ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announces the new gaming notebook lineup with the new 10th generation Intel Core processors. The revamped design and additional features increase the level of quality and productivity for gamers and content creators, while the latest Intel CPUs, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER graphics card and customized Intelligent Cooling solutions set a new standard of performance.
The ROG collection of this spring 2020 is characterized by the Zephyrus Duo 15 and its exclusive secondary touchscreen ROG ScreenPad Plus, together with the new Zephyrus S, M and G models, more portable and powerful than ever. For those looking for the top in the field of esports, the ROG Strix SCAR laptops are built for high level competition with RTX 2080 SUPER GPU and 300Hz display, while the bold colors of the ROG Strix G15 Electro Punk laptop and its package of accessories combined, they open up new possibilities for personal expression.
The latest components on the market are integrated into this line-up, from the liquid metal compound present throughout the ROG line with Intel’s 10th generation, to high-speed DDR4 RAM and high-speed displays. The gamer community now has a new reason to be enthusiastic.
ROG Zephyrus Duo 15
The new ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 integrates the innovative ROG ScreenPad Plus, a secondary touchscreen for an innovative multitasking concept that combines gaming, streaming, work and chat in a single portable device. The ROG ScreenPad Plus 14.1″ 4K (3840 x 1100) IPS is positioned above the keyboard of the notebook and below its main display, allowing easy interaction with the second monitor or a fluid extension of the primary screen.
When the notebook is opened, a hinge tilts the secondary display upwards at an angle of 13° to offer maximum comfort to the eye, while exposing a massive 28.5 mm air intake that sucks fresh air from the top of the laptop. This arrangement of the Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) allows the Zephyrus Duo 15 to host powerful components in a slim chassis, including the 10th generation Intel Core i9 CPU and NVIDIA’s revolutionary RTX 2080 SUPER GPU.
The Zephyrus Duo 15 comes with two high-end display options: an ultra-fast 300 Hz FHD display or a 4K UHD display with 100% Adobe RGB coverage for those who divide their time between triple A games and the production of content. NVIDIA G-SYNC technology keeps game graphics fluid, while ROG GPU Switch technology allows the exchange between G-SYNC and NVIDIA’s battery saving Optimus mode.
ROG Zephyrus S17
The new Zephyrus S17 offers a large 17.3-inch display with super narrow bezels in a slim 18.7mm chassis. With a 300 Hz refresh rate and a 3ms gray-to-gray response time, the screen is a true speed demon that can be paired with an RTX 2080 SUPER GPU and a 10th generation Intel Core i7 CPU. It shares the advantages of the GPU Switch with the Zephyrus Duo 15 and S15 models, as well as the certification of the PANTONE Validated brand which makes it ideal for both creative work and play.
The chassis of the Zephyrus S17 has given ROG engineers room to include some quality extras, including a full keyboard with RGB LED backlight, NumberPad – a touchpad that also includes a numeric keypad – and an integrated volume control wheel complete with backlight. The system temperature benefits from a unique AAS cooling solution, which opens a large air intake under the device when it is in use.
Zephyrus S17 proves that big doesn’t have to mean bulky: in a slim and portable frame, the notebook takes advantage of the large screen space, while offering a high-level ROG experience.
ROG Zephyrus S15
The new Zephyrus S15 has been tailored to provide expert players with the specs they need in a package that won’t weigh them down. The compact, thin 18.9mm chassis includes the high-end components of the S17 model, with configurations that reach the maximum with a RTX 2080 SUPER GPU combined with a 300 Hz / 3 ms display. The combination of G-SYNC technology, the pre-applied liquid metal for CPU cooling and an ultra-high refresh rate make the images flow smoothly even in the midst of frenetic action.
The honeycomb reinforcements under the palm rest keep the Zephyrus S15 solid and flex-resistant, with soft-touch paint that adds a smooth and fingerprint-resistant finish. Inside, the dual M.2 SSD adapter can be configured into a blazing RAID 0 array. GPU Switch technology also makes an appearance here, allowing users to switch from G-SYNC mode for smooth play to Optimus mode for longer battery life.
With its slim frame, Thunderbolt 3 connection and comfortable 15-inch dimensions, Zephyrus S15 makes the dream of an ultra-portable game a reality. It is the ultimate Zephyrus laptop for the traveling player.
ROG Strix SCAR 15/17
ROG Strix laptops are cheeky gaming machines that shine in the spotlight of arenas for esports enthusiasts.
ROG Strix SCAR 17 guarantees unbridled gaming power built around a 300 Hz IPS display. Thanks to the very high update speed, this panel shows fast action with unprecedented sharpness, allowing players to react to events on the screen faster than they think possible. With an eight-core Intel Core i9-10980-HK processor, up to 32 GB of 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM and with RTX 2080 SUPER GPU, the Strix SCAR 17 is showing unmatched performance.
ROG Strix SCAR 15 is instead the notebook suitable for those looking for a light and highly portable model. Its 15.6-inch display offers the same 300 Hz refresh rate for tournaments with the undeniable Strix SCAR look. It is powered by a 10th generation Intel Core i9-10980-HK CPU and RTX 2070 SUPER GPU.
The SCAR series also boldly accompanies its gaming features with customizable RGB LED lighting effects, including a light bar around the frame, the keyboard backlight and the illuminated RGB logo on the netbook body, as well as the exceptional ROG Keystone II, an NFC-enabled device that snaps to the side of the chassis. It can be customized to launch any game or app once inserted, provide access to a secret and encrypted Shadow Drive (exclusive for Windows 10 Pro) and activate a Stealth mode that mutes the sound and minimizes all apps once removed.
