CES 2019: ASUS ROG Announces New Range of NVIDIA GeForce RTX Powered Laptops
POSTED BY Martin Patino ON January 8, 2019
ASUS ROG (Republic of Gamers) is going all out at CES 2019 this year with the announcement of six new gaming laptops, all powered by NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics.
The most exciting of ASUS ROG’s new laptops is the ROG Mothership GZ700, a new and innovative desktop replacement that looks like a giant Surface Pro. Instead of the typical clamshell design, the Mothership places all the components behind the display and features a kickstand to keep it standing. The keyboard can then either be docked or folded then separated to become a detached Bluetooth keyboard.
ASUS has also expanded its ultra-slim and portable line-up with the new 17-inch Zephyrus S (GX701) which is accompanied with a refreshed version of the 15-inch Zephyrus S (GX531). Both feature 144Hz refresh rate displays and eighth generation Intel Coffee Lake processors.
The ROG Strix series of gaming laptops have also received updates with a new 15-inch Strix Hero (GL504) as well as new 15-inch and 17-inch versions of the Strix Scar II (GL504 and GL704, respectively).
As previously mentioned, all of ASUS ROG’s new laptops feature NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics, eighth generation Intel Coffee Lake processors, DDR4 memory, Intel Gigabit Wi-Fi, and more.
The new lineup of ASUS ROG gaming laptops should be available sometime in Q1 2019 while specific configurations, pricing, and availability should be announced soon.
