ASUS is showing off a bunch of new products at CeBIT, including motherboards, laptops, 3D displays, a routers, headsets, and more.
ROG G Series notebooks for the best mobile gaming experienceThe new Republic of Gamers (ROG) G Series notebooks lead the charge. Designed for hardcore gamers who want to be able to play anywhere, the G74Sx uses the latest Intel® ‘Huron River’ Core™ i5 and i7 processors for outstanding performance with any application, while the latest NVIDIA® enthusiast level graphics card ensure class-leading 3D performance. NVIDIA® 3D Vision is supported as standard too, as is big-screen 3D output via HDMI 1.4 to a compatible display. Cool running is ensured at all times by a unique thermal management system that uses two intelligent fans to cool the CPU and GPU, while also drawing cool air through vents at the front of the case and expels warm air through the rear to keep the system cool and comfortable. The case is designed for easy upgrades too, and offers quick access to the dual internal hard drive bays and memory slots.
Joining the G74Sx is the new ROG G53 notebook with a deadzone-free 3D display that can be viewed without the need for special 3D glasses. By combining 3D lenticular lens technology with the AUO ‘naked eye’ eye-tracking system, the G53 screen renders full 3D images that can be viewed from any angle for a more comfortable viewing experience. Both 2D and 3D modes can operate on the screen at the same time too, so on-screen text remains clear at all times.
ROG MATRIX GTX 580 graphics card makes overclocking easier than everThe new ROG MATRIX GTX 580 graphics card ships with a number of proprietary ASUS iROG technologies for superior gaming performance, including TweakIt for real-time GPU voltage adjustment, ProbeIt for instant voltage readings and a Safe Mode reboot button for a foolproof overclocking experience. The all-new ASUS GPU Tweak utility also allows enthusiasts to monitor and optimize clock speed, voltage and fan speed to achieve extreme levels of performance.
The ROG MATRIX GTX 580 also runs cool, thanks to the exclusive DirectCU II design that places copper heatpipes in direct contact with the GPU for improved thermal efficiency. Twin custom-made fans circulate up to 600% more air for a 20% cooler operation too, while the 16-phase Super Alloy Power components ensure greater operational stability and a longer product lifespan.
New VG278H 3D monitor, RT-N66U router & ROG Vulcan-ANC gaming headset
Recognizing that a successful gaming experience depends on more than just what is inside a PC, ASUS has also introduced a 3D monitor and a new range of PC peripherals. The VG278H 3D display features a 27-inch LED backlit screen and is designed for gamers who want complete immersion in the latest titles. With full support for 3D graphics cards via HDMI 1.4 and a built-in infrared emitter, users can enjoy a wire-free 3D experience.
The new RT-N66U Dual-band Wireless-N Gigabit Router is aimed at gamers looking for a lag-free experience with online gaming; and anyone who wants speedy internet and network access. Support for simultaneous 2.4GHz and 5GHz connections allows HD content to be streamed over 802.11n Wi-Fi at speeds up to 450Mbps for lag-free enjoyment. The 600MHz processor ensures both snappy response times and highly capable multi-tasking performance too, with support for up to 300,000 data sessions.
The ROG Vulcan-ANC Gaming Headset completes the new range of Republic of Gamers accessories. Perfect for gaming in noisy environments such as LAN parties or live gaming contests, the Vulcan-ANC Gaming Headset uses dual-noise-cancelling technology to filter external noise from both its high-quality speakers and boom microphone. The result is clear and directional audio for professional gamers to focus on winning the game.
