ASUS and its gaming-centric brand, Republic of Gamers (ROG), certainly caught our eye at COMPUTEX 2018. Two mega booths stand side-by-side in the middle of Nangang Convention Centre’s 4th floor. Many of the products on showcase include things we’ve already seen or reviewed in recent months, as well as the ones that were announced in the last two days.
We’ve already covered some of those products, such as the exciting new ROG Phone and the new ZenBooks. But if you want to see how some of the other products look like, first check out our ROG booth coverage below.
ROG Strix Hero IIA new generation of ROG Strix gaming notebook for MOBA gamers, the Strix Hero II has clearly outlined QWER keys and a few other newly added features.
We posted this in our ROG Peripheral article, but we finally got a proper look at the actual product at the booth. It’s a decent size, and should be a good fit for most heads.
ROG Balteus Qi
A mousepad that lights up still sounds gimmicky to us, but we’re all for one that can also charge your wireless mouse like this one.
The Ryujin has a few cool features to it. Besides the micro fan that can cool M.2 SSD slots that are usually right under the CPU socket, the OLED display can do fun stuff like display personalised GIF images.
Then there’s the Ryuo, which is essentially the Ryujin’s smaller brother.
ROG Rapture GT-AX11000
Last year we saw this powerful router with features geared towards gaming, this time around we’re seeing an upgraded version with the Rapture GT-AX11000. Thanks to 802.11ax WiFi standard, this router can pump out bandwidth that’s rated at 10 Gigabits.
ROG Thor 1200W Platinum
Large 135mm wing-blade fan, 100% Japanese capacitors and 80 Plus Platinum rating for energy efficiency. If you plan to build a power-hungry system, you might want to take a look at this.
