This RTX 2060-powered Asus laptop is $250 off today

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. The Asus ROG GU502GV usually sells for $1750, but Best Buy has knocked it down to $1500. Not pocket change by any means, but you can rest assured that you’re getting a great…

This RTX 2060-powered Asus gaming laptop is $270 off right now

If you’re in the market for a gaming laptop and have your card details perilously saved to the Best Buy website, then this deal might well be for you, American readers. This 15.6in Asus TUF FX505DV gaming laptop is down 25% in the Best Buy sale, going for $830 rather than its usual price of $1100. For that, you get a Ryzen 5 3550H processor…

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. 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…

Asus have made the world’s first 360Hz gaming monitor

It's CES over in Las Vegas right now (that's the Consumer Electronics Show to give it its full and proper name), where hardware manufacturers from around the world offer up their latest gadgets and gizmos to give us a glimpse of all the cool things they've got planned for 2020. This year, the hot topic seems to be mad gaming monitors, and Asus have just…

Asus and GamesPlanet team up for cheap game deals

Good news for anyone with a bit of Asus-branded gaming kit today, as the kings of RGB hardware have announced they've teamed up with the folks over at GamesPlanet to launch a brand-new game deals program. There are quite a few catches involved, but provided you're willing to sign up for an Asus account, register any Asus product you own and install their free Armoury…

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…

It’s Asus week on Amazon UK and these are the best deals

It begins. Just when you thought you'd have to wait until next month's Black Friday bonanza to get some great PC hardware deals, Asus have gone and pulled the trigger early with their very own week of deals over on Amazon UK. Starting right now, you can currently bag yourself some pretty good savings on everything from ultra expensive laptops to ultra wide gaming monitors.…

Feature: But the XG32VQR is a great 1440p gaming monitor regardless

Asus ROG Strix XG32VQR review: HDR is still a pain in the ass

As 2560x1440 gaming monitors go, the 32in Asus ROG Strix XG32VQR is probably one of the better screens you can buy today. I'd even go as far as saying it's potential best gaming monitor material if ever suddenly became a lot cheaper than our current 1440p recommendation, the MSI Optix MPG27CQ, but even at its current price of £489 / $550, the XG32VQR is is…

Feature: It'll cost you, though

Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero review: The X570 king of USB ports

The Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero has probably more USB ports than you'll ever need, but if you're thinking of building a new PC with one of AMD's Ryzen 3000 CPUs in it and have a bunch of peripherals you want to plug into it, then this one is almost certainly going to fit the bill. It's going to be a pretty big bill, mind,…

Feature: Should you spend more on an overclocked GPU?

RTX 2070 Super benchmark showdown: Nvidia vs Zotac vs Asus

Nvidia's RTX 2070 Super is a great graphics card if you're after smooth, 1440p performance, but when you stack up the £475 / $499 Nvidia Founders Edition card I reviewed against AMD's new Radeon RX 5700 XT, it starts to struggle at bit on the old value for money front - just have a look at my big RTX 2070 Super vs RX 5700 XT…

Asus ROG Zephyrus G GA502 review: A slim 1080p gaming laptop for just over a grand

When AMD said they were going to get serious about sticking more of their 3rd Gen Ryzen 3000 H mobile CPU chips into proper gaming laptops this year, they really weren't kidding. Take the Asus ROG Zephyrus G, the ever so slightly fatter cousin of the ultra slim Asus ROG Zephyrus S I reviewed earlier in the year. It's not an outright AMD machine -…

Feature: Tough love

Asus TUF Gaming M5 review: Small but mighty?

I was a big fan of Asus' TUF Gaming K5 mech-brane keyboard when I looked at it last month, so today I thought I'd turn my attention to its equally TUF mouse companion, the Asus TUF Gaming M5, and see if it's best gaming mouse material. See what they did there? Coated in the same durable TUF stuff that makes it more resistant to sweat,…

Feature: A tough act to beat

Asus TUF Gaming K5 review: All hail the mech-brane

You've heard of membrane keyboards. You've heard of mechanical keyboards. You've probably even heard some keyboards described as 'membranical', which (aside from being a crime against the English language) are the kind of hybrid gaming keyboards you might consider buying if you're unsure whether to go full CLACK with a proper mechanical one. The Asus TUF Gaming K5 falls into this latter category, although Asus…

Feature: ...with a not so super slim price

Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX531 review: A super slim Nvidia RTX gaming laptop

If you've ever had to lug your laptop around all day, you'll know the importance of having one that's thin, light and doesn't kill your shoulders after spending eight to ten hours in a backpack. I certainly do, and let me tell you, hauling around anything over 2kg for 8-10 hours everyday is absolute murder on the old spine. At 2.1kg, the Asus ROG Zephyrus…

Feature: ...and RGBs that will scar you for life

Asus ROG Strix Scar II review: RTX on the go

Nvidia's first crop of RTX gaming laptops are finally here and the first one to slide across my desk is Asus' ROG Strix Scar II GL504GW. Packed with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of RAM and one of Nvidia's new RTX 2070 chips, this 15.6in laptop is primed and ready to take full advantage of its 1920x1080 resolution display and 144Hz refresh rate, but…

Feature: The BFG of gaming monitors

Nvidia BFGD: Everything we know about their Big Format Gaming Displays, including price, specs and release date

Nvidia's BFGDs (or Big Format Gaming Displays, to you and me) are no longer going to be called BFGDs. Instead, as of January 2019, these massive 65in gaming displays are now part of Nvidia's wider G-Sync Ultimate family, which also includes their significantly smaller (but just as pricey) G-Sync HDR monitors such as the 27in Acer Predator X27 and Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ. Why the…

CES 2019: I take it back, the Asus ROG Mothership is the maddest gaming laptop I’ve ever seen

The Asus ROG Mothership is a preposterous piece of technology. I know I said earlier in the week that the Acer Predator Triton 900 was the maddest gaming laptop I've ever seen, but this desktop replacement really takes the biscuit. Not only does this huge great thing need a kickstand to prop up its 4.7kg chassis, but its keyboard can also be folded in half…
