ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Malaysia announced a top-to-bottom update of its entire gaming family solutions for Q3 2019 onwards. Here’s a look at some of the innovative products they had to show off!
ROG Mothership GZ700GX: The Future of Desktop Replacements
Instead of lying flat on a desk, ROG Mothership stands to allow the cooling system unrestricted access to airflow at the back. The keyboard separates and folds, giving freedom to position it for what they call the ‘perfect’ stance, and connecting wired or wirelessly depending on the scenario. Detaching the keyboard reveals a row of four speakers that aimed directly at the user, creating an effective sound bar right beneath the display. It sort of reminds me of the Nintendo Switch, and looks more like a tablet than anything else. But it’s an innovative step regardless.
The improved airflow from the upright design lets ROG shave down the chassis without sacrificing speed. At 29.9mm, ROG Mothership is surprisingly slim.
Some of the credit goes to the CNC-machined body, which milled with precision for a perfect fit. It takes nearly 20 hours to carve all the pieces from solid blocks of aluminium, resulting in chiselled lines and precisely formed pieces that reflect the care and attention to detail during the manufacturing process.
ROG Mothership has an ultrafast FHD panel refreshes at 144Hz with a 3ms response time to satiate gamers who want to experience true triple-digit FPS for fast-paced play. The ROG Mothership in the Mid of July 2019, and will start off at RM 26,999.
Refreshing cool: Glacier Blue was inspired by Intelligent Cooling
The latest ROG laptops now available with a new color option named Glacier Blue, inspired by this season’s focus on Intelligent Cooling. The frosty shade looks and feels lighter, bringing new energy to gaming laptops. Glacier Blue will be available on Zephyrus S GX502 and Strix G G531 this year for Malaysia. I mean, it is a step away from the pretty normal black gaming laptops you mostly see, so this is another way ROG are making their products stand out.
To retain a sense of boldness and hint at the hardware within, sleepier shades bypassed in favour of high-energy blues inspired by science fiction.
Glacier Blue unifies these concepts with a wintery look at first glance that becomes surprisingly saturated upon closer inspection. This specific shade has a silvery sheen in the light, making it appear paler and more polished from a distance. The brighter appearance helps mask fingerprints and blemishes while also blending in with more mainstream and professional laptops. Bolder blue tones jump out when up close or in darker environments, providing a shot of colour along with more contrast for RGB lighting.
The Zephyrus GX502 will start off at RM 8,899 and the Strix G G531 at RM 3,899 and will be available at the end of August 2019.
