Asus is taking pre-orders for a model with a Ryzen 9 5900HX processor, GeForce RTX 3070 graphics, 32GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, and a full HD 300 MHz display for $2900. It has an Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) Plus cooling system with redesigned fans to help keep its temperature under control. The ROG Zephyrus Duo this year comes with a Special Edition update with the same raised ScreenPad+ second screen. More features supported are Adaptive-Sync and Pantone Validation.

The accompanying ScreenPad Plus secondary panel (3840x1100 pixels) is a natural choice to "browse the web, read emails, chat over instant messaging apps, or to stream or record gameplay", reckons Asus.

For a full spectrum multimedia experience Asus says that it has implemented upgraded speakers, Dolby Atmos, 3D precision audio, and two-way AI noise cancellation. Better yet it has two HDMI 2.1 ports plus one DisplayPort 1.4 port with DSC.

This is a 13-inch ultraportable 2-in-1 style gaming laptop that can be flipped into different positions tent mode, stand mode and a more traditional laptop setup.

HDMI 2.1 is becoming more and more prevalent, and now ASUS has joined the party with the ROG Swift PG32UQ.

It's created to be lightweight, compact and ultra-portable, weighing in at just 1.3kg and just 15mm thick while delivering a decent amount of gaming power with an AMD Ryzen 9 5980HS CPU, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU and as much as 32GB of LPDDR4X 4266MHz RAM. This is said to make the ROG X13 Flow eminently suitable for "content creation, AAA gaming and work on the go, as well as hardcore gaming at home". The laptop can be paired with XG Mobile, which also includes a dedicated USB 3.2 Gen 2 link.

Starting with the biggest one, the ROG Swift XG43UQ is a 43-inch 4K gaming monitor with a VA panel and a 144Hz refresh rate. The aspect ratio on both the display variants is 16:10. The announcements were made at Asus's virtual presentation at the CES 2021 and it is not known as to when these new products will be launched in India. The Asus ROG Flow X13 measures 29.9 x 22.2 x 1.58 ~ 1.58cm and weighs in at 1.30kg.

With that AMD Ryzen setup, Asus claims the Flow X13 can manage up to 11 hours of use before it needs charging, at which point the USB-C PD charger can deliver 60 per cent of its juice in just under 40 minutes.

GeForce RTX 3060 delivers 90 frames per second on the latest games with ultra settings at 1080p. The laptop houses Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3080 GPU running at 130W with dynamic boost.

The Asus ROG XG is a mobile external GPU designed around the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU. With up to 16GB of G6 memory, it powers the world's fastest laptops for gamers and creators.
