ASUS at CES 2020 was all about its new ROG products –
desktops, laptops and monitors.
The ROG announcements from ASUS at CES 2020 put it well
ahead in both the extent of the range and in new technologies like 240Hz
refresh monitors and 300Hz laptop panels.
Now GadgetGuy seldom reports on gaming gear (perhaps the sexagenarian editor has something to do with that), but we love ASUS products so here is an overview of ASUS at CES 2020.
ASUS at CES 2020
Powerful and Affordable Strix GA15 and GT15 Gaming Desktops
Coming to OZ in April these compact 10kg desktops (with a
carry handle) are perfect for taking to LAN parties and tournaments.
There is a choice of up to an AMD Ryzen 7 3800X CPU or Intel
10th generation Core processors and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GPUs,
up to 32GB of ram and PCIe NVMe 3.0 4 lane M2.2280 storage. There is HDMI 2.0b
and USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 (10Mbps) as well.
High performance always means high heat loads. The CPU, GPU
and motherboard are isolated in the main chamber, while the storage bays and
power supply sit below in a separate cooling zone. The dual-chamber features widened
exterior vents, and the GA15 has noise levels typically under 35 dB.
