Asus ROG unveils latest gaming laptops, desktops, and more

The ROG Strix SKT T1 Hero Edition sounds like quite the mouthful, but it's a gaming laptop that is created to play graphics-intense multiplayer online battle arena games like League and Dota 2. The ROG Strix SKT T1 Hero Edition is designed for MOBA gaming and comes equipped with an Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, and features a 120Hz IPS-level display with a 100% sRGB color gamut. "The screen is a 15.6" number with a 1920x1080 resolution and a fast 120-Hz refresh rate. There is a 1TB 5400RPM hard drive and a 256GB Gen3X4 SSD drive. The special graphic on the laptop's lid will let the world know of your support for Team SKT T1. In the first look, the setup appears very similar to the triple screen laptop Razor released a year ago, but the job it does is very different. This powerful machine is based upon a factory-overclocked 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor (up to 4.8GHz hexa-core) and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. In addition to bright RGB switches, the Flare has made the tray bed white to increase the effectiveness of the lighting and has also included nine LEDs along the edges for extra glow, which can all be controlled independently.

ASUS Republic of Gamers already introduced a gaming tower in the Strix GL 12 today, but if your preference is for gaming laptops, it has you covered there too. The Flare has dedicated media controls, including a volume wheel. The wrist rest is also detachable if you wish to remove it.

The ASUS ROG Strix Flare, ROG Aura Terminal, ROG Spotlight and ROG Bezel-Free Kit will be available during the first half of 2018; pricing will be available closer to launch. Asus said the latest ROG lineup is aimed at offering more immersive gaming experience to users. The Aura Terminal can also be placed inside a case for use with the usual Asus Aura components.

Finally, there's the Bezel-Free Kit accessory, which attempts to "visually eliminate the gaps" in a multi-monitor setup. With no requirement for power or any software, this looks like quite an elegant solution. Interested gerbils will have to stay tuned for future coverage. It can pivot a full 360° to allow the object projected to always be upright no matter how the projector is mounted.

ROG Strix SKT T1 Hero Edition launches during the first quarter of 2018 priced at $1,699. You can pick up the ROG G703 right now starting at $3499.

The ROG Strix GL12 will be available in April, at prices to be determined.
