ASUS Unveils ROG GR6 Console PC With Broadwell, GeForce GTX 960, Itching For Steam

ASUS took the wraps off its ROG GR6, a tiny PC with some serious hardware. The system is meant to be your LAN party go-to or a full-time resident of a desk with limited space and it’s loaded with style. It’s also loaded with Windows 8.1 and Steam Big Picture, so can bring a controller with you to the next LAN event.

The ASUS ROG GR6 is a slick-looking new LAN party beast.

The ROG GR6 feature an Intel Core i5 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics, as well as 8GB of memory and an SSD. It also has two USB ports on the front, as well as headphone and mic jacks. At the back, it has a lock port, additional USB and audio ports (including SPDIF), a Gigabit Ethernet port, an HDMI port and a DP port. It also has 802.11ac wireless connectivity.

One of the ROG GR6’s more interesting features is the Steam button at the top of the front panel. You can push the button to launch Steam Big Picture. You’ll need to buy a controller separately – and a mouse and keyboard, for that matter, but the ASUS has optional keyboard/mouse sets that match the Republic of Gamers styling on the system.

The ROG GR6 is designed to be extremely quiet (28dB at full load, according to ASUS). It’s also meant to be upgradable. ASUS designed both side panels to slide off so you can reach components for upgrades. Availability and pricing haven’t been announced just yet.
