ASUS ROG announces new gaming laptops at CES 2021


The ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has announced its first interactive experience and exciting range of gaming weapons and technology at the CES 2021 ROG virtual event entitled For Those Who Dare.

The event saw the emergence of rog flow X13 gaming laptop with XG Mobile, ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE dual-screen laptop, and Strix SCAR 17. The latest products and more are available for exploration at ROG Citadel XV, an interactive, cross-border experience, presented during the live stream of the ROG For Those Who Dare virtual event and available for free download on Steam.

ROG Flow X13

 A 13-inch gaming laptop that is seamlessly mobile and powered by a processor up to AMD Ryzen 9 5980HS and a Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650. The energy-saving CPU helps extend battery life, giving Flow X13 up to 10 hours of full-charge gameplay. It also comes with a 100-watt lightweight USB-C PD charger that can charge an empty battery 60% in just 39 minutes.

Flow X13 features a 360-degree screen-turning design for use in different scenarios. The laptop features a high-resolution 4K panel protected by strong Corning Gorilla glass and a narrow-frame design, touch support, and pen. The screen comes with a 16:10 high, Adaptive-Sync supports and Pantone is validated for great color accuracy.

Dolby Atmos technology speaker delivers pure, fine sound. In addition, Two-Way AI Noise-Cancelation ensures a clear in-game connection supported by the CPU to have little impact on gaming performance.

Flow X13 can be paired with XG Mobile, an external graphics processing unit with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics. When connected, XG Mobile Flow X13 gives graphical accuracy equal to game consoles. The eGPU connector allocates a speed of 63 Gbps of bandwidth exclusively to graphics, resulting in much higher performance than thunderbolt eGPUs. XG Mobile Flow X13 graphic performance enhancement gives versatility to handle content creation, AAA games, and on-the-go work, as well as powerful games at home

XG Mobile also includes a dedicated USB 3.2 Gen 2 output, which feeds the I/O axis with an additional connection, and a 280-watt integrated AC adapter, which supports both XG Mobile and Flow X13 so users don't need to carry an additional power source.

Flow X13's cooling system is finely adjusted for high performance in a small chassis. ROG is the first to use AMD processors with liquid metal in high-performance laptops. Flow X13 has three heat switches and fan outlets, and new Arc Flow fans improve airflow by up to 15% without increasing noise. The self-cleaning thermal unit also ensures reliable performance over time. ROG offers multiple playback modes so that users can adjust the cooling system to different requirements.

ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE


Zephyrus Duo 15 SE features the innovative ROG ScreenPad Plus to give players a screen feature for more usable on-screen space for games and productive tasks. ScreenPad Plus lifts a few degrees when you open your laptop screen to give the user a comfortable viewing angle.

Zephyrus Duo 15 SE is ultra-thin with up to AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics. It comes with a 4K 120Hz display with 100% Adobe RGB color space or a 300Hz FHD display with 3ms response time and coverage 100% sRGB color area. Both panels have been verified by Pantone and feature high quality designs and adaptive sync technology.

Players can use the ScreenPad Plus secondary panel to browse the web, read emails, chat via instant messaging apps, or stream or record play. ROG worked with developers to get additional interactive content on the secondary screen, in addition to partnering with XSplit Gamecaster to allow players to monitor the broadcast while playing on the home screen. In addition, ROG has worked with Adobe to get additional content creation tools for some of its creative programs.

Dual-directional AI built-in noise cancellation provides clear connectivity, while upgraded speakers provide pure and rich sound. Dolby Atmos brings entertainment to life, giving users exceptional sound quality when listening to music, as well as providing accurate 3D sound to allow users to identify the source of in-game sounds.

The upgraded Active Aerodynamic System Plus (AAS+) cooling system allows more power to the CPU and GPU without increasing noise levels. The design provides an air entrance under the secondary screen to help cool. Featuring new Arc Flow fans that increase airflow by 13% compared to the previous generation, transmit heat from the AMD with a liquid thermal compound, and use five thermal tubes and four heat exchangers with more surface area.

ROG Strix SCAR 17

ROG Strix SCAR 17 is a powerful gaming laptop that can be customized with the GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card and even the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU. Contains up to 32GB of DDR-3200 MHz dual-channel memory and features new fans and liquid metal cooling.

Designed to be the best portable e-sports device, SCAR 17 offers high-speed images on the world's fastest laptop screen and a 300 Hz FHD screen with a 3 millisecond response time. The optional 165 Hz WQHD panel combines aerodynamics with higher detail and DCI-P3 color range. Both options have Adaptive-Sync technology, and ROG engineers have reduced the frame size to deliver a larger screen-to-body ratio for more immersive games.

The SCAR 17 features a quad-speaker design and improved Dolby Atmos sound to give players a competitive edge, allowing them to accurately identify the source of in-game noise such as footsteps or shooting. AI's two-way noise cancellation feature filters out ambient noise for high-definition in-game connectivity, even when playing in noisy environments.

The larger 90W battery now provides up to 12 hours of single-charge video playback, with fast charging support and compatibility with 100W USB Type-C power adapters.

The SCAR 17 optical-mechanical keyboard features RGB lighting per key, a 1.9 mm transmission distance for the keys. The trackpad is also 85% larger than that of the previous model, making it easier to use on the go.

The SCAR 17 is more compact than its predecessor, and this new design also includes a high-density RGB lighting bar around the front edge of the chassis, an additional light bar at the bottom of the screen, and a set of three user-interchangeable hinges, and a wide line. A new aesthetic inspired by sports equipment.

The refined cooling system extracts peak performance from SCAR 17 with noise levels reduced by 3 dB compared to the last generation. Improvements include the use of a metal liquid thermal compound on the AMD, new Arc Flow fans with special blade heads that reduce aerodynamic wave pattern turbulence, and a more efficient self-cleaning cooling system.
