If you're looking for a hulking bruiser of a gaming laptop, ASUS is looking for your attention with its Republic of Gamers G703. This is a beastly machine that looks more like a desktop replacement than a truly portable machine, nonetheless, it is loaded to the gills with high-powered hardware on both the processor and graphics front. For starters, the conductor of this orchestra of gaming goodness is a factory overclocked Intel Core i7-7820HK processor, which is clocked at up to 4.3GHz once you take it out of the box (this represents a 10 percent improvement over stock). ASUS has installed its... Read more...

In just a few more days, NVIDIA's recently announced GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will release to retail, and so will embargoes on reviews, which will finally give consumers a chance to digest the new card's performance in comparison to other GeForce 10-series cards. NVIDIA's hardware partners are also ready with benchmarks to share. ASUS, for example, put together a couple of slides that highlight its Strix GeForce GTX 1070 Ti card's performance in OC mode. There are a couple of things to digest here. We will get to the numbers in a moment, but first let's talk about overclocking. It was rumored prior... Read more...
There are plenty of mice and keyboards on the market today that aim at gamers with specific tastes when it comes to their favorite games. There are mice specifically for the fast actions that FPS gamers prefer and then there are mice for the multiplayer online battle arena or MOBA gaming. So, it makes sense that ASUS would want to offer a pair of notebook computers with each version tailored to gamers who prefer specific types of games. The first of the notebooks is the ROG Strix Hero Edition and it is aimed directly at the MOBA gamers out there with an 15.6-inch IPS display complete with sRGB... Read more...
One thing you are not likely to hear in workstation circles is, "Do you even overclock, bro?" However, should that question arise when using an ASUS WS C621E SAGE motherboard, you could answer, "You bet your backside, I do!" For users who need to squeeze every last ounce of performance from their workstation, the WS C621E SAGE is a dual-Xeon motherboard that supports overclocking on both processors. You would think that having dual Xeon sockets (LGA 3647), a dozen DIMM slots supporting up to 768GB of DDR4 memory would be enough, and 4-way SLI and CrossFireX support would be more than enough to...

ASUS has announced some new mainboards that are available for gamers out there looking to build up a compact gaming rig using an AMD Ryzen processor. Both of the new boards are mini-ITX form factor and promise to shoehorn in all the features that gamers expect of a ROG mainboard in a much smaller package. The first new board is the ROG STRIX X370-I GAMING (AMD X370 chipset), while the other is the STRIX B350-I GAMING (AMD B350 chipset), both using Socket AM4. Both boards have very similar spec sheets and are ready for liquid cooling and have addressable RGB lighting for those wanting bing to go... Read more...
ASUS has a rather expansive portfolio of mobile PCs, and the company is expanding the family today with the VivoBook Flip 14 TP401. The VivoBook Flip 14 manages to fit a generous 14-inch HD display into a 13-inch laptop frame, while delivering a 73 percent screen-to-body ratio. Given the "Flip" in its name, it's quite easy to see that this is a convertible, featuring what ASUS calls a "step-less any-position 360° metal hinge" that allows the device to operate in tablet and tablet modes (among others). The VivoBook Flip 14, which is milled from aluminum, measures 15.4mm thick and weighs in at 3.3... Read more...
Verizon has announced a new smartphone that it has as an exclusive device from ASUS called the ZenFone V. The best thing about the handset is probably going to be the price for most folks; it will retail at $384 or can be hand for $16 monthly for 24 months on a device payment plan. As you would assume from the reasonable price point, the smartphone doesn't have the flagship hardware you will find in something like the iPhone 8 or Galaxy Note 8. For the money, what you get is solid with a Snapdragon 820 SoC with 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage (microSD expansion is supported to 256GB). The... Read more...

ASUS figures that its new Z370 motherboards will be appealing to gamers, content makers and power users. Since there are all types of computer users who are going to be taking advantage of the new 8th generation Core processors, ASUS has mainboards aimed at all... Read more...
ASUS is once again expanding its mobile family, with the latest entry being the all-new ZenBook Pro UX550. According to the company, this is "the thinnest, lightest, fastest and most elegant ZenBook Pro yet", and we have no reason to doubt those claims. The first thing that you will notice on the ZenBook Pro UX550, other than its svelte chassis, is its 15.6-inch NanoEdge touch display, which has a Full HD (1920x1080) resolution and wide 178-degree viewing angles. At the heart of the machine is a seventh generation Kaby Lake processor; in this case, a Core i7-7700HQ that teams up with 16GB of DDR4-2400... Read more...
Today we are going to take a look at three popular Intel Z270-based motherboards targeted at power users and gamers, produced by enthusiast favorites Gigabyte, ASUS and MSI. The three boards we've rounded-up here cover a wide range of price points. The Gigabyte Aorus Z270X-Gaming K5 and ASUS ROG STRIX Z270F Gaming boards represent more mainstream segments, while the MSI Z270 XPOWER Gaming Titanium targets the ultra high-end. Although AMD's powerful Threadripper processors and Intel's upcoming 18-Core Skylake-X behemoth have gotten the lion's share of attention lately, more mainstream processors... Read more...
Well, this is an interesting rumor that is making the rounds today. Someone in Asia has snapped a picture of what appears to be a new gaming system that includes an unannounced NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card. The timing of this release is a bit curious, considering that the Pascal [consumer] line of graphics cards has been on the market for over a year now, and most are looking ahead to what NVIDIA has in store with Volta. However, it's quite possible that this GeForce GTX 1070 Ti -- if the leak is real -- is a direct response to AMD's Radeon RX Vega 56. As our review showed, the Radeon... Read more...
Owners of the ASUS ZenFone AR may be tempted to ask their friends and co-workers, "Do you even AR, bro?". Asking that question is a surefire way to solicit puzzled (and perhaps annoyed) looks, but once they see what the ZenFone AR is capable of, those dirty glances and quizzical faces will quickly morph into ones of excited curiosity, and maybe even jealously. That's because this whole augmented reality business is rather new, and the ZenFone AR is one of only two smartphones to support Google's Tango (formerly Project Tango) AR platform (Lenovo's Phab 2 Pro being the other). The ZenFone AR also... Read more...
School is back in session in many parts of the country and if you are in need of a relatively affordable and stylish laptop, ASUS may have what you are looking for in the VivoBook E403NA, essentially a tone down version of its higher-end VivaBook models. Starting at $399, the VivoBook E403NA will not break the bank. At the same time, it offers a decent collection of hardware and features, some of which are not normally found in laptops in this price price range. Starting with the outside, the VivoBook E403NA sports a premium feel thanks to its brushed aluminum lid. It also has a thin and light... Read more...
