ASUS and Republic of Gamers feature experiential booths at Computex 2019

VivoBook S14 and S15 are a pair of ultraportable laptops featuring five unconventional color blocking finishes that add a dash of personality to mobile computing to appeal to a younger audience. The sleek metal chassis features unique design touches and includes the ErgoLift hinge design for comfortable typing. These laptops incorporate the new frameless four-sided NanoEdge display design for more compact dimensions and an immersive viewing with an up to 88% screen to body ratio.

The display area also showcases ZenBook Flip 15 (UX562), a high-performance 2-in-1 convertible 15.6-inch laptop and the most powerful ZenBook Flip model ever. Featuring an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and gaming-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 graphics, ZenBook Flip 15 delivers unprecedented desktop-level processing and graphics performance.

ZenScreen Touch

Visitors in the vicinity of the ZenBook and VivoBook display will also be able to see the new ZenScreen Touch MB16AMT, a 15.6-inch Full HD portable monitor that weighs just 900 grams, is 9mm thin and features a large 7800 mAh battery that lasts up to four hours, taking mobile productivity to new heights. Its responsive 10-point touch screen supports swipe, scroll, drag and pinch gestures for effortless and intuitive interactivity to help users get tasks done more efficiently. The IPS display also supports the innovative ZenScreen Touch app, which enables the display and control of apps from Android phones for a large-screen productivity boost.

Content creation devices

The content creation area of the ASUS Booth features the latest ASUS devices perfect for the creative spark in everyone, including the new ProArt™ PA32UCX and PA27UCX displays, ASUS StudioBook W700G3T and StudioBook W500, and the Pro E800 G4 workstation.

ASUS ProArt PA32UCX and PA27UCX are the world’s first 4K HDR monitors with mini-LED backlighting. Mini LED and local-dimming control with increased brightness granularity enable reproduction of the brightest whites and the deepest blacks with sharper and more detailed visuals. ProArt PA32UCX also supports Dolby Vision which allows content creators to bring new depth to their content. It delivers more accurate, lifelike color than standard dynamic range. With Dolby Vision, the colorist is further empowered to create trims for each shot to control how the content maps to the consumer devices. This provides confidence to content creators that their images are represented on all devices with ultimate consistency.

The latest NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ GPUs and GeForce RTX utilize NVIDIA Turing™ architecture and are the first to support real time ray tracing, capable of rendering beautiful scenes with more accurate light effects, shadows and reflections. The latest ASUS laptops, including ZenBook Pro Duo, StudioBook W700G3T and StudioBook W500, take advantage of this, catering to the needs of content creators and meeting the stringent requirements of the NVIDIA RTX Studio program. RTX Studio laptops are precision crafted to deliver dramatic improvements in productivity and performance across everyday creative apps. StudioBook W700G3T is powered by up to a 9th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 or Xeon® processor with NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 graphics, while StudioBook W500 is powered by an Intel Core i7 9750H CPU and NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 GPU.

Pro E800 G4 is a high-performance workstation powered by the upcoming Intel® Xeon® W-3200 processor, up to four NVIDIA® or AMD® GPUs, up to 1536GB of ECC memory and dual 10G LAN ports for higher speed networking, better productivity and faster file-transfer efficiency. Pro E800 G4 is engineered for the most intensive applications, such as real-time rendering, simulation and visualization scenarios. ASUS works in close partnership with numerous independent software vendors (ISVs), including industry leaders like Adobe, Autodesk and VRAY, to test and verify compatibility with Pro E800 G4.


A dedicated networking area showcases ultrafast Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) home networking with the AiMesh AX6600 Mesh Wi-Fi system (RT-AX95Q) and a complete home solution featuring the RT-AX58U router, StudioBook W700G3T laptop and Mini PC PN61.

The AiMesh AX6600 Mesh Wi-Fi system and RT-AX58U router support 160MHz bandwidth and 1024-QAM to provide ultrafast Wi-Fi speeds that are up to 2.5x faster than those supported by the previous Wi-Fi standard.

A combination of OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology provides up to 4X better network efficiency and capacity. With OFDMA, the data channel is separated into smaller sub channels, so data from different devices can be bundled together to ensure no bandwidth is wasted. This means that one channel can transmit data to several devices at the same time, improving efficiency and reducing latency. These smaller sub channels also enable the routers to provide up to 80% greater coverage than those of the previous generation.

The Wi-Fi 6 standard also helps to improve battery life of connected devices. A new technology called Target Wake Time (TWT) allows transmissions to be scheduled, so connected devices can sleep for longer periods, delivering up to 7X better battery life.
