ASUS Unveils Trio of New GTX 700/800M Gaming Machines


During Computex in Taipei this week, ASUS revealed three new gaming machines part of its Republic of Gamers (ROG) line of high-performance gaming products.

The ROG G20 is ASUS’ new desktop gaming PC, which packs an Intel Core i7 processor and a GeForce GTX 780 graphics card housed in a 12.5-liter case.

The ROG GR8 is described by ASUS as its new “console gaming PC” and comes equipped with an Intel Core i7 processor and a GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card.

The GR8 also supports 4K/UHD display output and is fully compatible with Valve’s SteamOS and the Steam Controller. A SteamOS-powered version of the ROG GR8 will launch in the future once Valve readies its Steam Machines.

The third machine ASUS announced at Computex is the ROG GX500, a lightweight gaming notebook powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and a GeForce GTX 860M graphics card that also sports 4K/UHD with a resolution of 3840 x 2160. The ultraportable notebook weighs in at only 4.85lbs and is 0.75 inches thick.

In addition to the ROG gaming machines, ASUS showed off its ROG Swift PG278Q, a 27-inch gaming monitor with a luscious resolution of 2560 x 1440 and built-in support for NVIDIA G-SYNC.

ASUS announced that both the G20 and GR8 will be available in Q3 2014, while the GX500 will launch around September/October of this year and the Swift PG278Q in July.
