ASUS is on hand at CES 2019, and it has unveiled a slew of new gaming gear that runs the gamut from keyboards to all-in-one CPU coolers, GeForce RTX 2060 graphics cards, and routers. ASUS has three new GeForce RTX 2060 graphics cards including the ROG Strix RTX 2060, ASUS Dual RTX 2060, and Turbo RTX 2060. The Strix RTX 2060 has Aura Sync RGB lighting with "almost limitless color customization" and is aimed "showpiece builds" according to ASUS. It has three patented Wing-blade fans for increased cooling efficiency and better overclocking. The card also features a unique metal brace to reduce tension on the PCB and FanConenct II headers to allow hybrid fan control. ASUS' Dual RTX 2060 is... Read more...
Well, this is definitely a break from the norm. ASUS has just announced its new Republic of Gamers (ROG) Mothership, which is a desktop-replacement gaming notebook that manages to pack quite a bit of hardware into a truly unique form-factor. At first glance, the ROG Mothership looks somewhat like an all-in-one desktop, as the display sits upright and is propped up by a rear-mounted step-less kickstand. However, you'll then see that it also includes a keyboard that can be attached or used wirelessly. When attached to the ROG Mothership, the keyboard is fully extended and sits at an incline. However, once detached, the keyboard can be folded (basically doubling its height) allowing you to position... Read more...
ASUS is adding a pair of new TUF Gaming models to its extensive laptop line. The new models include the 15.6-inch FX505DY and 17.3-inch FX705DY, both powered by AMD's Ryzen 5 3550H processor with Vega graphics, and up to 32GB of RAM. Never heard of the Ryzen 5 3550H? That's because until now, it did not exist. The Ryzen 5 3550H is one of several new Ryzen 3000 H-series mobile APUs from AMD. This particular model is a 4-core/8-thread chip with a 2.1GHz base clock and 3.7GHz boost clock, with 6MB of combined L2 and L3 cache. On the graphics side, it is powered by eight Vega GPU cores clocked at 1,200MHz. These new TUF Gaming laptops are the ones to feature the chip. Both laptops sport Full HD 1080p... Read more...
ASUS is introducing a handful of Chrome OS devices at the Consumer Electronics Show, including its first Chrome OS tablet. The Chromebook Tablet CT100, as it's called, runs the same version of Google's Chrome operating system that is available on Chrome OS laptops and Chromebox desktops, but "fitted into a recognizable form factor" for younger kids. In other words, ASUS is under the impression that kids are more interested in tablets (and smartphones) than laptops and desktops. ASUS also acknowledges that tots and pre-teens can be clumsy with electronics, and so the CT100 sports a rubberized chassis to "withstand life in the hands of children." To account for smaller paws, ASUS kept the thickness... Read more...
ASUS's new RT-AX88U WFi router is now available from purchase from major retailers in the United States. This router supports the new 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard, which enables ultra fast data transfer speeds and is set to become the new standard for high-end networking devices. The new RT-AX88U is the latest addition to ASUS's wireless router product line, and its design closely follows that of its predecessors such as the RT-AC86U and RT-AC88U. It has four large external antennas that support AIRadar beamforming technology that helps to strengthen the connection to devices at longer distances. Built with a new Broadcom chipset to support the new RT-AX88U network protocols, this router is able to... Read more...
It looks as though ASUS is trying to beat the CES 2019 rush by announcing some of its upcoming products a little bit early. Such is the case with the new Mini PC ProArt PA90, which is a compact, cylindrical tower that houses a host of high-end hardware. The ProArt PA90 is a workstation-class PC, and as such includes the option for an Intel Core i7-9700K or Core i9-9900K processor to handle extreme workloads that you may throw its way. Keeping the processor cool is an all-in-one liquid cooler which operates at incredibly low noise levels (36 percent quieter than comparable systems according to ASUS). And then, there’s this rather innovative trick: An innovative ventilation system also helps... Read more...

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 144Hz refresh rate. In addition, the Strix XG49VQ supports AMD FreeSync 2 adaptive refresh rate... 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 GTX 1060, but the GeForce GTX 1050 is available on entry-level systems. Customers will have a choice... 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 means users can toss a device supporting Qi onto the base and charge it up with no extra wires or...

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 of this has been announced, of course, but we can certainly envision AMD stretching out its Polaris... 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. If that isn't enough storage for you, ASUS has also partnered with Google to provide customers... 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 the ROG Maximus XI Extreme which supports up to 64GB DDR4 memory (4400MHz OC), and up to four M.2... Read more...
We are getting oh-so-close to the launch of Intel's 9th generation Core processors, and as that date approaches, motherboard makers appear to be bursting at the seams with excitement. ASRock has come out and formally introduced its Z390 lineup, while ASUS, EVGA, and MSI have all taken to social media to tease their upcoming motherboards.
