CES 2020: Asus ROG Gaming Laptops

Our first stop at CES 2020 was at the Asus booth, where we caught up with our friend Geoff to find out what one of the most well-known names in PC gaming had in store. As in years past, we found quite the impressive spread of gaming PCs and peripherals. First let’s have a look at the mobile gaming gear.

The Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 gaming laptop is the company’s first 14-inch rig, but they managed to not compromise on performance in the pursuit of portability. They’re touting the svelte machine as the “world’s most powerful 14-inch gaming laptop,” and it’s got the specs to back up that claim. Under the hood, you’ll find a variety of high-end options, up to a Ryzen 7 4800HS CPU, RTX 2060 GPU, 32 GB RAM, and a 1 TB NVMe SSD. Display options include three different IPS panels in either FHD or WQHD resolution, all with Adaptive Sync technology. And this is all in a chassis less than 20mm thin. The icing on the cake (almost literally) is the all-new AniMe Matrix display, which turns the opposite side of the monitor into a customizable lo-fi LED display, letting users personalize their laptop lid with DIY graphics or message. Competitive gamers can take taunting to a whole new level with that tech.

A premium product like the Zephyrus is going to command a premium price, which in the world of PC gaming can place it out of reach of many casual gamers. For those looking for something a little more reasonably priced, Asus has the TUF gaming laptop models, which offer 15 and 17-inch display options. Inside the TUF machines, you’ll find multiple AMD CPU and NVIDIA GPU options, NVMe SSDs, a wealth of I/O ports, and a big battery. As affordable options, don’t expect these gaming laptops to be easy to lug around—the A17 tips the scales at nearly 6 lbs. Those looking for the best of the best will want the Asus ROG.
