GAMING LAPTOPS

ROG Zephyrus G14

The ROG Zephyrus G14 gaming laptop brings unprecedented power to an ultraslim 14-inch form factor, wrapping powerful processors in a compact chassis portable enough to go anywhere. Despite a chassis that’s only 17.9 mm thin, Zephyrus G14 features carefully customized cooling that brings out the best of its AMD Ryzen™ 4000 Series Mobile Processor made with 7nm fabrication technology and NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 GPU. Users can optimize for gaming or creative pursuits with a choice between 120 Hz high-refresh and high-resolution displays, both with PANTONE® Validated colors and adaptive sync technology. Over 10 hours of battery life and the ability to charge from compatible Type-C power packs makes the Zephyrus G14 highly portable.

Subtle styling in Moonlight White or Eclipse Gray gives ROG Zephyrus G14 a clean and professional look, and the optional AniMe Matrix™ display deepens personalization, enabling users to show custom graphics, animations, and other effects across more than a thousand mini LEDs embedded in the lid.

DISPLAYS

ROG Swift 360Hz

ROG Swift 360Hz is the world’s fastest gaming monitor. Compared to widely available 240Hz gaming monitors, the ROG Swift 360Hz can put out a whopping 50% more frames every second — supplying esports and competitive gamers with the edge they need to win. With a comfortable 24.5-inch display size and its Full HD resolution, the ROG Swift 360Hz features the same unmistakable design that graces the ASUS lineup of its highest-end ROG gaming monitors.

ROG Swift PG32UQX

ROG Swift PG32UQX is the ultimate 4K high-dynamic-range (HDR) gaming monitor. Featuring an advanced G-SYNC ULTIMATE processor with the latest HDR features, the 32-inch 16:9 display is illuminated by full-array local dimming backlight with 1152 Mini LED zones that let the PG32UQX display the brightest highlights and darkest blacks of a scene with incredible contrast and minimal haloing. Small highlights in games, like light bulbs or the disc of the sun, can reach peak brightness of up to 1400 nits, offering a more lifelike HDR experience than ever before. The Mini-LED backlight can also turn off as needed when it comes to darker scenes.

The G-SYNC processor drives variable refresh rates up to 144Hz and support for 10-bit color throughout the refresh rate range ensures that the PG32UQX always shows off games, movies and desktop applications at their best. With NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, users will enjoy smooth, tear-free gameplay even when frame rates fall below the monitor’s peak 144Hz refresh rate, and with the incredibly capable panel and backlight inside, ROG Swift PG32UQX is certified as NVIDIA G-SYNC ULTIMATE. All G-SYNC Ultimate-certified displays undergo a rigorous validation process and are subjected to 300 image quality tests to ensure they deliver consistent quality and maximum performance.

PERIPHERALS

This means users can move the mouse much faster than before while maintaining pinpoint precision. ROG Strix Impact II Wireless is also capable of keeping its focus at up to 40g of acceleration. The combination of high performance, optimized comfort and attractive aesthetics make the Impact II Wireless a significant step up for users seeking competitiveness in their gaming endeavors while freeing themselves from the constraints of a cord. The Impact II Wireless can add a bit of extra RGB flair to an Aura Sync-capable PC as well.

ROG ITX Z11

The ROG ITX Z11 case features an innovative interior layout with a patent-pending 11° tilt design, which enables better heat dissipation and component showcasing as well as support for up to an ATX power supply unit and 2080 Ti graphics card mounted vertically without a riser. The case also provides excellent thermal performance via a chimney effect conducive to vertical ventilation, ample space behind the motherboard and additional cable management space. ROG ITX Z11 offers a premium design with a 1.2 mm aluminum frame to ensure chassis construction strength, two tempered-glass panels and an internal extension hub for adding addressable RGB fans and LED strips, USB headers and PWM fan connectors. Furthermore, this chassis features a standing design that allows users to display it vertically or horizontally. An additional version of ROG ITX Z11 is also available featuring an embedded 1.77-inch LiveDash color OLED on the front panel displays useful system information, such as temperatures, voltages, fan speeds, or frequencies.
