Feature: A decent 1080p gaming laptop with one big flaw

Asus ROG Zephyrus M15 review

When I first saw Asus' ROG Zephyrus G14 laptop back in January this year, I was struck by just how 'normal' it looked. Sure, it had a mad LED matrix display on the back of its lid, but at a glance, I'd have pegged it as a regular everyday laptop that was only fit to play the smallest of 2D indie games. Instead, it had…

Feature: We test the Asus TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 OC

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 review

On paper, Nvidia's new GeForce RTX 3080 lays claim to a lot of sexy headlines. Its 4K gaming performance is significantly faster than its immediate and identically priced predecessor, the RTX 2080, and it even beats Nvidia's previous flagship, the RTX 2080 Ti, offering 4K 60fps speeds on max settings in almost all of today's top games for almost half the money - at least…

Save $1300 on this RTX 2080-powered Asus gaming laptop

There have been a spate of pretty good deals on Asus gaming laptops over the past few months, and this latest one from Newegg is well worth a look if you're after an RTX 2080 powered laptop on the cheap.

All of them are going to be full-fat G-Sync monitors, and they're all going to employ next-gen IPS dual-driver panels from AU Optronics to help deliver…

Only Nvidia’s RTX 30 Founders Edition GPUs will have dual axial fans and 12-pin power cables

Official images of third party Nvidia RTX 3000 cards show that the unusual dual axial fan and 12-pin power connector design shown off during last night's Nvidia Ampere reveal will only be found on the Nvidia Founders Editions of each card. The double-sided fans of the RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 are arguably one of the most striking features of Nvidia's next-gen graphics…

Feature: A double whammy of a dual-screen gaming laptop

Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 review

The Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 is quite possibly one of the most ludicrous gaming laptops I've ever come across. Specs-wise, it has all the bells and whistles you could possibly want. There's a brand-new 10th Gen Intel Core i9 processor in here, along with a massive 32GB of RAM, an RTX 2080 Super Max-Q graphics chip and a pair of 1TB NVMe SSDs RAIDed…

A pretty well-specced Asus gaming laptop has had $250 shaved off it over on Best Buy today if you’re in the market for more frames per second than what you’re currently pushing.

Feature: In a good way, of course

The Asus Zephyrus Duo could be the Wii U of gaming laptops

The Asus ROG Zephryus Duo is unlike any other gaming laptop I've ever seen. It's one of the first wave of dual-screen gaming laptops coming out over the course of this year, and it's both baffling and beautiful in equal measure. It's beautiful because the engineering on its secondary 14.1in display is just so damn gorgeous. Seriously, I made a GIF of its sturdy, rock…

Get over $100 off Asus’ best 144Hz 1440p gaming monitor

Last week, you may have noticed that I've started rounding up all the gaming monitor deals of the week in their own dedicated deals page. However, some deals, like today's offer on the excellent Asus ROG Strix XG32VQR, just don't last that long, as Amazon US are only offering $113 off this curved 2560x1440, 144Hz HDR monitor for the next 17 hours or so.

Feature: GIFs are the new laptop stickers

Asus’ Zephyrus G14 laptop is a compact powerhouse with a strange animated LED lid

As well as a plentiful supply of new gaming monitors to coo over this week, this year's CES tech bonanza has also brought us dozens of new gaming laptops, including the world's most powerful 14in laptop, the Asus Zephyrus G14. But it's not so much the G14's souped up innards that have me all aflutter (although its 4th Gen AMD Ryzen CPU and RTX 2060…

Feature: The next evolution of the gaming laptop?

The good, the bad and the ugly of tomorrow’s dual-screen gaming laptops

When I first saw HP's Omen X 2S dual-screen gaming laptop a couple of months ago, I thought they were having a laugh. After all, what could you possibly do with such a tiny secondary display above the main keyboard when you're playing games? It screamed 'gimmick' at the time, but after visiting Intel's Open House event last week (in between getting enslaved by the…
