If you are a gamer looking to maximize his or her budget, then you are probably aware that finding the "perfect" monitor is nearly impossible. There is always a caveat, and a certain feature that entices you to spend an extra $100 or more. Well, ASUS is hoping to keep those feelings to a minimum with its full-featured VG245Q, a 24-inch monitor coming in at under $250 USD. The most notable feature of the VG245Q is its inclusion of FreeSync support, allowing more people with Radeon GPUs to improve the smoothness of their gameplay (and believe us, it makes a difference). As a 24-inch monitor, it's... Read more...
  As you’ve seen by our flurry over coverage over the past few weeks, enthusiasts are rightfully excited about AMD’s Ryzen processors. Just today, we’ve seen a Ryzen 7 1800X overclocked to over 5GHz, breaking a Cinebench R15 multi-core benchmark record in the process. But those fancy new Ryzen processors can’t strut their stuff without a complementing motherboard chipset. In the case of Ryzen, AMD has five AM4 chipsets that will be available to consumers and system builders: A300, A320, B350, X300 and X370. ASUS, always a top choice among enthusiasts, has four motherboards on hand to... Read more...
  While everyone seems to be incredibly excited about AMD’s upcoming Ryzen processors, the motherboards that will pair with the monster chips are just as important. Today, we bring you some X370 chipset lovin’ courtesy of a new unboxing video that showcases the ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero. Sean from KWASTEK was sent an early board direct from ASUS and while we can’t say for sure if he’s breaking the NDA, it surely seems plausible. If you’re familiar with packaging from ASUS’s most recent ROG products (including its gaming notebooks), things are quite similar here with the ROG Crosshair VI Hero.... Read more...
If you're finding that your excitement level is Ryzen, then you've clearly been reading the many rumors swirling around the highly anticipated processor family right here at HotHardware. While it's largely expected that AMD will be releasing its first chips soon, that sure doesn't mean that the rumormill is going to be taking a break over the next few weeks. Earlier, Paul wrote in depth about Ryzen's die shot and cache structure, which came hot on the heels of a week full of other juicy information. That includes a hint of AMD undercutting Intel's just-launched Kaby Lake processors, word of a huge... Read more...
The market for ultra-wide monitors is exploding, and all of the usual players are rushing to bring great-looking products to the market for consumers. ASUS is expanding its ultra-wide portfolio with the introduction of the Designo Curve MX34VQ, which aims to stand out from the crowd with a 34-inch, 3440x1440 display. As its name implies, the MX34VQ features a gentle curve (1800R to be exact), which should give customers a more immersive experience when viewing content. It also helps that the curved design just looks so damn cool as well. The VA panel has viewing angles of 178 degrees (horizontal... Read more...
Hot on the heels of our coverage of an in-depth guide showing you how to make your own "NES Classic Edition" with a Raspberry Pi, ASUS strikes with a DIY kit that it says is about twice as fast as the RPi 3. The DIY retro gaming arena could be heating up with more powerful options!  The Tinker Board, as ASUS calls it, sports a Rockchip RK3288 SoC clocked at 1.2GHz. According to ASUS, and its GeekBench test, this chip is almost 2x faster than the RPi 3's Broadcom BCM2837, which is also clocked at 1.2GHz. Both chips are quad-core, but the Rockchip could help significantly with more processor-intensive... Read more...
  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...
