ASUS Republic of Gamers Domin8th with GTX

Today we were able to get a hands-on look at some of ASUS Republic of Gamer’s new products at SM Mall of Asia Cyberzone during their Domin8th with GTX event!

Here is a sneak peek to some of the products that they have brought and will be bringing to the Philippines.

TUF GAMING SERIES

 

Starting with the FX504 TUF Gaming Series the Country Product Manager, Joey, has said that this will not replace the current line up but rather compliment the FX503. Initially, the TUF Motherboard way back in 2010 has incorporated the same branding for the new gaming laptops this 2018. Of course, this represents durability and “toughness”.

Moreover, they have taken the opportunity to bring in the Premium Steel to the Philippines as opposed to the other countries that will have the plastic back with a metallic red accent.

ROG HURACAN

Right after the TUF Gaming Series, they went straight to the gaming desktop series which contained a new compact system desktop with the well-known RGB Aura Sync to give you the all-around RGB from your desktop to keyboards to mice.

In addition, they have added removable side vents to improve airflow by at least 16% and lowering temperatures by 15%.

Coupled with all that power, it even supports Intel Optane MemoryTM
