This Spring 2020, ASUS ROG Raises the Bar on Performance and Portability
Widely renowned as the gold standard on gaming laptops, the Republic of Gamers (ROG) by ASUS has announced a host of exciting launches for spring this year. The new laptops will employ the tenth-gen Intel Core CPUs for superior performance and NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER GPUs for multimedia excellence.
ASUS has also incorporated pioneering additions like secondary touchscreens for multitasking and liquid metal for efficient cooling. The evolved range spans popular ASUS ROG line-ups like Zephyrus, Strix Scar and Strix G.
Major wins in overall performance and display
One of the most significant victories of the spring range is the use of tenth-gen Intel processors that come with eight cores. With support for overclocking up to 5.3GHz, they are a Godsend for avid gamers and multimedia enthusiasts looking for responsive performance.
ASUS combines the processing excellence with speedier RAM—DDR4-3200—that is up to 10% faster than 2933MHz DDR4. Graphics performance gets a gigantic upswing from the use of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER cards and, in some models, the RTX 2080 SUPER.
Another innovative performance triumph comes from the use of liquid metal for heat dissipation. Along with a liquid crystal polymer and self-cleaning thermal components, the liquid metal optimizes performance by keeping the innards cooler for longer.
The evolved ROG laptops will also have improved displays with 4K panels, higher refresh rates—up to 300Hz—and more accurate color.
Zephyrus Duo 15: Secondary touchscreen for increased productivity
The ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 now includes a second display, built using an ergonomic hinge, for multitasking and portable computing.
That said, the primary screen comes with spellbinding options: an FHD monitor with a 300Hz refresh rate or a 4K UHD screen with a 100% Adobe RGB spectrum. Both come with NVIDIA G-SYNC to minimize tearing and delays during gaming.
Zephyrus S17: Immersive gaming, minus the bulk
The 17.3” laptop now comes with super-narrow bezel, Pantone Validation, and a sleek profile measuring only 18.7mm (0.73”).
It boasts of a 300Hz refresh rate and a rapid response time of 3ms—perfect for games with multiple transitions and special effects.
Zephyrus S15 and M15: Gaming on the move
The Zephyrus S15 brings to travel enthusiasts several pro-game options such as a traditional keyboard that works brilliantly in cramped spaces.
A lightweight, magnesium-alloy device, it uses upgraded audio with an ESS Sabre DAC for high-fidelity sound.
With options for 144Hz or 240Hz panels as well as a 4K UHD monitor, the Zephyrus M15 is another promising member of the ROG line-up this year.
ROG Strix SCAR 15 and 17: Online gaming maestros
Designed for esports, the ROG Strix SCAR 17 features a 300Hz IPS-level panel and an augmented heat dissipation system to make the most of the RTX SUPER GPU.
The SCAR 15 offers similar specs, with an RTX 2070 SUPER graphics card.
ROG Strix G: Dazzling the world with colors
Color aficionados can enjoy this gaming laptop in three different color schemes: glacier-blue, original-black, and a glorious electro -punk that comes with a 35” x 17” mouse pad.
With industry-leading technology to fuel intense gaming endeavors and demanding content creation, ASUS ROG’s spring range seems set to captivate audiences.
The new launches make the most of tenth-gen Intel processors and RTX graphics cards, while also adding to the mix innovations in heat management, display and sound.
