Asus' new ROG gaming PC sports an 8th-gen Intel 6-core CPU and a neat storage trick
The ROG Strix GL12 is a gaming PC built around Intel's latest 8th-gen processors, with the rig being capable of taking a Core-i7 8700/8700K (six-core with Turbo up to 4.8GHz), or a Core i5-8400 CPU. In a twist from conventional keyboard designs, ASUS ROG has placed a set of media controls on the top left-hand side including an aluminum volume wheel. It also includes an expansion bay and an easy-swap SSD tray to make system upgrades effortless.
The G702 is equipped with an overclocked Intel Core i7-7820HK and an NVIDIAGeForce GTX 1080, so any way you slice it, this is a pretty powerful gaming laptop.
At CES 2018 today, ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) unveiled several new products in its lineup of gaming gear including a laptop, desktop, keyboard, and more. You can pick up the ROG G703 right now starting at $3499. The ROG Strix Flare features full RGB lighting and Cheryy MX switches. Pricing and availability of the ROG Spotlight are now unknown at the time of writing. A USB passthrough lets you connect your mouse to the keyboard, to clean up some cabling, and it offers a detachable wrist rest as well.
The ROG Spotlight is a unique RGB accessory which allows users to project the ROG logo onto your wall, or surface of choice and can be synced up alongside a plethora of ASUS Aura enabled devices including keyboard, graphics card, motherboard and even monitor; they have to be supported by ASUS Aura Sync, of course, to amalgamate together to create a uniformed regiment of hardware. The backlit keys are individually programmable and there is a swappable, illuminated acrylic insert emblazoned with the ROG badge.
Finally, Asus has produced a "Bezel-free Kit", a neat bit of technology which can be used to eliminate the visible bezels in multi-monitor setups.
The ASUS ROG Strix Flare, ROG Aura Terminal, ROG Spotlight and ROG Bezel-Free Kit will be available during the first half of 2018; pricing will be available closer to launch.
Two other accessories include the ROG Aura Terminal and ROG Spotlight.
Since the kit uses no power or special tools beyond the magic of light refraction, it is compatible with a wide variety of monitors of different brands and sizes. It features a magnetic base for secure attachment to any metal surfaces and provides 360 degrees of adjustment.
