoft and its hardware partners blitzing the market with increasingly affordable Windows laptops as of late, Chromebooks do not seem to be going anywhere. Just the opposite, established players are getting release new models. That includes ASUS. While nothing has been officially announced yet, what looks to be a successor to the company's Chromebook Flip made an appearance on Newegg recently.The listing is no longer online, but as we often say, there are no mulligans on the web. What appeared on Newegg's website was an ASUS Chromebook with the model number C302CA. Like the original... Read more...
The ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom is likely headed for an official reveal in the not-too-distant future. It was just recently spotted passing certification on China's certification website TENAA by its model number Z01HDA and will presumably join a growing list of ZenFone 3 models that include the ZenFone 3 Deluxe, ZenFone 3 Ultra, and ZenFone 3 Max.According to the listing, the ZenFone 3 Zoom sports a 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) display powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processors.

ASUS launched an array of products a few weeks back at its Zenvolution event in New York City. Among them was the gorgeous ZenBook 3 Ultrabook, the convertible Transformer 3, and an assortment of Android-based smartphones that carried ZenFone 3 branding. The four ZenFone 3 models that launched included the entry-level ZenFone 3 Laser, a 5.5” ZenFone 3 Deluxe, a 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe, and a flagship 5.7” ZenFone 3 Deluxe Special Edition, which packs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 SoC. The specifications, build materials, and pricing for the various ZenFone 3 phones that launched are all different. The... Read more...
ASUS’ Republic of Gamers division is back at it again with a new gaming laptop. While not as outlandish and as powerful as the ROG GX800 that we discussed earlier this month, the new ROG G701VI is still an incredible gaming beast that can also double as a potent workstation. At the heart of the G701VI is an unlocked and factory overclocked Intel Core i7 6820HK processor, which can be equipped with up to 64GB of overclocked 2400MHz DDR4 memory (32GB comes standard). ASUS is really pushing the G701VI as virtual reality powerhouse, and we can’t really blame the company given that NVIDIA’s top shelf... Read more...
OK, ASUS is just showing off now! The company’s Republic of Gamers division just announced the GX800 gaming laptop which exudes excess at every corner. Just look at this beast: it weighs in at a massive 12.6 pounds, while its liquid-cooling module adds another 10.4 pounds to the mix. Complementing its immense girth is an 18.4-inch 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) display with an anti-glare coating (NVIDIA G-SYNC technology is also baked into the display). Powering the ROG GX800 is an Intel Core i7 6820HK processor that can be overclocked from 3.2GHz to 4.2GHz. This leap in performance is made possible using... Read more...
Asus is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand this year. The manufacturer launched its ROG line in 2006 and has since developed a wide range of gaming products under the brand, including some monstrous gaming notebooks like the one we'll be showing you here. With the arrival of NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture this summer, the hulking systems are getting a shot in the arm, so we brought Asus’ flagship mobile gaming machine, the ROG G752VS XB78K, in house to see what you get when you go big. The efficiency of the Pascal architecture has made for mobile GPUs that are... Read more...
ASUS has a new gaming monitor, the VG245H, and unlike most other monitors out there, this one isn't solely aimed at PC gamers. In truth, you could say that about any monitor with an HDMI port, though in this case, ASUS is clearly marketing the VG245H as an option for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners first and PC players second. Heck, even gamers getting their kicks through a set-top box are welcome to join. Therein lies the big pitch from ASUS, The VG245H has a pair of low input lag HDMI ports, so ASUS reckons you can connect a media player to one and a game console to another, "ASUS VG245H features...
