ASUS has announced the launch of three all-new ZenBook notebooks: the ZenBook 13, ZenBook 14, and ZenBook 15. The machines share many of the same slick features with the most notable being a very thin profile, and screens with thin bezels. ASUS says that the machines all have a 95% screen-to-body ratio thanks to NanoEdge displays for near-borderless visuals. These machines all claim to have the world's smallest footprint in their respective classes. The 13-inch and 14-inch ZenBooks also have a cool NumberPad that crams a full-size LED-illuminated number keypad into the touchpad. The ZenBook 15... Read more...

Over the past few days, there have been numerous leaks regarding NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 2080 and the even more powerful GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards. At this point, these are the confirmed specs that we have for the PNY versions of the two high-end gaming cards: So far, two MSI GeForce RTX families have leaked along with cards from Palit and PNY.

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the latest upgrade to its Zephyrus line of gaming notebooks: the Zephyrus S (GX531). This time around, ASUS thinned out the frame of the gamming system and added some display tweaks. ASUS says that the Zephyrus S is roughly 12 percent slimmer than its predecessor, coming in at 14.95mm to 15.75mm depending on where the measurement takes place. As before, the Zephyrus S features narrow bezels, which allows ASUS to cram a 15.6-inch display into the chassis footprint of a 14-inch class notebook. Speaking of the display, it has a resolution of... Read more...
ASUS is shaking things up in the smartphone market with a budget phone that is the antithesis of a $1,000 handset like Sony's Xperia XZ2 Premium. The company's new ZenFone Live (L1) costs a fraction of that at $109.99, planting itself firmly in affordable territory, and if you want one you will have to head over to Best Buy where it is exclusively available for the moment. As you might imagine, the ZenFone Live is not rocking the latest and greatest hardware at that price point. Whereas flagship handsets typically sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip, the ZenFone Live (L1) is powered by a modest... Read more...
Top tier motherboard makers have started rolling out new products based on AMD's X399 chipset, presumably in anticipation for second-generation Ryzen Threadripper chips that are right around the corner. That includes the beastly slice of silicon with 32 cores and 64 threads that AMD has been teasing since Computex. Starting with ASUS, the company did not announce any new motherboards, but did introduce a cooling kit for its existing ROG Zenith Extreme. The cooling kit consist of a small fan, bracket, SOC heatsink, and set of screws. It is intended to keep vital parts of the motherboard from overheating... Read more...
At long last, AMD's hardware partners have formally introduced a slew of new motherboards based on the company's B450 chipset. Whereas AMD's X470 is aimed at power users and enthusiasts, B450 boards typically target buyers on a budget. Prices vary depending on features, of course, but for the most part B450 motherboards should check in at under $200. The main thing you give up with B450 versus X470 is multiple GPU support (CrossFireX and SLI). Otherwise, B450 and X470 are overall pretty similar—they have the same number of PCIe Gen3 lanes (16 with Ryzen 7 CPUs), both support overclocking,... Read more...

You never know what you will see at Computex, whether it's the demonstration of a beastly 28-core/56-thread processor by Intel, or an ASUS ROG Gaming Phone with a 90Hz display, 512GB of storage, and ultrasonic storage. ASUS has been especially active this year, not just with a new phone, but also in laptops. One of the new machines the company unveiled is Project Precog, a dual-screen laptop aimed at artificial intelligence and machine learning tasks. Project Precog is currently in concept form, meaning it's not a shipping product and might never be. ASUS is testing the waters with the concept... Read more...
ASUS' ZenBook Pro 15 UX580 laptop has debuted and it is packing what it calls the ScreenPad. This feature takes the spot that would normally be reserved for a standard touchpad and turns it into a secondary screen that can display its own data. The ScreenPad is a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display with custom controls for apps like Office and YouTube. While it can act as a secondary screen for control of some programs, it still retains full support for Microsoft Precision Touchpad and gestures supporting up to four fingers. A configurable toolbar at the top of the ScreenPad can be dragged down to... Read more...
