The new ROG Autumn 2019 range features several next-gen devices with robust components, pledging to meet the demands of today’s gamers.
The lineup boasts NVIDIA Turning graphics and Intel’s recently announced 9th generation iCore processors – found in 2019 laptops from the likes of MSI, Acer’s Predator, Lenovo and Dell.
Though unveiled today, Australian pricing and release dates for each model are yet to be confirmed.

Regardless of the chassis or target demographic, ASUS asserts its ROG gaming laptops integrate intelligent cooling – optimising performance with the right hardware and software mix.
New to the range is the ‘ROG Mothership‘, which re-imagines the form factor of a traditional gaming laptop.
Instead of lying flat on a desk, the ROG Mothership stands tall and provides unrestricted access to a cooling system on the back.
The device’s keyboard separates and folds for ultra flexibility, enabling better freedom for wired or wireless positioning. Detaching the keyboard also reveals four speakers.
The ROG Mothership has several display options to suit passionate gamers and professional content creators, complemented by an ultrafast FHD panel with 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time.

With its 18.7mm chassis and narrow bezels, the GX701 claims to be the most compact 17-inch gaming laptop yet.
With a GeForce RTX 2080 GPU pushed to 1230Mhz at 100W with ROG Boost, the device seeks to surpass traditional specs on most ultra-portable machines.
The laptop’s ROG exclusive GPU switch enables users to switch between NVIDIA G-SYNC mode and Optimus mode for longer battery life. This further enhanced by a 76Wh battery.
A special version is also available with a HDR panel, catering to content creators and creative professionals.
The new Zephyrus S GX531 seeks to “set the standard for slimness”, boasting high performance specs in a “remarkably compact body.”
Just 15mm thick, the product encompasses a 15.6-inch display with narrow bezels.
Innovative AAS cooling seeks to take GeForce RTX 2080 up to the same ROG Boost speed as the larger GX701.
The new ROG Strix Scar III was made in collaboration with professional esports teams, catering to the demand of professional players with demand for 240Hz displays.
With a high refresh rate, the device seeks to offer a competitive edge in fast paced FPS games,
