Introduction - ASUS is going everywhere in 2018

If there is a single phrase that would describe ASUS' Republic of Gamers Computex booth, it is that 2018 is ROG's year of branching out, extending their reach into new product lineup to make the sub-brand even more prevalent within the gaming market.    

This brand extension goes beyond PC gaming, with ASUS extending ROG into the phone market, delivering a gaming smartphone that is like no other.

On the PC side, ROG has also extended onto every facet of the PC building space, leaving very few components unROGified, with SSDs and DRAM being the only two components that have not been absorbed into the Republic of Gamers. It seems like ASUS' Republic plans to annex some new territory.

2018 marks the first year at OC3D has attended Computex, leaving gobsmacked by how large and over the top everything is, even London's largest gaming events pale in comparison to Computex, where everyone seems just as keen to ogle new hardware as we are.

Aye, gotta see what the screen to bezel ratio and camera's are like. I would like to see a 256GB storage option though. I can't imagine what the price jump between 128GB and 512GB is going to be.

Jfc the thickness of the Ryujin block though! But I can't say I'm surprised with it housing a fan for the VRMsQuote

Interesting stuff. To answer Tom's questions:

Phone... I really like the looks. I don't care much about addons, and connectivity. It is a phone. What is the point of caring a suitcase of addons? At home you have PC. Why do you need docking station? You won't carry it around. Joypad thingy, and that dual screen is good if you are traveling.

For AiO i really like the "classical" shape. Fan to cool VRM... pointless. And the looks... You know what ASUS... too much exists. Don't overdo it.

PSU is amazing. I would really like that this type of fancy PSUs at least make PSU covers removable.

Case i don't like at all. I don't like writing all over it. And here also ASUS you are overdoing it. It is a gaming rig. It will get really hot. Don't put a slab of glass in the front. Design vents that work.

Have a nice time Tom. Quote

Gotta admit, I initially didn't like the looks of the Ryuo, but now I think it's glorious! You also have to appreciate the resolution of the mini display. I thought it'd be more of a pixel mush

Also kinda liking the phone. My contract is running out early next year, so I might consider that if the pricing is somewhere near the affordable mark. Let's just hope they get their energy management right or I can already see problems arising concerning broken batteries, that broke because the user attached and detached the gamepad/powerbank too often...

I don't really care much about the PSUs as they're a big overkill for me. Hopefully ASUS is bringin some 500W soon with all that fancy stuff.Quote
