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 to a launch event in New York in a couple of weeks. 👀 pic.twitter.com/g7ro8Q84pp — ASUS North... 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 off your balla build. It features a brushed metal design with some aggressive lines typical of an... 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, but ASUS also goes all-out with the cooler, power delivery, lighting, and some handy related... 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 ROG Maximus XI models, including the ROG Maximus XI Code, ROG Maximus XI Formula, ROG Maximus XI Hero,... 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 fan controllers support a 0dB mode that stops the fans altogether when possible. ASUS fits the Strix... 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 fresh renders, four of them will be Republic of Gamers (ROG) Maximus XI models and three will fall... Read more...
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 has a full-size standard number pad. The lack of a number pad is something that bothers folks about... Read more...
NVIDIA just dropped a massive bombshell on the gaming community with its GeForce RTX family of products, which include the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070. If you want to know more about the Turing architecture that underpins these cards and about their ray-tracing performance, we suggest you check out our two previous articles on the Quadro RTX and GeForce RTX announcements, but here's a quick refresher on what separates the three: GeForce RTX 2080 Ti: 4352 CUDA cores, 1545MHz boost clock, 11GB GDDR6 GeForce RTX 2080:     2944 CUDA cores, 1710MHz boost clock, 8GB GDDR6 GeForce RTX 2070:     2304 CUDA cores, 1620MHz boost...

ASUS is at Gamescom 2018 and is showing off a huge number of products at the show. Among the plethora of new gaming gear at the show comes details on the company's anticipated NVIDIA GeForce Strix RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 graphics cards with pre-orders already underway. The video cards include the ROG Strix, ASUS Dual, and ASUS Turbo series of cards. ASUS says that each of those series meets the needs of a different group of gamers and feature new cooling technologies. Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 keep the Turing architecture cards cool with new Axial-tech fans. Those fans have smaller hubs that allow for longer blades and a barrier ring that increases structural integrity and downward air... Read more...
There's really little left for NVIDIA (and its partners) to surprise us with at Monday's special GeForce-centric Gamescom event. 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. Not to be left out, we now can bring you images and details of cards from ASUS, EVGA and Zotac. First off, here's what ASUS has to offer: ASUS has at least three confirmed... Read more...
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 1920x1080 and a refresh rate of 144Hz compared to the previous generation panel that topped out at 120Hz.... 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 Snapdragon 425, an entry-level system-on-chip (SoC) for tablets and smartphones that was released...

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 when running a second generation Threadripper chip, and will probably help with overclocking.... Read more...
