ASUS Republic of Gamers unveils latest gaming lineup at CES 2018

Asus' new ROG gaming PC sports an 8th-gen Intel 6-core CPU and a neat storage trick

At CES 2018, the Taiwanese computer manufacturer Asus has tried to address the issue with a new accessory which they like to call Bezel-free Kit. The cover of this limited edition laptop also features the SK Telecom T1 team and ROG logos, with sharp, straight creases and unique markings. In terms of hardware it is based upon an Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, and features a 120Hz IPS-level display with a 100 per cent sRGB colour gamut. A more practical element of the design is the expansion bay and eSports-ready easy-swap SSD tray.

The G702 is equipped with an overclocked Intel Core i7-7820HK and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, so any way you slice it, this is a pretty powerful gaming laptop.

ROG Strix SKT T1 Hero Edition launches during the first quarter of 2018 priced at $1,699.

The case design features a transparent side panel, and customizable lighting.

Asus is also adding the ROG Strix GL12 to its gaming desktop line. The top-shelf ROG 703 laptop with the high-end 144-Hz G-Sync display is available now for a princely $3499. Check out the ROF Strix Flare, which is an RGB mechanical gaming keyboard outfitted with Cherry MX RGB switches. The wrist rest is also detachable if you wish to remove it.

The lighting can be controlled with ASUS Aura Sync, which allows synchronized lighting on compatible devices such as keyboards, mice, and headphones. The backlit keys are individually programmable and there is a swappable, illuminated acrylic insert emblazoned with the ROG badge.

Asus also has further lighting innovations with a couple more ROG accessories. The ROG Aura Terminal is a quad-channel addressable RGB controller that can enable synchronised lighting throughout your system.

Next up is the Asus Bezel-free Kit, which is made of vertical refractive lenses meant to hide the bezels in multi-monitor setups. The ROG Strix Flare keyboard, ROG Aura Terminal, Bezel-free kit, and ROG Spotlight are all scheduled for release in the next six months.

Since the kit uses no power or special tools beyond the magic of light refraction, it is compatible with a wide variety of monitors of different brands and sizes. This piece will be available Q2 2018 with pricing announced at launch.

Another accessory announced today, the ROG Spotlight projects the ROG logo on a wall or surface to create an "enhanced gaming atmosphere". The ROG Spotlight is matte-black finished and can be magnetically attached to surfaces.
