ASUS is delivering some widescreen gaming goodness in the form of the new ROG Strix XG49VQ monitor. What makes this monitor so interesting is that it is a Double Full HD monitor that measures 49 inches diagonally with a 1800R curvature. Double Full HD means that the display has a resolution of 3840x1080 with an aspect ratio of 32:9. That's not quite as dense as Dell's impressive new U4919DW, which has a resolution of 5120x1440 while also maintaining an 1800R curve. However, the Strix XG49VQ trumps the 60Hz refresh rate on that business-oriented Dell display with a decidedly more gamer-friendly... Read more...
ASUS is cranking up the performance with its latest TUF Gaming notebooks: the FX505 and FX705. Not only are these machines backed by potent gaming hardware -- including Intel Coffee Lake processors up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU – but they are also incredibly durable thanks to MIL-STD-810G certification. The FX505 comes with a 15.6-inch NanoEdge display, while the FX705 enlarges the display to 17.3 inches. Whichever you choose, you'll be greeted with a Full HD panel with a refresh rate of 144Hz and 100 percent sRGB coverage. As previously mentioned, those display are backed by a GeForce... Read more...
Anyone who is the minimalist type wanting as little as possible on and around their workspace -- at home or in the office -- will like what ASUS has cooked up with its new all-in-one desktop PC. The machine is called the Zen AiO 27 and as the name suggests, the machine has a 27-inch screen that supports native 4K resolution with HDR. ASUS uses a NanoEdge PANTONE validated touch panel with 100% sRGB color gamut coverage with high color accuracy and a Delta-E value of less than 3.0. ASUS also wraps in some other interesting features, like a computer base that supports 7.5W Qi wireless charging; that... Read more...
AMD seems to be focusing on squeezing as much out of its Polaris architecture as possible while we wait for Navi to arrive. There have already been several generations of Polaris parts, including the Radeon RX 400 series, Radeon RX 500 series, and a refreshed release of the latter. Now there is chatter of a Radeon RX 590 model being around the bend. A Radeon RX 590 would be an interesting wrinkle to the Polaris lineup, given that it's recently been rumored AMD would launch 12nm Polaris 30 GPUs. As the rumor goes, Polaris 30 would be used in upcoming Radeon RX 680 and Radeon RX 670 models. None... Read more...
We learned late last week that ASUS has penciled in October 18th for a U.S. launch event for the ROG Phone. Today, ASUS confirmed that the ROG Phone will be available for preorder online on that date from the ASUS Store, Amazon, and the Microsoft Store. The company also revealed that the phone will not come cheap -- it will be priced from $899. So, what does $899 get you? Well, the ROG Phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that is speed binned at 2.96GHz. The processor is paired with 8GB of RAM, and customers can opt for either 128GB or 512GB of internal storage.... Read more...
When it comes to graphics cards and motherboards, ASUS is incredibly thorough with its product lines, covering a wide range of price points with features to match. That is most definitely the case with the company's approach to Intel Z390-based motherboards, which are designed for use with Intel's new 9th generation Core processors-- it is releasing a total of 20 motherboards for enthusiasts. ASUS ROG Maximus XI Extreme There are obviously too many motherboards to go over in exhaustive detail in just one article, but we'll try to hit a few of the highlights. For example, there's...

Android may have already celebrated its 10th birthday, but the idea of an Android handset built specifically for gaming has only recently started to take hold. It's a relatively new market, and ASUS is planning to jump into feet first with its upcoming ROG Phone, which appears to be headed for an October 18 release the United States. ASUS has already provided a bunch of details about its ROG Phone, a handset it's billing as a "game changer." However, it never said when the phone will come out or how much it will cost. Now it's seemingly answered one of the questions with a Twitter post pointing... Read more...
A single GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card will set you back at least $999, and more likely $1,199 or more since NVIDIA's hardware partners are initially lining their custom variants with Founders Edition pricing. For those of you with deep enough pockets to grab two of these bad boys, ASUS is releasing a custom NVLink with RGB lighting, because you're not seriously going to skip the lights, right? Forgive us for, uh, making light of the situation (see what we did there?). Joking aside, the new ROG GeForce RTX NVLink with Aura Sync RGB is not only a mouthful, it's a snazzy looking NVLink to show... Read more...
Although NVIDIA just launched the Turing-based GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti last week, its board partners were at the ready with a wide array of custom offerings right out of the gate. We were lucky enough to show you a couple of custom cards from MSI and EVGA in our initial launch coverage, and today we’ve got a brand new combatant to evaluate from ASUS, namely the GeForce RTX 2080 ROG STRIX Gaming OC Edition. As we’ve come to expect from ASUS, the GeForce RTX 2080 ROG STRIX Gaming OC Edition is about as extreme as an air-cooled GPU can get. Of course the card is factory overclocked,... Read more...
One thing that has become clear in recent weeks that anyone who is planning on building or upgrading a PC around one of Intel's upcoming 9th generation Core processors will not have a lack of new motherboard options to choose from. We have seen leak after leak of new Z390 motherboards in recent weeks, including a fleshed out lineup from ASUS. As it turns out, though, ASUS has even more Z390 motherboards on tap, than what was previously leaked. Just last week, what looked to be official press renders of nearly a dozen Z390 motherboards from ASUS found their way to the web. Among them were several... Read more...
ASUS has rolled out some new video cards that are aiming directly at the wallets of gamers everywhere. The new cards include the ROG Strix, Dual, and Turbo GeForce RTX 2070 graphics cards, all of which use GDDR6 memory and include Virtual Link tech that lets gamers using a VR headset connect with one cable. The ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2070 uses three wing-blade fans that have hubs 9% smaller than normal fans along for larger fan blades. That means the fans can move more air than similarly sized fans to keep the card cool. The fans also have an IP5X certification for dust resistance, and the... Read more...
Intel will be rolling out its 9th generation Core processor family in October, though we can't say for sure exactly when—we've heard both October 1 and October 8 thrown around. Either way, Intel's hardware partners are ready with a whole bunch of new motherboards based on the company's accompanying Z390 Express chipset. Many of the upcoming boards have already been leaked, including a wide range of Z390 motherboards from ASUS. Based on the latest leak, ASUS will have no less than 11 new Z390 motherboards on tap for Intel's 9th generation Core processors. According to fresh batch of leaked... Read more...
