Shortly after being released at CES 2019, ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) was introduced in Europe for the first time in Warsaw.
The new gamer portfolio includes ROG Mothership Removable Keyboard Notebook, ROG Zephyrus S GX701 and GX531 Thin Portable Notebooks, ROG G703 Desktop Replacement, and ROG Strix SCAR II and ROG Strix Hero II all equipped with state-of-the-art hardware , which improves the experience in the games of the moment.
Among the new gaming laptops, the first available on the Romanian market will be the Zephyrus S GX701, an ultra-slim profile model featuring NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q design and 8GB GDDR6 VRAM, Intel Core i7 processor from the 8th- a 17-inch PANTONE Validated screen with a refresh rate of 144Hz and a very narrow frame, which will enter partners’ offerings starting in February at prices ranging from about $ 10,000 (including taxes, the GPU version RTX 2060Ti).
The Zephyrus S GX701 is the most compact 17 “gaming notebook and is also the thinnest, measuring only 18.7 mm. The laptop can be powered from the regular AC adapter required for maximum gaming performance and through USB Type-C (USB-C) input for everyday tasks.
The model uses for cooling the innovative Active Aerodynamic System (AAS), which has a wide inlet when the cover is raised to increase airflow. It absorbs additional air through the ventilation grids above the keyboard, and the dual fans propel it through four radiators and ventilation grilles at the rear corners to ensure Zephyrus S GX701 will remain cold under all conditions.
The Republic of Gamers family of GeForce RTX gaming laptops
After they’ve raised the bar for desktop performance and visual quality in general, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 Series is ready to do the same thing on laptops.
The new Turing architecture becomes furniture, and the Republic of Gamers has a diverse line to meet the requirements of the players. Being just simple implementations for the latest graphics, the portable new NVIDIA GeForce RTX from ROG showed the company’s commitment to improving every aspect of mobile gaming. Laptops have incredibly fast screens framed by thin frames, capturing even more players in virtual action.
Advanced cooling ensures maximum performance with minimal noise and preset profiles for different usage scenarios. Multiple exclusive ROG features accompany the cutting edge components, helping the entire family of products stand out from the rest of the market.
Gaming enthusiasts have different priorities, so ASUS ROGs meet the requirements. For desktop replacement systems, performance is ahead of portability, the perfect ROG G703 example. Next to it joins the ROG Zephyrus S GX531 compact. ROG Strix SCAR II and Hero II take over their role in the eSports arena in a portable form, complete with competition hardware.
Improved performance-based design
ASUS Gamers (ROG) announced Mothership (GZ700), a new desktop replacement that redefines the form of gaming laptops. Instead of sitting on the desk, ROG Mothership stands vertically to absorb more air in the advanced cooling system.
The keypad detaches and folds to fit the different scenarios, giving users the freedom to find the perfect position, and the innovative design offers plenty of space to put all the speakers directly under the screen. The fabulous aluminum case fits a 17.3 “FHD FHD with a 144 Hz refresh rate, 3ms GTG response time and G-SYNC technology, based on the Intel Core i9-8950HK processor and features the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 video card.
The ROG G703 is the benchmark of desktop replacement laptops
ROG G703 is based on the 8th generation of Intel Core processors, including the Intel Core i9-8950HK processor, factory-shifted at speeds of up to 4.8GHz.
Choosing a traditional 17 “laptop format requires better cooling and a thicker case to get the same performance as its older brother equipped with larger ventilation holes. Larger radiators and fans are so effective that the G703 ROG G703 features a 144Hz refresh rate IPS panel, 3ms response time (GTG) and NVIDIA G-SYNC, allowing a fluid gameplay even with Ultra graphics settings.
The G703 also features HyperDrive Extreme storage that uses exclusive technology to combine three NVMe PCI Express (PCIe) SSDs in RAID 0 for read speeds of up to 8700MB / s, the fastest for a laptop.
Flying a familiar design gives another type of versatility. The ROG G703 can be placed on the knee, which for some may mean the difference between fulfilling a deadline or not, especially when home or away. Despite the fact that it is rooted in its traditional format, the G703 still incorporates the latest technology and features to keep on top of the top.
ROG Zephyrus S GX531 sets new standards
Installing high-end components in an ultra-thin gaming laptop is extremely difficult, especially when looking for a sleeker case than before, but the Zephyrus S GX531 offers a remarkably compact body, a proof of the engineering capability of ROG . The thin exterior measures nearly 15mm and integrates a 15.6 “screen with super-narrow frames to fit the smallest fingerprint, so you can carry the portable bag in a more lightweight bag.
ROG Zephyrus S GX531 reduces its profile without altering specifications. Get the latest state-of-the-art components like the latest Intel Core i7-8750H processor, a premium 144Hz refresh rate display, plus other essential ROG features.
They are crammed into a slimmer package that gives up some of the things that are available in the compact 17 “ROG Zephyrus S GX701. Zephyrus S is an alternative for people who prioritize portability over other features.
Make the difference with ROG Strix laptops for different types of games
ROG Strix occupies the middle ground between desktop replacements and ultra-thin premium gaming laptops.
The illumination system provides reflections beyond the desk, not just through the logo on the lid, but also through the diffused lines in the front of the laptop. These bright lines project a glamorous Aura Sync glamor in the gaming environment and offer a multitude of customization options.
The latest ROG Strix laptops are available with Intel Core i7-8750H processors with six cores and up to 32GB of RAM. They combine the speed of solid-state drives with HDD capacity that provides more space for as many games as possible. The auxiliary hard drive can be replaced with a faster SSHD that provides cache for frequently accessed data, speeding up load times.
ROG Strix SCAR II – configured for FPS gaming enthusiasts
Built for the FPS area of the esports arena, ROG Strix SCAR II comes in versions with 15.6 “and 17.3” screens, available with the same frequency of 144Hz and 3ms response time. Both versions are personalized with FPS inspired motifs and use camouflage themes to create an aesthetic fit with the battlefield.
The WASD keys highlighted further confirm the SCAR roots and ensure that you find your way in FPS games. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Ti Accelerator delivers 15 “SCAR II GL504GV and 17” SCAR II GL704GV models to produce a three-digit framerate in the most popular shooters.
Experienced players should upgrade to GeForce RTX 2070; the SCAR II GL504GW and GL704GW offer this more powerful graphics for both screen sizes, delivering extra performance in very competitive games, AAA titles and VR scenarios. You can choose from the larger 17 “screen, which is more addictive and the compact 15”, which is more portable.
Built for MOBA: ROG Strix Hero II
ROG Strix Hero II is optimized for MOBA games and is ideal for players who prefer a more subtle style. Its contrasting textures and cyber-text graphics are more discrete than the aggressive aesthetics on SCAR II, making the Hero II more accessible to the general public. Instead of highlighting the WASD key group, the translucent keys emit light on the QWER line.
Hero II is available exclusively with the GeForce RTX 2060 Ti accelerator, which is more than enough to raise the number of frames per second in MOBA or other popular games. As is the case for SCAR II, NVIDIA Optimus technology conserves energy by enabling dedicated graphics only when needed, so greater daytime autonomy and improved gaming performance when required.
