ASUS ROG at Computex 2018

Artwork, systems and pre-builds  

Not everything at ASUS' ROG Booth is an upcoming product, with some systems acting as showpieces for the brand, whether it be their 40-kilo In-Win Z-Tower Aluminium Tower chassis (below left) or ASUS' custom ITX Dream Machine custom build (Below Right).  Both of these systems are visual spectacles in their own right, showcasing the ROG hardware inside in a good light by offering a spectacular external aesthetic. 

While these cases clearly consider form over function, it is hard to argue with the visual splendour that ASUS/ROG has achieved here.

Aye, gotta see what the screen to bezel ratio and camera's are like. I would like to see a 256GB storage option though. I can't imagine what the price jump between 128GB and 512GB is going to be.

Jfc the thickness of the Ryujin block though! But I can't say I'm surprised with it housing a fan for the VRMsQuote

Interesting stuff. To answer Tom's questions:

Phone... I really like the looks. I don't care much about addons, and connectivity. It is a phone. What is the point of caring a suitcase of addons? At home you have PC. Why do you need docking station? You won't carry it around. Joypad thingy, and that dual screen is good if you are traveling.

For AiO i really like the "classical" shape. Fan to cool VRM... pointless. And the looks... You know what ASUS... too much exists. Don't overdo it.

PSU is amazing. I would really like that this type of fancy PSUs at least make PSU covers removable.

Case i don't like at all. I don't like writing all over it. And here also ASUS you are overdoing it. It is a gaming rig. It will get really hot. Don't put a slab of glass in the front. Design vents that work.

Have a nice time Tom. Quote

Gotta admit, I initially didn't like the looks of the Ryuo, but now I think it's glorious! You also have to appreciate the resolution of the mini display. I thought it'd be more of a pixel mush

Also kinda liking the phone. My contract is running out early next year, so I might consider that if the pricing is somewhere near the affordable mark. Let's just hope they get their energy management right or I can already see problems arising concerning broken batteries, that broke because the user attached and detached the gamepad/powerbank too often...

I don't really care much about the PSUs as they're a big overkill for me. Hopefully ASUS is bringin some 500W soon with all that fancy stuff.Quote
