ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Malaysia today unveiled its latest line-up of high end gaming solutions, several of which are already available for Bruneians to toy with via the ASUS premium partner CF King.
From desktop CPUs to laptop gaming rigs, ASUS has yet again put on a good show of power and versatility, proving itself capable of presenting multiple levels of performances which could at least quench the thirst of people’s gaming appetites.
There may be a vast array of launched at the Sunway Resort and Spa, which was also attended by the delegation from CF King led by its Assistant General Manager Jassiline yong, but we have identified several builds that may strongly appeal to the Bruneians.
Zephyrus: a family of lightweight fighters
The new Zephyrus models – S (GX502), M (GU502) and G (GA502) – are now made to be more light and portable, a feature that seems to cater to those wishing for the best from both the working world and the gaming scene.
Whenever a gaming rig shrinks in size, people would usually question capability to regulate the temperature, but this is definitely not a reason for worry.
All of the new Zephyrus line-ups are equipped with a self-cleaning thermal module that ejects dusts automatically to increase machine sustainability.
This feature, padded with an Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) ensures that each components of the machine receives the best care – that nothing will go wrong no matter how long and how tough the laptops are being used.
Additionally, ROG’s armoury crate software equipped in all of these models are also capable of switching between operating modes to optimise performance and handle tasks.
Affordable gaming rig for everyone
Strix brothers Hero III and Scar III also gets a younger sibling; the Strix G, which is an entry-level machine designed to allow greater accessibility to high-end laptops.
Different from the brothers, the Strix G appears to be more raw; it does not posses crazy response screen response like its brothers but it is definitely enough to handle tough games that require amplified graphic powers.
The difference? While the Hero III and Scar III boasts the 9th generation of Intel i7 processor through and through, the G has another model that featured only an i5; and while the brothers are packed with an RTX graphics, G is only powered with GTX.
Another key feature that is not present in the G is the Keystone; a physical NFC-enabled key that fits neatly into both Hero III and Scar III’s chassis, giving the machines different effects and profiles when docked.
Otherwise, the G is definitely the best rig for students or anyone looking to start building their own gaming profile.
Huracan the tough slasher
The ROG Huracan G21 is ASUS’ latest flagship gaming desktop which aesthetics reflect that of a lone swordsman capable of cutting through any obstacles he may face.
The exclusive build featured a detachable side cover designed to let natural airflow regulate the machine’s thermal capabilities and processes – which in turn help the necessary sensors to detect the conditions to boost CPU and GPU performances.
The Huracan is powered by the latest 9th generation of Intel Core i9 processor with up to 32GB of DDR4 2666MHz memory AND an NVIDIA Geforce RTX 2080 8GB graphics; it comes with up to 512GB SSD and a 2TB HDD.
There is also a variant that is powered with an Intel Core i5 processor along with a 256GB solid state drive (SSD).
Those who are interested to closely view these models can visit CF King’s booth at the ongoing 23rd Consumer Fair, which will run until the end of this week.
Besides the mentioned builds, CF King will also be showcasing its TUF gaming laptops as well as Zenbook and Vivobook series.
