As you might expect from one of the top League of Legends teams, the ROG Strix SKT T1 Hero Edition is optimised for multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) gaming.
The ROG Strix SKT T1 Hero Edition laptop is branded with the SKT T1 logo and features an Intel Core i7 processor and an Nvidia GeForce 1060 graphics card. The keyboard has upgraded switches with 20-million-keystroke durability. The ROG Strix SKT T1 Hero Edition also comes emblazoned with both ASUS ROG and SK Telecom T1 logos.
ASUS's G7xx series of gaming laptops has been a very successful design in the 17-inch gaming laptop segment. Pricing and availability is unavailable at the moment, though Asus did promise the Bezel-free Kit will be available for purchase sometime in 2018.
The ROG G703 is available now for $3499 Dollars. It is powered by a factory-overclocked 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor (up to 4.8GHz full Hexa-Core) with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics. A more practical element of the design is the expansion bay and eSports-ready easy-swap SSD tray. That case has a transparent side window for ogling the fancy stuff on the inside.
The lighting can be controlled with ASUS Aura Sync, which allows synchronized lighting on compatible devices such as keyboards, mice, and headphones. The ROG Strix GL12 is coming in April but the price is still unknown.
We haven't mentioned Asus in our CES 2018 coverage so far but as usual the Taiwanese PC systems and components giant has a bountiful selection of new goodies to share in Las Vegas. Check out the ROF Strix Flare, which is an RGB mechanical gaming keyboard outfitted with Cherry MX RGB switches. The backlit keys are individually programmable and there is a swappable, illuminated acrylic insert emblazoned with the ROG badge. First up is the ROG Aura Terminal, a four-channel addressable RGB controller that works with Aura Sync and the company's new ROG Halo technology. It looks like a small webcam and has a magnetic base for easy attachment to any metal surface. The Spotlight can be rotated 360° within its aluminum enclosure to ensure the logo is always displayed upright.
Next up is the Asus Bezel-free Kit, which is made of vertical refractive lenses meant to hide the bezels in multi-monitor setups. Using light refraction technology, the physical seams between are optically erased from your viewpoint, while enhancing gameplay.
